I know Inkadinkadoo has come out with a line of stamps just for inchies. You can go to their website and type inchies in the search box and their new stamp sets pop up.

You can also try inchiearts.com

Yup, inchiearts.com. Lockhart Stamps also have several images that are for inchies. Many of my inchie magnets, in the gallery, are actually Lockhart stamps.

Jeanette was a guest designer on this blog recently, she borrowed my black & white then reverse idea:

http://inchybyinch.blogspot.com

Also Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine had an article on these in their Arpil 2009 issue. They are even the cover art for the issue.

Good Luck with your swaps

Thanks a bunch, Stacy, for posting the link to this cool blog -- Lots of inspiration there!
I finally framed & hung more than 50 inchies I've made & received in swaps.
It turned out Really nicely, having some on display.

My favorite swap was the recycled inchies one. It really was cool to go through my "saved" stuff and punch out inchies (okay, maybe I "touched" them up a bit--had to make sure they were good enough). But really fun. My favorite new way of inchie creation is looking through images I've stamped, didn't use but saved and giving them life as inchies. Very fun. I love admiring the amazing inchies that I chose from that swap.

I'm hoping once the current inchie round robin swap is finished, we can have another go round. Surely our scrap piles have grown since January, right?

I took an ATC sized (2.5"x3.5") piece of thin cardboard, heavier than cardstock but thin enough to punch, and made an inchie 'window' template to help me find possible inchie fodder among my larger stamp images. I punched both a 1" square & 1" circle. For ATC's & tags, I made clear templates from stencil plastic. I can lay any of these templates over any image to see if it will fit the format I'm using. The clear ones are also handy when I want to cut a particular image out of patterned paper. I just trace a pencil line around the template after I center it over the chosen image. Don't forget to label your templates! Doing so will remind you to not throw away those 'scraps' laying about on your desk as well as helping you to keep track of the clear ones.
