Hi All!!  Have you ever seen the fun minis at Your Next Stamp.  I just love these little stamps which are smaller than the original stamps and perfect for tags.  Great way to coordinate projects.  I had a great time using my scraps and creating and coloring with these minis.

 Sinice YNS is sponsoring the the fabulous Etsy Inspired challenge, I decided to create my first creation for that challenge. The Etsy inspiration shop for this challenge is Claylicious, for functional and decorative pottery.

I used this image here on the Craylicious  site for my inspiration on my first tag.  I used the mini Shopping Fhiona stamp and colored it orange and blue to follow the color scheme.  The dp, which is from my scraps, mimics the swirls on the pottery.

Set of two nesting oval dishes in turquoise and pink

To play along in the Etsy Inspired Challenge:
**Go to, look around, and find an item or two that inspires you.
**Make any *NEW* creation that you would like and post a link on the Etsy Inspired challenge blog by Friday, February 25th, 2011 at noon Pacific time.
**Give credit to the shop/item you found your inspiration from and link back the Etsy Inspired.

After creating one tag, I could not stop at one are a few more I created. What is the most fun of all is using some of those scraps you keep saving!!

Lacey, owner of Stamp and Create, has written before about a little boy Luke and his battle with complications from Spinal Meningitis. You can read about his story here and her Card drive for Luke here.

She purchased a special image called "Little Luke" as a fundraiser for Luke and his family (Luke likes Star Wars which is why she chose this image)...

100% of the sale of this digital stamp will be donated to Luke's family to help with medical bills and travel expenses for his treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

She has started this image as a digital stamp, but has plans to turn it into a rubber stamp if there is enough interest.
Please help this family by purchasing this digital stamp.

It would be great if you would help spread the word as well.
You can grab the image above and link it to this post here at the Stamp and Create  store.

These little tags are lovely. I think tags are always forgotten and people make loads of cards, and forget about the gift tags. These are lovely, and you could even use one as a topper for a matching card. Great job. Thanks for joining in with our die/punches theme at Incy Wincy this week. Hope to see you again next week. Annette xx
