CHF32 Sketch Challenge

Kristine challenged us to use this sketch:
And here is the card I made using it:

I used a digi image and saying from Cornish Heritage Farms, some pink paper, and some green.  The grass is done with a punch, the clouds are die cuts, and I added some sponging, flowers, and googly eyes.

Please join us, using your CHF stamps or digi images, linking  your card HERE.  You just might win some new stuff from CHF!  See  you next time.

CCEE1330 Color Blocking

 For Sabrina's last challenge, she has chose COLOR BLOCKING - with paper as well as stamps.

I sure hope this qualifies.  The bg is indeed color blocked, and each of the panels is stamped differently, so I'm going with it.

I found this fun digi stamp on the internet, and really couldn't wait to use it.  All the images are colored, and some are cut out and paper pieced.  I like it!

Please join us in the fun, linking your card HERE so we can enjoy it too.  Come back to find out who our hostess is for August.

CHF Elvis the King


This week I decided to post the card I almost gave my DH for Father's Day.  I made two, and went with the other. 

This is an old image from CHF I just had to ink up!

Next week we have a sketch challenge from Kristine.  I hope  you will join us.

Faux Metal Fun

I had such a good time (and made such a mess!) with this metal foil tape technique.

It was the challenge at SCS last Monday, and I just didn't get around to looking at it until yesterday.  I happened to ask DH if he had any of this tape, and he had two rolls!

Now that I know how to do this, I'll try it again.  I need practice.

CCEE1329 Sing A Song

Sabrina challenged us this week to make a card inspired by a song.  I chose "I'm In Love With You, Honey", a song from the 1930's.  Here are the words:

    I'm in love with you, Honey,
    Say you love me too, Honey,
    No one else will do, Honey,
    Seems funny but it's true.

    Loved you from the start, Honey,
    Bless your little HEART, Honey,
    Every day would be so sunny
    Honey, with you.

I just loved this image from Melonheadz!

CHF31 Lighthouse/Beach

This week I chose our theme at Cornish Heritage Farms - Lighthouse or Beach.  I used a CHF digi stamp #1612, coloring only the spotlighted portion of this wonderful scene.  I added waves at the bottom, and voila!

Please join us HERE, and see what else has been done by the design team.  You just might win some stamps!

Join us again next week.

CCEE1328 Collage

Sabrina's theme this week at CCEE is to create a collage panel, using at least four different stamps.  This is something that intrigues me, but I find difficult.  I am really pleased with how this one came out, on the first try, yet!!!

I kept the travel theme, using five different images, then inked and punched out letters to spell TRAVEL.

Please join us, linking your card HERE.

See you next week!

Thomas Kinkade Week at CHF

Kristine had a new technique using TK stamps.......spotlighting with another color.

IRL, you can tell the difference very easily between the black background and the gray popped oval, edged  in black.

Each month features a card made with an image from Thomas Kinkade found at Cornish Heritage Farms.  Check back with us again.

Blue and White

This card was made for the Mixability challenge on SCS.  The idea was to use different textures, media, etc. 

I embossed the blue cardstock background, then foam-brushed on white acrylic paint.  Embossing some vellum, I punched out butterflies, and added pearls.  the final thing was a ribbon bow, but now I'm not sure .... maybe the best thing to do would be to take the ribbon off and add a couple of large pearls in the upper corner to balance it off.  What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend ..... .we celebrate with family and friends tomorrow.

CCEE1327 Let's Go To The Beach

Sabrina is our hostess for the month of July. Here is her challenge, in her own words:
"I grew up by the seaside and we spent most summer days there - when it wasn't raining,  Bring your Independence Day picnic along if you want, just keep the sand out of the sandwiches."

I brought the whole beach, collected shells, and left my flip-flops at the edge of my blanket.

Please join us, linking your card HERE, and show us what her words mean to you!

See you next week for Sabrina's next theme.

CHF30 Summer

Welcome back to another Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge.

Steph chose as our theme "Summer", so I used this fun digi #352F called SUN.

I added only sky. sand, and flip flops.  I think that's all the summer needs.

Please join us, and link your card HERE on our blog, where you'll find the connections to the DT.
