CHF’s Grand Re-Opening Blog Hop!

CHF-WinteryHello-wm

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

It time to join Cornish Heritage Farms for our for the Cornish Heritage Farms Grand Re-Opening Blog Hop!!. The Cornish Heritage Farms web site is now open for business so make sure you check it out once you have finished with the blog hop.

The hop started at Cornish Heritage Farms blog, so if you just happened to hop onto my blog you might like to head back to the Cornish Heritage Farms blog so you don’t miss out  on any of the exciting new.

I have three cards to share with you today using some of the digital stamps now available from Cornish Heritage Farms.

For my first card I combined the mail box and the sentiment in my Photoshop program  which I printed out and then colored. I love this image, of course I don’t get snow where I live but I love playing with snow images … maybe it will help cool me down while we are having our hot weather LOL.

CHF-Christmas-Snowman-wm

For my second card I used this cute snowman digital stamp which I then cut out using Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die, I masked the snowman and then used my copic airbrush to add the blue sky. The sentiment I used here is also available from Cornish Heritage Farms and works well with all those snowmen images.

CHF-Baby-Boy-wm

For my final card today I am used this cute baby digital image, I needed a baby boy card to give to the daughter of a friend of mine who is having a baby any day now so I decided to use this. The blue card on the base  was embossed using an embossing folder and I used Picket Fence Distress Stain to highlight the raised areas of the embossing.

We will be randomly be giving away 8 gift certificates!

I love the snowman. Putting snowmen on cards is the only guarantee of playing with snow I get! IF we get snow, it's rarely enough for a snowman.

I was looking at the baby image earlier. Your card is adorable.

Frances! Love your cards as always...
