Celebrating Nature

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge  at Cornish Heritage Farms and I'd love to see your cards celebrating nature in all it's glory.  I love the Birdhouse Digital Stamp - it's the perfect depiction of nature with the bird and surrounding leaves.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and then fussy cut it as I wanted it to stand out against the background.  I've used the Netting Backgrounder stamp, for the background, inking it with brown ink and stamping it on blue cardstock. 

 
 
Across the center of the card I added strips of brown and blue and added the sentiment from the Birthday Greetings stamp set.

Elf Shoes

Hi everyone, today is my day for posting on the So Suzy blog and I'm using one of the newest Christmas stamps - Elf Shoes.   Just think of the fun creations you can make with them.

I thought they'd be cute on candy pouches for the holiday.

Each envelope was embossed with an older Cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked.  In keeping with Christmas, one was inked in red and the other in green.



The Elf Shoes were colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut.



Coordinating colors of die cut panels were added to the bags and the Elf Shoes were placed on top.  Dew Drops were added to the shoes like little bells.


Aren't they cute?  Don't forget to stop by the store to check out all the wonderful stamps available.

Thanks for stopping by today.

It's a Boy!!!!

Good morning everyone, I've got a post on the Art Anthology blog today. 

It's a canvas for the new parents-to-be.  And since they are having a boy, I've used lots of blue and brown.  It will look awesome in the new nursery.


I've used lots of Art Anthology paints and products from Makin's Clay.  Change up the color of your clay by mixing it with paint.  Messy, but lots of fun.  I've used clay to create Baby Boy using a mold and then I've rolled out the clay and punched baby feet.

Cute, don't you think!  Please stop by the blog for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Blog hopping with Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto


Larissa Collins Pittman's photo.

Hi everyone, today we are blog hopping with Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto Crafts.  Ann Butler has some amazing stencils, stamps, inks and paints that work beautifully with Deflecto products.



Supplies:
ColorBox Art Screens by Ann Buter - Wave and Stars
ColorBox Background Basics by Ann Butler - Basket1 and Picnic1
ColorBox Crafter's by Ann Butler - Berry, Deep Woods, Canyon
Earth Safe Finishes - Limelight, Sheer Copper, Berry
Deflecto Frame -  8" x 10" Craft Frame
Helmar - Tacky Craft Glue


I've used Deflecto's 8" x 10" Craft Frame for this project.  I began by using molding paste through the Wave and Stars Art Screens.

 
While waiting for the molding paste to dry, I created the background.  Using white cardstock, I painted it with Sheer Copper Iridescents.  Once dry, I randomly stamped the Basket1 Stamp using Canyon ink.  I didn't want complete coverage so I was not careful about how/where I stamped.
 

To create the flowers, I stamped the Picnic1 Stamp on white cardstock using Berry Crafter's Ink.  After die cutting, I edged some of the flowers with Berry Iridescents, then formed them using the handle of a paint brush.  I then assembled them into clusters with brads.

 
The flowers were placed in the left corner using Tacky Craft Glue for a good strong bond.  To adhere the yellow flower soft  to the flower centers I also used Tacky Craft Glue.  The leaves were die cut from white cardstock and then painted with Limelight Iridescents and edged with Deep Woods Crafter's Ink.  They were then inserted amongst the flowers.



A photo was matted with 2 layers of cardstock then added to the stamped background sheet and was  then inserted into the frame.  The beauty of this frame is that the photo page can be changed out when you want to showcase another photo.



Please stop by everyone's blog and see their creations.  And please leave some love along the way.

Winter friendship

It's a new challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms.  Did you know that today is Pandemonium day?  It's a day to go with the flow and see what happens!!!  Today I'd love to see your quick cards, created in 10 minutes (well, we can stretch that to 20 minutes!!) or less.  Sometimes you just have to work quickly so show us what you can do.

Since I wanted to use the new  Friend Expressions stamp set, I paired it with the Village Snow Scene  digital stamp which I've colored with Copic Markers in specific spots just for effect (and that cuts down on the creating time!)



I die cut around the image, then added a friendship phrase from the  Friend Expressions stamp set which was also die cut before adding it to the card.




There you have it.  Created in about 20 minutes.

Confidence is Sexy

Hi everyone, today is my day for posting on the So Suzy blog and I'm using two of my favorite stamps  - the Slinky Black Dress and Confidence.


 
Don't you love this stamp?
 
 
I've paired them with Graphic 45 papers because they just scream femininity.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Blog Hop with Clearsnap and Clear Scraps

Hi everyone, the design teams from Clearsnap and Clear Scraps are blog hopping this week. 

For my first card, I used Clear Scraps 6" Fern Leaf Stencil to create a background.  I inked the stencil with ColorBox Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins in Passion Pink and Glitz Gold.  The panel was then inked with Passion Pink and matted with brown cardstock.  I tied white ribbon around the panel before adhering it to the card.
 
 
 
A rose stamp was inked with Passion Pink and Glam Green before die cutting.  It was mounted on ovals and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  The sentiment was stamped in Passion Pink, die cut and then tied to the ribbon with twine.
 
 
Inside I added another panel that had been created the same as the front panel.   Congratulaions Design Adhesives and Goldmine Designer Foils were included inside for a quick sentiment.



For my next card, I used the Clear Scraps Oval Deco Top Mirror Frame.   Using ColorBox Crafter's by Ann Butler In Desert Sand, I stamped a design around the frame with the Clear Scraps 6" Fern Stencil
  

To showcase the frame, I die cut an oval in the card front and adhered the frame around the opening.    Inside the card, I stamped a birthday sentiment and added a little color with Gold Lame Smooch Accent Ink.

 

This frame created a fun effect for a card, plus it's light weight so it won't add much to the card's weight when mailing.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

The best thing in life.......

Hi everyone.  It's so easy to pair an amazing sentiment with some pattern papers and keep the focus on the sentiment. 

This awesome sentiment is from So Suzy Stamps.  Check out the store for a great variety of stamps.


I easily lined up the sentiment with the help of Kellycraft's Get It Straight Laser Square and Multi Mat. 

 
The Laser Square also helps when centering the sentiment on the card.


And a beautiful card comes together easily.

 
Thanks for stopping by today.
