Did you hear that Cornish Heritage Farms is having a big pre-Christmas SALE???? The more you buy, the more you save! So why not pick up some gifts AND some stuff for yourself?
I'll leave you with a very quick card I did using the distressed grid Scrapblock and the wedding sentiments set both from Cornish Heritage Farms. As you can see you can use the grid Scrapblock to give a graphic look as well as distressed. The little people are Cuttlebug dies.

The Peerless water colour papers are so amazing to work with---the colours are very rich and of course I love the portability of the book. If you've never seen them, check out the link above.
For this card I paired the elk image with some papers from the Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy line. I cut out the watercoloured image and did the "burnt edge" technique with distress inks.

Here's a card I created with the inchie stamp set. I stamped various images from the set onto some of the Scrapblocks paper and then punched them out with a Marvy 1" square punch. I then "quilted" them onto a scalloped square and finished off the card with some lace, ribbon and flowers.
These inchie stamps are so much fun to play with....be sure to check out all the other design team creations in the gallery.

One of the papers I like the best in the Thomas Kinkade Christmas pack from Cornish Heritage Farms is the winter scene with the deer. This is one of the large sheets of the design.
This was a really quick and simple card.
All I did was cut the deer paper using my mega curved rectangles Nestabilities die and inked the edges. Then I added some Flower Soft and glitter paint to make it look snowy. I mounted it on a card base of the new Basic Grey paper and added some checkered ribbon.
