I have three new cards to show you using these new stamps so bear with me. You can also see the other designer samples in the Saturday Evening Post gallery.
We've moved card
Stamps: Saturday Evening Post License Plates by Cornish Heritage Farms (background), Mona Lisa Moments Classic Essential Expressions by Cornish Heritage Farms (sentiment), Rummage Bin Journal Box by Cornish Heritage Farms (postmark stamp)
On this card I heat embossed the image in brown and coloured the image and added some Stickles for sparkle.
Here's the new blog address: http://becreative.cornishheritagefarms.com/
I'll leave you with a Christmas card I made recently using a snowman stamp from the Kim Hughes Heart Warmers set. (Note you can also buy Snowie Sophie as a separate stamp either mounted or unmounted).

Here's another sneak peek at one of the three new Saturday Evening Post stamps that is being released next week at Cornish Heritage Farms. This one is called "Fall Harvest" and will be available on October 28th.
For this card first I stamped the image in Staz On ink onto water colour paper and coloured in with my water colour pencils. Then I took my stipple brush and Ranger distressing ink and started to swirl over the entire stamped image. I really love the way this turned out. It turns the entire image very vintage but you still get to see the colouring through it. Just between you and I this is a great way to cover up less than stellar colouring *wink*.
To finish off the card, I did some sewing and added the sign stamp from the Rummage Bin set over top of the Post part of the stamp. It was actually a perfect fit!

Ink: Staz On Timber Brown, Adirondack Espresso, Ranger Vintage Photo distressing ink

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Mellow

Last week they asked me if they could use two cards I did using the Vita Bella line from My Little Yellow Bicycle. Of course I was honoured and said yes! You can see the post here which features tons of fabulous projects from all the MYLYB lines. My two cards can be seen at the bottom of the post.
Thanks for letting me share!

All I did was take one of the sheets of the Thomas Kinkade Masculine Series papers and cut it in half to create a 8 x 4” card base. I stamped the “inspire” word and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I stamped on the bottom with the Daisy Chain Scrapblock in black ink and added a small strip of paper and hemp twine.
Simple as that!

This is one of the stamps, called “Bird Watching”. It is absolutely perfect for masculine cards and as you can see from my sneak peek it lends itself really well to brayering.
This card was made using only cardstock and stamping. I brayered the sky background onto glossy paper and stamped the image over top in black ink. For the card base, I used Ranger Distress Inks and applied them with a stipple brush. Then I stamped with a Scrapblock in black ink. A very simple card for that man in your life.

For today’s So Sketchy card sketch I created this tall fall themed card (8” x 4”) with a little peek through window. On the bottom I used my new Cuttlebug pumpkin harvest fall folder and lightly sanded to allow the white to show through. The rest of the papers are from this year’s K and Co fall stack.
Window cards are a fun way to create interest on both the inside and outside of your card. I’ll definitely be trying a few more of these!

Rumour has it that there is a give away on their blog you might want to check out (although if you don't, more chances for me to win LOL!)
Now if only I could find a local store that carried all this yumminess.
Wouldn't this make a fun card to mail someone out of the country, or even for a Canada Day greeting?

Making masculine themed cards is super easy using the Thomas Kinkade papers from Cornish Heritage Farms.
For this card I used some of the papers from the masculine paper set and created the wood grain background with a backgrounder stamp to add to the wood-sy feel of the card.

First of all, a reminder that we have some challenges, chat and PRIZES available over at Cornish Heritage Farms. We have three holiday card challenges to keep you busy in the forums and you can also come and chat with us from 2-5 pm EST.
Secondly, Scrapbook and Cards Magazine is celebrating on their blog. They asked me to create a card for this special day and this is what I came up with. If you are not familiar with this fabulous FREE Canadian magazine, they have a special card donation program called “Bring a Smile to a Child”. They collect and distribute birthday cards to children’s hospitals across Canada. So if you have a few extra cards lying around why not send them to this worthy cause? I sent them this card and I hope it brings a smile to a child’s face.
1. Create an A2 standard card base (measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4) using card stock of your choice (or premade card base).
2. Take zig-zag edged cardstock and trim to fit inside the card base as shown. Adhere to card base.
3. Trim a piece of patterned paper to fit inside the zig-zag cardstock and adhere.
4. Stamp turtle stamp onto green patterned paper and cut out. Stamp eyes onto white paper and cut out. Glue white eyes onto cut out turtle. Stamp cupcake onto white paper and colour as desired.
5. Using scalloped border punch, punch strip out of red patterned paper same width as background paper.
6. Cut piece of orange paper same width as background paper, and stamp with sentiment in bottom left corner.
7. Emboss white paper with birthday embossing folder and cut to same width as background paper.
8. Adhere orange paper, red scalloped border and embossed cardstock as shown to center of background paper. Adhere turtle and cupcake cut outs to card. Adhere chipboard candles to card. Add bow to candles.
9. Add some shimmer to the card by adding Stickles as desired.

This is the first of three cards I created for this month’s samples. As you can see, you can add a bit of pizazz to your clear card base by stamping on it with Staz On ink (or equivalent)
