Guess what's coming up next Tuesday at Cornish Heritage Farms (Sept 8th)? Kim Hughes stamp release day! The release is the last in the set of four "tree" sets. Next Tuesday you can add "Winter Trees" to your sets of spring, summer and fall trees.
This set has some super cute winter themed images. For this card I used the skeleton tree and the little snowman.
First I brayered a 4 x 4 peice of glossy cardstock using Tsukineko Kaleidacolor ink (Blue Breeze) and left a bit of white space at the bottom. I cut a peice of white paper for the snow and glued it at the bottom. I stamped the tree with Versafine ink and heat set directly on the card. The snowman was paper peiced and added to the card. To finish the card off, I coloured the scarf with a Copic marker, added lots of clear stickles for shimmer and mounted onto a premade DCWV glitter card base.
Supplies: Stamps: Kim Hughes Winter Trees by Cornish Heritage Farms, Ink: Kaleidecolour ink, Versafine black, Paper: Ranger glossy paper, Georgia Pacific cardstock, DCWV glitter card base, Accessories:Copic markers, Stickles

Doesn't this sparkly and scrappy card look yummy?
I simply stamped two ice cream cone images from the Kim Hughes' Little Girl set (Cornish Heritage Farms), coloured them and cut them out. I added some Stickles to make them sparkly. I used some glitter chipboard letters for my sentiment.
Supplies: Stamps: Kim Hughes Little Gal by Cornish Heritage Farms, Paper: WRMK, Accessories: Glitter chipboard letters Forever in Time, Stickles, Copic markers, Fiskars border punch

You my have noticed in the scrapping world these days that vintage is HOT and this 6 x 6 Scrapblock stamp is an awesome way to achieve that look in ANY custom colour you want.
This is a card I did with this new beauty. You can see that I stamped the new Scrapblock onto orange paper using Ranger distress Ink to create my own custom patterned paper.
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink Orange Marmalade, Versafine Smokey Grey, Memento black
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Accessories: Copic markers

Since yesterday was Canada Day and I had no plans except crafting I finally got to play along with the Wednesday Sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers (sketch 235). I print the sketches each and every week but this is the first time I've actually played along.
Here's a more close up look at the set.
I'll be back later this week with another card from the set.

For this card I used a very simple resist technique using Versamark ink and brayering. First I stamped the image (ATC Botanical Bliss by Cornish Heritage Farms) onto glossy cardstock using Versamark ink. They I brayered over top with Kaleidacolor ink and allowed to dry for a few minutes. Then wipe the excess ink with a tissue.
In order to highlight the resist technique I kept the card very simple by just adding some die cut flowers and a journalling box (all K and Co.).

This is one of those situations where the photo does not do this card justice. It's difficult to tell but this card is super glittery. I heat embossed the scrapblock in silver on dark paper. The star is inked in platinum ink with stickles around the outside.
Ink: Silver chalk ink, Versamark (for embossing), Versafine black
Paper: Basic Grey
Accesories: Prima bling, Stickles, Chipboard star
