Christmas in July continues!

Cornish Heritage Farms released a new set of sentiments this month: Mona Lisa Moments Vintage Christmas expressions. There is a wonderful variety of sentiments on this new set!

I used one of the sentiments stamped twice on this whimsical card. The scene was created with Kim Hughes Heart Warmers sets (I *heart* this set!!)

The set includes an ATC size journalling box, a set of script letters and several vintage inspired school themed images. On this card you can see the journalling box, letters and little girl image from the set.

Scrapblock release Friday!

Today at Cornish Heritage Farms a new Scrapblock called Newspaper Ads is being released.

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.

Will it be you? Week two challenge starts today!

The Summer Stamping Star challenge is in full swing over at Cornish Heritage Farms and WOW, everybody rocked the colouring challenge!

This week's challenge is one of my personal favourite techniques: paper piecing.

I thought I'd post a few of my favourite cards that I've made using this style as examples. One cool little tip I have to share which I have mentioned in the past is to use a white gel pen to colour the eyes when you are paper piecing. It saves a ton of time and looks pretty good when you're done (if I do say so myself).

This week's entries need to be uploaded to the CHF gallery under the week two challenge by next Monday!

I'll be back with some new projects shortly!

Just a reminder!

That challenge #1 (colouring) for the Stamping Star contest at CHF ends July 6th at 9 am. Be sure to upload your designs to the CHF gallery before the deadline!!

EIEIO, it's Kim Hughes release day on the farm

Kim Hughes' latest release (called On the Farm) is available today from Cornish Heritage Farms.

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.
