Cornish Heritage Farms Grand Opening Blog Hop!

Welcome!  I'm so excited to be part of the Cornish Heritage Farms Grand Re-Opening!   Today I'm playing with some of the fabulous new digital images available on the Cornish Heritage Farms online site.  For my Thanksgiving card, I've mixed it up a bit and printed a background image (Fall Harvest) onto some patterned paper, the sentiment onto cream cardstock, and the Boy with Pumpkin onto white cardstock.  I colored the boy with Copics, cut him out, and adhered him into the center of the background scene.  A bit of distressing, a felt leaf, and some pleated paper strips finish it off.


Next up, I decided to play with a few of the cute Pumpkin images - I think they're just perfect for place cards for the table.  I layered them with some felt leaves and a few coordinating buttons.  The whole little embellishment sits atop a place card made from corrugated cardboard.  Now, so that I don't have to do this all over again next year, I made sure to stick the names on with just a little temporary adhesive - that way I can change them out, depending on who's at the table next year. ;)


I love playing with this series of vintage palace images (you can see the first one - Palace #2 - in my previous blog post).  As before, I printed out Palace #1 on a subtly patterned Prima script paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I changed up the color scheme this time, but the idea is still the same, using Graphic 45 patterned papers, a rose diecut, and a tiny crown bottlecap.


Thanks for visiting and having a peek at some of the over 500 digital images now available on the Cornish Heritage Farms website.  And for those of you who love rubber (like me!), over the coming weeks there will also be a special rubber stamp section on the website, too - featuring some old favorites like The Rummage Bin, Thomas Kinkade, and the wonderful backgrounders!

So, want a chance to win a Cornish Heritage Farms gift certificate? Just visit each of our blog hop sites (see the list below). Leave a comment on each site before you hop to the next site.  Each DT member will randomly draw a name from the comments left in the first 24 hours of the hop.  That means you have 8 different chances of winning!

Good luck and Happy Hopping!

This is a great "digital" card. Thanks for showing us the possibilities. I haven't ventured into the digital stamps area yet but I'm thinking maybe you will convince me. This boy is so cute and I like the way you placed him on the scene. Love the checkered paper and your scrunched ribbon. Love those placecards - great ides to make them "changeable".

Lady Editor said...

Nicely done. Curious. What medium do you use for your coloring?

Lady Editor said...

Never mind...I found it. However, if you ask me, you did an awesome job with the coloring. It almost look as if you'd use another type of medium, especially when I look at your CHF village scene. Whahoo.
