CHF Challenge # 3--Pearls and Lace

It is time for the third Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge. The theme for this challenge is "Pearls and Lace" and our hostess is Cindy Haffner. Hope you will be able to play along. For all the details go to the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog.

Now I would like to share the cards I made for this challenge. My card uses the digital image from the Cornish Heritage Farms website called Lily Digital Stamp. It was printed, cut out using a Nestibilities Oval and sponged with Memento Black Ink before removing the image from the cutting die. I found the lace in my sewing cabinet, added some black ribbon over the top edge and finished it off the self-sticking pearls.

Of course, I had to make a second card using different colors. I recolored the image to match  the SU color Rose Red before printing it out. I then sponged SU Rose Red ink around the edges before removing it out of the die. The card stock (SU Rose Red) was dry embossed on about two-thirds of the front panel. Again I covered the top edge of the lace with ribbon and added self-sticking pearls. I hope you enjoy our third challenge.

Challenge # 2--Just for Baby

It's time for Challenge # 2 at Cornish Heritages Farms. Today's challenge is "Just For Baby" and our hostess is Barbara Bruder. For my card I used one of the digital images. Using my computer, I added the words to the balloons and the sentiment "welcome" at the bottom.  I used circle nestibilities to cut out the imagine. and I used the large dots background stamp inked with versa mark to create the background paper. To play along with the challenge visit the Cornish Heritage Farms blog for complete instructions and links to each of the design team's blog.

I could not stop with one card. I enlarged the image until I could use just the little bear's face. I cut it out with a circle die and created a baby's birthday card. The birthday sentiment was created on the computer. I find myself doing that a lot when I need a special size or something done a special way.

I hope you enjoy seeing all the projects that the design team has created. There are links to all the blogs on my left-hand side bar. Have a wonderful day.

God's Beauty

“God’s Beauty”, a retired Stampin’ Up set, is one of my favorites. I never tire of using it. The flowers and butterfly were colored with copics and then cut out. I have made several of these cards in the past few days for birthday cards for special friends.
