Grand Opening - Cornish Heritage Farms

Welcome to the Grand Opening Blog Hop for Cornish Heritage Farms! If you've come here from Frances' blog, you're on the right track. If not, please start at the beginning by going to the CHF Blog - you don't want to miss anything today. :-)

I've had fun playing with some of the winter digis available at Cornish Heritage Farms. On this first card, I shrunk the snowman down to about an inch, printed it, colored it, and punched it out with a circle punch. I wanted it to be small enough to add on top of the rosette. The rosette is adhered to a large snowflake that has been covered with Martha Stewart glitter.


I used the same sentiment from CHF on both cards, but I printed them out in different sizes. That's a great little feature of digital images and sentiments. On this second card, I colored this snow-covered mailbox with Copic markers, and then I covered all the snowy areas with Martha Stewart glitter.


Now for the big news! We will be randomly giving away 8 gift certificates to shop in the new CHF store!

Here is how to enter:

Visit each of our blog hop sites, beginning with the Cornish Heritage Farms blog. Leave a comment on each site before you hop to the next blog. Each DT alumni 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!

Thank you for visiting with me today. Ready to see some more eye candy? Hop on over to Lisa's blog to see what she created for you today. Good luck in the random drawing! :-)

StampOwl said...

hehe GMTA ... looks like we both used 2 of the same images, but of course they look completely different. Love how you used a smaller snowman for the first card. The fun thing about digis :)

Kristen said...

Love the CHF images - I'm thinking I'm going to have to start collecting digital images! Such great inspiration.

postalorphan said...

Wasn't too sure about the whole "digi" thing, but I love what you've done with the snowman! He's too cute done all tiny like that. I'm hopping off to the next DT - thanks for sharing!

Two great cards! I have never used digital stamps so have always wondered about changing the size of the image.

Gayle said...

Great cards, Holly. Lots of inspiring ideas.

Blondie said...

The mailbox card is my favorite. I like the copic colors you used and thanks for the ideas of enlarging and shrinking images.

Kelley said...

I love the paper on your mailbox card! Of course, they are my favorite colors. :)

I love digis because you can shrink them down to an inch in height. I love what you did with him on the rosette.

Linda Beeson said...

Oh how sweet is that snowman on this beautiful medallion you've created. I love how you did the snow on the mailbox card. All the glitter on both these cards adds so much beauty and dimension.

Melissa E said...

Cute mailbox stamp. I love the way you made it sparkle!

Miz Holly, you never cease to make me smile with all your creativity!! I do love that snowman - I made some cards for a swap using the rosette thingy ... and that mailbox is great and, well, I gotta have it!! Hugs to you, sweetie

Nancy M said...

Ooo, I really like the rosette on the first one and the vintage look of the second; TFS!!

Pat Moore said...

I love rubber, but digis are fast becoming what I love to use. Great hopping with you.

Chris said...

I am new at digital stamping and as I can see on your snowman card there is the advantage of making your images any size you want for your image to fit on your card idea. Love your rosette snowman, soooo... Cute!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Beautiful cards! And so nice to see CHF back in business!!

Nurse Kat said...

I love the rosette on your card. I'm also a great believer that you can never have to much bling- love the glitter! :)
The sizing options with digi images is a perk that may get me to fully convert from rubber stamps.

trisha too said...

Holly, these are SO cute--does the snowflake detach from the card to be an ornament?

Because I want it to . . . :)

Love the shine--I can imagine how glittery they are in real life!
