CHF April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cornish Heritage Farms blog hop! Come join us as the Cornish Heritage Farms Design Team takes you on a journey discovering all sorts of CHF goodness! If you didn’t start at the beginning of this hop, you might want to head on over to the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog so that you don’t miss out on anything.

This month we have 17 backgrounders, 3 ATC Sets, 2 individual Rummage Bin Stamps and 3 Rummage Bin Stamp sets being released. These are real red rubber stamps - just the first release of many! :-)

"First 24 Special" - receive 15% off all orders that are placed within the first 24 hours of the release.

Be sure to leave a comment on everyone’s blog as you travel from blog to blog for your chance to win some Cornish Heritage Farms blog candy. Three of our CHF Design Team members will be giving away blog candy, but who they are is a secret! They will be giving away one new CHF stamp to a random person who leaves a comment on their blog! You have 24 hours to leave your comments on each blog to be eligible for the prizes.

I've got two cards to share with you today. My first card has the wonderful new Denim Backgrounder stamped in blue. I then pulled out an elegant flourish from the gorgeous new Beautiful set and stamped it with dark brown ink directly on the Denim background. The sentiment is from the new Ornamental Beauty set. I used a Watercolor Distress technique (from Technique Junkies) on some white cardstock and die cut the flowers. Some baker's twine is threaded through a dark brown button and adhered to the center of the flowers.


For my second card, I've pulled out my favorite Gingham Backgrounder and stamped it in a bright sunny yellow. The flowers and the sentiment are digital stamps that are available in the CHF store. I printed out the Floral 11 and the Be Happy digital stamps and colored them with Copic markers. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the bee's wings and to the yellow centers of the purple flowers. Some purple satin ribbon balances out this happy, sunny card.


All of the stamps that I've noted in bold are new rubber stamps, and they are available in the CHF store right now. Once you've finished going through the blog hop and left your comments, head on over to the store to go shopping and take advantage of the 15% off special!

Please hop on over to Jacqueline Smith's blog to see what beautiful creations she has for you now. Thank you for joining us in our first CHF blog hop!!
