Kinkade Extravaganza!

It is release day for this Hometown Pride image at Cornish Heritage Farms! I am excited to be a part of this team and this is the first TK release that I have been involved with. I hope to show you some fun ways to use these beautiful stamps! First off, coloring. This card was colored using my copic markers. The full tutorial is now up in the technique forums of CHF. You can find this tutorial HERE. I love to color these images with the markers.

Here is a close shot of the image itself. I love to see flags waving off of people's homes. Looks like a lovely street to live on.
Here are this cards deets:
Hometown Pride (Thomas Kinkade) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Land of the Free (Thomas Kinkade) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso, Hazelnut (Adirondack)
Simply Smooth White, Suede Brown Dark and Medium (Prism)
Copic Markers
White gel pen (Inkssentials)
Metal corner (We R Memory Keepers)
Corner Rounder (Marvy)
Paper Piercer

Now, onto some projects! The focal point of this image has to be that flag. There are so many military wives and supporters that I thought a lovely brooch would look great with this image. I also captured in this photo the red rubber side of the vingette stamp. I love how detailed this stamp is and how deeply etched and yummy the rubber is. We do get a little giddy about our rubber, don't! Here are the deets on this project:
Hometown Pride (Thomas Kinkade) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Chocolate (Memento)
Simply Smooth White (Prism)
Memories glass 1.5" square (Ranger)
Memories frame (Ranger)
Copic Markers
Glossy Accents (Ranger)
Red velvet ribbon
Blue stitched ribbon

Last, but not least, you knew I had to incorporate a fabric project of some sort! How about a tote for the parade! I know as a mom I am always bringing things like sunscreen, snacks, water bottles etc to a parade. I wanted to see how a finely detailed stamp would work on fabric. This is not an iron-on, it is direct to fabric stamping. Make sure you have a high thread count fabric and ink up your stamp really well and press hard....I was so pleased with the results!
Here are the deets on this project:

All of these TK cards and bag are wonderful Sherrie! I love the first one, I noticed it says from Home Town Pride collection. My BF lives in Placerville, CA and TK is from there. The town has lots of history and there is a Victorian feel still left among some of the town and homes. Great representation! Take care, Deb
