Thank You!


Hi crafty friends!  I have another quick card to show you today.  I made this using flowers I'd pre-made during free time this summer.  I started with a white card base, then layered pink card stock under the black that was cut using  the Lattice Circle Frame.  


I cut a two circles from the Classic Circle Stackers L4 set and then glued the Thank You Sentiment Circle on top.  The flowers were created using Judys Blooms and the centers are from the Embellishment #2 Set.  The small white accent flowers are the Dandelion die.  I used this die very often, it's such a great accent when you want a little texture or color but it's more delicate than leaves.

Cheery Lynn Boo!


 Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing another Halloween card.  I just can't get enough of these new Halloween dies.  I began this card by cutting the centers out of black and patterned papers as well as the main 5.5" card front.  I glued a piece of orange paper to the inside front of the card.  I was originally planning on suspending the spiders between the layers for a 3D effect with an open front but my planned changed when I decided to use a greater variety of these fun spiders.


The spiderweb is from the Spider Net set, the three spiders are from the Whimsical Spiders set, and the Boo is from the Ultimate Halloween set.  I double layered Boo! to add a little more orange and it offsets the other spiderweb on the left nicely.

Cheery Lynn September Blog Hop!


Hi crafty peeps!  Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs September Gift Card Blog Hop!   I am so excited to show you some of Cheery Lynn's amazingly beautiful and versatile new Gift Cards.  Check out my teammates blogs along the hop so you can see more in action!  If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track.  If not, you can head back to the main blog HERE to start from the beginning.  Make sure to stop back at the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and comment there for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. 


I made this little gift card using the new Decorative Window Gift Envelope.  I decorated both the envelope and the card.  This die set comes with the main die to create a little envelope, a square to cut a little insert card, plus a number of other little accent dies like the adorable birds in this card and the flower.  There are even a few more dies included that I didn't use.  


This was so fun to make and I hope this has inspired you to give it a try.  These cards are perfect to put on a larger card (as Eva did), add to a small gift or use in a gift bag.  The Happy sentiment came from the Winter Holiday Word Set.


I embellished the back of the little card inside with the Thinking of You Square die.  It fit perfectly! Below is the card front with the little blue flower in the corner.  It's a single panel that I cut using the square die from the set.  It would be simple to cut a folded card though like some of my teammates did.

Cheery Lynn Spooky Ghosts


Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a Halloween card inspired by some ornaments I saw in a craft store.  I thought Cheery Lynn's doilies made a perfect background.  I'll probably make more to hang on my mantel or from my chandelier but this one I thought I'd add to a card. 

I created the background by taking an A2 sized top fold card base and adding black card stock and then a layer of green polka dot card stock on top.  The Cheery Lynn Dot background that I used in my New Year's card HERE would achieve a similar look.  I ran a strip of purple dotted paper a third of the way down for a little added interest before gluing the doily.  

The edges of the black Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily sparkle with black glitter glue as do the edges of the ghosts' wings from the Ultimate Halloween Set.  The oval popped up with foam adhesive was cut using the smallest oval from the Classic Oval Stackers set.  I cut the heads of the ghosts twice so I could put in black faces.

Dies R Us Gone Fishin'


Good morning!  Today I'm back with a card featured on the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  The new Summer Vacation challenge begins today.  I don't do a lot of fishing but my husband and sons go when they can so fishing makes me think of summer.  

For this card I used three Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  I colored them all with distress ink and actually cut the tip off the fishing pole because it's so long.  This is a 5.5" card, this die would be perfect on a scrapbook page but I'm a card maker and I love the detail on the fish that come with it.

Halloween Owl


Good morning!  Today I'm posting the first owl card I made.  It's similar to the previous post but I switched up a couple of the dies I used and the colors are very different.  The stamp is from IndigoBlu.  I stamped it in black on white card stock and then colored the background with a blending tool and distress ink.  I mounted the imae on black cardstock and distressed the edges of the frame.  


The dies used are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used the Spider Net in the corner, the Witch Hat, the Key from the Lock and Keys set and the Pierced Banner,

Happy New Year!


Hello!  I created this New Year's card using only three Cheery Lynn dies.  The new Happy New Year die makes such a graphic, bold statement on projects that I didn't need to add a lot to this card.  I began by cutting the Happy New Year die in a silver metallic paper and then again in black.  I offset the two die cuts and glued them together, sandwiching a little bit of blue card stock under the hats.  


Then I created the background by taking an A2 sized top fold card and adding a layer of black, then a layer of blue and then a white layer cut with the Lattice Circle Frame background die.  After the layers were assembled I played around with the Pierced Star dies, cutting the centers out using smaller star dies from the set. I added two rhinestones last after popping the sentiment up with foam adhesive for dimension.
