Cheery Lynn Summer Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to my stop on the Cheery Lynn Summer Blog Hop! I am excited to show you some of Cheery Lynn's fun Summer dies!   If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track.  If not, you can return to Cheery Lynn's blog HERE and start from the beginning.  Make sure to answer the questions on the Cheery Lynn Blog for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. 
For the base of this card I used a 5.5" square card.  I then cut two pieces of blue card stock at smaller 1/4"  intervals.  The center circles were cut from two Classic Circle Sets.  I glued the blue frame together and then worked to design the inside beach scene behind.  I ripped kraft paper and glued it to the back of the blue circle and then added wave border die cuts behind. 

Foam adhesive was used to adhere the blue mat and then I glued in the umbrella.  I find it easier to add another color behind detailed die cuts instead of double cutting and paper piecing. I did this with the umbrella, beach ball and drink dies.   The chair was double cut and layered offset to add more red into the scene.  When creating my cards I often try to add colors or elements in threes to balance the design. 


My favorite part of this card was the drink die.  It comes with all these tiny detailed elements like ice cubes, the cherry, drink umbrella and lemon wedges.  It was so much fun to put together and I can't wait to use it on another card.

Cheery Lynn Someone Special


Hi crafty peeps!  I recently bought a few sheets of glitter paper and wanted to try cutting flowers.  I used my new Big Sister machine and despite the thickness of the glitter paper the flowers and sentiment cut beautifully.


I used a few of my newer dies on this card.  I just love the pierced detail on these Mehndi Botanicals, they are so fun!  I cut the flower three times and layered it before adding the rhinestone center.  I also double layered the For Someone Special die to add more contrast so it would stand out against the Chevron background.  The Chevron frame was cut out of black paper and adhered to a white background.  I added pink behind it and then glued it to the front of a white card.

Cheery Lynn Hello


Hello! Today I created a card around this beautifully detailed Cheery Lynn 3D Peacock die cut.  My four year old and I had a lot of fun playing with my spritz bottles.  It's difficult to see but the entire peacock shimmers.  We made a number of marbled looking papers with my sprays and I cut the peacock after one dried.  


The card base was covered with a black card front, layered with teal, then white and then I cut a blue mat out of the Pierced Stacker #3 die.  I added the hello from the Bohemian Word Set in black for some added contrast.  I just love the big sentiment and the script font.  I find I use it on both formal cards as well as more clean and simple designs.  


Before gluing the peacock to the card front I added a green rhinestone for his eye and pushed out his feathers from behind with a stylus tool.  I wanted to show off all the beautiful dimension and detail this die has built into it.

Cheery Lynn Thank You


Hi!  Today I decided to challenge myself by creating a card using mostly scraps.  I found the pink and gray papers in my scrap bin along with these flowers and once my colors were set, the card came together.


I trimmed the pink papers and backed them with a black mat before adhering it to a 5.5" card.  The gray circle was a scrap from a Halloween card I made and was already cut using a Cheery Lynn Classic Circle die.  I popped it up with double sided foam tape.  The pin flowers were created using probably my favorite flower dies, the small and large Gardenia's.  The larger one has a fine shimmer from a glitter spray.  The edge of the yellow Tea Rose was dipped in a dark pink ink pad.  
  
To complete and complement the flowers I added white branches and black flourishes.

Cheery Lynn Blessings


Hi, I'm back today with a new card using some of my favorite colors.  The peach color is a little more pink in real life.  I was short on time but a beautiful background die and a good color combination can turn a simple card into a stunning one.


I started with a slightly larger than A2 pink card base and then layered the Lattice #1 die over a piece of aqua card stock.  I then cut the Cherry Blossoms Branch twice.  I was planning on cutting pink flowers to layer on top of the white stems but I decided to double layer them instead, offsetting them.  I thought the card needed more of the pink for balance.


Last I added the Blessings sentiment on the Horizon Fishtail Banner die which was popped up with foam adhesive.

Cheery Lynn Dream




Hello, today I'm sharing a window card.  I was planning a shaker card but with everything going on inside the window I decided to keep it simpler.  It does have a raised plastic window though.
 I cut a circle in the piece of designer paper and sandwiched the plastic between that circle and a piece of thin chipboard in which I cut a smaller circle.  I also cut the Dream word out of the same chipboard before painting it with some new sparks paint.  The mushrooms were backed with white paper and I cut the read tops and mounted them on mushrooms cut out of white.  I added all my elements and adhered the layers together with a strong double sided tape.

I hope you like the result.  Thanks for dropping by the blog today.

Cheery Lynn Imagine


Hi, it's Jenny here on the blog today.  I've been in a vintage mood lately and this is what I came up with.  I just love the detail on the Chasing Rainbows Doily.  It cut out beautifully for me too.  I love how Cheery Lynn die cuts fall out of the dies so easily.


 I used the second largest die in the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped Die Set  to cut the patterned paper.  I mounted it on kraft paper cut slightly smaller than the A2 card.  The kraft card stock was distressed with ink and the edges were roughed up too.  I glued the Chasing Rainbows Doily and then popped up the old car with foam adhesive after backing it with yellow patterned paper.

The wheel spokes are brown sequins with black rhinestone centers.
