Cheery Lynn Christmas Shaker

Hello!  It's Jenny here today sharing a Christmas shaker card. I had an idea that I wanted to use the Inverted Scallop Oval Stackers and this card developed from there.  

I started by cutting a Inverted Scallop Oval  into a white A2 top-fold card.  I then cut a piece of red card stock with a smaller oval from the Classic Silver Large Oval set so the red would show through behind the white.  I then glued a piece of Clear Acetate from the new kits and put foam tape behind it.  I trapped sparkly snowflakes in the oval window before sealing the back with tan patterned paper.

The white card front seemed too plain so I trimmed red patterned card stock to 1/4 inch smaller than the A2 card front and cut the center out with a large oval.  The card front is decorated with a tree from the Build a Christmas Tree set and presents from the Whimsical Christmas set.

Cheery Lynn For Someone Special

Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a card I created after being inspired by a piece of patterned paper.  I layered a piece of blue card stock behind the patterned paper and then glued them to an A2 card.  I created the central flower using the Black Eyed Susan Strip die.  The die comes with a center that you roll with a quilling tool or maybe around a stylus or toothpick.  The center of the flower adds interest and texture.  

The white flowers are from the Sweet Christine die and all of the foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit.  It's one of my new favorite foliage dies.  I really like the leaf shapes and the variety that is included.  It's perfect for any floral cluster.  Last I double layered the Whimsical For Someone Special sentiment.  I added the white card stock offset behind so the blue would stand out more.  The background paper was overpowering the words without the extra white behind.

Cheery Lynn Happy Cat-o-ween

Hi, it's Jenny here today with a Halloween card featuring one of the new Halloween dies from the new Fall and Winter release.  This cat is perfect for Halloween but would be really cute on an all occasion or birthday card too.  It has a little spider dangling from it's tail but it's so simple to snip that off.  

I used a die that normally makes  flower centers to create the black flowers.  They are from the Embellishment #1 die and I love how light and airy they are.  The yellow-green flowers are small Tea Roses that have been embellished with green glitter glue and the black centers are from the Embellishment #2 die set.  The white flowers are Dandelions, I added them in for a pop of color and I like the texture.  I used them instead of adding leaves.

I cut the doily once out of black card stock and then the center of the doily out of whit paper.  I cut it out with a Classic Circle die from the L4 set.

Dies R Us Leaves Challenge

Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog!  Life has gotten busy with school again and I need to focus more time on academics and my kiddies.  I've made the difficult decision to step down from my very first DT position at Dies R Us. I'm very sad to leave but today's post will be my last.  There is some amazingly wonderful talent and heart in the design team.  I will miss the challenge blog and will be visiting regularly.  I hope you will do as well.

Today's card was inspired by the new Dies R Us Leaves in the Trees Challenge that begins today.  For this card I used three Cheery Lynn dies.  

Dies R Us Dies
Cheery Lynn Winter Holiday Words
Cheery Lynn Classic Circles L4 

I cut a large circle and stamped it with a wood grain stamp.  The card is A2 sized.  The really cool thing about this card is the Blessings die.  It's part of the Cheery Lynn Designs Winter Holiday Words set and I don't have anything else like it in my die collection.  I love how it just almost embossed-cut out the word.  It's a very simple, graphic die.  Love it!

These leaves cut the same way, there are really interesting swirls cut into them.  They were cut out of white card stock and then colored with distress ink.

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.
