Cheery Lynn August Blog Hop - Flower Power!


Hi crafty peeps!  Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs August Flower Power Blog Hop featuring my personal favs - flower dies! 




I am so excited to show you some of Cheery Lynn's amazingly beautiful and versatile Flower Dies.  Check out my teammates blogs along the hop so you can see more flowers 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. 



Flowers are so fun to play with!  This summer I challenged myself to use all the Cheery Lynn flower dies to create different bloom effects by folding and scrunching petals various ways.  For instance I found that the Daisy Strip (which has become one of my favs) can look like three completely different flowers by folding petals up, down or leaving them to lie flat.  I used some of the flowers to create this name frame for my new niece.  All the flowers were cut with white paper and colored with distress ink.  Using inks gives the flowers a realistic look.  It's also easy to layer, blend or add color until you achieve your desired effect.  For shimmer, glimmer mist was sprayed on some flowers and glitter glue was added to a few leaves.  



I used dotted paper for the background cut to the size of the frame.  Then I cut  Fanciful Flourishes and glued them around letters from my stash.  I played with flower placement until there was enough visual balance between style and color.  For the leaves I used three different dies:  Flourish Leaf StripFanciful Flourish, and Flourish #13.  The peach flower is the Gardenia Strip die, the dark pink is the Tea Rose Medium, the white flowers are the Chrysanthemum Strip, the yellow are the Shasta Daisy Strip and the 3D Daisy and the largest pink flower is the Stacker Flower #5.  The center of the Stacker Flower was made using the Embellishments #3 set.

Your name frame for your niece is stunning. I especially like the Stacker Flower #5. It is my favorite and it looks so real. The dotted swiss background paper is just subtle enough to carry the entire project. Excellent choice for this hop.
