Sister Celebration by Julie Lavalette

Hi Cheery Lynn friends, it's JULIE here and today I am sharing a shabby chic style card using many of our beautiful floral and lace style dies.

My card measures 8x5 Inches and I started by adding a patterned layer of paper to my card which I added Frantage, distressed at the edges and added some ink. I also added a couple of corner accents and my double layered inked butterfly.

My next couple of layers were torn across the page and my small doily and leaves inserted behind. These layers were added with foam strips for extra dimension.

My main image was mounted onto my frame with foam strips. I added Frantage, my word Sister and a Flower into the girl's hair for extra detail.

My flourish was cut down and all the parts placed in at different angles. Adding my flowers and extra leaves finishing with accents of Pearls.

Birthday Wishes by Debbie Brownmiller

A warm hello to you today. It is Debbie hosting the blog today from Debbie's Time Out.  So nice to see you visiting.

There are so many beautiful papers out there that I have chosen to go with fewer dies this time and let the paper be some of the pretty design of the card along with the beautiful dies.

Here I used the French Flair Stitch and Cut Tool   to cut out this design and then cut the sentiment from the Birthday Wishes Circle to layer on top of it.

This is cut from the Ribbon Eyelet Border  die. It makes a nice base to thread ribbon through. I added some bling to it as well as bling to the sentiment. This is a nice simple and quick card to make and I think it is so pretty.

I invite you to come join our Bi Weekly challenge

Birthday Wishes and Soft Colored Dreams by Chrissy Mac

Greetings!  Chrissy Mac here with another custom card project using some awesome Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts.  One of my favorite cards to make are Birthday cards.  There is always a birthday to celebrate around the corner.  I'd like to say that I make all of my cards ahead of time so that I am ready to give that special someone a handmade card, but it just never seems to quite work out that way and so I end up making one that matches the gift wrap or gift bag on the present or that matches a theme I have decided upon.  This one was for a friend who wears a lot of spring colors and so this is very fitting to her personality and style.

I really like square formats and decided to make this card 6.5" x 6.5".  Besides the occasion or person providing my guiding inspiration, there is always an artistic element or sometimes a few of them that guide and inspire my creative process.  

For this word...DOILY!  Cheery Lynn has the most amazing assortment of doily style die templates and here I used the French Pastry Doily which is definitely one of my faves.  On the blue doily under the flowers I simply cut out the center and made a cut so that I could then fan fold it to give it some dimension and provide a nice background for the lovely dimensional Daisies made with the Cheery Lynn Designs Shasta Daisy die.

Have I told you how much I love paper flowers?  No?  Well then...I LOVE PAPER FLOWERS!  You just can't go wrong with handmade dimensional flowers.  Since I try to recycle or up-cycle on my crafty endeavors, for the center of the flowers I used some fake pearls from an old broken necklace.  Score!

Below is a list of the dies I used to build this project.  If you have any questions on how this was made, please leave me your questions.  Either way I would love to hear from you even if it is just to say hello.  Happy creating!

Spooky Dresser With Lisa Blastick

Today, Im sharing with you a super fast card for this Halloween season! 
I have seen some similar card on line and this card was made using all Cheery Lynn Designs 
 die cuts. 

I first card the base of the card which is 5 x 6 inches. Then I diet the 4th smallest "rectangle" twice and cut them in half. You should have 4 pieces, I used 3 of them. Next chalk the edges in white. Add a white dot or button for the drawer handles.

The "ghosts" are part of the "ultimate Halloween' die cut set. Lots of goodies in that pack! I diet the ghosts 3 times and place a piece of black cardstock behind the eyes with a pop dot. The "boo" sentiment was die cut in paper wand then I die cut it again in foam to pop it up with some red tickles for the blood drippings....EW!

Vintage Layout with Maggi, Sept guest designer

Hi there Cheery Lynn fans!  Maggi here today to share a layout I made for the September 15th Vintage challenge going on right now!  That photo is me and I suspect it was taken on the first day of the 2nd grade.  I used Graphic 45's ABC Primer papers to do my vintage look but as is typical of me, I had to add a bright splash of color with the red flowers.

I like to layer it up so I used the French Flair Pierce and Cut tool die to cut layers in different patterned papers.

I tend to mix and match my dies when I make flowers.  For the flower above I've used  Stacker Flower 5 on the bottom and the   Black Eyed Susan Strip 5 Piece Die Set for the top layers and center.  I really love that center piece!  The flowers below are made with the Black Eyed Susan Strip die.

I used Flourish #4  and  Flourish #7  to add to my floral clusters.  Flourish 4 is such a nice large flourish that I tore it apart and tucked in pieces here and there.

Cheery Lynn Designs used:
LPC12 - French Flair Pierce and Cut tool
CAFLRS4 - Flourish #4 
DAFLRS7 - Flourish #7
SF - 5 - Stacker Flower 5
B338 - Black Eyed Susan Strip 5 Piece Die Set
B777 - Floral Bouquet Kit 

Thanks for joining me today and thanks to Cheery Lynn for asking me to guest design this month!! Be sure to enter the Vintage challenge going on right now.  You could win a $20 gift certificate to the store!  You'll find all the details on the September 15 challenge post.

You Are Awesome Card by Amy Voorthuis

Hi lovelies, 
Summer is nearly at its end and I really don't like that at all....the only good part of Autumn is the pretty layouts, cards and other projects you can make with all the lovely leaf & Halloween dies Cheery Lynn Designs offers. But for today I am still in the Summer time mood.  This time I made my card all about less color.  I used only white, purple & cream/light brown and the "You Are Awesome"die which is my personal favorite....

You Are Awesome: 
 Purple is my favorite color to scrap so I made a lot of flowers in that color after cutting out all the flowers I wanted to use. This card consists of three layers with the FRM132 - French Lattice Small Frame being one of them. 

For the centers of my flowers I use all different kinds of things like pearls, bling, metal, stamen & beads...they give your flowers all a different look. The papers I used here are from the "Vintage Spring Basics"collection by Maja Design.  Oh I know, again that paper manufacturer...I will try and make something with other papers on my next post...

Puppy Birthday Card by Eva Dobilas

Hello there, this is Eva today and I have a super CUTE card if I may say so to share with you.  I have two Siberian Husky dogs, Roxy and Zeus.  Roxy is black and white and Zeus has tannish fur color, looks more like a wolf.  I love my dogs more than I can tell, so I thought I would create a cute card with our Funny Dog Die,

To create this card I cut a 5.5" square card base and added a patterned paper on the front.  Next I die cut a Square Stitch and Cut Tool out of water color card stock and added it on my card front.  Next I die cut two Funny Dog dies mirroring each other out of black and one out of kraft card stock. I backed them up with white water color card stock and started to paint them in and adhered them on my card front.  I also painted the background a little bit. Finally I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment on my card as this would make a super cute birthday card to someone.

Hope you like this happy little card and here are the dies I used to create it with:

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see your creations in our current challenge.
