Summer card with Maggi

I used some great dies from Cheery Lynn Designs to make this fun  summer card.  My favorite color is red and I love this Summertime collection from Maja Designs.  

 I love all the flower dies that Cheery Lynn carries but this one, Judy's Blooms, is a favorite.  I stacked 3 blooms and topped with a pearl to make these lovely flowers.  I used patterned and solid papers to cut the blooms, I think that makes an interesting looking bloom!

Be sure and join in our blog hop tomorrow, we'll be showing lots of summer themed projects.  It all starts on the Cheery Lynn blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

Window Shaker Card with Cheryl Walker

Hello everyone, today I have a card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs Dies  using the beautiful new  Shutter Window shaker die kit  from Cheery Lynn, along with the Tea Rose small die. Love these shaker dies from Cheery Lynn as they are super fun and easy to create. Also love how the kit has absolutely everything you need in it to create these fun shakers.

The flowers I chose to use are Cheery Lynn Tea Rose small die.  I cut them out using white card stock, then dusted them with 2 different pinks. Next I added some mini beads for the centers. The leaves were dusted using a green ink from club scrap.

The window was created using some old old Crafty Secrets design paper. Love the pattern for the window. The little flowers for the shaker part were airbrushed using a pink Copic marker.

The sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps called Spencer's Set. I stamped it in black, and then dusted the edges in the same pink as the flowers.

Ribbon is satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and thank you for stopping by!

Hugs to all,

Spring Birthday by Laurie Schmidt

Hi everyone!

 Laurie here from Stamping Up North sharing a Birthday card today. It seems I am always in need of Birthday cards, especially in the spring. Spring makes me think of flowers, so I decided to use the Floral Bouquet Kit for this card. 

I started out with Cheery Lynn's Lattice #2...such a pretty background pattern. I cut it out in black and backed it on some grey paper, adding some pink flowers from the Floral Bouquet die set. The centers have enamel dots, and the leaves are from flourish #13. I stamped a small sentiment on the bottom in black.

I am always amazed at the awesome detail in Cheery Lynn dies!

Here's a list of dies I used for this card:

Lattice #2 CAFR22

Flourish #13 CAFLRS13

All Occasion Dahlia Card

Hi there...Cherry here at the Cheery Lynn blog.  I have a simple little card to share.  Some times I like to leave a card without a sentiment so it can fit any occasion.
 I used the 3D dahlia flower stackable for my main focal point.  I added buttons to the top of them and used the Build a flower #1 Petals/leaves for my leaves.
 From here I added details from the curls and swirls embossing folder  at the bottom as a border.
That is it for me.....Thanks for visiting the Cheery Lynn blog! Cherry

For Someone Special by Jenny Alia

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.

Floral Birthday Card with Bonnie Garby

Hi there Cheery Lynn die lovers.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here today to share a pretty floral birthday card using one of my favorite flower die sets from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I have lots of layer on this card, but I think it's pretty easy to see from the photo how the layers were assembled.  I just love the Square Frames die for square cards.  

My blue/tan background paper was made using Distress Inks spritzed with water.  My flowers and foliage were created with the Floral Bouquet die set which is such a versatile flower set.  I used some of the same paper from my background for the blue flower petals along with some dark blue and kraft color cardstock.  The layers were also inked with an old script stamp for some additional interest.  The flowers and foliage were cut and then shaped with a stylus and foam pad.  The flowers were layered and finished off with some cool metal gear embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added a pretty butterfly to the right side of the card to balance things out.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My card was finished off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All Tool using Ivory and Capri Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I hope my card today inspires you to pull out some of your favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and create your own pretty floral card.  Happy crafting!

Love Bug by Julie Lavalette

Hi Cheery Lynn fans, its Julie here hosting the blog today and I have made a fun card that would suit a variety of themes from passing a driving test, a Birthday or just to send love.

I started by adding all my base layers to my card and made up some Sweet Christine Flowers by folding the petals in half and pressing the flower in the centre on my Embossing mat. I added four layers and a gem into the centres and glued in place over my lace diecut strip. I just adore these flowers, they are quick to make and very effective.

My word was drop shadowed and glued in place with Silicone Glue to add extra dimension.

I added an accent onto the corner with another flower and a couple of keys cut from Gold Mirri Board.

My Hippy Mobile I cut out in patterned paper and glued in place onto white card which was fussy cut around the die cut. I added Glossy Accents onto the lights and windows, I shaded the body of the car with a Copic Pen and paper pieced my wheels and the sun visor in a co-ordinating colour.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the lovely comments you leave, I appreciate them so much.

Happy Crafting, 
Julie x

Thanks for the Fabulous Time Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovelies. 
At the moment I am totally into making Autumn cards, I don't know why.  Maybe it's because of the pretty paper collections & dies I get to work with! 
For this card I used two new paper collections from 49 and Market named "Scents of Nature"and "Looking Through".  In the last one there are these lovely fairy & mushrooms pictures that you can cut out. That got me thinking I had those cute mushroom dies that I wanted to use for a long time and it totally was a wonderful fit for this card.  

Thanks for the Fabulous Time:  
Oh how I love that B296 - Tiny Bubbles Borders die it can be used for serveral occasions such as summer cards/layouts but also fall, spring and winter projects. This time I added some mixed media products like sprays by Lindy's Stamp Gang and that amazing "bubbles stamp" by 49 and Market {designed by Gabrielle Pollacco who was a guest designer here some time ago}.
The thanks stamp is by Joy design! The flower is made by two flowers that I have combined. I wetted the flowers and wrinkled them a little and then I dried them. Underneath the flower I added the gorgeous B179 - Iris Leaves & B206 - Mini Leaf Set that I got in my latest DT pack.

Cheery Lynn Design dies used:
XL-2 - Square Scalloped Stackers Nesting Dies
B296 - Tiny Bubbles Borders
B365 - Faerie Mushrooms
B259 - Daisy Strip
SF-2 - Stacker Flower #2
B179 - Iris Leaves
B206 - Mini Leaf Set

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day....
