You Make the World a Better Place

Hi there everyone.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a pretty all-occasion card made with lots of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I created an open card front using the Quatrefoil A2 Frame.  I used the A2 Retangle Classic die to cut the large opening on the card front and also created a bit of a frame of the same size for the back.  I sandwiched the Quatrefoil cut in white in between the card front and the frame backing to hold it in place.

I created a rectangle for the sentiment panel using some Distress Ink paper I made measuring 2-3/4" x 4 which covers enough of the front to allow you to put a message on the inside of the card without it showing though.  The sentiment was added to that with a ribbon banner in between.

I lined the inside of the card with the same Distress Ink paper for uniformity when the card is closed.
My tea roses were made with a mix of the Distress Ink Paper and solid dark purple cardstock for some interest.  The layers were cut and the petals were shaped with a foam pad and stylus before assembling.  They were attached to the card below the sentiment.

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Regal Purple and Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope I've inspired you to pull out your frame stamps and make an open front card.

Be Happy by Julie Lavalette


Hi everyone, it's JULIE here and today I am sharing a card using the beautiful flower die called Black Eyed Susan. I love the dimension you can get with these flowers and they always look so pretty on a card.

My card has been made using Craft Consortium's paper pad called Wild Rose and measures approx 7.5 inches by 5 inches. 


I starting by cutting my layers and adding some stitching for a shabby feel and an extra touch of detail, mounting on my Concentric Circles Mesh.


My Stackers have both been placed on with foam strips adding them both on at different angles adding on my Be Happy sentiment.


My flowers I used a quilling tool to wind the centres and shaped them on my Embossing mat.

Smile Card by Amy Voorthuis

Hello lovely Cheery Lynn Fans.
Flowers, flowers, flowers, who doesn't love flowers? Well I am a huge sucker for flowers especially when they are made with Cheery Lynn dies. I so enjoy making them myself. For today's card I used two different collections by Maja Design and two amazing dies to make the flowers on my card.  
The color palette is like my latest layout I made for Maja Design that was posted on my blog yesterday if you click here => Amy's Pretty Papers <= you can see more of my work. 

Smile: 
The color palette I used is black and white plus one, but for this card I added two colors orange and green for the leaves because in my opinion leaves are supposed to be green. I cut my B312 - Burlap Border in uneven strips to make the card more shabby chic and placed them behind my flower like I did with the leaf dies. At the end I added a pretty dot stamp and some cut feathers.

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 weekend.

Just For You by Debbie Brownmiller

Hi, it's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out. Glad to see you here. Today I am sharing a card with flowers. To me flowers always make for a beautiful card to give to that someone special.
I started the base of this card by embossing it with the Hearts and Rose Leaves Embossing Plate .
It is always nice to have that extra texture on the base of your cards.
I then layered the Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily  to one side of the card and the Southern Charm Valance Die  at the top and bottom of the card.
The Mini Flourish One  was used as a background for the flowers and leaves.  The flowers are the Chrysanthemum Strip inked up with distress inks for color. The leaves were cut from the Build a Flower #2  and tucked in behind the flowers. A pearl was placed in the center of each flower to finish them off .
I cut the sentiment "Just For You" from the Just For You Oval Die  . I then traced the outer edge of the die onto the purple paper and fussy cut it out to place behind the sentiment. The XOXOXO were placed along the bottom of the sentiment.

I would like to thank you for visiting the blog today and for the comments you leave. I hope I have inspired you to play with some of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers. They have a huge variety of flower dies to choose from.

Birthday Cupcake With Lisa Blastick


Hi everyone! Ready for a new quick, clean and simple card? It is easy to do with Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts. Here is an A2 size card using only 2 die cuts and an embossing folder. 
Plus I lost a bit of my Mojo? Anyone seen it? 


I die cut out the cupcake out twice. Once in brown and once in the pink. There are 3 scalloped frames and along the edges of the pink I added liquid pearls. The 2 cherries have some diamond glaze and I placed pop dos behind the cherries and cupcake wrapper. 


On the inside scalloped white paper I embossed it with old parchment. 
Just to give it a little extra something... 



Thanks for stopping by....Hope you enjoyed.
Have a great day! 
Hugs Lisa

New Window Shaker Card Kit!

Cheery Lynn Designs has 2 new shaker card kits!  This window shaker that you see here (I think this is so fabulous) and a flower shaker that I'll share with you later on.  The shaker card kits come with 2 dies, foam, acetate and shaker pieces.  Everything you need except your design paper!
I do have a word of advice for you and that is to use a glue that is not so sticky and dries hard and quickly.  I used a sticky glue on this and some of my shakers stuck to the sides even though I allowed what I thought was an adequate drying time.

Underneath the window shaker I have layered Royal Scandinavian Boutique Stacker and 3 different sizes of the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped  frames.

The sentiment is stamped onto the small Pierced Stacker 3  frame.
The flowers are from the Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Set and the leaves are Flourish Leaf Strip 5 Piece Die Set.  I also used the Ivy Corner Flourish Die under the flowers.

Wedding Shaker Card with Cheryl Walker

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all!

Today's card features the beautiful Wedding Cake Shaker Kit and several other beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Design! I LOVE using the shaker kits from Cheery Lynn as they have everything you need to create a shaker for your card, and they are super easy to make!

So for my card I chose to use some beautiful shimmer butterfly design paper for my wedding cake. I LOVE the way it looks paired with the DCWV design paper. I did cut a different print for the backing on the wedding cake. I added tons of the little bride and groom metal pieces to the shaker part of this card :)

I then cut out a Priscilla Doily in black card stock, so the shaker would show up well, and behind it I used the beautiful Royal Scandinavian Doily die, cut in the same shimmer design paper.

The flowers are cut using Cheery Lynn's Medium Rose die, cut in coordinating card stock. I then distressed the edges of the petals using black ink. For the Greenery I used Cheery Lynn Step Card Bundle for the greenery pieces in it. I chose the 2 smaller greenery.

For the corners of my card I used the  BD-17 Corners set. and cut the one corner out in black four times.

Lastly I added some sewing in black, and white satin ribbon for my bow.


I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!

hugs to all,
Cheryl

Seahorse Card Set with Laurie Schmidt


Hi everyone!
Laurie here today sharing a card I made with some fun Cheery Lynn ocean dies.
I love the cute seahorse family...for this set of cards I used 2 of them.

 I cut them out of some alcohol ink background papers I made some time ago. It's a fun technique, you can find the link on how to do it here

You can see the awesome detail on the seahorse and starfish...I did distress the edges of the starfish and shell a bit. I also added a few sequins for a bit of bling.
For the top card I backed it all on some scallop rectangles, and the bottom I kept very clean and simple:

Blessings by Jenny Alia


Hi, it's Jenny here 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.

 Thanks for visiting today and for those who celebrate Happy Easter!
