Cheery Lynn's Cozy Kitchen set with Laurie Schmidt

12:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi everyone, Laurie here from Stamping Up North. Today I'm sharing a card I made with Cheery Lynn's awesome new retro release. I chose to use the Cozy Kitchen Dies set.... I can't decide which I like best, the apron, the mixer or the stove!

Cheery Lynn Designs - Cozy Kitchen Die Set - 13 Die Set - B941

I guess one reason why I like this set is because I love to bake, and besides stamping, it's how I spend a lot of my free time. Today I'm sharing a card, but I'm thinking I will be making some recipe cards and tags along with this set soon, too!

I went with pink and black for a retro look. I pieced the stove together and adhered it onto a Cheery Lynn stitched square, right next to the sentiment. Then I tucked a Mandy Doily behind it, and an apron along side. I used a couple of flowers from the Mandy Doily die for embellishments too.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Classic Car Card with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello Crafty Friends and happy Thursday to you all! Today's super sweet card was designed for Cheery Lynn Designs using their new release called " Let's Go RETRO".  LOVE this release, it's absolutely darling!  For my card today I chose to use the Classic Car die, and I love how it turned out, as it's so cute! All the dies in this release are so cute, if you haven't seen the dies in the release you will want to go check them out!

Classic Car die- was cut using a shimmery white card stock, and then dusted with a pink distress ink. Next I colored in the grey with a Copic marker, and then the darker pink for the lights. The steering wheel and mirror were colored with a black Copic marker and so were the tires.

Flourish & Tiny flower kit- I had a white flourish already cut and ready for me to color.  Then I cut out the pink flowers in the same white shimmer card stock and dusted them to match. For the centers I used the Viva Pearl pen.

Paris Sign- Cut in a grey card stock.  The Cool Cat was cut in white and dusted lightly in pink.

The design paper came from the paper stack called Forever & Always stack. I used it to create my 3 layers and the grey card stock in Bazzill shimmer card stock, it's absolutely beautiful in person, photos don't show it as well. Each layer has sewing in pink. I should have added some gems to the headlights but forgot, and had my photos all ready to go. Next time I will have to add some :)

Happy Camper by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Hi again!  I've been crafting up a storm with the new Cheery Lynn Retro Release dies. I have a girl scout, cub scout and boy scout in my house as well as another future cub. I envision  this Happy Camper die set getting a ton of use.  The lines on the camper make it easy to cut and paper piece so you can customize the color.  I also backed it with a silver metallic paper that shows through the windows.  The tire was colored with a black marker.

Thinking of You by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Cheery Lynn fans, it’s JULIE here today and I am sharing some inspiration on a card that could be used for many occasions just by changing the sentiment.

My card measures approximately 6 x 4 inches and the paper pad  I have used is from Craft Consortium called Wild Rose. I started by adding my base layer onto my card and cutting my Doily in half from white cardstock.

My Tea Roses were also cut from the same patterned paper, shaping on my Embossing mat and adding a Gem into the centres. I bunched them together onto my card with a leaf flourish and my stamped sentiment.

Just for You Note Card by Bonnie Garby

3:30 AM 0 Comments
Hi Cheery Lynn die lovers!  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a pretty floral note card featuring some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I created by background by cutting the lattice die out of blue cardstock and layering it on a cream cardstock background.  I then ran a piece of brown ribbon across the center of the card, added the base of the sentiment frame, layered the tan swiss dots ribbon on that and then added the sentiment panel.

Next I pulled out my very favorite flower die set - the Floral Bouquet Kit, and cut the flower and foliage pieces.  I shaped them using a foam pad and stylus, assembled and added white half pearls for the centers.  I then arranged the floral cluster below the sentiment.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
FR16 Lattice

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Your Wedding Day

3:30 AM 1 Comments
A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out hosting the blog today. 

For the base of this wedding card I have used the Window  and layered a pattern paper that reminds me of wallpaper behind it. To the top and bottom corner I layered the Victorian Romance Flourish which is so elegant. The bride and groom are from the Wedding Vows set. 

I created some larger flowers using the Daisy Strip and smaller flowers using the Tiny Flower Kit. The leaves were from the Tea Rose small set. The flowers and leaves were inked with distress inks. Pearls were added to the flowers and flourish on the corner.

Inside I used the Pop Up Birthday Cake  after cutting the candles off of it. I layered the Border Carnivale  along the top of the cake to cover were the candles were. This birthday cake makes a great wedding cake too.
I then cut and glued down the Alpine Flourish Doily and stamped the sentiment on it. 

It is always nice to make that special homemade card for a wedding.  So I hope I have inspired you into making a special wedding card. 

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today and for the comments you leave. 
Have a crafty day my friends.

Happy Shower with Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi, Welcome back for another new card for Cheery Lynn Designs. I originally was thinking about April showers and then I started to think about all the baby showers that are this month. So I combined the two into one card. I wanted to make it baby blues but with some girly accents. 

I colored the rain drops and then added a glitter pen for extra shine. I also did that on the flourishes too. In the centers of the flowers is teal gala glitz. Be sure to get this adorable umbrella for your collection because it is on clearance.

Have a great day!

Feline Good Card with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 0 Comments
 Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Tuesday to you all! Today I have this super darling card made with Cheery Lynn's DARLING dies, I just LOVE this Small Cat die, and the Mirror Mirror Doily frame I used for my sentiment. Well I love it all....hehehee.  I always love using fancy frames, and this Cheery Lynn die is perfect!

To start with I cut my Small Cat out using the coordinating Graphic45 design paper, how perfect this kitty is, she goes perfectly with the design paper. I did add some distressing, Viva Pearl pen for an eye, nose, and on the ears and tail. Next I distressed her using red ink.

Flowers on cat- I used the Tiny Flower Kit Die, and cut out some flowers to go along with my kitty. The greenery is the Flourish #8 Die, and I just cut a piece of it, and colored it green. All pieces were glued using the Best Glue Ever found at Cheery Lynn Designs, LOVE this glue, it's honestly a must have to any crafters collection!

Frame- I have to say this is one of my NEW favorites, not that its newly released, but new to my collection...hehehe.  It's perfect for layering, I will get a lot of use out of this one for sure. I used it to cut out a brown doily frame, it's dark brown.  Then I used the other 2 dies to cut coordinating design paper for my sentiment frame. All 3 pieces come in this die set, love that too! Stamp is from The Project Bin.

Heart-Sweetheart candy die was used for this. Cut in coordinating design paper. This die is perfect to use all year round.

Butterfly In- used for the corner, it's so pretty and comes out of the die so smoothly. Love that about Cheery Lynn's dies, they come out so easy, no poking and trying to get the delicate pieces out.

I did add some sewing in a coordinating color to each layer. and lastly I added a bow was made with Really Reasonable Ribbon Satin, for my embellishing on my card :)

B205 Butterfly In
B675 Sweetheart Candy

Graduation Card with Laurie Schmidt

12:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Cheery Lynn fans! 
Laurie here from Stamping Up North sharing a graduation card today. 
It's spring,and while it may not FEEL like spring up north with all the cold temps lately, it IS spring....LOL....and that means time for graduations. I'm trying to get ahead of the game and making several of this card in various school colors. Today's card is in red and yellow.
I used Cheery Lynn's Graduation set which has 2 pieces...the hat and the diploma. I love the detail on these, especially the tassel. So fun! I cut them out in black and white, and adhered them onto a Cheery Lynn stitched rectangle around the sentiment.
Then I cut out Cheery Lynn's Pop Up Celebrate Word in yellow and black. I adhered that along side the rectangle, then backed it all on a red stitched rectangle. Three enamel dots finished the card!

Here's a list of the dies I used:

You Are Awesome by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi friends!  It's Jenny here today on the blog.  I have a clean and simple style card to share.  I didn't anticipate this card to be so simple but with the bold, graphic style of these dies and the bright colors I chose it didn't need much else.  

 I glued navy blue paper to the back of the leaves so the detail would really stand out.  The main flower was popped up with foam adhesive for dimension. The sentiment was cut twice and glued together offset so the shadow would stand out.  A third shadow in pink might have helped visually anchor the sentiment even more.

Hi Cheery Lynn fans.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a pretty floral birthday card featuring some lovely dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Today I'm using the pretty Bohemian Mehndi Botanicals 3 die layered on the Mandela Doily 2.  I went to my Distress Ink scrap paper stash and pulled out a couple colors to work with.  I cut the layers and shaped them a bit and finished off the center of the flower with a chevron cabachon layered over a metal gear.

Hello Friend by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 1 Comments

Hi Cheery Lynn fans, it’s Julie here today and I am sharing some inspiration on my friendship card using the super vintage Rotary Phone Die. 

Using Maja Design papers I started by tattering my base layers and adding on Hello Friend.

My Rotary Phone was cut out in Black cardstock and Gold Glitter card, paper piecing my sections together and adding a large gem into the centre of the dial. I glued in place with some Silicone Glue onto my tattered layer and Doily.

My flowers were all inked in the centres with Archival ink adding Stamens into the centres, placing the arrangement onto my card.

Floral Arrangement

3:30 AM 1 Comments
A warm Hello to you.  It's Debbie hosting the blog today from Debbie's Time Out . Today I am going to share a card with you using some beautiful flowers and greenery from Cheery Lynn Designs..

For the base I matted a purple patterned paper with black cardstock. I cut one of the Nautical Wheeler Doily. The doily cuts out in two pieces. So I layered the large one onto the base first and then tucked the smaller one in behind on the top corner. This gave me a pretty base to layer my flowers and greenery onto.

I cut and layered some greenery onto the doily from the Fern Leaf,  Branch 2  and Olive Branches sets. The big center flower was created using the Daisy Strip . The smaller flowers were cut from the Tea Rose small and the Tea Rose Medium. All flowers were colored and then sprayed with water and shaped with a stylus. Some pearls and prills were added to the center of the flowers.

On the inside of the card  I used the Pop Up Best Wishes. These pop up cards are fun and easy to make. 

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today. I hope you find some time today to craft, create and relax. Have a crafty day my friends.

Hello with Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello! Springtime is in the air! So I thought I would make a springtime card scene using lots of Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts. This card is 4.25 x 6 inches. I typically make 5 x 6, but with the stitched rectangle frame I made it a bit smaller. 

A couple of clouds, a whimsical tree, fence, a cat, grass 2, a butterfly, and tiny flowers it really came together quite quickly. 

I added tiny pearls to the centers of all the flowers. 

The sentiment was stamped in brown ink and fussy cut out. Tip:( I cut out the tree in green and colored the tree and branches in brown ink. I also cut out the cat in green and colored it brown to match the tree) :)

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!

Celebrate Easter with Cheryl Walker

1:00 AM 1 Comments
Hello Crafty Friends, Cheryl here with a sweet Pop Up Easter Card designed for Cheery Lynn Designs using some super darling dies they carry. LOVE the sweet bunny and chicks together, aren't they just darling???!!!! I think I used 9 Cheery Lynn Dies on this one...hehehe I really had a lot of fun designing this card to share with you all!

On my card I started with cutting the sweet bunny out using design papers for her. Next I did distress her and her dress.  She is so cute, love her! I will use her on other cards, not just for Easter. She does have one of the Tiny Flowers made from the tiny flower die. The chicks were cut using white card stock and then colored in with 2 yellow Copic markers. I can totally see them cut in a yellow batik or some kinda 2 tone yellow print card stock, and then distressed, that would be so cute. I did add eyes using the Viva Pearl Pen in black. Also another flower on one of the chicks.

Greenery was cut using the Olive branches and Flourish #3 dies, and cut with a olive tone card stock. I added little flowers made using the Tiny Flower kit to the greenery. I also used a LOVE Heart from the Sweetheart Candy die.

The frame was cut using 2 different dies for my scenery and sentiment. I chose to use the beautiful Mirror Mirror Doily Frame die, and the Scandinavian Oval Doily. Sentiment is from ODBD.

Cheery Lynn Designs Supplies Used:
