New Doily Designs

Glad you dropped by. This is the card I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs "Borders and Edgers " challenge. I embossed the base with the Snowflake Flurries embossing plate. I layered the Snowflake Mesh Border on blue cardstock and placed it up the side. I then featured the Mirror Mirror Doily Frame as my focal point. This is one of the new doily sets and has three dies in the set. The big frame is one of the dies. The blue center is a second one from the set and the one that Merry Christmas is layered on is the third die in the set. These doilies are so versatile now with them having two or three dies in the set depending which one you buy. They are really easy to mix and match the the smaller dies make perfect tiny doilies. The small center doily with the pearl in the middle of it is  the small die from the Dutch Daisy Doily set.  Hope you can find some time to enter our challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ Cheery Lynn Designs. I would love to see your creations.

Vintage Chistmas

A Warm Hello to everyone today. We have a new challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs happening. The theme is "Vintage". So here is a vintage Christmas card . The base was embossed with the Snowflake Flurries.  I layered  the Veinna Waltz Circle Stackers with the Dutch Daisy Doily. I used the Joy To The World Wreath die to go around the edge of the Vienna Waltz stacker and the joy to the world sentiment from it in the top corner. The image was then placed in the center. Icicles Border was place along the top. The French Lattice Small was torn and place in  the bottom left corner in front of the Colonial Lamp Post. Three poinsettias from the Poinsettia Strip were layer on the doily. A couple of Holly Corners were tucked in behind the poinsettias. A bit of glitter was added to the icicles and wreath branches. These dies did make a beautiful vintage Christmas card.

All Hung Out To Dry

What an exciting day at Cheery  Lynn Designs. They have just release some new dies today. You may want to check them out @  I have chosen three of the new dies to work with on this card which are Arizona Cowboy, Deutchland Doily and Say What. I started with the Wood Grain embossing plate for my card base. I inked the Wood Grain plate with black ink and then placed grey paper down on it and embossed it. Wow talk about nice texture. I heat embossed the Barbed Wire and hung the beautifully detailed boots and hat on it from the new Arizona Cowboy set.  The Deutchland Doily was place in the bottom right corner with the cowboy image layered onto it. I printed the sentiment on the Old Barn Board and  Howdy was printed on one the Say What shapes. The Hinges were added to both of them. The scroll designs on the sentiments were from the cut out pieces of the boot designs. A couple of horseshoes from the Arizona Cowboy set were heat embossed and hung on the card. The Cattails and Reeds finished the bottom left corner off nicely. Be sure to check out the other creations from out design team using the new dies @

Mixed Media Halloween

Nice to see you here. We have a fun week at Cheery Lynn Designs for our weekly challenge.  "Halloween" is the theme. Thought I would try a little mixed media. So I arranged several dies cuts  on the canvas including Spiderweb, Spider Web Mesh Border , Witch's Laundry and the Burlap Border. I then place a couple of the Spooky Trees and the Happy Halloween set along the bottom. I used some distress ink to color some gauze to give it some dimension. If you notice the bottom left hand corner I used the new die Trick Or Treat to add some little people in their costumes. They are priceless. A few spiders here and there embellished it nicely. Do you want to have a little fun with the Halloween theme? Well just come to Cheery Lynn designs @ and enter you design for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.  If you looking for more inspiration check out and see what else our other design team members have created.

Darling Daisies

A warm hello to all. This card I want to share with you today was created for the "Lace Challenge" for Cheery Lynn Designs. This card has a two piece front on it where you can hide a little sentiment behind the flap. The flap is cut from the  Kaleidoscope Lace French Flair. I attached the Dancing Doily Lace along the edge. The Darling Daisies were cut and arranged along the bottom with the layers of Grass Border to ground them. With and Sympathy sentiments turned it into a nice sympathy card. The cutest tiny dragonflies from the Tiny Things with Wings set were placed here and there. A touch of glitter on their wings made them look cool. I now invite you to come join us in the challenge @ for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I would love to see your creations.

Gift Box

Glad to see you here. I am sharing with you a cute little gift box that I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge " Die Cut Flowers".  This little box is cut from the  die Matchbox Large. It is so quick and easy to cut and assemble. Like 2 or 3 minutes maybe. There are three different die sets that each cut a different size of box. Just put something little inside and it will brighten up someone's day. Plus they are fun to decorate and good for any occassion. I started decorating the box by added some mesh, ribbons and beads. I then added the Large Rose and stuck the leaves from the Tea Rose Medium in behind. Two of the Add A Flourish were used for filler. I then put Alison's Ribbons around the sides of the box. A beaded corsage pin was stuck in behind. Now how easy was that! I invite you to come join the "Die Cut Flowers" challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @

All About Texture

Hello I am back with the new challenge @ Cheery Lynn Designs. It is "All About Texture" this week. It's the perfect challenge to play with my CLD embossing plates. One of my favorites is the Foliage. So I embossed the base with the Foliage embossing plate and then inked round the edges to pop it a bit. I like this effect as it kind of frames the focal point of the flower arrangement. I assembled three flowers from the Black Eyed Susan Strip and then used the leaves and stems from the Orchid die. With the Grass Border, Wheat Heads, and Tiny Fanciful Flourish  it finished it off nicely. If you haven't tried the CLD embossing plates out yet you should give them a try. They really do add nice texture to your projects. Hope you will join me in our challenge for you chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ Have a great week.
