August 23rd Anything goes


Hi there. The challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is "Anything Goes". I started with a wood grain base then added the Chicken Wire . I had fun with the new Thankful Harvest  die. I followed the video that is on the homepage of CLD website by embossing instead of cutting the die and then coloring the areas the color I wanted them. I then cut out one and placed over the colored embossed design. How cool is that. I did the coloring and shading with copic markers. I colored the Sunflower with copics also and placed some leaves behind it from the  Build a Flower # 1. A few Wheat Heads here and there where tucked in behind. Last I added the Paris Signs 1  to the top corner with the text give thanks on it. I invite you now to come join our challenge

Aug 16th Doilies

Hello This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Doilies". I started with the Circle - Scalloped LG Stackers  folded in half  for the base. I then used the Doily Stacker Circles cut to size and layered on top of the base. Layered on top of the base is the Circle - Scalloped LG Stackers  and the Fleur De Lis Doily  followed by the Heart and Arrow  with the sentiment Love.  One of the Small Exotic Butterflies #2 w/Angel Wings  was added to the top right. I collected some of the pieces from the Fleur De Lis Doily  and layered them along the edge of the Doily Stacker Circles . A few pearls finished the design off nicely. Please come join the challenge

Back To Nature


A warm hello. Today I am going to share with you a card I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge. The theme is "Back to Nature (butterflies,birds, bees etc.)". I choose to make a card using just four dies. I like the way it turned out with all the dies being featured equally and all standing out nicely. I started with a black base. I then cut the largest of the Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame  set and layered it onto the base. I cut the wings from the Small Lace Butterfly w/Angel Wing  and colored it with copic markers. I cut the butterfly from the Small Lace Butterfly w/Angel Wing  in white and layered it on top of the colored wings. What a striking butterfly it created. I used the Leafy Flourish  in green on the corners and cut it again in white. I then cut the flowers off the white flourish and colored them to match the butterfly. I popped the colored flowers up on the flourish to give another layer. I used the sentiment Mother's with the "S" cut off and added Mother to the top corner. I really like how striking this all looks on the black base. I hope you will come join our challenge @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge  for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Have a crafty week.

Summer Fun

Welcome. Today I am sharing with you my card for the "Summer Fun" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. I started by drawing the shape of flip flops and cutting them out. I added two white strips of paper with the one end rounded for the straps and added a flower from the Tiny Flower Kit . How cute they turned out. I cut a narrow piece of pattern paper and used the Royal Scandinavian Border Set  to cut a design along the edge of it. I then layered it along the top. I cut the Fleur De Lis Doily (Set of 2) and backed the smaller one with cream paper. This made a beautiful background for the umbrella. To create the umbrella I used one of the  Circle Classic - Silver Stackers  cut in half. I then cut the fancy edge along the bottom of the umbrella with the Royal Scandinavian Border Set  in purple pattern paper and layered it along the bottom. I used the small design from the Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 to layer at the top of the umbrella. A skewer stick was then added to finish off the umbrella. The sentiment Friend  was added to the bottom corner. The flip flops were layer on the opposite bottom corner. Some tiny bling gave it that little extra. I invite you now to come join the challenge @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Have a crafty week my friends.

Anything Goes /Halloween


Welcome back. I have used a few of the new Halloween dies on this 7.5 x 8.5 mini album cover page for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge "Anything Goes". I started by layering a couple of the different sizes of frames from the Deutschland Boutique Stacker A2 Frame  set. I then layered the Trick or Treat , Home Sweet Home , Jack-O'-Lanterns . and Tomb Stone  { all newly released dies } on top of the frames.  The cutest little crows along the top of the one frame is from the Tomb Stone set. The tiny witch is from the Bundle of 7 Dies  set. The spider web is from the Lace Corner Deco H  set. The Ornamental Gate  is used behind the Jack o Lanterns and House. I cut a third gate and cut the top of the pickets off and layered in front of the tomb stone. These dies used together really do make a great cover page for a Halloween mini album. I invite you to come join our challenge

Silver and /or Gold

 
Hello The theme for the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Silver and / or Gold".  I wanted to show you as many of the new Christmas dies as I could so I did  a  8.5 by 8.5 cover page for a Christmas mini album. I started with a white base and stamped some clouds on it. I tore some paper to make the snowbanks. The Victorian Picket Fence  was layered along the front. Then I stared layering all the beautiful Christmas dies after cutting and inking them all up. The Gingerbread House  was placed just a touch behind the snow bank with the candy cane and candies on each side of it. The Snowflake Delight 2  was layered in the top corner. One of the snowflakes from the Snowflake Set 2 was place in the center of it and one on the fence. I then cut the Toy Soldier  in blue. red and gold and cut them to layer the different colors were I wanted them. Then I  place a piece of flesh colored paper  for the face and hands and brown for the hair on the die and cut the pieces to layer for them areas. He is just priceless.  The Reindeer Fun  dies was used next. I cut him in brown and then used a different brown for the background and fussy cut around the reindeer. I cut a second one in gold and then cut out the accents and layered it on top adding red bling to them. The nose was cut from red metallic paper. He is so adorable.  The  Icicles Border   was placed across the top. The Paris Signs 1 was placed in the top left corner with the sentiment Believe layered on top. Well I have just used several of the new Christmas dies used for you to get ideas from. Be sure to check back next week when I will be doing another cover page but for a Halloween mini album using several of the new Halloween dies .  I now invite you to join our challenge

July12 th White on White


Hi I am back with another challenge for Cheery Lynn Designs. The theme is "White on White. I started by embossing  the Lace Square Heart with the Wood Grain  and matting it onto white cardstock. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock with the Square - Scalloped LG Stackers  and layered the Sweetheart Frame  on top. I then layer these two matted layers together. The Fancy Bird House  was layered next followed by the Pierced Banners  and dove from the Feathered Friends. The Paris Signs 1 was added to the top corner after printing a sentiment on it. A black gem was added for the eye of the dove and a bit of bling to make it sparkle.  I think this white on white gives a really elegant look to this card. I invite you to come join the challenge @http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge . Have a crafty week my friends.
