Happy Halloween

Well today is a Special day over at Cheery Lynn Designs. They have just released some awesome new dies for us all to create with. You got to go to and check them out. I decided for todays release I would work with the new halloween dies. They are going to make a nice addition to add to my collection of  other Halloween dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. As some of you know I do scenic stamping and thought a night scene with  Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath and the Trick or Treat Border would make a perfect Halloween scene. How cool is that trick or treat border. Gotta love it as well as the Happy Halloween twiggy wreath. Awesome Halloween dies Cheery Lynn.

Beautiful Borders

Welcome back. You got to check out this weeks " Beautiful Borders Challenge" over at Cheery Lynn Designs. I started with some script paper  then cut and popped up some brick paper to go with the Bird Bath set. I placed  the Lattice Heart Flourish in the center and added the sentiment Hello. For the border I used the beautiful Flower Chain Border. I cut three of the borders and then cut the flowers from two of them. I inked the flowers up and layered them. What beautiful cute detailed flowers they make. I cut up the Ivy Corner Flourish into sections and added a few leaves here and there among the flowers.  Come join the challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Check out the other design team members creations for more inspiration.

I'm Sew Happy

A warm Hello to all. This weeks challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs is "In Stitches". I started by using the Coved Rectangle Stitch Nesting set and cut it in two sizes. I stacked them on a green base. The Chasing Rainbows Doily is tucked behind the one corner. The Ivy Corner Flourish along with Sweet Christine flowers were layered on the doily. The Double Scalloped Border was placed along the right side. I took a thread and needle and started stitching around the  nesting set with a few stitches and then weaved my needle into the card so I can finish stitching at a later date. LOL. I thought the needle with the thread attached was a cool touch.  The stamped sentiment was perfect for this challenge theme. OK now it is your turn. Hop on over to and enter your creation for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I would love to see your card.

The Snowflake Mesh Border was used along the bottom. The Colonial Lamp Post stands to the left.

The sentiment Merry Christmas was place on the corner layer. The Snowflakes dies has a assortment of all shapes and sizes of snowflakes on it. They make such beautiful snowflakes falling from the sky. I invite you now to come join out Cheery Lynn Design challenge@ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Wonderful Weddings

A warm hello to all. Today I am sharing a wedding card I created for the Cheery Lynn Design challenge "Wonderful Weddings."  It's a great theme with lots of weddings around the corner. I was going for simple yet elegant with only using a few dies. I started with a slightly patterned paper. I then cut the Sweetheart Frame and put music paper behind it. I tucked the marriage sentiment into the frame and added the Victorian Romance Flourish to the corner. The Black Eyed Susan and two of the Sweet Christine flowers finished the corner off nicely. The small Add a Flourish gave it a nice touch at the bottom. Liquid pearls in silver really worked well on the flourishes to give it a elegant look. I hope you will join us in the challenge this week @ for your chance to win a $20.00 store certificate. Have a great week.

Red, White and Blue

A warm Hello to everyone. With Fathers Day around the corner I thought I would do a Fathers Day card for the "Red, White and Blue" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs.
I cut a blue and white base and then a blue and white layer with the Coved Rectangle Classic Lg. I used the Pierce Plate LG Parallel Rectange to give a few of the layers some added texture. I then cut the Lighthouse twice(one in white and once in red) I then alternated sections of the red on top of the white. A couple of Olive Branches were added to the corner. The sentiments Fathers and Day were added as another layer. This makes a nice manly card for Father's Day. Hope to see you join the challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Here I am back with my creation for the "Roses" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. Cheery Lynn Designs really does have some awesome flower dies and the rose dies are no exception.  Just look at the beautiful roses made with white paper and a little distress ink. My base was embossed with the Clocks Embossing Plate and some ink applied to make the clocks pop more. I layered the Large Sunflower Doily and the Sophie's Heart Mini. The beautiful Birdhouse with Lattice was place along the side. The Tea Rose Small and Tea Rose Medium  were used to make the beautiful roses. These detailed leaves come on the die strip with the roses.  The humming birds and dragonflies were from the Tiny Things with Wings set. Last I added the sentiment Mother. Now it is your turn. Come on over to and show us your creations for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.
