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 @ 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.

Keep it Krafty

Hello to all. This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is " Keep It Krafty" I always like the results when I use kraft paper. I have a couple of grandkids graduating this year and I had previously purchased the new Graduation die set from Cheery Lynn Designs. So here is my creation using this dies set. I starts with the Coved Rectangle - Scalloped LG Stackers in kraft for the base followed with the Coved Rectangle Stitch Nesting Set  in black. I then layered the Pierced Stacker #4 with the sentiment typed on it. I tucked two different sizes of the Horizon Fishtail Banners behind the pierced stacker. I popped the Certificate and hat up from the Graduation Set and added the  Graduation sentiment along the top. I used the Paris Signs 2 for the corners. I cut it out and then trimmed one edge off to make beautiful corners. The tiny flourish under the sentiment is one of the cut outs from the cowboy boot from the Arizona Cowboy set. A bit of bling and it was finished. I have to say these graduation dies really make a beautiful grad card. Please come join our challenge

Creative Corners

Hello This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Creative Corners".  I decided to create a sympathy card for the challenge. I embossed my base with the Dotted Swiss  embossing plate and used the reverse side for a different look. I then cut the fancy edge with the Curved Border Set .  I added the Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily which is so elegant. I left the smaller doily in white and inked here and there on the bigger doily to give it a variegated look instead of inking it solid. I layered  the butterfly from the Tiny Things with Wings  set on the doily. The Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 was placed near the top and the sentiment Sympathy was layered onto it as well as the hummingbird from the Tiny Things with Wings  set. The corners that are part of the Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 set were place on the two corners of the card. Some bling finished the card off nicely. Please come join our challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I will be back next week with a new creation for the next challenge.
