Just For You

Hello   Today I am doing a quick and simple card for you. 


For a quick card it helps to used a pretty paper for the background to build on. In this case it gave me come beautiful flowers and color to perch the bird on. 


Here I have just cut a bigger oval from the background and then cut a smaller oval from the  Oval Stitch and Cut tool set. I really like the difference the stitching makes around the oval. Then the sentiment Just For You Oval  fit perfectly in the center.


The bird perched in the flowers and on the sentiment are from the Birds of Earth and Sky  set. The butterfly is from the  Tiny Things with Wings  set. So when you need a card quickly this type of card is quick and easy to create. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave. They are always appreciated. Have a crafty day my friends.

It's a Boy

A warm hello to you.  I am sharing a card  I created using some of the dies from Cheery Lynn Designs last release which was the "Bohemian Collection".




Now isn't this a fabulous sun and moon perfect for a baby card. And such detail.  And all the pieces that lift out to give them added dimension. Got to love these ones.



I cut the Bohemian Sun  from some speckled paper and inked it up a bit. As simple as that and it was ready to layer onto the card. Along the bottom I layered the  Anastasia Border  which gives it a nice lacey look.


This moon is one of the dies from the  Hippie Heroine  set. Again just a little ink and it is done ready to layer. Notice the leaves on this one and the sun that pop out for the added dimension



Here I have used the Pierced Banners  to layer the  It's a Boy  onto. This die set also comes with the sentiment Girl to so you can change it to "It's a Girl". 

Well that is it for this time. Be sure the check out the Bohemian Collection @ https://cheerylynndesigns.com/new-releases/ . There are some unique dies in this collection.  Have a crafty day my friends.

Graduation

With graduations just around the corner I thought I would be a good opportunity to share a graduation card with you .


To start I matted this black and white graduation paper onto white cardstock for my base. Being photos are such a huge part of graduation I used the Film Strip Border Die at a angle across the card front.


The Graduation Set 2 Piece Die Set  is a beautiful and perfect die set for grad cards. I cut them in white and burgundy for I could make part of the tassel and the ribbon in a different color. I then layered them onto the film strip.  What awesome detail this set has and the distress ink really make the details stand out.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. I always enjoy hearing what you have to say. I have two grandchildren graduating this month so is a exiting month for me. I hope all who are celebrating graduations enjoy celebrating. Have a crafty day.

Happy Fathers Day

A warm Hello to you.  Today I am sharing a Father's Day card with you.


For the base I embossed a foil paper with the Do it yourself Embossing Plate .  This is a very cool embossing plate to use on men and boy cards.


I then cut and layered the Frame Die  onto the embossed base.


The Frame Die   has these tools, nut, bolts and chain that cut out of the center of the frame. I cut the screwdriver in black and silver so I could layer the black handle part over the silver handle to give it a realistic look. I placed the Sentiment Tag 3 to print the sentiment on and layer the tools on. There is such great detail in all these die cuts which Cheery Lynn is so known for.

Thanks you for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave. I always enjoy hearing what you have to say. Have a crafty day my friends.

Penny the Piggy

Hi
A warm Hello to you. For this  card I have gone country. I think Penny the Pig   is so cute so wanted it to be my focal point. But after creating this card I think the gate is as much the focal point as the pig. But they look awesome together.


For the gate I just cut strips of wood grain paper,curved the tops of the slats and layered  them onto black cardstock to create a gate. The Hinges  really finished the gate off to make it so realistic.


The Happy  and Birthday  sentiments fit along the boards perfectly.


Now isn't Penny the Pig   just too cute. I cut the pig from a pattern pink paper and inked the edges. I placed black CS behind the eyes, nose and the word Laugh.  It always makes me smile to see this pig on a card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave. I hope I have inspired you to try creating a country card. Have a crafty day my friends.

Just For You

Glad to see you here. Today I am sharing a card with flowers. To me flowers always make for a beautiful card to give to that someone special.


I started the base of this card by embossing it with the Hearts and Rose Leaves Embossing Plate .
It is always nice to have that extra texture on the base of your cards.


I then layered the Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily  to one side of the card and the Southern Charm Valance Die   at the top and bottom of the card.


The Mini Flourish One  was used as a background for the flowers and leaves.  The flowers are the Chrysanthemum Strip inked up with distress inks for color. The leaves were cut from the Build a Flower #2  and tucked in behind the flowers. A pearl was place in the center of each flower to finish them off .


I cut the sentiment "Just For You" from the Just For You Oval Die  . I then trace the outer edge of the die onto the purple paper and fussy cut it out to place behind the sentiment. The XOXOXO were placed along the bottom of the sentiment.

I would like to Thank You for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. I hope I have inspired you to play with some of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers. They have a huge variety of flower dies to choose from.

Happy Easter


A warm hello to you.  With Easter just over a week away I thought I would share a Easter card with you. I also want to wish you a Happy Easter.


I started by using the Step Card  as my base. I then layered the largest doily of the  Oval Doily Stacker One   stacker die set. I embossed the base of the doily with the Black Eyed Susan's Embossing Plate .


I cut the Daisy Chain Border Die  in green and then cut the flowers from it in a few different colors. I layered it around the edge of the doily. I added a couple of the Tiny Fanciful Flourish Right & Left  to the bottom corners of the step card.


Here I cut the Happy Easter  sentiment in two colors and off set them to give it a shadowed look. The  Spring Basket 1 was layered next and the Easter Bunny  then tucked into the basket. Cherry Lynn Designs does have some cute Easter dies for making Easter cards.

Thank You for visiting my blog today and for the comments you have left on my other posts. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a crafty day my friends.

Fuchsia With Love

Glad to see you here. I hope you are having a great day. Today I am playing with the rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs but creating fuchsia flowers with them.


It is hard to see in the photo but I embossed the base with the  Hearts and Rose Leaves Embossing Plate  . I then layer the Large Sunflower Doily  in the center of the card.


Next I cut two of the Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath   and off set them . I added the Ivy Corner Flourish Die   behind and in front of the wreath. I then tucked in the Whistle a Happy Tune and added the Tags 4 to the corner. I colored the birds and inked up a lot of the other elements.


Now for the beautiful fuchsia. I used two of the Tea Rose medium  petals and cupped them with my stylus. I then off set and layered them together. I used the Tea Rose small for some to make smaller ones.  I used the sepal part of the Large Rose  die and curled it upwards for the top of the fuchsia . The sepals of the medium- Rose  were  used for the smaller fuchsia. A small piece of the medium- Lollipop Fringe Cutie  was used for the stamens of the fuchsia.

I always like when you can get several different uses and looks out of one die. So I was impressed when I could create fuchsia from the rose dies. How cool is that! We just really need to play with our dies and imaginations.

Thank you so much for visitingmyblog today and for all the comments you have left on my other projects. I always like to hear what you have to say. Have a crafty day my friends.
