Thank You

A warm Hello to you today.   I had a couple of  flowers in my stash that I had previously made using the Chrysanthemum Strip.  So I used them and created this card around them.


I started with a beautiful gold pattern paper to match the flowers. I layered the Lattice Heart & Vines  to the center and layered the two chrysanthemums flowers made from the Chrysanthemum Strip . A few of the Flourish #13  leaves were tucked behind the flowers. The sentiment thank you from the Thank You #2 was layered along the bottom. A simple yet elegant card.

I thank you for visiting my blog and for the comments you leave. They are appreciated. Please come join the challenge @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 store certificate. I would love to see what you create.

Have a wonderful crafty week.

On The Road

A warm hello to you today.  Not sure if you would call this card clean and simple but it was definitely a quick and simple card.
 


For the base I used a product that Cheery Lynn Designs is now selling called Kraft-Tex. It is tough and doesn't tear and really looks like leather. I embossed the Kraft-Tex using the Gears Embossing Plate  . I layered the  Pierced Stacker #4 on top of that followed by the smallest of the  Circle Stitch and Cut Tool   with Happy Birthday printed on it.  I tucked some of the assorted gears from the Gears (Set of 9) in and around the circle. Last I cut the motorcycle from the Kraft-Tex and layered it for my focal point. It does makes a  great manly card.

I invite you now to come and join the  bi-weekly challenge

Dream Catcher

A warm hello to you all.  I hope you are having a nice sunny day. Today I am featuring the Crafty Ann Collection's Card Cover Maker #4 as well as the detailed CLD Dream Catchers #1 on my card.


I started my base with a white piece of cardstock. I die cut the Card Cover Maker #4 from the center of the paper. I then embossed around the edge using the Oval IOE Plates and the Frame It Embossing Folder. There was a bit of space at each end which I added a couple of embossed lines to by using a scorpal.


I added  a flower matting  and green matting to the back of my base.




I have layered the center of the Mirror Mirror Doily Frame (Set of 3) to the center of the card. The sentiment Love and You  were layered onto the doily.


Here is a close up of the beautifully detailed Dream Catchers #1 with a some bling added.

Believe

Hello.  It is nice to see you here. Today I am going to share with you a card featuring the  Quadrafoil Tag and the Fleur De Lis Border from the last new CLD release. They are both such pretty and intricate designs.


My base was started with black cardstock. I cut two pieces of mauve paper and then cut one edge on each piece with the Fleur De Lis Border Set - B680. I cut a strip of the pattern paper and layered the two pieces of mauve paper on each side of it with the cut pattern facing each other. I then layered the French Lattice Small at the top. This gave me my base that I wanted to build on.


I used the Quadrafoil Tag cut in both purple paper and white paper. I fussy cut the oval from the white which was only a couple of short easy snips. I then layered the sentiment Believe to the center of the tag. I cut another tag in purple and cut the top and bottom flourish design from it to use as my corners. This set does come with a separate flourish design but I wanted bigger corner pieces so choose to cut them from the tag itself. For the One Free Wish  fairy I cut it in three different colors. Skin tone, flower pattern paper for the dress and purple pattern patter for the wings. The glitter on the wings give her the finishing touch. I did cut the fairy from the rest of the design as well.


To the bottom left corner I used the  Small Gardenia to create a beautiful flower and fussy cut some of the leaves from the paper and place under it.

Here is a closer look at the bottom half of the card showing the pretty borders.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. I enjoy reading them and hearing from you.

Mar 25th Easter girl Bunny

  A warm hello to you. I wish you a Happy Easter. It is cool and rainy here today but at least we have no snow left in our yard so it should be a good weekend for a Easter egg hunt. With Easter weekend here I wanted to share a cute Easter card with you.


 My base is black CS, Rectangle Scalloped LG Silver Stackers pierced using the Pierce Plate Large Parallel Rectangle and then the  Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame .



I off set the sentiment Happy Easter sentiment after cutting it in two different colors to give a shadow effect and added some stitching to it with a black marker. I thought the cute bunny would look good standing on the letters and holding a bouquet of tulips created from the negatives of the Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame . Two of the cute chicks from the Chicks (set of 3) stayed in the grass cut from the Grass Border while the other chick hopped up on the letters with the bunny. These chicks really are priceless.



Here I have used the Mini Fanciful Flourish Right and added some flowers to it from the Tiny Flower Kit . On this close up can really see what a nice textured background the Pierce Plate Large Parallel Rectangle makes.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. I enjoy reading them and hearing from you.

Live Inspired


Hi I hope you are having a wonderful day. I have a card to share with you today using the beautiful CLD flower dies.
 

I always keep my scraps of paper as they can make the most beautiful card bases. I matted this beautiful designer paper with black cardstock for my base. I then layered the intricate Japanese Garden Lace Oval doily. All it needed now was flowers.
 

 
 
I stamped a sentiment on the inside opening of  the doily.

Here I have used the Judy's Blooms , Black Eyed Susan Strip , Sweet Williams Strip , and the Shasta Daisy to make the assortment of flowers. The Embellishment #2 was used for some of the centers for the flowers.


I used the Fern Leaf  for filler behind the flowers and added one of the butterflies from the Mini Butterflies w Angel Wings .

Thank You for stopping by today and for all the comments that get left. I enjoy reading them. Have a crafty week my friends.

Brusho Butterfly


A warm hello.  I hope you are having some of the nice spring weather that we are enjoying here. I am going to share with you  a Clean and Simple card. I have been playing with the watercolor Brusho's. They are so vibriant that I thought the butterflies would look pretty done with them.
 
 

I started with a black and purple base. I then cut the  Fleur De Lis A2 Card Facer - B701 out of some watercolor paper.


I masked around the  Fleur De Lis A2 Card Facer   pattern so the brusho color stayed on the inside of the cut outs. I then sprinkled some brusho and then spritzed it with water so the colors  mixed and spread out making a pattern of their own.
 I took another piece of water color paper and sprinkled and spritzed again and then used that piece of paper to as a background for the butterfly that I had already cut from the Small Exotic Butterflies #2 w/Angel Wings in black. It really makes this butterfly striking. The sentiment Love  was also cut from the  colored water color paper and inked up.

Happy Easter


A warm hello to all you Cheery Lynn Fans . I have been thinking easter is right around the corner and wanting to do something special for my grandkids. What a better way than to start with a cute card and go from there.


I have chosen to feature the Chicks 2 from the last new release. They are just too cute.  I started with a pink base. The next layer is white cardstock that I pierced with the Pierce Plate Large Parallel Rectangle and then die cut the bottom edge of it with the Curved Border Set . I cut the Burlap Border out of some wicker looking paper and only popped out the odd cut outs and left some in to give it more of a wicker basket appearance. I like the effect it gave. Happy Easter was cut from some pattern paper and inked up. To the top corner I added the Fanciful Flourish  and use the Embellishments 3 for the cute tiny flowers.


Now for the Cute eggs and chicks. I layered the cracked egg from the Chicks 2 set of three onto the Lace Egg Five .


Here I layered another of the Chicks 2  onto the Lace Egg Seven . That chick is just priceless.



Here I layer the third chick from Chicks 2 onto the Lace Egg Five . I know this card will bring a smile to my grandkids face and that make is so worth creating a homemade card with love.

I would like to Thank You for stopping by my blog today and for all the comments you leave. They are really appreciated.
