June 28th Christmas in July

A warm hello to you. This week at Cheery Lynn Designs is the "Christmas in July" challenge. I decided to do a step card with the new Step Card Bundle Set #4. After cutting it out I embossed it with the Snowflake Flurries . I just love this embossing folder for Christmas and winter cards. On the left side of the card I layered the  Snowflake Doily w/Angel Wing, Poinsettia 2 and then tucked the leaves off the Holly Corner and branches from the Wreath Strip in behind.  I added the flower flourish from the Step Card Bundle Set #4 on the bottom left. Merry Christmas Set  was layered on the right side at the back. The Deer in the Forest  set was cut and layered at the front. A piece of the Icicles Border was place along the top of the sentiment. Some glitter here and there and bling in the middle of the snowflakes finished this card off nicely. Please come join the fun for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge. I would love to see your creation.

Anything Goes

A warm Hello to you.  "Anything Goes is the challenge theme at Cheery Lynn Designs this week".  I used one of my favorite stamps and colored her with copics. I matted her onto the Celtic Chain Rectangle  and then matted again with two more colors. I layered the Victorian Romance Flourish in the top corner and then layered the center from the Nautical Wheeler Doily. The Flourish Leaf Strip  cut the leaf flourishes and then I place the flower from the Daisy Strip . The center of the flower was cut from the Embellishment #1 . I invite you now to come join the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge

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 @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/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.

Hello "Make it Manly". That is this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. I always enjoy making manly card for them special guys in our lives. And of course I love the Arizona Cowboy set which goes perfectly for manly cards. I started with chocolate cardstock and then a layer of kraft cardstock.

TOPS Fundraiser Art Board

This is a multi media canvas that I am donating  to my TOPS chapter to use as a fundraiser. I have used gesso and stencils to get the barn board look and colored it with gelatos. The center piece with the hearts is chip board from Dusty Attic as is the reeds at the bottom. The flowers, birdhouse, hummingbird and dragonfly are all created from Cheery Lynn Design dies. The butterfly is a stamped image and colored with gelatos.
