August Blog Hop "Flower Power".

 
A warm Hello to you today. I hope you are having a wonderful day.



 I must say the CLD flowers really do make for a beautiful card that I would be proud to give anyone. For the base of this card I matted the flower patterned paper with black cardstock then popped up the poka dot  paper cut at a angle on top of that. This will let me layer designs behind and in front of that angle piece for added dimension. I layered the  Sweethearts Edger  to the top of the angled piece.  I do want to point out the Whimsical Bird  that I have tucked in the flowers. It is just too cute.


This is the Cheery Lynn Designs August Blog Hop . August blog hop  will be "Flower Power". The CLD design team will be  showcasing a selection of  beautifully detailed flowers designed by Cheery Lynn Designs . If you just came from visiting Bonnie @ "Make Time To Craft"   You are on the right track. If not then head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs blog @  http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/ and start from the beginning so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects  from our design team.  Cheery Lynn Designs will be giving a $20.00 prize to one random commenter on the Cheery Lynn Blog Hop Post.


Now I would like to take the time to talk about the flowers I used here. The orange one is the Sunflower. I have used orange paper and cut two then off set them to make a fuller flower. I shaped the pedals with a stylus to give them a nice curve and dimension.

Both yellow flowers are cut from the same Cherry Blossom  die. For the bottom one I inked up around the edges only and spritzed it with water to blend the colors more. I off set the layers after shaping with the stylus.
The top yellow flower I inked in solid yellow then submersed it in water to even out the color and make it so I could get lots of wrinkles and texture with the stylus. I also shaped and assembled it differently so it looks like a different flower. This shows you can get different looks from the same die depending how you shape and assemble them.
 
These flowers I used are some of CLD older ones and they have newer ones as well. But old or new you just keep using them over and over as they make such beautiful flowers. You can take a peek at them all @https://www.cheerylynndesigns.com/flowers-1/  .  CLD has beautiful fillers for flower arrangements too. I have you two of their newer sets which are Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Set  and Fall Leaves 8 Piece Die Set . 

Sometimes just a twist of the peddles with tweezers can give you a nice effect. Or maybe wet your flower and place the peddles around a pencil and scrunch it together looks awesome too. I always spritz as they shape nicer that way and help to blend your colors nicely too. Just play around with them and you will get many different looks.

CLD has a tutorial section on their website that has great ideas for creating their beautiful flowers.
Check it out @ https://www.cheerylynndesigns.com/tutorials/

Live Love and Laugh

A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out hosting the blog today. I am featuring CLD beautiful Gardenia's today.


I have used the Nautical Wheeler Doily  and Lattice Valance Border  for my base. These both make for a elegant card. Especially on the dark background.


For the gardenia's I inked only the centers of the peddles and then spritzed them. The dies I used for them are the Gardenia Strip  and  Small Gardenia .  I shaped them with a stylus and then assembled them. I tucked in a few leaves from the Rose Leaf Strip .



The Live Laugh Love is one of my favorite sentiments. I inked here and there with purple and blue but also leaving some of the white for highlights.

I invite you now to come join the Bi-weekly  challenge

Happy Turkey Day



A warm hello to you. Glad to see you here today .


This is a bendi frame card. I layered the French Lattice Small in the background. I had cut the French Lattice and used as a stencil on the card I posted on July 14th. I saved the French Lattice Frame  and this is my inked French lattice background for this card. I used the Coved Rectangle Classic   and the Coved Rectangle - Scalloped  for the framed opening of the card.


Today I am featuring  three new die sets Cheery Lynn Designs has recently released. They are the Happy Turkey Day 7 Piece Die Set ,the Fall Pumpkin Patch 3 Piece Die Set  and the Fall Leaves 8 Piece Die Set .



Along the top I have layered the beautifully detailed leafy flourishes from the  Fall Pumpkin Patch 3 Piece Die Set . I layer three green leaves from the Fall Leaves 8 Piece Die Set  behind the one of the flourishes. The sentiment "Happy Turkey Day" from the Happy Turkey Day 7 Piece Die Set  was placed in the center of the background.


 
The turkey from the Happy Turkey Day 7 Piece Die Set  was layer at the front just behind the bendi frame. This turkey is just too cute and it's sign "Eat Beef is just priceless. Small leaves of different colors from these sets were scattered around the card.



These two pumpkins are from the Fall Pumpkin Patch 3 Piece Die Set . I have layered them to the very front of the frame. The grass is the Grass Border  and I did three layers of it in three different colors. Some of the grass was layer behind the frame and some in front of the pumpkins. This bendi frame really give you lots of dimension and lots of separated layers. These three new dies set I used really will make beautiful thanksgiving and fall cards.

Fancy Reindeer

A warm hello to you today. Glad to see you here.




 Cheery Lynn Designs has just release some wonderful new Christmas dies. I am featuring this new Fancy Reindeer 7 Piece Die Set  which is one of them . They are so nicely detailed.



My base for this card is a Bendi Fold which really enables you to get a lot of layers and dimension. I layered the Oval - Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies and Polynesian Sails Oval and added it to the top of the card for more shape and background. I embossed all the card pieced  with the Snowflake Flurries  before assembling it.




Here you can see all the detail on the Fancy Reindeer . I layered the Icicles Border along the curved part of the card. The trees are from the Camping Die Set . They make awesome winter/ Christmas trees too. The Happy Winter sentiment is from the new Winter Holiday Word 6 Piece Die Set. I cut up one of the  Dancing Snow Flurries into pieces and layered it here and there.



The reindeer head was layered to the center of the oval piece. And the Snowflake Set 2 where layered together and layered onto the top.

July 14th Birdhouse

A warm hello to you today.  There are so many beautiful bird sounds outside and birds fluttering every where that I though I would go for a bird themed card.




I used the French Lattice Small die as a stencil for my background. I cut it out and then placed it on my paper and inked different shades of oranges and yellows on top of it then removed it leaving me a beautiful background. I have kept the colored die cut and will use it on a up coming project that I will post on August 2nd so watch for it.



I cut and inked the Fancy Bird House  which has wonderful detail in it. The birds are from the Feathered Friends  and I cut them from a pattern paper which I think makes them look whimsical and cute. The corners are the Lace Corner Deco J . The sunflower fills in the corner and I used the leaves from the Sunflower Set to add to the sunflower.

I want to thank you for visiting today and for the comments you leave. I invite you now to come to Cheery Lynn Designs blog and join the challenge @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge . This will give you a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Sakura Flowers

A warm hello to you today.  I hope you are finding time to relax , craft and enjoy yourself today.


 
 I have feature the new  Sakura Flower Die and the  new Birthday Wishes Circle Die  from Cheery Lynn Designs May new release.
 

 


I started with a layered green and black base. I then cut the Fiona’s Magic Mirror  from some pretty flowered paper and inked it up.



Here is a close up of the Sakura Flower . It is a beautiful flower die with flowers, buds and greenery all in one die.



For the sentiment I cut the Birthday Wishes Circle Die  in green and then fussy cut the circle away leaving just the "Birthday Wishes". This give you a second option using the Birthday Wishes Circle Die  for another look. I layered the sentiment onto the Pierced Stacker #2 .

I hope you have been inspired and will go the Cheery Lynn  Designs and join the Bi Weekly Challenge

Be Happy

A warm Hello to you. Nice to see you here.  I am featuring another of the newly released sentiment dies from Cheery Lynn Designs  called "Be Happy".


I was trying to think outside the box and thought why not use the sentiment in place of the sunflower. Not sure what you will think but I kind of like it. It's just something a little different.


The Whimsical "Be Happy"  sentiment I cut  three times out of cardstock and layered them so it was more like chipboard. I inked it up with a couple of colors of distress inks. The flower part of the die I off set and shaped. I then placed the sentiment on the stem and leaves of the Sunflower Set instead of a flower for something different. The background was embossed with the Black Eyed Susans .


I cut two of the Nested Flower Pots  and cut the rim off one so I could do a double layer on the rim for added dimension. I place the cats from the Kitty Kitty Meow Meow  set in front of the pot.

I invite you now to come join the Bi-Weekly challenge over
