Happy Valentine's Day

A warm hello to you.  I want to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day and share with you my valentine card that I created.

I started with the green base cut with the Square Stitch and Cut Tool   and then layered a striped paper and then another green paper. I then popped up the Quadrafoil Square Doily   on top of the three squares. All were inked around the edges with distress inks. I then cut the Hearts and Doves Placecard #2 and used just the front of it. This place mat makes a cool tag to build on.   I backed it with red paper to show all the details and popped it up on the quadrafoil doily. .

Now the fun begins by creating a beautiful flower arrangement. I made the flowers using the Sweet Williams Strip  and the Sweet Christine . For the filler I used the Branch and the Dandelions . The tag was created using three sizes of the Tags 4  and layering them together. That it for this week. I hope you will join me again next Friday when I will share another project with you.

You may have noticed  a change in our blog challenge. They will now run Bi-Weekly and you can enter one card each week. It doubles your chances of winning. So please come and join the "Tickled Pink" challenge @ Good luck to everyone joining the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today and thanks to  all of you who leave the nice comments.

Happy Birthday

A warm hello to you.  Today I want to share a masculine card with you. It's fun to make special cards for the boys and men in our lives.

I started by making the base using the Step Card Bundle Set .  Cheery Lynn Designs has a few step card dies and they are so quick and easy to make a base with. I layered the old car and the sentiment  Happy and Birthday on the right hand side of the card.

On the taller side of the card I layered the new Windmill .  This windmill will be great for masculine cards or even placed behind flowers as I have done previously.  This was a very quick card to make with just a few dies.

I want to thank you for joining me today and for the comments you leave. Please join our challenge
@ The theme is "Tickled Pink". I would love to see what you create and you would have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Have a crafty week

Potted Sunflower

Hello Glad you stopped by.  Today I am featuring the new Sunflower Set  as well as a few other new dies. Cheery Lynn Designs new release had so many beautiful dies and they are so easy to work with to make beautiful cards very quickly.

For my base I started with the Rectangle Scalloped LG Purple Stackers  and then layered a beige paper next that I embossed with the Black Eyed Susans. A little ink on the embossing makes it pop a bit more. I then made a frame with the Rectangle Stitch and Cut Tool  by cutting the center out of it and then popped it up. The new Deutschland Square Doily  was tucked in behind the frame with the Deutschland Tag  layered off side. The corners are from the new Deutschland Accents. The accents, tag and flower pot were all cut in black and then Inka  Golds was added to give them a metal look. These new accents and tags are a nice addition to match up with previously release designs from CLD.

Here is a close up of the new Sunflower Set  that was potted in one the  new Flower Pots . All the detail in the sunflower is just amazing. With a little distress ink and a stylus to shape it a bit it will turn out beautifully with hardly any work.

I appreciate that you stopped by to check out my creation. Thanks again to those who take the time to leave a comment. It is always nice to hear what you think.

I would like to invite you now to join our challenge @ The theme is "Anything Goes".
I would love to see your creations.

With Love

Glad to see you here. I thought I would share another card with you using two more of the newly released dies.  And being Valentines Day is just around the corner I decided to create a Valentine card.

I used some nice heart paper for the background and then layered the Oval Stitch and Cut Tool   , Fleur De Lis Oval Doily  and the Cupid in that order. I added the Branch in the bottom corner along with the Dandelions for the tiny flowers. For the top corner I cut the Heart and Arrow and stamped a sentiment on it. I then popped it up over the doily.

Here is a close up of the Fleur De Lis Oval Doily  and Cupid. It really is amazing what a little distress ink can do when used on the die cuts.

I hope I have inspire you and that you will join the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. The theme this week is "Sweethearts".

Cheery Lynn Designs New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs January New Release Blog Hop.  We are so excited to showcase the wonderful new dies that were just released.  If you just came from visiting  Bonnie @  "Make Time To Craft"  you are on the right track.  If not, head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog @ and start from the beginning so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects  from our design team.  "Follow through to the end of the hop and leave a comment on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog too for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate."
For this card I have chosen to feature three New Release Dies. They are the
New  Windmill , New  Fleur De Lis Oval Doily, and the New  Flower Pots.  

I used the Oval Stitch and Cut Tool - LG Silver Stitch Tool   for the three base layers. This is one from the last release and I am using it a lot. It is one of my many favorites. You can see the beautiful New Fleur De Lis Oval Doily  in the center. Got to love this one too. I layered a piece of map paper in the center of the doily and built up from there.


Here I have tucked the New Windmill in behind the flower arrangement. One of the flower pots from the New Flower Pots  was used to pot some flowers in.

This flower arrangement was created using the  Shasta Daisy , Medium Rose , Embellishment #2, and
the  Olive Branches   with some of the Wheat Heads  tucked in front of the New Windmill .

Here I took a piece of green paper and put glossy accents on it. While that was still wet I place one of the  Flower Pots  in black  and let the glossy accents squish through for a glassy 3D look. I really like the look it gave to the  Flower Pot  . As you can see the flower pot has wonderful details in it. I potted the Darling Daisies  and created tiny flowers as filler using the Dandelions.  A few pearls were added to the flower center and along the top right to give the final finishing touches.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  Your next visit on the blog hop is with Jenny @ "Jen's Paper Obsession" but before you go please leave a comment. I always appreciate comments.

Picture Perfect

How Exciting! Cheery Lynn Designs has just released a large assortment of new dies for us crafters to create with. You can check them out @ .

Some of my favorite dies from this new release are the film related dies so I decides to create a 8X8  page layout with them. I can see using these dies a lot.  They are amazing.

Here I started with a black matt with a white layer on top.  I layered the New Film Strip Border  across each corner of the page and stamped some sentiments inside a couple of them. A few more sentiments were stamped around the page.

Here I have cut the biggest of the New  Film Set which is a 2 piece set  and placed a photo inside it.

This photo show using two of the three piece set of the New  Polaroid Film . Again some photos were placed in the center of them. The New sentiment Lovely  was layered along side them.

Here I cut one of the New  Polaroid Film  out of a photo and layered the Camera inside it.

Thanks for stopping by and before you go please leave a comment below and let me know what you think of these New Film Related Dies.  Have a crafty week.

Jan 8 th Winter Wishes

A warm hello to all you Cheery Lynn fans out there.  We have been getting lots of snow here lately so thought I would share with you a winter card. I love snowmen. They always melt my heart. So a snowman card it is.

For my base I used the Rectangle Scalloped LG. I just got the Rectangle Stitch and Cut Tool  and the
Oval Stitch and Cut Tool   and I am so impressed them. They really do add a little something extra to your cards.  At the top right corner I layered the Snowflake Set 2 with the mittens from the Christmas Knick Knacks die set. On the left corner I used one of the dies from the the Say What? set and printed "Winter Wishes" on it.

For the  floral arrangement I used lots of cut outs from the Wreath Strip  for the base with the Snowflake Set 2 layered on top. The Sweet Williams and  Cherry Blossom  brightened it up.
A bit of glitter was added to give it the final touch.
I hope you can find the time and come join our challenge @ Joining the challenge will give you a chance to win a  $20.00 shopping spree.

Looking forward to next Friday when I will post a new project to inspire you. Have a crafty week

Celebrate 2016

Hi.  I wish  you all a Happy New Year and all the best for 2016 .

I really wish this photo showed the way this card sparkles. I used a gold paper as my base. I then used embossing ink on the Clocks Embossing Plate   and embossed  black cardstock. I put gold sparkly embossing powder on the cardstock and heat embossed it. It really made the clocks look cool. I inked the Pierced Banners  and layered the sentiment Celebrate onto it.

I layered the Pennant Die  in the center and layered the numbers 2016 from the Delicate Lace Script  set.
Well that is it for today but please do join our weekly challenge " Anything Goes "

Poinsettia Step Card

 A warm hello to you.  I want to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas Day and that you have the love of family and friends around you today.

Today I have created a card using one of CLD step card dies. I do love the CLD step card dies as they are a easy and quick bases to make. I have use the A2 Fancy Step Card Kit  for the base of this card. The flourish pattern in  this die makes for a elegant card. The Royal Scandinavian Doily Circle  is very elegant too so I layered it onto the center of the base.

 I featured the Poinsettia 2 in the center cutting it out of the pow paper which glitters so nicely. From the Deer in the Forest  die I used the leaves and flourish part of it to use as filler around the poinsettia. The pow paper is thick enough that the insides of the leaves don't fall out really easy so it gives a nice look that way too instead of always popping them out.

Another die of CLD that I really like is the Pretty Pretty Bows . You get two different sizes and they make perfect bows. This is the smaller sized bow that I have used here.

Well that is it for today. I am so glad you took the time to stop by . We do have our regular weekly challenge going on as usual so if you have the time and want to share your creation I would love to see it.  The theme this week is "Thank You".
 You can join @ for you chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

I hope all your stockings were filled with CLD dies and that you have as much fun creating with them as I do. Merry Christmas and have a wonderful day.

It's Cold Out

A warm hello to you.   I am glad to see you here today.

Here I have embossed the base with the Snowflake Flurries  and then inked over it with purple ink to make the embossing pop even more. I place the Dancing Doily Lace Border  up each side and a couple of pieces of it on the corners of the framed image.

Here the image was layered onto one of the  Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames  . The
 Snowflakes were cut from holographic paper which really shows them off.  The Dandelions I cut in white to make them look like tiny frosty flowers and then tucked them behind the frame. This was a simple card to make but is elegant too with the embossing, dancing doily lace border and the shiny snowflakes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I invite you now to join our  Cheery Lynn Designs  weekly challenge @ for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I do enjoy getting inspired by all who join our challenges.

Have a crafty week
