Vintage Noel Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I have a holiday themed card to share with you today created in a more neutral color scheme. The new release has beautiful holiday sentiments and this card features the all new "Noel" die.

"Noel" (A2 size card)

I used one of the Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stackers as part of my base. On top of this, I've adhered two cuts of the Tree Blowing In The Wind and adhered them on the horizontal in position.

The Oval Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker is layered on top of it using Foam Adhesive for dimension.  You'll see that the tree peeks out and creates a framed shape. Noel is cut and adhered next.

To accent the sentiment, I've used our Tea Roses in Medium and Small. Cut a Holly Flourish in neutral paper, then cut it apart to tuck it in among my florals. 

I've misted my flowers with gold shimmer mist. The Lace Corner Deco 2 was cut twice and adhered on the top ad bottom, then accented with pearl gems in a neutral color.

Road Trip with UmWowStudio!

Happy weekend to you!  I have a fun project to share with you that I created for UmWowStudio featuring the new "Souvenir" collection from BoBunny.

I have a confession, I have some favorite chipboard elements and I was hoarding one of them. Do you ever have a piece or two that you just love like that?

We recently took a family vacation and I wanted to grab a few images that my husband shared on FaceBook.

Road Trip!

The View Finder inspired my page, I decided to add some funky pattern paper to back it so it looked like there was film in it. I coated it with Radiant Rain in Pewter.

One of the Layered Arrows was base coated with cream paint and I stamped an ampersand on it. The Confetti Heart was inked with a Cherry Red Ink.

The Christmas Speech Bubble was used to frame one of my elements.

Season's Greetings with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs today.

I have a bit of Christmas inspiration to share with you featuring our new release dies "Season's Greetings Ornament" along with the "Dancing Snow Flurries" accents.

I cut the Season's Greetings Ornament from a cereal box, then colored the design using a paintbrush and some color mists. The green circle layer behind it is cut from corrugated paper. to help the design pop a little I used a Scallop Circle cut from vellum behind it.

The Lilith Doily Edger was cut to create a border strip.  I used it on the bottom under the layers and the little bit that I cut off, was folded over to create a tab at the top.

I adhered the Season's Greetings Ornament to the vellum using small amounts of Glossy Accents. To then attach the vellum to the green corrugate layer, I flipped over the vellum and touched my Glossy Accents again on the larger areas only of the design.  It worked really well.

I took some inspiration from Julie's recent post to distress the edges of my Poinsettia Strip flowers with a touch of gesso. I loved how it gives a bit of a shabby feel to them.  I also misted them and crumpled them before assembling and adding the gesso. Thank you Julie!
