Springtime Layers with Cheery Lynn Designs

No comments:
Greetings and happy Thursday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs today.

I have a creation today inspired by our current challenge theme of Doilies. The color scheme here is a nod toward Spring. I've also featured one of our pretty flower dies, the Black Eyed Susan Strip.

"Thank You"
Coved Rectangle Card for Cheery Lynn Designs by Rhonda Van Ginkel

The base of my card was created using the Coved Rectangle Silver Stacker on the fold of my paper. By placing the fold of my paper just inside of the die, it created my base card shape.

The next layers are the Coved Rectangle Scalloped - LG in a woodgrain paper, followed by the Horizon Boutique Coved Rectangle which is attached with foam dimensional. On top of that, I placed the Alpine Flourish Doily in pink followed by the Coved Rectangle Classic which was also attached with foam dimensionals.

The next layer is cut from the Card Maker Rectangle Classic, with the Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker cut from the interior. On top of this you find the two layers of Horizon Fishtail Banners nested under the Scalloped Circle and Circle Classic dies.

The flower here is the Black Eyed Susan Strip and for the leaves, I chose the Flourish Leaf Strip as well as a few leaves from the Tea Rose Medium. The Sentiment Frame #1 and Add A Flourish along with a few gems completed the card. I adhered a bit of gold string under the sentiment as well.

Forever Loved with Quick Quotes

No comments:
Happy Tuesday to you!

I have a Quick Quotes project featuring the February Club Q kits and one of our all new PowderPuff Chalk Ink colors, Warm Sand to share with you today.

Forever Loved

For this project, the base is a chipboard 12x12 sheet that comes in the kits. I used the envelope pocket here as a focal point for my page. I love that it can be used to hold your private thoughts and journaling. 

Once I had my layers determined, I stamped some textures in a variety of PowderPuff Chalking Inks, Midnight Confessions, Java and Mocha Mama.

The "Forever" chipboard sentiment was inked with Java, then I stamped some filigree pattern on it using our new Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I thought it added a bit of a softness.

The trim included in the kits has such a great texture, I layered it under my sentiment before adhering it with foam dimensional squares.

Focus on Metallic Rub-Ons with BoBunny

No comments:
Saturday greetings to you! I was recently up on the BoBunny Blog with a project to feature one of our newest products, Metallic Rub-Ons, Dies and the Garden Journal collection.

U and Me Scrapbook Page featuring Garden Journal Collection and Foil Rubons from BoBunny by Rhonda Van Ginkel

I was so excited to be assigned the new Silver Filagree Metallic Rubons as a featured item for my project today! I absolutely love rubons and the way they add so much to your page without adding a ton of bulk.  The shimmer of these is simply fantastic!

I used the Love sentiment onto my photo, the Flourishes are to the left of my layers and the Doily on right right corner are from the Filagree Silver Foil pack. 

My layers start with some stamping first using Distressed Textures on my background paper with Licorice Ink. Next is a scalloped rectangle Noteworthy element followed by the Film Tape from Rose Cafe. Next, is a piece of corrugated cardboard that I peeled, then added some Pearlescents in Silver, Blush and Brilliant Blue. While that was drying, I used my Love Stickable Stencils along with Glitter Paste in Sugar. I cut a border from the Elegant Border Die and trimmed to 3 sections long, then layered it under the cardboard and stitched into place.

Using my coordinating 6x6 Garden Journal Paper Pad, I cut the papers using the 4x4 Portrait Frame Dies and adhered the layers to one another. Cut it in half, then adhered to my matted photo from behind. Attached some cheese cloth to my photo layer from behind, then attached foam squares to provide a bit of dimension.

With the remaining section from the border die cut, I folded it in half and glued it together.  I used it as the heart accent in the upper left on the Noteworthy tag banner and added a pearl Jewel to it. A few Blossoms, Jewel Flourishes and a Brad finish the page. 

I hope you get a chance to pick up some of the new Foil Rubons, you will really love the versatility and elegance that they add to your projects.

Layered Doily Dies with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Happy Thursday crafty friends!  It's my day to host the blog over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog today. My project is a square card.

"Hello" (5x5 card)

I love the pretty layers of our doily dies and how they add such a delicate touch to your project. Here I'm showcasing a few of our newer dies, the Royal Scandinavian Doily and the Florence Filigree Doily. The steps that I used to create this card are:
  • To start I used a 5x5 card base in white card stock. 
  • Next I added the square scalloped layer.
  • This was followed by the Royal Scandinavian Doily in light pink card stock. 
  • Then I added the Florence Filigree Doily with foam adhesive for dimension. 
  • I cut a layer using the Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker medium die.
  • The Bird Cage was added on top.


  • Cut the Daisy Strip, misted lightly with water, shaped and formed the layers and adhered.
  • Add the Princess Tree and arrange under the Daisy.
  • Hummingbird was cut next, then cut the wing a second time and attach to behind the bird. Ink edges and attach with foam adhesive for dimension.
  • Final step is to cut the smallest Horizon Fishtail Banner and trim to fit. Add sentiment by stamping or using a rub-on. Shape and attach by tucking under the Daisy.
  • Finishing touches were to add a pearl for an eye on the Hummingbird and gems in the corners of the Royal Scandinavian Doily.
