Happy, Happy, Happy with Cheery Lynn Designs

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

Today's card features the Pretty Pretty Bows (Set of 2) dies along with the Tags 2 for my sentiment.

"Happy, Happy, Happy" (4x8 Card)

The base of my card is an 8x8 piece of pattern paper, folded in half. I then cut a layer of vellum at 3.75 x 7.75 and adhered in the center. Next, I added a bit of cheesecloth and trimmed to fit the layers.

I trimmed a piece of pattern paper to fit under my Butterflies Flying Among the Vines Mesh Border, then attached by touching some Glossy Accents on the butterflies to secure, then I tacked down the border with a small amount in random areas.

The Francesca border strips were adhered on either side of the Butterflies Border Strip, then trimmed to fit. I used foam squares for some dimension of my center panel.


You could add gems to really dress this up or leave as is for a more gender neutral card.

April New Release for Cheery Lynn Designs!

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps!  It's an exciting day over at the Cheery Lynn Designs store and blog today, the April new release reveal is finally here!!!

My aunt and uncle recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and I thought it would be fun to use their photo along with an assortment of the pretty new dies for my project.

"We Still Do" 8x8 Page

I started by cutting the Southern Charm Valance and Steampunk Corners out of cereal box chipboard. They were coated with white gesso and inked with soft grey chalk ink. The Margarita Border worked nicely as an anchor for the bottom of my page.


The beautiful new Horizon Fishtail Banners make their appearance peeking out from under my Coved Rectangle cut along with a bit of the Double Edge Border. I folded down one corner of my Coved Rectangle for interest and texture, then stitched a few various places.


The Beautiful Bell Doily peeks out from my photo along with the very elegant new Add a Flourish. I've used the new Branches tucked in here and there.  The flowers here are all brand new too! Tea Rose Small and Medium are anchored on either side of the bottom. Sweet Christine's are smaller and darker papers with pearls in the centers. Gardenia Small is on the upper right.

Decorative trim was placed on the upper right corner of the page using one of our new Arrows, on top of some Double Scalloped Border which was trimmed and scraps from one of my Horizon Fishtail Banners.

These new dies are simply fantastic, be sure to visit the blog to see some fantastic inspiration featuring more of our new dies!!!

Simplistic Elegance with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday crafty friends!  It's my day to share a project over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Today I have a shaped card to share with you featuring one of my favorite stacker dies, the Coved Rectangles shape. I layered them to create a frame with a pretty scalloped edge for contrast.


The focal point for my card is the lovely Exotic Butterfly Large #1 which is attached with dimensional foam squares. Beneath it is the Heartland America Large heart shaped doily die with the relief pieces removed. This framed in my sentiment. 

Some details...

I typically like to use a strong variety of dies on my projects, but today I wanted to share a more simple design that is still very elegant, yet easy to put together.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
Coved Rectangle Classic- XL-10
Scalloped Coved Rectangle - XL-11
Coved Rectangle Classic Silver Stackers - L10
Exotic Butterfly Large #1 - DL117

April Club Q!

Happy Wednesday to you!

It's my day to host the blog over at Quick Quotes and share an April Club Q project which features the Altered kit and our all new Calypso collection.


The April Club Q - Altered Kit features this fun tag chipboard! You can use it to build a mini album or create individual gifts as well.



Designer's Tip:

I cut my sticker banner flag in teal and using the bottom cut piece from the sticker, created additional sticker flags to layer under my "You are amazing" sentiment.  It's fun to get more mileage from your embellishments this way.

Ribbon

Other:  Sewing Machine and Thread
