Dream Forever by Julie Lavalette

Hello Cheery Lynn Fans, it's JULIE here today hosting the blog and I am delighted to be sharing some more inspiration from our new Bohemian Collection on my Dream Forever card.

Have you noticed on Cheery Lynn's Stacker Dies you can get Stitched and Pierced details at the edges of these Dies or just left plain. I love all these extra touches of detail and when I looked at the details on my Mandala Doily, Cowboy Boots and Dreamweaver Dies I noticed all the Pierced details so I knew I wanted to use one of the sets of Pierced Stackers. I chose the Coved Rectangles and added an accent from the outer edge of my Mandala Doily at the edges.

My Cowboy Boots were cut out of Kraft Cardstock highlighting all the embossed detail with a Fineliner Pen and a little ink to age them. I layered the swirls and buckles on twice and added a brad onto the boot. Aren't they so cool !

I cut my Mandala Doily out of Kraft Cardstock and paper from Maja Design, layering it on top for contrast. Next I cut out the centre and added my Dreamweaver Die which had also been layered twice. I extended the tassels on my Dreamweaver and hid the joins with my pretty flowers.

I offset the feathers to look as if they are blowing in the wind and added some small feathers that I pulled out of a feather pillow for added texture.

I finished with lots of pearls and a sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you manage to get some creative time  this week.

Crafty Hugs,
Julie x

You Hold The Key To My Heart by Debbie Brownmiller

Hi there. It's Debbie back with you from Debbie's Time Out. Nice to see you visiting the blog today. I have an anniversary coming up this month so with anniversary in mind, I created this card.
I started out by matting a beautiful paper with roses on it onto black cardstock.  Next I cut the Sweetheart Frame  in red and also cut it in the pattern paper. I layered the  red frame onto the center of the card, then layered the center of the frame that I cut in the patterned paper.
I printed the sentiment on the computer, then placed the Horizon Fishtail Banner  over it and cut it out. I then matted it in black cardstock and layered it along the bottom.
Here I have created three Sweet William flowers cut from the pattern paper and put black beads in the center of them. For filler behind the flowers I used the Sweet Williams .
I wanted the card a bit masculine so I choose to use the Hearts 'n Gears .  I layered a key cut from the Lock and Keys  set.

Thanks for visiting the blog today and for the comments you leave. I always enjoy reading your comments. Have a wonderful crafty day my friends.

Easter Baskets With Lisa Blastick

Hi! It's still February but who is ready for Spring! 
Here is Arizona it is been pretty nice, but I watch the weather and it appears that winter is still here almost everywhere else...
So, here is a springtime project you can make pretty easy using lots of 
Cheery Lynn Designs Die Cuts. 
Fun little Easter baskets using "Scalloped Party Favor Box".

I have been checking out the little box for some time now and I finally decided to make baskets with them. I cut the favor box in kraft and then stamped a basket pattern on top with brown ink. The handle is "siena double edge border" and was also cut in kraft paper.

I debated between chocolate bunnies and white "bunnies"? White bunny won...because of the basket color...but there are so many options. Little google eyes are a must for me. I used the smallest flower from "floral bouquet kit" in teal and purple with gala glitz in the centers.

Lastly, 2 sets per basket of the "flourish 13" Love that leaf die cut!

Here is the back of the "favor box" I added some green grass in the centers. 
Candy of your choice! Great gift to pass out...

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!
Hugs Lisa

Maggi Sharing a Sweet Card

Love love love this image from Maja Designs Summertime collection. It is just perfect to dress up with some Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts!

I started with a white card base (4 3/4" x 6") and topped that with a pretty floral print diecut with Royal Scandinavian Boutique Stacker A2 Frame 4 Piece Die Set.  Then I added a pretty dotted scalloped layer cut with A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped 7 Piece Die Set.

Of course for this sweet feminine card, I need flowers so I made a rose with the Medium- Rose 7 Piece Die Set.  I love that die set because it cuts all the pieces you need to make a flower at once.  The larger flower is made with the Judy's Blooms Die.   I cut some flourishes with Flourish #11 Die and tucked pieces of that around my flowers.  I cut a tiny tag for my sentiment using the smallest die from the Pierced Stacker 2 - 6 Piece Die Set.

Then, a cheerful seam binding bow, just sets it all off.

This was really a quick and simple card to make, just diecut a couple layers, stamp and sentiment and make a couple flowers.  Easy peasy!  Thanks for stopping by, we appreciate the time you take to visit with us!

Sweet Bunny Birthday Card with Cheryl Walker

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!!
Today's card was designed for Cheery Lynn Design using the beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs . I wanted my card to have a Spring feel, and this delivers just that :) It was also created for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge this week, to create a Birthday, wedding, baby, or some kind of occasion card. Mine is a Birthday & Spring! hehehe
On my card I used lots of darling dies from Cheery Lynn, and I am loving them all on this one!!! I also used The Project Bin sentiment stamp from the set called "Born Yesterday" this set is all about Birthdays!

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies( brown polka dot) I also added a bow, flower, and viva pearl pen to this cutie
B682 Quadrafoil Tag , cut using the Pink hearts design paper.
LPC4 Circle Pierce set cut out brown card stock, and tree dp from Pebbles
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily, cut out in white card stock and layered on card front
B180 Princess Tree , cut out in green card stock, and matching design paper, and layered. I also added some flowers , and branches to this one.
B216 Wreath Strip used as branches under the tree for a filler

I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out. I love all the layers and colors, it's perfect for a spring birthday!

The tree was super fun to work with, and I will have to do another of this one soon! I love the wreath strip pieces behind it, as it gives some dimension and fills in. I added the little hearts in the design paper, I thought it would be cute. I lastly added some flower embellishments to this!

My Big Bow was created using Really Reasonable Ribbons February Ribbon monthly kit. I also used some RRR for the bunny bow. LOVE how cute this bunny is! All embellishments are also from RRR.

Sewing was done using a very light pink thread and my sewing machine.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think, I truly enjoy reading them!

Hugs to all,

Indie Bouquet by Laurie Schmidt

Hi everyone!

 Laurie here sharing a card I made with some of the dies from the new January release. I'm loving this  Bohemian set. Especially the flowers...they are so fun!

I started out with the rectangle stitch and cut tools, and made 2 inlaid frames. I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added a few sequins for a bit of bling.

The flowers are cut out with the new Indie Bouquet dies, and I added some leaves from the Mehndi Botanical set. 
The foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit, which is a super addition to add to your collection of dies. It goes so well with ANY flower arrangement, and also has 2 flowers that come with it. I'm finding I'm reaching for it all the time, especially now that I have started to make more spring cards. Flowers are so cheerful when snow is still on the ground...it's fun to think about spring!

 I LOVE the detail on the flowers and the leaves, and added some enamel dots to the centers.

Here's the list of Cheery Lynn dies I used:

Floral Bouquet Kit B777
Mehndi Botanicals 2 set  B863

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!

Thinking of You Bee Card by Cherry Nelson

Hi there Cheery Lynn Peeps. Cherry here today at the blog.  I have a cute little card for you today.  I thought if I make enough Spring /Summer cards, the warmer seasons will magically appear.  Isn't that how it works?  
 Isn't this Bee Die cute?  I love him.  I cut him out twice and layered him for a shadow effect.
 I layered him on pattern papers and a Honeycomb Lattice Die.
I added back in a few of the "honeycombs" for fun.  I then added washi tapes and my 'Thinking of You' sentiment that I backed with black to make it pop.  Very easy fun card to create to give to someone special!  Thanks for visiting, Cherry

Blue & Gold by Jenny Alia

Hi crafty friends!  It's Jenny here today sharing a centerpiece project I made using Cheery Lynn dies. All of my school-aged children are in scouting and the big cub scout anniversary dinner blue & gold is typically held around February in our pack.  I am helping out this year by creating centerpieces.  

The theme of this year's dinner is Western and I thought the new Mandela Doily die looked similar to designs I've seen on bandanas.  These centerpieces are essentially card toppers or simple lollipop cards.  I taped skewers to the backs of each and then finished the backs by gluing another piece of card stock, sandwiching the skewer in the middle.  I added sand to the bottoms of mason jars so the skewers would stay positioned in the direction I wanted. 

Before assembling, I used a makeup sponge and distress ink to age the edges with a little ink.  The distressing helped tie the blue and gold colors with the western theme.  After I adhered the skewers to the stars, I thought they'd be great done in pink for a girl's birthday and could double as wands.

With Love 10 Minute Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning everyone. 
Today it's me Amy here to share a simple & easy 10 minute card with you. I only used two colors pink and black to make this card which are great colors to combine. I cut out the XL-2 Square Scalloped in two different sizes and layered a pink square just a little smaller on top of that and lifted it with foam tape.

With Love: 
Then I cut out the cute flowers times two and used seven of them on my middle part of my card {the lower part}. In the centers of those flowers I added a flat back crystal gem in pink and a black silk ribbon just above the flowers. After that I cut out the word love from the Bohemian collection in black and in pink and layered them on top of each other and slightly moved the pink one to the left and also inked the edges of the pink one. Then I used the little word "with" as a rub on to the L of the word love to complete my card.

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Have a wonderful week.....

A Boho Hello by Julie Lavalette

Hello Cheery Lynn fans, it's JULIE here today and I am sharing some inspiration using our amazing new Dies from the Bohemian Collection on my card.

I love this new Hippie Herione, all the added details and size of this die cut make a great impact on any card or scrapbook layout. I cut her out in white card stock colouring her in with Copic Pens and mounted a layer of dark brown cardstock behind her hair for extra shading. I finished her off with feathers, a flower and bling.

My sentiment was layered 3 times with a drop shadow effect, I mounted onto my Pierced Stackers with an accent of my Mandala Doily in White Cardstock.

Adding lots of flowers, leaves and bling to finish my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Crafty Hugs, 
Julie x
