Hello friends,
I ,m back again with my weekly Wednesday project. And this week I have a totally different project for you....something that is not my style but I am so much in awe of these cards that I could not save myself from making one. This project does not have handmade flowers. Here the focus is mainly on the clever use of die cuts. Here I have manipulated the die cuts to give a different look to this card. And the base is the favourite stacker dies one top of other to give a 3d look. I have cut the Fiona's magic mirror to place it on the top and bottom. The two flourishes are place on either side and I have again cut the doily into two and used as a mat for the stamped image.


Stamp is from penny black
Distress inks

 This week we have a summer theme challenge at the cheery Lynn blog. Do stop by over there for a moment.
I hope you liked my work. Will see you again next week. Till then ......goodbye!!

A Holiday Card with Rhonda

Greetings and happy Monday, it's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

I created a holiday card featuring the Rustic Birdhouse die for my post today. The background includes the Card Maker Scalloped Rectangle, then the Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker.

I placed the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker in a horizontal position, then took the doily that was cut from the center of our Dutch Scallop Square. This was cut in half and glued behind.  This layer was adhered with foam squares for dimension.

A bit of cheese cloth was adhered behind the Rustic Birdhouse, then Branches were added on the left in different colors and under my bird. I tied a bit of string and made a bow to finish it. A small part of a Francesca border was cut and adhered below the house. Two of the Steampunk Corners were added to anchor the base.

A Royal Christmas by Julie Lavalette

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to our new followers. It's Julie here hosting the blog today. I have made another Christmas card to showcase the beautiful Snowflake Doily die from our new release. This die blends itself to Christmas and any other occasion depending on what shade of paper you choose. I decided to give it a regal theme so stuck mainly to reds and golds in my card.

I cut my doily out in gold card and offset the angel wing behind in red card stock and added some diamant├ęs around the circumference and mounted my poinsettia flower on the top with a dazzle in the centre.

You will see I cut out my Lattice Valance die in red card and I love the way it frames my card. I also paper pieced in some gold card behind my die cut which helps to make it pop.

I extended my Horizon stacker die, paper piecing behind my doily, you will also notice I used part of the Lattice Valance die across the centre band, adding a Greetings message and stickles around my card to finish.

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and Good luck to everyone entering our weekly challenge and remember you could win $20 to spend here at Cheery Lynn. Next Saturday I will show you all how to make your Snowflake Doily into a square frame.

I cut the sunflower dies three times for each flower and coloured it with copics. Then I shaped it and put some pollens in the centre. The sentiment is stamped on the inverted oval scalloped die and the I used the Italian flourish doily as the base to give a soft lacey effect to the card. The background has been distressed to give a pillow effect followed by some stamping.

For the Brave

 Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here sharing with you another of the sets in the new release--the Military Dog Tags.  These are fantastic! They come with the ball chain and tags--which when cut with Silver Mirror Card stock look REAL. They have several words with them as well including Hero and USA shown here. I think they are perfect not only for patriotic holidays but also Operation Write Home Any Hero Cards to show how much you appreciate the service men and women protecting our freedoms.
