Christmas In July With Lisa Blastick

Hi, It's Lisa here this week sharing with you another new card for Cheery Lynn Designs. It was inspired by this week's challenge "Christmas In July" I really don't think about Christmas this soon, but I think it really is a great idea to get started on those Holiday cards. So now I think I will make a few this month. Hopefully, then I'm not stressed and scrambling last minute. :)

I really wanted to make a big poinsettia using the Rose Strip. I diecut the strip three times and used a small circle for a base then I glued them using the largest to the smallest leaves and added a pearl in the center. There are also green Rose Leaves behind the flower. 

I used Snowflakes Set 2 in two different colors with pearls in the centers and behind the Paris Sign 1 "Happy Holidays" sentiment (layered with two colors) is the Musical Staff Mesh Border. Draping down from the Poinsettia a placed Holly Lace Flourish and I also placed one across the top. 

The christmas trees are a stamp and I fussy cut them out. I added liquid applique and flower soft for snow. The tiny flowers are from Baby's Breath Flower Kit and I also added tiny pearls in the centers.

A Gift For You by Karen Maldonado

Hi Cheery Lynn friends!  It's Karen sharing a lovely gift card with you today!
It can be used for any special occasion.  
This one is for that special coffee or tea lover!

I started by making a 5.5 x 5.5 card based and then layered the designer
paper right on top, and stitched some crazy stitching using my sewing machine.

Then, I die cut the A2 Frames Rectangle Scalloped
along with the Card Maker Rectangle Classic and layered the Scalloped piece 
to the bottom.  Then proceeded by cutting a 1.5 strip of designer paper
 to go across the card.  I tucked the Border Carnivale and layered 
that piece right beneath the strip of paper.

Next, I took the Card Maker Rectangle Classic die and put as the next layer.
The final layer was cutting the B546 Royal Scandinavian Tag 2 and stamping
the sentiment on top, and adding a few pearls!

Finally, I made two sweet distressed flowers using 
the Judy's Bloom &  Leafy Flourish dies, added some seed beads for the centers!
Finished the card off by making a pretty distressed crinkly ribbon! 

Just need to add a gift card inside for that special person!

Christmas card by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva and today even though it's hot in my neck of the woods, I have a Christmas card to share with you.  My card base is a 5.5" square.

I started out with cutting a Nautical Wheeler Doily out of white card stock and layered a panel on top of it.  Than I die cut Pierced Stacker #3 and gold embossed my sentiment on it.  I die cut a Gardenia Strip out of red card stock and created my flower.  I also die cut the fringe from the Black Eyed Susan Strip and created the middle of my flower.  Than I die cut a Chrysanthemum Strip and created two little flowers.  I finally die cut a Rose Leaf Strip and used two of the larger leaves and a Leafy Flourish out of gold glitter card stock and added them to my card.

Hope you enjoy this little card as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Here is the list of the supplies I used to create this card:

Pretty Bows by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, It's Julie here today sharing with you my latest vintage style card.

This photo shows you the start of my layers. You will see I have shaded the edges with Distress Ink and used my Distress tool around the edges of my card for a shabby look.

My Butterfly I used embossing powders on and added a little button onto the centre.

My bow once die cut out I tattered the edges with my Distress Tool adding a little ink to the edges.

My flowers were all shaded with Distress Inks and shaped using my embossing mat, adding little buttons into the centres.

Encouragement Card by Corina Finley

Hello and Happy Friday to you!

I have created this weeks card to showcase the ease of layering with Cheery Lynn Dies. I have used the Pierced Stacker #3A2 Frames Rectangular ScallopedA2 Frames Rectangular Classic and Sentiment Frame #2

Simply cut and stack!

I tried to recreate the flowers from the pattern paper. For the large flower, I cut the Small Gardenia strip flower. I used three layers from the strip die. I inked one layer dark pink, one light pink, trimmed one and also inked lightly with the dark pink. The center of the large flower and yellow flower is from the Tiny Flower Kit.

The foliage for the large flower is cut and trimmed using the Build a Flower set. The small yellow flower center and foliage is hand cut. I added the Add a Flourish to top and bottom to draw your eye to the center.

Dies used:

Pierced Stacker #3 (Set of 6) - XL-21

I hope you will play along in our weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 190 - Anything Goes. You could win a $20 shopping spree at the online Cheery Lynn Design Store.

Thanks for joining me today!

Take care,

One Kind Word by Jenny Alia

Happy Thursday!  It's Jenny here sharing a card inspired by the colors of my design paper.  I cut the leaf paper and before adhering it to an A2 card, I used the Curved Border die to cut the small holes pattern on the right side.  Then I cut a strip of blue paper and glued it on the left side.  It makes the card front look like a book cover and I like the pop of color it adds.

I made the flowers but cutting multiple layers of the Judy's Blooms die.  The centers were colored by blending distress inks.  I then used a spray bottle to spritz the front and back of the flowers before I crinkled the petals and then I let them dry before stacking.  I added green centers cut from the Build a Flower Embellishment #2 die.  The branches were from the same Build a Flower die.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then cut it out with a small Pierced Stacker 4 die.  The shape and pierced edge almost mirrors the subtle design on the right that was cut with the Border die.  I used the Pierced Stacker 4 die as a stencil and colored the center with distress ink and then popped up the sentiment with foam adhesive.

You Are Beautiful With Lisa Blastick

Hi, It's another Wednesday with Lisa. Today, I'm sharing with you a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs. This week challenge is "anything goes" so I thought I would try to make a scenery in the summer. I used a Window, Ivy, Little Flowers, Butterflies, Fence, Grass, Clouds and A Little Bicycle. Whew! 
I haven't made a scenery card before, but I have seen many of them. Giving it a try myself, I can really appreciate all the love that goes into each tiny piece. 

There are 7 sets of red flowers diecut from the "Baby's Breath Flower Kit" I added liquid pearls in the center of the flowers. There are 4 "Ivy Flourishes" 2 layered on each of the top corners. The "Victorian Picket Fence' was cut to fit and 2 layers of "Grass Border" on top. They were also cut to fit the 5 x 6 card. The "Window A" was diecut in white and then glued to Kraft Cardstock. I then cut the window pieces out in a red patterned paper and then in the red cardstock for the windows. The red cardstock was crimped to represent window curtains. I then layered the top of the window with "Dutch Daisy Set" and finished it with a bit of black cardstock cut thin with scalloped scissors. 

The "Little Pink Bicycle" was cut 3 times in red, black and Kraft and layered on top of each other. I added 2 little clouds from "Clouds and Rain" and printed up the title from my computer. The tiniest butterfly from " Mini Dimensional Butterflies" was diecut in black cardstock, I added 5 of them to finish this summer card.

Blessings by Karen Maldonado

Hi there Cheery Lynn friends!  It's Karen here today sharing a shabby
'blessings' card that can be used for several occassions!

To start, I layered, from bottom to top. the  French Pastry Doily
and Circle Classic Silver Stacker.  Then, I took the 
Circle Classic Small Silver Stacker and placed on top of the 
French Flair Little Stacker, and then die cut both pieces at the same time.
This creates an open center, so you can see the background paper
that I used on the bigger Circle Classic Stacker.

Then, I made two flowers using the Black Eyed Susan Strip
along with the leaves from the Frangipani with Leaves die set.  
To the center of each flower, I used the Embellishment #1 set and then
added a shiny and sparkly rhinestone center to each distressed flower!

and die cut one of each and placed behind the flowers.  I distress inked
some crinkly ribbon to match the card colors and finished the card by
distressing the edges!
