Hello Everyone!!!!!

I am back again with my wednesday weekly post. I hope you all are really enjoying yourself .
Today I have a quick card that I made and it has again some handmade flowers using the cheery lynn dies.
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.
Please follow the list of supplies below.

List of supplies

Sunflower DL 121

Monochromatic Merry Christmas with Rhonda

Happy Monday crafty friends, it's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

Our new releases are so pretty and had me in the Christmas spirit a bit, so I made a monochromatic holiday card to share with you for today.

The background features a Horizon Square Boutique Stacker layered with a Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker that I threaded some string through and tied a simple bow.

I used a variety of white papers for my project in different finishes and textures for interest. My Snowflake Doily is backed with an Angel Wing cut, then attached with foam squares. The snowflake from the Merry Christmas with Tree Sentiment is cut twice and the 2nd layer is attached at an angle and with a foam square.

Merry Christmas my Deer by Julie Lavalette

It's Julie here today hosting the blog. Lovely to have you popping over to see my post today.  I thought I would share over the next few weeks some cards I have made using some of the new dies from the July 2014 release, to give you some ideas for planning, dare I say it.....your Christmas cards.

My icicles were cut out in glitter card and I offset them slightly and layered them twice to give depth to my card.
My frosty trees are the base die from the build a christmas tree die. This die I love as can be used as a decorated tree or bare tree layered up or on its own, also as foliage with your flowers and the decorations as accents on other things. I cut my die out in various shades of card stock and sprayed with an adhesive and dipped into a fine glitter. I glued down the spine of the tree so it would lie flat to the paper and my branches were lifted up to add more dimension.

My window was cut out using the oval die and stamping snowflakes onto the frame. My winter scene was made using inks and embossing powders. To the side of the window you will see my Mistletoe, this was die cut out and glitter applied in the same way as the trees and I also place some liquid pearls onto it to represent the little white berries.

My deer I cut out in brown and white card which I'd applied glitter to and I then layered them together slightly offsetting to give a shadow effect. Finally, adorning my card with snowflakes and more glitter to finish.

Good luck to everyone entering our weekly challenge and I'll see you all next Saturday.

Happiness is a Way of Travel Card!

Have you seen the New Release Dies yet? Well if not, it is a must, there is a great variety to choose from. I love the New Pair of Tickets die from the Release.
The words are an overlay so you can mix and match or leave off if you choose!
It does not matter what theme of card I create, it is not complete without a Cheery Lynn Flower! It is lacking the finishing touch until that flower gets adhered!
New Release Dies used:
Pair of Tickets - B488
Deer in the Forest - B484

Previous Release Dies used:
Little Pink Bicycle - A195
Sweet Christine - B434
Tea Rose Medium - B436
Coved Rectangle - XM-10
Scalloped Coved Rectangle - DL195

I hope you will play along in our weekly Challenge 141 - Beautiful Borders. You could win a $20 shopping spree at the online Cheery Lynn Designs store!
