Winter Card

 Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here with a winter card using the Birch Tree and the Fancy Deer. I began by making an embossed snowflake background with a piece of vellum. I layered snowflakes and fancy deer with torn pieces of "snow". I created depth by using foam tape. I added "shimmer" to the snow background with pan pastel. A bit of "snow" in the front and on the branches collected as glitter. My focal panel was mounted onto a matte with a bit of Snowflake Mesh Border. A bunny from the Birch Tree set and a wee Hello finish off the card.

Remember there is still time to join the new challenge!!! Challenge #150 is Things with Wings There is a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs. Thank you for stopping by today!

Patriotic Page with Rhonda

Greetings and welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs blog!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog.

I made a patriotic page today featuring a photo of Mt. Rushmore that I took when we were on vacation this summer. There was something so patriotic and majestic about seeing the monument in person.

I started with an 8x8 piece of white cardstock and used Fancy Corners #4 on the corners. Next, I used the Scalloped Rectangle and aligned it to cut a 7x7" square. (This is one of the Reflections Boutique dies.) At the top I used a Victorian Romance Flourish as a hanger type of element in between my layers. Lace Heart Square is next.

I had some pieces left from my project last week, so you will see the Foliage Embossed white cardstock and French Lattice on top, tucked under the Southern Charm Valance on the right.

To anchor my photo I used the Polynesian Sails Oval, then layered a medium Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker with foam squares. The photo is then attached with foam squares. This gives me a lot of area to layer my cuts. On the bottom you'll see a snip of Sophia's Heart Border, another piece left over from a previous project. 

Layered on the right are the Quills and a Wheat cluster, topped with the Star and Birds of Earth and Sky. To the left of that is a Branch. There are Cloud cuts layered under the photo and one attached with foam squares. 

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies Used:
Fancy Corner Cuts #4 - B431
Scalloped Rectangle - DL199
Lace Square Heart - DL189
Polynesian Sails Oval - DL153

Brr It's Cold Outside by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's Julie here hosting the blog today. The challenge this week is - All About Texture so I decided to join in using my Cheery Lynn Texture Plate.

I used the brick plate and ran some co-ordinations paper through my die cutting machine and then sanded it back to reveal the coloured core. Next I die cut this piece of paper and sprayed some glue onto it and added extra fine glitter for a frosty feel.

My tree I layered up and sprayed with some gold mica spray and dried with my heat gun. This helps to curl the paper and gives it a firmer feel. I added Flower-soft snow, glitter, red stickles, my little birds and snowflakes all to give a winter feel. The Tree comes with some wonderful decorations dies also and you can see it decorated here on one of my previous cards.

My window I wanted a frosty feel to, so I added some icicles....I adore this die. They we're die cut in white card with a little distress added to the points of them, I then sprayed glue and added glitter too them and placed onto my window frame with a little snow. I also made some curtains for behind my window using my Cuties strip die.

My wording I layered up twice for a shadow effect. I wish you could see all the sparkle on this card but the camera has unfortunately only picked up a bit of it.

Celebrate Fall Card with Corina Finley

Hello Everyone!

Corina here with you on this cold September day! I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada and it is 100% Fall here. There was so much frost on the grass yesterday morning that my three year old started yelling "Momma, it snowed!"

To celebrate my favourite time of year - I decided to create a Fall themed card using both sets of the Small Leaves, I used the Fall Leaf Doily as a base for my Leaf arrangement. |I added burlap, twine and Cheery Lynn's Wheat Heads through out.

Above is a close up of my Leaf Arrangement. Using the same technique as I used last week - I first took my ink pad (Gathered Twig) and gently tapped on to the leaf dies. Making sure that I only applied ink on to the top of the ridges - image/pattern part. I then ran it through my Big Shot.

Voila, my leaves have so much more depth to them!

Dies Used:

I hope you will play along in this weeks Challenge - All about Texture. You could win a $20 shopping spree at the online Cheery Lynn Designs store!

Thanks for joining me today!

Take care,

Live, Laugh & Create.

Hello friends,

How is everyone doing?  I wanted to try something that went along with our current challenge i.e adding texture to cardstock. Now Cheery Lynn has some amazing embossing plates with just wonderful designs and you get such lovely textures on your card stock. I have tried one here today and one of the main reasons I kept my card simple was to highlight the texture part. I did not make it too heavy with flowers but kept all embellishments minimum.  I have added some glitter to the sentiments die cut and these days , I am going crazy with glitters. I have used the Stacker dies and layered them together. The flowers are simple and sweet.

List of supplies

Inks-Distress inks-old paper and evergreen bough
glitter and ribbon from stash
Do check out the current challenge which is all about texture. So get going to win some awesome prizes.
