Believe by Karen Maldonado

Hello there Cheery Lynn Designs friends.  Karen here, sharing 
an inspirational card with you today!

Because there's quite a bit of silver shimmer, I wanted to keep
the card simple in nature, but with all the attention toward
the center highlighting three of the newest releases!!

I started by creating a 5.25 x 5.25 card base in heavy silver cardstock.
Then, I layered the silver polka dot paper, and then the blue dictionary paper!

Then, it's all about layering!!  Bottom up, I used the French Pastry Doily
and two of the Pierced Stars dies (one white and one silver layer) for next layers.
Next, I layered the  Peace Dove on top.  Lastly, comes the sentiment Believe.
Note: I intentionally did not poke out the center part of the doily, just for
a different look!  I love using heavy card stock because it really
shows off the beautiful embossing and thicker texture on the die cut!!

To top it off, I die cut four tiny Pierced Stars in silver card stock and
added them to the four corners of the card base.
That's it...simple & clean with focus toward the center layers!!

Butterfly Wishes card by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva here today and I have a very summery card here with full of flowers.  As I thought of what I could create for this week's challenge, well, the first thing popped in my head is the abundance of flowers, so I thought I would create a pretty window scene.

To create my card I first started with an A2 size aqua color card stock and I layered a slightly smaller yellow card stock on top of it and I die cut an A2 Frames rectangle Scalloped using patterned paper.  Than I cut a Window A and I cut around it to cut it out and backed it up with aqua and green card stock to create a backdrop to it. I stamped my sentiment in one of the windows.   I die cut Baby's Breath Flower Kit using red card stock and added it to the top of the window as decorations.  I die cut, shaped and put together all my pretty flowers I listed below and added it to the bottom of the window and added some Ivy Strip.

As a final touch I die cut Mini Butterflies out of gold glittered card stock and added it to my card.

Here are the dies I used to create this card with:

Gingerbread House by Julie Lavalette

Hi Cheery Lynn friends, it's JULIE here today sharing with my card using the adorable new Gingerbread House. This House reminded me of the story Hansel and Gretel and this is where my inspiration for this card came from.

My background was cut out in black card highlighting all the stitches around the edges with a white pen. I sprinkled on some chunky white Embossing Powder and heat set it to give a snowy look. My Icicles were cut out in white cardstock, spray adhesive added onto it and a layer of extra fine glitter.

My Trees and Grass were cut out in green and glitter added in the same way as the Icicles.

My Gingerbread House I cut out twice. My top layer in Kraft card and I shaded it with Copic Pens and used my Fineliner Pen in to all the embossed grooves to highlight it. My underneath layer my die was used to emboss onto white cardstock and I coloured with Copics before adding behind my card. Please check out the Cheery Lynn video HERE on how to do this technique. Finally adding an extra layer of glittered Icicles to my house.

Best Wishes Dove Card With Corina Finley

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today I wanted to share my Anniversary card that I created using the new Peace Dove die from the Cheery Lynn Designs July 15th release!

I started with a layered base from pattern paper and cardstock. I added stitching along the edges of the layers with white thread. Next, I die cut the Royal Scandinavian Doily from black Damask pattern paper.

The Peace Dove was cut from Music note pattern paper. There is so much detail in this Dove, from the feathers on the wings to the delicate detail on the Doves body. So Elegant! I also added two gold circles for rings.

My black embossed sentiment was stamped on to the Royal Scandinavian Tag die cut from white pattern paper.

The Cherry Blossom flower was cut from white pattern paper. I die cut the smallest layer twice and layered them on top of each other. I added a center in gold cardstock from the Embellishment #2 and added a rhinestone to the center. I used the leaf from the Rose and Leaves set and pieces from a Fanciful Flourish tucked into the sides.

Dies used:

Royal Scandinavian Doily (Set of 2)

Gingerbread Christmas with Jenny Alia

Hi, Jenny here today with a Christmas card in July.  It's 90 degrees in NY today but I wanted to play with this adorable Gingerbread Family  die!

The card base is a green A2 card.  I cut a piece of patterned card stock slightly smaller to layer on top. Then I cut three gingerbread people out of a creamy gray paper. I glued white card stock to the backs so the eyes and buttons would look like they were made with white icing.  A little distress ink was sponged around the edges and I added red pearls for buttons and the center of the bow.

The circle was cut with the new Circle Stitch & Cut Tool.  Merry Christmas is a Crafty Ann die, I just love this vintage font!  Cheery Lynn is now carrying all the Crafty Ann dies.  You can see them all HERE.  Last I added the snowflake from the Snowflake Set 2 and glued a sparkly silver embellishment to the center.

Thanks for visting and make sure you link up a card to join in this week's Anything Goes challenge! 

Hugs, Jenny

G'Day Love With Lisa Blastick

G'Day Love! 
It's Lisa back this week with another New Release Diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs!
 It's Kaptain Kangaroo! 
The name of the diecut takes me back to my child time. I remember watching Captain Kangaroo on Saturday mornings. Such a great memory and blast from the past. When I was thinking about what I wanted to make with him, I thought about so many different backgrounds. Suddenly, I thought of one of my favorite movies from years ago, Crocodile Dundee and his love for his country. It then became about love and hearts. I used two of the smaller and one of the largest heart from Two of Hearts. I diecut it in red and Kraft paper and cut the inside of the red out and placed it on top of the Kraft paper. I stamped Love on the bottom corner heart and added little white dots on the edges. 

There are two Ivy Corner Flourishes in opposite corners and in the center behind the Kangaroo is a Priscilla Doily. Love it! Last but not least I added little flowers from Miniature Rose with little pearls in the centers. 

I cut the Kaptain Kangaroo out once in Kraft and one in red cardstock. I used the G'day for the inside and I used white cardstock for his ears and black cardsock for his eyes and colored his nose with a black copic.

Savor the Season by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva.  This week our challenge is Anything Goes, so I thought I would show case one of our newest dies called the Thankful Harvest.

I started my card die cutting two Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames out of Pumpkin color card stock.  I cut a smaller piece of white water color card stock and embossed it using Leaves Textures and using watercolors I created my background and backed it up with black.  Than I die cut a Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily out of black card stock.

I die cut one Thankful Harvest using water color paper and painted it in partially and also cut smaller pieced of colored card stock to fill in some of the areas to build my cornucopia scene and added it on top of the black doily.  Finally I die cut a Pierced Banners and stamped my sentiment on it and tucked it under my cornucopia.

And here are the items I created this card with:
