Peace by Jenny Alia

 Hello everyone, it's Jenny here today.  I hope you're enjoying the weekend and the extended holiday weekend if you're in the USA.  I was playing with color bursts on paper and instead of using the paper as a background I cut it with this beautiful paisley die.  

It cut so easily even though the paper was a little warped.  I used the same paper to cut the Peace die.  I thought the stitched rectangle worked well with the '60's vibe of the card.  I almost always add glitter or bling to my cards and this one was in need of a little more dimension so I glued purple rhinestones to the edge of the paisley.

Summer Vacation Begins NOW!!

Hi friends.  Wouldn't it be nice if your summer vacation did begin now?  Hopefully it won't be too long until your vacation begins....  

Bonnie here from Make Time to Craft today to share another summer themed card with you.  If you have not yet hopped along in our Summer Themed Blog Hop, it's not too late.  Hop along and comment for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs.
A secluded desert island seems like the perfect vacation spot to me!  I would love to unplug and have a week (or six) with sun and silence..... mmmmmm.
My card started with a 5-1/2" square card base.  I then cut a smaller 4-3/4" square panel which I backed with white mulberry paper and then attached to the card base.  Next was a layer of printed cloud paper slightly smaller and I created an aqua paper using a couple of colors of distress ink to represent my ocean water.

I then cut my 'Message in a Bottle' island die set in two colors of green, brown and kraft and selected the different parts I needed from each color.  I inked the edges of the tree tops and island for more depth.  I stacked the different colors of green for the tops of the trees and then assembled the scene.  My adorable sun was cut in yellow and orange and stacked and adhered to create the layered sun.  I then placed the island in the center of the card over the ocean and added the sun to the top left corner.  

My digital sentiment was cut with the Nesting Doll Tag die and then I added a layer of aqua cardstock leaving a small border.  I added some natural burlap sting to the tag and adhered it to the bottom left corner.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

I finished my card off with a little bow made withe natural, yellow and orange burlap sting from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my card today.  It's time to set aside a few crafty minutes for yourself and create your own summer projects.  Happy crafting!

La Parfumerie by Julie Lavalette

Hi Cheery Lynn fans, its JULIE here and I'm sharing some vintage inspiration on my card today.

My Perfume Bottle die I cut out twice in patterned paper, I coloured in my gold elements with a Promarker. For the main body of the bottle I shaped it on my Embossing Mat to give it some dimension and added small dots of Silicone Glue in between the layers, finishing with a small Cameo from my stash.

My main image on my card was stamped using a Crafty Individuals stamp and Archival Ink which I layered on to my card with a touch of lace and pretty vintage styled flowers adding some Flowersoft into the centres.

To add some extra detail onto my card I added stitching around my floral layer, tattering at the edges and inking. I sprayed the paper in the corner and crushed it in a concertina fashion layering a touch of cheesecloth, lace and my small Doily behind.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all the lovely comments you left on my blog on our Summer Blog Hop.

She is a Happy Soul Always Tag by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovely Cheery Lynn fans.
I hope you are having a wonderful day as we here in Holland are enjoying a day off due to a national holiday. We are planing on making this day as special as can be and we have some nice weather to go with it {almost 30 degrees}
I am so glad that summer is finally kicking in.....for today I would like to share a tag with you using some amazing Prima Marketing papers and dies by Cheery Lynn Designs!

She is a Happy Soul Always: 
This was a fun tag to make.  I am normally more of a soft color person, but this collection is awesome because I really like grey/black and pink together. First I cut out all the elements that I wanted to use on my tag to later on add them to my work.

For my flower centers I used metal embellishments/brads by two different companies. At the end I sprayed two different colors of my Lindy's sprays and added a flair to my tag which is designed by my friend Valerie.

Cheery Lynn Design dies used:
CASO-15 - Nesting Doll Circles #15
DL327 - Mandala Doily 2
B870 - Feathers
B307 - Sweet Williams Strip
SF-3 - Stacker Flower #3
B241 - Rose Leaf Strip

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Have a wonderful day and almost weekend!

Happy Fathers Day by Debbie Brownmiller

A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie back with you from Debbie's Time Out. Today I am sharing a Father's Day card with you.

For the base I embossed a foil paper with the Do it yourself Embossing Plate .  This is a very cool embossing plate to use on men and boy cards.

I then cut and layered the Frame Die  onto the embossed base.

The Frame Die   has these tools, nut, bolts and chain that cut out of the center of the frame. I cut the screwdriver in black and silver so I could layer the black handle part over the silver handle to give it a realistic look. I placed the Sentiment Tag 3 to print the sentiment on and layer the tools on. There is such great detail in all these die cuts which Cheery Lynn is so known for.

Thanks you for visiting the blog today and for all the comments you leave. I always enjoy hearing what you have to say. Have a crafty day my friends.

Dies Used
Do it yourself Embossing Plate - E137
Frame Die - CAFR18
Sentiment Tag 3 3 Piece Die Set - B426

Summer card with Maggi

I used some great dies from Cheery Lynn Designs to make this fun  summer card.  My favorite color is red and I love this Summertime collection from Maja Designs.  

 I love all the flower dies that Cheery Lynn carries but this one, Judy's Blooms, is a favorite.  I stacked 3 blooms and topped with a pearl to make these lovely flowers.  I used patterned and solid papers to cut the blooms, I think that makes an interesting looking bloom!

Be sure and join in our blog hop tomorrow, we'll be showing lots of summer themed projects.  It all starts on the Cheery Lynn blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

Window Shaker Card with Cheryl Walker

Hello everyone, today I have a card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs Dies  using the beautiful new  Shutter Window shaker die kit  from Cheery Lynn, along with the Tea Rose small die. Love these shaker dies from Cheery Lynn as they are super fun and easy to create. Also love how the kit has absolutely everything you need in it to create these fun shakers.

The flowers I chose to use are Cheery Lynn Tea Rose small die.  I cut them out using white card stock, then dusted them with 2 different pinks. Next I added some mini beads for the centers. The leaves were dusted using a green ink from club scrap.

The window was created using some old old Crafty Secrets design paper. Love the pattern for the window. The little flowers for the shaker part were airbrushed using a pink Copic marker.

The sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps called Spencer's Set. I stamped it in black, and then dusted the edges in the same pink as the flowers.

Ribbon is satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and thank you for stopping by!

Hugs to all,

Spring Birthday by Laurie Schmidt

Hi everyone!

 Laurie here from Stamping Up North sharing a Birthday card today. It seems I am always in need of Birthday cards, especially in the spring. Spring makes me think of flowers, so I decided to use the Floral Bouquet Kit for this card. 

I started out with Cheery Lynn's Lattice #2...such a pretty background pattern. I cut it out in black and backed it on some grey paper, adding some pink flowers from the Floral Bouquet die set. The centers have enamel dots, and the leaves are from flourish #13. I stamped a small sentiment on the bottom in black.

I am always amazed at the awesome detail in Cheery Lynn dies!

Here's a list of dies I used for this card:

Lattice #2 CAFR22

Flourish #13 CAFLRS13
