Dreams by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today hosting the blog and today I am sharing inspiration using one of Cheery Lynn's beautiful Cardmaker Dies. These Dies are amazing at forming the background to your card and give a lovely elegant touch.

I started by cutting out my Cardmaker Die and heat Embossing some Stampendous Shabby Blue onto the edges and layering onto my patterned paper.

My centre sentiment was stamped and some Embossing powder added to the edges to help frame it. Next I mounted onto my frame with foam strips.

My bird was shaded with Distress Inks and a Fineliner pen, nesting it along side my foliage and Daisies.

My large Shasta Daisies were shaded with ink and shaped on my Embossing mat. I added a small foam ball to the centres along with a layer of glue and Flower soft into the centres.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Crafty Hugs,

Summer Smile Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovely Cheery Lynn Fans.
For today I have another card to share.  This time it's made with my favorite color {purple}! For my card I used some pretty papers by 49 and Market. I also added a cute fairy with purple shades and flowers around her. For this card I used some of my precious flower dies by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Summer Smile: 
The flower centers are just home decor art stones that I treated with gesso, and some prima waxes. I also made a tear in my card and stitched a thread through after I punched holes in it.

  For my flowers I used some of my all time favorite flowers dies by Cheery Lynn.  The centers of my little flowers are made with some cute bubbles stones I had in my stash. I finished my card by spraying two colors of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on it.

 Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
B338 - Black Eyed Susan Strip
C184 - Judys Blooms
B434 - Sweet Christine
SF-3 - Stacker Flower #3
B574 - Summer {set of 2}
B502 - Smile {set of 2}

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 and lovely weekend!

Just For You by Debbie Brownmiller

Hello, it's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out hosting the blog today.  Today I am doing a quick and simple card for you. 
For a quick card it helps to use a pretty paper for the background to build on. In this case it gave me some beautiful flowers and color to perch the bird on. 
Here I have just cut a bigger oval from the background and then cut a smaller oval from the  Oval Stitch and Cut tool set. I really like the difference the stitching makes around the oval. Then the sentiment Just For You Oval  fit perfectly in the center.
The birds perched in the flowers and on the sentiment are from the Birds of Earth and Sky  set. The butterfly is from the  Tiny Things with Wings  set. So when you need a card fast, this type of card is quick and easy to create. 

Thanks for visiting the blog today and for all the comments you leave. They are always appreciated. Have a crafty day my friends. 

Dies Used

Just For You Oval Die - B784

Cute as a Button With Lisa Blastick

Hi everyone! Welcome back to a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs! I wanted to make a card for a little boy using mostly buttons. I then decided to make it a fun shaker card by using some pierced circles too. It was inspired by a friend who brought her son to work for all of us to oooh and aaah! Adorable baby! 

The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment was printed on the computer. I added some fun shaker beads (red and teal) in the center to match the paper. 

There are pop dots behind the buttons for a 3D effect.

An Inspiration Tag with Maggi

Hi there Cheery Lynn fans, Maggi here today.  Sometimes I like to spread a little cheer with an inspirational card or tag.  I usually choose a tag for my inspirational gifts and I like to attach them to a nice bottle of wine or other fun little gifts, like chocolate.  😊  I used lots of pretty Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts from Graphic 45's  Midnight Masquerade collection to make this tag.  I started by cutting  two different size layers with the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker Frames Die  set as a base for my sentiment card.

You have to have flowers right?  I used the flower dies from the  Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Set to make these colorful pretty blooms.  They're easy to make, just stack several layers of blooms.  Give the petals a twist with your tweezers to give the flower some dimension and body.
Be sure to tuck in some leaves to finish off your floral clusters.  I've used our Tropical Flourish Die to create leafy vines around my flowers.  I love how that looks!  Then top your tag with a pretty bow and you're all set with a delightful tag that's sure to bring a smile to the recipient of your kindness!

Sweet William Card with Cheryl Walker

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all!
Today I have a card created for Cheery Lynn using the beautiful Sweet William Strip Flower die, along with a few other fun dies :)

I started with picking some design paper, and after that I knew what I wanted to do. The Sweet William Flowers are so pretty and I thought they would look perfect cut with the coordinating design paper from this line. I used Crate Paper line for this card. I did distress each flower, and kept them single layers, and added a pearl to the center of each one. Pearls used are 8, 10, 12 mm pearls.

The layers I cut are the Royal Scandinavian Doily die, LPC4 Circle die, Flourish #8 die, and of course the beautiful sweet William Strip die.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Royal Scandinavian Die DL280
LPC4 Circle die,
Flourish 8 die
Sweet William Strip die B307

The ribbon, fabric button, and pearls are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I love how this card turned out, and so glad I pulled some of my older design papers out to use. It's nice to use them up, and it's like having new papers again...hehehhehe
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoyed today's post!
Have a nice day!
hugs to all,

Beach Bum by Laurie Schmidt

Hi everyone!

 Laurie here from Stamping Up North, back with another summer themed card to share.

It's been raining and dreary the last few days up north, so I decided to make a cheerful, sunny card. 

My thoughts drifted to the beach, and I made a little beach scene with the Surfs Up set. I added some sand by using just a small piece of a pierced circle tucked behind the wave. The tiny flower with the cute smile is from the Oval Companion set. I added the Whimsical Sun and Clouds,and backed everything on a pierced circle and scalloped rectangle.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Sunflower Thank You by Jenny Alia

Hi everyone!  It's Jenny here today hosting the blog.  I've been in a summer cardmaking mood lately and I wanted to play with my sunflower die and some new-for-me rust effect paints.  I cut four of the sunflowers adhering the layers together with foam tape.  The black centers were created using a black paint pen.  

Lately I'm using more black in my cards.  I love the striking contrast when using light accent colors. I sponged the flowers with distress ink, painted the petals with a shimmery acrylic and then brushed two colors of rust effect paint on top.  The thank you circle was just cut and colored with distress inks.

Patriotic Card

Hi folks Cherry here at the Cheery Lynn Blog.
I have a patriotic card to share today.  I used some fun patriotic paper scraps to
create a simple Independence Day card.
For my dies I used Patriotic swag 4 piece die set and Pierced Stars 5 piece die set
 and layered them with each other.  I also used some handmade sewn paper fringe.
Other than that, I added a large chunky button and was done.
Well that is it for me today!
