Halloween Thank You with Jenny Alia

Hello!  It's Jenny posting today with a Halloween inspired Thank You card.  I've been on a Halloween kick lately since I'm helping plan a large Halloween party at my children's school.  I began by cutting the largest square of the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker.  I glued it to a white 5.5" card that I'd cut down slightly so the scalloped edge of the die cut would show without a backer. I layered a piece of black design paper on top using foam adhesive.  I then used more foam adhesive to secure the orange Felicity Doily to the front of the card.    

The flowers were created using the  Black Eyed Susan Strip die.  I shaped them a little with a stylus and molding mat and curled the orange center with a quilling tool. The leaves are from the Crafty Ann Flourish #13 die.  The leaves were colored lightly with an orange distress ink.  I added some black Dandelions around the flowers too.  I love using these for a little added texture in paper floral arrangements.

I tucked in white Add a flourish flourishes underneath the Felicity Doily and then glued the Thank You # 2 to the center.  I waited until the end to glue the sentiment so it wasn't obscured by the flowers.  Last I added a few black rhinestones randomly to the edges of the card for a little sparkle.

God Bless by Karen Maldonado

Hi there Cheery Lynn friends!  It's Karen here sharing my shaped 
Thanksgiving card with you today!
First, I started by using the L12 French Flair Classic Silver Stacker
 as the frame for the card.
Then, I took the B254 Mesh Border, and ran it through 
the die cut machine (only 1 time).  By doing this, it retained the little tiny pieces 
that typically fall out when you die cut.  After, I cut the border, I placed the same French Flair Stacker right on top of it to create this border that would lie right on top 
of the designer paper card frame piece!

Using the CARA26 God Bless sentiment, 
I die cut and then placed it onto the turkey!

Lastly, I made three flowers using the B307 Sweet William Strip and
  B241 Rose Leaf Strip.   Then, I added some shiny brads 
for the center of the flowers!

List of dies used:

It's "Frame It" for this week's challenge!  Hope 
you come and play along using all of your favorite Cheery Lynn dies
for a chance at winning a $20 shopping spree to the 
Cheery Lynn Designs on-line store!!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there, this is Eva here today sharing a framed card.  I love all of the frames Cheery Lynn Designs has and this week's challenge is all about frames.

To start creating my card I die cut two Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frame out of black card stock.  Than I cut a smaller panel out of a dark pink card stock which I backed up with white card stock and cut the edges off with a small scalloped scissors.

I die cut a Japanese Garden Lace Oval with Angel Wing using black card stock than the Wing out of white card stock.  I also cut out the middle using water color card stock and stamped my images on which I water colored in.  I die cut a Horizon Fishtail Banners out of black card stock and white embossed my sentiment on it.

I die cut Judy's Blooms out of light blue card stock and created my flower and die cut a Rose Leaf Strip out of green card stock and added that to my flower.  Finally I die cut the flourish from the Japanese Garden Lace Oval with Angel Wing using gold glitter card stock.  As I last touch, I stamped  the corners and added some flat pearls.

With Kisses by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, it's JULIE here today hosting the blog. Cheery Lynn do the most wonderful Butterfly dies in many different styles and sizes with Angel wings for perfect layering. So I thought it would be nice to show you all how they can hold centre stage on a card for a wow factor.

I started by matting and layering my stacker dies to give a detailed border with contrasting colours and adding some Copper Stickles around the edge of my centre mat.

My Doily was cut out in Cream Cardstock and shaded with Distress ink, matting onto my Pierced stackers along with my Lords and Commons Super Doily. My Butterfly was heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder and layered onto my Angel Wing Die, finishing off with a few pearls and a Sentiment.

Jingle Bell Stocking Card with Corina Finley


Thank you for joining me! Last week my card was Halloween themed, this week Christmas! A beautiful Holiday Die with glitter and Rhinestones!

My Card started with the awesome A2 Frame dies. I first used the A2 Frames Rectangular Classic dies and then layered the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped die. On top of the Rectangular Scalloped, I layered the Alpine Flourish Doily, another A2 Frames Rectangular Classic die and centered the Pierced Stacker #4. I matted the Pierced Banner on top of the Horizon Fishtail Banner and center on my card.

To create the Jingle Bell Stocking, I applied Be Creative Tape (double sided tape with a backing) to one side of cardstock, placed the die cut face down on top and put thru my die cut machine. I then pulled off the backing, sprinkled glitter and burnished with my finger. I backed with two different pattern papers, added burgundy rhinestones and centered on my card.

You're Amazing! by Jenny Alia

Hello again!  It's Jenny back today with a floral card.  I feel like I haven't made one in a few weeks and I thought it was time.  I wanted to challenge myself and make one without using a doily.  I began with a kraft A2 card base and added a blue Deutschland Boutique Stacker layer on top.  Then I cut a Pierced Stacker 4 and cut out the center using the Alpine Flourish Doily .  I popped that layer up using foam adhesive and then created the flowers.

The flowers and leaves are from the Tea Rose Medium.  I cut them in blue, added blue distress ink to the centers and shaped them with a stylus molding tool.  Dandelions were tucked in behind and I added rhinestone centers to the flowers.  I cut the sentiment You're Amazing and glued two more Dandelions underneath.  Last I added the little butterfly from Tiny Things With Wings die.

Chocolate Nutcrackers With Lisa Blastick

Hello again. It's Lisa back with a new Christmas card using several New July Release diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. Part of my fabulous and generous package from Cheery Lynn Designs I received a Toy Soldier. It is really very detailed but I wasn't  sure on how I wanted to incorporate it onto a Christmas card? 

Well, I started this 21 day fix this week and of course CHOCOLATE is not part of the diet....So naturally, when you don't have something you crave it right? That's how the Chocolate Nutcracker card became my inspiration or is it a craving?. LOL

This is a 5 x 5 inch card and I just used one piece of white cardstock and one piece of 2 sided patterned paper. The brown was on the back of the teal snowflake paper. I diecut 2 "Toy Soldiers" and placed white cardstock behind them. I diecut one "Snowflake Delight 1" in the center and added several pearls. I diecut the smallest "Believe" and added a pearl to the top of the "I"

I also added a few "Wreath Strip" pieces along the sides of the soldiers. 
Here is my inspiration, "Snickers Nutcracker" that my children still love every Christmas!
