Cheery Lynn Best Wishes

Hi everyone!  Today I planned my card around this lovely Best Wishes Sentiment Square die that I just picked up on clearance at  Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love these word dies in squares, circles and ovals.  It's so easy to build a card around them and the beautiful font creates a wonderful focal point on projects.

The square fit perfectly in many of the doilies and for this card I used the Dutch Daisy Square Doily.  I used white and blue with a creamy tan thrown in to add to the bridal theme. I used my go-to Floral Bouquet Kit for the leaves.  All of these leaves came from the same set.  The flowers are actually from the Embellishments #3 die set.  Cheery Lynn has such a wide range of flower dies but I wanted to play with something a little different and I liked the light, airy quality these created.

Cheery Lynn Faith Hope Love

Hi everyone!  I'm back with a new card.  I love the font on the Faith Hope & Love Die.  It reminded me of the gorgeous scripts I've seen on blackboard signs so I decided to create my own blackboard look on this card.

I cut two of the Faith Hope & Love sentiments and offset one behind the other for shadowing.  The dark paper is a gray and not black to add a softer contrast.  I cut the Medium Rose out of three different pink papers for a little added interest.  The leaves are from the Mehndi Botanicals 1 Set.  They are so detailed and whimsical.

Hello Owl

Hi Everyone!  I'm back two days in a row to share an autumnal card.  I had so much fun playing with this Whimsical Owl Die.  Because of  his detail it was really easy to cut him out of different colored card stock and then paper piece all the different elements.  Next time I use him I'm definitely going to add patterned papers.  I think he could use a little more flair.  

I added black rhinestones for his eyes and layered the scene behind him layering different colored paper and the Dutch Scallop Square.  The card needed more balance and interest so last I added the Hello form the Bohemian Word Die Set.

Cheery Lynn Valentine

Hi friends,  I'm back today sharing a CAS card using some of my Valentine's dies.  I was in the mood to try something different and for me, this is.  I love the look of Clean & Simple cards but rarely make them in practice.  I love the stitched edge detail and shape of this adorable heart die.

I first cut a heart out using the Be My Valentine Heart die.  I glued a piece of patterned card stock behind the cut out and then cut the heart die  a second time using a darker pink paper.  I cut Love out of glitter paper and then added the silver string to the top.  The silver cord and glittered love added extra interest and balance.

Cheery Lynn Baby It's Cold Outside Blog Hop

Hi friends,  it's Blog Hop time again! There are so many awesome projects in this Cheery Lynn Designs Hop, so make sure to click the links below to see them all.  If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to the Cheery Lynn blog HERE and start from the beginning.  

For this card I layered up.  Since I knew I would be using lots of layers I kept the theme simple. Layering two trees together added a nice 3-D effect.  I wasn't originally planning to use glitter paper for this card but it needed a little sparkle.  The tree by itself is incredibly detailed which will be so fun to decorate on a future card.

Cheery Lynn Witch's Laundry

Hi Everyone!  I'm so in a Halloween mood these days but here in NY it still feels like Summer.  I'd envisioned a very different card with flowers and embellishments and spiderwebs but then I was sidetracked by some new Halloween paper and my new-for-me Witch's Laundry die.  This is the result.

I used distress ink on the edge of the orange paper and then cut out the center with an oval die from the Oval Classic LG Stackers Set to show off the spiderweb paper.   Silver glitter glue was used on the brim of the hat and the neckline of the dress to add a little magic.  I also cut the stockings out of orange, cut out every other orange stripe and glued them onto the black stockings.  The little extra color added so much interest to a simple card.  The sentiment is from the Witch's Skirt Set.  It's a great size for cards and you may have noticed that I tend to use it a lot.

Cheery Lynn Happy Turkey Day

Hi friends!  Jenny here today with another new tag.  I had fun playing with a number of sprays.  The colors muddied a little but I liked the subdued look.  The darker background made it really quick to just gently add a little edge color to leaves from the Fall Leaves Set without coloring the entire leaf.  Leaving the leaves white really shows off the beautiful design on the leaves.  

I've been having so much fun making tags lately.  Sometimes when I feel my mojo slipping I find that switching to another type of project and it somehow re-energizes me.  The last thing I did was add  orange string and twine, both give it a little more texture.
