Birthday Wishes

Hi peeps, today I'm sharing a birthday card.  I like to have birthday cards handy but never seem to have enough.  I really like blue and green together as a color combination and I found a paper pack that had these colors so I cut stars, added rhinestones and voila, the card was finished.

The Birthday wishes die actually came within a circle but it was so simple to cut out and use by itself, a couple of cuts with my scissors and the die works in two ways.  I love adding versatility to my supplies.

Cheery Lynn Halloween

Hi friends, I'm back today sharing a Halloween card.  Now that's it's gotten so hot here in NY I'm looking forward to autumn weather.  I love Halloween and I've started to see things popping up in online ads and I was inspired to pull out my Halloween dies. 

 Most of the work in this card went to creating the background by blending inks and then spritzing with water until the colors blended.  I also added a spritz of a white dimensional spray.  

To create the grass behind the fence I layered two different grass die cuts.  The fence did was much higher but I cut off the bottom.  It's a beautifully ornate die but I didn't want the fence to overshadow the tree.  The moon was cut out of a platinum colored glitter paper.  Last, I added the bats for spooky vibe.

Cheery Lynn USA

Hi friends!  I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful 4th of July.  I don't make a lot of patriotic cards but being married to an Eagle Scout and having children in Scouts collect patriotic dies.  I thought it was time I put some of them to use.  I do use this star set all the time for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you and just because cards.  I love the pierced detail.

I popped the red square panel up with foam adhesive.  The  USA die cut came from the Military Dog Tags Set. I glued a blue layer over the Proud USA die and then a white layer behind to get the white stars.

Cheery Lynn Hello Paisley

I've been thinking about ways to use this paisley die.  It has amazing detail and can look delicate or fun and bold depending on the colors.   I had a lot of fun switching up the colors and cutting out the edges of the center for added color.  

The centers were adhered with foam adhesive for dimension.  I added little dots of pearl colored paint in some of the holes.  The base card is A2 and white but the main background paper is  light blue.

Cheery Lynn Chevron Seahorses

Hi friends!  I'm back today sharing a new card.  I seem to be making simpler looking cards lately with less layers and I'm always looking for a way to spice them up.  I love the way CAS cards look when done right but I struggle with them.

This card was made by using the Chevron die as a stencil.  I used different colors of ink sponging  gradually from lighter to darker. Then I mounted the frame I cut using the Rectangle Pierce & Cut die. I cut the center out of the rectangle using the next smaller die in the set.  Thank You was cut twice and glued together for a little more substance.  One of the seahorses was mounted with foam tape for dimension.  The shells were cut out of a cream cardstock.  The main design was then glued to a light blue card.

Cheery Lynn Hello Tag

Hello!  I'm back today with a floral tag I made.  I've been experimenting using different colors for leave lately.  I hope you like the result.  I think the vertical stripes give the tag an elongated appearance.  I cut the flowers out of a glitter paper I made with a background stamp and embossing powder.  I used an orange polka dot paper to cut the flourishes.  The tag needed a little more interest and the polka dots complement the ones on the top of the tag.

The flowers were adhered with foam adhesive and blue rhinestones were glued to the centers.
