Cheery Lynn Imagine


Hi, it's Jenny here on the blog today.  I've been in a vintage mood lately and this is what I came up with.  I just love the detail on the Chasing Rainbows Doily.  It cut out beautifully for me too.  I love how Cheery Lynn die cuts fall out of the dies so easily.


 I used the second largest die in the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped Die Set  to cut the patterned paper.  I mounted it on kraft paper cut slightly smaller than the A2 card.  The kraft card stock was distressed with ink and the edges were roughed up too.  I glued the Chasing Rainbows Doily and then popped up the old car with foam adhesive after backing it with yellow patterned paper.

The wheel spokes are brown sequins with black rhinestone centers.

Cheery Lynn Ridiculously Amazing


Hi friends!  If you didn't get to check out the Cheery Lynn Blog Hop yesterday there's still time to see all the beautiful projects and join in the fun.  Leave a comment on the hop post on the main Cheery Lynn Blog  for a chance to win $20 to the Cheery Lynn store.


I created this card by making a distress ink background using blue and green shades. After I made the rainbow of colors I sprayed blue and green shimmer spray's over the top.  It may be difficult to see in the photos but the stars really sparkle.  I cut paper to back the colored paper with and then used the Pierced Star dies to cut out the stars on the top.  The star layer is popped up with foam tape for added dimension.

After standing back to look at this I think it could be really fun with hat or shamrock dies and a good luck sentiment.

Cheery Lynn March Blog Hop Featuring IOE Embossing Folders & Plates


Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Hop! I am excited to show you one of the gorgeous new IOE embossing folders in action!   If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track.  If not, you can return to Cheery Lynn's blog HERE and start from the beginning.  Make sure to answer the questions on the Cheery Lynn Blog for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. 


 For the base of this card I used the IOE Hula Flowers  folder.  It has a gorgeous central circle design with floral corner accents and a pretty and versatile border.  I used the corners and circle design.  If you use the coordinating IOE Circle Plates with the IOE folders you can pick and choose which design elements to add or isolate.  There are hundreds of options.  You can see more about these folders in the video HERE.


I embossed the main panel and then rubbed distress ink over the embossed areas with my finger. The card and floral arrangement evolved from my choice of design papers.  I distressed the edges of the papers with ink.  The Thank You Circle is backed with  patterned paper and popped up with foam tape. It's difficult to see in the photos but the central circle design creates a nice ring around the Thank You.  


The Medium Tea Roses were cut three times to create the four roses.  I sprayed a yellow glimmer mist on them and rubbed the edges into a red ink pad.  The whispy red flower was created by stacking two dies from the Build a Flower #1 Set.  The red berries are from the Floral Bouquet Kit.  I colored the berries with distress ink and added a glaze to the berries.  Last I added netting under the Thank You Circle to add texture and glued cream-colored pearls and black rhinestones for extra interest.

Cheery Lynn Hello


Hi, it's Jenny here today with a clean and simple card I created using dies from the January Cheery Lynn release.  I just love these new Indie Bouquet flowers with the cut-out details.  I only used two of the dies but there are many more varieties included with the die.  These flowers can become lacey if layered and alternately look really bold backed with another color.    


 I left the flowers simple but embellished them with a glitter pen and rhinestone centers.  I also stacked the Hello die from the Bohemian Word Die Set.  I cut it three times in the same colors I used for the flowers.  Each time I added a layer I liked the effect more.  It also popped up the word almost as high as the circle which was backed with foam tap for added interest and dimension.

Cheery Lynn Hello


Hi, I'm back today with a new card that uses only a few dies.  I used distress ink to color paper in shades of blue before cutting out the feathers and background.  The hello die from the Bohemian Word Set was covered in frantage gold embossing powder.  


This was a simple and relatively quick card to make but I waited to put it together until the ink dried.  I could have used a heat tool but I tend to cut and then color and I wasn't sure if coloring first and heating would cause the paper to warp so I let it dry naturally.



Even with the variegated color you can really see the gorgeous detail on these leaves.  The leaves were secured to the card with double sided foam tape for added dimension.

Cheery Lynn Blue & Gold


Hi crafty friends!  It's Jenny here today sharing a centerpiece project I made using Cheery Lynn dies. All of my school-aged children are in scouting and the big cub scout anniversary dinner blue & gold is typically held around February in our pack.  I am helping out this year by creating centerpieces.  


The theme of this year's dinner is Western and I thought the new Mandela Doily die looked similar to designs I've seen on bandanas.  These centerpieces are essentially card toppers or simple lollipop cards.  I taped skewers to the backs of each and then finished the backs by gluing another piece of card stock, sandwiching the skewer in the middle.  I added sand to the bottoms of mason jars so the skewers would stay positioned in the direction I wanted. 


Before assembling, I used a makeup sponge and distress ink to age the edges with a little ink.  The distressing helped tie the blue and gold colors with the western theme.  After I adhered the skewers to the stars, I thought they'd be great done in pink for a girl's birthday and could double as wands.

Cheery Lynn Paisley Love


Hi everyone!  Jenny here today sharing a card using dies from Cheery Lynn's latest release.  I cut the white background with the Paisley Frame and adhered a patterned paper to the back.  I then layered that onto pink card stock before affixing it to the front of an A2 sized card.  I cut the paisley backroud down a little so I had room to add the pink layer.

After the background was set, I started assembling flowers.  I used the Mehndi Botanicals #1 set and cut the flowers a few times out of both pink and yellow paper.  The highest flower was also backed by the cute Mandala Doily.  To finish the card off I added the Love  sentiment and light green rhinestones to the flower centers.

This card was quick and simple to create but the intricate Paisley Frame really makes it stand out.  Thanks for stopping by today!
