Cheery Lynn Rainbows

Hello!  I'm back today with a card a bit different than my usual style.  I was inspired by Bonnie's card HERE and I thought a rainbow of colors would work well with my new stamp.  I took an assortment of plain colored card stock and cut each with a die from the Curved Border Set.  Then I stacked and glued the colors together, cut the edges and mounted it to a piece of black card stock that was then glued to a white A2 card base.

I cut the stamped sentiment with one of the smaller dies from the A2 Frames Rectangle Classic set and popped the rectangle up with foam adhesive.  Last I thought the card looked a little too plain so I added a couple of clear rhinestones for stars and then added real stars cut using the Pierced Stars die set.  I used the two smallest stars in the set and put them on a magnetic platform so they wouldn't move much when I cut one inside the other to cut the center out of the larger star.

Cheery Lynn You're Super!

Hi, friends!  I wanted to try something different and use these awesome new Action Word dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I began by stamping and coloring an image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  My son handed me the paper and I thought it was my usual card stock but I think it was coated because my alcohol markers seemed to slide on the surface.  I apologize for my poor coloring but it cut beautifully with the Circle Stitch and Cut Tool die though.

I cut the Action Words background with a red patterned paper and the Pow and Bang words with a navy blue card stock.  I cut the Pierced Banner die with the same blue card stock and then stamped and cut the sentiment out of white paper.  The blue patterned paper was cut with the Square Stitch Nesting Set.  This die set doesn't cut the surrounding square which gives you a lot of versatility because you can add multiple lines of stitching on your projects.

Cheery Lynn Celebrate Love

Happy Valentine's Day!   I've been itching to use these Cheery Lynn Design's Fancy Pots on a project so I thought I'd create a garden scene and tie it into Valentine's.  This card could really be used for any occasion.

 I began by roughing up the edges of my design paper and gluing it to a 5.5" square card.  Then I cut and colored the fancy pots.  I rubbed a bit of metallic paint with my finger over the pots.  All the little details really stand out once they are colored with ink.  I glued the pots to different color paper backings and then cut around the edges.  

The pink flowers were made with the Sweet Christine die and the yellow ones were cut with the Embellishment #2 die.  The foliage is a mix of the Ivy Strip and Flourish #13 dies.  I added pearls and rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.

The pots are sitting on the Nautical Wheeler Doily die (one of my all time favorites!).  I added the banner with some twine tied around it, two small hearts from the Two of Hearts set and the Celebrate word to finish off the card.

Cheery Lynn Love Mini Book

Hi, and Happy Superbowl Sunday to everyone watching the big game tonight.  With the changes in the Cheery Lynn challenge (you now have two weeks to enter and can enter up to two projects!) my posting day has also changed. to Sundays   I was inspired by the current Tickled Pink challenge and my pink-loving daughter who wants me to make little books for all her equally pink-loving friends for Valentine's day.  

I started with the mini book die and pink design paper.  You don't need many dies or embellishments with this die because the book is pretty small.  It's perfect for a purse brag book, mini coloring book or note pad. 

The center rectangle is one of the smaller dies in the Fleur de Lis Boutique Stacker A2 Frame set.  The heart is from the Two of Hearts set, the green side accents are from the new Quadrafoil Accents die set and the butterfly is from the Small Exotic Butterflies #1 set.  

Amlost everything was colored with distress ink and I also added stickles on the heart and butterfly wings for sparkle.  I tied the book together using thin twine and glued pearls to the accents and green-yellow rhinestones to the butterfly.

Dies R Us Love

Hi everyone!  I'm sharing a card that posted today at Dies R Us.  The new challenge begins today and the theme is LOVE.  Pop on over and see the wonderful inspiration from my DT teammates, they outdid themselves with some beautiful cards!  

This was a simple card to put together.  I distressed the edge of the patterned card stock with a tonic distressing tool for a vintage look.  The flower, hearts and flourish were colored with distress ink.  All of the dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
