Cheery Lynn March Blog Hop Featuring IOE Embossing plates!

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Hop!  I am so excited to show you the fabulous new Oval IOE Plates and matching Frame It Embossing Folder.  If you arrived from Debbie's Blog you are on the right track.  If not, you can head back to the blog HERE to start from the beginning.  Comments are appreciated and make sure to stop back and answer the questions on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate.  


I am always so inspired by Cheery Lynn's flower dies, and I decided to use colors from a cosmetic bag I have.  This card uses the new IOE plates.  I just embossed the edges of the IOE plates to get the beautiful scroll corners that I then colored with a little metallic rub on paint.  I really like how this embossing folder adds such an elegant texture and dimension.



If you haven't seen the IOE plates in action yet, check out the Cheery Lynn Designs video HERE and learn more at Tea Paper Crafts.  There are so many combinations that can be made with just the Frame It Embossing Folder and IOE Plates.  The IOE plates can be used with your existing embossing folders - and if you are like me, you have a ton of them.  The possibilities really are endless.



 I cut the Mirror Mirror Doily Frame once out of white card stock and colored the edges with distress ink.  The center of the doily was cut with the coordinating oval so I could used the center as a frame.  The Tea Rose Medium was cut with a peach patterned paper.  The Miniature Roses were colored with glittery blue and bronze spray mists.  The Dandelions were lightly colored with distress ink and tucked behind the roses.  I added black Tiny Fanciful Flourishes which tied in well with the black and white photograph of my grandmother.  I used Frantage Embossing powder on the key and metallic rub on paint on the lock.

Thanks so much for joining us on the hop!  Your next stop is Eva's Blog.  Don't forget to answer the questions on the main blog for a chance to win $20 towards Cheery Lynn Designs goodies!
