Cheery Lynn April Release Blog Hop - North America Collection!

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs April Release Blog Hop!  I am so excited to show you the fabulous new North American dies.  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.  Make sure to stop back at the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate.  



This card was so much fun to make.  There is so much inspiring state art on Pinterest to look through and next I hope to make a frame using a few of these dies.  I kept the card simple.  I was thinking of the "I Love NY" song from the old tourist commercials while I was making this.


I wanted to use the large apple from the Best Teacher Ever die set but I wasn't sure how to cover up the wording.  I finally decided to cut a white apple to cover the words and leave a red apple border with the leaf and stem.  I used Prima paper for the maps that were cut with the Pierced Banner dies and the new New York die.  The shading was done with distress inks and a makeup applicator foam.
