Cheery Lynn Thank You


Hi, it's Jenny here on the blog today.  I decided to challenge myself by creating a card using mostly scraps.  I found the pink and gray papers in my scrap bin along with these flowers and once my colors were set, the card came together.


I trimmed the pink papers and backed them with a black mat before adhering it to a 5.5" card.  The gray circle was a scrap from a Halloween card I made and was already cut using a Cheery Lynn Classic Circle die.  I popped it up with double sided foam tape.  The pin flowers were created using probably my favorite flower dies, the small and large Gardenia's.  The larger one has a fine shimmer from a glitter spray.  The edge of the yellow Tea Rose was dipped in a dark pink ink pad.  
  
To complete and complement the flowers I added white branches and black flourishes.

Cheery Lynn Blessings


Hi, I'm back today with a new card using some of my favorite colors.  The peach color is a little more pink in real life.  I was short on time but a beautiful background die and a good color combination can turn a simple card into a stunning one.


I started with a slightly larger than A2 pink card base and then layered the Lattice #1 die over a piece of aqua card stock.  I then cut the Cherry Blossoms Branch twice.  I was planning on cutting pink flowers to layer on top of the white stems but I decided to double layer them instead, offsetting them.  I thought the card needed more of the pink for balance.


Last I added the Blessings sentiment on the Horizon Fishtail Banner die which was popped up with foam adhesive.

Cheery Lynn Dream




Hello, it's Jenny here from Jen's Paper Obsession hosting the blog today.  I'm sharing a card I made that has a window in the front.  I was planning a shaker card but with everything going on inside the window I decided to keep it simpler.  It does have a raised plastic window though.
 I cut a circle in the piece of designer paper and sandwiched the plastic between that circle and a piece of thin chipboard in which I cut a smaller circle.  I also cut the Dream word out of the same chipboard before painting it with some new sparks paint.  The mushrooms were backed with white paper and I cut the read tops and mounted them on mushrooms cut out of white.  I added all my elements and adhered the layers together with a strong double sided tape.
