Cheery Lynn Thank You

Hi crafty friends!  Welcome to the blog today.  I'm back with another card I made using only three dies.  To create this background I used the Margarita Border die.  I cut it twice out of a soft gray paper, glued it to white card stock and then cut the edges.  The light blue base card is A2 size.  For a little extra punch of color I added a layer of dark gray card stock in between.    

The same dark gray was used to cut out the Thank You Circle which I glued to the Mandela Doily 2.  I popped the doily up using foam tape and then added glitter glue to all the points as well as the outside of the circle.  It's difficult to see in the photos but this card really sparkles.

I hope you like the result and thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Cheey Lynn Let it Snow

 Hello!  I've been wanting to make a distress background to use with this Aspen Forest die for a while and I finally got my supplies out to play.  

 This is similar to another card I made before the holidays but by changing the deer die, colors and details, although it has the same basic layout, it looks very different.  I used silver embossing powder on the Let It Snow die cut to help it stand out.  The Fancy Reindeer was colored with two of the darkest blues I used on the background.

Cheery Lynn 3D Pop-Up Dies Blog Hop!

Hi friends, it's Blog Hop time again and this month we're showcasing new Pop-up dies! There are so many fun projects in this Cheery Lynn Designs Hop, so make sure to click the links below to see them all. If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to the Cheery Lynn blog HERE and start from the beginning. 

I probably love all new dies.  But these are so different and fun to play with.  They are perfect for making any project extra special.  The great thing about them is they can be used to create a pop-up element or with some creative snipping with scissors, as stand alone elements.  I used the Pop Up Happy Birthday Word on both the inside and outside of this card.  A few of these new dies are perfect as bag toppers and place cards for special events too.  

I cut the Pop Up Happy Birthday Word three times.  I used one for the card front, one in the pop-up inside element and one in the dark gray to layer on top of the white inside pop-up for some extra color.  

Thanks so much for joining me here on the hop! Your next stop is Cheryl's Blog. Don't forget to leave a comment on the main Cheery Lynn Designs Blog for a chance to win $20 towards Cheery Lynn Designs goodies!

Cheery Lynn Celebrate!

 Hello and Happy New Year!  It's so cold here in NY and I've been dreaming of sun.  I was planning on using these crocs to create a mardi gras card but my idea just wasn't coming together.  Instead I changed gears and made this.    

The card is an A2 size.  I stamped celebrate and cut it out using the tag die.  The tag was glued to black card stock and the black mat was hand cut.  The tag and the top light blue panel were popped up using foam adhesive to add dimension.  All the die cuts were colored using distress ink.  I added black rhinestones for eyes.

Happy New Year! - Best of 2017

Welcome and Happy New Year!  For the past three years I've created a "Best Of" post featuring twelve projects. I'm continuing the tradition with 12 of my favorite cards and one tag from 2017. You can check out the previous "Best Of" posts from 2016,  2015 and 2014 by clicking the years. 

All these projects exclusively use Cheery Lynn Designs dies. I'm so happy and grateful to be part of the Cheery Lynn Design Team and I look forward to more crafting with these gorgeous dies.

Here's my favorite non-card project from this year!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I wish you and yours a happy and healthy New Year!
