Cheery Lynn USA


Hi friends!  I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful 4th of July.  I don't make a lot of patriotic cards but being married to an Eagle Scout and having children in Scouts collect patriotic dies.  I thought it was time I put some of them to use.  I do use this star set all the time for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you and just because cards.  I love the pierced detail.


I popped the red square panel up with foam adhesive.  The  USA die cut came from the Military Dog Tags Set. I glued a blue layer over the Proud USA die and then a white layer behind to get the white stars.

Cheery Lynn Hello Paisley


I've been thinking about ways to use this paisley die.  It has amazing detail and can look delicate or fun and bold depending on the colors.   I had a lot of fun switching up the colors and cutting out the edges of the center for added color.  


The centers were adhered with foam adhesive for dimension.  I added little dots of pearl colored paint in some of the holes.  The base card is A2 and white but the main background paper is  light blue.

Cheery Lynn Chevron Seahorses


Hi friends!  I'm back today sharing a new card.  I seem to be making simpler looking cards lately with less layers and I'm always looking for a way to spice them up.  I love the way CAS cards look when done right but I struggle with them.


This card was made by using the Chevron die as a stencil.  I used different colors of ink sponging  gradually from lighter to darker. Then I mounted the frame I cut using the Rectangle Pierce & Cut die. I cut the center out of the rectangle using the next smaller die in the set.  Thank You was cut twice and glued together for a little more substance.  One of the seahorses was mounted with foam tape for dimension.  The shells were cut out of a cream cardstock.  The main design was then glued to a light blue card.

Cheery Lynn Hello Tag


Hello!  I'm back today with a floral tag I made.  I've been experimenting using different colors for leave lately.  I hope you like the result.  I think the vertical stripes give the tag an elongated appearance.  I cut the flowers out of a glitter paper I made with a background stamp and embossing powder.  I used an orange polka dot paper to cut the flourishes.  The tag needed a little more interest and the polka dots complement the ones on the top of the tag.

The flowers were adhered with foam adhesive and blue rhinestones were glued to the centers.

Cheery lynn Best Wishes


 Hi friends, I'm back today with a bridal shower card.  It's that time of year again.  I like doing white on white cards, or really cream on white cards for weddings.  I added in a soft blue on this card and I liked the soft look of the color comination.  


The umbrella is raised higher.  I almost always add a little dimension on cards.  Best wishes was cut out of the same blue paper used in the background layer.  The cream card stock has a shimmer to it that doesn't seem to be showing up in the photos.  It adds a little sophistication.

Faith, Hope & Love



 Hi friends!  It's Jenny here with you today on the blog.  I've been inspired lately by all the beautiful spring flowers.  These black eyed susan's usally appear later in the summer but I just love this die.  It always creates a stunning flower.  The centers were rolled between my fingers and I just glued the end.  The centers are probably only half the size of the one in the die but I used a lot of scrap paper to make the flowers and wasn't rolling a whole sheet through at once.  The shorter pieces worked well too.


The base card is a white 5.5inch  square.  I cut black and then cream card stock in 1/4 inch descending intervals to get the layers. The flowers were shaped with a stylus and molding mat.

Cheery Lynn Love



I probably need to reoganize my paper stash but I have been enjoying this aqua, pink and gray combination lately.  I cut the  Lattice #2 die and adhered the white layer with foam adhesive to the gray A2 card.  The flowers are from the Bouquet Set  and I glued pink and yellow cardstock to the back to help make the details stand out.  The main flower was cut with glitter paper. 


I added rhnestone centers for interest and sparkle. I think this would be a fun card to change up with different colors.  I hope you like the result!
