Happy Fathers Day

A warm Hello to you.  Today I am sharing a Father's Day card with you.


For the base I embossed a foil paper with the Do it yourself Embossing Plate .  This is a very cool embossing plate to use on men and boy cards.


I then cut and layered the Frame Die  onto the embossed base.


The Frame Die   has these tools, nut, bolts and chain that cut out of the center of the frame. I cut the screwdriver in black and silver so I could layer the black handle part over the silver handle to give it a realistic look. I placed the Sentiment Tag 3 to print the sentiment on and layer the tools on. There is such great detail in all these die cuts which Cheery Lynn is so known for.

Thanks you for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave. I always enjoy hearing what you have to say. Have a crafty day my friends.

Happy Mothers Day

A warm Hello to you.  I want to wish all you Mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow.  So here is a Mother's Day card that I am sharing with you.


I made a fancy fold card from black cardstock for my base. The back piece I covered with polka dot paper and the front layer of the base I covered with a pattern paper with dress forms on it.


I used the Mirror Die  as a background for my sentiment to be printed on. I then added the corner from the Quadrafoil Tag  under the sentiment. The Dragonfly   was layered onto the top corner.



The flower arrangement was created using the Floral Bouquet Kit Black Eyed Susan Strip  ,Judy's Blooms  and the Embellishment #1 .

Well that is it for this time. Thank You for visiting my blog and for the comments you leave. They are sop appreciated. Have a crafty day my friends.

Penny the Piggy

Hi
A warm Hello to you. For this  card I have gone country. I think Penny the Pig   is so cute so wanted it to be my focal point. But after creating this card I think the gate is as much the focal point as the pig. But they look awesome together.


For the gate I just cut strips of wood grain paper,curved the tops of the slats and layered  them onto black cardstock to create a gate. The Hinges  really finished the gate off to make it so realistic.


The Happy  and Birthday  sentiments fit along the boards perfectly.


Now isn't Penny the Pig   just too cute. I cut the pig from a pattern pink paper and inked the edges. I placed black CS behind the eyes, nose and the word Laugh.  It always makes me smile to see this pig on a card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave. I hope I have inspired you to try creating a country card. Have a crafty day my friends.

Just For You

Glad to see you here. Today I am sharing a card with flowers. To me flowers always make for a beautiful card to give to that someone special.


I started the base of this card by embossing it with the Hearts and Rose Leaves Embossing Plate .
It is always nice to have that extra texture on the base of your cards.


I then layered the Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily  to one side of the card and the Southern Charm Valance Die   at the top and bottom of the card.


The Mini Flourish One  was used as a background for the flowers and leaves.  The flowers are the Chrysanthemum Strip inked up with distress inks for color. The leaves were cut from the Build a Flower #2  and tucked in behind the flowers. A pearl was place in the center of each flower to finish them off .


I cut the sentiment "Just For You" from the Just For You Oval Die  . I then trace the outer edge of the die onto the purple paper and fussy cut it out to place behind the sentiment. The XOXOXO were placed along the bottom of the sentiment.

I would like to Thank You for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. I hope I have inspired you to play with some of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers. They have a huge variety of flower dies to choose from.

Happy Easter


A warm hello to you.  With Easter just over a week away I thought I would share a Easter card with you. I also want to wish you a Happy Easter.


I started by using the Step Card  as my base. I then layered the largest doily of the  Oval Doily Stacker One   stacker die set. I embossed the base of the doily with the Black Eyed Susan's Embossing Plate .


I cut the Daisy Chain Border Die  in green and then cut the flowers from it in a few different colors. I layered it around the edge of the doily. I added a couple of the Tiny Fanciful Flourish Right & Left  to the bottom corners of the step card.


Here I cut the Happy Easter  sentiment in two colors and off set them to give it a shadowed look. The  Spring Basket 1 was layered next and the Easter Bunny  then tucked into the basket. Cherry Lynn Designs does have some cute Easter dies for making Easter cards.

Thank You for visiting my blog today and for the comments you have left on my other posts. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a crafty day my friends.

Fuchsia With Love

Glad to see you here. I hope you are having a great day. Today I am playing with the rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs but creating fuchsia flowers with them.


It is hard to see in the photo but I embossed the base with the  Hearts and Rose Leaves Embossing Plate  . I then layer the Large Sunflower Doily  in the center of the card.


Next I cut two of the Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath   and off set them . I added the Ivy Corner Flourish Die   behind and in front of the wreath. I then tucked in the Whistle a Happy Tune and added the Tags 4 to the corner. I colored the birds and inked up a lot of the other elements.


Now for the beautiful fuchsia. I used two of the Tea Rose medium  petals and cupped them with my stylus. I then off set and layered them together. I used the Tea Rose small for some to make smaller ones.  I used the sepal part of the Large Rose  die and curled it upwards for the top of the fuchsia . The sepals of the medium- Rose  were  used for the smaller fuchsia. A small piece of the medium- Lollipop Fringe Cutie  was used for the stamens of the fuchsia.

I always like when you can get several different uses and looks out of one die. So I was impressed when I could create fuchsia from the rose dies. How cool is that! We just really need to play with our dies and imaginations.

Beautiful Tiger Lily

A warm hello to you today.  Today I am showcasing the beautiful Tiger Lily along with the Paisley Frame and the IOE Vintage View folder from Cheery Lynn Designs.



I started buy using a piece of sparkly gold pow paper as my base. Next I printed the happy birthday sentiment on my computer onto white cardstock. I then embossed the white cardstock using the IOE - Vintage View Embossing Folder and IOE - Square IOE Plates . I cut down the Paisley Frame  to fit between the embossed images. To the raw edge of the paisley frame I added a gold strip to finish it off.


Now for the beautiful Tiger Lily . I cut two of all the pieces of the flower in white. I  inked them with distress ink then shaped and layered them together.  The details in the flower and leaves are so nice. The centers even pop out for more dimension. I added a few black dots with a fine pint pen.  I hope I have inspired you to play with the Tiger Lily dies if you have it.

Hippe Herione

A warm Hello to you today. I am showcasing two of the new dies from Cheery Lynn Designs last release which are  the Hippie Heroine  and the Paisley Frame . I just love the details in these two dies.


I started my card by cutting the Paisley Frame  out. To add color to it I inked it with three different colors of distress inks. It was then layered onto black to really show off the details in this frame. I cut and inked one of the Sentiment Tag 3 and layered the Happy and Birthday onto it.



Now look at the beautiful detail in this Hippie Heroine . I cut her from white cardstock and the layered brown cardstock behind the hair and fussy cut around the hair. I then added some color to the white piece with distress inks. A couple of different brown tones were added to the hair,flesh tones to the face and then some eyeshadow, blush and lipstick was applied. I created a rose from the medium- Rose to put into her hair and used the feathers from the Dream Catchers #1 . A bit of bling was added to finish off the card.
