Page Layout and Dream Catcher Card using Newly Released Dies





Today is a special day over at Cheery Lynn Designs. Not only is there a " Pretty in Purple Challenge " starting today but also Cheery Lynn Designs is going to be releasing some new dies today. Cheery Lynn has out done themselves once again with some even more awesome dies. You just have to go to Cheery LynnDesigns and take a peek. There is a great selection of new dies.

I have created a page layout as well as a card this week to show how beautiful the new dies really are. For the layout I followed the“Pretty in Purple "Theme. I Cut the pokadot paper to matte my photo. I added the Country Girl Edger up the side and four Felicity Tiny Doily along the top behind the matting . Both were sprayed with goosebumps to give them texture and to make them shine. I used the Felicity Doily With Angel Wing at the bottom right of the photo. I layered the Ambergris Tiny Doily on top of it. I took the Mini Fanciful Flourish Reverse and matched them up with the flourishes on the paper by coloring the flourish part black and glittering the green leaves. Then came the fun part playing with the three new flower strips making these beautiful flowers. They are the Shasta Daisy Strip, Chrysanthemum Strip and the Sweet William Strip. These flower strips are so quick and easy to work with that you will want all three of them. Spraying goosebumps on some of the flowers and inka gold on others finished them off so nicely. The photo of my two beautiful granddaughters was taken with bright pink dresses on and I changed the photo to black and white and made the dresses purple so they matched the layout.I must say it turned out to be a kool photo and fit right in with the layout.

Now for the card I choose a blue base cut from the Covered Scalloped Rectangle. I then layered different sizes of the Coved Scalloped Rectangles and then added the beautiful Dream Catchers # 1. With everything inked up and a few beads added to the dreamcatcher it looked so real. The feathers have such great detail to them too. I tucked the Rum Punch Doily with angel wing in behind the coved scalloped rectangle. The Ivy Corner Flourish was perfect for the bottom left corner while three feathers with beads look great in the top right corner.What better word to add to the card than Dream. All these dies  just amaze me with all the detail. Hope you have enjoyed seeing these new dies used and that it gives you some ideas for using them. Come on over to Cheery Lynn Designs and join us for the challenge. By entering the challenge you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Also through out the week the Cheery Lynn Inspiration Blog  will have more ideas for using the new dies .
