Christams fairy

Sunday Again! Time to check out the new weekly challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs. Lace is the theme.  Thinking Christmas I started the card base by embossing it with the ever so beautiful Poinsettia embossing plate. I ink it up around the edges a bit to really make the poinsettias pop. I then added the Burlap Border. The Anastasia Border I matted with a red cardstock and fussy cut it along the bottom. I mounted the Christmas fairy onto the lacy Kiwi Doily. The Colonial Lamp Post was added to the side of the card. I made the poinsettias from the Poinsettia Strip. So easy to make them with this strip die. The center of the poinsettia is from the Embellishment 2. I place the lacy looking Snowflake 2 behind the one  poinsettia. With the addition of the Holly Corner  and the Holly Lace Flourish it finished the card off nicely. I now invite you to join this weeks" Lace Challenge" for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.  You can also just come relax and browse the blog for more ideas from our new design team .  See you next week.

Nesting Birds

Here we are back for another weekly challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. The theme is
 " Die Cut Flowers". Cheery Lynn has a awesome selection of flower dies and they are so easy to use. I started with a 6x6 designer paper . I fussy cut around the birdhouses so I could tuck the doily in behind as it was similar in shape to the blue design in the paper.   I used the Judy's Blooms and Shasta Daisy  mounted on the  Sophie's  Heart Mini doily to show how beautiful the flowers can be. With a little inking  they look just as if you had gone out and bought them. I also used the Ankara Lace Doily  and the center from the  Polynesian Sails Oval doily  as part of the background. As you can see by previous posts of mine I really love the Birds of the Earth and Sky. They are so realistic with beautiful detail on them. I used  the baby's breath twig from Embellishments #2 and  the Wreath Strip for the birds to sit on. Now it is your turn to create with the Cheery Lynn flowers. Come on over to the Cheery Lynn Challenge and enter your creation for a chance to win a $20.00 Store credit.

Winged Friends

Hello out there. There is another challenge happening this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs that I know all you fans will have fun with. It is "Things With Wings" for our challenge this week. I started with the window as my focal point.  I thought the cloud paper behind the "Window A" looked so cool. The Sophia's Heart Border is so intricate and dainty along the side. I was going to use just the dragonflies from Tiny Things With Wings but then got carried away and gave them some other winged friends like the butterfly from the Mini Butterflies with Angel Wings and  the birds from the new Birds of the Earth and Sky. With a few Mini Fanciful Flourishes and Fanciful Flourish Left  it gave me something to add flowers to as well as a resting place for the birds and the dragonfly. The flowers were from the Embellishments #2  Now it is your turn to play with "Things with Wings". Come to the Cheery Lynn Challenge and enter one of your creations for a chance to win a $20.00 Store Certificate.

Foil Art Card

Hello to all the Cheery Lynn fans out there. Have we got a fun challenge for you this week. "All About Texture" is the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge this week. I choose to use the cool new gears and clock dies to make a manly card. First I embossed foil tape with the Burble/Cheesecloth and Old Parchment texture plates. I then covered the base of my card with it. I also covered some thin chipboard with foil tape and then die cut it with the Gears Mesh Border, Gears and Clock/w Angel Wing. I placed these on top of the foil base to give some added layers. Inka Gold was applied to add metallic color and make the gears and clock  pop. I used the Oval Scalloped Lg Stackers to cut around the truck image and added three metal screws for a little extra. If you click on the card so it enlarges you can really see how nice of texture you get from the Cheery Lynn Texture Plates.This texture challenge was so fun. Come have some fun too and join the Cheery Lynn Challenge for a chance to win $20.00 free product.

Hearts a Glow Wedding Favors

Hi there. Well here I am with another weekly  project for the Cheery Lynn Challenge. The theme is "Hearts a Glow". The theme got me to thinking about weddings. So I decided to use the Scalloped Party Favor Box and worked around it. I used three different cuts from the  Heart to Heart Doily set behind the box as a background. I then added the top of the Hearts and Doves Placecard just above the box which made a beautiful design for a wedding. On the top corner of the heart I placed the Mini Fanciful Flourish along with the sentiment Love. The Two of Hearts doily was place on the front of the box and then the  easy to assemble gardenia from the Gardenia Strip. A few Coffee Eclairs in the box makes this a yummy wedding favor. How beautiful this would look on a wedding table. Please come join the fun with hearts as part of your card for a chance to win a $20.00 certificate. Would love to see your creation. That's it for this week. Be sure to check back next week for a peek at a awesome mans card.
