Borders and Edgers

Borders and Edgers! Yes that is the theme for the Cheery Lynn challenge this week. I started by embossing my base with the Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate.
I then used the Mesh Hearts Horizonal Border placing Alison's Ribbon's along the top and placing the Sweetheart Edger along the bottom of it. It made for a beautiful strip across the center. I then mounted my image on the Oval Scalloped Stacker and the Oval Classic Stacker. A couple of flowers from the Chrysanthemum Strip and the Mini Fanciful Flourish  made a nice arrangement, The Lace Corner Deco J on the corners gives the appearance of another oval layer. Now it is your turn. Come on over to the Cheery Lynn Challenge and join for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Vintage Ladies

Vintage! That's the theme for this weeks challenge over at the Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog. I used Fiona's Mirror to matt the beautiful vintage ladies. I used the Ivy Corner Flourish around the bottom corner. The Shasta Daisy is the bigger flower. The Medium Rose was used for the blue flowers and Embellishments #2 for the tiny rose flowers. A few feathers added to the flower arrangement finished it off nicely.  How vintage is that! Now it is your turn. Join in the Challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. I would love to see your creations.

Feeding The Squirrels

This is a card I created using more of the Cheery Lynn Designs newly released dies. The Snowflake Mesh Border is along the bottom and the Medium Lollipop Fringe Cutie is along the top resembling icicles. The Merry Christmas Pine and Partridge Sentiment with the critters hiding in the Wreath Strip  makes  for a nice focal point. The Birch Tree w Cute Critters was place to one side with the owl and chipmunk from the set up in the tree. The bunny and squirrel along the bottom are also from that set. The cute little girl is feeding the squirrel.  The new Baby's Breath Flower Kit was used behind the bunny. The flower to the right are from the Tiny Flower Kit. These dies are amazing to create with.

Decorated Coffin

A warm hello to all you Cheery Lynn fans out there. As promise I am going to share with you today the altered project that I mentioned in last weeks post. This is it for the Black & Orange challenge starting today.  I Started with a  unfinished wood coffin. I painted it orange and used black and orange pattern paper on the top. For the sides I used the Spider Web Mesh Border along the bottom and  the Lace Light Deco border along the top. I then did a flower arrangement on the top using the mini Fanciful Flourish, Sweet Williams Strip and the Dimensional Sm Leaves #1.  The Fall Pumpkins were added to the flower arrangement. I couldn't resist placing a skeleton inside the coffin. I hope you will join this weeks challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate. Have a crafty week.

Hi Debbie here today to share with you a cool Halloween card that I made for this weeks" Halloween Challenge" at Cheery Lynn Designs. Halloween is always so fun. I used the Mexican Tile Pattern for the aqua background. The Spider Web is tuck in behind the first two layers. All the halloween dies are from the Bundle of 7 Dies. What a great assortment of dies all in one package.  You could make all kinds of great halloween cards with just this one  set of dies. I thought putting the witches hat on the pumpkin really gave him some added character. I even gave the ghost a few eyelashes for character too.  I inked a lot of it up to really make everything pop. Please join us in this "Halloween Challenge" for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Also check out the Inspiration Blog for more ideas from out talented design team. Keep watch back here for next week when I will share with you a very cool altered Halloween project.
