Bling and More Bling

Hello I am back with the "Bing It Up" challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. Bling is always so fun. I used the Square Stackers (rounding the corners) and the Horizon Square Stackers as my base. I then added the Horizon Fishtail Banner across the bottom to match. The flower arrangement was created using the Sweet Christine, Small Gardenia and the Cuties 2 . For filler around the flowers I used Add a Flourish, Rose Leaf Strip and Branches. A couple of Butterflies from the Small Exotic Butterflies #1 1were glittered up. The With and Love sentiments were added to the banner. For added touch I made a beaded pin and stuck in behind the flowers. Then a few pieces of bling here and there really added more sparkle to the card. I hope you will take some time to craft and enter the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 store certificate.

Mother's Day

Glad you came for a visit. We have a new challenge for you over at Cheery Lynn Designs. The theme is "Mothers Day".  This is my take on it. I thought a brick wall background would be the perfect background for the new Bird Bath. I like that you get two sizes of bird baths plus 6 different birds in this dies set. That's a lot of dies in one set.  I then bordered the top and bottom with the  Southern Charm Valance which  is already another favorite of the new releases. The bigger flowers are the new Sweet Christine. The tiny flowers are from the Tiny Flowers Kit and the Baby's Breath Flower Kit. I have some of the new Add a Flourish climbing up the bird bath. And the new Branch I place around the flowers and a couple near the bottom for the birds to perch on.  Well that is it for this week. Please come a play along with us in the Cheery Lynn Design challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 store certificate. Have a crafty week my friends.

Rustic Bird House Tag

Today is the day we have been waiting for. Cheery Lynn Designs has released some wonderful new dies. This rustic birdhouse tag was made with several of the newly released dies. I cut a tag shape with my paper cutter for the base. The Rustic Bird House was used as my focal point. I then used part of the Old Barn Board to make the post for the bird house to sit on. I used the Add a Flourish to climb around the post and bird house. The bird house is just priceless.  I tucked the Mandy Doily in behind it. I then placed part of the Southern Charm Valance along the bottom. A bird from the Bird Bath set is flying in front of the bird house. The flowers were made using the Tea Rose Small, Tea Rose Medium and the Gardenia Small. The leaves are from the tea rose strips and they are so detailed. You may want to stop by and take a peek at the rest of the new dies. All of our design team members have projects to share you using the new dies so check them out @

Keep Time to the Music

A warm welcome to everyone. Glad to see you here for another weekly challenge at Cherry Lynn Designs. The theme this week is "Pretty In Purple". That is my favorite color. I started with a music printed background paper and placed the Musical Staff Mesh Border along the bottom. I then added a corner at the top with two layers of torn paper and the Lace Corner Deco 1 .The square frame I cut from chipboard and stamped some images on it and added glossy accented to it. I printed the sentiment from the computer and put it behind the frame. The Whistle a Happy Tune was layered on the side of the frame. The Pocket Watch was tucked behind the frame. The lace corner , watch numbers and hands were colored with inka-golds. I arranged the Cutie Fringe IV, Small Lollipop Fringe , Black Eyed Susan along with the Rose Leaf Strip in the bottom corner as well as a few rose leaves behind the top corner. I used the Embellishment # 2 for the center of the black eyed susan.  Now it is your turn to share your creations with us. So come and join the Cheery Lynn Challenge and get in on a chance to win a $20.00 store credit. Have a crafty week and I will see you back here next week with another challenge.

Hello all you Cheery Lynn fans. This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn is "Anything Goes". So I decided on steampunk. This is a simple card with only a few dies used. I placed my image and then added the Gear Mesh Border. I tucked the Pocket Watch in behind the border. That is one cool pocket watch. I layer some of the Gears on top of each other . The Hearts and Gears were place at the top of the image. The sentiment Hello finished the card off. It goes to show what you can do with just a few dies. Want to play along? Join the Cheery Lynn challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Have a wonderful week.
