Sept 27th Anything Goes

This weeks Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is "Anything Goes". So I choose to create a baby card. I started with a blue base and layered the Your Dream  frame in white. One of the Circle-Classic LG Stackers Nesting Dies  and one of the the Circle - Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies was layered and  placed in the center then stamped with the sentiment "Its a Boy". The other sentiment is also using a stamp and fussy cutting around it. I then place one of the Pierced Banners and layered the Choo Choo  onto it. This is such a cute train with so much detail. The flowers are the Chrysanthemum and the leaves are the Flourish #13 .   I hope you will come join our challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ Have a crafty week my friends.

A warm hello to you. "Lace" That's the challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs. I started by matting three layers of paper for my base. I cut the Hearts (Set of 4) out of the white cardstock base. I layered the Dancing Doily Lace Border  along the top and bottom.  I cut the Love Tags (Set of 8) and threaded ribbon thru them and strung them along the top. The two flowers on the corners are from the  Sweet Christine . The leaves are from the Tea Rose Small . A few pearls added to the lace border and the card was complete. The hearts and tags are from the Crafty Ann Dies which Cheery Lynn Designs now owns. There is a nice selection of Crafty Ann dies which fits right in with the rest of Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  I invite you to come join our challenge for your chance to win a $20.00  shopping spree. Have a crafty week

Things With Wings

Hi there. This weeks challenge @ Cheery Lynn Designs is "Things With Wings". I really like the Feathered Friends set . It is a set of four bird with beautiful detail to them. So I picked the blue jay from that set to feature on my card. I used distress inks to create a sunset background and then stamped a few branches. I used the Old Barn Board  cut narrow for my fence posts. The Barbed Wire  was then tacked to the posts. The blue jay from the Feathered Friends  was inked and perched on the barbed wire.  A couple of the leaves from the Dimensional Small Leaves #2 were layered in the top corner. A few of the tiny dragonflies from the Tiny Things with Wings  are flying high around the moon.  The new  Grass Border 2  is layered along the bottom.  I invite you now to come join the "Things with Wings" challenge @ Have a crafty week

All About Texture

Hello Today at Cheery Lynn Designs is a new challenge. The theme is "All About texture". I started by folding a piece of black paper and cutting the largest of the Pierced Stacker #3 just a bit above the fold so it makes a beautiful card base. I cut a single one after that and placed it behind the front of the card with it off set at the bottom just a bit for another layer.  I then sprayed it with perfect pearl mist to give it a nice sparkle texture. I then cut the Flourish #10  out of the middle of a piece of thick paper and used it as a stencil with a white pearl paste. It is had to see in the photo but the paste with the flourish really gave it some great texture. After the flourish dried I then tinted it with a touch of green with gelatos. I cut and assembled three of the Bell Flowers and layered onto the flourish. The butterfly is a stamped image colored with gelatos. I stamped the sentiment  and then cut it out with the Pierced Banners (Set of 3). I cut a second banner in black to mat with. A bit of bling and the card was finished. The Flourish and Bell Flowers are crafty Ann dies with are a new line of Cheery Lynn Designs. I invite you to come join our challenge
 @ I would love to see your creation.
