Happy Turkey Day by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today and I am excited to be sharing another card with you using dies from our latest release. This card measures 8" X 8" to give you an idea of the size.

For my Autumn/Fall foliage I cut out several leaves in White cardstock. I used Distress Sprays on them to get all the different shades. I layered onto corrugated card that had been sprinkled with some Frantage.

My Sunflowers were coloured with Distress inks and micro beads added to the centres.

My hazelnuts I double layered the base area and added a crackle glaze onto the nut area and once dry added a little Distress ink to highlight the cracks.

My berries were also coloured with Distress inks and two layers of Glossy Accents were added letting it dry in between.

I added my doily to the centre and arranged all my foliage and flowers gluing everything in place and finishing with my cute Turkey.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my card. I hope you feel inspired to make a card with  the Autumn/Fall Leaves die and why not incorporate it into our Current Challenge - Doilies Theme. Love to have you join in the fun with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree here at Cheery Lynn Designs.

25th Anniversary by Debbie Brownmiller

Hi there. Glad to see you here . It's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out with you today. There was a die set just release by Cheery Lynn Designs with the Christmas release which I have featured today. It is the Christmas Bell 7 Piece Die Set . I always like to see if I can come up with ideas for using dies aimed for a certain season and make it work for something totally different so it is more versatile. So I took these Christmas bells and used them for this 25th anniversary card.

For this card I used purple and white for my base and then popped and layered the  Historic Barcelona Square Boutique Stackers Frame  onto it. I really think the design in this frame is so elegant for a anniversary card.

Just look at all that beautiful detail in these bells and bow. I cut but didn't pop the pieces out as I wanted more of a embossed look. For another look I could have popped out the pieces and layered another color behind the bells.

Here I have cut the Cherry Blossom Branch Die  in silver to match the bells and 25th and popped it up.

The 25th is cut from the Delicate Lace Script and layered onto the smallest of the Historic Barcelona Square Boutique Stackers Frame . This Delicate Lace Script comes with two dies. One with all the upper case letters and the other die with the lower case letters and numbers. These numbers were the perfect style for this anniversary card.

That is it for this time but I would like to invite you to join the CLD bi-weekly challenge
@ for your chance to win a $20.00 store credit. I always look forward to seeing your creations.

I thank you for visiting the blog today and for the comments you leave. I enjoy hearing what you have to say. Have a wonderful crafty day.

A Friend is Someone Who Knows the Song in Your Heart with Bonnie Garby

Hi friends.  Bonnie here today for Christina.  I'm sharing a card with a somewhat simple design today and using some of my flower stash.  I hope you'll forgive me that the colors in the rose are not an exact match to the rest of the paper.  They seemed much closer in color before the card was assembled....
I've been on a kick trying to use up some of my beautiful artist paper stash and the lovely light blue mulberry paper in the background of this card is another example. 

The gorgeous roses were made using the three sizes of rose die offered by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The roses are my absolute favorite flower dies.  I cut the petals in two different colors, inked the turquoise petals with an old script stamp for some texture and inked the edges.  I shaped the petal with a foam pad and stylus and the handle of an old paint brush and assembled.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

The sentiment is a stamp from Quietfire Design and the bow is made with two colors of blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Don't forget, we have a great Doilies themed challenge going on. We'd love to have you enter for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs.

Vampire with Lisa Blastick

Hi, I'm sharing today with you a super fast clean and simple card using some the the new release from Cheery Lynn Designs. The "vampire" is adorable! It's not a spooky one, so it is great to use for children cards too. The sentiment is from the "witch's skirt". 

The "bat family" I used purple cardstock to match the patterned paper in the background. The "circle" was used to represent a large moon. The pierced holes on the circle gives it a little bit more characteristic.  Minutes to make! Enjoy!

Shabby Chic Bells Christmas Greeting Card by Ginny

Shabby Chic Bells Christmas Greeting Card Cheery Lynn Ginny Nemchak Polly's Paper Studio
Hey there Paper Peeps. Ginny here to share a softly colored and shabby inspired Christmas greeting card created with the fabulous Cheery Lynn Design dies.
Shabby Chic Bells Christmas Greeting Card Cheery Lynn Ginny Nemchak Polly's Paper Studio

 I used the Rectangle Stitch and Cut die to create a background with the wood grain patterned paper then layered on a green and very subtly polka dotted pattern.  These gorgeous flowers were created with the Gardenia Strip and given a little inking and glitter to give them a frosty appearance.  The Christmas Bell was cut from silver cardstock with my very old cutting plate so I could keep the inside pieces from falling out. Once cut I added an additional piece of solid cardstock on the back to secure the pieces and trimmed it out. Once secure I was able add spacers behind the bells for dimension.  To fill out the arrangement I tucked in a sweet little snowflake stamped tag with twine.

The Swedish Spring Oval Frame is a lovely backdrop for the bells and an additional small flower arrangement. I couldn't resist adding a layer of shabby style grey striped paper.

Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Halloween 8x8 Page Layout by Gloria

Hello and good morning Cheery Lynn Fans! My name is Gloria Stengel from Scraps of Life Blog and I am back again with another guest post!

I had a great time creating handmade flowers for my project. I love making my own flowers because I can chose the colors and textures to match my project!
I adore the images in this paper collection, and I wanted to showcase all the purples and greens. I also wanted to participate in the current Cheery Lynn challenge (Challenge #236 - Doilies). I cut the doilies first, just to see how they would fit the 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" size I chose for my project. I cut the French Pastry Doily twice out of textured ivory cardstock. The doilies look better than the "real" doilies you buy in a pack! I love that I can cut them out of any thickness or color of paper!
I used the Small GardeniaMedium RoseFlourish Leaf Stripand Mini Fanciful Flourish dies to create my flower and leaf clusters. I cut all the elements from textured cardstock. I don't think I have ever made flowers from a cardstock with this much texture before! They turned out very well! There is a doily behind those flowers, but I sort of covered it up with the lovely foliage!
I love the detail on the leaves and vines! Perfect for my pumpkin-y page. I added a chipboard number, colored with black ink.   
Thanks for looking! I will be back on August 29th with a new project! 

Remember, the winner of the current challenge will be chosen randomly. They will receive $20 towards shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Wednesday afternoon August 31st at 15:00 Eastern time. We will also showcase the Top 3 picks from our Design Team.

Thinking of You with Bonnie Garby

Hi everyone.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today to share a quick and easy card you can put together rather quickly with beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I had a beautiful piece of purple marbled momi paper in my stash and I didn't want to cover too much of it, so I went with a simple sentiment die and added the dragonfly to the bottom.
For the sentiment, I applied a piece of Stick It Adhesive to the back of a piece of white cardstock and then cut it out.  I peeled the backing off and adhered it to a piece of the momi paper.  Then I layered it on the lavender and dark purple cardstock and added a piece of torn mulberry paper to the bottom.

For the dragonfly, I applied a piece of Stick It Adhesive to a piece of white cardstock and then cut with the dragonfly die so the adhesive would be on the top.  I cut the dragonfly again in grey and cut the wings off.  I adhered the dragonfly body to the center and then I added some white glitter to the wings.

I built the center panel layers as you see and then I added a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon behind the sentiment before I added it to the card front.  I then created a double-layer bow with the same ribbon for the top of the card.  Then adhere the dragonfly to the bottom and you are done.

Doily card by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva, and I am here today with a very girlie card using a pretty doily and flowers and a pretty sentiment.

To start my card I cut an A2 size card out of cream color card stock.  Next I used 3 different panels of patterned paper to create my background with.  I also die cut Border #11  out of black card stock and added it to my card front on top of one of the panels.  Next I die cut the Lilith Doily  out of black card stock and the coordinating Angel Wing Die out of cream card stock and placed it on my card front.  Next I die cut a Circle and stamped my sentiment on it using pink ink and added it to my doily.  

Next I die cut the  Leafy Flourish and Flourish #14 out of water color paper and painted them in.  Next I die cut one of the elements out of the Floral Bouquet Kit using gold glitter card stock.  I die cut the Shasta Daisy 6 Piece Die Set using pink card stock and built my flower.  Finally I added all my flourishes and flower to my card.

Hope you like this sweet card and here are the dies I used to create it with:

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see your creations in our challenge.
