Daisy Tag

Sandy with you here today filling in for Corina.  I began my project with a manila tag, 6 1/4 x 3 1/8 inches.  I added a background DP piece as well as a brown backer that is about 1/4 inch larger to give a nice finished look to the back.  Next I added the stunning Ambergris Doily; I love how open this die is.  Using Using text weight Cryogen metallic paper, I cut my Daisy Strip die two times.  I added a bit of yellow color to the petals, shaped them with my stylus and then glued the layers together alternating the petals as I went along.  I used the center from my Black Eyed Susan Strip die to create the wonderful orange centers.  I added some Rose Leaves as well as the leaves from the Tea Rose Medium die.   

To create the fancy top, I used the new Curved Border Set of 4.  I have not separated the dies yet and cut them as they come in the package.  Click on the pics above to see the great details on each of these pieces.  Lastly I added Paris Sign #2 on the bottom, I trimmed pieces of the sign off to fit better on my tag.  I added the smaller of the 2 dies in the Love Set.

Amazing Card by Jenny Alia

Hi, it's Jenny here today with a new card.  I don't often make shaped cards and thought I'd give it a try, I thought the round shape nicely complimented the hot air balloon.

The bottom layer is the largest from the Circle Scalloped die set topped by the largest Circle Classic Silver Stackers and then another scalloped circle was added to that cut from design paper.  The two large bottom layers were colored with distress inks.  

I cut the Hot Air Balloons, backed it with the matching angel wing and colored both with distress inks.  The Ships Compass, and Barbed Wire were also colored with distress ink as was the Pierced Banner.  I used foam tape to pop up the banner, balloon and compass dies and for added bling added flat-backed rhinestones to the compass and balloon.  

I cut the Fleur de Lis and used a frantage silver embossing powder on it for an aged look before gluing to the banner.

If Daughters Were Flowers With Lisa Blastick

Hi everyone! 
It's Lisa back this Wednesday sharing a step card made for Cheery Lynn Designs
I was thinking about the challenge this week "anything goes" and I all of the sudden became overwhelmed with so many ideas! Finally, I thought about the Victorian Picket Fence and Garden Gate. I could see it on the front of a step card, but what colors? I was digging and found this fun bright pink papers and it really worked for the look I was hoping to achieve. As I was finishing the card,  I wanted to offset the yellow flowers on the other side, so I used Bird Bath and all the tiny birds to go with it. Love the tiny birds. On the bottom, I used the Grass Border in lime green. 

The Mirror Mirror Doily Frame has been on my wish list for a long time. I was so excited to bring it out for this fun spring/summer card. The Clouds and Rain are one of those diecuts that is a must have in your stash...Ive been using it quite a bit. :) The Daisy Flowers and Flourish Leaves were easy to put together and you will find it easy too.  I added little white pearls in the centers of the flowers for a finished flower. PS...I'm addicted to pearls too... :)

The sentiment was printed out on my computer and I used the inside diecut of the Mirror Mirror Doily Frame and inked the edges in pink. Here you can see the really amazing details of all the beautiful diecuts. Gosh, I always remind myself on how lucky I am to be part of this amazing team!

Air Force Brave by Karen Maldonado

Hi there!  It's Karen here sharing this card I made to celebrate the bravery
and dedication of those men and woman who serve!!
This card features the Air Force  set, but you could also use the dies from
the Marine or Navy sets too!

First, I started by creating a card base using the Square Classic Stacker Nesting,
 and Square Scalloped LG Stacker Nesting dies.

I placed three of the dies that I cut from the Air Force set and placed them
onto the Circle Classic Silver Stacker.  Then, I layered that piece onto the
NEW Pierced Stacker.  Then, I used a few of the tiny stars from the 100 Stars
die set and placed them onto the corners of the Pierced Stacker.

Lastly, I die cut one of the Military Dog Tags with the
sentiment 'brave' and attached it to the Pierced Stacker set!

List of dies used:

Anniversary card by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva and today I am sharing a pretty Anniversary card using gorgeous Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

To create my card base I used Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames and die cut two of the largest dies out of kraft card stock.  I stamped it with a script background stamp.  I die cut a smaller Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames out of white card stock to layer on top of the card base.  Than I die cut the Mirror Mirror Doily Frame out of aqua color card stock and the inside part of it out of white card stock and layered them on top of each other.  

To create the flower I die cut the flower our of the Build a Flower #3 and also used the Embellishments #3 for the inside of the flower and added a yellow pearl in the middle.  I die cut a Leafy Flourish and Olive Branches out of white card stock and using Ranger inks I sponged a little color on, which I did the same on the flower and strategically placed all of them on my doily.  

I die cut one Horizon Fishtail Banners and stamped my sentiment onto it and adhered it onto my doily with the flowers and finally I die cut of the butterflies from the Small Exotic Butterflies #2 out of gold glittered card stock and once again I added it to my doily.

As a final touch I added some white gesso on the edges of my card base.

Here is the list of gorgeous Cheery Lynn Dies I used to create this card:

Documented Card by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, it's Julie here today and I am showcasing some more of the April 2015 New Release with a Masculine feel and hope it inspires you to join in our challenge this week - Make it Manly.

The French Flair Stackers have little piercing holes in them which compliments the new Pierced Banners and Pierced Stackers so well when layering up.

My ink pot I cut in patterned paper and added a little crackle glaze to it adding my feather which was cut out in patterned paper.

I added a little bling to my Fleur de Lis for interest.

I stamped my word Documented with Archival Ink. Notice also how the Lords and Commons Super Doily fits perfectly onto my Pierced Stackers.

Reason I Smile Tag by Corina Finley

Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for joining me, Corina, today on the Cheery Lynn blog. I decide to create a tag this week instead of a card. I hope you like it!

I used the Pierced Stacker #3 to cut the coloured stamped image. I also cut the matte using one size larger stacker die from dark gray cardstock.

The smallest Pierced Banners was cut from light gray cardstock and stamped with my sentiment. I attached the banner to the top right corner with a tiny stapler and trimmed.

The bottom portion was cut using border dies. The Curved Border was cut on an angle, using 2 dies from the set of 4, then highlighted with a black pen. I used one die from the Deutschland Border Set on the very bottom and also used tiny staples to mimic the design. 

Dies used:
I hope you will play along in our weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 185 - Make It ManlyYou could win a $20 shopping spree at the online Cheery Lynn Design Store.

Thanks for joining me today!

Take care,

Dream Card by Jenny Alia

Hi,  it's Jenny here sharing a new card.  I've had a lot going on lately (mostly fun but busy) and I wanted to make a fun, lighthearted card.  I pulled out my alcohol ink markers (Copics and Shin Han), Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, some of my favorite patterned paper colors and started playing.  

The bottom layer is 5 3/4 square piece of patterned paper, topped with a 5 1/2 piece of white paper that I embelished with the Silver Stitching Tool die.  I added another patterned paper on top and cut into it with the next largest size of the stitching tool.  I love the stitched edge this creates.  I then layered the new Pierced Stackers #3, a Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily, and then the top layer is a Silver Stacker from the Oval Classic set.

I cut the smaller Dream word out of the Dream Big Phrase set and glued it to the Paris Signs 4.  The beautiful Whistle a Happy Tune note was cut out of gray paper and sponged with cracked pistachio distress ink.

Last I made the pink flowers using the Small Gardenia, distress inks and a stylus tool to mold them.  I scrunched the flowers up while they were still wet with ink to get a more distressed crinkly look and after it dried I added extra worn lipstick distress ink to the edges with a foam applicator. The blue daisy was made with the Shasta Daisy die.  The edges were sponged with cracked pistachio distress ink and molded with a stylus tool.  I cut the leaves from green paper using the new Leafy Flourish die. Yellow rhinestones were glued to the centers of the pink flowers and a blue pearl was added to the daisy to add sparkle.
