A Royal Christmas by Julie Lavalette


Hello everyone and a warm welcome to our new followers. It's Julie here hosting the blog today. I have made another Christmas card to showcase the beautiful Snowflake Doily die from our new release. This die blends itself to Christmas and any other occasion depending on what shade of paper you choose. I decided to give it a regal theme so stuck mainly to reds and golds in my card.



I cut my doily out in gold card and offset the angel wing behind in red card stock and added some diamant├ęs around the circumference and mounted my poinsettia flower on the top with a dazzle in the centre.


You will see I cut out my Lattice Valance die in red card and I love the way it frames my card. I also paper pieced in some gold card behind my die cut which helps to make it pop.


I extended my Horizon stacker die, paper piecing behind my doily, you will also notice I used part of the Lattice Valance die across the centre band, adding a Greetings message and stickles around my card to finish.

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and Good luck to everyone entering our weekly challenge and remember you could win $20 to spend here at Cheery Lynn. Next Saturday I will show you all how to make your Snowflake Doily into a square frame.

CHEER UP WITH ANITA KEJRIWAL

I am back again with my wednesday weekly post. I hope you all are really enjoying yourself .
Today I have a quick card that I made and it has again some handmade flowers using the cheery lynn dies.
I cut the sunflower dies three times for each flower and coloured it with copics. Then I shaped it and put some pollens in the centre. The sentiment is stamped on the inverted oval scalloped die and the I used the Italian flourish doily as the base to give a soft lacey effect to the card. The background has been distressed to give a pillow effect followed by some stamping.
Please follow the list of supplies below.

Sunflower DL 121
Rose leaf strip B241

For the Brave



 Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here sharing with you another of the sets in the new release--the Military Dog Tags.  These are fantastic! They come with the ball chain and tags--which when cut with Silver Mirror Card stock look REAL. They have several words with them as well including Hero and USA shown here. I think they are perfect not only for patriotic holidays but also Operation Write Home Any Hero Cards to show how much you appreciate the service men and women protecting our freedoms.

Monochromatic Merry Christmas with Rhonda

Happy Monday crafty friends, it's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

Our new releases are so pretty and had me in the Christmas spirit a bit, so I made a monochromatic holiday card to share with you for today.


The background features a Horizon Square Boutique Stacker layered with a Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker that I threaded some string through and tied a simple bow.


I used a variety of white papers for my project in different finishes and textures for interest. My Snowflake Doily is backed with an Angel Wing cut, then attached with foam squares. The snowflake from the Merry Christmas with Tree Sentiment is cut twice and the 2nd layer is attached at an angle and with a foam square.

Thanks for stopping on over today.  Please join us for our all new challenge "Silver and/or Gold" this week!  You could win a $20 gift certificate to the Cheery Lynn Designs online store just for playing along!!!
