Have a Magical Night

 Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here with a fun Halloween card with some of my favorite festive dies. I chose dies that would echo the circles in the image. The dots in the Horizon Square Boutique Frame, the Tiny Bubbles Border and the Dots in the Embossing plate all bring focus back to the little frog and his spots!  The bats and Spider Web Mesh Border were both cut from Glitter card stock for that added glitz. A bit of pen stitching on the focus square and some 3 dimensional bats finish off the card. 

Remember there is still time to join the new challenge!!! Challenge #152 is Lace There is a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs. Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Holidays Tag with Rhonda

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

I have a little holiday tag inspiration for you today featuring one of the newer release dies, the Happy Holidays Hanger.

For fun I used a bit of non traditional holiday color scheme.

I used the Scalloped Rectangle die to create my tag base. Next I added the Horizon Coved Rectangle, cut it apart and layered the Swedish Spring Oval Frame in a horizontal position.

You'll see some delicate snowflakes cut from vellum and accented with tiny bling. The Happy Holidays Hanger sentiment in a bright color and the Pretty Pretty Bow finish the design along with some seam binding ribbon and hemp bow.

Vintage Layered Card by Julie Lavalette

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone, Julie here today hosting the blog. This week I thought I would share a vintage style card with you.

I thought I would show you previous layers on my card as it makes it easier to see. The first 2 layers glued onto my card were torn at the edges and some distress added to the edges and I placed my tiny doily onto both sides. My next layer, I die cut out the Horizon Square Frame, distressed the edges and added some creases onto the paper and placed my die cut heart.

My image I glued lace around and added to my Magic Mirror die which I had distressed the edges on and added some gilding wax too.

Layers of different leaves and flourishes were added which I cut out in different coordinating papers. My roses were die cut from white cardstock. I shaded the paper with my Copics before building my roses. Finally adding a few pearls on my card to finish.

Good luck to everyone entering our challenge this week and thanks for stopping by.

Copy Cat Card with Corina Finley

Hello Everyone,

Corina here with you today with a Question!

Do you remember the card below that I posted back on Friday, July 25, 2014? The card was called Christmas in July!

Do you see the similarity between the two cards? The Card "Map" or sketch is the same. A flip of the large flower, another flower instead of the snowflake and created using a different colour palette.

I love how using the same Cheery Lynn Design dies in different colours can create spectacular results! Try doing this with a favourite card of yours!

As you can tell the Fishtail Banners are a favourite of mine! I find them so versatile. I even used pieces from the top of the largest Fishtail banner to tuck under the tears of the pattern paper.

I also mimicked the writing on the pattern paper to my Shasta Daisy flower by stamping on each layer before assembling them. Applied a little ink to the edges and a rhinestone!

So next week I am challenging myself to work with the colour pink.  So make sure to check in next Friday and see what I have come up with!

Dies used:
Shasta Daisy - B310

Sweet Christine - B434

Coved Rectangle - XM-10
Scalloped Coved Rectangle - DL195
Horizon Fishtail Banners (3 Dies) - DL278

Tiny Fanciful Flourish Right & Left (Set of 2) - B387

I hope you will play along in our weekly Challenge 151 - Die Cut FlowersYou could win a $20 shopping spree at the online Cheery Lynn Designs store!

Thanks for joining me today!

Take care,
Corina Finley

Live, Laugh & Create!

HELLO  !!!
My dear friends, I am  Anita with my favourite cheery lynn dies this wednesday. I,m so thrilled because this week we are asking you to play with die cut flowers. Isn't that fabulous !! Now that you all know me, you can very well guess, why this is my favourite, I love playing with wide range of flower dies with Cheery Lynn and here I will show how one single die can be used to create a variety of flowers. Here I have used the Rose die to create two types of blossoms instead of using it to make the rose. And of course , there is the shasta daisy strip die, which I have used to create a zinnia type of flower instead of regular daisy. The point I want to make is that you can use your imagination to make numerous flowers from one single die. Now here is my card, with all the supplies listed below.

Large Rose B155
Shasta Daisy B310
Big leaves from Build a flower #3
Flourish Leaf Strip B178
Heart to Heart Doily DL 106

Happy Fall Y'all!

 Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here with a Autumnal Equinox greeting. Fall is my favorite time of the year...crisp mornings, colorfuln leaves, pumpkins!!! Naturally I wanted to share this fall greeting! I distressed some kraft core card stock and crumpled up the papers. I diecut my leaves and brought out veins with chalks. I layered my sentiment on leaves and a doily and a distressed background. I created a focal flower with the sunflower die and used the fringe strip of the black-eyed susan for the center. Some burlap string and a molded bee embellishment completed the card
