Love You Card by Eva Dobilas

Hello, this is Eva, hope you had a great weekend!  Are you ready for Valentine's Day?  Well, if not, I have a card to share with you using our gorgeous dies.  So let me show you how I created this card.

I started out by creating an A2 size card base out of black card stock, then I die cut a A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped die out of pink card stock and adhered it to my card base.  Next I die cut a A2 Frames Rectangular Classic die using patterned paper and adhered that on top of my pink scalloped die cut.  Then I die cut a Horizon Fishtail Banners out of another patterned paper and placed that in the middle.  

Then I die cut the bigger of the Two Of Hearts die out of the pink card stock and placed it on top of the banner.  Next I die cut one of the Tags #1 dies using cream card stock and stamped my sentiment on it and added it on top of the heart.  Finally I die cut two Leafy Flourish dies using the smaller design using gold glitter card stock and tucked it under and over the sentiment tag.

Hope you like this happy little card as it's just perfect for Valentine's Day.  Here are the Cheery Lynn Dies I used to create it with:

A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped (Set of 7) - CM-6

Well, that is it for now.  Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you cards playing in this week's challenge!

Love Mini Book by Jenny Alia

Hi, it's Jenny posting on my first Sunday.  With the changes in the Cheery Lynn challenge (you now have two weeks to enter and can enter up to two projects!) my posting day has also changed.   I was inspired by the current Tickled Pink challenge and my pink-loving daughter who wants me to make little books for all her equally pink-loving friends for Valentine's day.  

I started with the mini book die and pink design paper.  You don't need many dies or embellishments with this die because the book is pretty small.  It's perfect for a purse brag book, mini coloring book or note pad. 

The center rectangle is one of the smaller dies in the Fleur de Lis Boutique Stacker A2 Frame set.  The heart is from the Two of Hearts set, the green side accents are from the new Quadrafoil Accents die set and the butterfly is from the Small Exotic Butterflies #1 set.  

Amlost everything was colored with distress ink and I also added stickles on the heart and butterfly wings for sparkle.  I tied the book together using thin twine and glued pearls to the accents and green-yellow rhinestones to the butterfly.

Thanks for visiting and I hope this inspires you to try your own mini book.  Make sure to join in the In Tickled Pink Challenge for a chance to win $20 towards shopping at Cheery Lynn Designs.

With Love from Cupid by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, lovely to have you stop by. It's JULIE here today and I'm sharing some inspiration using the adorable newly released Cupid die.

I started by die cutting out my layers from patterned cardstock, tattering at the edges and adding a little Distress Ink. My frame I cut out an aperture using my square stackers to create a window effect, I then glued on my Scandinavian Heart frame. I placed lace around the centre of my frame and added lots of pearls, mounting onto my card.

My 'Love You' was also shaded with Distress Ink and mounted onto my tattered square frame adding a touch of cheesecloth and finishing with a few more pearls.

My Cupid was shaded with Distress Inks....isn't he so cute !

I mounted my Tea Rose onto my Heart as an extra finishing touch.

Happy Birthday

A warm hello to you. It's Debbie here from Debbie's Time Out. Today I want to share a masculine card with you. It's fun to make special cards for the boys and men in our lives.

I started by making the base using the Step Card Bundle Set .  Cheery Lynn Designs has a few step card dies and they are so quick and easy to make a base with. I layered the old car and the sentiment  Happy and Birthday on the right hand side of the card.

On the taller side of the card I layered the new Windmill .  This windmill will be great for masculine cards or even placed behind flowers as I have done previously.  This was a very quick card to make with just a few dies.

I want to thank you for joining me today and for the comments you leave. Please join our challenge
@ The theme is "Tickled Pink". I would love to see what you create and you would have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Have a crafty week,

You're A Star With Lisa Blastick

Hi everyone, it's Lisa back today with a super quick card using the new release "you're a star" with Cheery Lynn Designs. I kept the card clean and simple and literally it took only a matter of minutes to make for that super sweet boy card for any occasion.

As you can see, I just added more stars from "100 stars" and used the smallest "pierced banner" to print up the word "star". I also added pop dots behind the large star for more dimension.

Fabulous Love Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning everyone.
Today it's my turn to show you what I made with the lovely Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
I am totally hooked on making cards the last couple of weeks but I think it's just a phase I am going through because they take a lot less time to make then layouts do. And since I am on several design teams it makes my life a lot easier. 
For this card I used my most favorite collection "Vintage Autumn Basics" by Maja Design and as I normally take out the girly colors this time I went for the blue colors. 
Because it's almost Valentine's Day, I made a card to go with that theme!

Fabulous Love:
I really love that B368 - Lattice Heart & Vines.  I think it's my favorite die ever made by Cheery Lynn Designs because you can use it for many purposes. You can also cut the vines off and use the heart apart from the vines and the other way around. This time I used the whole die.  
Let's have a closer look:

Be Mine Card by Eva Dobilas

Hi there, this is Eva and since Valentine's Day is around the corner I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you today.

To start creating this card I started out with cutting two Horizon French Flair Boutique Stacker Frames dies using white card stock.  Next I cut a square panel using a patterned paper and added it to my card base.  Next I used one the new dies called Quadrafoil Square Doily out of pink card stock and I cut a white square panel to back up my gorgeous doily to pop the design.

Next I die cut a gorgeous Ornament #9 out of white card stock and inked it up a little bit with green ink.  Then I die cut one of the smaller Two Of Hearts die using pink card stock and finally die cut Sweetheart Candy  and used them as my sentiment for my card.  Finally I added some half pearls on my corners.

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

Quadrafoil Square Doily - DL314

Horizon French Flair Boutique Stacker Frames - DL271

Ornament #9 - CABD-46

Thank you for stopping by hope you visit us soon again to see more pretty inspiration!

Sending Love to You

** Don't forget our Anything Goes themed challenge is still open through February 3rd **

Hello friends.  It's Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft.  I don't get to post too often on the Cheery Lynn Blog, but you can head over and visit my blog for more fabby Cheery Lynn projects.  I've been loving the pink this month and today I have a romantic card with a lacy open card front.
It's no secret that I love the frame dies.  For this card I wanted a partial open card front so I created an A2 top fold card base and positioned my Honeycomb Frame die on the front of the card and ran it through my die cutter.  For this particular die, it only cuts the holes, it does not cut the rectangular outline of the die.  If you have one that does cut around the outside, you can just position your cutting plate so it does not cut that upper line where the top fold is.  To adhere your image panel, you can just adhere it to the front of the card and then cut a panel 1/8" smaller for the backing and all the adhesive will be in between the two pieces.  
I stamped my sentiment on ivory cardstock and used the Pierced Banners dies to cut it out.  This die is dove tailed on one end and square on the other.  If you want the dove-tail on both sides, simply cut it half way, then turn the die around and position it lining up the holes along the sides and cut the other half.  

I topped off my image panel with a simple double-loop bow made with Fantasy Rose Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Sometimes an understated bow is the perfect embellishment.
