It's a Blue Tuesday

If you are hoping to visit with Madame Blueberry today, that's not the kind of blue I meant. I wanted to make a card as a joint effort for another team I am on. A friend of mine, Therese Travis, makes these adorable digi stamps. I figured since Cheery Lynn Designs does not make digi stamps, there is no "conflict of interest" going on here.
The theme I have followed was simple. A one word theme: BLUE.
This actually turned into quite a challenge. I used nothing but the one digi stamp and all other Cheery Lynn Designs products, AND NOTHING ELSE BUT Cheery Lynn products.
Challenging, yes, but fun too!
The way I made my project interesting, is with all the different patterned papers in the BLUE scheme.
Here is Angel Meggie, all decked out with the help of Cherry Lynn Designs dies and other fun stuff.

Here is a close up of the banner above Meggie's head. Can you see those tiny bows, and what, are those glass beads hand sewn to those PRETTY PETAL flowers?

Why yes they are.


I admit, I went a little overboard on this card, and I loved every minute of it!

Here is a close-up of the banner, cut from the PENNANT DIE.

I just kept the inside, fairly simple. The phrase reads, "Friend: One who knows all about you and loves you just the same." Such a true statement.

In the corner are a trio of PRETTY PETAL flowers.
Here's a close-up so you can see their dimension and detail.

I thought you might like to see that I can create things besides just cute VEGGIE TALE things.


On this last picture, before you navigate away from us, look closely at the background papers. I cut the scalloped rectangle using the dies with the same name, SCALLOPED RECTANGLE. Look even more closely, the paper that in under the SCALLOPED RECTANGLE piece, has been pierced with the new PIERCE PLATE. I am having a blast with those and the stitching plates. They make a fabulous look and texture on plain, hum drum cardstock. Lastly, the base of my card(white), is embossed with the BANDANA embossing plate.

That is my BLUE TUESDAY for you. We are only talking about the color and by all means I am not wishing anyone an unhappy, blue kind of day:)
Thanks for visiting us on Cheery Lynn Designs blog today. This has been Jeannie. I'll be back next Tuesday.
The products used in my card today are as follows. All products have the link embedded in their product names.
