Repetition

Happy Monday Cheery Lynn Designs blog readers!! It's Tanisha here with a quick post to show you how to use repetition to make some of the smaller dies that Cheery Lynn Designs offers really stand out on your projects.

I used 3 die cut apples to create this A+ Teacher card. Of course the apples could be swapped out using any number of our dies...like the Clover for a good luck card or the Jack-O-Lantern to create a Halloween card, for instance.

I created texture on the front panel of this card by embossing it with the Burlap plate and embossing pad and then finished off the title using the School Days font.


Here's a close-up of the dimension created by adding pop dot to my elements. I also added more texture by stitching the Coved Rectangle stacker before adhering it to the card.


Here's another example of using repetition to increase the impact of smaller dies.

I used Little Stackers Scalloped Circle Nesting Dies to highlight 4 stamped pumpkin faces on this Halloween card. Again, any of the smaller dies in our Little Stackers Dies sets could be used in the same fashion!

Other Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
Coved Rectangle Stackers
Border Carnivale
French Flair Stackers

I hope this post has inspired you to pull out your smaller dies and put them to work on your projects!

Until next post...happy scrapping!!

  5. Adorable card, Tanisha and what fun it looks like you had. I particularly like how you trimmed the bottom off the coved rectangle card base, makes it look like a tombstone, too cool!
