# Dimensional Leaves # flowers

Frills and Flower Ornament & Goodbye

My blog post today is my last one for Cheery Lynn Designs.  I will miss creating for such a lovely company, though will enjoy my visits back to the blog. Cheery Lynn Designs is a fantastic company to design for, and for me personally, it has been a wonderful learning experience, and one I will always be truly grateful for. I want to thank Mike and Bj Dwyan (owners of Cheery Lynn Designs) for their hospitality in having me as part of their 2011/2012 design team!!

...and a BIG thank you to Sandy, our DT coordinator who has been an amazing source of information, inspiration and help to the whole team...You really do an amazing job, and I am
going to miss you!

To the other design members, it has been so much fun working with you, and I am really looking forwards to what the new Design Team members will bring to the team from April onwards - welcome aboard!

Cheery Lynn Designs has some exciting news coming up soon, so please stay tuned on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog for further information, which will be posted around the 1st of April!
It is 'must not miss' news!

Anyhow......today, for Cheery Lynn Designs I have created something a little different - two lace and rose ornaments.  I placed ribbon on the back of mine, but these could also be used to decorate tags or layouts.  

To create the base of the ornament, I used the Frills and Hearts Border for the first ornament, and the Anastasia Border for the second.  The photo below shows how I constructed the base. I used the Eazi Score board by Diamond Card Craft, scoring evenly along the length of the die cut, and then fan folded each border.  You can find the Eazi-Score Board/s "HERE". 

Thank you to Phillis Gullick, who provided the score board, embossing tool and book to all the design team members.  I am enjoying my creating with your products! 

I cut several Scalloped Window Stacker circles (smallest, and next size up).  The larger circle out of the two was used to adhere the borders upon.  The smallest circle was used on top of the lace base, to adhere the flower upon so I had an even surface to work upon.

The photograph below is a close up of the Frills and Heart Border ornament.  The flower was created using the Cuties 2.  For this flower I curled each of the petal tips outwards using a quilling tool, and lightly inked the edges with Aged Mahogany distress ink. 

The foliage consists of Olive Branches, and the Cuties 4.  The Cuties 4 makes the perfect sized leaves for this sized flower.  All you do is remove the petals from the die cut!

Both projects were constructed using strong adhesive glue dots. Larger glue dots were used to adhere flower, and the Scalloped Window Stacker circles.  Tiny glue dots were used for the foliage. 

The rose in the below photograph was created using the Miniature Rose and Medium Rose. As I was constructing the rose (especially the outer layers) I used a quilling tool to curl the petals under or upwards 'slightly' to give the petals a more realistic appearance.

The leaves (above photograph) I used the Small Dimensional Leaves 2. Again, I rolled the edges of the leaves upwards and outwards, to create realism.

Dies Used:

This week on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog, the challenge theme is 'Things with Wings' - please come and join in the fun of the challenge, you can create anything at all - layout, card, off the page project, etc. as long as there is at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die used in your creation (of course, more is better).  You have the chance of winning a $20 voucher to spend in store with Cheery Lynn Designs.

Wishing everyone, happiness always..
