Kianel here with you back on my usual posting day for another creation i made using the marvellous Cheery Lynn designs dies.
Today i am finally allowed to show you the result of the tutorial i made last year to make your own background paper. This was the background i ended up with, using the exotic butterflies dies in various sizes both as stencils and stamps i made with foam:
Never got to show you the final result though as the page had been published in a french magazine, but i now i can so here it is:
To make my background, i used the exotic butterflies small #2, Exotic butterfly extra large, and stamps and distress inks. (see the tutorial). To decorate this lay out, i used the small exotic butterflies # 1, the tropical flourish die and the XL scalloped oval stackers combined with XL oval stackers to make my frame around the picture. We didn't have the flower dies at that time so they are all premade.
I hope you will like this layout, i don't do so many of them because i am totally lost with this much space to "fill": what can i say, i'm a cardmaker, lol!
*******************************************And speaking of cardmaking, here is a new card i created for Cheery Lynn Designs. I love to give myself challenges from times to times so my challenge this week was to make a card using dies i've never used before. I did it and, apart from the flourish, the miniature rose and the butterflies, the other dies were brand new. Here is the result:
XL square stackers. I then created an opening using one of the beautiful frames that Cheery Lynn carries. The stamp and papers are coming from Magnolia.
Dutch doily rectangle frame that is the same on both sides.
Lace corner deco B that i cut out 5 times and flipped as accordeon. I then glued them on a circle of paper and added a flower in the center made using the miniature rose die which is covered with Creative Inspirations paint and the leaf that goes together with it. I ended with adding pieces of the fanciful flourish die here and there.
small dragonfly that i just slightly inked with distress.
Dutch doily rectangle frame. I cut it once and placed it on cardstock that i cut just a few millimeters larger than the actual frame. And did the same on the other side.
Sunflower dies that i inked with distress and Adirondack inks. Another fanciful flourish adornates it.
hearts in their sortiment? Well, it's worth giving it a look and hard to find the one you like the most as they are all beautiful. This one is called Celtic Heart.
exotic butterflies small set are slightly inked and decorated with half pearls and placed in the inside of the card.
Well, i hope you've enjoyed those creations. Don't forget our challenge blog with a chance to win a 20$ shopping spree every week! Lots of love from France, Kianel.
