Thinking of you by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 7 Comments

Hello there Blogging friends it's Julie here today. I have made a Thinking of you card today which could easily adapt to many different occasions using the Cheery Lynn word dies.



I had a lot of fun making this card and hope you give it a go too. I used the Square Classic to cut out all my small frames and edged them with embossing powder on the outside and inside of the frames. I layered 3 frames with foam pads to give more dimension onto my card and kept the one with the wording flat. Layering them up onto different sizes of the Square Scalloped die. These 2 dies compliment each other so you don’t have to think about measuring out everything for your card, the dies do the job for you.




  Dies Used :


Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge.

Thanks for popping by, enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you all next Saturday.

3:30 AM 7 Comments

Hello Friends!

It's Corina with you today - on this fabulous Friday!

I like to see what inspires each person, how they create and some times a glimpse into their life and thought process.

"Do you ever start a project and it just get bigger and bigger and bigger??  It just needs one little bit to finish it.  And maybe a bit here.  And there."

You are so right Gail/Iona/Crafty Nomad! - Love your posts!


As I mentioned last week, I sometimes cut the dies and use pieces of them. I
cut the Ribbon Eyelet Border die cut down the center and placed half on both sides of my pattern paper strip going down my card.

I also used the left over piece of my Chasing Rainbows Doily die cut from last weeks card! Added some ink and it made a wonderful layer! Never throw anything away!

Mixing it Up with Rhonda

3:30 AM 1 Comments
Happy Memorial Day.  Before we get to Rhonda's project, we would like to honor the more than one million Americans who gave their lives in the service of their country.  Without these brave men and women, we would not have the freedoms we do today.  Thank you to each and every one and to their families for their sacrifices.

Happy Monday to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you. My project today is another where I've used a variety of scraps and it was really fun to put together.  I like to save my unused cuts so they don't go to waste, then challenge myself to use them up. You'll see that I cut some designs apart to use them in a different way.


I started with a 5.5" square base card, then I layered my Square Horizon Boutique Stacker, Square Scalloped Stacker and Square Classic Silver Stacker together.  Next I added the Chicken Wire, Wagon Wheel and ribbon.  Then the Princess Tree was cut apart and layered under my Daisy Strip.


The Daisy was cut from white cardstock and inked for a softer dimensional look.  I cut a heart from Sophia's Heart Border as an accent for my little tag.  A few little pearls and bling were added to give a little sparkle to my card.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
Square - Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies - XL-2
Square Classic Silver Stackers - L1
Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames - DL253
Steampunk Corner Set - B437
Horizon Fishtail Banners - DL278
Mini Butterflies with Angel Wings - D138
Chicken Wire - FRM144
Sophia's Heart Border - B333
Double Scallop Border - B465

Please join us in our all new challenge this week "Roses"!  You could be the very lucky winner of a $20 gift certificate just for playing along!

Thanks so much for stopping on over to the blog today.

Time for Dad by Julie Lavalette.

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Hello there blogging friends, it's Julie here today.
The challenge this week is Make it Manly and with Father’s Day fast approaching here in the UK, I thought it would be nice to share a masculine card with you.

 

I cut out the Steampunk Clock in black cardstock and also in gold mirri card. I then paper pieced elements together to make the workings of the clock stand out. I rubbed over my mirri card with a little Archival Ink to give it an aged appearance. The clock die comes with a background circle die too, which is a great idea as it really sets your clock off and makes it ‘pop’ on the page. I cut my background out with kraft paper and added a little crackles and distress. 


The new Steampunk Corners are a fabulous accent to a card or scrapbook page. I cut mine out in black cardstock and rubbed a little gilding wax over to give a metallic look and complimented them with the gears die on my card which were also cut out in mirri card.

 Thanks for popping by, enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you all next Saturday.

Happy Card with Corina Finley

3:30 AM 2 Comments
 
Corina here with the Friday blog post. Thank you for joining me!
 
I created my flowers using the background patterned paper as a colour palette. This weeks card has a Fall Vintage feel! I love the brightness of the orange and the depth of the brown tones.
 

Here is a close-up of the floral arrangement. I used buttons, ribbon, seam binding, pearls and my homemade shimmer spray to enhance my flowers. Don't be afraid to cut up your die cuts and use portions of them. I used a piece of the Chasing Rainbows Doily on the top right of the floral arrangement.

Friendship Journey Tag

3:00 AM 3 Comments
Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here sharing a Steampunk Friendship tag. This has one of my favorite quotes : "Friends are those people who know the words to the song in your heart and sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."~Anonymous. I've used the Queen Anne's Lace border along with several steampunk dies and the gear emboss plate..


I began by embossing a tag with the Gears Embossing Plate. I rubbed brown chalk ink over the surface of the tag enhancing the gear pattern. Next die cuts of the Gear Mesh Border and the Queen Anne's Lace Border were layered on the background. French Flair was die cut around the stamped quote and the matching scallop was adhered to the back. The pocket watch and a corner were adhered to the back of the matted quote and then added to the tag with some foam tape for dimension. Finally gears and a clock hand were added to the tag. The word Journey was cut in red and added to the upper embossed part of the tag.

Friendship Card by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 4 Comments


Hello Everyone,

It’s Julie here today, thanks for visiting.
I have made a Friendship card to share with you all today.



All my dies were cut out using white cardstock and shaded with Distress inks apart from my little butterflies of which I used Pearlised cardstock. 



On the front edge of my card I cut this to be about half an inch shorter than the back edge. I then positioned 2 layers of the Dancing Doily die on the front and 2 on the inside of the card.

I absolutely adore the design and elegance of the new Southern Charm Valance die. I placed a strip along the top and bottom of my card and then cut out another 2 strips and paper pieced the middle section into the sides of my card.

You still have time to enter this week's challenge Dry Embossing and win a nice prize !

Hello Card from Corina!

3:30 AM 5 Comments
 
Hello Everyone!
 
Corina here with the Friday blog post. Thank you for joining me!
 
I very much enjoyed creating this card because I used a few new release dies for the first time and also tried cutting the Rustic Birdhouse die out of burlap. Which was not difficult at all. The die went through my Big Shot with no problem, smooth and easy!
 
 
I love creating nature scenes for my cards using my Cheery Lynn Dies. I hope you will try a new medium (burlap, vellum, Lutradur® Mixed Media Sheets )  to die cut on your next project! Let me know what you tried!
