Dream with Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi, it's Jenny here today.  Since the challenge is Anything Goes this week I thought I'd try something a little different and dust off my mixed media supplies.  I began with a piece of patterned card stock that I colored with distress ink.  I brushed a little shimmery embossing paste over the top in the upper left corner.  I then ripped a piece of card stock that had been cut with the Lattice #3 die.  I added crackle paint to the top of the lattice die cut and glued it down to the main card layer.  


The Chandelier die was colored with distress ink and embossed with gold and bronze chunky embossing powders.  I also sprayed some white dimensional spray in spots.  The Pierced Banner was cut from another piece of patterned card stock and a gold cord was threaded through the holes and tied in a bow.  Dream is from the Dream Big phrase set and the Sweet Christine flowers were cut with white and colored with pink ink.  I scrunched the flower petals to get an aged look and added rimmed pearls to the center. 


Last I cut a pink card with the  Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker die to back it with.  I didn't have the matching coved rectangle die to layer, so I flipped the die over and traced the corner curve on the main card layer before cutting the corners with scissors.

Happy New Year 2016 with Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 3 Comments

Hello! It's Lisa wishing everyone a fun, safe and wonderful Happy New Year 2016! 
This week's challenge is "Anything Goes" so I thought I would use "Clock" and "Balloons" for the celebration of the upcoming New Year. The balloons are the smallest and I added some floss for the string. The center of the clock was "Classic Circle-Silver" I used the smallest and printed a font from the computer. I then traced around the circle in black and fussy cut and distressed the edges. 


The "A2 Frame Rectangle Scalloped" was cut out, then I just layered it to make a square and cut it again. Lastly, I had to add some bling to make it a bit more festive. A few pop dots behind the clock and balloons.

My Little Guy 8x8 Layout by Amy Voorthuis

3:00 AM 5 Comments
Hello lovelies. 
Today it's me again on the blog to share another 8x8 layout I made using some amazing dies. 
For this layout I used one of my favorite Studio 75 collections ever named "Mrs & Mr Black".  It has just all the neutral colors there are, which I absolutely adore.
 For this layout I used a picture of our little {when I say "little" he says mom I am 10 and not little hihi} but he will always be our little guy. 

My Little Guy:
This collection consists of the cream and soft black gray tones which I absolutely adore! Look at our son's goofy smile - makes me want to eat his face hihihi love him so much. He said mom do you want to take pictures of me and I said well yeahhh for sure {he almost never offers to take pictures of him so I was luckily surprised}
This was such a fun layout to create but still really hard because I didn't use any flowers.  For me that is killing.....Let's have a closer look:

Hello Card by Eva Dobilas

3:30 AM 3 Comments

Hi there, this is Eva and I am here with a quick Hello card. This week our challenge is Anything goes, so I created a Hello card.

To start my card I cut a 5.5" square card base out of a cream color card stock.  Then I die cut the largest Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames out of patterned paper and a smaller Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames out of cream color card stock to layer on the card front.  Next I die cut a Lords and Commons Circle Doily out of patterned paper and a Tags #1 also out of a patterned paper to layer on top of each other and die cut an Oval out of pink card stock to layer on the Tag die.  Next I die cut the larger Hello out of silver glitter card stock to lay on top of the oval as my center piece.

Then I started working on the floral pieces.  I die cut Judy's Blooms and Medium Rose using patterned paper and built my flowers.  I glued them together and added half pearl in the middle of them.  I also die cut two smaller Leafy Flourish dies out of green card stock and added them to my flowers and finally I die cut one of the birds from the Feathered Friends die to add to my card.


Hope you like my little card.  Here is the list of dies I used to create this card with:


Thanks for stopping by and hope to see your creations in this week's challenge.

Hugs,
Eva

Winters Day by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 1 Comments

Hi everyone, it's JULIE hosting the blog today. Hope you all have had a lovely Christmas Day and Santa left you some new craft goodies. In Scotland it is unusually very mild for this time of year and no signs of snow yet, so I decided to make a Wintry Scene onto my card.

I started with a greyish blue cardstock and scattered some chunky white Embossing Powder on it to give a snowy effect. Next, I tattered and shaded the edges with Distress ink. 
My Tree and Icicles I applied the same technique as I did on my Wall Hanging last week which you can see HERE.


My Winter Sign I die cut out in black cardstock and fussy cut a layer in white cardstock distressing around the edges and gluing onto my sign, adding the word Winter and some more white embossing powder.


Finishing off my card with accents of Flower Soft snow.

Thanks for stopping by today and good luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge.

Poinsettia Step Card

3:30 AM 2 Comments
 A warm hello to you. It's Debbie here with you today from Debbie's Time out . I want to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas Day and that you have the love of family and friends around you today.


Today I have created a card using one of CLD step card dies. I do love the CLD step card dies as they are a easy and quick bases to make. I have used the A2 Fancy Step Card Kit  for the base of this card. The flourish pattern in this die makes for a elegant card. The Royal Scandinavian Doily Circle  is very elegant too so I layered it onto the center of the base.


 I featured the Poinsettia 2 in the center cutting it out of the pow paper which glitters so nicely. From the Deer in the Forest  die I used the leaves and flourish part of it to use as filler around the poinsettia. The pow paper is thick enough that the insides of the leaves don't fall out really easy so it gives a nice look that way too instead of always popping them out.


Another die from CLD that I really like is the Pretty Pretty Bows . You get two different sizes and they make perfect bows. This is the smaller sized bow that I have used here.

Well that is it for today. I am so glad you took the time to stop by . We do have our regular weekly challenge going on as usual so if you have the time and want to share your creation I would love to see it.  The theme this week is "Thank You".
 You can join @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge for you chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

I hope all your stockings were filled with CLD dies and that you have as much fun creating with them as I do. Merry Christmas and have a wonderful day.
                                Debbie

Christmas Joy with Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments
 

Hi everyone!  I'm here on Christmas Eve wishing everyone a wonderful holiday!  For this card I used the Build a Christmas Tree die to create the decorated tree.  This tree looks like there was a lot of work involved but there really wasn't.  This die made it so quick and simple.  I die cut the main tree and three extra branch pieces to layer for a full, dimensional tree, in one pass through my die cutting machine.  It also comes with all the little candy canes, star, angel, ornaments and tree skirt.  I used glitter glue on all the ornaments and star for sparkle.  I used a marker to add stripes to the candy canes.


The Joy sentiment comes from the Joy to the World Wreath and the corner is one of the three corners in the Lace Corner Deco I set.  I cut the center point off of it.  The scalloped edge die is the largest dies from the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped Set and the white oval was cut with the Oval Classic Silver Stackers set.

Thank You Santa! with Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Everyone! Happy Holidays! It's Lisa here today sharing one last card before Christmas with Cheery Lynn Designs. It was inspired by this week's challenge "Thank You". So I thought thanking Santa was a fun choice. I used a font from my computer and printed it on the "Royal Scandinavian Tag 2".


I usually like to make larger cards but for today I decided to make a A2 card because it works so wonderfully with the "Royal Scandinavian Boutique" I just love the gorgeous edge. I placed some patterned paper on top and added some "Poinsettias" on the top and bottom with pearls in the centers. 


Last but not least I added some "Holly Leaves"in white with a few more pearls in the corners.

Forever Mine 8x8 Layout by Amy Voorthuis

2:30 AM 3 Comments
Good morning everyone. 
It's time for the Tuesday girl {lol} and this time I'd like to share another 8x8 layout I made!
This time I used the pretty "Mon Amour" collection by Graphic 45 for a change, it's a really romantic collection to work with. That means I needed a romantic picture so I used a picture of my handsome hubby and me kissing. When our son saw me working on it he said oelalala sexy picture mommy ;-)
I used a lot of layers on this layout!

Forever Mine: 
This weeks challenge is about thank you for me that also reverse to being thankful and I am very thankful for the love my husband and I have together. He is my soulmate and I could not wish for anything more. For the background of my picture I used the Dutch Daisy Boutique I thought that was very appealing because we live in The Netherlands.

And for the banner in the middle of my page I cut up the outer die of the Royal Scandinavian Boutique  to make a border and for the centers of my flowers I used a diamond gem but for two of them I used a vintage screw brand {which are my favorite pieces to used as flower centers}.



  Thank you very much for your visit today and for last weeks comments I really appreciate it! I hope I have inspired you to make a 8x8 layout with your beautiful Cheery Lynn Designs dies. I always love your entries every week. This weeks challenge is #216 - Thank You Theme and if you enter you could win a $20 shopping spree at the online store awesome right? Good luck to everybody who's entering this week can't wait to see your work!

Thank You Card by Eva Dobilas

3:30 AM 1 Comments

Hello there, this is Eva here today sharing a Thank you card with al little bit of glitter.  This week's challenge theme is Thank you cards so I thought I would create one.  

To start out my card I die cut two Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames out of light blue card stock and created my card base with them.  Next I cut a smaller size rectangle panel out of silver glitter card stock to lay on top of my card front.  Then I die cut a Fiona's Magic Mirror using patterned paper and cut a smaller size rectangle panel to fit on top of it using another patterned paper.

Finally I die cut the Thank you out of silver glitter card stock to lay on top of that panel.  I think it came together pretty nice.


Hope you like this card and here is the list of the dies I used to create it:


Thanks for stopping by and hope to see your creations in this week's challenge!

Christmas Morning by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 1 Comments


Happy Christmas to everyone, it's JULIE here today. This week I have made a mixed media wall hanging with my inspiration coming from thinking Santa has delivered all his presents and is now relaxing whilst his washing dries. You may want to grab a cuppa while I take you through all the techniques and photos.


Starting off with a piece of corrugated card I ripped back the paper to reveal the corrugation in parts. Next I applied a layer of Gesso with a baby wipe and added some Crackle Paint to the edges. Once dry I rubbed over some Distress ink to highlight the cracks. I then scattered embossing powders over my Cardboard in lots of frosty colours and sparkles to give the effect of a snowy scene and depth within a Forest from the corrugation. I just wish cameras would pick up all the sparkle !


Now to the fun part with my dies. I cut out my birch tree 4 times, inking down one side of the birch tree with Distress ink. On the other side I shaded with a Versamarker Pen and applied some White Embossing Powder. You will now see the difference between the inked tree to the one with added snow.


Building them up I wanted my trees to look slightly different on each side so I now layered extra branches behind the main tree, notice the difference between the two trees.


The Icicles had Glitter Embossing Powder added in a frosty shade with a little ink added to the drips, finally I added some Glossy Accents.  This gives the look of the ice melting.


My little wildlife animals were all shaded with Distress Ink and  Black Liquid Pearls added into the centre of their eyes. I also highlighted the tiny details that Cheery Lynn are fab at putting into their dies, with a Fine Liner Pen.


Santa's Laundry - First I coloured the areas I wanted red with a Copic Pen. Next I rubbed over my die cut with my Anti Static bag and then I used my Versamarker Pen over the red and applied a Red Sparkle Embossing Powder to make Santa's clothes glisten. I repeated the process on the white areas of the jacket using a White Puff Embossing powder. His underwear was shaded with Distress Inks and once again I highlighted all the details with a Black Fine Liner Pen. The washing line was coloured with Copics.


My Christmas Lights once again were heat embossed with different colours. Once built up I added a fine black line between the baubles and wiring, this gives an illusion of depth.



Finishing off with my Happy Christmas Sign and Holly which has all been heat embossed with different shades.


A final tip before I finish ... Should you not have a large range of colours of Embossing Powders in your stash, colour your die cut with Copics and add Clear Detail Powder or Sparkly Clear Powder. This is how I got the effect on my grass using Copics.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used -
Thanks everyone for your continued comments and Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge. I hope you feel inspired to try some Mixed Media with your dies.

Crafty Hugs,

 Julie x
