Happy Halloween Tag!

3:30 AM 0 Comments
Hi everyone and Happy Halloween to you!  It's yummy eat candy day! ūüėĀ  To celebrate with you today, I made this cute giant size tag with Cheery Lynn Designs dies, papers from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and Prima Color Bloom Mist.

The tag I used is a Tim Holtz medium size Etcetera tag.  I love these giant 6.5" x 12" tags!  To do the background, I first painted the tag with clear gesso and then I rubbed on different colors of Oxide Inks.  Misting the inks with water allows the colors to blend together with a natural appearance.  Then to simulate moon glow, I used Prima Color Bloom mist in Empress Gold.

On the left, near the bottom, I used the Spiderweb Die and a cat from the Witch's Brew 8 Piece Die Set.

Down in the corner we have a creepy black widow spider crawling about her web cut with Halloween Set #3.  I layered some cheesecloth underneath that I dyed with black ink.

 The sentiment and the bats were cut with  the Happy Halloween 4 Piece Die Set.  I cut two sentiments and offset one over top the other to make it really stand out.

This cute but frightful witch is part of the Witch's Brew 8 Piece Die Set.  I love how she looks silhouetted against the moon.  Of course I had to add a couple flowers because that is what I do!  At the top I added two black Large Roses misted with gold.

Other Supplies:
Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks
Tim Holtz Medium Etcetera Tag
Prima Color Bloom Empress Gold Mist
Really Reasonable Ribbon Black Netting

Thanks for visiting Cheery Lynn Dies today!

Happy Halloween with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today I have a super cute Halloween card I made using several dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love how they look, and how they turned out.  All were colored using Copic markers, except the ghost and fence.

I used this darling design paper Tricks and Treats from Pebbles. Next I layered with a purple and black card stock, then did sewing with an orange color thread. The Happy Halloween was cut using the Cheery lynn die B905 Happy Haunts and then colored using an orange ink.  I did add some black dots to all the letters, I thought it gave them some contrast. Next I colored the pumpkins using all Copic markers, 2 oranges, 3 greens, and a tan color. Next the twisted tree was cut in white, and then colored with Copic brown. The Wrought Iron fence was cut using black card stock. I glued everything using my favorite glue, Best Glue Ever, and it is! You just have to try to keep it off your hands....hehehehe.  I used foam squares for the ghost.

Super fun and fast card to make, as I haven't been feeling so well, so this need to be quick.

Jack O' Lantern Witch with Laurie Schmidt

3:00 AM 4 Comments

Laurie here from Stamping Up North sharing a spooky Jack O' Lantern witch card today.... 
just in time for Halloween!

I love this set...the faces are so fun! I added some sparkly green enamel dots for their noses. Then I stacked them up and added a Witch Hat and some arms from the Acorns and Leaves dies to make my witch.

I sponged some distress oxide inks onto watercolor paper for my background, sprinkled on a bit of water, and let it dry. Then I adhered the Aspen Forest die cut, the Jack O' Lantern witch I had made, and some spooky little bats.

The sentiment is cut out from the Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath set. I layered it 3 times for some added dimension.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Hello Owl by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Everyone!  I'm back two days in a row to share an autumnal card.  I had so much fun playing with this Whimsical Owl Die.  Because of  his detail it was really easy to cut him out of different colored card stock and then paper piece all the different elements.  Next time I use him I'm definitely going to add patterned papers.  I think he could use a little more flair.  

I added black rhinestones for his eyes and layered the scene behind him layering different colored paper and the Dutch Scallop Square.  The card needed more balance and interest so last I added the Hello form the Bohemian Word Die Set.

Be My Valentine by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi friends,  I'm back today sharing a CAS card using some of my Valentine's dies.  I was in the mood to try something different and for me, this is.  I love the look of Clean & Simple cards but rarely make them in practice.  I love the stitched edge detail and shape of this adorable heart die.

I first cut a heart out using the Be My Valentine Heart die.  I glued a piece of patterned card stock behind the cut out and then cut the heart die  a second time using a darker pink paper.  I cut Love out of glitter paper and then added the silver string to the top.  The silver cord and glittered love added extra interest and balance.

Bats and Ghouls by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi fellow crafters, it's JULIE here today and I'm sharing some Halloween inspiration with my spooky card. I always have great fun at this time of the year creating cards with scenes on them.

For this card I decided to make my own inky background using Distress Inks and mounted it onto white cardstock. 

My spiders web was drop shadowed adding another inky layer on top with my sentiment which compliments the Twisted Tree Die so well. Finishing this area with a couple of scary ghouls.

My skeleton I cut his legs off and then placed all the parts behind the gravestone in a fun abstract way.

My Twisted Tree I decided to lay on its side to look like a spooky branch also adding a drop shadow to it. I then added my crow and attached my bats on to the branch by drawing a line with a fineliner pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired to create a fun Halloween card.

Crafty Hugs,

You are Strong {hopeful} card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovelies. 
How nice of you to visit the blog.  Today it's my turn again to show you what I made using my precious Cheery Lynn Designs dies. This time I went for a card with some of the flower dies Cheery Lynn Designs offers {I love making my own flowers}. For this card I used the pretty NEW "Rose Quartz" collection by Prima Marketing and some of the Maja Design card stock for making the pink flowers. 

You are Strong:
I was inspired by pink ribbon, because in the Formula 1 {yes I watch that ;-)} they made some pink highlights in the cars which I thought was amazing. In the centers of the flowers I added some metal embellishments and I also used some flairs by Cuts2luv. To finish my card I added some leaves, prills {those little pink beads}, dewdrops and a bow of thread.

Let It Snow With Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Hi! Is it snowing yet by you? Well here in the valley of the sun it is just beginning to cool down...meaning 80's....lol Today I wanted to share another new card using some more fabulous die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs

I die cut foam with "let it snow" so it pops off the card. The "wreath" I die cut once in green. I thought about cutting it out again but I thought it speaks for itself. 

The "icicles" and "winter neighborhood border" I added some liquid appliqué to give it a realistic snow look.

Thanks again for stopping by today. 
Have a great week. 
Hugs Lisa

Christmas Easel Card by Maggi

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Maggi here today sharing a pretty easel card that will display so prettily! I used several different Cheery Lynn Designs dies to make this card and I can just imagine how lovely it will look sitting on a mantle spreading Christmas cheer.  I used Graphic 45's new Seasons and Winter Wonderland collections for my design papers.
I love dimension so I used lots of layers and popped up two of them.  From the bottom there is a red square, then a holly print layer just peeking out cut with the Pierced Stacker 3.  The next layer is popped up and consists of a square with a Quadrafoil Square Doily adhered to it. Then the final layer, also popped up, is a Seasons cut-apart.
To really make this card pop, I added handmade flowers.  The red roses were made with the Large Rose  and Medium- Rose  die sets.  The pretty cream flower was made with Judy's Blooms Die.

 I used the Holly Corner underneath the flowers to add the perfect touch to my floral clusters.

Inside the card, the pretty band and popped up tag serve to hold the easel of the card upright.  There's also plenty of room to write a personal message.

This side view shows you how the easel mechanism works.

Lollipop Card with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 1 Comments
Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all!
Today I have a super fun project I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using their beautiful dies. I love how this turned out, and really need to make some more.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy my post for today!

So for the lollipop card you will need the DL184 Sophia's Heart die, it's the large one done in fuchsia card stock. Next I used Cheery Lynn's DL102 French Pastry Die.  That was cut in white card stock. Next on top of that is a circle die cut in a design paper like the design paper that is on the top layer. Both of those circles were cut using LPC4 Circle Pierce and cut tool LG silver. Next on top of that is the Flourish Frames B888,  Large frame cut in pink card stock, and the little one is cut in a white, then distressed with pink to match. Flowers are the B436 Tea Rose Medium flower , then the branches are from the B216 wreath strip. These are super fun and pretty easy to make. I love how they come together so nicely. You can layer as much or as little as you like, but for me I LOVE lots of layers.....hehehehe.  I hope this inspires you and have fun crafting!!!

Spooky Halloween with Laurie Schmidt

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Hi everyone!

Laurie here from Stamping Up North with a spooky Halloween card to share with you today. Halloween is just around the corner and I finally bought my pumpkins and mums to decorate my front steps. On my door I also hung a Jack O' Lantern which my little neighbor girl loves...she looks at it and says,"spooky face, spooky face!" I think she would like this card, as this Jack O' Lantern has a spooky face too!

I started out with some fun Halloween paper for my background, and pulled from the colors to cut out my images. I cut the sentiment out from Happy Halloween and layered it in black and purple. Then I adhered it onto a green pierced circle.

I just LOVE the Jack O'Lantern set, it comes with 3 different sized pumpkins, here I used the largest one. I added two of the tiny white ghosts form the Happy Haunts set...I think they look pretty spooky too!

Here's a list of dies I used:

Happy Halloween B829

Happy Haunts B905

Jack O' Lanterns B594

Circle Pierce and Cut Tool LPC4

I hope you have a spooky Halloween!

The Stocking Were Hung by the Chimney with Care Card with Bonnie Garby

3:30 AM 3 Comments
Hello there fellow die lovers!  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft and I'm sharing a scenic holiday card I created with several fun die sets from Cheery Lynn Designs.
These cards are very easy to make with the wonderful dies sets from Cheery Lynn Designs and you'll find that you can mix and match many of the sets to build different unique settings.  Today I'm using several sets, but you can build a similar scene with sets that you have.

Cheery Lynn dies used:
CABD127 Fireplace

I first created my fireplace scene by cutting the different pieces out of the colors of cardstock that I wanted.  I had a leftover piece of orange Distress Ink paper from Halloween that worked perfectly for the fire.  My Christmas tree was cut in some green Distress Ink paper along with red and silver and stacked together.  I then created my card base and layers and laid out the fireplace and trees the way I wanted them.  I adhered the fireplace and accessories first and then I added the tree using some foam adhesive squares to add some dimension.  I then cut the presents and added them.
I finished my card off with a pretty bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the Christmas themed October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added a pretty flower shaped pearl embellishment to the center of the bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Why not pull out your die set and stamp a winter holiday scene today!
