Vintage Themed Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

No comments:
Monday greetings to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs!

I have a vintage themed card to share with you today as it's one of my favorite style of card. There are several layers of our stackers as you can see, from our A2 Frames in Classic and Scalloped to the Coved Rectangles in Classic and Scalloped.

The Alpine Flourish Doily was the perfect size to layer into the design here. You can also hopefully see the subtle hint of snowflakes which are cut from vellum here.

Since the vintage image I've used includes thread spools in it, I used a tiny wooden one I had found in my local craft store. It is wrapped with a cut from one of our Tiny Expandable Borders and secured with glue.  I then used it with a stick pin for an embellishment with my florals.

Details of the floral cluster.

I finished the interior of my card simply with our new Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker, then cut it again using the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped die to create the border. The Thank You #2 was added as the final step.

Sweet Moments with Quick Quotes!

Greetings to you and happy Saturday!

It's my day to host the blog over at Quick Quotes and share a project using the gray papers from our Alton and Antique Garden collections along with some chipboard from the Baggage Claim collection.

Sweet Moments (12x12 Page)

I started by using Midnight Confessions and stamping it using a coffee ring stamp, then a splatter stamp. The top trim was done using triangle strips that I layered together.  Next, I cut the banner, then matted my photo to it.

I had a kraft heart that I added, then inked with Coal Miner to coordinate with my page.  I also used my PowderPuff Chalk Inks on my craft mat, spritzed some water and then splattered onto my page.

This was a free style page that just came together so easily by mixing and matching the lines.  I love how the PowderPuff Chalk Inks add so much to a project!

Just for Fun Friday!

No comments:
Happy Friday to you!

It's been a quiet stretch on my blog lately but things are finally getting a bit back to normal, so thanks for hanging in there with me.  I'm finally recovering from my surgery, but it's taken a lot longer to get my energy level back.

I've got a project created just for fun today.  I was at a crop a few weeks ago and started working on this using a November Clique Kit that I was the lucky recipient from their blog contest.

The kit had all kinds of fun papers from Lemon-Owl and Webster's Pages and a wonderful assortment of embellishments. I used a few of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs dies here as well and then some enamel dots and sequins from my personal stash. 

Lemon Owl is a new manufacturer for me to work with, so that's always fun! The wooden sentiment came with the kit and I used my Quick Quotes Lemonade PowderPuff Chalk ink on it to give it a little pop.

I'd like to enter my project in the Clique Kits - January Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping on over today - have a super scrappity day!

Masculine Valentine with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs today and I am so excited to share my project with you.

I thought it would be fun to play along with our challenge theme for this week "Sweethearts - (Add a Heart)" and created a masculine themed valentine card.

"XO" (A2 Sized Card)

I started with the Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker cut from white card stock, then used the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped cut from kraft card stock for my next layer. Then, I used the A2 Frames Rectangular Classic and cut it from white card stock to alternate my color scheme.

Using the rectangle cut, I then cut the pretty intricate Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker by adhering the die to the center with some Washi Tape. You can see the result below.

For my center cluster, I cut one Celtic Heart from kraft card stock, then using a pencil, lightly outlined the shape on white card stock. I trimmed and backed the design with white card stock, then adhered with foam dimensional adhesive.

Next, the smaller of the Two of Hearts was cut from kraft card stock and adhered with dimensional adhesive as well. I thought it would be pretty to cut one of the delicate Arrows and tuck it into the top heart.

I added the ribbon and branches to the top, then finished by adding pearls to the corners and to the heart along with my XO sentiment. The sentiment was cut from a scrap and I trimmed it to fit.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies Used:
Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame - DL293
Arrows (5 Dies) - B467
Celtic Heart - B144
Two of Hearts - DL128
Pine Branches - B146
