A Patriotic Page with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Monday greetings to you!  It's my day to host the Cheery Lynn Designs blog and share my project.

I made a patriotic page today featuring a photo of Mt. Rushmore that I took when we were on vacation this summer. There was something so patriotic and majestic about seeing the monument in person.


I started with an 8x8 piece of white cardstock and used Fancy Corners #4 on the corners. Next, I used the Scalloped Rectangle and aligned it to cut a 7x7" square. (This is one of the Reflections Boutique dies.) At the top I used a Victorian Romance Flourish as a hanger type of element in between my layers. Lace Heart Square is next.


I had some pieces left from my project last week, so you will see the Foliage Embossed white cardstock and French Lattice on top, tucked under the Southern Charm Valance on the right.


To anchor my photo I used the Polynesian Sails Oval, then layered a medium Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker with foam squares. The photo is then attached with foam squares. This gives me a lot of area to layer my cuts. On the bottom you'll see a snip of Sophia's Heart Border, another piece left over from a previous project. 

Layered on the right are the Quills and a Wheat cluster, topped with the Star and Birds of Earth and Sky. To the left of that is a Branch. There are Cloud cuts layered under the photo and one attached with foam squares.

Missing You 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 "Missing You" sentiment card to share with you today.  My card was created using a variety of our pretty dies. One thing that I really love to do is mix and match our dies.

"Missing You" (A2 sized card)

I started by cutting the medium Horizon Square Boutique Stacker, then scored and folded it. I adhered to the back. Next, I layered under on the front the French Lattice Small and on top of it, half of a Kiwi Spirit Doily. 


I cut the Southern Charm Valance from cardboard of a cereal box, then added a coat of gesso. It was adhered with some glossy accents on the lines and vines. I left the right center side open so I could layer in my Sentiment Tag 2 and Horizon Fishtail Banner.

I've shaped my Horizon Fishtail Banner to add a bit of dimension and charm. My Tea Rose flower was first embossed using the Foliage Embossing Plate, then cut, shaped and inked lightly. I tucked in the Mini Fanciful Flourish and added the petite florals from Embellishments 3 to add a bit of a delicate touch. Pearl centers finished the flower along with a few little stick pins.

Envelope Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

No comments:
Happy first day of September to you.  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I have a criss cross style card to share with you today. This style of card is fun to create as you get a decorative envelope and another sweet little card to go inside.


Once I assembled my base piece, I used our Card Maker Rectangle Classic to cut my pieces for the front. I then used the Lilith Edger Doily die on my angle.  You see the Anastasia Border peeking out on the sides and bottom.


The Fiona's Magic Mirror fit perfectly inside to create the base for my card. The other layers were used with Card Maker Rectangle classic and scalloped. The little tags were layered and tucked in to create a little tab to help pull the card out.


I've used a variety of flowers here for interest and texture along with the Rose Leaf Strip and Flourish Leaf Strip.  I hope you liked my creation today, it was really fun to create this card.

If you would like to make one of these cards, you can find the tutorial by Beate Johns on SplitCoastStampers here.

Vintage Noel Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I have a holiday themed card to share with you today created in a more neutral color scheme. The new release has beautiful holiday sentiments and this card features the all new "Noel" die.

"Noel" (A2 size card)

I used one of the Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stackers as part of my base. On top of this, I've adhered two cuts of the Tree Blowing In The Wind and adhered them on the horizontal in position.

The Oval Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker is layered on top of it using Foam Adhesive for dimension.  You'll see that the tree peeks out and creates a framed shape. Noel is cut and adhered next.


To accent the sentiment, I've used our Tea Roses in Medium and Small. Cut a Holly Flourish in neutral paper, then cut it apart to tuck it in among my florals. 

I've misted my flowers with gold shimmer mist. The Lace Corner Deco 2 was cut twice and adhered on the top ad bottom, then accented with pearl gems in a neutral color.
