Love step cards and the new Bohemian collection!

Maggi here today to share one of my favorite card designs,  a step card, and Cheery Lynn Designs makes it easy for you with their step card die, Step Card Bundle Set #4.  Then add in some diecuts from the new Bohemian collection and you're sure to have a winning card!

I've used dies from the new Bohemian collection to enhance this card.

I used the Mandala Doily 2 backed with a  diecut from the Nesting Doll- Circles #1 3 Piece Die Set. I really like how the Nesting Doll diecut provides a backing for the Mandala Doily diecut.

 On the right face I've used Bohemian Collection - Indie Border, althugh it is hard to see because of the printed paper.  The flowers were made with the Bohemian Collection - Indie Bouquet - 6 Die Set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lollipop Pencil /Card with Cheryl Walker

For the January New Release Blog Hop, please click HERE.

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!
Today I have a super fun Lollipop card I made using the beautiful New Bohemian Collection / and Past Releases of Cheery Lynn Dies, and I have to say I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out, with all the dies I used. I will be making more of these :) hehehehe
The Lollipop part of this was made up using Cheery Lynn's Sophia's heart die.  I cut it out in Bazzill shimmer card stock. Next I cut the Priscilla Doily die out in Club Scraps card stock ( I added Viva Pearl pen dots in silver along the edges), then the next one cut is the Cheery Lynn DL272 Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker frame, and cut in the same shimmer card stock.  I then hot glued some lace to the back of that. Next I cut the Mehndi Botanical 3 out and cut it into pieces to frame the circle pierced die that was cut in shades of winter as well. The tag with The Project Bins stamped sentiment is called Cheery Lynns CABD-108 Tags #3.  It was cut in the same coordinating design paper.

Flowers were cut out using the NEW Mehndi Botanical 3 flower and I cut it in another design paper in the Shades of winter collection. Love the look of them. I also placed a matching flower embellishment from Really Reasonable Ribbon in the center. LOVE how they look! I backed the flowers with the Mehndi Botanical Stems.

Bows- Made using Really Reasonable Ribbons Delicate Stitched Satin, and lace.

Stick- a pencil painted in white with ribbon wrapped around.

Fishing in Minnesota with Laurie Schmidt

Hi Laurie here with a Minnesota card to share today!

 My friends and I have really been into making Cheery Lynn state cards lately. They are SO fun to make and to give. People love to receive them, and the possibilities for each state are endless. From state MN Vikings and Twins, to favorite vacation spots like Disney World in Florida....we have made a ton of them! It's so fun to add footballs, or Mickey Mouse ears, the state flowers and can see how it goes on and on! There are lots of ideas for whatever state you live can find yours here.

I was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes. There are lakes everywhere, and of course fishing is a HUGE deal in our area. Locals and tourists are always out on the lakes fishing...right now..... on the ice..... in fish houses! Brrrrrr! It IS lots of fun though.

 For this card, I used a bunch of CL fishing dies. I started out with some fish patterned paper cut out with the rectangle stitch and cut tool, and added the canoe and  fishing pole. 

Then I adhered the state, and added the sentiment with some cute bobbers and oars:

I also tucked in a few pine branches....we have a ton of those around here too!

Minnesota B727

As you can probably tell by this post, I REALLY like making state cards...especially from Minnesota!

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!

Birthday Wishes Card

 Hello Cheery Lynn Peeps!  Got another card for you today using several fantastic dies.  I created a fun birthday card.....perfect for a New Year birthday.  I used Birthday Wishes circle die for my sentiment and layered it on top of both the Birthday Cake shaker die set and the clock (steampunk)series set,
 I added ribbons and mini gold sequins that I randomly placed here and there inside the cake die.
 I just love all that dimension you get when you add foam adhesive and layer several of your dies up.
For a bit more interest I used the Quatrofoil A2 frame 2 die as my background paper.

Rome by Jenny Alia

Hi friends!  Jenny  here sharing a card using a few travel dies.  I don't often scrapbook but these dies would make an awesome layout.  I knew I would use these three dies and combine them with a map or vintage paper background but the additional textures and mixed media elements evolved as I worked.

I found a piece of corrugated cardboard (that my daughter had left from opening a box) and used it to create an interesting texture on the card.  It was colored with distress ink and glued to the card front. I painted a crackle glaze on the Italy die and covered the Colosseum and World Atlas dies with white and gold Frantage embossing powders.

I always like adding glitz but I thought rhinestones and glitter would look too new on this vintage card.  After distressing with both ink and a distress tool, I dabbed gold texture paste on the edges of the patterned card stock.  I backed the World Atlas with the same blue-gray card stock behind the patterned paper.  It helps tie the color into the piece and helps the detailed globe stand out against the background. The main card is a 5.5" square base.

I hope you enjoyed my attempt at mixed media and thanks for stopping by today! 
Hugs, Jenny

Valentine's Teddy Bear Card with Bonnie Garby

Hi friends.  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft.  Today I have a sweet card to share that will be perfect for the one you love.  Cheery Lynn Designs has so many wonderful Valentine themed dies to choose from.  Be sure to head over and take a look at all the options.
My card base is a brown 5-1/2" square.  I cut the fancy Square Frame in cream cardstock and then adhered it to brown, pink, brown, mint and brown layers, leaving a thin border for each.  I then backed that with natural mulberry paper and attached it to the card base.

Then I cut the smaller Square Frame and layered it up again much the same as the base.  Then this was centered on point and adhered to the base layers.
I cut my Teddy Bear in brown and shaded with distress inks.  I added pink to the ears and paws and black for the nose and eyes.  I cut it again in pink so I could have the heart in pink and adhered this to the bear.  I also shaped the bear a bit with a stylus and foam pad for a little dimension.  I adhered the bear on foam tape for added dimension.

I cut the XOXOXO die in brown and adhered it to cream cardstock and then brown leaving a small border on each.  I then adhered that below the bear.  I also added a couple of the Sweetheart Candies shaded with distress ink on each side of the sentiment.

I finished my card off with a pretty bi-color bow using Pearl Pink and Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's the perfect addition to balance the card and add a little interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!

Life is Good Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning everyone.
It's my turn again on this lovely blog and today I'd like to show you another card I created with some amazing dies. It's a black & white shaker card and I not only added shaker pieces but also cut out gears. I also made some fun flower sprays on this card.  They are so much fun to make.  Hopefully I will get the time to show you how I made them soon. 

Life is Good: 
Since I make many layouts, I also have a bunch of leftover papers.  This card was also made with leftovers. First I layered a piece of black with white dots paper on my 15.5 by 15.5 cm base card that is made with just white thick card stock. 

 Then I cut my frame out of the leftover white card stock.  Then I took another piece of the same dotted paper of 14.5 by 14.5 to cut out a part that is just a little smaller then the frame so I could stick my lattice frame on the back of that particular piece.  

Then I added my shaker pieces like the metal daisies shaker parts, mini art stones, gears and beads to fill up my card! On the phrase I made some stripes on the outer sides of the letters to make it pop up a little more that is what I also did with the outside of the card.

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Have a lovely weekend.....

A Birthday Recipe by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today and I'm sharing some Birthday inspiration with you in a vintage style.

I have added some pearls and cheesecloth to my stars and Sister word with a drop shadow effect.

My sentiment was stamped and a little Stickles added to the edges mounting onto my die cut layers with foam strips and another touch of cheesecloth.

My flowers were cut out in white cardstock inking the centres with a soft pink shade and  moulding on my embossing mat to shape the petals and finishing with a pearl centre.

Crafty Hugs,
Julie x

You Are Awesome by Debbie Brownmiller

Hi everyone.
Debbie here from Debbie's Time Out. Today I am going to share a card with you featuring  some of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers. Flowers are always a good way to give your card some added dimension.

I started with a pretty pattern paper matted in black.  I layered the Lords & Commons Doily  in the center of the card to build on.

The pretty flowers were created using the Black Eyed Susan Strip , Chrysanthemum Strip , Cuties 4 and Build a Flower #1 . The Branch were used for filler behind the flowers.

The sentiment "Whimsical You Are Awesome" was layered on the bottom. This it a great sentiment and easy to place because it is all one piece. I hope I have inspired you too make a special card for a special person. Have a crafty week my friends.
