Pop Up Best Wishes

Glad to see you here for the "3-D Pop Up" blog hop.  If you just came from visiting Bonnie @ "Make Time To Craft"   You are on the right track. If not then head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs blog @  http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/ and start from the beginning so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects  from our design team.  Cheery Lynn Designs will be giving a $20.00 prize to one random commenter on the Cheery Lynn Blog Hop Post. 




This is the front of the card. I just used a piece of patterned cardstock and layered the Fiona's Magic Mirror  and then the Alpine Flourish Doily on top. The butterflies are a couple of stickers.



Here is the best part. The inside with the 3-D Pop Up. The Pop Up Best Wishes die is easy to use. There are little notches in the dies.You just place these notches on the fold of your card to cut it.   These dies cut as well as score were they need to be folded. A tip is to cut them out and then use a rubber embossing matt and run it thru the die cutting machine again so the score lines are scored really good. Then you just valley or mountain fold on these score lines to get them to pop up. I layered another one of the Alpine Flourish Doily  to the inside of the card as well.

The Mayflower

A warm hello to you. Today I will share with you a guy card. I will be featuring one of Cheery Lynn Designs older dies called the Mayflower. This die is perfect for men's or even boy cards. 


I started this card with three layers of cardstock for the base.  I layered the Burlap Border across the center at a angle. This border is one of my favorite dies on men's cards. The Mayflower  I cut in two different colors and inked them up. I just love the detail in this ship. 



Here I layered the Sand dollar & Starfish as well as the Ship's Compass. The  Thank You was layered on the top corner. 

I thank You for visiting the blog today and hope I have inspired you to do a few men's cards. The men do really appreciate homemade card too. 

Have a wonderful craft day my friends.

Dragonfly Card

Happy New Year and all the best for 2018 to you. I hope you had a good holiday season with friends and family.


I found some dragon fly paper in my stash so I used some of it for my background . I then layered the Lilith Doily w/ Angel Wing Die in the center. I cut the Dragonfly and then colored it with ink a golds to match the paper. I used the angel wing in black to give the dragonfly a shadowed look. This is a very simple and quick, yet elegant card to make.

Reindeer Fun

A warm Hello to you. Glad to see you here today.


With the cozy red plaids and deer so popular this year for Christmas decorations I thought I would create a card using both.  I have inked, distressed and layered my background. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the  Winter Holiday Word  set. I added the snowflake from the Snowflake Set 2  set. The some holly leaves were added from the Holly Lace Flourish .



Now for this cute reindeer. I cut him out from the Reindeer Fun  set then layer different colors behind him and the trimmed him up abit.  It doesn't show in the photo but I popped him up quite a bit so he really stands out as my focal point.  Now this makes for a beautiful masculine card too.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and for all the comments you leave.
Have a great crafty day my friends.

Merry Christmas Wreath

A warm hello to you.  I am sharing this card using Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.


I wanted to create a card a bit more on the masculine side today. I did a lot of inking and distressing on the base, I then cut a stitched oval shape from the Oval Stitch and Cut tool .


I layer the Merry Christmas Pine  Partridge Sentiment  onto the oval. From the Fancy Reindeer  set I choose to use the jumping reindeer and the reindeer head to layer onto the card. This reindeer set has several dies in the set with beautiful detail as you can see. I layered a couple of holly leaves from the Holly Leaves  set. I finished them off with some glittery berries.  What a great masculine card using this reindeer set from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Patches the Snowman

Welcome  to the my blog.  This is a card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs.

I had some beautiful Bo Bunny paper for quite some time and when I came across it this morning I pictured CLD's  snowman and birds on it. So this is what I came up with.


This was a quick and simple card with just two die sets used. I layered a couple of birds onto the birch logs from the  Birds of Earth and Sky set.


Here is a close up of Patches the Snowman  . I really like the look I got with the snowman by cutting him out from a Snowy Christmas Tree scene that I had printed off my computer. Isn't he gorgeous. I think for being a quick and simple card that it turned out to be a beautiful rich looking card. .

Let It Snow

A warm Hello to you.  We got out first snow yesterday that has actually stayed on the ground so thought I would do a Let It Snow Card.


I have used the Square Classic - Silver Stackers  and  the Square Scalloped LG Stackers for my base. I was going for black and white but then decided to add just a touch of blue to set it off. I love the layers these stackers create.


Here I used  white paint and a tooth brush to splatter snow on black cardstock. It makes a perfect snowy  background to layer the Let It Snow  onto. This was a quick and simple card if you are short of time.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. Have a crafty day my friends.

Joy To The World


A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie back with you from Debbie's Time Out.Today I would like to share with you a way of using the Aspen Forest  frame from Cheery Lynn Designs as a embossing folder.



For the base of the card I used the Aspen Forest  on foil paper. To emboss it instead of cutting it I place a rubber embossing mat on top of the paper and it embosses instead of cutting. I then just added metal embossing powders  in copper, silver and gold and heat set them. I then added a bit of black ink to tone it down. What a beautifully embossed background this die made.


Here I layered the deer from the Fancy Reindeer set. The Joy To The World sentiment is one of the dies from the Joy to the World Wreath set. A piece of ribbon was layered along the bottom. This was a quick and simple  card for anyone wanting quick cards to give to that special person. I hope I have encouraged you to play with some of your dies to emboss with as well as cut with.

Snowman

A warm Hello to you. This is a card I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs inspirational blog.


The other day I was playing with a new Penny Black scenic stamp that I bought at a crop I was at last weekend. So this is the stamped scene that makes my background. As I was thinking about what do o for your inspiration I thought of this card I had previously stamped and thought how nice the new Cheery Lynn snowman would look in the scene.  He is absolutely perfect for this scene..

I popped  Patches the Snowman  up with foam spacers giving the card some dimension. I cut him in white and then his hat in black and then again in red for his hat band and scarf. I used some CTMH markers to add colors to all the beautiful stitching details on him.  I layered the Holly Corner  to the top corner and added some red glitter to the berries. I triple matted the card using the Rectangle Stitch and Cut tool  set . What a beautiful card stamped images and die cuts can make when using them together.

I thank you for visiting my blog today and for the comments you leave. Have a wonderful crafty day my friends.
