Some things older but new to all of you!

16 Mar
Do you wonder what  my title means?
Well I just realized, I have 3 cards that I have made for Cheery Lynn Designs and I have never blogged about them here yet.
So you are going to get a treat today since I am sharing 3 for the blog post of 1!
I made these cards as submissions to a publication.  Two of these got chosen, so I was very excited!  The publication has come and gone, so I am sharing these now.
This was a card I made for the Easter holiday.
I just love the background on this.
I used the Wittle Weavers and Stitcher Plate Large Circle for the background.
The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
 The “sun” was made from the Sunflower and Scalloped Circle Dies.
The butterflies are made from Exotic Butterflies Small 2 dies.
I love using those Wittle Weaver’s for the background of cards.
 This card was made for a theme called Haberdashery and Dress Making.
I used the Wood Grain Embossing Plate for the background.
The dress is made from layers of paper cut with the Anastasia Border.  Behind the dress I used the Ribbon Eyelet Border and Buttons 1.
 Lastly I used the scallops from the Border Carnival for my corners and also used the following dies to finish off this card.  Optimistic Font 1/2″, Pretty Petals and Zig Zag Ric Rac.
Lastly I have this simple but elegant card!  Oh and it happens to match our current challenge which is Add A Flourish.  Have you entered yet?
For this card, I used my favorite embossing plate, Black Eyed Susans.
I also used the following dies on this card:  Zig Zag Ric RacRibbon Eyelet Border, Fanciful Flourish and Medium Rose.
So there you go, 3 cards that would be perfect for holidays we have coming up!
Easter April 8th.
Mothers Day May 13th.
National Sewing Day July, 17th.
Once again, be sure to check out the details to our Add A Flourish challenge, HERE.

Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs New Easter Dies

9 Mar
We are getting ready to have our new release party soon, but thought you might like to see what is in store for you.
I am using a TON of dies today.
I am also using a sketch from Mojo Monday.
You can go and check out the EASTER NEW RELEASE dies HERE.
I have used the following NEW EASTER DIES:
 Even though these are EASTER dies, look what you can make…a hot air balloon!
 I used the FRENCH PASTRY DOILY & ANGEL WING to go along with our current challenge which is DOILIES.  You can read about the challenge here.
Other dies I used are:
LACE CORNER DECO F – for the leaves on my flowers on the basket.
DANCING DOILY LACE BORDER – the white paper lace.
DOTTIES RIC RAC – the lighter brown ric rac piece.
FLOWER CHAIN BORDER – flowers on the basket and on the yellow border chain with flowers.
BLACK EYED SUSANS – the embossing plate for the brown background paper.
I am pretty sure that is all the dies used.  I have used ECHO PARK’S paper called THIS & THAT, such a gorgeous line!
By now you should know that I love thinking of unusual things to do with shapes meant for other things.  The reason I do this?  I love to show you just how much you can do with dies and supplies if you just think…outside the “Easter basket!”
I hope you have enjoyed my post today..I had a ton of fun making this!
Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
