Cheery Lynn Designs Tuesday

18 Jan

This is another installment of Valentines and Leaves.  I had shared with you that Cheery Lynn Designs just released their newest set of dies, DIMENSIONAL LEAVES in my Saturday post. 

I keep thinking of things to do with these leaves to use them beyond being LEAVES.  I think it is very important to use items to their full capacity.  Hopefully my cards today will show you some examples of what I mean. 

We will start with the Valentine’s card.  Who’d have thought to make a Valentine from leaves?…..umm…………..  ME!!

Here is a close up.  I used a metal Piercing plate to create texture on my papers.  In addition to creating texture, the Piercing plate created all these holes that allowed me do all the hand stitching on this card.  The holes made it easy to just feed the needle right where I wanted to.  No punctured fingers for me on this project since the holes make hand stitching so easy.

Next, I will show you how I used the leaves to create a background for this colorful RAINBOW card.

I created a lot of detail and dimension on this card with dies, paint, and paper layering.

Isn’t that little Philippe Pea from Veggie tales the cutest?

Well, head on over to Cheery Lynn Designs.  They have some fun contests going.  Chances to win free product from the Cheery Lynn Designs Store.  They are also showing some of their new releases as they gear up to go top CHA down in Los Angeles!

Mixing and matching all these dies is so much fun, you should really try it sometime!!

Products used on these cards: Jean Claude and Philippe Pea, Dimensional Small Leaves #1, Dimensional Large Leaves #2, Lady Bug Frame, Scalloped Rectangle, Scalloped Oval, Scalloped Square, Buttons1 and Optimistic 1/2″ Tall Upper/Lower Case.

    These cards are adorable! I love the VeggieTales one, my boys LOVE that show. My mother in law has an extra die-cut machine and told me over a month ago that she was going to mail it up to me. I’m anxious to try it out, better remind her about it!

    Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day!
