Multi layers and flowers with Cheery Lynn Designs

2 Mar
I was visiting blogs the other day for Cheery Lynn Designs, Lots of Layers, challenge entries and one lady’s blog post really stayed in my mind.  She was talking about Cheery Lynn Designs challenge and said, “I can do layers.”
I thought that was so cute, and she did do a fabulous job on her entry too.  I felt the same way about the challenge this week, “I can do layers, (too!!)”
I have used a lot of dies and I do have a lot of layers, so brace yourself! I am also using some really great papers from MOMENTA.
To start, I took the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL cut it out in a patterned red, backed it with ad nice textured white and mounted that on a kraft card front.  I added some machine stitching, because I think it adds a lot of flair to a card.
Next, I took the SWEDISH SPRING OVAL and cut it out in a patterned blue and layered that on top of the lattice. Both the red and blue papers are from the 5 x 7 Cardstock Pad.
The last time I used the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL die, I thought all those cut out squared would make a cute something, I just didn’t know what.  But today when making my card, I knew they would make perfect flowers and mini pinwheels.
You can see my finished card here.  The stems and grass are made from paper from the 5 x 7 Textured Cardstock Combo Pad.
 I also used the basket from BUNNY IN BASKET, CUTIES 4, MEDIUM ROSE, DARLING DAISIES, LACE CORNER DECO D and DOTTIES RIC-RAC to complete this card.  The ladybugs are also from Momenta and are called Lady Bugs Dimensional Sticker.
The fluffy yellow flowers are made out of piece of tissue paper my 7yo brought home from school for me.  I made the yellow flowers with the MEDIUM ROSE and layered them on one of the DECO CORNERS.  The stems are made from DOTTIES RIC-RAC.
The mini pinwheels and pinwheel flower are made from the leftover squares from the FRENCH LATTICE SMALL as I mentioned above.
Here is a close up of the fluffy roses.
 The flowers in the basket are a combination of the leftover LATTICE squares and the
DARLING DAISIES . Just by layering a lot of the squares and daisies, I was able to make these adorable flowers.
Here is one more look at my card that I am sure you will agree has LOTS OF LAYERS.
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card I have come up with.  Be sure to join in on our challenge, like I have mentioned, the theme is LOTS OF LAYERS.
You can find all the details here.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!

New Dies From Cheery Lynn Designs **FAINT**

24 Feb
Today I am using the LACE OVAL REFLECTIONS die to make a unique banner.
To start out I cut a lot of ovals from the largest die in the LACE OVAL set.
I use the Sizzix Big Shot and I can still use the largest die, by folding my paper in half and cutting the shape.  I will have a fold line down the center, but for this project, that doesn’t matter.
Here you can my folded ovals, cut, still in half, and then I scored the ovals at 1/2″ increments.
Here are the same papers, opened up at their full size.
Can you believe how big those are and that I cut something that big from a Big Shot?
Once again, here the oval has just been cut, the paper in folded down the middle…
…voilà, here the same paper from above has been opened to it’s full size, it’s like magic!!
I am making 2 different shapes for my banner.  To make the flower shaped base, I need 3 of the largest ovals.
Here they are cut, and scored at 1/2″ increments.
Here the same ovals are, folded accordion style on the scored lines.
Fold the accordion folded ovals in half.
Hot glue the centers of each oval.
Then hot glue the 3 ovals together, they will look something like this.
Fan the outer edges open to meet each other on the other side and hot glue the remaining edges to form the flower shape.
The other banner shape I created is a butterfly shape.  For the butterfly you will need 2 ovals, folded, scored and glued in the same manner as the flower shapes.
Because we I only have 2 ovals, when I flair the ovals around to glue, the ovals create this butterfly shape instead of the flower shape.
To string all the shapes, I cut a paper towel tube up and glued them to the back of each shape.
After embellishing the fronts, I strung 2 layers of tulle through all the shapes to create the SPRING banner.
To embellish the fronts, I used the SWEDISH SPRING OVAL in the centers of each shape.
I had some large letters that I used to spell the word SPRING and then added lots of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers from The Floral Shop.
All the bright and Cheery paper is from Momenta.
Here you can see the letters more close up.
I just love all the colors and patterns!
Here is one last look!
I hope you have enjoyed this post today.
Hopefully you can see just how versatile the REFLECTIONS dies are.
You can just do anything with these dies, at least it seems like that to me!
Have you checked out or current challenge?
The theme is FRAME IT.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

22 Feb
Hello??  Is there anyone out there?  I hope so, because…I stayed up late creating a mini masterpiece to show you all today.
I am using one of the new release stamps by {ippity} called:
Sucks to Get Old
I wanted to show you that these duos are so wonderful, and you don’t have to get hung up on the phrase that your image comes with.  #1, the phrase and image are 2 different stamps and #2, because they are 2 different stamps you can mix an match and the possibilities are endless.
For this project, I only used the Image, the lollipop.
I paper pieced it using my brand new, super dee duper, Momenta Cardstock Paper.
For the phrase, I used some letter stickers from my Momenta Super Paper Pad.
I took the time to make sure that the candy jar still looked cute even after the tag was removed.
Sometimes it’s the little touches that make a projects really stand out.
I also wanted to show you I fixed my annoying error from my project last week.
I put a lot of time and effort into this card and took the pictures and while editing the pictures it hit me that I should have made the card front so it opens while holding it as a rainbow shape.
So, I took it apart and fixed my error and I am so much happier with this card now.
I had a giveaway for this and my wonderful friend, Donna, is the lucky recipient of this colorful card.
This card was made with the stamp set called:
Friendship Rainbow
I hope you have liked my projects today!  Check out my blog post today…I am giving away the TAG from the Candy Jar project…so you know the drill:

Momenta Projects as Momenta’s July 2011 Guest Designer

23 Jul

  Today I am posting as the July Guest Designer for Momenta.com.  They were very generous with the items they sent me to create with.

My items were all made with the kit called SIMPLY PERFECT.

I have made quite a few things to show you and I still have TONS of paper and embellishments left over.

First I made a festive seasonal decoration.

This could go on a mantle, counter or on a table as a centerpiece.

For the lettering that spells out SUMMER, I used the MY MOMENTA create-your-own stickers.

I downloaded the template  and was able to use some festive digital paper I had on hand by designer Crystal Wilkerson.

Here is a close-up of my button flowers, I just love them. 

I made a sweet little summer scene with the cardstock stickers.   

The scene is made within a 4 inch bottle cap that Maya Road makes. 

Oh, and what about that green trim from my MAY Tally Scapper’s Kit?  Isn’t it perfect with this paper line?

When my little kids saw this, they both were just amazed that I made it and wanted to know if I was magic!

Next, I made a trio of cards to show that the  Simply Perfect kit is very versatile. 

Have you tried embossing your patterned paper?  I love doing this! 

My new thing now is using tiny paper clips to add more embellishments. 

Oh and of course, do not forget to add buttons and polka dots!

The cardstock stickers  are wonderful for my card making moments.

I really love how all 3 of these cards turned out.

Here they all are!

For my last project(s), I found these MDF frames at my local Ben Franklin.

Using the 12×12 papers, I mixed and matched the papers for background and then built scenes to go along with the color and theme of the paper.

Aren’t these colors so bright and happy?

The lettering that came in the kit was perfect!

You have to love how those glasses sparkle, thank to GRAFIX ART and their fabulous product called FUNKY FILM

Oooh, I just love everything about how this turned out!

Of course if I make one for the 4 yo, I have to make one for the 7 yo too! 

Using the same paper line, I was able to make a boyish frame too!  Thank you Momenta

 Aren’t the colors the best?  The embellishments in this line are just so fun to work with.

 I just love the vibrant look of the finished products.

Here the frames are side by side. 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have made with Momenta wonderful products.  

You especially have to go check out the Do it Yourself Stickers.  What a fabulous idea.  Can you imagine being able to make your own stickers and have them match any layout in the world?  That is possible when you make your own.  So be sure to go on over and check out everything Momenta.com has to offer.
