Fathers Day with Cheery Lynn Designs, Canvas Corp & 7 gypsies

15 Jun
Since Father’s day is just a couple of days away, I wanted to make a special card for the man many children in my house call DAD!!
I am using lots of things from Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies.
I used the 7 gypsies stamp sets called Numero and Ephemera.
I am so in love with these 2 stamp sets!  You will be seeing me use them a lot in the upcoming months!
The Numero set has so many fun surprises, I had a blast using that set for this card!
You can see that I took the die called Window C and used it as my focal point.  The Window not only worked as my base but also worked for me to clip the bits and pieces of embellishments to the card with the red Canvas Corp mini clothespins.
I backed the frame with the Zig Zag border and used the leftover scraps from cutting the Lace Light Deco Border.  As you can see, the leftovers work like a mini banner.
I have the banner hanging from some red waxed cotton Canvas Corp Cord.
I used the Scalloped Square set for my tags that you see hanging with the clothespins.
All of the paper you see is from Canvas Corp.  Their paper is well, do you have a lifetime so I can tell you about how much I LOVE IT???
All in all…..
I love the way this card turned out.  It is truly a one of a kind card and thanks to the supplies that I used it is also personalized with dates and phrases that will be meaningful to the recipient.
I hope you have a great weekend.  Enjoy your fathers, brothers, grandpas, sons or whomever you share your weekend with.

Cheery Lynn Designs May 2012 New Release Dies

15 May

Well, it is time again to shout to the world that Cheery Lynn Designs has another set of incredibly tempting dies that are being released to the public today!

We have lace and fairies and alphabets and fish and flowers and leaves and so much more!

For the card below, I am using  the following new dies:

KOI FISH and LOWERCASE LACE SCRIPT.

I have also used ECCENTRIC CIRCLES EMBOSSING PLATE and WITTLE WEAVERS.

I used a play on the word KOI with my card.

The front reads “Let’s be KOI”

This is the inside, a quote that a friend had sent me and it worked perfectly for the inside of my card.

One last look.

For this card, I am using the fabulous new release die called: WINDOW C.

I had so much fun with this die.

My scene is peaking through the window, as you can see.

A closer look at the beach scene.

Instead of just using this as a window, I created a door/shutter effect by opening up the window down the middle.

When the front is opened it reveals the whole scene and the phrase.

I used the AT THE BEACH die for the inside of the card.

Here it is all tied up again.

This last project is made with a CHUNKY CANVAS from no other than the divine CANVAS CORP.

The new release dies I have used are: ONE FREE WISH and FLOURISH LEAF STRIP.

The other dies I used are :  WITTLE WEAVERS and MEDIUM ROSE.

I just love this.  It is not my normal color scheme, but it is one of my favorite things I have made.

As always, I drew inspiration from the little image in the bottom right by Mary Engelbreit.

I did lots of paper piecing on the ONE FREE WISH to create a truly one of a kind image.

Now I am just giving you a sampling of the new dies.  To see the whole New Release, be sure to head on over to Cheery Lynn Designs.com.

I would love for you to see what other things our Design Team has come up with, so be sure to go check out the inspiration from our blog.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by, get on over and see the fun stuff in the store and on the blog!

A “Dreamy” Card

25 Apr
Hello and happy Wednesday to everyone!!  Today I have a card of all cards to share today!
I am using this awesome sketch that Mojo Monday has up.  Sketch # 238.

 

I am using the set called Dream a Little Dream.
I don’t know if you can really see all the detail in this card but…
I have just started learning some new techniques in one of Christy Tomlinson’s online classes.
Although I do not have a lot (if any) of the supplies she uses, I improvised on this card.
Also, I made the card out of a piece of transparency paper, so it is really a unique card!
So there you have it…my attempt to WOW you all today!!  How did I do?
I had such a fun time making this card and I hope you enjoyed my post today.
