Australian Cheer from Cheery Lynn Designs

16 Sep
Yesterday was the Cheery Lynn Design new release post.  Did you go over and see all the projects done with the new dies?
Here is the link to see them:
 Well I am going to continue the party with some more new releases.
Today’s card is a cheerful card for a special Australian I have in mind.
I can’t remember what this card shape is called, some sort of fancy fold.
It is a card and envelope all in one. (Not a mailing envelope though!)
This is a side view of it all folded up.
Here, I have laid it down and I am starting to open up the card.
This is the first part of the card you see when you open up the front of the card.
This here is a view of the inside.
Are you keeping up?  The card says, En”joey” your day!
Here I am starting to fold it up again.
I fold the left side in first.
Then I fold in the right side, which is also the card front.
Last step is to tuck the top in to a pocket behind the main picture, and it stays together all by itself.
Isn’t that a great design?
I love it!
I hope you like this card and design.  I had a ton of fun making it.
The new dies I used today are:

Now if you’d be so kind as to hop on to my post for the 2nd annual Paper Issues Blog Hop,

Trio of Cards with Cheery Lynn Designs

8 Jul
Every once in awhile I do my projects for a blog post and I want to explode with excitement because I am so happy with how my things turned out!
This is one of those times.
I was challenged to use dies I have not used in awhile..well I decided to use a die I have never used before! The die is called: FISH.
Here is phase 1 of my card: I could have stopped here, what do you think?

Initially I was going to have fish strung across the front, but it covered up the beautiful abstract background I had just made.

So I settled for enhancing and complimenting the background instead.

Using wire and glass beads, I kept with the ROYGBIV color scheme and created this mini masterpiece.

I just love how this turned out!

I had all these ideas for this simple die, so I kept going.

I have a blast looking up different quotes for cards I have in mind.

This one I came upon quite by accident. I was having my 16yo help look up fish quotes and I did not like any he was finding, so I told him never mind and let him know he was “Off the hook,” and well I laughed out loud, because I thought hey..I can make a card with that!

Remember on my 1st card I said I had the idea to string the fish along the front?

Well, this is what I meant. See how they would have covered the whole background of the 1st card?

This would be a fun card to make for a friend having a bad day.

Nice bright colors to cheer someone up and this is what the inside says:

Amazingly, I only used a couple of dies with these cards. The FISH die is a fun die as it has that outline that can stand alone. There are many other dies like this. To see them all, here is the link, they are called LAYERING CHARMS:
I hope I was able to show you how fun this simple die can be, go and check out the other shapes in this family of dies.
This has been Jeannie with THE POLKA CABANA with today’s cards.

Just one more “how do you think I did” for today, I promise!!  Tomorrow is a new day, so I can make no guarantees about what I am doing then, but for today…THIS IS REALLY IT!!

I had told you about Tuesday Trio, I have done 2 challenges so far.  I botched the 2nd challenge which was supposed to be HAPPY.

What was I thinking to put “I MISS YOU” on that HAPPY PANDA card???  Oh well, I made it up with this challenge!

Here is the sketch I worked off of:

The EXTRA CHALLENGE this week was to use NO, PINK, RED or ORANGE!!  I can confidently tell you, I used NONE of those colors! (Unless I am color blind!)

BUT, I did break the rules.  Hopefully that is ok.  I interpreted the sketch like this:

Here is my card!!

Warmer Lighting.  I never know what looks best!

If you  leave a comment, tell me, is the COOL WITH FLASH better or the WARM WITHOUT FLASH better??

Head over to Tuesday Trio to see the other submissions for this sketch.  It is so much fun to see how others interpreted the sketch.

I will be back with more fun stuff…..WHO KNOWS WHEN??????

ROYGBIV, I love you!!

6 Aug

I have to tell you, seeing the colors of the rainbow all lined up, makes me giddy.  I mean I feel a surge of happiness just looking at something based on the simple colors of a rainbow.  I entered a swap for some ATC cards.  I needed to create the cards based something that is ME!  I have NEVER done these before..so I just made mine like a mini card.  I found a wonderful phrase to go with my design and of course, I added some POLKA DOTS and voilà, here is my finished project!

I found this wonderful product on ETSY.  I think the commercial name for them is DEW DROPS.  They make any project sparkle and add a little pizzaz.  I have tried to take a close up so you can see them.

You can really see the 3D effect on this one.  Such a happy project!

Can you believe I made 20 of those?  They were A LOT of work.  All the scraps are sewn first, then I sewed all the flower/button accessories, added sparkle, dew drops and polka dots!!  Lots of love in these.  I really enjoyed making them!

In the next few days I can reveal my PK GLITZ design team projects, I have to wait for them to post them, then I can show you!!  I also have to show you another finished project, the one I was calling the “MANTEL PROJECT”  It is done..pictures soon!!  Let me know how you like the ATC’s!!!!
