Authentique Paper Color Challenge

15 Oct

If you are here for my Cheery Lynn Designs NEW RELEASE  post click HERE.

Look at the new color combo Challenge up on the Authentique Blog.

I had a lot of fun with this card and loved the color combination.

I used paper from Wonder, Glowing and Splendid.  I also used an Icon from the brand new Gathering line.

I put lots of machine stitching and special touches in this card.

I just love trying to make each card I make a piece of art.

Now, I would love for you to head on over to the Authentique Paper blog and see what the other Design Team members have done for this challenge.

Join us, you could win an Authentique Paper prize pack…you can’t beat that!!

Cheery Lynn Altered Canvas

2 Sep
I found this little canvas at a craft store for $1.00 and knew it’d come in handy one day.

I decided to completely cover it and re-purpose the whole canvas.

I used lots of different styles of patterned paper, all from the Splendid line from Authentique Paper.

I also experimented with a lot of our border dies to create different flowers.

It seems that the accordion flower can be made with almost any border die and each border die gives a completely different look.

Don’t be afraid to experiment and use dies in non-traditional ways.
You might just stumble upon something you like!
Thanks for stopping by, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
The dies used in today’s project are:

Authentique Paper, where have you been my whole life?

9 Aug

Yes it is true, I have been a little on the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER soapbox lately!

If you have not tried their products, then you really do not know why I am so honored to be working with their products!

Genius is not too small of a word for some of their things!

A couple of reasons why I love Authentique Paper so much:

Quality – Sturdy and thicker that most paper, the prints are just fabulous and there are many palettes to choose from!

Design – I love that there is such a wide range within each line.

Products – My favorite has to be the Diction!  You know the little poetry magnets that you can buy?

Well these are similar, minus the poetry and minus the magnet but heavy on the miscellaneous words you can use on everything!

Here is what they look like:

You get all those word on this sturdy cardstock type sticker and there are so many different projects you can use these on!

I wanted to let you know of a tutorial I have done for Authentique Paper on 3 different cards using my favorite line called SPLENDID.

Here is a peak at the cards:
