Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs New Easter Dies

9 Mar
We are getting ready to have our new release party soon, but thought you might like to see what is in store for you.
I am using a TON of dies today.
I am also using a sketch from Mojo Monday.
You can go and check out the EASTER NEW RELEASE dies HERE.
I have used the following NEW EASTER DIES:
 Even though these are EASTER dies, look what you can make…a hot air balloon!
 I used the FRENCH PASTRY DOILY & ANGEL WING to go along with our current challenge which is DOILIES.  You can read about the challenge here.
Other dies I used are:
LACE CORNER DECO F – for the leaves on my flowers on the basket.
DANCING DOILY LACE BORDER – the white paper lace.
DOTTIES RIC RAC – the lighter brown ric rac piece.
FLOWER CHAIN BORDER – flowers on the basket and on the yellow border chain with flowers.
BLACK EYED SUSANS – the embossing plate for the brown background paper.
I am pretty sure that is all the dies used.  I have used ECHO PARK’S paper called THIS & THAT, such a gorgeous line!
By now you should know that I love thinking of unusual things to do with shapes meant for other things.  The reason I do this?  I love to show you just how much you can do with dies and supplies if you just think…outside the “Easter basket!”
I hope you have enjoyed my post today..I had a ton of fun making this!
Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

7 Mar

I am still making my way through my NEW stamps from I Heart {ippity}.

I have so much fun working with these stamps!  It is never a chore and they are such crisp and clean images to use!

Today I am using the itty bitty set called:


Here is my card.  Oh GOODNESS I love it!

Here is the inside of the card.

 Here is a side view.

I am using papers from the Echo Park THIS AND THAT GRACEFUL line.

While writing this post and looking at this card it made me question my creative abilities.  I mean I love this card, it’s GORGEOUS, but then I part of me thought, it’s the paper,   it’s the stamps, not me!  Certain stamps, like {ippity}, and paper companies just have such gorgeous images and lines, is it possible to make something unappealing with them?

That is my wonder, question thought for the week!

What do you think?

I will be linking this up to the Hippity with Ippity Sketch challenge.

You can find the sketch HERE:

Since they are using a Split Coast Stampers Sketch, I will post in my gallery there too!


  If you post to Split Coast Stampers, be sure to put the “SC349” in your keywords.
