Cheery Lynn Celebrate!

 Hello and Happy New Year!  It's so cold here in NY and I've been dreaming of sun.  I was planning on using these crocs to create a mardi gras card but my idea just wasn't coming together.  Instead I changed gears and made this.    

The card is an A2 size.  I stamped celebrate and cut it out using the tag die.  The tag was glued to black card stock and the black mat was hand cut.  The tag and the top light blue panel were popped up using foam adhesive to add dimension.  All the die cuts were colored using distress ink.  I added black rhinestones for eyes.

Happy New Year! - Best of 2017

Welcome and Happy New Year!  For the past three years I've created a "Best Of" post featuring twelve projects. I'm continuing the tradition with 12 of my favorite cards and one tag from 2017. You can check out the previous "Best Of" posts from 2016,  2015 and 2014 by clicking the years. 

All these projects exclusively use Cheery Lynn Designs dies. I'm so happy and grateful to be part of the Cheery Lynn Design Team and I look forward to more crafting with these gorgeous dies.

Here's my favorite non-card project from this year!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I wish you and yours a happy and healthy New Year!

Cheery Lynn Feliz Navidad

Good morning!  I made a number of gift tags this Christmas.  This was quick to construct but with the colors and gorgeous font of the Feliz Navidad die, it dresses up simple gifts perfectly.  The holly is part of the same die set and with a little bending of the edges of the leaves the leaves really spring to life.  I popped the circle up using foam adhesive for extra dimension and added snowflakes and red pearls for holly berries.

Cheery Lynn Good Things

Hi friends!  I'm sharing a new card I created.  I wanted to try to make a simple card but decorative at the same time.  I kept things simple but added in patterned paper for some added interest.

The leaves are beautiful and large so they really add impact on a project.  I stamped the sentiment  and then cut it out .  This die has a cut out center so words are easy to line up.

Cheery Lynn For Someone Special

Hi Everyone! I'm back today with a quick card.  I don't use a lot of patterned paper on my cards and I love how my DT sisters use it.  I chose blues and yellows that I tend to gravitate towards and started layering from there.

Cheery Lynn Flower Power Blog Hop!

Hi friends, it's Blog Hop time again and this month we're showcasing flowers! There are so many gorgeous projects in this Cheery Lynn Designs Hop, so make sure to click the links below to see them all.  If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to the Cheery Lynn blog HERE and start from the beginning.  

I use these poinsettia flowers so much but wanted to show them off in white.  I tend to use traditional colors on holiday cards but I thought I would do something different. I found this background paper and it was a perfect excuse to use purple.  I hope you like the result.  I added a glitter snow paste to the flowers and cut the Merry Christmas twice and over-layed the green die cut over the purple so the swirls and flourishes would be green.

Cheery Lynn Hugs & Mugs

Hi friends, I hope you are enjoying the weekend!  Now that Thanksgiving has passed, my children have been asking for hot chocolate and cookies.  We're working on holiday decorating and these dies popped out at me while I was figuring out what to create.  

I backed the gingerbread cookies with white paper, used two different colors behind the mug and popped up all three using dimensional foam tape.  I added a few clear rhinestones on the centers of the snowflakes and glitter glue on the words.
