Cheery Lynn Just For You


Hi Everyone!  I just love these new Cheery Lynn Vintage dies!  For this card I used the new Distressed Honeycomb die.  I colored it with distress inks and used colors from the background paper.


The Just For You die along with the other dies with different sentiments are some of my favorite dies to use on cards.  They are beautiful on their own and easy to add accents to.  I die cut the flourishes twice to get two larger flourishes.  I cut the bottom off one and added the extra flourish I'd cut off in the right hand corner.  The flowers were made using two sizes of tea rose dies.  I added pearls to the centers.  To finish off the card I added a twine bow.

Cheery Lynn Vintage Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Cheery Lynn Veriloquent Vintage Blog Hop! I'm so excited to show you a few of Cheery Lynn's brand new Vintage Dies! If you arrived from Bonnie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to Cheery Lynn's blog HERE and start from the beginning. Make sure to answer the questions on the Cheery Lynn Blog for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate.


The base is  a 5.5" white folded card.  I cut through both of the folded layers using the French Flair LG Stacker.  I was careful to make sure I didn't completely cut through the top of the card so the folded top of the card was still connected.  I then cut another piece of 5.5" cardstock with the French Flair die and glued it to the top of the folded card.  I cut design paper with a smaller French Flair stacker and then adhered a Celtic French Flair Boutique Stacker turned in the opposite direction.


I used distress inks and metallic cream pastes to color the books.  To get the worn patina look I rubbed the pastes with my finger.  I added the Dusty Miller Frame Corners behind the center Celtic French Flair Boutique Stacker.  Because of the size and positioning they look like they are part of a larger design.

Cheery Lynn Birthday WIshes


Hi friends!  I'm back today sharing a birthday card.  Blue is one of my favorite colors and I thought I'd even match the Chrysanthemums.  The patterned card stock is double sided so I played around turning elements over to get the patterns to look best.  I really liked how the Chrysanthemums look cut from the matching patterned paper.  This is a small flower die set but it's a perfect size for cards and packs a big punch.


I used the Birthday Wishes Circle and cut a circle from the Circle Stitch and Cut Tool to add behind.  I really like the extra detailing the stitching adds on the circle.  The two larger Pierced Banners were cut using coordinating paper from the same pack.

Cheery Lynn Teacher Thanks


Hi, it's Jenny here today! I'm happy to be sharing a thank you card I created for my daughter's teachers.  Once I found the cute design paper in my stash and matched colors, this card was a snap to make.  I ended up making a few and they all came out slightly differently but I liked the colors on this one best and my daughter insisted we add the worm to her reading teacher's card.  


I cut the apple and backed it with white paper.  On this one I actually glued in the letters after but for a similar look and a faster card gluing another paper underneath gives a similar effect.  I double layered the ABC as well.  Much like the card I created in my last post I only used three dies.  The apple was adhered with foam tape for dimension.

Cheery Lynn Sunflower


Hi everyone!  It's Jenny here today hosting the blog.  I've been in a summer cardmaking mood lately and I wanted to play with my sunflower die and some new-for-me rust effect paints.  I cut four of the sunflowers adhering the layers together with foam tape.  The black centers were created using a black paint pen.  


Lately I'm using more black in my cards.  I love the striking contrast when using light accent colors. I sponged the flowers with distress ink, painted the petals with a shimmery acrylic and then brushed two colors of rust effect paint on top.  The thank you circle was just cut and colored with distress inks.

Cheery Lynn Grateful


Hi crafty friends! With Memorial Day past and the 4th of July coming up I've been in the mood to create patriotic projects. The focal point of this card is the star shaker.  It's a snap to create using the Cheery Lynn Star Shaker Set. I cut pieces of foam and clear acetate that came in the set to make the shaker, added in the sequins and voila!. I love the star for it's versatility, it's great for birthdays and celebration projects.


I used the Pierced Banners Die to cut the stamped sentiment but modified the shape.  To get the fishtail edge on both sides I rolled it halfway through my Big Sister, making sure to only cut the fishtail edge side.  I then flipped the die, lining up the pierced detail and rolled it through the machine again cutting the fishtail edge on the other side. The holes make this die easy to line up and recut.  This quick modification is anther way to get more out of your die.  The solid blue stars are from the Pierced Stars Set and I used a Square Stitch & Cut Tool to get the stitched edges.

Cheery Lynn Peace


 Hello everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the weekend and the extended holiday weekend if you're in the USA.  I was playing with color bursts on paper and instead of using the paper as a background I cut it with this beautiful paisley die.  


It cut so easily even though the paper was a little warped.  I use the same paper to cut the Peace die.  I thought the stitched rectangle worked well with the '60's vibe of the card.  I almost always add glitter or bling to my cards and this one was in need of a little more dimension so I glued purple rhinestones to the edge of the paisley.
