Easter Baskets With Lisa Blastick


Hi! It's still February but who is ready for Spring! 
Here is Arizona it is been pretty nice, but I watch the weather and it appears that winter is still here almost everywhere else...
So, here is a springtime project you can make pretty easy using lots of 
Cheery Lynn Designs Die Cuts. 
Fun little Easter baskets using "Scalloped Party Favor Box".


I have been checking out the little box for some time now and I finally decided to make baskets with them. I cut the favor box in kraft and then stamped a basket pattern on top with brown ink. The handle is "siena double edge border" and was also cut in kraft paper.


I debated between chocolate bunnies and white "bunnies"? White bunny won...because of the basket color...but there are so many options. Little google eyes are a must for me. I used the smallest flower from "floral bouquet kit" in teal and purple with gala glitz in the centers.


Lastly, 2 sets per basket of the "flourish 13" Love that leaf die cut!


Here is the back of the "favor box" I added some green grass in the centers. 
Candy of your choice! Great gift to pass out...


Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!
Hugs Lisa

Maggi Sharing a Sweet Card


Love love love this image from Maja Designs Summertime collection. It is just perfect to dress up with some Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts!

I started with a white card base (4 3/4" x 6") and topped that with a pretty floral print diecut with Royal Scandinavian Boutique Stacker A2 Frame 4 Piece Die Set.  Then I added a pretty dotted scalloped layer cut with A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped 7 Piece Die Set.

Of course for this sweet feminine card, I need flowers so I made a rose with the Medium- Rose 7 Piece Die Set.  I love that die set because it cuts all the pieces you need to make a flower at once.  The larger flower is made with the Judy's Blooms Die.   I cut some flourishes with Flourish #11 Die and tucked pieces of that around my flowers.  I cut a tiny tag for my sentiment using the smallest die from the Pierced Stacker 2 - 6 Piece Die Set.


Then, a cheerful seam binding bow, just sets it all off.

Sweet Bunny Birthday Card with Cheryl Walker

 
 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!!
Today's card was designed for Cheery Lynn Design using the beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs . I wanted my card to have a Spring feel, and this delivers just that :) It was also created for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge this week, to create a Birthday, wedding, baby, or some kind of occasion card. Mine is a Birthday & Spring! hehehe
On my card I used lots of darling dies from Cheery Lynn, and I am loving them all on this one!!! I also used The Project Bin sentiment stamp from the set called "Born Yesterday" this set is all about Birthdays!

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies( brown polka dot) I also added a bow, flower, and viva pearl pen to this cutie
B682 Quadrafoil Tag , cut using the Pink hearts design paper.
LPC4 Circle Pierce set cut out brown card stock, and tree dp from Pebbles
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily, cut out in white card stock and layered on card front
B180 Princess Tree , cut out in green card stock, and matching design paper, and layered. I also added some flowers , and branches to this one.
B216 Wreath Strip used as branches under the tree for a filler

I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out. I love all the layers and colors, it's perfect for a spring birthday!

The tree was super fun to work with, and I will have to do another of this one soon! I love the wreath strip pieces behind it, as it gives some dimension and fills in. I added the little hearts in the design paper, I thought it would be cute. I lastly added some flower embellishments to this!

My Big Bow was created using Really Reasonable Ribbons February Ribbon monthly kit. I also used some RRR for the bunny bow. LOVE how cute this bunny is! All embellishments are also from RRR.

Sewing was done using a very light pink thread and my sewing machine.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think, I truly enjoy reading them!

Hugs to all,
Cheryl

Indie Bouquet by Laurie Schmidt



Hi everyone!

 Laurie here sharing a card I made with some of the dies from the new January release. I'm loving this  Bohemian set. Especially the flowers...they are so fun!

I started out with the rectangle stitch and cut tools, and made 2 inlaid frames. I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added a few sequins for a bit of bling.






The flowers are cut out with the new Indie Bouquet dies, and I added some leaves from the Mehndi Botanical set. 
The foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit, which is a super addition to add to your collection of dies. It goes so well with ANY flower arrangement, and also has 2 flowers that come with it. I'm finding I'm reaching for it all the time, especially now that I have started to make more spring cards. Flowers are so cheerful when snow is still on the ground...it's fun to think about spring!




 I LOVE the detail on the flowers and the leaves, and added some enamel dots to the centers.








Here's the list of Cheery Lynn dies I used:

Mehndi Botanicals 2 set  B863

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!

Thinking of You Bee Card by Cherry Nelson

Hi there Cheery Lynn Peeps. Cherry here today at the blog.  I have a cute little card for you today.  I thought if I make enough Spring /Summer cards, the warmer seasons will magically appear.  Isn't that how it works?  
 Isn't this Bee Die cute?  I love him.  I cut him out twice and layered him for a shadow effect.
 I layered him on pattern papers and a Honeycomb Lattice Die.
I added back in a few of the "honeycombs" for fun.  I then added washi tapes and my 'Thinking of You' sentiment that I backed with black to make it pop.  Very easy fun card to create to give to someone special!  Thanks for visiting, Cherry

Blue & Gold by Jenny Alia


Hi crafty friends!  It's Jenny here today sharing a centerpiece project I made using Cheery Lynn dies. All of my school-aged children are in scouting and the big cub scout anniversary dinner blue & gold is typically held around February in our pack.  I am helping out this year by creating centerpieces.  


The theme of this year's dinner is Western and I thought the new Mandela Doily die looked similar to designs I've seen on bandanas.  These centerpieces are essentially card toppers or simple lollipop cards.  I taped skewers to the backs of each and then finished the backs by gluing another piece of card stock, sandwiching the skewer in the middle.  I added sand to the bottoms of mason jars so the skewers would stay positioned in the direction I wanted. 


Before assembling, I used a makeup sponge and distress ink to age the edges with a little ink.  The distressing helped tie the blue and gold colors with the western theme.  After I adhered the skewers to the stars, I thought they'd be great done in pink for a girl's birthday and could double as wands.

With Love 10 Minute Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning everyone. 
Today it's me Amy here to share a simple & easy 10 minute card with you. I only used two colors pink and black to make this card which are great colors to combine. I cut out the XL-2 Square Scalloped in two different sizes and layered a pink square just a little smaller on top of that and lifted it with foam tape.

With Love: 
Then I cut out the cute flowers times two and used seven of them on my middle part of my card {the lower part}. In the centers of those flowers I added a flat back crystal gem in pink and a black silk ribbon just above the flowers. After that I cut out the word love from the Bohemian collection in black and in pink and layered them on top of each other and slightly moved the pink one to the left and also inked the edges of the pink one. Then I used the little word "with" as a rub on to the L of the word love to complete my card.

A Boho Hello by Julie Lavalette


Hello Cheery Lynn fans, it's JULIE here today and I am sharing some inspiration using our amazing new Dies from the Bohemian Collection on my card.


I love this new Hippie Herione, all the added details and size of this die cut make a great impact on any card or scrapbook layout. I cut her out in white card stock colouring her in with Copic Pens and mounted a layer of dark brown cardstock behind her hair for extra shading. I finished her off with feathers, a flower and bling.


My sentiment was layered 3 times with a drop shadow effect, I mounted onto my Pierced Stackers with an accent of my Mandala Doily in White Cardstock.

Adding lots of flowers, leaves and bling to finish my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Crafty Hugs, 
Julie x

Tic-Tac-Toe Valentine Card by Debbie Brownmiller

A warm Hello to you. It is Debbie hosting the blog today from Debbie's Time Out. Today I am going to share a valentine card with you.



I created a tic-tac-toe board and placed the Sweetheart Candy on it. The frames for the tic-tac-toe board were created using the Burlap Border . The line down the blue hearts was also cut from the Burlap Border .


I inked and layered the cute little Be Mine Teddy Bear on the corner. He is just too cute.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card and that it has given you inspiration for some of your Valentine cards. Thanks for stopping by the blog today and for the comments you leave. They are always appreciated. Wishing you a wonderful day.

Love with Lisa Blastick


Hi! Welcome back to my latest card for Cheery Lynn Designs
Do you feel the Love in the air? Well it's almost Valentine's Day and I'm hoping you have someone special in your life to spend the day or evening with...a loved one, a child, or even your pet. 


I used 4 different dies to make this card. I was thinking distressed edges with stitching would look kind of cool. So I sewed the rectangles and the squares. The banner is one of my all time favorites and the hearts are super detailed...had to do three. Stamped in red ink are the sentiment and the hearts. A bit of bling and ta da! Done! 



Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day and weekend!
Hugs Lisa
