Cheery Lynn MN cards


Hi everyone!

I made this set of MN cards last summer with some of my friends and forgot all about posting them..so I'm sharing them now.


The MN die is from Cheery Lynn, they sell all the states, I have ND also. They even sell the countries, I'll have to try some cards with those sometime...how fun Norway would be for my relatives!

For the MN cards we used some fun patterned paper and the fishing die from Taylored Expressions Little Bits. The sign is also from Cheery Lynn.

So easy and simple to make..and people love to receive them.

 I guess it's time to make some more...

I made a couple of beach scene cards using several of my favorite Cheery Lynn summer dies. Nothing says summer to me like spending some time in the sun with my toes in the sand at the beach!

For my beach scene, I started out by making the water, sand and frame with the scalloped rectangle stackers.  I added a whimsical sun and cloud, and the palm tree with surf boards and bits of grass from the Surfs Up Set. The cute lil flower on the surf board is cut out from the Doily Companion Oval set. The Beach set has 6 fun pieces in all......the chair, a beach ball, suntan lotion,waves,umbrella and sunglasses. 






Here's the same card, but I changed up the colors and sentiment:

I did alot of splattering with some white paint and a tooth brush for this card. It was fun but a bit messy.... LOL!



The wreath is from Cheery Lynn, and the sled from Memory Box. I decorated it with a bell from Jillian Vance, and a bow from Cheery Lynn. The sentiment is from CAS-Fridays Snowy Sayings.

Die R Us Shaped Cards


The challenge at Dies R Us to make a shaped card. So fun!

Grab our Badge!


 I chose to make an apron card...you can find the template here.  I added some red gingham paper, and black gingham ribbon. Then I dug into my box of brads and found some little tiny pans for the pocket that I thought would look cute.





The row of utensils is from Taylored Expression. I cut one out in red and another in black to give it some depth. Then I tucked a card inside with a little bits grill sitting on some grass, also from Taylored Expression.



Here's a list of the dies I used:

Taylored Expression Grass Border

Cheery Lynn Birdcage for The Paper Players


Hi everyone!

Today Claire is hosting a bright and cheerful color challenge at The Paper Players:



I used all Cheery Lynn dies for my card. I started out with some neutral gray for the birdcage, the flower in turquoise, and the leaves in pear.

I played around with my alcohol inks using a red and orange for the bird. It looks more red then orange after it dried though!

The sentiment is from Poppystamps stamped in black called, "Grateful Heart."
