Just Bee-cause With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome back to a new card using Cheery Lynn Designs! Today's card is all about the new fabulous distressed honeycomb....I printed up the bee off the blog and fussy cut it out twice...One bee was a bit larger and then I just made the second bee a bit smaller. 

The sunflower was cut out in yellow twice and once in white. I die cut the center of the yellow sunflowers in black. They all have a shiny coat in the center using diamond glaze. I then printed up the sentiment and ran it though the printer on yellow cardstock. I used the smallest of fishtail banners for my sentiment. 

Closer view....and some white pearls for the finishing touch. 


Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great weekend!

Veriloquent Vintage "Blog Hop" With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome to our Blog Hop this month with an amazing new release called "Veriloquent Vintage"
There are so many beautiful die cuts you will want them all! 
If you are coming for Julies Blog you are on track. 

Here is my card for an adorable baby girl. I used 5 die cuts to make this 5 x 6 card. 
I LOVE how every die cut is so detailed and delicate. 

I used some pop dots under the baby buggy (pram) and scrolls. I die cut out the fence on the front of the card and one for the inside. 

I die cut the buggy in pink and then die cut the top in white then layered the two pieces together . Tiny pearls on the buggy (pram) to give it that extra something 

The corners are gorgeous! I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added more pearls to the crown.
Its perfect for the little princess!

Cute as a Button With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi everyone! Welcome back to a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs! I wanted to make a card for a little boy using mostly buttons. I then decided to make it a fun shaker card by using some pierced circles too. It was inspired by a friend who brought her son to work for all of us to oooh and aaah! Adorable baby! 

The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment was printed on the computer. I added some fun shaker beads (red and teal) in the center to match the paper. 

There are pop dots behind the buttons for a 3D effect.

Life is Better.... With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome back to another fun card with Cheery Lynn Designs! Im so ready for the beach...I can't get it off my I decided to use the fun "flip flops and board shorts" as the main focus. The Z fold card was made using a 5 inch by 12 inch piece of paper in blue. Then I cut it at the angle at 2.5 inches. 

The sand is kraft paper and I fussy cut the hills. I added the wave edger to the bottom. On top I die cut out several clouds so it would match on the back too. The sentiment was printed from the computer. 

I left room for signing the card or adding a picture. 

The card is pretty flat. I love the details of the flip flops and how they pop as if you could place your foot inside. I sure do LOVE my flip flops too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend!

Strong Anchor

Hi everyone! Hope your enjoying this Friday! I made this card last week and I didn't get a chance to post it until now....then I was checking out this week's Mojo Monday and seen it will be the last sketch! Im super sad because I love the sketches so much but at the same time I understand family should always come first...I will miss them Julee. 

Since, it is summer naturally I am thinking of the beach and everything nautical. I used these beautiful papers from My Minds Eye called By the Sea. I also used the several Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts. 

The swirl in the background is from Memory Box and the cute sailboats are from Impression Obsession. 

Here is the beautiful sketch...

Have a great day!

Thank You for helping me Grow!

Hi! Happy Friday! 
Im sharing with you today a new card for my girlfriend's daughter to give to her teacher today. I have made a couple teacher cards in the past and this one is somewhat similar to an older card except I decided to use a flower pot and use a quote that I seen on pinterest. I asked my friend what color the teacher likes and I was told I thought these colors would work out. 

I added a ruler in the center and a cute pencil with glitter that I bought recently at the card convention. Actually, it seems so long

All the die cuts are from Cheery Lynn Designs....leave a comment below if you have a question...thanks The inside is layered with a couple punches and room for a gift card...

Pearls, bling and ribbon are a must right? The background was supposed to represent a chalkboard ...

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend!

Hello With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hello again! Welcome back to a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs! I was in the mood for yellows and greens....The "chandelier" was supposed to be the main focus of the card.....but of course I needed to add some fun "black eyed susan's" I love the centers! The chandelier has some yellow stickles to give it a bit bling. I layered "stitched squares" with "horizon square boutique" in the center.

The gorgeous "flourish #8" is new to my collection! I colored the tip of the leaves with a bit darker green copic marker and then added some 3D crystal lacquer to give it a bit of shine. The sentiment was stamped in yellow distressing ink and fussy cut out.

Sea You Soon!

Hi! Hope you had a great weekend! I have been creating just not posting. Be sure to check back the next few days with lots of summer cards. So today I was working hard on this card for a friend of mine who is leaving for  the next couple of month's in Europe to visit her family....I sure will miss my friend....sigh.... Meanwhile...I used the sketch from Mojo Monday # 497. It started off the same then took a bit of a twist...

As some of you may know, I LOVE anything to do with the water, beach, ocean, nautical...etc
Well, so does my girlfriend who is leaving for most of the summer....So I thought "Sea You Soon" was perfect title to the card. 

I bought the chipboard pieces a while ago when I made a little book from Michael's. The flowers I bought on clearance through The banner I printed on the computer and used my favorite die cut "fishtail banner" from Cheery Lynn Designs. The stamped anchor and wheel have matching die cuts from Verve. 

The elegant swirls are from Heartfelt Creations called "belle rose" The mesh in the background is also from Cheery Lynn Designs. The gorgeous papers are from CraftSmith called "seaglass" I added sequins for little bubbles and a little bling...

Here is the inspirational sketch...thanks again Julee! 

Have a great day! 
Hugs, Lisa
