Joy to the World


Hi everyone and welcome to my DT post for Cheery Lynn Designs. Gosh I can't believe how fast we are now approaching the end of the year and it will soon be Thanksgiving Day for all our American friends. So today my card is inspired by this celebration.


I started by distressing my 2 layers of Maja Design papers at the edges and layered onto my card. I cut out my wreath in 3 shades of paper from the same pad, cutting 2 of my wreaths so they would stretch out a little larger than the base one. The cut was hidden by my drop shadowed reindeer.


My large sunflower was coloured with Copic Pens and Micro Beads added into the centre. The smaller sunflowers I added Flowersoft into the centres and also touches onto the wreath. My berries were coloured with Copic and 2 layers of Glossy accents added letting them dry between coats. Finishing with arranging my bouquet onto my card.

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog today to see my Design Team card for Craft Consortium using the new paper pad from Hackney and Co called Winter Woodland. It's such a beautiful pad with many gorgeous designs I'm sure every style of crafter will love.


I started by stamping my La Blanche image of the boy on the Toadstool which I coloured and cut out, layering onto my card with the extra fussy cut toadstools, mushrooms, Woodland creatures and a Robin all from the Paper Pad. 


Finishing with stamping my sentiment onto another patterned paper from the pad.

Let It Snow


Hi everyone today I'm sharing my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs. The clocks changed last weekend in Scotland and there is definitely a wintry feel in the air now which inspired me to make my winter scene using the pretty Maja Design papers and some of our vast range of amazing Festive and Winter dies.


I started my card by tattering at the edges two layers of paper and adding a scattering of Frantage for a snowy effect. My rosette styled Snowflower was cut out in glitter card adding Holly, Pine Branches and layering on my cute snowman.


My Let It Snow was drop shadowed and layered onto my Stackers with a little cheesecloth and Frantage for extra detail. I mounted my Dancing Snow Flurries Border around my sign using sections of this Die to form the oval shape.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Bats and Ghouls


Hi fellow crafters, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some Halloween inspiration with my spooky card. I always have great fun at this time of the year creating cards with scenes on them.



For this card I decided to make my own inky background using Distress Inks and mounted it onto white cardstock. 



My spiders web was drop shadowed adding another inky layer on top with my sentiment which compliments the Twisted Tree Die so well. Finishing this area with a couple of scary ghouls.



My skeleton I cut his legs off and then placed all the parts behind the gravestone in a fun abstract way.



My Twisted Tree I decided to lay on its side to look like a spooky branch also adding a drop shadow to it. I then added my crow and attached my bats on to the branch by drawing a line with a fineliner pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired to create a fun Halloween card.

Cheery Lynn October Blog Hop



Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my blog. Today at Cheery Lynn Designs we are having a blog hop sharing lots of inspiration with our Winter themed cards. So let me take you through my design.


I started by cutting out a stitched rectangle stacker die in white cardstock. I sprayed some Wintry shades of Distress Sprays and a little water onto my mat and swiped my card through picking up the ink. I dried my card and next sprinkled some Frantage for a snowy effect, finally adding some glittered diecut snowflakes and mounting onto my glittercard.


My houses were diecut out in white glitter card adding some yellow card behind the windows. I coloured the trees with Copic Pens and finished with a little Archival Ink on the edges of the houses and some Snowtex and Glass Glitter for extra sparkle.


My Polar Bear and Penguin are both cut out in several colours of glitter card, layering together and adding extra detail on the embossed areas of my Dies with a fine liner pen and finishing the hats with more Snowtex and Glass Glitter.

I'd love for you to leave a comment before you go, I love reading them all and please be sure to leave a comment as you arrive back at Cheery Lynn Designs to be in with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree.

Hello Beautiful


Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today to see my DT card for Cheery Lynn Designs


My card uses one of the many pretty background designed Dies. I started by cutting this out in pearlised cream cardstock and mounted onto the same card to form the base of my card. Cheery Lynn's word dies come in two different sizes which are great for layouts and cards. I decided to use the smaller Die on my word Hello and the larger Die on my word Beautiful.


My Daises were cut out in the same cream cardstock adding Distress Ink onto them and Prills into the centres. I mounted them onto my Ivy Corner Flourish which I also arranged a few extra leaves using my Ivy Strip Die and finished with some Butterflies.

Love You Longer


Hi everyone, for my DT post with Craft Consortium I have made a mixed media wall hanging which measure approximately 6.5" x 9.5".


I started by adding some Rose Gold paint around the edges of my wood panel and then added a sheet of paper which I tattered at the edges before gluing in place. I continued layering up with tattered torn layers which had lace added to the edges for a shabby vintage feel. These layers were all glued in place with foam strips to add extra dimension.


My frame I mounted my bridal couple into was purchased from a bargain shop. I painted it in a coordinating soft pink adding some lace and Gilding Wax.


I used my Kori Kumi Die Cut leaves and Heat embossed with Rose Gold to give a metallic feel. I added a Resin Rose into the centre of my Shabby Ribbon Rose. Finishing with a stamped sentiment and lots of pretty Pearl embellishments.

Merry Christmoose


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a fun Christmas card with you, using a few of the new Dies from their Fall and Winter release.


I started by cutting out my Aspen Tree Die in White Cardstock and Heat embossed some white glitter powder for a glistening snow effect, adding touches of grey Archival Ink to the edges for definition. This was mounted onto corrugated card which I had heat set sprinkles of Frantage onto for more snow, placing my moon between the layers.


My icicles were cut out in white glitter card and a layer of Glossy accents onto them. My sentiment was drop shadowed to make it pop.


My super cute Moose was cut out in Kraft card using a fineliner pen to highlight the embossed areas. I added Ink to the edge of his cream antlers and a sparkly festive scarf.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you manage to have some creative time this week.

Baked With Love


Hi everyone, with the Bake Off finally started once again on the TV, I thought it would be fun to make a card for my DT post for Craft Consortium using the pretty Wild Rose paper pad. It has many perfect designs within this pad to give the vintage feel I was after for this style of card. I love how each sheet compliments the others in the pad.


My card measures 8 x 8 and I started by tattering 3 layers at the edges and on my top layer I added some stitching and a few buttons.


I placed a diecut Doily into the centre of my design to help the layers of my patterned coordinating papers pop on my apron. Adding touches of lace, more buttons and kitchen utensils into the pockets.


My card was finished with a stamped friendship sentiment



and oven gloves hanging from her apron.
