Tiny Envelope Candy Holder Gift Tag by Ginny


Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share that I have finally created the perfect combination of crafts and candy! Also....wouldn't this make a fabby advent calendar? Or gift tags for the tree with little notes to Santa?
I started by creating mini envelopes and lining them with candy striped paper. Using foam spacers I adhered them to the tag base which I cut with the Rectangle Stitch and Cut.  There's a metal eyelet on the top of the envelope flap with gold twine looped through and adhered on the back.
A little tinsel trim and poinsettias with holly leaves are added to the tag being careful not to block the opening of the envelope.
Smaller poinsettias are added to the top and finished off with glitter glue, pearly accents and shaved ice embellishment.
To finish off the tags I added a loop of twine, poofy bows and a vintage button.

Okay that's all for me. wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Merry Christmas by Jenny Alia


Hi friends, it's Jenny her with you today sharing a Christmas card.  I was inspired by this beautiful Merry Christmas die.  It's large and I wanted to use it on a a larger card to really let it shine.  I used a classic red and green color scheme and cut the Poinsettias out of a patterned paper from an older Bo Bunny Christmas stack.  


I began by layering patterned paper on top of a 5.5" white card base.  I added a white square before gluing the Merry ChristmasHolly Lace Flourish  and Poinsettia dies.  I cut the Poinsettia Strip twice to get enough blooms for the arrangement I wanted.  The flowers were all double layered for fullness.  The Holly Lace Flourish was also cut twice out of a dark green textured card stock.  


For the extra finishing touches I glued pearl centers on the flowers and spread glitter paste on the petal edges.  I sprinkled dry glitter over the paste while it was still wet.  This paste is a new supply for me and I wasn't sure it would be sparkly or white enough for how I'd envisioned it.  As one of my DT sisters recently said it's the season of glitter and I don't think you can go overboard during the holidays.  For extra interest I added white Frantage embossing powder in the corners and heated with a heat tool from underneath.

Hello Card by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovelies. 
Today it's my turn again on this lovely blog and this time I would like to share another card with you  all! The flowers on my card are really easy but really time consuming because you have to cut out at least 20 flower petals from the B187 - Build a Flower #2 but they give such a great affect on your card. You can make them as large as you wish you only have to cute out more flowers petals to do so. 

Hello: 
I cut out the flower petals out of mulberry papers and colored them with some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.  This time I chose a darker purple and a bright pink one. I wish I had more mulberry or mixed media papers.  Then I would have been making flowers all day long because it's so much fun.  

I think I am kind of hooked on that gorgeous B465 - Double Scalloped Border - hehe it's such a great addition to your work! For my card I used the pretty "Vintage Autumn Basics" collection by Maja Design

Lady Steampunk by Julie Lavalette


Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today and I do hope you are having a lovely weekend preparing for the forthcoming Festivities. I thought it would be nice to share a card using the fantastic Steampunk dies that Cheery Lynn make.  I love the versatility of these dies and have fun making them look grungy, masculine or giving them a feminine shabby look. So let me take you through the details on my card.


My Steampunk corners, cogs and butterfly wings were all heat embossed with Frantage powders, tucking accents of cogs behind my paper layers with touches of lace and cheesecloth.


My corset was mounted onto patterned paper and trimmed around the edges. I repeated this process cutting out the bust area only and glued in place on top of the corset with silicone glue to add dimension. The belt was made using the Hinges die adding a little thread. I finished my corset with lace edges and some bling then mounted onto my Butterfly.


My roses and leaves were cut in coordinating paper to compliment the roses on my paper.

Birthday Wishes by Debbie Brownmiller

A warm hello to you. It's Debbie hosting the blog today from Debbie's Time Out. Today I have created a card using some beautiful roses that I had previously made that were in my stash. This is a birthday card for all who have a birthday in December when things get hectic. We want to make sure we celebrate those birthdays too.  So here is a birthday card for you before I post more Christmas cards.

I started with a grey marbled piece of paper matted onto black cardstock. I then layered the Quatrefoil A2 Frame in the center. For the two corners I layered the Ornament #9 .  The Birthday Wishes Circle  was layered on to the lower corner of the card. This gave me a nice base to start building my flower arrangement .
Here is a close up of the flower arrangement. I started by layering the Mini Fanciful Flourish , Rose Leaf Strip , Floral Bouquet Kit , Mini Flourish One Die as filler to place the roses on. I then layered the Large Rose  and the medium- Rose on top. With a red feather tucked in behind it all it finished the card off nicely. I hope I have inspired you to play with some flowers. Cheery Lynn Designs has a huge selection of flowers, leaves and flourishes to choose from. Mixing and matching them together makes for  beautiful flower arrangements.

Baking Holiday Treats with Lisa Blastick


Hi and welcome back to another fun Holiday card for Cheery Lynn Designs! I was inspired this week  to make a cookie card because I'm planning to go to my annual cookie party next weekend! So much fun to see friends that we only get together this time of the year. So this card is all about COOKIES! 

The chocolate chip cookies were made using the smallest "circle stitch" and then I used my hole punch in brown for the chips. The gingerbread man is part of the "gingerbread family" that I just colored the tips of the hands and feet with a white marker. 


Love the "french doily" - it is a must have in your collection as well as the "horizon fishtail banners". 
Here you can see I added a bit of snow to the Santa hat with some cute wiggly eyes.
A few pearls along a few edges and this card is ready to be eaten! Just Kidding! LOL

Season's Greetings Card from Guest Designer Cherry Nelson

Good morning paper peeps and happy 1st of December!  Cherry here from Cherry's Jubilee!  I am so excited to be guesting this month.  Christmas is my favorite holiday to create for so I was pretty ecstatic to join in with the Cheery Lynn girls for December.  I had so much fun getting to use some of these beautiful dies.  I have a Christmas card for you today.  I started off by cutting several layers from the Joy to the World wreath 3 piece die set.  I used several patterns for interest. 


 I absolutely love, love, love this wreath.  I will be using it a lot!  I framed it around my little Santa image and than layered it just a wee bit by adding snippets from the Fall Pumpkin Patch 3 piece die set along with a few little faux berries for color.  I adore the little details of the leaves. 


I wanted more detail towards the bottom of my card so I added the Gauze Border Die.  I ran it through my machine and then snipped the edges to create a ribbon effect.


I was chomping at the bit to use one of the new dies from Cheery Lynn so I added the Christmas Tree Shaker die.


I adorned the tree with a little flourish from the Pumpkin Patch die and the Joy sentiment from the wreath set.  Once I added a bit of pretty seam binding and a jingle bell my card was complete. 



Hope you enjoyed my card today!  See you again for my next guest post.   Cherry

A Country Christmas with GD Laurie Schmidt





Laurie here from Stamping Up North with my last post as a Guest Designer for Cheery Lynn. It has been so much fun sharing my projects with you!

Today I have another Christmas card, which are my FAVE to make.  I don't know if you have been out shopping lately, but PLAID is everywhere. Especially the black and red for the holidays.

It inspired me to make a country Christmas card using plaid paper and my Cherry Lynn dies!


I started out with the Christmas Tree Shaker die and added a bow from the Christmas Wreath die set. The presents are from Whimsical Christmas. I added the sentiment and snowflake using the Christmas Gift envelope set.

Maggi with a layout for you

Greetings Cheery Lynn fans!  I'm sharing a layout today that I did using Maja Design's Summertime collection.  I am a sucker for anything that resembles red, so this paper screamed at me!

Here's a fun way to use your oval dies in a different way to make a scalloped border.  I used the Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily 2 Piece Die Set  to diecut 2 ovals.  Then I cut them in half and placed them just under the floral border piece making a really pretty decorative border.  You can make a border like this with either circular or oval dies.

My layouts have to have flowers and leaves, lots of them!  I made large roses using the 3D Rose 1 Die  and then smaller roses with Medium- Rose 7 Piece Die Set.   I always ink the edges of my flowers to give the petals some depth.

I also made some red "black eyed susans" with our  Black Eyed Susan Strip 5 Piece Die Set.  Aren't they pretty, I bet they'd look great on a Christmas project.

One of my favorite leaf dies is Flourish #14 2 Piece Die Set and I've used it here.  I added a little Lindy's Starburst mist just to give the leaves some shimmer and vary the color abit.

I added a popped up layer underneath my photo with a diecut from the  Pierced Stacker 3 - 6 Piece Die Set  and at the top I added a pretty scalloped striped layer cut with A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped 7 Piece Die Set .

That's it for me today.  Be sureto stop by the Cheery Lynn store and take a look at our new shaker card kits and dies.  AND, don't forget to enter our challenge, you could win a $20 gift certificate to the store.

Christmas Gift Tags with Cheryl Walker


Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all! Today I have a couple of tags to share with you. I have been busy trying to create tags to put on our gifts this year, and Cheery Lynn Dies work Perfectly for this :) I LOVE the BIG dies I used here, and the beautiful shape. I will be writing on the back of these To: and From: , I could have stamped that, but hey I will just write :) hehehehe

Tags measures -5" x 3 3/4"

I LOVED using this Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip to create the Poinsettias on both tags. This strip makes cutting super easy, as the strip has enough to create 3 flowers in one single run through your die cut machine, gotta LOVE that! On these flowers, I used a gingham print design paper and my glass flower technique. Love how the flowers turn out and how they stay so perfect. In the centers I used some gems.

Now on this tag I used the Poinsettia die cutting out a different pattern paper almost makes them look like candy cane :) hehehehe

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Tag base was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs Pierced Stacker #2 XL-20 die
Also used Cheery Lynn's Oval Classic SM Silver Stacker Layers 8 for the ovals on my tags
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell B846 die for the Holly Leaves and branches
Cheery Lynn Quadrafoil Tag B682


I am actually going to use these for all the large quilts I am making for Christmas gifts this year. Ha! I just learned how to quilt, and I am on my 4th one.  I think these would be perfect for large gifts :) but I will be writing a little note on the back and tie it to the quilt on the inside of the package . Might have to make some smaller ones for the top of the gift :) or some that are this size, not sure yet :) we shall see!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, please do leave a comment letting me know what you think of my tags :)
Have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl
