More Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs New Releases

If you have been following my blog, you know that Cheery Lynn Designs has released a fabulous new batch of dies and this week the design team is creating wonderful projects using them.  AND, you can win a $25 shopping spree to Cheery Lynn Designs by commenting on each of the blog posts over at Cheery Lynn Designs blog between May 1st and May 8th. 


For this card, I again used the oh so cute Screen Door die (you even get 2 pieces of screen with the die!!)  but I added the new Victorian Picket Fence and Garden Gate dies as well.  I die cut them out of Coredinations Whitewash card stock and sanded them for a very worn wood look.  I used the screen door handle to make the gate hinges and handle.  Then I used Fanciful Flourish and Darling Daisies as embellishments.  This is just the cutest card.  It folds flat and fits a 5 x 7 envelope. 

Using some left over pieces of  Victorian Picket Fence and Fanciful Flourish along with Judy's Blooms, I made this great gift tag or I guess it could be a bookmark.  These are great die cut flowers.  They have scores in the petals which make them very easy to shape for more dimension.  I used my Big Wicker to emboss the lines on the background paper.

I was having so much fun with my new dies that I just kept on going, lol.  For this card, I got out my new Pair of Ferns and  Zig Zag Ric Rac border die along with Judy's Blooms and created this card.  The wonderful paper is from the Graphic 45 Le Cirque Collection.  The cute Basset Girl is an adorable digi image from Karen's Doodles.  Finished size is 6" square.


So don't forget to stop by the Cheery Lynn Designs blog and leave a comment on each post between May 1st and May 8th for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to Cheery Lynn Designs.

Your cards just keep getting cuter each day. The door, fence and the flouish are the cutest. Can't wait to get my dies. Like the idea of the book mark and the basset is cute too. Such clever ideas. Edna

Gorgeous cards and sweet tag. Love the screen door and flowers on your Tilda card and the garland should cheer up the poor, sad little puppy, or at least the lucky recipient!
Thanks for sharing! :)
