The Stocking Were Hung by the Chimney with Care Card

Hello there fellow die lovers!  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft and I’m sharing a scenic holiday card I created with several fun die sets from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

These cards are very easy to make with the wonderful dies sets from Cheery Lynn Designs and you’ll find that you can mix and match many of the sets to build different unique settings.  Today I’m using several sets, but you can build a similar scene with sets that you have.

Cheery Lynn dies used:
CABD127 Fireplace
I first created my fireplace scene by cutting the different pieces out of the colors of cardstock that I wanted.  I had a leftover piece of orange Distress Ink paper from Halloween that worked perfectly for the fire.  My Christmas tree was cut in some green Distress Ink paper along with red and silver and stacked together.  I then created my card base and layers and laid out the fireplace and trees the way I wanted them.  I adhered the fireplace and accessories first and then I added the tree using some foam adhesive squares to add some dimension.  I then cut the presents and added them.

I finished my card off with a pretty bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the Christmas themed October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added a pretty Flower Shaped Pearl Embellishment to the center of the bow.

Inspiration Blog Hop with Graciellie Design and Unity Stamp Company


>> For the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Hop, please scroll down or click HERE. <<

Hello friends and welcome to the October mid-month Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop.  We are continuing to celebrate the new stamp release from Unity Stamp Company featuring beautiful images and sentiments from Graciellie Design.

You should have arrived here from Arjeta’s blog.  If not, head back to the Graciellie Design Blog which is the beginning of the hop.
Today I’m working with the Sending Kindness stamp set from Unity Stamp Company which includes this pretty flower image, a pear, a bee and 5 sentiments.  So versatile!
I am also honored to be working with some great new tools this month from Westcott Brand.  You can see the wonderful scissors I’ve been working with in the photo below.  Surprise bonus is that they coordinate with the color of my project!  lol   I’m also in love with the wonderful craft knife from Westcott Brand with the soft grip which you will see in the next photo also with the precision scissors that come with a lanyard.  No more lost scissors!!
I decided to give watercolors a go this time and considering I have no idea what I’m doing with watercolors, it didn’t come out half bad…
I stayed in a kinda-sorta autumn color palette and included a little burst of apple green.  I like the way it turned out paired with the brown tones.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card and added a bee at the bottom left.  I then created some layers with the brown cardstock and some pretty natural mulberry paper.  Why not make the inside of the card pretty too?!

I created my pretty bi-color bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Moss/Cream Plaid Ribbon and 5/8″ Apple Green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a lovely Antique Vintage Flower Charm.

Cheery Lynn Designs ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cherry’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

Be sure to hop along and leave a comment answering the question on the Cheery Lynn  Designs Blog to be entered to win a $20 gift certificate for Cheery Lynn Designs. 

Today we are showcasing lots of wonderful Christmas/Winter dies from the huge selection that Cheery Lynn Designs offers.  We are really just scratching the surface, so be sure to head on over and look around at all the fabulous options.

My card today features the wonderful Merry Christmas Pine and Partridge Sentiment and the wonderful Poinsettia Strip die.

I cut my sentiment twice in a green Distress Ink Paper I created and then twice in red cardstock.  I backed all the cardstock with Stick It Adhesive before I cut it so it would be easy to adhere.  I selected the areas I wanted to show in red and carefully cut away the rest before adhering the layers.  By adding two layers of red, it gives the sentiment more depth.

If you are making lots of cards assembly line fashion, this sentiment looks lovely in one color too which will speed up production.

I created a piece of mottled Distress Ink Paper for my poinsettias because this pretty paper gives a bit more depth and interest to the flowers.  I cut the flowers and shaped the petals before assembling.  I cut two layers in green for the leaves at the bottom.  The centers are created with White Double Head Stamens.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the Christmas themed October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.
