It’s Your Day

Hey friends.  Today I’m popping in with a quick post to share a birthday card I made earlier this month for a special young lady.  I added some of my favorite ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon to finish off the card.

 
This is a great sunflower die from Cheery Lynn Designs and I shaded it with Distress Inks.

Did you hear that Cheery Lynn Designs is now My Maker’s Movement?  They are still stocking some favorites from the Cheery Lynn offerings and they are also offering a fabulous new line of stamp and die sets.  Head on over and take a look!

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
B663 Sunflower Set
XL-24 Nested Flower Pots
LPC-16 Rectangle Piece and Cut Set

 
I just love the dimension you get by layering the die cuts.
 

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Yellow Gold and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also added two pieces of Natural Burlap String behind the bow to add some texture.

Bright and Colorful Thank You Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a bold and colorful Thank You card featuring some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and colorful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 The wild and colorful Distress Ink background paper I created is a perfect backdrop for a bold white frame die.  It really shows off the detail of the die.  I also used some of the background paper I created for the Thank You sentiment which was backed with a turquoise layer for a shadow effect.

I also carried the paper through for some of the layers of the pretty flower to pull everything together.

The flower was created with the Daisy Strip for the petals and then I created the center using the center die from the Black Eyed Susan strip.  The leaves came from the Floral Bouquet kit.  Why not mix and match flower pieces to create even more options!

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Hot Pink and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow was adorned with a Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment and the four corners are embellished with 12mm White Half Back Pearls.  The pretty ribbon running across the middle of the card is Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon layered on Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Happy Birthday Card for Someone Special

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty birthday card that I created for my Mom featuring lots of beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I find that birthday cards are the most needed cards and no matter how many I make, I always seem to be behind.  This Birthday Wishes Circle Sentiment is a great addition to your die collection and it can be used over and over in different settings without looking like you are always using the same die.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B783 Birthday Wishes Circle

My Tea Roses were created by alternating layers of solid cardstock with Distress Ink paper.  I just love two tone roses.  I shaped the petals before layering them for a realistic rose look.

I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Rose Bloom and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was topped off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment also from RRR.

I also ran a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.
