Cheery Lynn Designs October 2015 New Release

Today is new release day at Cheery Lynn Designs
The design team has come up with some fantastic projects to showcase the new dies.  My card uses two gorgeous new doily sets.
I started with a 5-1/2″ square base.  I made a light line down the center both ways in pencil and then two additional lines on each side 1-1/4″ from the center line.  I then used the small domino shaped dies from the Scandinavian Boutique Stacker die to create the lacy background.  I placed the die next to my lines in each of the 8 rectangles one at a time and ran it though my machine.  The result is a beautiful lacy background.  I added a piece of 5-3/8″ square white cardstock to the back so the design really pops.
I then cut some circle layers using Circle Classic Large Stacker XL4 and Circle Pierce and Cut Large LPC-4 and topped them off with the new and gorgeous Scandinavian Circle Doily.  I used my flower from my Shasta Daisy Flower video tutorial in the center.  The sentiment is mounted on the smallest Pierced Banners die DL303 and I dove tailed both ends.  The final embellishment is a pretty double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using White Glitz Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

October Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome to the RRR October Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Amber’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is all about Christmas. I just love a great traditional Christmas color ribbon collection, don’t you??!

I’ve used four of the ribbon styles from the RRR October Ribbon Club assortment on my card today.  The pretty Emerald Checkerboard Satin topped with the Christmas Fun Flower Satin runs across my card under the sentiment panel.  To avoid extra bulk, I dove-tailed the ends of each piece.  I topped off the card with a beautiful bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For a video tutorial on how this bow was made, please click HERE.

My card features lots of wonderful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs including the fabulous Poinsettia Strip die for those gorgeous flowers.  All the dies used are listed on the supply list at the bottom of this post.  Cheery Lynn Designs has a wide selection of dies to help you create stunning holiday cards.
May card is being entered in the following challenges:

Here is my ‘Headband of the Month’.  I will say this – you should definitely experiment with printed ribbons because sometimes even the most unlikely combinations end up giving you fabulous results!  For a video tutorial on how to create this headband, please click HERE.  Different arrangement of the ribbons in the starting position create different looks on the finished piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Karen’s fabulous blog.

I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

Trick or Treat Halloween Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

I’m still having fun playing with the fabulous ribbons from the September Ribbon Club assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I’m totally in love with the Black Houndstooth Plaid Ribbon.  Isn’t it fabby?

I made a fun Halloween themed card with lots of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and embellished with a couple of the styles from the assortment.  The poofy double bow was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 and it’s just a basic double bow.  You can view a video tutorial for a basic bow made on the Bow-it-All Tool HERE.
