New ‘Lots of Layers’ Themed Challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Lots of Layers themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

This theme is sooooo my style.  Almost all of my cards have lots (and lots) of layers!  And also, no – I’m not over my red, white and blue kick just yet.  <sorry!>
I started with a base card in white and centered the largest die in the Cheery Lynn Designs Royal Scandinavian A2 Card Facer die on the card front and cut.  Then I cut the next smaller die in royal blue cardstock backed with Stick It adhesive and cut that.  Then I centered and adhered that to the card base.  Then I cut the smallest die in red cardstock backed with Stick it.  Then I cut a piece of white cardstock in the same dimensions and adhered the red die cut to the white piece.  Then I centered and adhered that to the card base.  Then I printed my sentiment and cut it with the Rectangle Pierce and cut die and layered it on a piece of royal cardstock and added that to the card front.  Enough layers for you?  lol
My fun flower was made with the larger flower die in the Floral Bouquet kit and one of the foliage dies.  If you are new to paper flower making, this set is fabulous.  I cut this flower in blue and red and shaped the petals just a little with a foam pad and large stylus.  So easy.  The center is finished off with a sparkly gem.  Then I just shaped the foliage leaves the same way and attached them to the back of the flower and then to the card under the sentiment.

Red, White & Blue Challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Red, White & Blue themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

Fiona’s Magic Mirror die is a wonderful background type die.  Isn’t it just beautiful on this card?  I also just love the tiny Sweet William Flowers.  Just two layers of petals, gently curved upward with a 6mm adhesive pearl in the middle and a green leaf layer on the bottom.  So easy!
My bow was created using the plaid ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool.  I also used two more of the ribbons running across the center of the card under the sentiment.
This great May Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful Patriotic Themed assortment with 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.
