New Anything Goes Challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

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

I die cut the adorable Whimsical Owl from Cheery Lynn Designs in several different colors.  I used the lavender as the base and then cut and added the different sections in the colors of my choice.  I also lightly inked the edges of the pieces for a little depth.  The sentiment was layers and slightly offset on dark brown card stock to create a shadow effect.
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B789 Whimsical Owl
B796 Whimsical Flower Set 1
B788 Whimsical For Someone Special

My bow was made using Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Brown Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

Zutter Bow-it-All V3.0 Video Tutorial – Basic Double-Loop Bow

Hi friends.  Today I am sharing a new Basic Double-Loop bow video tutorial made on the Zutter Bow-it-All V3.0.  This is a bow that can be used for just about any project and it’s a great one to learn.  The beautiful ribbon and the Bow-it-All V3.0 can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love this bow and use it quite a often because it’s a bit subdued, but it still looks great while not overpowering the other details on the card.  The wonderful sentiment came from Inspired by Stamping and the dies are all from Cheery Lynn designs.
Cheery Lynn dies used:
My bow was made with 5/8″ Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon which is not only one of my favorite ribbon styles, but inexpensive as well.  This ribbon is available in over 30 colors!
Here is a close-up of this wonderful bow.  See how great the center pleats on this bow look?

Sweet Little Baby of Mine Card

Hi everyone.  I’m still having fun with the Whimsical Delights dies from Cheery Lynn Designs that were released in June.  Today I’m sharing a cute baby card featuring several of the NEW dies.

I wanted to create a layered scene on this card and I really like the way this turned out.  This die release has lots of dies that work really well together.  That adorable giraffe is my favorite animal in this release!
Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
I cut most of the dies out in two or more colors and then cut and pieced them together putting the colors where I wanted them.  I also inked the edges of the animals and clouds to create depth.  The hills were just made fussy cutting some green cardstock and the grass was cut out in two colors and I offset and stacked them.  I tucked the animals in to the grass.  Isn’t that smiley sun die the best?!
I printed the digital sentiment with my computer and added it to the tag.  I embellished the tag with some pink and light blue Burlap String and I added a little miniature bow made with 1/8″ Pink Diagonal Stripe Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the hippo.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves, Lilac Posies, Sweet Plum; Distress Ink Victorian Velvet, Gathered Twigs
