New Sweetheart Themed Challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Sweetheart 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’ve used some more of the wonderful Cheery Lynn Designs new release dies today.  This gorgeous Quadrafoil Square Doily is my favorite of the new doilies.  You’ll probably be seeing it quite a lot.  I also love the fun Sweetheart Candy die cuts.  They look just like the real candy!

Quadrafoil Square Doily  DL314 *NEW*
Sweetheart Candy  B675 *NEW*

I topped the card off with a simple double-loop bow made from White Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  The white layer with a feathery edge is mulberry paper.

Please head over to my YouTube Channel for more info on both.

Cheery Lynn Designs January 2016 New Release BLOG HOP


Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs January 2016 New Release Blog Hop.
We are so excited to introduce you to all the fabulous new dies available at Cheery Lynn Designs.

If you arrived here from Corina’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. 

Follow through to the end of the hop and leave a comment on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog too for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate.

I started by creating a decorative base for my card using the new Deutschland Oval Doily and added pieces from the Deutschland Accents in the corners.  I then die cut the adorable Be Mine Teddy Bear in ivory and shaded him with with distress ink to give him some extra dimension.  I added scraps of black card stock behind the eyes and nose and pink behind the ears and the hearts on the back paws.  I then cut him out again in pink to use the center heart.  I cut the pink heart out and inserted it under the paws.  I also added a couple of pink Sweetheart Candies as well which are lightly shaded on the edges in pink.  I then created the ‘sentiment’ panel using the XOXOXO die mounted on the pierced banner surrounded by a small ivory border.  To create the fish-tail on both ends, cut your paper half way, the turn the die around matching up the holes.  Now cut the other side.

Cheery Lynn Designs January 2015 New Release

Today is the day that Cheery Lynn Designs reveals their new designs for January 2016 and boy what a fabulous display of new dies! 

You must hop right over and see which ones you want NEED to have for your collection!

My card today features the brand new and gorgeous Fleur de Lis A2 Card Facer.  This die can be used on a single layer of cardstock for a lacy card front, or if you LOVE layers like I do, you can use the pieces individually in different colors and stack them for added color and depth.

I also added a beautiful and shimmery white Monarch Butterfly to the bottom left corner.  You can’t ever have enough butterfly dies in your stash!
The card is topped off with a lovely bi-color double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool with two shades of Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
