Cheery Lynn October Blog Hop



Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my blog. Today at Cheery Lynn Designs we are having a blog hop sharing lots of inspiration with our Winter themed cards. So let me take you through my design.


I started by cutting out a stitched rectangle stacker die in white cardstock. I sprayed some Wintry shades of Distress Sprays and a little water onto my mat and swiped my card through picking up the ink. I dried my card and next sprinkled some Frantage for a snowy effect, finally adding some glittered diecut snowflakes and mounting onto my glittercard.


My houses were diecut out in white glitter card adding some yellow card behind the windows. I coloured the trees with Copic Pens and finished with a little Archival Ink on the edges of the houses and some Snowtex and Glass Glitter for extra sparkle.


My Polar Bear and Penguin are both cut out in several colours of glitter card, layering together and adding extra detail on the embossed areas of my Dies with a fine liner pen and finishing the hats with more Snowtex and Glass Glitter.

I'd love for you to leave a comment before you go, I love reading them all and please be sure to leave a comment as you arrive back at Cheery Lynn Designs to be in with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree.

Hello Beautiful


Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today to see my DT card for Cheery Lynn Designs


My card uses one of the many pretty background designed Dies. I started by cutting this out in pearlised cream cardstock and mounted onto the same card to form the base of my card. Cheery Lynn's word dies come in two different sizes which are great for layouts and cards. I decided to use the smaller Die on my word Hello and the larger Die on my word Beautiful.


My Daises were cut out in the same cream cardstock adding Distress Ink onto them and Prills into the centres. I mounted them onto my Ivy Corner Flourish which I also arranged a few extra leaves using my Ivy Strip Die and finished with some Butterflies.

Love You Longer


Hi everyone, for my DT post with Craft Consortium I have made a mixed media wall hanging which measure approximately 6.5" x 9.5".


I started by adding some Rose Gold paint around the edges of my wood panel and then added a sheet of paper which I tattered at the edges before gluing in place. I continued layering up with tattered torn layers which had lace added to the edges for a shabby vintage feel. These layers were all glued in place with foam strips to add extra dimension.


My frame I mounted my bridal couple into was purchased from a bargain shop. I painted it in a coordinating soft pink adding some lace and Gilding Wax.


I used my Kori Kumi Die Cut leaves and Heat embossed with Rose Gold to give a metallic feel. I added a Resin Rose into the centre of my Shabby Ribbon Rose. Finishing with a stamped sentiment and lots of pretty Pearl embellishments.

Merry Christmoose


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a fun Christmas card with you, using a few of the new Dies from their Fall and Winter release.


I started by cutting out my Aspen Tree Die in White Cardstock and Heat embossed some white glitter powder for a glistening snow effect, adding touches of grey Archival Ink to the edges for definition. This was mounted onto corrugated card which I had heat set sprinkles of Frantage onto for more snow, placing my moon between the layers.


My icicles were cut out in white glitter card and a layer of Glossy accents onto them. My sentiment was drop shadowed to make it pop.


My super cute Moose was cut out in Kraft card using a fineliner pen to highlight the embossed areas. I added Ink to the edge of his cream antlers and a sparkly festive scarf.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you manage to have some creative time this week.

Baked With Love


Hi everyone, with the Bake Off finally started once again on the TV, I thought it would be fun to make a card for my DT post for Craft Consortium using the pretty Wild Rose paper pad. It has many perfect designs within this pad to give the vintage feel I was after for this style of card. I love how each sheet compliments the others in the pad.


My card measures 8 x 8 and I started by tattering 3 layers at the edges and on my top layer I added some stitching and a few buttons.


I placed a diecut Doily into the centre of my design to help the layers of my patterned coordinating papers pop on my apron. Adding touches of lace, more buttons and kitchen utensils into the pockets.


My card was finished with a stamped friendship sentiment



and oven gloves hanging from her apron.

The Spell Room


Hello everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some more spooky fun in my Spell Room card.


I started by layering onto my paper my black Die Cut frame, this helps to draw the eye into the centre of the card. I die cut out my Old Books adding names onto them, layering onto my card and sitting my cheeky cat on top along with a scary ghoul.


My witches potions I also added names onto the bottles along with a cheeky spider. My witches hat I backed with some purple glitter card and adding colour to the buckle from a gold alcohol pen.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting,

Magical Winter


Hi fellow bloggers today for my DT post at Craft Consortium I am sharing some more inspiration using the magical Winter Woodland Paper Pad and the coordinating stamps from the set.



I started by diecutting out a circle in white cardstock. I stamped my deer on as the main image onto the design followed by lots of foliage and mushrooms. I coloured this in with Copic Pens and blended some blue Distress Ink into the background. Next I added a sprinkling of Frantage to give a snowy effect.


I fussy cut my Robin from the papers adding onto the branch.


Finishing my card with a couple of cheeky fussy cut squirrels and red Stickles on the berries.

Winter Woodland Paper Pad will be launching on Create and Craft soon and will initially be exclusive to them. Shortly afterwards it will be available directly from Craft Consortium and craft shops. Just keep an eye on social media for launch date.

Craft Consortium- Winter Woodland New Release


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am so pleased to be finally able to share with you all my first project using the new enchanting Winter Woodland paper pad by Hackney and co. This pad is full of exquisite hand illustrated floral designs and woodland creatures and also has co-ordinating Silicone Stamps and the most gorgeous small metal acorns that are a must for any Christmas project.


When I first browsed through this paper pad I felt transported into a magical Woodland as I oohed and aahed at the papers which also reminded me of a scene from the film Bambi which I watched as a child. I knew then I wanted to replicate my thoughts of this Pad within a mixed media styled book. I decided I wanted my book to look quite plain on the outside so the magic of the Woodland came to life upon opening it.


My book was made by covering chipboard for my covers and the pages were formed in a concertina effect using my Scorpal board and gluing the strips together to form the basis of my book. It also helped for building a 3D dimensional effect.


Inside you can see I used more of the beautiful papers, fussy cutting some of the characters to build my winter scene adding lots of Snowtex, Glamour Dust, Glass Glitter, Stickles and Snowflake Paste.


Touches of Lace from the Always and Forever collection have been used around the inside of my book and the outside binding.

Here is a photo show of my book that Rachael from Craft Consortium kindly made for me sharing a lot more pictures of my book that my Husband had taken.

Hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear your comments.

I'm sure you have also fallen in love with this Winter Woodland Paper Pad and are desperate to get it. It will be launching on Create and Craft soon and will initially be exclusive to them. Shortly afterwards it will be available directly from Craft Consortium and craft shops. Just keep an eye on social media for launch date.

As The Sun Sets


Hi Everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing inspiration using the exquisite paper pad called Tell the Bees, filled with such pretty Floral papers, honeycombs, Bees and foiling.


My card today shows three of the papers in this pad, the text, honeycomb and my fussy cut Bees.


I added some pollen to my flowers using Flowersoft which compliments the Bees.


I cut a half circle from the honeycomb paper to look like the sun was setting as the Die Cut children headed to a party.

September Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. Today at Cheery Lynn Designs we are having a blog Hop to Give Thanks to all our Fans by giving you 15% off all our store wide Dies and Supplies from 15th September through until 22nd September. Do check it out HERE.


My card today has an Autumnal feel to it which could easily be adapted for a Thanksgiving card.


I started by cutting out my curved edged Stacker Die in brown card stock. My next layer I wanted to look like shabby strips of wood so I painted a sheet of cardstock with brown paint and applied a layer of crackle paint. Once dry I added white paint to the top to reveal the crackles and sprinkled on Gold Embossing powder, heat setting in place. I then cut into strips, tattering and inking the edges layering onto my card with foam strips.


My sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card and torn around the edges, applying some ink in Autumnal colours.


My Autumn bouquet you will notice my acorns were cut out in Kraft card. I layered the base part twice and coloured with a dark brown Copic Pen, the nut part I added some Distress crackle paint to it.


My swirls were Heat embossed with a mixture of metallic powders. My leaves were cut out in several shades, inking some with Autumnal colours and adding some Distress powders onto them. The berries were coloured with a few shades of Copic Pens adding Glossy Accents onto them.

I'd love for you to leave a comment, I so enjoy reading them.  Please be sure to leave a comment at Cheery Lynn Designs to also be in with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.
