Good Morning :) I hope everyone has been making the most of the gorgeous summery weather! Its been beautiful here!
This week the Cheery Lynn DT were given some gorgeous Imaginisce products to play with, and I fell in love with this beautiful blue 12 x 12 paper from the Making Waves Collection! These are double sided papers, great quality and really wonderful to work with.
Our new theme this week on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge is 'Shaped Cards', so no squares or rectangles allowed! :D lol.
I made my own 6 x 6 shaped card base using the largest size French Flair Scalloped Stackers. I folded a 12 x 12 piece of ice white 300gsm Centura pearl cardstock in half, and placed the top part of the die just a little above the crease so it still held itself intact. I then layered alternate sheets of paper and card from the:
French Flair Scalloped Stackers - the 3 largest sizes
French Flair Silver Stackers - the 3 largest sizes
French Flair Doily Stacker - the 2 largest sizes (I love these doily dies!)
I then added a couple of mini flourishes and an exotic butterfly, centred my image on Scalloped Circle Stackers and Classic Circle Stackers and cut 3 starfish shapes from the leaves part of the Large Rose & Medium Rose dies!
I coloured my image with PM's, chalked the cloudy background and added ribbon, charm and pins from stash. The sentiments are Pink Petticoat. This was a totally new shape of card for me, and I have to say I was really pleased with the result and how well all the dies and layers just fitted together perfectly.
I hope you find time to join in this week, and dont forget if you leave a comment on the 'kickoff post' on the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog you are in with another chance of winning a $20 gift certificate to spend online.
