Citrus CAS

Hi and Good Morning Everyone :)

Back today with a card I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog

Well I was feeling bright and summery when I made this card, and I also fancied a bit of a challenge!  I dont do CAS very often (or very well!) and I also never play with orange!  So this ticks both of my 'out of my comfort zone' boxes. lol.

I started out with a 6 x 6 inch scalloped blank card base and layered First Edition papers onto white American Crafts Cardstock.

I then placed the Dutch Scalloped Square frame over my dotty paper and then added the scalloped square and square die cuts.  I cut the gorgeous Sophias Heart mini doily for my centrepiece and added the sentiment on top.  For a finishing touch I made 2 daisies from the Daisy Flower strip and topped off with a little card candi.


All dies used on this card are:

DL140 - Dutch Scallop Square
DL238 - Sophias Heart Mini Doily
XL-2 - Scalloped Stackers Square
L-1 - Classic Silver Square Stackers
XM-5 - Scalloped Circle
XM-4 - Circles
B259 - Daisy Strip.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I will absolutely be trying to pop along and catch up this week!

Have a smashing week,

Happy Birthday

Hi and Good Morning everyone :) 

Tut.. Blogger let me down with the scheduling of this post :( Bah!

So.. todays card is a quick and simple Birthday card made with a few gorgeous Cheery Lynn Dies.
I started off with a blank 6 x 6 inch card base, and layered Prima papers onto aqua bazzil card and inked the edges with Distress Ink.
I layered the really pretty Mesh Hearts Border onto my paper panel and tucked the Lace Light Deco Border strip behind before sticking down.  I then added Felicity Tiny Doily to the top right corner.
I coloured my image and backed onto aqua card cut with the Card maker scalloped rectangles and then added the cute clouds and Birthday Sentiment
Told you it was simples! :)

B319 - Mesh Hearts Border - Vertical
B133 - Lace Light Deco Border

Cheery Lynn and Prickley Pear

Hi and Good Morning :)
Well, I didnt vanish! lol :) 
My card today was created using a mix of wonderful stamps and dies from Prickley Pear, and of course some stunning Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch kraft card base and layered green bazzil and K&Co papers.  I cut the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame out of white bazzil and also the gorgeous City Girl Edger Border.  I stamped the You Make Me Bloom sentiment, and added the Celtic Heart.
I then had fun making the beautiful flowers using matching stamps and dies from Prickly Pear.  I cut 5 flowers from lilac bazzil card and then stamped the flowers onto lilac vellum.   This made the image really easy to line up with the dies and they cut beautifully!
I added some olive branch leaves, dimensional leaves, ribbon, pin and what is rapidly becoming my signature finishing touch, the gorgeous butterfly.
All dies and stamps used on this card are:
