New Release!



Cheery Lynn Designs is revealing another set of dies today! More gorgeous doilies, borders, frames, flower, wings and more!


For my first project, I created a canvas ….my first attempt at a canvas! I’ve seen so many gorgeous canvas creations but have been a bit intimidated to try one of my one. I decided it was time to step outside my comfort zone and give it a try! I started by spritzing the background with my Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists. I layered a few doily dies in amongst some Glitz Design Whatnots and Peek-A-Boo‘s. Notice the new English Tea Party Angel Wings and Polynesian Sales Doily Angel Wing ? They really enhance the details in the doilies! (English Tea Party Doily, Polynesian Sales Oval Doily) Check out the doily under the “e!” That is the newly released Sophia’s Heart Doily. Isn’t it exquisite?! To the right, I added a piece of Victorian Picket Fence border.


After covering my letters with pattern paper, I added some Distress Crackle Paints contributing to the vintage feel of the piece. I used the larger die from Two of Hearts in place of the “o”. The pleated flower atop was created using the Newly released Wedding Garter border. I pleated it every quarter inch, attached the ends, and finished off with a Dangle from Pink Paislee.




Next, I added flowers created with the Miniature Rose, Large Rose, and the newly released Cuties #4. To create the Cuties #4, I cut my dies from several layers of pages from an old book. Since the papers is lighter, the flowers turned out so fluffy! The leaves around the flowers were cut from Olive Branches, Small Leaves #2, and Large Leaves #2. Finishing off the piece, I adhered a butterfly from Exotic Butterfly small #2. Then the final touch…attaching the newly released Francesca Border around the edge. I really had fun with this project and won’t be so intimidated to try another!

My second project is a 5x7 card. The beautiful background was created using the XL Diamonds & Starburst Embossing Plate. I layered the newly released Wedding Garter border on top of the newly released Francesca border. The lovely pink frame was cut from the newly released Enchanted Forest Stacker Frame set. To created the flower, I cut several layers of tissue paper using the newly released Cutie #4. Leaves were cut from the Small Leaves #2 set.

Head over to the Cheery Designs Blog to check out the other newly released dies, and the lovely examples from my fellow design team members!
