Fun with Angel wings!

Hello! Today I have a fun Thanksgiving card  I created for Cheery Lynn Designs!
  I created the fun scallop edge of my card using the English Tea Party Doily Angel Wing!
 I cut the strip for my card base, then taped the angel wing to the end of the strip so that it wouldn’t move as I cut it.
 Whaaala!! A fun decorative edge on your card!
 The frame was cut using the middle size Classic Coved Rectangle Silver Stacker. I then cut out a portion of the coved rectangle block using Classic Square Silver Stacker making a fun frame for my sentiment! I finished off the frame with Lace Corner Deco B. I cut two layers of Fall Pumpkins, trimming off the outer edge of one layer and adhered it to the center of the pumpkin with foam adhesive for dimension to my pumpkin. I layered the pumpkins atop the larger of Two of Hearts tucking in leaves and foliage from Mini Fanciful Flourish, Wreath Strip, Small Leaves #2.

The Little Things

Hello! Jodi here with a 12x12 layout inspired by this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs, Autumn colors.
I just love to play with the border dies from Cheery Lynn Designs! They have so many details, and can be implemented on cards and layouts of any style. Here I have layered the Anastasia Border atop the Border Carnivale for a bit of fun, and added the elegant Tiffany Border around the photos.
  A fall cluster must have a Sunflower! I love the details cut in to the flower center! I cut two layers of flower, staggering the petals as I adhered them, then added the flower center with foam adhesive for dimension. The burgundy Mums were created by cutting two layers each of the large, medium, and small Darling Daisies. Using the tip of my stylus, I molded the petals forward to mimic the Mum. I them assembled them staggering the petals of each layer as I went.
The main flower in this cluster was cut with the Stacker Flower #5. I used two layers each of the large, medium, and small spiky flower center from Build a FlowerBuild a Flower Embellishment #1. The smaller yellow flowers throughout the layout are found in the Build a Flower Embellishment #2 set.

Fall Foliage

Hello! Jodi here sharing a 12x12 layout for Cheery Lynn Designs featuring an assortment of  leaves in fall colors!
  I’ve used the Bunny and Chick border to dress up my background layer. I split the Polynesian Sails Oval in half, layering each half on top and bottom of my photos adding a bit of elegance and texture to the layout.
 I cut two layers of Sunflower for each flower, staggering the layers as I adhered them. The flower centers were attached with foam adhesive to add dimension. Rose Leaf Strip was cut in green for flower leaves.
 Fall leaves were cut from Small Leaves #1, Small Leaves #2, Large Leaves #2. Other foliage filling in are Mini Fanciful Flourish, Fanciful Flourish, Pair of Ferns, Olive Branches, Wreath Strip, and Flourish Leaf Strip. The title was cut using the elegant Delicate Lace Script.

Font Fun!

Hello! I'm here with a Holiday card full of fun tips and ideas from Cheery Lynn Designs
I started by cutting the base of my card with the largest of the Scalloped Square Stackers Nesting dies, layered with the Classic Square Silver Stacker. The Dainty Dutch Deco Frame adds the perfect elegance to the background on my card.
 To add dimension to my card and letters, I cut the letters "J" and "Y" from the cardboard of a cereal box.
 I cut each letter three times. 
I stacked each of the letters adhering as I went followed with a cardstock letter, creating the same feel as the expensive store bought letters for a much better price, and custom made to match my project!
For fun, I used the Ornamental Wreath as the “O” in my word. Here is a close up of the fabulous details on the wreath. The Wreath set comes with a beautiful bow die, but I chose to add a real bow for more texture on my card. I tucked in some foliage from the Holly Leaves and Wreath Strip
