Butterfly Wishes - Cherish The Memory

Hi everyone, for my Design Team post at Cherish The Memory I am using the gorgeous Lemoncraft Papers they are now stocking along with a super range of their embellishments and ephemera which I will be giving inspiration with on my cards and projects over the coming months.

On this card I started by tattering strips of paper and inked them at the edges, mounting onto another tattered layer.

I layered on a Cheery Lynn Doily and a fussy cut Doily from the Ephemera Sheet which also included the watch, Butterflies and sweet little girl.

This was all mounted onto my tattered bill from the Ephemera pack, finishing off with a Shabby Ribbon and pretty Die cut flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and do checkout Cherish The Memory Etsy Shop to see their full range of Lemoncraft products.

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a vintage Valentines card that could easily be adapted as a Mother’s Day or Birthday card using these Dies.

I tattered a few layers and added some lace onto my torn layer.

Both my Heart Frame and Heart Pop-up have shadow layers on them.

My Cupid is made from a Katy Sue Mould and Paper Clay.

My flowers were cut from white cardstock and shaded with Distress Inks adding Pearls into the centres. 

Finishing my card with a White Dove and some Heart Pearls. My XO's and Arrow were shaded with Pro Marker metallic pens.

Love and Cherub

Hi Everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some inspiration using one of their fabulous Mega Doilies. These Dies are fantastic for scrapbooking with but look equally as good using as accents on cards for a WOW factor and cut beautifully. 

My card today measures approximately 8 x 6 inches and the border strip on my card is just over 2 inches. I mounted the same colour of cardstock to the inside and on my border strip which gives contrast and helps my Doily pop.

I cut into my paper using my heart Die. You can also use the heart border edge die to cut it out of the paper should you wish.

My flowers were shaped on my Embossing mat and shaded with Distress ink. I used small Pom Pom balls in the centres of my flowers which I coloured with Alcohol Ink to get my desired shade.

My sentiment was stamped onto my diecut adding a cherub which I made from a mould and paper clay. 

Finishing off my card with lots of Pearl Accents.

MDF Storage Box - Craft Consortium

Hi everyone and thank you for stopping by today to see my post for Craft Consortium using their new MDF range along with a couple of their Decoupage papers.

So let me share some photographs with you.

I fussy cut my birds out of my Decoupage Paper and layered on top of my base paper.

The sides of my box and index cards were all sanded for a neat edge.

I added little name tags onto my index cards and fussy cut butterflies from the Decoupage Paper.

 As you can see I lined the inside with Decoupage paper to match the outside of the box.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the pictures and if you click HERE you can check through all the products in their shop.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and please do check out Craft Consortium and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular inspiration and giveaways..

Craft Consortium's MDF Launch

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today and apologies for falling so far behind with your lovely blogs but I have not been well at all recently. Craft Consortium recently launched a new collection of MDF products along with glue and brushes to compliment their wonderful range of Decoupage Papers. You may have tuned into Create and Craft last week and noticed them being showcased.

My letter rack has been covered  in the sheets of Vintage Postcards Decoupage paper, gluing in place and adding a top coat of glue. I didn't add Gesso to my MDF before adding the paper as I wanted to keep the muted tones. It also makes great craft storage as well as a letter rack.

Once dry I sanded my edges to give a crisp edge. I also added some gold Embossing Powder around the edges to add a Vintage feel.

I added a layer of felt onto the base.

My butterflies were fussy cut from another Decoupage Paper and glued in place adding Rhinestones into the centres for a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope I am able to catch up with all your blogs shortly. Also a big thank you to my darling husband who does my photography and putting my blog posts up for me. I really don't know what I would do without his help.

Crafty Hugs,

Springtime Birthday

Hi Everyone, this last week in Scotland has been very cold and we have had a lot of snow and frost. Thinking of warmer days I decided to create a Birthday card for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs using one of their latest Pop-Up Dies - Celebrate, along with spring coloured cardstock.

I shadowed layered my word Celebrate 3 times to make it pop and incorporate the colours on my card design and flowers.

My flowers were all cut out in white cardstock and shaded in the centres with some ink. Next I shaped the petals on my Embossing mat and added Flowersoft into the centres. The smaller flowers I bunched a few together in places and added single ones too for extra detail and interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the lovely comments left on my blog on our Blog Hop, it was lovely to read them all.

Wishing you a lovely creative weekend,

Cheery Lynn Pop Up Blog Hop January 2018

Hi everyone, today at Cheery Lynn Designs we are all excited to be launching the first new range of Dies for 2018, a selection of 3D Pop Up Dies.

For my Card Wallet I used 2 of the new designs on my card. There is a fabulous selection of these Dies so why not join in our Blog Hop and you could be in with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I started with the inside of my card placing my new Pop Up Dies on an A4 piece of card and cut out on my A4 Die Cutting machine. These Dies also fit on smaller machines but for this design I needed to use my larger machine for it. 

Once cut I tattered and inked the edges, adding my corner Die cuts and drop shadowed my sentiment, also adding another layer of coloured card onto my flowers.

Finishing with a tag to write a sentiment on in the inside.

Next I glued onto a layer of patterned paper which had also been tattered and inked at the edges. I added a Ribbon to my card to tie it in place and a selection of diecut flowers were added onto my design.

My 3D pop up card can also be displayed like a normal card as seen in this image. 

I have added a few more images.
