Shaker Ornaments with Maggi

3:30 AM 0 Comments
Christmas time is all about family and children in my mind and here is a project you can do with the kids.  These are shaker tree ornaments that are so simple to make.  All you need is our shaker die kits (listed below).  The shaker kits even come with shakers but I opted to use glass beads for shakers in these.

Make two shakers and glue them together.  For the bell, cut the clapper off one so they match up nicely.  Since I used white foam to make the shakers, I took a Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen in green and inked all around the two shakers.  You could use any ink to color the edges.

Embellish the tree top and the bell with a small flower from the Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Set .  Shown here are the reverse sides of the above - these are all ready to tie on your tree.

Sweet Brad the Reindeer Card with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 0 Comments
Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all!

Today's sweet reindeer card was designed for Cheery Lynn Designs, using their super sweet Brad the Reindeer Die. I also used a couple of their beautiful doilies as well, and will list them below. I hope you enjoy my post for today, and as always, thank you for stopping by!

On my card for today, I decided to use this sweet design paper from Imaginisce, it's an oldie I think. I also used red and green embossed card stock to layer with. For the doilies I selected Cheery Lynn's beautiful Priscilla Doily and Sophia's Heart, both cut using white card stock.

Brad the Reindeer was cut using two Bazzill bling card stock colors, and all other pieces were cut using white, then colored with Copics. I did add some bling to his collar.

The ribbon is satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the cabochon is also from there. Lastly I added some sewing. Super easy and fun card to create.


Other Supplies:
Bazzill card stock, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Really Reasonable Ribbon cabochon, Sewing, Copics, Imaginisce design paper.
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!

Hugs to all,
Cheryl

Frosty the Snowman with Laurie Schmidt

3:00 AM 0 Comments

Laurie here from Stamping Up North sharing a cheerful and festive Christmas card today!

I started out with a pierced circle on a white card stock panel, and did some layering. I added some beautiful snowflakes for a background for Frosty the Snowman. He's so cute...I just love his carrot nose! 


Then I made some Poinsettias with the poinsettia strip....love that die! It cuts 6 at a time of 3 different sizes, perfect for layering. I added some pearls in their centers, and a few holly leaves at the bottom.

To finish it all off, I stamped the sentiment in black and added a scalloped rectangle frame.



Here's a list of the dies I used:

Best Wishes by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi everyone!  Today I planned my card around this lovely Best Wishes Sentiment Square die that I just picked up on clearance at  Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love these word dies in squares, circles and ovals.  It's so easy to build a card around them and the beautiful font creates a wonderful focal point on projects.


The square fit perfectly in many of the doilies and for this card I used the Dutch Daisy Square Doily.  I used white and blue with a creamy tan thrown in to add to the bridal theme. I used my go-to Floral Bouquet Kit for the leaves.  All of these leaves came from the same set.  The flowers are actually from the Embellishments #3 die set.  Cheery Lynn has such a wide range of flower dies but I wanted to play with something a little different and I liked the light, airy quality these created.

Hello there Cheery Lynn die lovers.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a colorful Christmas card featuring the pretty Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I'm also including a video tutorial for the poinsettia flower below.
I love the poinsettia die because it's just so versatile.  Today I'm using some digital Christmas papers from Graciellie Design for some of the layers mixed with some red Distress Ink paper I created.  It's a really interesting look.  I cut the layers of petals and shaped them a bit and then assembled.  I then added some greenery using the Pine Branches die.
My digital sentiment is from Graciellie Design as well.

Joy to the World by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Cheery Lynn Fans it's JULIE here today. Gosh I can't believe how fast we are now approaching the end of the year and it will soon be Thanksgiving Day for all our American friends. So today my card is inspired by this celebration.


I started by distressing my 2 layers of Maja Design papers at the edges and layered onto my card. I cut out my wreath in 3 shades of paper from the same pad, cutting 2 of my wreaths so they would stretch out a little larger than the base one. The cut was hidden by my drop shadowed reindeer.


My large sunflower was coloured with Copic Pens and Micro Beads added into the centre. The smaller sunflowers I added Flowersoft into the centres and also touches onto the wreath. My berries were coloured with Copic and 2 layers of Glossy accents added letting them dry between coats. Finishing with arranging my bouquet onto my card.

Joy To The World by Debbie Brownmiller

3:30 AM 1 Comments

A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie back with you from Debbie's Time Out. Today I would like to share with you a way of using the Aspen Forest  frame as a embossing folder.
For the base of the card I used the Aspen Forest  on foil paper. To emboss it instead of cutting it I placed a rubber embossing mat on top of the paper and it embosses instead of cutting. I then just added metal embossing powders  in copper, silver and gold and heat set them. I then added a bit of black ink to tone it down. What a beautifully embossed background this die made.
Here I layered the deer from the Fancy Reindeer set. The Joy To The World sentiment is one of the dies from the Joy to the World Wreath set. A piece of ribbon was layered along the bottom. This was a quick and simple  card for anyone wanting quick cards to give to that special person. I hope I have encouraged you to play with some of your dies to emboss with as well as cut with.

Thank You for visiting the blog today and for the comments you leave. They are always appreciated.

Veterans Day with Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 2 Comments

Hi, welcome back to another clean and simple card with Cheery Lynn Designs
Since today is Veterans Day, I wanted to send out a "Thank You" to all our soldiers who have fought for our freedom. 


I used 3 die cuts to make this card....so you can make several and personalize the centers. I added pop dots behind the blue square and star. Then stamp any sentiment you like in black ink. Ta Da! 



Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to give thanks to a Veteran.
Have a great day! 
Hugs Lisa

Christmas Tags with Maggi

3:30 AM 0 Comments

We all need quick this time of year and I've got just the project for you!  Bonus, it's a project you can have fun making with the kids too.  Just die cut a variety of shapes with Cheery Lynn Designs dies, assemble into cute little tags and you've got quick, but oh so cute gift tags that will give your gifts, that extra special something.


On this tag I used two ovals from the Oval Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies 6 Piece Die Set and topped that with a Christmas tree diecut with the Christmas Tree Shaker Die.  The "to & from" words were die cut with the To And From Gift Envelope set.  Then I punched a hole at the top, added an eyelet and ribbon and it's ready to go.  Gift tags need to be quick and easy and this sure fits the bill.


Here's another tag that is built on a white scalloped oval diecut with the Oval Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies.   Then I layered on a red  Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily, next a blue layer cut with Nesting Doll- Oval #2 5 Piece Die Set and finally topped with Patches The Snowman .


Now this moose is one of my favorites!  He's from the Merry Christmoose set.  He's layered over patterned paper die cut with the French Flair Pierce And Cut Tool  and the red cardstock base is die cut with the Horizon French Flair Boutique Stacker Frames.


Here's a view of the back of each tag.  The fun thing about tags is that you can use your scraps.   All my scraps are from Graphic 45's Winter Wonderland collection and I was so happy to have a used for all those little pieces of my cherished Graphic 45 papers!

Merry Christmas Tag with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 2 Comments
 Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Thursday to you all!
Today I have a super fun and easy Christmas tag to share, and if you like fast and easy, then this one would be perfect!

All layers are cut out in white, I used 4 dies, and will list them below. I then just glued the Mandala Doily 1 to the Royal Scandinavia Doily, and then popped the Dusty Miller Square to them using foam tabs.  I did the same with the Mirror tag, after stamping my sentiment of course. The sentiment was stamped in black ink. The holly and berries were colored using Copic markers.  I did use a white on white design paper for those, that is why you see a print. Love the look it gives though.

The tag takes less than 10 minutes to make, and if you prep enough for more tags, it will go by even faster. I think these are perfect for Christmas gifts. Last year I did at least 1 for each person.

Cheery Lynn Supplies Used:
DL280 Royal Scandinavia Doily (used for the base of my tag)
DL326 Mandala Doily 1
B884 Dusty Miller Square
CABD74 Mirror 
B846 Christmas Bell 7  (for holly and berries)
S165 Best Glue Ever
Big Sister Die cutting machine

Other supplies:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Satin and foam squares
Stamp by JustRite Designs

Thank you so much for looking and have a lovely day!

Hugs to all,

"Peeking Penguin Pal" with Laurie Schmidt

3:00 AM 0 Comments


Look who's peeking in your window......

It's one of the Penguin Pals!

 He's looking pretty cute wearing his Santa hat while looking through the beautiful arched window. I think he wants to come inside and warm up...LOL!

The window A die makes a cut into the paper, so you can see right through to the inside. (Just think of all the possibilities with this die.) That's where I adhered the Penguin Pal and a couple of trees

I decided to decorate the window with a bow and tiny holly from the Christmas Wreath set. Then I added an enamel dot and stamped the sentiment on the bottom.





Here's a list of the Cheery Lynn dies I used:
