Happy Birthday!

Hi! Happy Monday! 
I was able to make this fun shaker card using Cheery Lynn Designs new shaker cards. They really are so fun to make! I usually don't use the color yellow much but I decided to use it for this card because of the glittery candles that I used stickles on the flames. The patterned papers are pretty old from Colorbok that I bought once upon a time at Walmart. 

The cake of course had to be CHOCOLATE!!! The font inside was typed up on the computer and then printed on the background of the actually reads "Happy Birthday To You" but because I placed so many sequins and metal you can't see it

I added some yellow medium roses and leaves from Cheery Lynn Designs for a  finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Getting ready to see some get projects this upcoming CHA! 
Have a great week!

Confidential With Graphic 45

Happy Sunday everyone!
Ok so I know that is an arctic cold freeze going around here in North America....but isn't it still supposed to stay warm and sunny here in Arizona? Im so tired of this blah rainy days! 
Well, after I made card using Graphic 45 papers I decided to make another card using more Graphic 45 papers from the collection Communique. It is very vintage looking. 

I layered papers sideways and used a few stickers with pop dots. 

Lastly, I used up some black flowers and bling. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great week! 
Be sure to stop by this week for our monthly blog hop with Cheery Lynn Designs!

Love With Graphic 45

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! 
I was lucky enough to start my weekend yesterday. So, my hubby and I went out for lunch and a bit of shopping. Today,  wanted to make a card for my own stash using the beautiful Graphic 45 papers Mon Amour. I bought them a while back like I buy so many Graphic 45 papers and then I tend to hoard them? They are just so beautiful. 

So I broke them out to make this Valentine Card for the upcoming holiday. I fussy cut out the man and lady and placed pop dots behind them. I used some premade flowers throughout. 

I placed a flower in the lady's hair too

Here is a close up of the shaker heart. They are so fun to make. I made a tiny double looped bow for the top of the heart. 

You can see here it is a little bulky but beautiful! 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great weekend!

Valentine Shaker Card With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! How is everyone's New Year Going? Well, this past weekend Ive been busy with my household being ill from that icky flu going around. Me, I felt a little icky one day, but been loading up with vitamins and lots of sleep to avoid far so good!  Meanwhile, I was a little behind in making some cards for a bit. I was able to quickly make this fun Valentine card for the next holiday for Cheery Lynn Designs. 

I used some soft creams, kraft and pinks for the colors. The "heart shaker" is the focus of the card. I added "miniature roses" in 3 different pinks along the edge with pink sequins in the center of the heart. The sentiment was stamped in brown ink and fussy cut the flag edges. 

Behind the heart is a the lovely "french pastry" with real lace behind it. It was leftover lace from my daughter's wedding innovations that I made over 6 months ago. Inside the shaker I used some pink sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Hope you enjoyed! 
Have a great day

Champagne Bottle Tag With Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy New Year!!!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's Eve! 
Today, Im sharing a quick tag for a champagne bottle using some Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. 
The "horizon fishtail banner" is one of my all time favorite die cuts. I used all three dies, the largest in black and then the middle and smallest in white. I glued them all together and placed white stickers in the center for buttons. 

"pretty pretty bow" was die cut in silver paper. I used the larger of the two bows. I then added two stars from "pierced stars" The white base behind the "banners" is 2 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches long. It was scored at 2 inches and I used the smallest of the "circle stitch" for the bottle opening. These fun tags can be used for any occasion and easy to make. 

Have a Happy New Year!!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Bah Humbug! With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is getting ready for the holiday season since it is just around the corner! 
I recently received this sheep die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs. I have seen some adorable stamps with sheep and BAAAAAHHHH Humbug. I thought I would make the sheep Scrooge! LOL
(I really love the holidays, but this is the perfect card for that Scrooge you might know?)

I added the hat from "skeleton" and the scarf from "gingerbread family" The fun "holly" was cut in green and then the leaves colored with copic markers. 

I can't stop using the stitched squares, ovals, rectangles and circles. So if you don't have them in your collection it is certainly a must!!! 
I love the layered "poinsettia" too. Ive used it so many times over so many years of Christmas cards. I added a white pearl in the center. for contrast. Lastly but not least the fun "alphabet" for the title. I will say at first it looked a bit smaller but.....the font works wonderfully on a card! Not too big and not too small. 

There are some pearls on the top of the hat and of course my favorite google eyes!  I free handed the grumpy frown and eyebrows with a fine tip black marker.

Hope you enjoyed! 
Thanks for stopping by today 
Happy Holidays! See you next year!

The Stockings With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Today, Im sharing another fun holiday card with 
I love the adorable "stocking with presents" I thought about adding some extra colors on the presents but then I kept the whole card with creams, whites and of course my favorite color RED! 

The beautiful "horizon circles" are so delicate and have such an elegant edge so I wanted to use them today with the center of "circle stitch" It's a perfect match in the center. 

I stamped the Verve sentiment in black on the middle sized "horizon circle" Added some liquid appliqué for the snow/fluff throughout the stocking. Lastly, a bit of bling...I can't help myself! LOL
