Shabby Chic

Hello everyone, today I have a Shabby Chic Bird Cage card I created for Cheery Lynn using their beautiful dies. On my card today I chose to use 5 dies, and love how they all look together. This card was super fun and easy to create!! LOVE that!

Cheery Lynn Dies:
B198 Bird Cage
D138 Mini Butterflies
B307 Sweet Williams Strip
DL280 Scandinavian Doily
B587 Step Card Bundle (used the greenery in this kit)

I started out by using Graphic45 design paper and Bazzill card stock. Its been awhile since I have pulled out the G45 papers...hehehehe  I also used this beautiful shimmer embossed butterfly card stock, its the white you see on my card base , bird cage, Doily and layer 1.

Sweet William strip was used to cut out all flowers in coordinating design paper. Love how sweet they look with the little pearls. For my greenery I chose the Step Card bundle, it has some gorgeous greenery in this set. And the sweet little butterfly came from the Mini Butterflies, it too is cut out using the same dp. Love how all these dies compliment each other.

I embellished my card with sewing, and a small bow(Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon) at the top of the cage :)

Thank you for looking, and hope you enjoyed my post for today!
hugs to all,

Life Without Cats...

 Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!
Today's card features The Projects Bin "Feline Good" Stamp and Die set! This set is absolutely DARLING and I knew it would go perfectly with Graphic45 Raining Cats and Dogs paper , I forgot I had bought the paper stack , as I was looking for some scraps in all my Graphic45 paper. Love how this sweet card turned out!
 I started by using some scraps and black card stock for each layer. I stamped the Kitty on a piece from another G45 stack, and then cut it out with matching die. I added some some cheeks to this kitty.

Flowers were cut using the checked pattern in this collection, & Cheery Lynns Small Tea Rose die, then I did the Glass flower technique that can be found here in my Tutorials.

Sentiment was done using the Ombre technique that I have here.

Lastly to embellish I added a Meow plastic piece, and some vintage pearls to the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
hugs to all!

Happy Birthday

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!!
Today's card was designed for Cheery Lynn Design & The Project Bin, using the Beautiful dies and stamps they carry. I wanted my card to have a Spring feel, and this delivers just that :) It was also created for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge this week, to create a Birthday, wedding, baby, or some kind of occasion card. Mine is a Birthday!
 On my card I used lots of darling dies from Cheery Lynn, and I am loving them all on this one!!! I also used The Project Bin sentiment stamp from the set called "Born Yesterday" this set is all about Birthdays!

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies( brown polka dot) I also added a bow, flower, and viva pearl pen to this cutie
B682 Quadrafoil Tag , cut using the Pink hearts design paper.
LPC4 Circle Pierce set cut out brown card stock, and tree dp from Pebbles
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily, cut out in white card stock and layered on card front
B180 Princess Tree , cut out in green card stock, and matching design paper, and layered. I also added some flowers , and branches to this one.
B216 Wreath Strip used as branches under the tree for a filler

I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out. I love all the layers , and colors, its perfect for a spring birthday!

The tree was super fun to work with, and I will have to do another of this one soon! I love the wreath strip pieces behind it, as it gives some dimension and fills in. I added the little hearts in the dp, thought it would be cute. I lastly added some flower embellishments to this!

My Big Bow was created using Really Reasonable Ribbons February Ribbon monthly kit. I also used some RRR for the bunny bow. LOVE how cute this bunny is! All embellishments are also from RRR

Sewing was done using a very light pink thread and my sewing machine.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think, I truly enjoy reading them!
