Cheery Lynn March Blog Hop

 Hello everyone and Welcome to Cheery Lynn Designs March Release Hop. Today all of the Cheery Lynn Designers will be showcasing the IOE Embossing Folders & Plates. So grab yourself a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy todays hop.

You should have arrived from Maggi's Blog.  if not you will want to start at the beginning, The Cheery Lynn Designs Blog so you don't miss any of the designers posts for today.
For my card today I chose to use Cheery Lynns Beautiful dies along with the New IOE folder and plate. LOVE using these, as it was fun creating the "Thank You so much " border, and then the "Thank You" in the center of my card.

I wanted you to be able to see it really well , so I chose to use this shimmer cardstock, and then emboss the sentiment and highlight using some silver Brilliance ink.

Layer 1 - Card Base 5 1/2" x 5 1/4" light grey
Layer 2- 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" dark grey card stock, then 5" x 5" design paper from
Layer 3 is Cheery Lynns Royal Scandinavian Doily , then cut in half on the diagonal. Next I cut my dark grey layer, then my shimmer layer that I used the IOE Thank you Wishes Folder and IOE
Square Plate

Layer 4-Next for the embossed sentiment area I embossed the Thank you , then cut out using the oval dies. Next for the dark grey I chose to use Cheery Lynns Fancy frame called Mirror CABD-74

Layer 5- Flowers and these were cut using the Cheery Lynn Tea Rose Small die, and some light pink dp. Next I chose to do the Glass Flower Technique and distress the edges of each petal with 2 different red inks. Lastly I added some Really Reasonable Ribbon Pearls to the centers(8mm and 10mm)

Cheery Lynn Dies and IOE's used:
IOE Thank You Wishes Embossing Folder
IOE Square Plates
Royal Scandinavian Doily Die
Wreath Strip
Tea Rose Small for flowers
Mirror CABD-74

Design paper is Authentique Uncommon Collection. I have to say I LOVE this collection,

Beautiful card Cheryl and I love how the embossing really 'pops' on the shimmer cardstock. So pretty with the color palette you used.

Love the stitches, and the foil mat...It is so easy to see the size of that EF with your beautiful card. Thank you for the inspiration.

Ina Nelson said...

Your card is beautiful. I spent so much time looking at all the elements you have on your card. Thank you.

Wonderful card, love all the great embossed texture and fabulous layering.

Nancy said...

WOW!!!! I always love your cards but this one is exceptional. I am almost drooling over the shimmer card stock and wonder if the little design I see on it was something you embossed, or if it came that way? I noted your glass flowers immediately and must try that technique soon. I have not bought any Cheery Lynn dies yet but always save them to my wish list. I think I have to start whittling away at the list. This card is pure delight and I imagine anyone who would receive it would treasure it. Beautiful job! Thank you for sharing.
