Winter Card


 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog I share a winter card using the Birch Tree and the Fancy Deer. I began by making an embossed snowflake background with a piece of vellum. I layered snowflakes and fancy deer with torn pieces of "snow". I created depth by using foam tape. I added "shimmer" to the snow background with pan pastel. A bit of "snow" in the front and on the branches collected as glitter. My focal panel was mounted onto a matte with a bit of Snowflake Mesh Border. A bunny from the Birch Tree set and a wee Hello finish off the card.

Dimensional Trick or Treat card


  Happy Monday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo blog I create a dimensional trick or treat card using the Trick or Treat Ornament!The ornament comes with two globes and two rings for holding the globes on. For the card I used just one ring and one globe. I am holding back the 2nd ring and globe for another dimensional card or project.
I clipped off the top of the ornament where the hanger would go and heat embossed the center ring that contains the characters with Vintage Black. The silver in the vintage black collected on the ghost and the black and gold on the witch and the moon--it did perfect! For the top ring that holds down the globe I covered it with spider paper, edged the ring with black india ink and heat embossed UTEE on top to give a more aged look to the ring. I sandwiched the rings and the globe and held them together with clothespins until adhered. I applied a piece of patterned paper to the back of the ornament frame.
To finish off the front of the card, I embossed Vintage Silver to the edges of the matte and layered the globe over the accent strip so that the words Trick or Treat could be read.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by today!

Spooky Fall Tag


 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share a Spooky Fall Tag using the Birch Tree with little animals--it has a fantastic owl. My tag is layered with a decorative paper, an orange matte that reveals a piece of lace, and a piece of embossed stone-colored paper. 
I distressed the edges of the layers and chalked with pan pastel. Silver metallic pan pastel over the black iron fence and earthy brown pan pastel over the birch tree enhance the card. Small bats flutter through the trees complete the look.

Dragonfly Medallion


  Happy Monday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo Blog I share a few new releases from last month that I just love! I created a back for the Circle frame on corrugated card board. I heat embossed the backing with Mermaid Tears. Next I embossed the Circle Frame with Gilded Rose Gold. I glued the frame to the backing and added a single crystal rhinestone to each loop. Next I embossed some flower tops with the gilded rose and some with the Girls Night Out and layered them to create dimensional flowers. I bent up the petals just a bit to give a little more dimension. I finished off the flowers with a rhinestone as the centers. These were arranged as on the center of the frame.
Finally I embossed the centers of the dragonflies with the Shamrock Dreams and then embossed over the wings again with Mermaid Tears. I love the opalescent effect it gives the wings when these two powders mix! The dragonflies were place on the flowers and frame to complete the look. This embossed medallion makes a great ornamentation for a shelf of a small wall.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by today!
