Shaking Up Some Cheer


Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I am playing along with this weeks challenge Sparkle and Shine. I have created a shaker card with the circle stackers and Horizon Circle set! 

I love how easy it is to cut a frame for your shaker I simply lined up a smaller circle inside my Horizon die, secured them with some washi tape, and cut them together in my machine.
I cut all of my snowflake pieces in white which was a little stark compared to the rest of my paper. I used pearl mists to add gold and pearl shimmer to my snowflakes and dull the stark white card stock.

For the shaker I cut a circle for the background and a circle out of clear acetate. I adhered the acetate to the frame with a clear lacquer.

I then added foam tape to the back of the frame to give my sequins and sparkles a space in which to move. If you desire chunkier shakings use another layer or two of foam tape. Make sure you have all of your pieces touching so there are no holes for shakings to escape!

I stack my shakings in the middle before adhering the frame. Here I used sequins, snowflake glitter and some crystals.

When you adhere the frame, make sure all sides are secure and then give it a shake to make sure it works! 

I added my shimmer snowflakes to the frame and then used a clear gem as a spacer for a smaller snowflake to be placed on top. It added just the right height and was clear so could not interfere with the top layer of snowflake

As a final touch I added crystals here and there to centers and along the flurry strip!

An Ornament Card


Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I am playing along with this weeks challenge Red & Green. I chose to create an ornament with the Circle Stacker Die and assorted shaped dies and doilies.  Below is a brief tutorial with all the tips.

I  began by aging the papers that I die cut with ink and layered them along with the Dancing Snow Flurries.

I created pine branches on brown jute strung. I began by straightening and stiffening the string with a coating of lacquer.

Once straight, I spun the lollipop strips onto the jute string in a fashion to create pine branches.
 
The circle  die cut was also aged with ink and then smeared with red oil pastel to create a dimensional ball shape. The "ball" was attached to the card base with foam tape and the pine branches and poinsettias were attached with lacquer. a pine cone was created with a cutie die and lacquered to create shine. poinsettias and the bow and pine cone topped the "ball"

Winter Greetings


Happy Tuesday everyone! On the Cheery Lynn Blog today I share a seasonal holiday card using some of my favorite elements! Even though I  live in a VERY WARM state, snowflakes are one of my favorite design elements for winter. For this card I used the Snowflake Wonder Doily  along with Snowflowers sets and the Snowflakes plate. The elegant Fancy Deer paired with some shiny florals and bling. Below is a brief tutorial with all the tips.


Begin by cutting the Snowflake Wonder Doily without the center die out of Kraft and mist with an opaque white mist. I masked the center of the doily with a square. 

Once I was happy with the look of the outer of the doily, I misted lightly from high so that it looked like a light misting of snow.

I then returned my mask to the doily to mist with a blue-hued mica mist. I heat set this mist to hold the colors in place.

I placed a red square behind the doily to coordinate with the red flowers that will be placed on the card and to help the doily to pop off the card. I then layered on snowflakes and a Fancy Deer with antlers--to add extra sparkle the white pieces were misted with a Pearl white mist. This focal square was place on the top two-thirds of the card.

I then began layering my florals on top of the mini flourish band. I built the flowers and added beads to the centers with a clear lacquer. The petals of the leaves and flowers were also painted with the lacquer to add shine [see last photo for the full effect]

Bling was added to several snowflake centers to add more sparkle.
