For the heros



 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share with you another of the sets in the new release--the Military Dog Tags.  These are fantastic! They come with the ball chain and tags--which when cut with Silver Mirror Card stock look REAL. They have several words with them as well including Hero and USA shown here. I think they are perfect not only for patriotic holidays but also Operation Write Home Any Hero Cards to show how much you appreciate the service men and women protecting our freedoms.

Butterfly Hair Accessories


Happy Monday everyone! Today on the Globecraft & Piccolo Blog I share a great hair accessory craft. Recently I needed some vintage looking comb pieces to put in my hair and thought the Butterfly Piccolo Accents would be perfect! I was right!
 I began by applying Enamel Powder Adhesive to the butterfly chipboard and heat embossed Mermaid Tears EP to three, and Vintage Black EP to three more. All butterflies had two or more layers of heat set embossing powder. The backs of the butterflies were finished with black paint.


 The embossed butterflies were then adhered to plastic combs using E6000. They were held in place until dry.





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

Awesome New Release from Cheery Lynn!!



Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog we are introducing a NEW RELEASE!!! This fabulous new release has several items for the holidays and a few great sets for multiple uses. Today I share the new Dirt Bike, 100 Stars strip and Awesome sentiment die!
I created a ring with the classic Circle stackers to build my star frame on. I added in the Add a Flourish from the last new release to take the stars in and out of the frame like an explosion! I double cut the Dirt Bike to add a shadow to the bike. and built up foam tape under the front wheel to give the bike the illusion that it's leaping through the ring. The ring of stars was placed on a scalloped circle background which was placed on a piece of orange card stock that was embossed with the Gears Emboss plate!
This makes a great card for the extreme sports enthusiasts in your life! I will be making a particular dirt bike racer a birthday card similar to this!

Beaded Wedding Pendant



  Happy Monday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo Blog I share another jewelry project today! I printed a vintage wedding image to fit the 1½×2½" Bezel and trimmed it out. I glued the image on to the bezel, trimming closely to the edges and sanding with a file. Once dry I added black ink around the edges of the bezel. Next I adhered a vintage bead mix to the edges, randomly picking the various sizes and styles of beads For an additional accent I placed three along side the couple. Once this is completely dry, I layered on Ultra Thick Clear emboss enamel [UTEE] adhering with Enamel Powder Adhesive. I added multiple layers until the clear molten liquid was up to the level of the shortest beads. I finished the piece by hanging it from a silver ball chain.

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

Blingy Daisy Ear-bobs!


  Happy Wednesday everyone! Today on the Globecraft & Piccolo Blog I share these blingy earrings using Piccolo Charms and 3D Enamel Gel and Bling! With the Daisy Teardrop Earrings, I applied Daffodi enamel and Burnt Umber enamel to the flowers and edge of the teardrop. The 3D Enamel acts as a glue when applying individual bling pieces from the Bling on a Roll--cut apart with regular scissors.  Pieces of bling were also applied to the two largest flowers. A generous coat of Glossy Glastique was added to the teardrop charm and left to dry overnight. Jump rings were attached to the charm and French Loops make them simple hanging earrings to wear!

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