G'Day Love With Cheery Lynn Designs

G'Day Love! 
It's Lisa back this week with another New Release Diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs!
 It's Kaptain Kangaroo! 
The name of the diecut takes me back to my child time. I remember watching Captain Kangaroo on Saturday mornings. Such a great memory and blast from the past. When I was thinking about what I wanted to make with him, I thought about so many different backgrounds. Suddenly, I thought of one of my favorite movies from years ago, Crocodile Dundee and his love for his country. It then became about love and hearts. I used two of the smaller and one of the largest heart from Two of Hearts. I diecut it in red and Kraft paper and cut the inside of the red out and placed it on top of the Kraft paper. I stamped Love on the bottom corner heart and added little white dots on the edges. 

There are two Ivy Corner Flourishes in opposite corners and in the center behind the Kangaroo is a Priscilla Doily. Love it! Last but not least I added little flowers from Miniature Rose with little pearls in the centers. 

I cut the Kaptain Kangaroo out once in Kraft and one in red cardstock. I used the G'day for the inside and I used white cardstock for his ears and black cardsock for his eyes and colored his nose with a black copic.

Hello everyone! TGIF
I have had a roller coaster of drama this week at work! Crazy and Stressful! Thank goodness I'm off this weekend and all next week! Off to Vegas Baby tomorrow! Excited! 
So today I'm sharing a new card that I made a few days ago, but I haven't had the chance to upload it until today. It is inspired by this week's cardabilities #127

Lots of mixed media here. No patterned paper, but lots of inking, flowers and bling.

Im so glad I was able to use some of my old stamps and old flowers from my stash. 

Here is the sketch # 127  Thanks 

Have a wonderful day!

Thankful For You With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi, Its Lisa back again sharing more of the New Release by Cheery Lynn Designs
Today, I'm sharing Tom the Turkey! It truly is a beautiful diecut with amazing details. So originally, I colored the turkey with copic markers and well since I'm not a great at coloring it was a disaster! So THANKFULLY (pun intended LOL) you can be like me and still get a fantastic looking turkey! 

I diecut the turkey once in Kraft cardstock and once in brown cardstock. I fussy cut out the brown pieces that I wanted to highlight and glued them to the top of the Kraft. I then diecut just a piece of red and yellow for the feet and beak then layered them on top. Easy and pretty fast! I chalked the edges of the Kraft and Tom is ready to go! 

The base of the Kraft card is 5 x6 and I cut, chalked and then embossed another piece of Kraft 4.5 x 5.5 in the background. For the Birch tree with Cute Critters, I used the same brown cardstock as Tom the Turkey. I diecut 3 different color strips, red, orange, and yellow of Flourish Leaf Set. I then cut the leaves off and placed throughout the tree. You will have leftovers but you can always save them for another autumn card. :) The New Grass Border 2 was cut twice in yellow and placed on the bottom. I stamped my sentiment and diecut it out with Pierced Stacker #4 with chalking on the edges. I used the little owl and the squirrel to finish this Thankful Card to a friend or loved one! 

A few pop dots underneath, but ready to mailed in a regular envelope...

Kindness With The Shabby Tea Room Summer Picnic #256!

Hello Shabby Girls! 
Today, I'm sharing with you a new card for The Shabby Tea Room inspired by this week's photo. Lots to choose from in this photo and I was planning to add some tea items but I also really wanted to make a vase and show the basket and towel. I ended up having to cut it back because it started to look almost like too know what I mean? lol

I used two French Pastry doily and French Pastry Tiny Doily and an Ivy Flourish Corner that is made from Cheery Lynn Designs and can be bought from or from the Cheery Lynn Designs Store. The vase was made with my cricut and I embossed it with tiny white stamps and added a resin butterfly in the center. I stamped the basket in brown ink and the fussy cut out the edges. The stamp is from Heartfelt Creations called Basketweave Background. I added pink flowers from Recollections. 

To represent the towel that reminds me of my mother and my husband's mother, I cut white cardstock and added some pink lines to the edge with my copic marker. 

Here is the beautiful photo inspiration!

Thinking Of You

Happy Sunday! 
Well, today I wanted to make a card based off the sketch from Viva La Verve July #3.
I bought these Prima papers recently from  They are gorgeous! So soft and vintage.  It tried to find some matching flowers but I only had some pink flowers in this color....close enough...I wasn't in the mood to make them

The leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs and I added some pearls in a few places. I distressed all the edges with my Distrezz It All. The stamp is super sorry I don't remember who made it? 

A closer shabby chic....

Here is the sketch this week! Thank you! 

Have a great day!

Hello Foxy!

Today, I'm sharing a new card that I made yesterday for my youngest daughter. She loves Foxes and I have a stamp that I bought at Michael's in the dollar section but then I also bought these cute little stickers from Recollections. They were perfect and I was lucky to have matching rust color paper too. 

The birch tree, bunny and leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I love the stitched hillside diecut from Lawn Fawn. I stamped Hello and fussy cut it out and chalked some of the edges.  

The Kraft background I ran through my bark embossed folder. This card took a half hour to make... 
Gotta Love that! 

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!

New Release Trick Or Treat With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi everyone! 
Yes I know it is July...however, it is time to share the New Release with Cheery Lynn Designs
Lots of wonderful diecuts! Here are just a few of them for your Halloween projects. 

I knew I had to use these fabulous pumpkins for my first card. I also love the trick or treat title. I used diamond glaze on both the pumpkins faces and the title to give it an extra shine.  The bats are part of the new collection and there are 6 of them! The spiderweb is an older diecut but is great to use with the new collection. 

A closer view...
