Steampunk Dies

Hi and Good Morning! :)  Todays card was inspired by some of the amazing Cheery Lynn Designs Steampunk Dies! 

I used a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and layered black bazzil card and MME paper, inking the edges slightly with DI.

I then cut the stunning Steampunk Clock die in metallic black and stainless steel card, and shadowed it for effect.  The image is a Kenny K digi stamp and she was coloured in PM's and backed with Steampunk Wings.  I matted and layered onto Circle Stacker and Scalloped circle stacker.

The Gears were also cut in a mix of silver and black and layered and fastened together with silver brads for a finishing touch.

All dies used on this card are:

B357 - Clock with Angel Wing - Steampunk
B340 - Gears
B359 - Steampunk Wings
XL-5 - Scalloped circle stackers
L-4 - Circle Stackers

Birthday Gift

Hi and Good Morning everyone, :)  Well in my part of the world, the summer has ended, and autumn fast approaches with a change in colours as well as the weather.  So todays card is a little more subtle in its hues, and uses some lovely Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and layered MME papers and white american crafts cardstock.  All dies were cut with this card too.
I cut the Tiny Bubbles border and stuck on the apricot top layer panel and also used the gorgeous Cape Cod Doily behind my image.  This is so delicate and beautiful, but cuts like a dream!  My image is matted and layered onto Square Stackers, Scalloped squares and the delighful  Horizon Square Stacker
I used Alisons Ribbons along the bubble border, and added a small strip of ric-rac ribbon on top.  The flower was made from the quick and easy Shasta Daisy strip, held together with a pearl brad, and for a finishing touch I added a dragonfly and some pearls.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week where our theme is Things with Wings.

The Most Beautiful Border Die. Ever!

Hi and Good Morning everyone, back again today, sharing another card created and inspired by so many gorgeous Cheery Lynn Designs dies. :)

I used an 8 x 8 inch blank card base for this card, and layered K&Co papers and white American Crafts cardstock, and a stamped image from Lili of the Valley.

I created the bottom border using in my opinion, the Most Beautiful Border Die. Ever! - Fall Leaf Mesh Border, its just stunning.  I layered it to shadow against green cardstock, and also added an additional layer of leaves in green for contrast.  The top paper panel is edged in the Anastasia Lace border, and and the base doily is the Sunflower Doily.  My image is matted onto the matching Fall Leaf Doily, and backed with green card cut from the angel wing included.

I created the flowers using the Black Eyed Susan flower strip and the smaller petals are from the Daisy Flower strip.  I sanded this coral coloured card to soften and add shading.  Finally I added some pearls for a little bit of bling.

All dies used on this card are:

B325 - Fall Leaf Mesh Border
DL249 - Fall Leaf Doily
B338 - Black Eyed Susan Flower Strip
B259 - Daisy Flower Strip
B117 - Fanciful Flourish
DL181 - Large Sunflower Doily
B136 - Anastasia Lace Border.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you have a smashing week!
