Easter Greetings

Hi there peeps! Hope your weekend is going well.  My day over at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.  I have a cute Easter card to share today.  The dies I used are a must have for Easter crafting.  

 I started with covering my card stock with some pattern paper and layered it with the Quatrefoil A2 Frame die.  This die is a go to for me.  It can really set the mood for a card.  Either very simple and casual or can be added to a card for more depth and texture. 

 I than added my ribbon and made my big loopy bow.  From here the Nesting Dolls Tags 2 5 piece set was used for more interest.  I hand cut a little banner and stamped my tag.  I die cut the Bunnies and added foam adhesive for dimension.  From here I added my flowers.  Using both the Gardenias and the sweet Christine flowers.

 Well that is it for me folks!  Happy weekend!  Cherry

Altered Rabbit Molds

Hi guys!  My day over at the RRR blog.  I got some cute Easter ornaments for you today.  

 I used vintage jello molds that had these rabbits on them.  I painted them with chalk paint and distressed them up for a worn appearance with a sanding block and ink.  After that I sprinkled some white glitter on them. 

 I stitched up some crepe paper fringe and adhered it to the edges along with some pom pom fringe.

 I topped each one off with stamped banners and burlap flowers.

These are perfect for an Easter Tree...or could be used in an Easter basket or on a Spring wreath.

Hope you enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry

Spool bird houses

Hi there!  It is my day over at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog.  Every time I work with their products I truly fall in love.  These little Tiny bird houses are just so sweet.  I assembled three of them and paired them with vintage wooden spools.  

 Each one was painted with red chalk paint and distressed and inked.  I than added some pattern papers to the roofs.  Great way to use up those little paper scraps we just can't part with. 

 I wound each spool with twine and added Flower Stackers  to the base of each one.  Little banners were cut and hand-stamped with sweet sentiments and added to the spools with stick pins. 

 I also stacked them and added them to the roof of each bird house.  They were painted with white chalk paint. 

 I also added plates from the  Keys and Plates set.

A few red buttons were added and I was done.  I hope you enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry

St. Patties Day

 Hi guys!  Thought I better share these before March gets here and is gone!  Just a couple of fun St. Patties cards.

 I used RRR ribbons and  some Cheery Lynn Diecuts to create these cards. 

 This one was fun to make, I turned a nesting die into a shaker card using some acetate.

 Shaker die cards can be a bit of work but so worth it in the end.  I added confetti and a mini luck diecut inside along with an image.

Well that is it for me.....hugs, Cherry

thinking of you bee card

Hi there Cheery Lynn Peeps.  My day over at the blog.  I have a cute little card for you today.  I think if I make enough Spring /Summer cards the warmer seasons will magically appear.  Isn't that how it works? 

 Isn't this Bee die cute?  I love him.  I cut him out twice and layered him for a shadow effect.

 I layered him on pattern papers and a Honey comb lattice die.

I added back in a few of the "honeycombs" for fun.  I than added washi tapes and my thinking of you sentiment that I backed with black to make it pop.  Very easy fun card to create to give to someone special!  Thanks for visiting, Cherry
