Upcycled 4th of July Altoid Tin

  Always excited when it is my day over at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cut Blog!  I love to create with their chipboard.  I have the grand Independence Day on the brain and created this up cycled Altoid tin in honor of it.  I first started with the Altoid Inserts Fairy Tale Frame .
They were painted with silver metallic paint.  I trimmed one side down so I could fit it in the wider part of the Altoid tin.



 I than glittered the frames along with the stars from the Celestial Shape Set.



Next I covered the back side of the tin with pattern paper and than added handmade stitched paper fringe.



I inserted pattern paper and one side of the frame. 



 I adorned the one side with the glittered chipboard pieces and a sentiment sticker.





The other side of tin I added an old fashion image and than framed with the frame.



I added a few more stars and buttons to accent and was done!  Here it is complete.











I see more of these in my future...and minty fresh breath.  lol.  Thanks for visiting, Cherry

Cheery Lynn blog Hop!!!

Happy Monday....time for a Cheery Lynn Blog hop!!!  You should have found your way here from Lisa's blog.  There is a fantastic new line up of goodies just in time for Summer! I made two cards using some of the cutest dies.  First up the new Sunflower die.  It is so pretty.

 I cut the sunflower petals out twice and paper pieced the petals with two different floral papers.  I also used the tags four die set to stamp my sentiment.  For the middle of the sunflower I layered it with the other sweet older Sunflower die. 





 I love this die and will be using it a lot.






My next card is just plain fun!!!  Would be perfect to use for someone's Summer birthday!


    I used the new Whimsical sun and cloud 4 piece die set to create this fun scene along with the new flip flops and board shorts die. 




 I love that sweet sun!!!  Adorable!




Well that is it for me....next stop on blog is Bonnie's blog.  Have fun and be inspired!  Cherry

Cheery Lynn card

Hi there...it is my day at the Cheery Lynn blog.  I have a simple little card to share.  Sometimes I like to leave a card with out a sentiment so it can fit any occasion.


 I used the 3d dahlia flower stackable for my main focal point.  I added buttons to the top of them and used the Build a flower #1 Petals/leaves for my leaves.




 From here I added the Curls and swirls embossing folder  at the bottom as a border.



That is it for me.....Thanks for visiting, Cherry

It is well with my soul

Hi there...my day over at the RRR blog. I created an encouraging uplifting card with shabby details .


 Using Bay Leaf seam binding I tied it around the top of my card and created a shabby bow. I tucked in vintage stick pins, pom poms, and a Cherry blossom.






I used chipboard from GSLC painted it, inked, and glittered the moon and stars and used foam adhesive to create dimension.




I added my sentiment layering it below the moon and added stars stacked with buttons and rhinestones. 
That is it for me today!  Thanks for visiting, Cherry

Patriotic card

Hey there Gypsy Soul Laser Cut peeps!  Happy Wednesday.  Today I have a vintage style Patriotic card to share with you. 


 I started first by painting my chipboard pieces with chalk paint in red.  I purposely left certain areas non painted for a fun weathered look. 



 I than covered my cardstock with papers in a red, white, and blue theme.





 I than added my chipboard Word frames along with a vintage milk cap.


I than added my ribbons, a straw, and the Banner Border strip.


 Other than that a USA sticker was added and a bit of distressing with a chalk paint pen.




 I love using a mix of old and new to create something one of a kind!






Thanks for visiting the blog today!  Cherry
