Our Weekly Spotlight Top 3 and Gorgeous New Release Dies!


Hi and Good Morning everyone. :)

Wow! there were some beautiful, intricate and very creative entries last week to our 'shaped' challenge, and it was another tough week for our DT to narrow it down to just 3.  So our Top 4 in order of entry this week are:

09 - Betty
10 - Joann
14 - Coops

Well done ladies, just fabulous creations!  Please contact us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge to display on your blog.

Now its such an exciting day today!!! We are showcasing some stunning new release dies on our Cheery Lynn Inspiration Blog so pop over and take a look at all the fabulous creations made by the DT!


My card today uses 3 of the new release dies: Spooky Tree, Ornamental Gate and just one of the gorgeous labels from the Sentiment Frames set.

I used a 6 x 6 card base and layered black bazzil cardstock, papers and the spiders web corner from the Lace Corner Deco H set for my background. 

I then joined together 2 of the Ornamental Gate dies (to make a fence) and placed the Spooky Tree on top. 

The fun letters were made from the LSLC alpabet set and I handwrote the 'To You' with a versamark pen and heat-embossed with white powder on the Mini Sentiment Label.  The moon was actually made from an insert from another of the really versatile mini-tags & labels.

This is a such a fun new release, packed with lots of different themes so I hope you find time to check them out, and I also hope you find time to enter our challenge this week too.

Thanks so much for visiting our blog today - have a smashing week!
