Surf's Up!


Hi, it's Gini here today, hopping over from my normal post on the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, to share with you a shaped card for this week's challenge. It's been such a fun week at Cheery Lynn Designs and Imaginisce! The CLD DT each recieved a very generous package from Imaginisce, from their Makin' Waves Collection.

This week our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is

Shaped Cards 
Here are the rules:

  • You MUST follow the theme and use at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die, of course, we would love to see more than one.
  • You MUST add a link to your blog post in the InLinkz at the end of that post; no back posting, only new projects are allowed
  • You MUST link to our Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog in your post
  • You may only enter the challenge ONCE per week.
The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs. They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.

In addition, our design team members will be voting on 3 favorites who will receive a Weekly Spotlights badge to display on their blog. Be sure to come back on Wednesday to see who earned the badge.


I knew as soon as I saw the papers, I wanted to make a shaped surfboard, and while this one is a card, it would also make a really fun embellishment for a scrapbook page.


I used two different patterned papers for my surfboard background. To embellish it, I cut apart the Victorian Romance Flourish and it really looked perfect! Down the middle of the board, I put half a border of the Daisy Lace Bracelet. A flower made with Judy's Blooms completed my cuts.



My sentiment was from the Sun Kissed Die Cuts. I used chipboard flowers and the "vacation fun" circle from the Hot Summer Days Chipboard Stickers to add to my embellishment cluster.



Be sure to leave a comment on Sunday's post for a chance to win a $20 CLD gift certificate. For another way to win a CLD gift certificate, be sure to play along with our weekly challenge.
