More fun with the New Release

Hi everyone, well it's Friday... let the weekend begin!

Today I would normally do a post for our current weekly challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs but I am having so much fun with the new release dies I couldn't help myself.  I made a project using some of my New Release dies and I was having so much fun I pulled out some of my oldies but goodies to do a second project.

For my first project, I want to show you a card I made using the new Lacey Christmas Ornaments.  They are so delicate and pretty and I know you are going to have a lot fun using them.  They even have a built-in hanger so you can actually hang them up!  How cool is that!  I also thought the Merry Christmas sentiment was the perfect accompaniment to make a lovely Christmas Card.

Here's a closer look so you can see what I mean.



For this project I used the following dies:
B215 - Expandable Tiny Borders
B216 - Wreath Strip
B160 - Queen Anne's Lace Border
B186 - Merry Christmas Set
DL227 - Lacey Christmas Ornaments
XL-7 - Oval - Classic - LG Stackers Nesting Dies

As well and in keeping with this weeks challenge theme Corner Adorners (must use a corner embellishment), my second project is a card in honor of a sweet friend.    I know she loves these colors together and the inspiration for the color combination came from her.  For this card I used the Spring Flower Burst Doily die with Angel Wing and cut it once in each color.  I then cut and layered sections of the doily with each of the colors to get this effect.  It is a little time-consuming but the results are so worth it.  I hope you will give it a try : )

Here is photo of how it came together:




For this project I used the following dies:
B117S - Mini Fanciful Flourish
B149 - Cuties 1
B165 - Lace Corner Deco E
D137 - Sweet Williams
DL221 - Spring Flower Burst Doily
XM-7 - Oval

Don't forget to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Corner Adorners (must have a corner embellishment)!

You have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs and with all of the wonderful new dies announced this week I have no doubt you will be able to put your winnings to good use!

Also, for more fantastic inspiration I hope you can visit the other talented ladies from the Cheery Lynn Design Team.


Have a Cheery Day!
