Today Joan's Gardens has posted all the new dies from Cheery Lynn. This card was designed using a few of these dies. I want to let you know that we will be hosting a blog hop on Thursday using the new Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #1" dies and hope you will be back to see all the beautiful cards our guest designers will be positing. Also there is a FABULOUS prize to be given away and the details will be announced at the Blog Hop on Thursday.
I have always wanted a pond with Koi Fish so was excited to see what I could do with this die. This is the Cheery Lynn "Koi Fish" (DL219). It was die cut using white card stock. I glued it to a piece of orange design paper and cut it out around the edges. The frame is the "Fiona's Magic Window" (FRM140). Don't you love all the piercing in this frame. I think it is so pretty. The leaves are the new "Iris Leaves" (B179). They were die cut using aqua card stock and sponged with brown Distress Ink to match the design paper.
The flower was created with the Cheery Lynn "Stacker Flower #3" (SF-3). Three flowers were shaped and stacked, alternating the petals. The stamen was created with the new stamens from the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #1" set (B181); four light yellow and four darker yellow stamens were used. The leaves under the flower are the Cheery Lynn "Tropical Leaves" (B119). I was trying to create a waterlily. The beautiful sentiment is from the new Heartfelt Creations "Heartfelt Expressions PreCut Set" (HCPC 3475). Don't you love the beautiful font used on these new sentiments.
Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the beautiful new Cheery Lynn dies. There are some new window dies that I absolutely love. Joan has a card I designed with one of these window dies, plus a few other cards designed with the "Build A Flower #1" set on her blog.
