Cheery Lynn Designs & Imaginisce Swap - Day 6

Today is Day 6 of our Blog Swap with Cheery Lynn Designs.
What a great week of inspiration it has been!

There are so many creative ways to use these dies as you can clearly see from the projects our designers have created with them combining them with the Imaginisce products.

Today we have designers Shellye and Ilene sharing their projects.

Christmas Tags
For these, I used the standard shipping tags which can be found at most any office supply store.

For the "Santa" tag I framed him with two of the pretty Lace Corners (B165 Deco E) that I cut from "Christmas Cheer".

For the "tree" tag, I used three of the Lace Corners (B165 Deco E) to create the branches of the tree! I cut a small strip of "Christmas Cheer" paper for the trunk and then machine-stitched the 'branches' onto it. I embellished with punched circles, Glitter Hot Rocks and a hand-cut snowflake!

Supplies: Christmas Cheer patterned papers, Santa from one of the Sticker Stackers, I Rock Tool and Glitter Hot Rocks
Misc: baker's twine and computer generated greetings
Cheery Lynn: B165 Lace Corner Deco E Dies

I love the look of a scalloped cake stand, yet I don't own, I dressed a tiered plate stand by embellishing the inner rims (below where the actual plate sits) with four lengths of the beautiful Francesca Border (B159) cut from "Hello Cupcake" patterned paper.

Using a 2" square punch, I created the triangle banner by folding the squares diagonally. I added a few of the fun "Hello Cupcake" die-cuts to the top with a couple of sticky dots! I'm thinking this would make a great idea for Halloween treats as well...hmmm, look-out "Monster Mash"!

Supplies: Hello Cupcake patterned papers, die cuts and party hat from one of the Sticker Stackers, I Bond Glue Gun
Misc: baker's twine, ribbon, pom poms
Cheery Lynn: B159 Francesca Border Die

Ilene Tell

I really loved paiting up the fun and vibrant Imaginisce collections with the Cheery Lynn dies. I am absolutely a die-cutting fantatic, so this was lots of fun for me. My favorite die from Cheery Lynn was the breathtaking French Pastry Doily have to see this in person - the level of detail is just amazing. I loved being able to make my own doilies out of paper that matched the collections I was working with. And if you notice on the tag and card, I used some of the round Imaginisce embellies - the chipboard stickers, dimensional sticker, etc, from most of the collections have round options, and those fit beutifully into the middle of the doily die.
