"Special" Card - Cheery Lynn Designs


This week I have been busy making a variety of cards.  Card making is a creative venture all on its own, with so many wonderful tutorials out there in the ‘cyber world’.  The template I used, I discovered on Splitcoast Stampers and just had to try it out. 

The new release “Flower Stackers” are amazing, with so many uses and ways to create with them.  Combined with the “Classic Window Stackers” allows for endless combinations of flowers to be created.


The flower I created for this particular card is from using a selection of different dies.  Firstly, I used the Stacker Flower #6, lightly turning under the petals using a drinking straw.  The second layer is formed using the Stacker Flower #5, rolling the petals inwards using a skewer.  The third layer is the Sweet Williams die, using the smaller of the two flowers in the set – again, rolling the petals inwards slightly.  The leaves are from the Frangipani with Leaves set, they are actually upside down, but they are soooo real in shape, I could not resist in using them for this flower.  I just adore the Exotic Butterfly Mini and placed one on the card, they are so perfect for so many projects, and are available in a larger size too – the larger butterflies can be found “here”.

Also, to complete the card, I used the beautiful Anastasia Border which looks just like real lace. 

Do not forget to watch the video on the Stacker Flowers, which can be found “Here” (scroll down towards bottom of page).


Now its time to get stuck into some much needed "me time" (to create) before my little darling son pokes his head out from under his 'blankie'....
