Fabulous Find: Cheery Lynn Chrysanthemum Strip

One of the newest manufacturers Sandy has brought into the story is Cheery Lynn. Firstly, isn't their name just oh so cute? Their dies offer so much versatility. They cut easily and precisely in my Big Shot. Perhaps what I liked the most was how I had the option of how I wanted to layer the pieces of the chrysanthemum. If I wanted a fuller flower, it was easy to add another layer. If I wanted a more fragile flower, I simply layered less.

Below are 2 different moods of cards. Below is a fun vibrant birthday party. The royal blue chrysanthemum added a punch of colour and spunk.

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Hemptique (hemp); Cheery Lynn Strip die (chrysanthemum die); Tinkering Ink (pattern paper); Die Versions (border die)

This next card is a sympathy card, for a dear friend in memory of her mother. I wanted the card to represent the happier memories she had of her mother and adorned the card with chrysanthemums. Misting the flowers, after assembly, with 3 different colours allowed me to create dimension in the flower. It looks like the sun is bouncing off of the petals.

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock, Cheery Lynn dies (chrysanthemum flower, chicken wire), bronze leaves (source unknown); Queen and Company (brads); Memento Ink, Tattered Angels (mist)

I hope you will give a try to the Cheery Lynn dies - they are utterly fantastic!
