Cheery Lynn Designs New Release!

If you are like me, you have been counting down the minutes until the new Cheery Lynn Designs new release, and the great news is that it's here!  This is a picture of my great-great Aunt, who owned a dress shop - so she was always very fashionable. I used a bunch of the new dies on this layout, so you bettter get your shopping list handy, because you are going to want to add these to it.  The new Build a Flower series is nothing short of spectacular!  This first set was designed to create big, beautiful clematis blooms, but the parts will be able to be mixed with future dies to create many wonderful flowers.  One of the things I love most about these petals, is the fact that they have some embossed distressed patterns to them, which makes shaping them a dream. I also used the Princess Tree as a flower filler instead of a tree.  To make my "buds" purple, I cut to images, one green and one purple.  I cut the buds from the green tree and then simply glued the green over the purple.  It's a really quick and easy way to add details. I made multiple cuts of the Flourish Band and tucked them behind my water distressed paper, along the edges of my base cardstock. The Scottish Thistle Doily shows up so well, thanks to the Angel Wing that is included to cut the shadow background.
