Cheery Lynn Blog Hop!!!!



Today I am participating in a blog hop for Joan's Gardens to introduce to you to a new series of Flower dies from Cheery Lynn called "Build A Flower #1". These dies are Cheery Lynn exclusive flower building dies that Selma helped design; they include flower petals, flower bases, leaves, and different types of stamens. Cheery Lynn will be releasing more "Build A Flower" sets in the future to build a wide variety of flowers. All Cheery Lynn dies can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

I cut out the stamen and added color and then dampened them just a little and then I used an embossing tool to burnish the petals and curl them up.  Next I curled them around the end of a paint brush and squeezed each one to give them a little scrunch look.  To me they look like blooms that are just opening up and getting ready to strut their stuff. I set my flowers and leaves against a doily die from Cheery Lynn called DL184 Sophia's Heart.  This die can be cut in different  places and can make many usable parts. I have had so much fun playing with these dies and you can bet you will be seeing more flowers in the days to come.  I plan to use this Build A Flower #1 set a lot.  My mind is racing with all the possibilities!

I am very happy to join five other very talented ladies who are participating in this blog hop. Cheery Lynn Designs is the sponsor and has donated a fantastic prize package with a value of $100. All the guest designers were sent a set of the "Build A Flower #1" dies and we have posted cards today showing different flowers we created using these dies. We hope to give you a lot of inspiration to "build" your own flowers.


Would you like to win that $100 gift package from Cheery Lynn? All you have to do is be a subscriber to both Joan and Selma’s blogs and visit each blog in this hop, including Joan and Selma's blogs, and leave a comment. A winner will be selected to win the $100 prize package from comments left on one of the blogs - it will be a random selection done on May 24, 2012.  The guest designers are:

  Priss Steelman http://prissprojects.blogspot.com/
