Cheery Lynn Dies

Well as promised I am back with a couple of things that I have made with my New Cheery Lyn Dies that I got last week from Mandy at Scrappy-go-Lucky.
The first one is made from the new Dies DL 164 Doily Stacker Circles 1,2,3., and they fit perfectly on the Plain Circle White Easel Cards also from Mandy. They are really quick and easy to use and it takes all the guess work out of the sizes and scoring etc.
They come in packs of 20 with envelopes for $ 9.95 so thats makes it about 50 cents a card with the envelope included. It would cost you more in Cardstock.
I used the medium size circle and its fits perfectly, I then used my Scalloped Nestabillites for the background and then the smaller Die in the pink, then there is a small circle in this set that just enough for the small rose to sit in the middle.
 This is another one that I made using the Medium Die and I managed to cut it out of the patterned paper with the owl on it. I have actually threaded ribbon through the holes of the die and then tied it off into a bow.Added some Kaiser pearls and a liilte bit of lace.
I have got to have more of a play with the little Cuties 1 B149, 2 B150 and 3 B151, I think I have wound them to tight and the petals need spreading out a little bit. But They are still pretty cute all the same.
Now I did pinch this idea from someone else not sure where now but I did change it a little.
I have used the Heart to Heart Doily Dies set of 4 DL106, and the good thing about this set is that the large die is used for the background (dark pink).
I have done this on the back and front and then just cut a strip of cardstock to make the bag and then another piece to make the handle.I should have taken step by step photo's, will do that next time.
These little flowers are the Roses in Large B155, Medium B154 and Minature B152, I have just put them all together with a brad.
This is another new one  Hearts D'Vine B142, and I have just cut out a couple of them and added them to the handle and the bottom of the bag.
I have done a few more projects but I dont want to spoil you with to many.
This is a picture of what the cards look like when you buy them they are already cut and scored and are just easy and economical to use. So head on over to Mandy and see what she has.
Hope you enjoy looking at the cards I have made.
Cheers Shelley
