Cheery Lilies

I am delighted to introduce another of guest designers!  Diane Hover is a very talented designer as you will soon see!  You can see more of her work on her blog here.  Grab a cup of coffee or a Diet Coke and enjoy her eye candy below!

Well, hello my garden friends!  Diane visiting with you today!  Don't you love flowers?  I know I do and when all these flower dies started popping up in the Classy Cards 'n Such shop, I was super excited!!

Today I am showing you two similar, but very different cards using some of the Cheery Lynn Designs Build A Flower and Embellishment dies. These dies contain numerous petals, bases, and leaves to build an endless garden of flowers.

One of the easiest flowers to make is a lily...goodness, there are so many colors of lilies, it is hard to choose one!!

Both flowers were built using the dies listed below:

The orange flower was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers. The colors used were Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, and Dried Marigold.

Did you know that Classy Cards 'n Such has a wonderful marker club you can join to get all the fab marker colors?  There are also 12 new colors you can pre-order now!!

The pink flowers were colored with the PanPastels Flower Coloring Kit - Susan's Garden.

Both cards have the gorgeous Memory Box Quinn Flourish under the lily and the Spellbinders Classic Edges Two for trim.

The paper used on the pink card is from Kaiser Craft called The Lake House 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad. The paper used on the orange card is Graphic 45 Secret Garden. The one in stock is a bit different, but just as beautiful!!

A few other of my favorite products used are the
Cuttlehug.  This is a "must have" in my opinion to cut the intricate dies. You will be glad you bought it!!
Crafter's Tools by Cheery Lynn Designs are also very useful for the intricate dies.

I hope you enjoyed the lilies and I will be back again soon with more creativeness!!


The great thing about a lily is that they just make you smile. Diane did a wonderful job using the various dies to put the lilies together! 

Click any of the gold links above for more info or to purchase the products Diane used.  The new PanPastels are new in the shop today, so be sure to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Until next time...
