Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 26 – Flowers

Hello there ladies,

I was so excited when I saw this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 26 – Flowers Challenge. 

If I had to pick one passion in my life it is flowers 🙂

Bonnie and Donna have provided us with some lovely inspiration.  I have made this project in the past but when I took it into work to put it on my desk it did not last the morning.  Needless to say, I have to make another one. 

This vase is based on a vase I have in my office and I used my Sure-Cuts-A-Lot software to cut it out.  Of course, no vase is complete without flowers so I used the “Best Flower Dies Ever” Cheery Lynn Design Flower Dies.  I continue to experiment with different combinations of dies and paper to create my flowers.  The dies are so versatile that you can easily mix and match any of them! 

Here is my project:

I apologize in advance for the recipe for this one..

The sentiment is from Hero Arts – Friends are Flowers and is cut out using Cherry Lynn Designs Rectangle – Classic Card Stackers

Flourishes are made using Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish and Fanciful Flourish

The ribbon around the middle of the vase is laced into the Ribbon Eyelet Border Die

The border around the top and bottom of the vase is Tiffany Border

The butterflies are Exotic Butterfly Small and the matching Small Angel Wing

Ok, now for the flower dies:

Sweet Williams

Stacker Flower #5

Stacker Flower #6

Judy’s Bloom

Cuties 1

Cuties 2

Cuties 4

Miniature Rose

Medium Rose

Large Rose

Wow, did I use that many?

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to read this long list.

  Have a great evening.
