Makin Waves With Cheery Lynn and Imaginisce

Imaginisce and Cheery Lynn Designs are teaming up this week to bring you lots of crafting inspiration. We will be giving a $20 gift certificate to a randomly drawn name from the comments left on our kickoff Sunday post. Be sure to visit the Imaginisce blog for more inspiration and a chance to win product from Imaginisce. Our winner will be announced on Sunday, Aug 12th.
Our Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn designs Challenge blog is SHAPED CARDS
Our team was sent a box of goodies to play with the MAKIN WAVES collection
I used the following Cheery Lynn Designs dies:
French Flair - Classic LG Stackers Nesting Dies
Scalloped Circle
 Iris Leaves
Doily Stacker Circles 1, 2, 3
My first project is a container to put my cards in~ this is an altered dog biscuit box.
 Here is one side of the box, with some  fun dies to decorate this box.
 Here is the top
 Here is the other side.Don't you love these surfers?
 I decided I needed to make a few quick cards sort of a note card set, who can't use a few cards on hand to write notes in. Look at these fun colors and adorable characters.
 I even made a decorated envelope to coordinate with the cards. We got to use some Imaginisce clear stamps that were perfect to stamp on the fishes.
 I decided to make a scalloped circle Kraft card base and then layer some of the fun  designer pieces using  the doily circle and smaller scalloped shapes.
 My favorite shape and die to use for card bases is this French Flair. I decided to make a quick clean and simple design with layering the  fun paper and added a dimensional sticker.
 On the inside I once again  layered the papers and added a quick sticker sentiment.
Some fun matching ribbon and a canvas sticker on the envelope.


All of us at Cheery Lynn Designs are  so thrilled that we got to join Imaginisce with  our joint venture this week. Hope you join us each day to see all the wonderful projects here on the Design blog, on the challenge blog and the Imaginisce Blog.
