Cheery Lynn Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Dear Ones~
Just resting up today from my trip to Lansing last weekend for the Art Festival. A good time was had by all.

Today's offering is for the Cheery Lynn Challenge - using red, white and blue. Easy, peasy. This card was made for our little grandnephew who just turned 6. He's crazy about baseball....can you tell?

 I used the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Baseball stamp set for this. The bat, baseballs and glove are all done with several stamps layered in different ink colors for dimension. I made it a shaker card, with the baseball in the middle inside the shaker. Only thing I wish I would have done differently is put more shaker bits inside. I should have really loaded it up. The glove is popped up on a bobber so it jiggles when you tweek it.

Here are the ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stock
DCSV Stardust Stack Patterned Paper
Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Baseball Stamp Set
Cheery Lynn Designs Burlap Borders Die
Memento Inks in Various Colors
Quick Kutz Nesting Stars Die
ART-C Letters Dies for Name
Glossy Accents
Stash Star Sequins

It's been sunny and warm the past few days, I think summer might be thinking about making an appearance. I'll take it. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments.


  1. I can't believe how real and almost 3D-like that glove and bat are! Your great nephew will really love this baseball themed card. AND then he'll be flicking that bobber and shaking that shaker to smitherines lol So FUN!!!

  2. Fabulous card for a little guy who loves baseball. So many real looking elements, and then you got his attention with a shaker card. He will love this. My grandson would, so I know he will.

  3. He's going to love this! What a great card for a baseball fan. Love the stamps and the red, white and blue.

  6. Oh my...I think I need that set! What an awesome card! My son would love that. I have a whole baseball album full of his pictures growing up, playing baseball. You've brought back a lot of memories for me--thank you!!!

  7. OMGosh! The bat & glove look so real I thought they were pictures. My great-grandson is a huge baseball fan so I just might have to CASE this for his September birthday (he would love the shaker & flipper) Your grandnephew will love it.
