Happy Fall, Pumpkin! - Cookie Card Challenge

Happy Fall Crafters & Bakers! Today is the cookie card challenge. It's the day that helps me craft each month. I've been in a bit of a crafting lull. I have done some cards but haven't posted them on my blog yet. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Anyway...

If you aren't familiar with this challenge I choose one of my cousins cookies, LilaLoa, to make a card off of and she chooses one of my paper craft projects to make a cookie. The following are the cookies I'm making my card off of. I just love the wavy lines, colors, and spaces in between everything. It's a classy looking pumpkin.  You can find more about her post HERE.

Here is the card that I made based on those cute pumpkins.  It's a simple card but it's perfect for a friend, neighbor, etc type of card.  I used a banner cut to slice the pumpkin in two so it would have the curve like her pumpkin cookies.

Be sure to stop by my cousins blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made!

Daisies in a Jar - Cookie Card Challenge

Hi Crafters and Bakers!  Today is the Cookie Card Challenge!  My favorite crafting day of the month. I love it because it helps me to craft each month. :)  I saw some awesome Summer cookies that LilaLoa made and fell in love w/ the daisies in a mason jar cookie.  So cute!  I thought they would be perfect for a thank you, friend, thinking of you type of card.

Here is my interpretation of that cookie.  It was pretty simple but I love the simplicity of them because they are the perfect for the whatever occasion card.

My mom loved the card so much that she asked if I could make 3 more cards in different colors for the ladies she works with.  

Here are the summer cookies that LilaLoa made and you can see her post HERE.

Aren't those fun?  Make sure you head on over to Georganne's website, LilaLoa, to check out what cookies she made based off of one my card designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Daffodil Thank You Card - Cookie Challenge!

Hello Crafters & Bakers! Today LilaLoa and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. I chose the following Daffodil cookies to make a paper project off of.  They are so pretty and I just love the dimension to them.  Isn't she just amazing???  You can see her post about these cookies HERE.

I found this really pretty Daffodil in my Cricut Library.  It was one flat flower w/ a shadow behind it so I cut out the main image in two different colors and paper pieced them together for my flower image.  I love how this turned out.

My Cricut also wrote out the Thank You for my message.  I love this pen option with the new Cricut Explore machine.  I hardly use my message stamps anymore because I have this feature.

I also bought a new Anna Griffith Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.  I usually tend for more simple designs but I wanted to try this one out and I just loved it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to drop by LilaLoa's blog to see what cookies she made off of one of my card designs!  :)

Eagle Scout Card

I can't remember if I shared this one yet or not. I couldn't find it so I'm guessing not. If I did, here it is again. :) I found the image by searching Eagle Scout Cartoon. I used the print and cut feature on my silhouette. For the background paper I searched for an image of boy scout patches.   It was originally a darker image but I faded the paper.  It turned out a lot better than I thought.  It's simple but works perfectly.

Don't you just love this Eagle?  I love his smile.  :)

Simple Grad Card

Hi Crafters! Today I wanted to share a simple graduation card I made for my sister to give her niece-in-law. What I tend to do is to use the schools colors and the mascot if I can. It makes it more personable.  So the colors were a deep purple, black & white.  I added the silver for a little more pizazz.  The mascot is a mountain lion.  I found the image I used just by Googling 'Mountain Lion Silhouette'.  I meant to emboss the purple paper for extra detail but forgot.  Now I feel like something is missing from it.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
