Cookie Card Challenge - Yummy Popsicles!

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne and I are doing our Cookie Card challenge. Which means I get to snag one of her designs and create a card off of it, w/ permission. :) It has been SO hot here in Utah and when I saw her Popsicle cookies I just had to make them on a card. I didn't put a sentiment on it so it can be used for a Thank You, Just Because, Hi, and a Birthday card. Lately when I have been making cards for a non specific reason I don't put a sentiment on it so I can use it in different ways.  Here are the cards that Georganne made:

You can see her post on these cookies HERE.

Here is my card on it:

I added Glossy Accents to the Popsicles to make them look wet.

Be sure to head on over to LilaLoa, Georganne's blog, to see what she made of mine.  Be sure to hang there for a while and read her posts and look at her cookies.  Her posts are so funny and interesting and her cookies are just amazing!

Cookie Card Challenge - Happy Birthday Dark One

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne and I are doing our cookie card challenge. I make one of her cards into a cookie and she makes one of my cards into a cookie. I was in the mood to make a boys card and I'm a sucker for Star Wars and Georganne made the cutest Star Wars cookies. Check them out HERE.  I chose to do Darth Vader.  Here is the cookie she made.  A LEGO Darth Vader!

Here is the card that I made.  Sorry the pics are TERRIBLE.  I couldn't find my camera so had to use my phone and it has been cloudy all week.  :-/ 

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you go to Georganne's blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made of mine!  :)

Happy Mothers Day or Any Occasion Card

Hi Crafters! Today Glora and I are having our cut challenge. I needed to make a Mother's Day card so I chose this very pretty tulip cut by Bird. You can download this cut HERE. All her SVG files are free! There are some amazing cuts on her website, Bird's Cards.

I flooded the cut with Pretty Papers Pretty Ribbon Spring Fling paper collection. You can see the papers HERE.  So pretty!  I love the paper designs.  Totally worth the moola!  I cut out the tulip twice.  One for the back and the 2nd one I attached on the edges and stuck tissue paper between the two to make it more 3D and rounded.  I love the way it turned out.  Unfortunately it doesn't really show the roundness/3D-ness in the pics.  :)

Sorry the pics are dark.  I had to use my cell.

Be sure to stop by Glora's website, Glora's Crafts, to see what she made with this cut.  She is extremely talented and creates her projects with a lot of detail.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Guest Designer - SPRING!

Hi Crafters! I'm so excited for today! I'm a Guest Designer for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. FUN!!!   I couldn't resist and made 2 Spring projects for my post.  I also didn't add any sentiment to my projects so I can use them for Birthdays, Thank Yous, Get Wells, or Just Because occasions.

The first project I made is this wonderful Spring Tree. I bought this tree, actually called Autumn Tree, you can find the file HERE.  I fell in LOVE with this tree.  I instantly purchased it when I saw it.  I had no clue how it layers but thought it would be fun.  I also LOVE digital designer paper.  PPPR has a fabulous Spring Designer Paper line called Spring Fling, you can find the designer paper HERE.  Combine the two and you get this Wonderful Spring tree!

So for layering, it layers SOOOO easily.  Each layer seriously just lays on top of one another.  Here is a side view so you can see the depth and layers of this tree:

Another side view:

For my second project I used the same Spring Fling Digital Designer paper and I also used this adorable female Robot from the Robot Group, you can find the file HERE.  The cloud paper in the background is also from the Spring Fling Designer paper.  It is so versatile.  It's a definite must have in my opinion.  Here is my project:

I hand cut the green cardstock for my "grass/hill" then used a Versamarker to outline and make the dots on it.  

In the middle of the dress was originally a heart but since I wanted a more Spring design I changed it out w/ a freebie Silhouette flower. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I want to give a Special THANK YOU to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon for allowing me to be a guest designer on their blog.  I had so much fun.  THANKS!!!  Be sure to go to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Blog to see other projects and make sure you go to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Store to check out their amazing cuts & designer papers.  :)

Green Apple Thank You!

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne w/ LilaLoa and I are doing our cookie card challenge. It's when I'm lucky enough to be given permission to "steal", I mean be inspired by one of her cookie creations.  The cookies I chose to be inspired by are these classy apple green damask apple cookies.  You can see her blog post on these cookies HERE

Seriously how elegant are those?  I love them!  And that apple green is just perfect.  Here is my card inspiration from them.

The color looks more apple green in person.  I swear.  lol  :)  The design on the apple came from Digital Scrapbook.  You can find this design HERE.  Basically choose your color, choose your design, save it to your desktop then drag it into your Silhouette cut and it fills the cut w/ the design.  You can enlarge the design, make it smaller, pan it, etc. in the advanced settings.  FREE Designer Paper!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to Georganne's blog to see what she made of mine.  :)
