Yummy Recipe Cards

Happy Monday! Hope everyone is having a great day! I have been busy cleaning and washing clothes all day. But I had to take a minute to scan these to show yall. I am currently participating in 2 recipe swaps. I am participating in one on DIY and one on Just Scrappin'. The following are for the Holiday Recipe Swap on the DIY message board. We are doing recipe cards for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I chose to do a few recipe's from each category.

This first recipe is for the Halloween category. This recipe is so yummo!!! It is called "Spider's Nest Dip" and is great for parties! I used the cricut PDDU (Paper Doll Dress Up) cart for the spiders and spiderweb.

This one is for the Christmas Category. My mom makes this Red Velvet Cake and it is soooo good! I have made it once myself and it is so easy! And decadent! I used the Cricut PDDU for the little old lady. It is actually the Mrs. Clause cut. I added a little spoon to her hand and the bow tie from the groom for her hair. I just love this cut. It reminds me of my grandma in the kitchen cooking. I used Home Accents for the flourish, Wedding Solutions for the Red Velvet Cake, and JOTS (Joys of the Season) for the holly. I also ran the cake through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder for added dimension. Then the "Merry Christmas" is a piece of metal confetti.

This next recipe is for a Misc. category. I chose to do Simmering Potpourii. This recipe makes your house smell awesome during the holidays and is so easy to do. I used Home Accents for the pears. I then ran them through the cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirl folder. I also added a purple bow to each.

This recipe is for the Christmas category. I used JOTS for the wreath. I also added some stickles and dew drops to add some interest to it. I also used the Fiskars Threading Water punch and a decorative corner punch.

This one is for the Halloween category. I used PDDU for all the cute little halloween critters on this one. I also used some chalk to shade them some. This is the first time I have tried shading with the PDDU cart and it is fun!!!! I also ran the tomb stone through the cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirl folder for added dimension. I think this one might be my fave.

Oh no, this one might be my fave! LOL. This one is for the Thanksgiving category. I chose to do Sweet Potato Pie. The pilgrims (who are just too darn cute!!! I got the giggles while making these) are PDDU, as is the 'Pumpkin Pie.' The swirl above the pie is from JOTS. Then the leaf on this one is from my good friend Ashley. She cut them with her Pazzles.

This next one is for the Christmas category too. I cut the Santa out with PDDU and ran his beard through the cuttlebug with D'vine swirl. I also addes some stickles to his coat. I used Peachy Keen face stamps for all of these PDDU characters. But I especially like the face on the Santa. It just looks so jolly and def. made me giggle. Hee hee. The reindeer, sleigh, and snowflakes are all from the PDDU cart as well. I also added stickles to the nose of my reindeer.

I appreciate you stopping by to see these. This is the first time I have participated in a recipe swap and I have to say, it is soooo fun!!! I am now gonna work on my recipe cards for Just Scrappin, so hope to have those posted asap. Thanks for looking! Hope everyone has a great week!

Pin It!
