Another Damask decor card

I am so grateful that Provocrafts Craft Room as allowed me in on the Beta and let me play with their program.  I think they are on to a wonderful way to use the Imagine and the Expressions that the cartridge work the way they were promised at the Launches!!!!  Here is the second card I made using the Damask decor cartridge and the artwork from Yummy imagine cartridge.  I was able to size and fill my images to go together in the craft room which sure made picking some papers out easy!!!  The card was done in a A2 size and I added embelishments from my stash that most of us at some time or another have picked up for other projects.  M's has gotten alot of prima like flowers thru their Reflection line that I used and matched my paper choice perfectly.  The bow is made from a goodie Joy Sike sent me ... Love seam binding on cards. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look....

Delight in the Little Things…

I know that it has been quite some time since I posted anything…..I have had my plate full… My mom went in the hospital for three weeks and returned home with a little more care than I anticipated.  With the cajoling of Joy Sikes I was able to make this card today.

Even though I haven’t been scrapping very much I have found the time to get a few new carts for myself.  Damask d├ęcor was used on so many pretty cards I had to have it and used it to make my card.  And imagine my surprise when I was able to get into the Cricut Craft Room and actually use it!!! I cut the card base and pumpkin out with it of course I had to run them through some embossing folders to give them some texture.  Now the little crow I cut using my imagine and the imagine more cartridge.  He is many layers cut at 3.3 and pop dotted and inked.  And yes I bought myself some white seam binding and inked it myself using Andirondak inks to match the color of my cards… a button and some pearls from my stash.
The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael’s.  I love the fonts on this series!!!  The papers are some I have had forever and from some of my scraps from other projects but seemed to work with the card. 
Hopefully I will be able to do more in the coming days because I am so much more relaxed and happy when I am working in my little room. Thankyou for stopping by and hey let me know you were here!!!!
