Damask Decor Showcase

Hello, and welcome to this week's cartridge showcase, Damask Decor. And what a great cartridge it is.  Along with the regular cuts, there are two different layer cuts,  silhouette cuts, tag cuts and a card and envelope cut.  

And now for the projets I have made.

This card was such a simple one to make.  I used the card cut for the base of the card and then the card overlay cut.  I then added a strip of  brown to the card and topped it with a pink ribbon.  And then to complete the card I added a bow and gems.  How easy wss that!!  

I had this wonderful trim that I had been eager to use and when I saw these papers of the same colors I knew I had a project ready to be made.  I began with a white card base topped with a turquoise damask printed mat.  I then added the green and purple matstopped with the tri-colored trim.  The pretty damask design was added and adorned with some little gems.  The little bird was cut from the Give A Hoot cartridge.  And the sentiment is from a K Andrew stampset.  And then I finished the card with a pretty crinckle ribbon bow.   This card has always been one of my favorites because it is so unusual.   

This little damask shaped card was cut made by welding two shapes together with my Gypsy.  The little heart is a favorite shape of mine and one I have used often.  This card was embellished with an eposy sticker that says Live, Laugh, Love, some little pink gems and three tiny pink roses.

This little teapot card was so easy to make using the card cuts on the cartridge.  A small blue bow was added.  I just love this teapot cut.  

I have also used Damask Decor to make a couple of banners.  

This first banner is has a shabby chic look to it with the pretty pale colors.  It says "Bliss" and hangs from an antique French armoie in a guest bedroom.  It is embellished with pretty roses, silk ribbons and sweet gems.  

I made this Christmas banner to use on a bulletin board in my classroom.  The banner base shapes began with the Damask Decor cartridge.  I really like these shapes to create a banner.  The ginerbread and candy shapes were cut from various Christmas cartridges.  The banner hangs from a sheer red ribbon.

This shaped card was made with the pumpkin from Damask Decor.  I added several eposy fall leaves, a tri-colored crinkle ribbon bow and a sentiment stamp.  

Here is another card made with the pumpkin cut.  It is a shaker card.  And oh what a fun card it is.
