Cricut Damak Decor my new go to cartridge!

Hello all--coming to you from San Fran today.  First off I would like let my early readers know there was a connection issue at the hotel and that is why I was unable to get you your morning reading!
So during the E2 launch which of course I watched and got little sleep--I ordered a couple of cartridges and Damask Decor was one of them.  I have to admit I was not 100% sold on this one but when I got it home and opened the box, it quickly moved to the top of my most used list.

The tag and card feature are great.  This is damask 4 card and tag cut at 5"
You are going to love using this cartridge for those last minute gift and cards--in less than 5 minutes I had both of these done!!!!!! Talk about easy!

Here is the tag--I used some K and Company paper and a sheet of solid card stock and a bit of grey ribbon for the tie--it took me more time to apply the Scotch Quick Dry glue then it did to cut it out!

And the card--how simple--there is about a 2" space that I covered with a bit of card stock and the same grey ribbon I used in the tag.  You could also stamp, emboss, cut another sentiment and put it in this space.  There is also an envelope feature on the cartridge--think about the simple yet beautiful gifts of note cards you can make with this cartridge.  I am going to start my Christmas Crafts now!
Come back on Friday for the Pink By Design Team Friday--I have a simple card for the troops and a give away (that I forgot to do a week ago)!
Make it a great one-

Cup of Joe? using Pink By Design Stamps and blog candy winner

Good Monday Morning!  Let's get started with a cup of coffee!  This fun card was made with the Pink By Design Perk Up Stamp Set.  There is also a full background stamp and a full sentiment set all available on Sarah's website (to shop click here)
The Coffee cut was done with the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge and the colors for this card were taken from my fav place to get a cup-Starbucks!
I stamped the cup and in deep green and the lid in brown, than added the coffee in white craft ink!
Here is a close up!  I also pop dotted the lids on each to give a bit of a 3D effect

I pulled out the handy white signo pen for a little doodling
Here is the back of the card--I added a couple of the cups and a fun journal block for a great note.  This notebook background stamp is also one from the most recent Pink By Design release---I used my crop-a-dile hole punch and my snips to make it look like it was torn out of a notebook!
Here is the envelope--love how this finishes it off.  What a great card for a thank you or birthday of a coffee lover.

OK---sorry for the delay in the announcement of the blog candy winner--
