I live in the country and like to use torn paper to represent the fields and hills. I’m glad I found your paper because with other paper I would use ink to hide the white core and it never looks right.

Lisa, we are happy you found and us and cannot wait to see what you create with your Core’dinations and Fiskars goodies. No covering up that inner core anymore!!!  Make sure you email us with your information!

Come Back tomorrow for more winners and another BIG give-a-way!!! You won’t want to miss this one. Don’t forget to watch the Embossing Video here leave us a comment and tell us what your FAVORITE line of Core’dinations is to emboss!

    I like the black magic line. Great cards.

  2. Karen says:

    Thanks for the awesome ideas. Love the paper!! It’s so nice to not have to use ink around the edges!

  3. Darlene says:

    Your paper is amazing! I LOVE the cards! Thanks for all the ideas and techniques.

  4. Lori B says:

    Thank you so much for the ideas. I loved watching the emboss video. I’ve seen layouts and cards which have been embossed but never knew how it was done. You made it look so easy…I’m hooked.

  5. Arlene Bonsma says:

    Wow, what a lot of different possibilities, I love the page with both the emboss and deboss on it, what an effect! I would love to use the sugar and spice pack to emboss with a good mix of colours and combinations.

  6. alwayscharlie says:

    I’m enjoying your 12 days of Christmas posts so far. I’m a black magic fan!

  7. I love coordinations! I use some on almost every project! my favorite is the whitewash and also the chocolate ones , in the whitewash I love how the color is so vivid against the white!

  8. Gini Cagle says:

    The chocolate box is one of my favorite collections – I use tons of browns, so I guess that makes me a little partial.

  9. Sandi B says:

    I just heard about the 12 days of Christmas techniques. Very informative and will definitely go back and check out previous days and continue forward with the rest of the days. Thanks for the information.

  10. Mandie W says:

    I love the The Chocolate Box Specialty Collection papers! Brown is one of my favorite colors to scrap with and I love when I can get just a touch of color by sanding!!!!

  11. syeda says:

    I love the white wash collection. I think when you emboss or deboss on white wash cardstock then reveals the beauty of paper even more. Love Cor’dinations cardstock.

  12. Patty B says:

    I love embossing vintage cardstock…I love adding something new!

  13. Heathe F says:

    Beautiful cards. Black magic is my favorite to emboss! Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Jenn K says:

    I am sad to say I have not really ever dry embossed anything. AFter watching that video I can’t wait to try it. The embossing on your unique cardstock is such an awesome look! Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Heather Robertson says:

    wonderful cards – I love the Black Magic line for embossing

  16. Joanna Johnson says:

    I am a huge fan of embossing and think the Core’dination lines are just brilliant. I’m partial to black, like a lot of us, but also think the greens turn out beautifully.

  17. ruth tacoma says:

    I don’t know what it’s called, but my fav paper is the brown with a green core…..I could use that one color combo over and over and over.

  18. wendi r says:

    ohhhh how fun.. I will have to go with black magic being my fave!!!!

  19. Lisa says:

    The video on labeling the paper is great. I would have never thought to do that!

  20. Marie Butler says:

    I don’t have a favorite yet, but can’t wait to try the embossing/sanding technique. The results look great!

  21. RobynC says:

    First let me say that my friend has a Sizzix Texture Boutique and I am ALWAYS borrowing it. I would LOVE to have one of my very own – there would never be a flat piece of paper in my house! My favorite line of Core’dinations paper to emboss is the Black Magic collection (my number one choice would be Hocus Pocus but I love them all). I love to emboss and sand them – so beautiful and so dramatic. Core’dinations paper is GENIUS!

  22. Kerri says:

    the days of techniques are getting better everyday:) wowers a sizzix texture boutique …okay never heard of it but my trusty cuttlebug started to quiver at the thought of a replacement LOL…but be assured with a few cuddles, my trusty bug has learnt to share embossing folders ( guess bribing him with chocolate helped calm the nerves heheheh) the chocolate box range is beyond a top favorite:) good luck everyone!!

  23. Vanessa McPherson says:

    Thank you so much for the tips! I love your lines and black magic is my favorite!!

  24. Deb Long says:

    I have only played with the Black Magic and Whitewash lines for embossing so far, and I love them both!

  25. Jennifer says:

    Love the mebossing folders. What a pretty but simple card.

  29. Kim says:

    Thank you so much for posting the link on ACOT’s message board! I’ll definitely be following. The cards are so pretty. I’ve never tried Core’dinations and I just have to put them on my Wish List of things I NOW NEED!!!

  30. Teresa says:

    I have some Core’dinations cardstock but have never used it. It’s with my other special papers that no one can touch.
