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!

  6. Donna W. says:

    I love to emboss and the coredinations just
    make the embossing stand out so much better than
    on regular paper. The Happy Holidays is so beautiful
    with the embossing and a touch of pearls.

  7. M.Chipman says:

    all of them

  8. karen says:

    I LOVE to emboss the Turquoise Waves collection in the Essentials line. The colors are so beautiful!

  9. Pam Spradlin says:

    I like the way the embossing stands out on the Black Magic. The paper is so much fun to play with.

  10. Dave R says:

    beautiful cards, great prize. Like to emboss, tear and sand the bright colors the most. any line, love them all

  11. Lesley from WI says:

    Congrats Lisa. My favorite line of Core’dinations to emboss is the Gemstone Collection. I love all the colors and they look gorgeous when embossed and just stand out beautifully!!

  12. I have all the lines, and I can not pick a favourite to emboss. They all look great!

    I have a Cougar from Black Cat Cutters (electronic die cutter). I´ve used it to emboss my name on one of the Teal Blues papers. I just wrote my name in Illustrator, made a fill and embossed it in the size I wanted for my LO. It turned out great!

    I do love the pre embossed papers though. I love that they are 12″x12″! I find that I use them even more now that I have sorted them into the correct file folder (whit the other colors that match) LOVE IT!

  13. Knititall says:

    The Black Magic line is definitely my cardstock of choice for embossing.

  14. sandra m. says:

    I think the Black Magic line is fun to emboss, then sand. The black highlights the color underneath and can coordinate with colors in pattern paper too. There are so many fun colors to choose, the combos are endless!

  15. Ann says:

    I love to dry emboss, but honestly haven’t paid that much attention to what cardstock I was using, but after seeing the video and these cards, I think I want to be mindful – does the embossing ever stand out nicely when Coredinations is used! Thanks!

  16. I LOVE all the lines you carry, but at the moment my favorite is the Stacy Jillian line which I got for my birthday. I love the colors and how vibrant it is.

  17. tonny says:

    I only use coredinations !Love them all !What a great giveawys !

  18. Sandra ltb says:

    very pretty!
    Love using Core’dinations with embossing folders!

  19. cassie t says:

    Wow, those are beautiful cards! The Sizzix is so cool!!

  20. Doris Widder says:

    I love all the core’dinations lines! I do not have an embossing machine right now, but I think I’d really like the black magic embossed and sanded. 😀

  21. I’d have to say the whitewash collection is what I use most when embossing – love the sublety of the effect when embossed and lightly sanded.

  22. kimberlee says:

    Chocolate Box is my fave, especially in key lime. I just love brown with just about any color! I also like to use my own embossing folders. But if I ever were to buy a specialty co-brand pack, I’d want Jenni Bowlin’s Black and Red.

  23. Erika Taylor says:

    I love embossing Coredinations goodness. You really get the most beautiful textures.

  24. Lisa P says:

    I love Coordinations paper. On my wish list right now is the Stacey Jillian line. I love the look of the paper. For embossing I love using the Black Magic.

  25. Nikki Brown says:

    I have a small addiction to your paper. . . .I love it! It adds to any project that you use it with!

    Black Magic was my first and is still my favorite for embossing. With some sanding thrown in too!

  33. tammy k says:

    The vintage paper looks so awesome embossed!

  34. Heather Yarrow says:

    I like all the lines but if I had to pick it would probably be Nostalgia

  35. Kisha says:

    I love the entire coredinations line, I have it all! I especially like aging my paper’s. I’m vintage at heart, but I also like tearing my papers to fit my style of aged/vintage/grundge look.

  36. Jessie G. says:

    I love all Core’dinations paper! It is my favorite to use! I really like the sanding technique!

I’m a visual person and seeing beautiful art like what you’ve posted (I love Cari Locken) just makes me itch to jump into all the paper packs I have at home. I wasn’t sure how to use the Heritage line I got but now I just want to dry emboss like mad! Thanks again!

  41. Cherrie says:

    I love all your papers- but I think Black Magic is my favorite for embossing – one of my favorite techniques for Coordinations papers!!

  42. Glynis says:

    I love the subtle effects achieved when embossing the Core Essentials papers. A little sanding reveals that soft lighter shade giving the perfect highlight to my project!

    Ok – those videos are GREAT! Can’t wait to try out the outline and scoring techniques! Thanks for sharing!!!!
    So far my fave to work with has been the Black Magic collections – but I have a pack of ColorCore that I am looking forward to breaking into for some vintage family photos.

  45. Michelle M. says:

    I just recently started using Core’dinations paper and love it! It is so versatile! Thank you for all the helpful tips with all the videos, looking forward to trying some new techniques!
