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!

    Gorgeous cards!!

    Well, when I am lazy I love the pre-embossed designs, but I like to do my own embossing on occasion too. In fact I just made a holiday card with a sheet of white wash and embossed stars onto it.

  6. Donna says:

    I really like embossing then sanding – it really makes the paper pop!

  7. Donna says:

    I really like the core’ essentials. Love to emboss and sand with them

  8. carolyn says:

    I love sanding the preembrossed papers and when i get a machine that i can use for emborssing Im going to have fun embrossing my own designs on your papers

  9. cort says:

    Oh i love my little blue purse! it looks soo cute on my scrappy table..and it does amazing things when used in combination with coredinations paper! Someone is going to be very happy to get this!!!

  12. terri says:

    What a fabulous giveaway! I like the whitewash collection.

  13. Kimmie says:

    I love the Black magic collection, because that’s all I’ve ever run across where I live. But the Essentials collection you’ve used on these gorgeous card is fabulous!! I must find some!!

  14. Joann Mitchell says:

    I like all the white core papers, especially when embossing.

  15. marie-anne raeman says:

    I like the core essentials to emboss because the have a light shine on them and it’s great paper to work with

  16. Elizabeth P says:

    I like the chocolate box collection for embossing and sanding. Brown just seems to go with all the shades so well. I’m guessing the bonus prize might be Sizzix embossing folders to go with the Core’dinations paper and the Texture boutique.

    I left love for Sizzix on their FB page, and am posting this giveaway on my blog, where I have proudly posted a Core’dinations badge linked to your site !

  17. Patchi says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite, as I’ve liked all the collections I have. I think it’s a tie between the vintage and the whitewash – but then again I haven’t broken into the black magic I bought recently…

  18. Sue Stultz says:

    I use the embossing in my scrapbook many ways. I make the trees jump off the page, mats for matting pictures, Titles that I use my Cricut for (run the paper through my Texture Boutique before cutting). I also use embossing in my cards. Really dresses them up

  19. Tona says:

    I love all of these cards!
    My favorite line to emboss is Reminisce from the Vintage collection.

  20. CindyM says:

    I like the Core Essentials to emboss with, it gives your cards that extra umph to stand out from the rest!! Carli’s cards are beautiful!!

  21. April W says:

    Definitely the Vintage collection…the colors are FANTASTIC!! 😉

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I am new to CORE`Dinations,I have a 6 hour drive to the nearest scrapbooking store (Hobby Lobby), but I had to drive and get some after your blog hop with Graphic 45. I am excited to say that the White Wash and the Essentials were both among my purchases. I have a few of the Tim Holtz embossing folders, but I haven’t really used them. After seeing the AWESOME inspiration for today I can’t wait to PLAY and CREATE!! THANKS SO MUCH for the ispiration on techniques this week I can’t wait to see what is next!! THANKS, also for the chances to win such FABULOUS products!! HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!! =)

  23. Kathy says:

    Love your embossed cards! I really like the little pearls that you added. Very pretty! I have only used a few Coredinations papers, but my recent favorites are the Core Couture and Gemstones. I love the glitter and shimmer on these papers. They add so much more when embossed! Thanks for sharing!

    Embossing your paper gives an elegant effect I am often looking for when making cards.

  30. Jean Marmo says:

    I do not have any way to emboss other than an old tool. Would love to try this using your terrific papers. I do think I would like to try this on the white core papers. Thank you for a chance to win.


  31. C. G. McConnell says:

  32. I LOVE all of the white core papers! Thank you so much for sharing some yummy goodies!!

  33. Vicki O says:

    I haven’t been able to find your paper yet. I’ve read alot of the comments and looks like this is a great product. I love my sizzix dies that I own. I especially like it for my card classes that I teach to friends and relatives.

  34. Sherry says:

    I love the core papers – just broke my first batch out and it is “way” cool! Love the essentials collection but it’s hard to pick a favorite also!

  35. Joyce says:

    Gorgeous projects!
    And congrats Lisa!

  36. Janet Zeppa says:

    It’s hard to pick just one but I guess I will have to say the whitewash collection.
    Awesome cards Cari!

  37. I think Core essentials work the best for embossing! Thanks!

  38. Micki Butler says:

    I love to emboss the vintage collection but I love all of core’dination papers. Your papers always emboss so nicely.
    I am so loving the videos and posts!

  39. Ying says:

    I need to get some of that Black Magic. Haven’t tried yours yet but now I know, I can request it from the local store. =) Thanks!!!
    It would be awesome if the colors that showed through was gold, even bronze. I do a lot of red with gold accents for Lunar New Years and Asian cards. Even silver or gold peaking through for night out on the town would look really neat whether you start with black or midnight blue cardstock.

  40. Kim T says:

    Beautiful cards, lovely effects. For me my favourite to emboss is the vintage collection, I just love these colours and when embossed it really pops. Thanks for the chance to win.

  47. Lori N. says:

  48. Amy K says:

    Color Me Happy is my favorite! This Happy Holidays card is just beautiful!
