Welcome to our First Ever 12 Days of Techniques. We are excited to share with you some of our favorite techniques using our unique color core cardstock. Each day a Design Team member is going to share a project featuring a technique with Core’dinations cardstock. We have TWELVE unique and amazing days lined up for you leading right into Christmas Eve Day.

In case you are just joining us today here is what we covered so far:

Day One: Sanding

Day Two: Tearing

Day Three: Embossing

Day Four: Debossing

Each day we will be giving away a great selection of Core’dinations ! Each prize will also receive a Dust Buddy and our NEW Sand It Gadget! And today we have one of our favorite sponsors and they have a prize for you in addition to the Core’dinations prize pack!

Todays Winner will also receive this an edge distressor from none other than Mr. Tim Holtz! PLEASE make sure you head over to Tim’s Facebook Page and tell him how much you appreciate his support of the 12 Days of Techniques!  You may be seeing more of him in the next few days….just sayin’ 😉     I don’t know about you but I looooove my Tonic Tools. I would recommend the non-stick scissors too 😉 . BUT first you need to watch the Distressing Video here leave us a comment!

Today Paula Gilarde is sharing a card she  created with loads of distressing.   Paula used FOUR, yes, FOUR different Core’dinations Lines! Here they are in order from the cardbase: Black Magic (sanded to show the red core), Core Essentials (Notice the Sizzix by Tim Holtz brick embossing folder????) Jenni Bowlin Vintage Core Impressions and Jenni Bowlin Whitewash Core Impressions (Both from the brown and cream line). Paula added some great details to this card including an SRM Sticker.

I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.

LaRayne….PELASE make sure you contact us through the contact button because I cannot access your contact information via your comment or send us a message on our Facebook page.

    I love Tim Holtz’s work. I have many of his products
    but not his distresser. Don’t know why I don’t have that.
    I had a question and nobody could answer it and I said what
    the heck and e-mailed Tim Holtz. It was his product -he
    returned my e-mail in 5 minutes. We e-mailed a few more times
    about his product. He impressed me that he would take the
    time. I love this card and the different styles used.

  32. Cassie T says:

    I love the effect of showing embossing & debossing together on a scrapbook page. I’m trying it TODAY!

  33. I love my Cuttlebug! I use it just about every day! I post a Sunday challenge every week at PaperCraftPlanet Cuttlebug-ers. We make a project every week, sometimes the specifics are to use the ‘bug’ sometimes there is another specific but then you are still required to use your ‘bug’ somehow in your creation.
    I’ve embossed and debossed and the technique has made for some beautiful cards! Merry Christmas

  34. Cherrie says:

  38. Teri/Scraptag says:

    I’ve always been a bit nervous to get out my embossing folders and use them, but now that I know the Co’ordinations blog is around with all these great ideas and techniques, I’ll have to give it a try more often! Thanks for pairing up with the best of the best in scrapbooking!

  39. tammy k says:

    That card is gorgeous! signed, one of the many scrappers with a (not so secret) crush on Tim!

  40. Tina M says:

    I love Tim Holts tools, this one would be very handy. This creation is beautiful, love the layering! Thank you for the opportunity.

  41. Donna says:

    Great technique today…I distress everything, I think it makes my work look more interesting 🙂

  42. syeda says:

    love the card.

  43. I absolutely love the card. I also love to distress the edges to give it that rough look, especially on the men cards I make.

  44. Susan says:

    Love the Tim Holtz! And I have fallen in love with your paper; i like making things look worn so all the tools would be perfect!! Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  45. Knititall says:

    I’m learning so much here with these posts and the videos, I’m loving it. That card is really nice!

  46. Sue Stultz says:

    This will be a new experience for me. I like the way the card looks and know how much it will dress up my scrapbook pages. Distressing with ink has been how I have done before so this will change the look. With the corestock it will really look neat.

  47. Liz Hagage says:

    Tim Holtz is awesome!!! love to distress

  48. Patchi says:

    Edge distressing is my favorite technique right now! I love to distress patterned paper and cardstock when I’m making cards to give it more dimension — and Paula’s card is just beautiful!

  49. Gayle says:

    Great example of distressing
