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.

Stay tuned tomorrow for some more inspiration!  We are going straight through the weekend so don’t forget to stop by and check us out.

    Great card! love the effect of the distressing on the edges, especially how the core colour shows through to give you a totally different look from regular card stock. Thank you for the chance to win.

  33. Elizabeth P says:

    Distressing is by far one of my favorite techniques, its great for any kind off paper, and then accented with ink, but with Core’dinations, you can skip the ink, because of the beautiful colors inside. Love the Core’dinations line, and love all things Tim Holtz.
