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’dinationscardstock. 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 Three: Embossing

Day Four: Debossing

Day Five: Distressing

Day Six: Scoring

Day Seven: Outlining

Day Eight: Label

Day Nine: Antiquing

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!  Make sure you leave a comment here letting us know how much you have been enjoying the 12 Days of Techniques! AND CLICK HERE to check out the video on .

Today we have a special treat from Fiskars!!! AGAIN! Yes, they have been super generous and donated a PAPER CRIMPER for our 10th Day of Techniques Today.  Yes, you guessed it, today’s technique is CORRUGATUNG. We are blowing the dust off these great tools and working some Holiday Magic with them.  Make sure you check out the video here to get some great tips on using your paper crimper.   Again, if you get a chance to give Fiskars a shout out on their Facebook Page for the generosity we would appreciate it!  It might just get you another shot in to win today’s prize!!!! 😉

Today’s inspiration comes from Design Team Member Sarah Hodgkinson. Sarah used her Whitewash Cardstock, ran it through her Crimper,  and cut it so it looks like a landscaped background for her card. Beautiful and easy!!! Thanks Fiskars!  We cannot wait to see what you do with your paper crimper.

So who wants a winner from yesterday? Don’t forget that EVERY DAY we are giving away a Core’dinations paper pack, Sand It Gadget AND a Dust Buddy, too!!!!

Yesterday’s Winner is………………………………….
