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………………………………….

  1. I just tried to do my own version of this technique. Now I remember why I never use it. My crimper is an old plastic generic version. I can barely feed card stock through it! I would so love a Fiskars one as I really like the look for my card making.

  2. Denise C. says:

    Oh my gosh, I love how your paper looks after using the Crimper!!! Talk about a great pairing of products!

  3. HeidiY says:

    This is a beautiful card! I didn’t think the Crimper can do this. Thanks for all the techniques for the past 10 days!!! I’ll keep these notes + give it a try!!

  4. Tona says:

    I love the looks of the crimping on the core’dinations cardstock! I am learning so much during these technique days. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Sue Stultz says:

    Crimping gives the item you are working with, the card or scrapbook page a deminsion that almost gives you a 3-D effect. I love the card made here and will try to do a card like it….
