And Today’s Technique is AS IS!

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 if you missed any of the previous days, you can check out the videos by CLICKING  HERE.

AND today we have some extra goodies for you to win from….


Queen & Co. has a wonderful selection of embellishments and their colors are designed to Core’dinate specifically with our cardstock!!!

So I mentioned that today’s is to use our Core’dinations Cardstock just as it is. What does that mean exactly? You don’t always have to sand Core’dinations in order to enjoy the great quality. Core’dinations can be your go to cardstock for all your projects.  Today Design Team member Kimber McGray created projects with stamping. Yes, you can stamp on your Core! If you don’t like to stamp on textured cardstock, than just flip it over and use the back.  Notice how Kimber stamped on the backside but then used the textured side (the front) of the Core’dinations for her layered card bases. Beautiful!

Note on this first card that Kimber also drew a frame on the card base…don’t be afraid to write on your Core, too!

Look closely at this card. Kimer embossed on the textured white card base. GORGEOUS!

And another beauty here using some color blocking as the base. No sanding required!

So who is ready for yesterday’s WINNER??????????????????

I am 😉
