Helmar Day Two…It’s Magical Don’t You Think?

Like Black Magical?! Yep, that’s  a real phrase ’round here at Core’dinations.

We are here with Helmar this week and couldn’t be more excited! We have gorgeous projects all week long for you.

Make sure you say “hi” from us over on the Helmar Facebook page AND they have some awesome boards over on Pinterest, too!  And…you know how it goes here… comment here on the Core blog all week long for a chance to WIN some FAB Core’dinations goodies all for yourself. Comment every day for more chances to win!!! And, of course…check in over at the Helmar Blog for more inspiration.

Today we have Designer Shaunte Wadley creating for us using one of our favorites, Black Magic Cardstock. Get out that Sand it Set because sanding Black Magic is F-U-N!

Here is a little bit about  this layout from Shaunte: ” I used Black Magic for everything but the journaling and the Flowers. Those are Whitewash (journaling) and Core Essentials (flowers.) I think it is pretty cool how well the colors matched between collections.
The title letters were a fun technique!  I distressed them–the letters were too narrow for pop-dots–I would have had to cut them down a lot,  so the Liquid Scrap Dots worked great! The end result looks like crumpled chipboard because of the dimension the Scrap Dots gave the letters.
I used the 450 Quick Dry adhesive as a base for glitter to stick to, to give a sort-of custom brad look to my side border on the photo.

Brilliant! Enjoy!

    I just bought a Fir tree die. I’m planning on using my core’dinations paper for the trees. After they are embossed I can sand them and get a weathered look.
    Christmas cards designed, now I need to get in and start working.

    WOW WOW WOW

    Shaunte’s layout is STUNNING – LOVE the design, colours, layers, textures, scoring, sanding … ALL OF IT!!!

    YES, it is great how the colours match between collections.

    PS – This week it is great seeing Helmar work so well with the challenges the Core’dinations DT are putting it through. I am a self confessed 450 Quick Dry addict and this week I am getting tempted to try more from the Helmar range :)

    You really ensure it is appear very easy with the presentation but I locate this matter being actually one thing which I feel I’d never understand. It form of feels way too complicated and vast for me. I am taking a look ahead on your next submit, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!
