Designing with Ava Gavloski

Happy Monday Morning!
We are up today with some MORE exciting news….it keeps getting better around here, don’t you think?

For all of our Hard Core Crafters…check those inboxes! We have our BRAND NEW Hard Core Crafter newsletter filled with a FREE project download and a Core Tip of the month. Cool huh? We have some really great things lined up for this in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned. In the mean time..head to your inbox, grab your coffee and ENJOY!

Now we  more inspiration for you from Designer Ava Gavloski.

Creating with the Core’dinations Pastel collection is so inviting for a delicate project like a new baby card.  The texture of the cardstock with the soft color tones is perfect for any baby shower party decor or baby card. Going to a baby shower before the baby is born, creates the opportunity to design with any color combination outside of the traditional pink or blue.  Here is a card I designed with cardstock from the Pastel collection.  The texture is amazing after embossing and sanding to reveal the core color of the cardstock.

 I like to  emboss  and sand  my cardstock before  I trace and trim out the paper piecing pattern as this allows for a greater showcasing of the inner colored core.   I just love this inner jewel toned colored core from the Whitewash Core’dinations Collection.  I embossed small bits of Core’dinations cardstock and cut out the heart pattern to make the charms.  To make the heart charms, I embossed small bits of Core’dinations cardstock, inked and trimmed.
                     
My tip for you today is when you can’t find the right color of twine within your stash, just color another complementary piece of twine with some ClearSnap Pigment Ink.
