Mixing and Matching with Suzanna Lee

One of the great things about Core is that you can mix and match ALL of our lines together SEAMLESSLY!  This first card by Designer Suzanna Lee mixes Core’dinations lines and the David Tutera Celebrate layers to make the CUTEST card! Please, two different sized googley eyes?  How ca-ute is that?!???!?!
Here are some tidbits from Suzanna regarding these projects:
One of the many amazing things about Coredinations is the texture you can create.The embossability of Core made it possible to create a whole beach scene; the waves below from Glitter Silk, the sunny sky from David Tutera layers and the clouds from good ol Snowflake. The Glitter Silk creates a lovely glimmer of sun reflecting off the waves! I prefer to stamp on a solid cardstock and find that the tags are the perfect size for that very purpose.

And next up a black and yellow card…one of my FAVE color combos!!! AND the Darice honeycomb/hexagon embosing folder is too perfect for this theme.
This card is inspired by the bee stamp. Browsing the aisles of the store, this stamp caught my eye and screamed, take me home with you! (Ever have that happen to you?!). Emboss some Core for a subtle hive for her to buzz around and you have an adorable card!

And a layout using some super cool techniques! Paper tearing…inking the Spotted Cardstock..Suzanna really works it here!
One of the tag lines for Core-dinations is Tear it and that’s what I challenged myself to do with this layout. I have a tearing phobia… I like things nice and neat and clean. There is nothing neat about tearing… I get in a quiet panic just at the thought of tearing. Sound familiar? Well, take a deep breath and do as I did, remind yourself that you have a thousand more pieces of paper in your stash and it’s okay of you “mess it up”. Though if you think about it, you can’t really mess it up. Tearing is tearing and it’s supposed to look that way! Right? Another nifty little thing I did with this layout is paint. Actually I used a brayer to roll paint onto the Spotted Jillian dot for a multi-color effect. Amazing what you can do with Core!!!
