Who’s ready for a challenge?   Our World Card Making Day 2013 challenge is out of this world!  What do you think about celebrating  our Hard Core Crafters from around the world together today & get crafty at the same time? AND do it ONE challenge?  Any ideas as to how we might do that?  I would keep reading if you wan to win THIS:


Here’s another hint from designer Suzanna Lee?  Hmmm….well I definitely see some Core’dinations…..the world…a plane…some embossing and sanding….


Another hint? This time from designer Tracy Gruber….I see the United States….sanding….


Okay….I guess we can let you know now! :)  Our challenge is to create a card that has to do with the World. Since it is World CardMaking Day, we want to celebrate all the papercrafters from all over the world coming together for this amazing hobby!

So…the challenge? Create a card using Core’dinations cardstock (must be visible) that focuses on the World theme. Use your imagination ….our first few examples take the challenge pretty literally but the rest of our design team created some examples, too. They are so creative and really went with the world/travel theme. And don’t forget to SAND!

LOVING Kate Nolan-Denham’s version of using the whole world!  She used her Silhouette Cameo  and used the negative image of the globe…how cool is that?


AND we have a bonus for you! This card from designer Mary Pat Siehl has a video! CLICK ON THE IMAGE AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL TO VIEW. Her videos are GREAT! She takes you through the process to make this card step by step.


And loving this interpretation from designer Debbie Standard…yep! Hot Air Balloons work as well!

And Designer Vivian Keh has a super cool idea…she used her Sizzix embossing folder that is all about travel. See the plane  and the post card images?  Yep…that works, too !


And how FUN is this card from Designer Jill Lebbin???? FUN STUFF!


And Ava Gavloski stamped her sentiment about sailing….you can sail around the world, right?


      So..what do you need to do?  Let’s recap:   1.) Create a card using Core’dinations Cardstock.   2.) It must follow the theme of the world…traveling…visiting….across the miles…flying…be creative!   3.) Sand and use technique on  your Core card   4.) Link up using Mr Linky by Monday, October 7th at Noon EST.   5.) HAVE FUN!

    FABULOUS cards and EXCITING challenge!!!
    What a wonderful way to celebrate World Card Making Day – I have made lots of crafty friends all over the world through crafting and know that it will be lovely to make some cards so send their way :)
    Thank you for giving us some extra time to get our cards done too … I’m heading off to bed soon and was worried that I would have to set the alarm early {{{YIKES, Daylight Saving starts here tomorrow}}} and break out my Core before breakfast!!!

    THANK YOU for this fabulous challenge!!!

    It pushed me to try my hand at tearing {thank you for the video Mary Pat} and to try creating a sunray/sunbeam design too. … it didn’t quite turn out as I planned but I am thrilled with the end result.
    The bonus is, that even though it is a dimensional balloon, it folds flat for postage, so my “Sending smiles across the miles” card will be flying over to the USA to one of my crafty friends real soon and will hopefully bring a smile to her face.
