No I promised some Halloween goodies so here we go! First up Designer Vivian Keh with a cool card with some awesome Chalkboard technique!

Hello, Core fans!  Vivian Keh here to tell you I have been getting so much use out of my 6 x 6 pack of Black Magic!  Today I have a Halloween themed project that uses the Black Magic with lovely orange and green core, revealed with a nice dose of sanding.  In addition, there is a lot of stamping and fun embellishing with Liquid Pearls.

AND it wouldn’t be Halloween without MORE Black Magic cardstock, right!???!??!? NExt up a card from Designer Clare Buswell and a little bit about how she created it:

Make card from cardstock. Emboss Black Magic cardstock, sand using Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Ink edges using Milled Lavender Distress Ink, adhere to card. Add patterned paper (Authentique Thrilling Collection) panel, ink edges and round bottom corners. Add ribbon, bow and twine. Adhere Authentique Thrilling Collection stickers to cardstock, ink edges and fussy cut, attach to card using foam pads. Adhere flower, twine and bottle, to finish.

And let’s switch it up a bit with a layout from Designer Mary Pat Siehl:
I love playing around with Core’dinations cardstock.  First, I took my Black Magic cardstock and made a border by scoring my edges and lightly sanding it.  I then lightly sanded the black cardstock to give it a distressed look.  Then, I misted the cardstock with some white paint.  Next I took my Core Essentials orange cardstock and sanded it.  I then cut a large spider web using my Silhouette.  Next I cut a spider and attached him to the spider web.  I love how the Core cuts in my Silhouette!!! Finally I added my photo.  I love how the Core is the center of attention!

    CONGRATULATIONS Diane!!!

    We don’t really “do” Halloween here in Australia but I love it more and more each year because I have family and friends in the US who LOVE IT :) So, now I’m busily making some cards to BOO them, running out of time I know … really should be creating instead of blogging but I’m addicted to both :)

    BOO-tiful work ladies – THANK YOU for the inspiration!!!
    Vivian – love your white stamping and pearls on the Core layers!!!
    Clare – your black, purple and orange are delicious, love your banner and ribbon, and your pretty flower too!!!
    Mary Pat – LOVE your distressed and misted Black Magic, it makes for a gorgeous background for your pretty purple and orange elements!!!
