Discovering Autumn Color Palettes

We have more fabulous Fall Inspiration for you today! Ah..this time of year is just so amazing and we hope we can inspire you to get out that Core’dinations Cardstock and work some magic! I love how our team is constantly experimenting with different things. I never would have used white/opaque ink on Tim Holtz Kraft Core like Vivian did here today.


Hello, friends!  Vivian Keh here today with a pair of cards celebrating the arrival of autumn and its warm patchwork of colors.  I used our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Collection to create these card projects.  The first is simply paper punched and arranged in an ombre.  The second has a nice amount of decorative stamping and fussy cut blossoms that have been sanded to reveal the comforting kraft color.



Layer those punches!

And some gorgeous ribbon always makes a card!

    Can I ask a question please?

    I don’t get to see many handmade cards in “real life”, apart from the ones I make myself and was wondering if you share what size these cards are?

    Thank you :)

  3. Your cards are just gorgeous Vivian! Tracy I’m not sure what size Vivian’s cards are but mine are usually around 3 3/4 X 4 1/2 or reversed if I am going for a wider card.

    HI Tracy,
    Most of my cards are standard A2, which means they measure 5 1/2 in x 4 1/4 in. When they are flat, they fit easily into standard card envelopes, but those with dimension, I will often place atop goodies in a package, or slip into a gift bag. Thank YOU, Tracy, for being such a great Hard Core fan and supporter.

    Thank you Debbie and Vivian!!!
    It makes it so much better for me to put them into perspective :)
    My cards must be real clunkers at 5×7, 6×6 and 6×8!!! Luckily most are hand delivered and when I do post them, they are charged by weight rather than dimension here in Australia.
    Thank you for sharing your Core-riffic inspiration – you are my first stop in cyberland, each and every day of the week :)
