Today is ALL about David Tutera Celebrate and DesignerJennifer Edwardson:
With Valentine’s Day almost here I have been using LOTS of red and pink and white and kraft Core’dinations cardstock !!!
 
I started with an A7 (5 x 7″) kraft cardstock card base and added a piece of Bronzed Glitter Silk cardstock and adhered it towards the right edge. 

 

I love love love my embossing folders and have been waiting to use these heart themed ones for Valentine’s Day !!  I used a piece of Barn Door from the Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection and ran it through my embossing machine and lightly sanded of the top to really have the pattern stand out …… 
 
For the large heart I used a piece of Antique Vanity from the Whitewash Collection and put it through my eBosser.  I sanded off the top to show the pink color and then used my precision scissors to cut around the detailed edge of the heart.  I raised it using 3D foam off to the right edge of the base and added a smaller red heart on top as well !!

 

 

I wanted to add a bit of ribbon to this card and chose this shear white American Crafts which worked perfectly with the whitewash cardstock ….. some alpha stickers to create a sentiment and this card is ready to give on the big day :) )

 

 
Supplies:
  • A7 Kraft cardstock card base from the David Tutera Celebrate collection
  • Glitter Silk Cardstock – bronzed
  • Whitewash Cardstock – Antique Vanity
  • Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection – Barn Door
  • Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
  • American Crafts ribbon, misc. alphas

 

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
….. i LOVE these Step 2 overlays. They are such an easy way to add so much dimension and creativity to your card ….
I started with a kraft A2 card base and adhered this pre-embossed layer with a circle that was the perfect place to add this sweet Step 3 chip shape for my ‘love’ sentiment !!

 

 

I adhered a few Step 3 tiny flowers using 3D foam and added an adhesive backed pearl to the center of each to finish it off – ‘love’ it !!!
 
For my 2nd card I started with a burgundy A2 card base and ran it through my eBosser using a large embossing folder to add a little dimension.  

 

I added a couple of die cut butterflies and a chip shape sentiment to finish off this simple yet sweet card that can be used for almost any occasion :) )

Happy almost Valentine’s Day !!!  Today I have some super cute and easy treat containers to share with you …… 
 
Like most girls, I like a little sparkle in my life and the Core’dinations Core Couture Glitter cardstock is PERFECT as it has just the right amount of shimmer and it DOESNT RUB OFF !!  
 
For my Treat bag I used this fun glitter cardstock and for the little box I used my fave spotted jillian dot (love this cardstock :) )

 

Both of these are Silhouette cut files.  Core’dinations cardstock works like a dream with this digital cutting system.  Quick and easy cuts that were ready to fold into shape and get embellished !!

 

 

I gently sanded the dotted cardstock BEFORE i ran it through the Silhouette.  This makes it easier so that you don’t tear the smaller notches and tabs that come with a box like this.
 
I used the negative heart shapes from the larger glitter bag to help embellish the white cardstock tag and then added a sentiment sticker to finish it off.

 

 
I just love this little bag …. so perfect for chocolate treats, cookies or gift cards too !!  I added another Core’dinations tag that I embellished with a scalloped shape punch using red Core Essentials cardstock and added a heart shaped sticker and tied it on using white sheer ribbon ….. such a fun bag for any occasion !!!

 

Supplies:
 
  • Core Couture Glitter Cardstock – Stiletto
  • Spotted Jillian Dot Cardstock – Roasted Pepper
  • Canvas Textures Tags – White Medium
  • Core Essentials – Poinsettia
  • David Tutera Celebrate – Step 3 Sentiment Stickers
  • Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
  • American Crafts white sheer ribbon
