Hello Core’dinations Fans! Kate here today. Not sure if you have noticed, but my style is pretty simple and colorful. Just one of the things I love about Core’dinations Cardstock is the color core. I love to use simple techniques to showcase the color core making my layouts so very colorful.
For this layout I had initially chosen a neutral pallete, but knew it was missing a pop of color. I started by pulling in color through alternating layers of cardstock which I paper tore to show the colored core. I loved the pop of yellow from tearing the Black Magic so I found the perfect match of yellow in the Core Essentials Brights Collection and used that as my background paper.
Next time you need a pop of color in your paper project, try tearing your Core’dinations!
And Kim Moreno just uses a touch of tearing on her layout below. She does a great job mixing embossing, tearing, scoring ANd outlining on here. Again…don’t be afraid to check out our technique videos for more ideas!
During the holidays I was finally able to my sisters kids and mine together for a group picture… it wasn’t easy to get them all to smile and look at the camera but I managed to get one good shot in and just love it! I couldn’t wait to print and scrap it!
I used my ScorPal tool to create the embossed lines around the edge of my layout. I like doing this because I feel like it frames my layouts well and I like the look.
I then placed a large chipboard star behind my layout where I wanted it and using my Sand It Gadget sanded over the top of the cardstock to reveal the star image below the cardsock. I trimmed different sized stars from cardstock and embossed and sanded them each and attached to my layout using pop dots to a few of them to give them more dimension. I used the star embossing folder to emboss a strip of gray cardstock and sanded it to reveal the lighter gray core the tore the edge of some green cardstock and made banners of each and adhered to my layout. I added the title to finish my layout.
