Spring Decor with Kate Nolan Denham

It was a long, white winter here in Maine and sand we are craving spring so I decided to bring a bit of it inside with some pretty spring decor created with Core’dinations Jillian Spotted, Tillie Spotted Cardstock and Whitewash Collections.
Cutting titlework out of Core’dinations Cardstock is always a plus when looking to compliment your layout, project or card perfectly.  I cut the “Hello Spring” out of Core’dinations Whitewash Collection using my Silhoutte.
When working with Core’dinations Cardstock for my titlework, I like to use the following process:
1) Run the cut title through a Xyron Create-a-Sticker, making sure to rub and peel before you pull the plastic off.

2) Keeping the titlework on the adhesive backing, sand the Core’dinations Cardstock with Sand It Gadget until the color core shows.

3) Using your Dust Buddy, dust the sanded titlework.

4) Add any liquid you may use to enhance the color core to your title work before taking the titlework off the adhesive backing.

The pinwheels are cut out of Core’dinations Jillian Spotted Collection.  This fun dotted collection is just perfect for the whimsical pinwheels.

Being one not to waste good negatives, I made two cards out of the titlework negatives.
