How about a super fun layout from Designer Suzanna Lee???

This layout was all about technique for me. I hand cut my own solid stamp, matching the outer edge of the strawberry. I colored the stamp with my Gelatos, misted it then printed the image onto a Core’dinations tag. I repeated this several times. I then stamped over that image with the actual Lawn Fawn stamp from Summertime Charm using black ink. Then I used the coordinating die to cut a few strawberries out. I love the little ants crawling around for those juicy strawberries!

and using the interlocking backdrops  with some Chocolate Box…loooove the subtle look of this. Debbie added some May Arts ribbon to both of her cards and a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system  sentiment. These are GREAT if  you don’t have  a sentiment stamp that fits your needs.

Next up a funky cool layout from Designer Ava Gavloski. LOVE how she created a layout and used the So much to say You’ve Got Mail  sets in such a cool and unique way!

Who’s ready for some projects?

First up designer Kate Nolan Denham with a layout:

Stamping on the backside of the textured Core’dinations Cardstock is one of my favorite ways to use that smooth side of the paper.  It always leaves me with a crisp image that pops.   Today I used Lawn Fawn’s “Many Thanks” sentiment stamps and “Quinn’s ABCs” to stamp the titlework of my layout on the smooth side of  Core’dinations Cardstock.  
 
To create the fun scalloped bottom, I debossed my Core’dinations Cardstock using a contrasting ink on my embossing folder. So, for the purple cardstock, I used a blue ink and for the blue cardstock, I used a purple ink. Looks cool don’t you think? Then I punched out lots of circles, cut them in half and alternated the colors in five layers

Please make sure you head over to the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration AND their Facebook page.  Their Design Team is incredible and you don’t want to miss anything.

First up we have Designer Tracy Gruber with a super cute card:

I love my Lawn Fawn stamps, so I was very excited to pair them with Core!  I started with the Whitewash paper and embossed it with the Swirls embossing folder.  I sanded the de-embossed side, so more of the blue color showed.  I then stamped the tree from the Critters in the Forest set twice and kept one piece whole and the other one I cut each other the “sections” apart.  I then attached each of the pieces to the whole tree and popped up the bottom with Tombow Foam Tabs to give it dimension.  I used the green Core Vintage paper and tore it to create the grass for my scene.

And one last card today from Designer Kim Moreno!
I embossed the base of my card and sanded the dots slightly to reveal the color core of the cardstock, round the bottom edges of the card. I then used the long leafy stamp from the Lawn Fawn blissful botanicals set and stamped several rows in different colors and then punched them into circles and then punched again smaller circles within the larger circles. I then adhered them all to the yellow cardstock and adhered it to the center of the card. I stamped “thanks” several times on a white strip of cardstock and adhered below to finish my card.
Thanks kim m
