 Welcome to the Core Tip of the Month! 

If you are here then you are receiving our BRAND NEW Hard Core Crafter newseltter! We hope you are enjoying it so far. Not on the list?  Sign up HERE !

This month we want to share some tips with you about designing  Ombre.

 It’s so EASY with our Core Essentials color families like this layout using the Cobalt Blues.  From dark to the light the colors are:
Klondlike Blue, Evening Sky, Celestial and Blue Lilac. We sell all of our Core Essentials cardstock in open stock so ask your favorite retailer to get some of your favorite colors. And we have some in 8.5×11 as well!

Just emboss different patterns, add hand cut or punch embellishments and sand using your Sand It Gadget to create  texture.

Here is a layout from Tracy Gruber using the yellows from our Core Essentials Collection pads. They come in 12×12″ pads or 6×6″ pads.

Tracy only used three colors in her layout.  The darkest is from the Darks Collection pad, the middle one is from Brights Collection pad, and the lightest is from the Pastels paper pad.  She embossed each of the 1 inch circles with the Darice Circles embossing folder and sanded them with the Sand It Gadget.

Then, just add different embellishments from your stash and you are good  to go!

And how about another card from Design Team Member Heather Kaesgan? A super cute card using some Marvy Uchida punches and Glitter Silk, Core Couture, Core Essentials and a Darice embossing folder for the buttons. What a great mix don you think? Love how the ribbon that she created with the punches pops off the top a bit. Oh of cours..Tombow adhesive!

Monthly Core Tip: Tear Those Core Tags!

Welcome to the Core Tip of the Month! If you are here then you are receiving our BRAND NEW Hard Core Crafter newseltter! We hope you are enjoying it so far. Not on the list?  Sign up HERE !

This month we want to share some tips with you about designing our Core Tags. We love, love them here at Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock.  They come in a variety of sizes and colors to match our Pastels, Brights and Darks collection packs, not to mention individual packs of all white. They have a great texture, a metal grommet and you will find they are great for journaling, adding titles and much, much more!

For this project, Designer Kim Moreno used tags from the Brights Collection pack and tore the bottom of one of the Core Tags to create that perfect amount of added interest and texture.

For more tips on tearing Core’dinations Cardstock, make sure you check out our Technique videos HERE.

 But keep in mind you don’t always need to tear them…you can just stack your tags on your layouts for journaling, too. April Derrick did just this and added some doodling to her tags to personalize them a bit, too! The white tags are perfect for this…
