Mary Pat here with you today. I have an easy New Year’s Card for you today using some of my favorite Core cardstock – Chalk Core and Glitter Silk! You can’t go wrong with a combination like that!
For my card I started with the Chalk Core and embossed it using an embossing folder. I then lightly sanded it. I then found an image from the internet and traced it on my Glitter Silk and cut it out. I then used the Core Basics Vellum and embossed my sentiment using embossing powder. To finalize things I added some pearls in matching colors. Very quick and easy. You can make several of these to send to friends and family!

New Year’s Eve is such a fun time to celebrate! My kids look forward to having fun activities to do on New Year’s Eve, keeping them busy most of the day up until midnight. Today I’m sharing this Hourly Countdown with you. Starting at 1pm, every hour on the hour you pull an activity out of the little bag/box and do what the paper says. It helps to pass the time, and makes for a fun day. Let me show you how to put this together for yourself.
New Year’s Eve Hourly Countdown Supplies:
- Core’dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock
- Core’dinations White Cardstock
- Jute Twine
- Clothes Pins
- Gift Bag Punch
- Paper Trimmer
- Digital Die Cutting Machine
Step 1. Trim your white cardstock to be 10″ x 4″. Save the thicker strips of the cardstock to use for the activity papers. Follow the instructions for the small bag on the punch board.
Step 2. Fold on the scored lines. Put adhesive on the flaps that need to be glued.
Step 3. Fold the bag together, sticking the adhesive together as you go.
Step 4. Using a digital die cutting machine and Glitter Silk cardstock, cut out your numbers.
Step 5. Glue your numbers to the front of your little bags.
Step 6. Use the leftover white cardstock strips to write your hourly activities. Roll them up.
Step 7. Place your rolled up papers in your bags, and use the clothes pins to clip the bags to the jute twine. Find the perfect place to hang your countdown.
Now you are all ready to ring in the New Year!
Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann with you today to share a project that reminds me of Winter fun here on the East Coast of Canada. We have an outdoor speed skating track here and every year during the holidays there are thousands of people skating on the track and which got me to thinking… why not make an ice skate!
here is a closer look at the detail…and because I wanted to create a “girlie” figure skate I had to include a pretty handmade flower on it!
3D Ice Skate Supplies:
- Core’dinations Spotted Cardstock
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Neutrals Cardstock
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy,
- Ice Skate From The Winter Gazebo SVG Kit
- Ribbon and Brads From My Stash
- Tombow Liquid Adhesive
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1. Cut out all your pieces in the cut file in the colors you desire. For a figure skate White works best but you could use any color you want.
Step 2. Sand the pieces for the base on both sides using your Sand It Gadget and don’t forget to clean up with your dust buddy! An easier way to keep your work area a little cleaner is to sand the pieces on a piece of printer paper!
Step 3. For detailed assembly of the ice skate, the creator of the cut file has a good tutorial here so be sure to check it out.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
This is a project that would be fun for kids to help with. It is simple- but a cute way to dress up some plain cupcakes, using cardstock paper that you probably already have in your stash.
Snowman Cupcake Topper Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Cardstock in Orange, and Snowflake
- Core’dinations Core Couture Glitter Cardstock in Black Tie
- 1/2″ Circle Punch
- 1 1/4″ Circle Punch
- 1 1/2″ Square Punch
- Wooden Skewer
- Google Eyes
- Paper Trimmer
Step One: Cut Snowflake cardstock into 1/2″ x 12″ strips.
Adhere two strips together to make one long strip. Begin folding the paper back and forth, side to side, to create the snowman body.
Using a small hole punch, make a hole through the center of the folded paper.
Insert wooden skewer into punched holes. Spread the folded paper out on the skewer so it is not all bunched up.
Step Two: Using circle and square punches, create snowman pieces as shown. The hat is a square punch, trimmed to create the hat brim.
Adhere the snowman pieces to the folded paper body.
Repeat for each snowman you would like to create!
