Chocolate, right?  Well we have the next bext thing today… Chocolate Box cardstock!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mary Pat here with a fun layout all about corrugating! For a video on how to do this technique with your paper crimper click HERE to view our Technique videos.

Playing with the Chocolate Box collection is really fun!  Just take the Chocolate Box and run it through a paper crimper.  When you lightly sand the paper the blue core comes through  and it is just amazing!

Next, tear the bottom in order to really expose more of the colored core.  Continue to add layers like the Spotted Core Cardstock  and sand.  Add a photo, some sewing and fun embellishments  and you have a great layout.

And we have Ava Gavloski  here with a  cute little shaped card for Easter.

Sometimes it’s a refreshing change to make a shaped card.  Here I used the Core’dinations Core Essential’s Pastel Collection. Just Emboss and sand the card to show the inner core.

I embellished my card with a die cut from Spellbinders, May Arts Ribbon and ScrapFX chipboard to give the card some layers and texture.  The Core’dinations Pastel collection colors core’dinate so well with each other!

Accordian Easter card by Suzanna Lee

Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

MarchEsterPrjct_SuzannaLee

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

 Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:

Mary Pat Siehl is sharing a fun Easter themed card for us today featuring some stamping and our BRAND NEW 110 cardstock. But guess what? She isn’t just stamping on it, she embosses it and stamps on her Core Essentials, too!
1.  Start with Core 110 lb smooth cardstock and emboss it using a Darice embossing folder.
2. Stamp  bunny and carrot on 110lb Smooth Cardstock and color with Spectrum Noir Markers.
TIP: Want that sanded look from your ColorCore Cardstock on stamped images?   Sand your cardstock first using your Sand it Gadget from Core’dinations.

Clean the surface of your paper and then stamp your image. Making sure you clean your surface with a Dust buddy is SO important! Your image will stamp much much cleaner!

I stamped my eggs and then fussy cut them out.  Now they have a bit of a soft distress feel to them even though they were in the bright collection! Last but not least I cut some grass out using the Gemstone collection and my Silhouette and here is what I came up with!

Spring has sprung!

Hi Everyone! Tracy Gruber here! Hopefully it’s starting to feel like spring where you are!  I decided to create my own beautiful flowers out of Core’dinations card stock to get me in the mood for spring and summer.  Start out by cutting the hydrangea from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge at 4 inches.  Next, emboss a piece of White Wash card stock with the Cloudy Sky embossing folder from Darice.  I de-embossed it and sanded it so the clouds stayed white and the sky became blue.  Then, tear two strips of brown card stock to create the “dirt” at the bottom on the card.  Use the Fiskar’s grass border punch and Kraft Core card stock to create the grass that is behind the dirt.  Die cut the clouds from white card stock and stamp the sentiment on the medium cloud.  Adhere everything together for a fun card!

I love to create 3D flowers with my Core card stock.  After a little sanding, they start to look real!  Die cut the flowers using the Spellbinder’s Rose Creations die.  Bend each flower petal and then sand each one with the Sand It Gadget.  I like to attach each flower layer together with a brad, but you could use whatever you want. For the card base, layer together a piece of yellow and dark purple card stock.  Sand the purple card stock to give it a distress look.  Attach a white Core Tag to the card base and stamp the sentiment.  Lastly, attach each flower and the leaves onto the card front.

The ombre trend is hot right now and I love to use my Core card stock to create ombre backgrounds.  We have been having gorgeous sunsets lately, so I was inspired to create a card with a sunset that looks like it’s on fire!  I tore strips of red, orange, and yellow card stock and attached them to a white card base.  I die cut the sky line with a Memory Box die and used Glitter Silk for the buildings windows.  The windows look like they are really lit up because of all of the sparkle from the Glitter Silk card stock!  I used the speech bubble die from Simon Says Stamp and stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment on it.
