Creating a Border with Core Tags

Core Tags make great decorative elements for your layouts. They come in all colors and sizes and are easy to run through your embossing machine. If you don’t fee comfortable taking out the metal gromments, just line the tags up so that part is sticking out of your embossing folder.

I was initially really hesitant about the silver grummets, not wanting them to get smooshed from the pressures of the rollers however it wasn’t a problem! The depth of the embossing folder is akin to that of the grummet so it’s a non-issue (so long as you have the grummet outside the embossing folder!).

Fun in the Sun Layout

Mary Pat here with you today and I have a fun summer layout to share with you. On the layout I used one of my all time favorite Core’dinations Techniques- Tearing!

Supply list:

To create the beautiful looking “ocean” background I took 3 different shades of blue Core’dinations cardstock and tore the edges and then layered them to create the “ocean” effect. I just love all the texture and dimension this technique creates! I also cut several elements using my Silhouette. Have I told you lately how well the Core’dinations cardstock cuts in the Silhouette? Well, it cuts like BUTTA!

I made a video for you on how this layout came about. I hope you like it!

Chalk Core Cards

Chalk Core really does take the look of a chalkboard. A fun way to mass produce simple cards, that look like they took a lot of time to create.

Supplies:
I wanted to show you today, the difference between the look of embossing (raised image) on Chalk Core, and de-bossing (embedded image.)The card on the left is debossed- the Chalk Core cardstock was inserted upside down. This embeds the image into the cardstock, so when it is sanded, the dark color remains in the embedded areas. The card on the right is embossed. The Chalk Core cardstock was inserted right side up, so when it is sanded, the color on the raised area is removed, revealing the core of the cardstock.

Two great looks, one embossing folder, and one specialty cardstock!

Chalk Core cardstock has a smooth surface, and it wonderful for wet embossing too. I added the sentiment by stamping it with white ink, and then adding white embossing powder and heat setting it.

End of Summer Birthday Bash!

For my son’s 9th Birthday he was having a pool party at our house. I know our pool is still open for business even though school has started! Everything was themed ‘Splish Splash’ so I pulled out some fabulous Core’dinations Cardstock  and got to work with my Silhouette cutting all kinds of little bits to decorate with!

Let’s start off with this cute little frame from the David Tutera Wedding Collection.  Perfect for any occasion …. including a 9 year old boys birthday party:

One of my favorite things were these fun water bottle tags.  With (15) 9 year olds running around all afternoon I knew I needed to try and keep their drinks straight so I cut these super fun shapes and made these name tags for each of them.

I started with the pre-made tag base using the Smooth Bookmarks (Bright) and punched a hole in the top to slip over the top of the water bottle.
