Torn Cardstock Halloween Witch Hat

I looooove Halloween! And when I got my hands on this Darice witch hat, I knew it screamed the need for some  Core’dinations Cardstock.

Torn Cardstock Witch Hat Supplies:

Step 1: Paint the top and bottom of the hat black just in case any of the base of the hat sneaks through. Basic black craft paint works just fine.

Step 2: Tear different strips of Core’dinations ColorCore cardstock. Paper tearing never gets old! Core is great for this because the color core looks great. For tips on tearing our cardstock, view our videos here. Tear the strips, sand them with Sand it Gadget and white off with Dust Buddy. Using the Dust Buddy is important because it helps the adhesive stick.

Step 3: Adhere torn strips, rotating colors and patterns on the top of the hat and finish off with some May Arts Ribbon.

Step 4: Place on a pumpkin or other decoration.

Turkey Treat Holders

As the holidays approach, it’s fun to start planning and creating those special little things that make a hand-crafted celebration.  In my family, we usually have small favors for each of our guests.  I’m always hunting for ideas that are cute, but aren’t too expensive or too time consuming to make. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get a jump start with these adorable Turkey Treat Holders.  Won’t these look fabulous on the dinner table?

003Turkey Treat Holder Supplies:

Step 1.  Die cut feathers.  With this die, I was easily able to cut 4 layers of paper at a time.

Step 2.   Add ribbon around the lip of the pot.

Step 3.  Glue the feathers.

Step 4.  Hand draw turkey body.  Cut out.

Step 5.  Punch a pear shape to create the turkey’s wattle.  Snip a triangle for the beak. Use buttons and brads to create the eyes.  Attach to flower pot.

Step 6.  Wrap treats in tulle.  Tie with burlap cord and place in flower pot.

001Hope this helps make your holidays even happier!

Core Tag Fall Layout

One really great thing about living in the state of Utah is our spectacular autumns! The colors are so vibrant- I always take a lot of photos during the fall season.

I was able to incorporate TEN photos on this layout- the use of the Core tags keeps the photos and multiple embellishments from overwhelming the layout- and the wonderful textures from the Core’dinations cardstocks echo the feel of autumn.

Core Tag Fall Layout Supplies:

For the  background of the layout, I used a piece of Core Basics Textured Kraft cardstock. This cardstock is NOT sandable, like the other Core’dinations lines. However, it has a wonderful canvas texture that inks very nicely. I scored the perimeter of the layout base and then gently inked it, to create a subtle border. For the title, I cut the letters from another sheet of Core Basics Kraft and adhered it to the layout. Then I gently went over the title with ink. It is a very subtle look. I wanted to keep the focus on the tags with my photos.

Here is a close-up look at some of the fabulous textures on the tags.

Black Magic Birthday Card

Celebrate your next Birthday with a Core’dinations Black Magic card. With some simple sanding and heat embossing you can make it look just like chalkboard!

Black Magic Birthday Card Supplies:

BM cu3

Step 1.   Begin by sanding the Black Magic cardstock first. It’s important you sand BEFORE you stamp and wipe dust with Dust Buddy. Removing excess sand will help the clear ink pad stamp clearly to ensure a crisp image when you emboss.

BM cu2

Step 2. Emboss with Tim Holtz & Ranger heat embossing powder. I like to use my scraps because sometimes it takes a few tries to get a good image.

BM cu1

Step 3. Add layers of Glitter Silk and more Black Magic along with embellishments.
