Remember those fun stamping techniques you can do with bleach pens???

Well..I was cleaning out some older Design team projects and came across this awesome layout from Designer April Derrick using her bleach pen and one of the FAB stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop.  How cool is that?  The cardstock is Chocolate Box so see how the bleach goes through the first layer of the brown wash and that cool red core comes through?!

And next Apri mixed some My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions with Tim Holtz Kraft Core….mix and match those Core collections for maximum impact. Then layer them on some Black Magic …who needs patterned paper????

Ah…My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions…gorgeous, isn’t it?

Design Team Member Shaunte Wadely created this gorgeous gorgeous layout using the My Mind’s  Eye Core Impressions as her base and then accents in Vintage Cardstock and Core Essentials.  Oh and don’t forget about the Core Tags. They are great for journaling and just that perfect accent.

AND the flowers are from our friennds over at Petaloo. The flowers are dyed to match our cardstock. How cool is that??

Happy Tutorial Tuesday!
We have a fun tut today from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress. Kim created these SUPER cute bow ties for those fun Easter candy treats you get on a stick. AdorAble!
BOW TIES
1 Start with your choice of Core’dinations cardstock (Kim used My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions), Sand it Gadget and  a Dust buddy.
2 On a piece of scrap 12 inch cardstock draw this design- basically think of it as two fish kissing. Mine is approx 2 inches wide.
3 Cut it out and then trace around it onto your core cardstock and cut out.
4 Using your sanding block sand the embossed pattern of your cardstock. Remember to wipe off the excess dust with your dust buddy.
5 Take your scissors and cut a slit in the indented end (cut half way through), now turn your cardstock 180 degrees and repeat at the other end but make sure it’s on the opposite side.
6 Now comes the tricky part, twist your cardstock over and join each slit cut into the cardstock
7 You should now have something that looks like this.
8 Push down on the centre of the loop as shown.
9 Staple through all the layers to hold it together.
10 Cut a strip approx 1 inch wide of a coordinating pattern paperand wrap around the middle of your bow and glue into place.
11 Now take your chocolate bunny on a stick and using strong adhesive, adhere the back of your bow to the stick as shown. Allow to dry.
12 Your bunny is complete
CUTE!
