One of my favorite sentiments by myStamp Box…

For the WCMD challenge, they must be linked by October 2nd, midnight PST.

Don’t you think?
We sure do here at Core! Have you seen our tried our Glitter Silk paper yet? If you haven’t, you must!
It is smooth as silk and cuts beautifully…and the best part is that it doesn’t shed glitter all of your scrapbook room and yourself. There have been plenty of times I have walked around the house or even the grocery store with glitter on my face and didn’t even know it! This won’t happen with this versatile cardstock.
And p.s…..don’t forget to check out our June Challenge!!!
All you need to do is journal and show us a fun Hard Core technique and you can get up to TWO chances to win!!
Check out details here.
And a close up of the die cut flowers from Lifestyle Crafts:
The sentiment is from MyStamp Box and embossed with clear embossing powder and the flowers are layered with Helmar Zapdots.
AND we have more YOU know how much we LOVE color ’round here so if you like this color combination here it is for you:
We have one more post for you to help you be inspired for all of those rockin’ men in your life.
How about some Teresa Collins Core Amour love from Brianne Nevill? On the Edge is perfect for those projects ar LOVE the white journaling around the edges of the Black Magic base. What a great idea and perfect inspiration for our Journaling challenge!!!
You still have time to get those entries in for a prize pack of CORE
And check out this amazing detail! Gosh that guitar is so awesome!!!
We hope this week is going to be a great one for you. Today we wanted to showcase a few projects using different lines of Core’dinations. The great thing about our cardstock is that you can mix and match our lines to create unique, one of a kind projects.
Each line core’dinates with the others! So get out that Core Impressions and Core Amour and that Vintage and Core Essentials and get ready to be inspired.
If this card by Design Team member Heather Bowser doesn’t get your week started of brilliantly than I don’t know what will. Check out the mix of textures and different Core’dinations cardstock (Vintage, Core Essentials, Stacy Julian Core Impressions).
Have you seen our video on paper tearing? It is such a simple and effective way to add texture and release that gorgeous inner core!
Have a great week. I have a busy day today picking our winners from our Facebook give-a-way last week and this weekend so stay tuned for some announcements!
For some Chocolate? Chocolate Box that is….
Firs up is a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Debbie used Chocolate Box as the base of her layout here. Debbie used Chocolate Box with a blue core and sanded the scored frame to accent the blues throughout the layout. Also note on both of these layouts the hearts at the bottom of the page!
This layout is from Design Team Member Cari Locken. Brown looks GREAT with everything! The colors on this layout are gorgeous…blues…reds…greens and Cari anchors this layout with some Vintage cardstock as the base and uses the Mint Chocolate Chip Chocolate Box to accent the green. Remember: all of our lines Core’dinate! So the green in the Core of the Chocolate box core’dinates perfectly with the green from the Core Essentials. Isn’t that great? Makes matching colors for your project so easy.
Good Morning and happy Wednesday to you! Today we have some fun projects for you featuring our go to techniques with Core’dinations.
Whitewash. And printed her sentiment on the cardstock from her computer….
Flower is from Queen & Co.
And check out the amazing techniques on this card from Debbie Standard. Punching, stamping with some myStampBOX stamps, embossing, die cutting…GORGEOUS!

We’ll leave you with a beautiful card from Design Team Member Cari Locken. A perfect to express how much we love all the support from YOU! Check out the gorgeous stamping on our Whitewash Cardstock using some myStamp Box stamps. You can stamp on the textured side and the smooth size. Another way to show how Versatile our cardstock is!
Cardstock is Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions (Whitewash). Embellishments from Queen & Co.
One quick thing before we get started we want to make sure you head back here tomorrow because we have a give-a-way ready to go for Friday and it lasts all weekend long so make sure you check back tomorrow!
Here on the East Coast it’s been cooooold. But just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate a little bit of life and color around there! And if you know us here at Core’dinations…we LOVE color.
So let’s start with the primary colors…or at least two of them. Hera Frei created this layout using blue and yellow and a few neutrals. Core Essentials is the perfect cardstock to use when you are searching for color. And our paper packs make it easy for you! And make sure you check out that totally cool random embossing! Your Quickutz handles, rolling pins and hammers make it easy for you to do this fun technique.
And a colorful card from Sarah Hodgkinson. On this card Sarah uses color blocking that is really striking and simple. And take notice NO sanding! GASP! yes, we do that around here, too! Don’t be afraid to use your Core’dinations “as is”. It’s beautiful and effective.
Red, Teal and Yellow make a striking color combination from Melissa Oliveira especially against the black background. AND if you use some Black Magic, you can accent one of the main colors by choosing a “core’dinating” core color with your Black Magic. Melissa created this layout last year but when looking through the gallery, this color combo really jumped out at me. There are so many great details, too…the stamping with myStampBox stamps, the sanding with the Black Magic under the title in the upper left corner, the Jenni Bowlin Core Impression title, the embossing…so fun!
HAVE A COLORFUL WEEKEND!!!
Happy Friday Everyone! We are back on track with our Fabulous Friday Finds. About a month or so ago, Jolene Johnston linked our Facebook Page with some amazing cards. I sent her a message asking if we could feature them here on the blog and she said, yes! Well, it gets better….she created a BRAND new project for us! So, if you want to see those gorgeous cards click here to go our Facebook Page and check them out. And if you want to see more of her work, click here for Jolene’s blog.
Now let’s check out the amazing details on this layout!
1.) The inking of the embossed dots on the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions.
3.) All the different techniques…punching, embossing, sanding, tearing (see close up below)
4.) AND, yes there’s more if you look closely…Jolene used a neutral piece of Core Essentials as her base for this layout. Remember, Core’dinations Cardstock can be your go to cardstock for all of your needs!
5.) AND Jolene used some awesome stamps (one of my favorites) from our preferred partner myStamp Box!
6.) Those great photos of that handsome boy
And another gorgeous layout. The monochromatic feel is gorgeous, especially with embossed patterns.
Love the two embossed patterns together!!!
Make sure you tell Jolene how much you enjoyed her work! We sure did! Have a great weekend.
To day ONE of Helmar and Core’dinations Teaming up for some fabulous inspiration. Make sure you leave us a comment today and every day for more chances to win some of our unique cardstock.
The first of today’s projects comes from Cari Locken. This Happy New Year card is too perfect to start this week off, don’t you think? Cari used Core Essentials and Vintage Cardstock on this card. She turned the textured side over to the backside of the cardstock for some smooth stamping with her myStampBOX Stamps. And, OF COURSE, Helmar Zap dots!
Here is a close up of the Zap Dots:
This next project is from Hera Frei. Hera made festive Chinese New year envelopes. Hera shares some background on this project with us today, “An ancient custom which has an important role in Chinese New Year is Hong Bao. This involves gifting small red envelopes filled with “lucky money”. These envelopes are given to children and unmarried adults by the married couples. The red color is considered to bring good fortune, and the money inside the envelope is used by them to buy holiday treats”.
These envelopes looks so amazing in the Couture cardstock, don’t they? And Hera embossed them, too! Love the look of the glittery cardstock embossed.
Hera made the basic envelope using a template and red Core Couture Cardstock and sealed it with Quick Dry Adhesive. Then punched some stars using a Fiskars punch and then used Zap Dots to layer them. She also used the Zap Dots to seal the gemstone to the top star and then finished them off with a SRM Sticker.
Do us a favor and make sure you head over to Helmar’s Facebook Page and tell them thanks for a fabulous day!
