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!
