Hi Everyone! Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them. And they are very different! I was inspired this week by two different things.
First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….
There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card. It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps
Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards! For the original video check out the WRMK blog .
I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.
And here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.
Only TWO days left of our Design Team introductions! Time flies, doesn’t it?
Before we get started today, we wanted to let you know about ANOTHER fun week next week filled with MORE inspiration, MORE fun and MORE giveaways!!! So don’t go far. If you love Core, stamps and ribbon come back Monday.
Today we are introducing Gail Linder!
My name is Gail Lindner and I live in sunny Queensland, Australia. I have a wonderful, hardworking husband, a beautiful (and energetic) 5 year old daughter and gorgeous 20 month old baby boy.I’ve been scrapbooking for over 12 years now and I can’t imagine my life without it! I started scrapbooking in 1999 on a trip to the USA. I picked up a scrapbooking magazine and the rest is history! I immediately knew it was the hobby for me as it encompasses everything I love – memories, photos, memorabilia and (let’s face it) pretty things! I’m mostly inspired by my photos and the stories I want to tell. I love the idea of conveying my thoughts and experiences in my scrapbooking for my daughter to read in the future. I like to keep my layouts fairly uncluttered and balanced, with the photos the main focus. My style includes lots of distressing, inking, layering and sewing. Apart from scrapbooking I enjoy blogging, organising and shopping (all related to scrapbooking of course!)
Check out her blog here for more fabulous inspiration!
Now, let’s chat about this layout for a second…see those stripes? NOT patterned paper. Nope..those are sanded strips of Black Magic! How cool is that? Here is a little bit about this layout from Gail:
Those stripes in the Black Magic are brilliant!
AND…since we have been all about the Black Magic on Gail’s layout…why don’t we give some away today!
And our winner of the Tim Holtz Kraft Core from yesterday is………………..
Hi Clare, gotta say I love the paper ruffles on your card. And love the colors in this collection as well. Don’t think I have seen any paper packs I did not like
Did you know that we are offering the BRAND NEW Tim Holtz Shattered collection in 6×6? Oh yeah!
And, since we are in the purple mood today….how about another layout from Design Team Member April Derrick. For this layout April paired her Shattered Cardstock with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core. These two lines were designed in the exact same color scheme (No. 1, No.2, etc) so they core’dinate perfectly!
AND our Tim Holtz Kraft-Core is available in 6×6 now, too!!!!
April used a stencil from The Crafters Workshop to sand the base piece of Kraft Core. Just put your Core on top of it and sand and you get a really cool design!
This is the last day of our week with SCOR PAL. Do you have one of these? Well, if you are a paper craft you better. AND if you love Core, then you BETTER! Scoring, then sanding with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only way to go. We hope that you have found some new and exciting ways use your Scor-Pal.
Scoring raises the cardstock so you can sand it and release that inner Core. It’s gorgeous AND both design teams are going to show you easy and fabulous ways the Scor Pal products and Core’dinations can add interested to your papercrafting projects.
Did you know we have a Scoring Video? Check out our Technique videos for some awesome ideas on what you can do with Core, including the scoring video.
PLEASE make sure you check out the Scor Pal blog for some iNcReDiBle designs this week (I think there might be a prize over there ). They SIMPLY rock. You know we always have something up our sleeve for you when we do these fun blog events so keep commenting for a chance to win some great Core’dinations Cardstock!
Design Team Member April Derrick created this cool envelope for her layout to keep Core Tags with her journaling and some photos. Brilliant!
Don’t forget your Scor Tape!\
EEEEK! May Arts Ribbon!
Some more scoring….
