We are having a super fun 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.

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.

They SIMPLY rockYou 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!

Today we are all about Vintage with Designer Andrea Amu! Here is a little bit about her card:

I used all Tim Holtz Kraft Core here.
Scor-Pal product used includes the Score-Bug tool that I used to create a design of perforations for the blue background, and the 1/4″ score tape that I used to add the red torn edge strip to the card base’s right side edge.  I used the Sand It Gadget to sand over all of the Kraft Core’s scored surface and the torn edge to reveal more of the Kraft color and to add to the worn vintage distressed look.  My cuts were done using the Ashlyn’s Alphabet Cricut cartridge and the ornate tree die cut was embellished with some Diamond Dust glass glitter and Queen & Co. Bling pearls.
And a close up of that cool detail from the Scor Bug!
Don’t forget!   We are sponsoring DAY THREE of  Scrapbook & Cards today’s 12 Days of giveaways. You have until NOON Dec 22nd 2012 to post on their blog HEREto win ONE EACH of our 6×6 collection packs!

Today we have some gorgeous designs from Designer Shaunte Wadley. She created this beautiful flower on the card just by using some simple scoring. The flower is a Lifestyle Crafts die so you could really do this with any flower.

See how Shaunte scores from the back?  That is important so the raised line is on the front of the cardstock. Especially when you are sanding.

And a close-up of it on the card. Keep in mind sanding the Gemstones will take off the shine so you may not want to sand it.

AND Shaunte  created her frame on this card by scoring and using the VERY FUN Scor Bug Embosser!!! It makes these fun dots that look so great sanded.

AND she scored the woodgrain on the branch using some Vintage Cardstock. So you can see all the really amazing details you can get on your projects just by scoring and sanding. The base of the card is Whitewash.

And another card for you from Shaunte using Core Essentials and loads of scoring.

Bling is from Queen & Co and Ribbon is from May Arts.

We shoot….

WE SCOR!

Oh gosh, sorry. I might have been typing this during Sunday night football! But you know how we get excited about Core’dinations here and when there are tools out there that enhance all the great things you can do with it, I gotta shout it from the rooftops!

So, I guess the cat is out of the bag and you know we are having a super fun 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.

So let’s see what Designer Char Dobson has in store for us today…

Start by cutting a piece of cardstock 8.5″ x 4.5″. Scor at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ (these are what the dots on your Scor-Pal are for). You can make gate fold cards in any size you want, just gauge them by the pre-measured lines on the Scor-Pal.

PLEASE NOTE:  This is the older version of the Scor Pal and that the newer one has 1/4″ score marks and 1/8″ marks at each end.

I like bling, so I added a little sparkle to my already shimmery Gemstones cardstock by inking and glittering my embossing folder before running the paper through my Cuttlebug. This is a little messy – but the end product is gorgeous! Nothing a little soap and water can’t handle, right?
Glitter is from  Stampendous and ink is ColorBox.
Now emboss it and the ink and glitter will adhere to the card.
And the inside is super easy. Just add your own sentiment, stamping..whatever you want to include…it’s that easy!
Simply adhere some chipboard and finish off with a little bit of bling there as well!
And want to see the magic of creating your own patterns with the Scor -Pal and Core’dinations? It’s so easy!
Remember…you have to start from the BACK so the raised part of the carstock is on the front.
So…Scor…Sand…and you can have THIS!
Designer Debbie Standard with will have more designs for us tomorrow!
Loving this sentiment tag???  It’s from David Tutera!! So easy and elegant, don’t you think?

Stay tuned later today for our Hard Core Crop WINNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She runs…she shoots..she SCORES!

Okay maybe we don’t have that kind of “Score”  here at the Core Blog but we got something BETTER!

We do this kind of SCORING! Need some more tips?  Make sure you check out our videos here. The possibilities are endless. You can make any design you want!!!! There is one  important tip  to remember when you are  SCOR with CORE.

Remember to score from the BACK of the cardstock. That way the raised scor image is on the front and you can sand it.

Design Team Member Leica Forrest scor’d her heart out on these layouts.

Core Essentials works beautifully for scoring. Notice the outline sanding Leica did for her title, too? SO COOL!

This layout is jam-packed with technique, too. From the embossed Black Magic scalloped shapes (using Spellbinder’s dies)to the  scoring and use of the label maker…

This is one awesome layout!

Easter Tutorial Tuesday

Filed under Core Blog, Scor Pal

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today’s Tutorial comes from Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char made the cutest Easter Treat Bags using Core’dinations Vintage Cardstock and is sharing them with us today.

Step 1: Cut a 4” x 12” piece of Core’dinations cardstock. Using the back side of your cardstock; score at 4.5”, 6.5” and 11”.

Step 2: Using your scoring tool, make a grid line pattern on the 4” x 4.5” section.

Step 3: Fold along 4.5”, 6.5” and 11” scored lines. Turn cardstock over and sand with your Sand It Gadet.

Step 4: Cut a window into the grid section using your Nestabilities, Coluzzle or other cutting tool. The window should be slightly closer to the fold line.

Step 5: If desired, add an alternate piece of 2” x 4” cardstock on the 1” end flap. This is what your treat bag should look like so far:

Step 6: Line up cardstock and punch holes through the 4” x 4.5” grid section and 2” flap. Embellish. I used my Cricut to cut out tiny egg shapes, and ran them through my Xyron sticker maker.

Step 7: Place treats in a small plastic or cellophane bag. Staple on to the inside of the 4” x 6.5” section.

Step 8: Fold treat bag together and place the flap over top. Run a cute ribbon through and you’re finished!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
