Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.
We have a WOW of a Wednesday for you today from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. How many diffferent embossed patterns can you get on a layout?
Now I count SIX on this layout. Now actually it could be SEVEN because Debbie’s flowers are embossed, too! Oh no, EIGHT because she has two different kinds of embossed flowers from her Spellbinder’s dies. Now..here is the catch?!?!?! Think you can do more?!?! Well, let’s see if you can!
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO GET AS MANY EMBOSSED PATTERNS ON LAYOUT AS YOU CAN! You have until the end of this month, March 31st, to link your layout to THIS blog post or on our Facebook page. You must use Core’dinations cardstock on your project. It can be any kind…you can emboss it yourself or use our Core Impression lines so the sky is the limit!
Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!
My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading
And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:
Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:
Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies. Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice. Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.
AND ..last but not least…
My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk. So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.
So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road. All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.
These first TWO layouts are with our 6×6 paper pads! Cardmakers and scrapbookers will love these lines. Our same great cardstock just sized smaller for mini albums and cards.
How about a Glitter Silk layout from Shaunte Wadley…Shaunte used her Lifestyle Crafts die cuts for all the hearts. This cardstock cuts beautifully!!!
A Gemstones layout by Andrea Amu. Andrea embossed the Gemstones and then inked it…Looks cool!
And another Gemstone layout from Shaunte but this time in the 12×12:
Keep in mind these two lines do NOT have a sandable finish.
We love quick and easy around here. And using Core’dinations Cardstock makes it simple and elegant.
Designer Lydia Jackson has a few cards for us today. Emboss, sand, add some October Afternoon goodies, SRM stickers, May Arts Ribbon and Voila! You have some great birthday cards. Oh and a few Queen & Co pearls for that sparkle!
And for this card Lydia uses all her scraps! Notice the yellow stars she randomly adhered over the embossed image? They are the punched stars from the yellow strip.
Hope you had a GREAT weekend! We are back to our regularly scheduled blog posts. Between Holidays, flu, getting ready for CHA, Hard Core Crop prizes and more…we are busy busy!
Today we have Guest Designer Leeann Pearce with us again! Leeann is the queen of cool. Her layouts are always so awesome with layers and layers of texture and this color combo is just a classic. The gray tones that Leeann pairs together are just perfect and it’s so easy with Core’dinations Cardstock since everything “core’dinates”!
Here is a little bit about this layout from the lovely Leeann herself:
