Cards, Cards, and a layout!

Creating with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered line is SO MUCH fun! This card was just perfect for using this line.   Did you know that all the Kraft Core lines Core’dinate? Design Team Member Debbie Standard embossed the Core shattered and lightly sanded it so that it would show both the Shattered as well as the embossed image.

Supply List:
Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered
Core EssentialsNeutrals 6×6
Sand it Gadget
Dust Buddy
Cuttlebug
Lifestyle Crafts Folder
American Crafts sticker
Creative Charms flowers
Queen & Co. Pearls

Debbie made this card using some of the Tim Holtz Shattered collection in the 6 X 6.  This time she didn’t emboss it just left it as is.  Then she layered it over Core Essentials Brights cardstock and stamped on the back of the white for the top of the card.

And a layout using some BasicGrey Core Impressions: According to Debbie, she loves creating  layouts using some of the Core Impressions as the background .  Sanded and dusted it creates such a great palette to use on your page.

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program? We sure do! We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers. How easy is that???

Today we have a variety of projects for you.

First up Design Team Member Kim Jeffress with a gorgeous wall hanging. There is nothing like some warm fall colors to brighten up any room.

This project is the perfect example of the Core’dinations and Petaloo color matching program.

And how much do you love  the colors of this card from Design Team Member Char Dobson???  Gorgeous gorgeous! I just love Core. You know why?  Because you can emboss it on your own or use the Core Impressions like Char did on this card. She embossed a piece of Core Essentials in orange and then used a piece of BasicGrey in Mantis on the bottom.  Again…the flowers match perfectly!

And Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira has another fun Fall project for us. She altered a bucket she had lying around the house with some beautiful details. Melissa used her Spellbinders dies in addtion to May  Arts Ribbon and Petaloo flowers. The great thing about these flowers is that you can color them!  Melissa used Tim Holtz Distress ink on the flowers because they were a little bright for the  fall color scheme. Again, just perfect for ANY project.

And Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this soft and feminine layout for us today. Nothing screams little girl like pink , flowers and ribbon! The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions.

We will start off from a gorgeous layout from Design Team member Cari Locken featuring an awesome mix of our different collections. She included the Core Amour Onyx Collection, Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions, Vintage and Core Jenni Bowlin Impressions.

Here is a close-up of how Cari cut the Jenni Bowlin letters from the alpha cardstock and raised them with the Helmar Zap dots:

Next up Design team member Sarah Hodginkson has some super cute invites with Helmar Zap dots, tape runner and SRM STickers and Core Essentials Cardstock:

A super cool layout from Design Team Member Hera Frei (even thought it’s about getting stuck in a Hurricane!). Hera adhered the clouds in various layers with Helmar Zap dots and used her Helmar Tape Runner. Also Hera used the  Core Impressions for the clouds. SO easy…just punch them out and they are embossed and ready to go!

And a card from Design Team member Ellen Sosnoski using some, yep! You guessed it…Helmar Zap dots on the sentiment and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for the tag and ribbon (also a mix of Vintage Cardstock and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions):
