Airbrushed Core’dinations Christmas Card

Good Monday Morning! We have a fun little treat for everyone this week. We are working with Stampendous Stamps for the next three days. It’s what we like to call a “mini” hop.  Our teams have whipped up some fabulous Holiday creations just for YOU this week and, of course, we have a giveaway, too! One lucky winner will receive our infamous Chalk Core Prize pack so click HERE for more details on that.

Suzanna here today to share with you a Christmas card I created using a Dreamweaver metal stencil and some Stampendous stamps in addition to, of course, Core’dinations cardstock. I used the stencil for some airbrushing and then just simply stamped my sentiment right over top of it. The Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Cardstock Number 12 is the perfect shade of green for this Holiday season.

These metal stencils are great not only for embossing but to be used as a mask as well. I added color via my Tim Holtz Spritzer Tool as shown above. Then mask off your red and move the stencil to apply a green leaf or two for contrast. Wanting a bit more contrast and sparkle, it is a Christmas card after all, I flicked some gold mist on top of the flower.

Sentiments from Stampendous’ Tis the Season stamp set are the perfect sentiments for any Christmas card! Embossing really adds some more texture to the card and pops the sentiment so that it stands out a bit more from your artwork.

You can see really see the gold mist here and how much it adds to the card.

The Tim Holtz Shattered green cardstock mimics the veins of the poinsetta leaves for some more interest as well!

Hello again, fellow Core lovers! It’s Gini, and today I have an upcycling project to share with you, using some of my favorite products. With a little help from Core’dinations, Xyron and Petaloo, I was able to transform a lowly Pringles Chip container into a dispenser for cosmetic cotton rounds.

Step 1.  Measure around your container and cut paper to fit.

Step 2.  Draw a template for your opening on scrap cardstock. Cut in the center of the paper as well as the canister.

Cut Outs

Step 3.  Stamp decorative border at the top and bottom of the paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with gold powder. Tip: Sometimes metallic embossing powders leave a residue.  Use the Dust Buddy after embossing to remove this powder.

Step 4.  Run the paper through the Creative Station machine to apply adhesive. Carefully adhere to the canister, lining up the openings.

Step 5.  Ink the back of the vellum quote with metallic gold.  Die cut a frame using the Glitter Silk cardstock.

Step 7.  Cut a circle to match the top of the canister.  Add trim around the top and bottom of the canister and lid to hide the raw edges.

Step 8.  Spritz the flowers with gold and let dry and add the embellishments to the canister to finish as shown.

So remember, look at your empty containers with a creative eye, before you take out your trash!  See you soon.
