Hope you are LOVING this week’s projects!  We sure are. And today we a super cute AND creative card from Design Team Member Andrea Amu featuring the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found mini collection.

How fun is this little guy?  Perfect for those men in your life …or ladies….I know I would love to receive this for sure.

And a close up…the “fun” sentiment is sanded and hand cut  from the My Mind’s Eye mini collection pack and so is the scalloped shape in the back (see below). So many great uses for it….

Add some glitter from Stampendous and you have a fabulous card with amazing details!  Oh and don’t forget the Petaloo flower. The one Andrea used is white but they are dyed to match Core papers, too!

MORE Tim Holtz Shattered in here!

Some more Tim Holtz Shattered Collection layouts!  This line was a HUGE hit at CHA…you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

A layout from Designer April Derrick:

Check out the fun folded card we learned from Guest Designer Leeann Pearce AND see that cool  postage stamp layer in the Kraft?  YEP…that is from the David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system Step two. We LOVE mixing and matching these collections!

And another postage stamp layer from the David Tutera line. Told ya we liked ‘em! :)

On this layout, Designer April Derrick  used her Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Chipped Saphire by Ranger and inked the Shattered cardstock. See how the stain just soaks up in the cracks and turned blue??!?!?!?  HOW COOL IS THAT??? And she embossed some of it too (the layer under the photo). So many possibilities!

Stay tuned for more ideas on is BRAND NEW Line that we debuted at CHA 2013 featuring Tim Holtz-Kraft Core!

Stampendous, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, and Ranger Distress Stains

WE ARE STILL GOING STRONG WITH THE CROP!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT! Make sure you check out the Master Challenge List HERE.

Did you know that our friends over at Stampendous have a very fun challenge for us for our Hard Core {Holiday} Crop??

Check it out HERE. All you need is some Core and stamps!!!! And the winner will get a pack of our Darks Collection pack. The rich tones of this cardstock is PERFECT for this time of year.

Designer April Derrick has a layout for us! Stampendous has the CUTEST and FUNNIEST sentiments for Holidays like this Tinsel one that April used.  And she always ROCKS the Ranger and we all know how great the Distress Inks and stains go well with kraft.

Products used:

Core: Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions, Core Tags
Stampendous Products: Boss Gloss, Shabby Pink Pastel Embossing Enamel, Glitter, Cling Poinsettia Background stamp, & Cling Tinsel Tangle Stamp
Queen & Co., Twinkle Goosebumps, Twinkle Motifs, Pearls

* Tinsel tip 1: I sanded over the embossed words just a little, and then I stained them with Ranger’s Distress Stain. I gently wiped the excess stain off with a paper towel and repeated the process once more to darken the color. As you can see from this layout, the Kraft-Core from the Nostaglia line and the Seasonal Impressions core’dinate perfectly!

* Tinsel tip 2: I used a damp paint brush to apply Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions cardstock and then I quickly dropped some fine snow white glitter from Stampendous all over it. It dries in no time flat and then you have super sparkly embossed cardstock!

And just one more close up for you to get all this goodness :)

Especially our Core Tags..they ROCK!

Get that Helmar and Cricut ready to go!

Design Team Member Andrea Amu  has a gorgeous design for us today that  is perfect for your Thanksgiving decor.

Interested in seeing more of this?  Keep Readin!

Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea: I made some Thanksgiving Decor showcasing the beautiful Core’dinations cardstock all held together perfectly with Helmar Adhesives! All of my cuts were done using the Thanksgiving Cricut cartridge. I cut the pilgrims out at 5 3/4″ each, using Signature Series Graphic 45 Core cardstock in Photogenic and Kraft and green Core from the Tim Holtz Adirondack collection. I also cut out the pumpkin design at 2″, again using some orange Core from the Adirondack collection. That beautiful embossed word collage background is some of the new Tim Holtz collection Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions line! It’s the most wonderful backdrop for this Autumnal framed decor.

The Helmar black ZapDots 3D foam squares were great to use to add dimension to layered ares of my pilgrim and pumpkin cuts.

I love the performance of the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive! This was my first time using this glue and it won’t be my last. Seriously, where has this been all my life? It is a must have for paper crafting. Here I used it to adhere most of my layers together, to attach the ribbon to my embossed cardstock base and to apply the Stampendous Vintage Champagne Glass glitter to the centers of the Petaloo mulberry flowers. After the glue and glitter quickly dries, I applied pearl accents from Queen&Co. to each center to finish off this seasonal project.

Helmar +Petaloo Flowers+ Stampendous Glitter = Happiness!
