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!

And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira.

For this layout, I used the Cling Decorative Grate CRR145 stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it onto Snowflake core, stamping the image twice with each inking, creating one dark image and one lighter image. I trimmed the images from the cardstock and layered two light and one dark image onto a piece of whitewash cardstock. Lines were scored around the stamped layers creating a “window pane” type of effect.

The trio of rosettes was created by punching large scalloped circles, sanding them and tearing them in a spiral shape, then twisting them around the end of a stylus and adhering with a glue dot. A turquoise pearl from Queen&Co. was used in the center of each rosette to mimic the baby’s headband in the photo.

I created the banner by punching a border along the edge of a strip of Chocolate Box cardstock then trimming 1 inch strips up the border design. Alphabet stickers were added and the pieces were adhered over bakers twine. Journaling was done on a lightly sanded piece of Whitewash using a typewriter. I used a pink die cut square layer that I cute from a die from Lifestyle Crafts and the cardstock is from the 6×6 Spotted collection.

And a close up of those gorgeous flowers!!! Add some May Arts Ribbon and other details and you have a great layout.

And of course…our blog! And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. She created the most beautiful card for us today!

Where do we start?  Shaunte started with a Tim Holtz Kraft-Core cardbase that she embossed and sanded.  And Core Tags? Yes, Please!!! (keep reading for more details on those ;) )

Did you know that with our Core Tags you can pop out the silver grommet?  So..if you want to emboss it…PERFECT! Or if you want to flip your tag over and use the smooth side to stamp…YOU CAN! And if you are working with some FAB-u-Lous embossing powders like we are from Stampendous then you are in luck. OH! And don’t forget the beautiful Stampendous sentiment stamp using the Cling Flower Path stamp:

And another gorgeous detail….
