Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today. Recently my niece was over and wanted to watch the Disney movie Cinderella. We managed to find an animated copy of the movie and when the horse drawn carriage showed up her eyes widened with excitement. It was at that moment that I know that I have to make one for her. We are also doing a blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron so I will be featuring some of their lovely products in the post. To make this carriage I came up with a few steps in addition to those that come with the file.
Pumpkin Carriage Supplies:
- Core’dinations Gemstones Pearlescent Finish Cardstock
- Core’dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Darice Foliage Embossing Folder
- Pumpkin Carriage from SVGCUTS Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit
- Sizzix Embossing Folder
- Petaloo Fancy Trims – Taupe
- Petaloo Darjeeling Collection – Darjg Mix
- Petaloo Darjeeling Petites Autumn
- Xyron Tape Runner
- Xyron 5″ Creative Station
- Silhouette Cameo
Step 1. Cut out all your pieces and assemble the carriage, lid, base and wheels. The wheels are actually 12 layers thick so they are really sturdy. I prefer to build my projects out of White Card stock but you can always use whatever cardstock you desire, just make sure it is at least 80 weight paper.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a great day my crafty friends! I hope to see you soon

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D Wooden Crate from Core’dinations Tillie Dot Cardstock and Core’dinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection Cardstock. These are the pieces that make up the box.
Step 2. Emboss the top layer pieces using the Darice Wood Grain embossing folder. I used Core’dinations Tillie Dot cardstock for the main part of the box.
Step 3. After embossing, sand the raised areas. It really brings out the texture!
Step 4. Glue and assemble the pieces.
Step 6. Heat emboss the tag with a stamped sentiment.
Step 7. Here’s a side view of that gorgeous paper! Don’t you love the way it embosses and looks after the Tille Dot is sanded?

Today we have some gorgeous layouts from Debbie Standard!
We had a beautiful day for my mother’s 87th birthday and afterwards while the girls were still dressed up we went around the corner from my house and had them pose in this beautiful field of blue bonnets (Texas is known for their state flower)! My granddaughter was patient with me up to a point and then she spontaneously burst into some random poses – these were my favorite!
1. Sand the BasicGrey Core Impressions and adhere together with Washi tape.
2. Then I cut and matted my photos on a sheet of white and then backed it with a bright blue and attached it.
3. Next, I cut my title and my balloons from a Silhouette die, ran them through my Xyron 250, sanded them lightly and adhered them to my page.
6. Add some Queens & Co. twine for balloon strings.
Step 2: Tearing Core’dinations Cardstock for a distressed edge is my favorite technique. Here I used Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection, Fire Brick Red Cardstock.
Step 3: I Heat embossed a sentiment in black ink and stamped my star’s in Red, Clearsnap Colorbox Ink.
Step 4: Layer the label die cuts with foam squares from Tombow, add some rhinestones and a bow and you are done!

I really love this stuff – it holds up to a lot of media work, as you will see in my stepped out tutorial today.
Step 2: Once the streaks are dry, mist your cardstock with water, then pour or spritz your choice of mists. Spritzing onto a surface pre-moistened with water allows your colors to blend freely and spontaneously with each other.
Step 3: While the surface is wet, unscrew the cap to an intensely hued mist, and tap the color into the puddle. Instead of creating the typical splatter of mist which happens when you work on a dry surface, the colors will move a bit and create a watercolor effect something like Stained Glass.
Step 4: Add some stamping using Distress Inks. Lightly mist your stamping with water to further the feeling you are looking through the softening lens of stained glass.
Step 5: Add die-cuts, text, and other desired embellishments. To complete my organic look, I added my vascular hot glue effects (for which I have many videos available on my youtube channel). To make the die-cuts pop, you can use a marker along the edges – while still wet, blend in the pigment with decoupage medium.
Thanks so much for visiting with me here on the Core blog today!
