Mary Pat here with you today. I have an easy New Year’s Card for you today using some of my favorite Core cardstock – Chalk Core and Glitter Silk! You can’t go wrong with a combination like that!
For my card I started with the Chalk Core and embossed it using an embossing folder. I then lightly sanded it. I then found an image from the internet and traced it on my Glitter Silk and cut it out. I then used the Core Basics Vellum and embossed my sentiment using embossing powder. To finalize things I added some pearls in matching colors. Very quick and easy. You can make several of these to send to friends and family!
Happy New Year Card Supplies:
- Core’dinations Cardstock – Chalk Core, Glitter Silk, Core Basics Vellum
- Sand it Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Paper Smooches Stamps
- Sizzix Embossing Folder
- Embossing Powder
- Doodlebug Pearls
I made this video demonstrating the techniques of embossing (both dry and heat), and sanding.

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.
Airbrushed Christmas Card Supplies:
- Core’dinations Basics A2 Kraft Card (and envelope)
- Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered
- Core’dinations Basics 6×6 White 80lb Smooth Cardstock
- Stampendous Stamps, Tis The Season
- Dreamweaver Metal Stencil, Poinsetta
- Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool
- Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Markers
- Ink – VersaFine
- Embossing Powder – Mark Enterprises
- Mist – Heidi Swapp
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!
Thanksgiving Card by Mary Pat
Hi Everyone! Mary Pat here with you today and with the holidays fast approaching I have a great idea for a Clean and Simple Thanksgiving Day card that is so easy that you will want to mass produce these to send to everyone on your Friends and Family list!
Thanksgiving card supplies:
- Core’dinations Chocolate Box
- Tim Holtz Shattered Collection
- Sand it Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Simon Says Stamps
For my card I broke out some of the yummy Chocolate Box collection and used the Cherry Cordial. I then scored and sanded my edges. I then used a digi cut file from the Silhouette store and cut out the flower. I backed the negative space with the Tim Holtz Shattered collection. Finally I stamped my sentiment using the back of the Cherry Cordial.
Here is a video on how this card came about:
Thanks so much for joining me. Hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!

We are here with our Summer Brights Challenge!
Every month we challenge our designers to try new things. It might be a collection pack, techniques…something different just to get those creative juices flowing. So for July, we challenged our designers to use the Brights Collection pack and to do some fussy cutting for some added interest.
The Brights collection pack is the PERFECT color palette for all your summer layouts and projects! Don’t be afraid of those bright colors..embrace them!
First up we have Designer Shaunte Wadley. She created a card trio for us today using Brights, David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system, Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, Core Couture, & Vintage Cardstock.
Here is a shot of some of the Core Couture glitter cardstock. SWOOOOOOOOON! Dies are from Lifestyle Crafts.
And I love how Designer Vivian Keh used the purples in this layout. The possiblities are endless with what you can do with a bright color palette. Add a op of yellow and that gorgeous fussy cutting of her stamps and you have the perfect layout!
And nothing is cuter than a swimming doggie Blues and yellows are the perfect summer colors!
Don’t want to stamp on the textured side? Flip it over!
And Suzanna Lee created a layout focusing on the primary colors found in the Brights Collection pack. And, not to mention, this yogurt place is awesome! You pick your own ice cream and toppings and then they weigh it for you. You gotta be careful though….it adds up! LOL! Tone on tone embossing and die cuts with jsut the perfect touch of sanding. LOVE IT!
