Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion  here to share a Mother’s Day Project with you! I LOVE coupon booklets and so I thought it would be fun for my kids to give one to each of their Grandmothers with their present.

Mother’s Day Coupons

Children's Gift for Mother's Day by Every Day is an Occasion

To make these Mother’s Day Coupons I used my favorite 8 1/2 x 11 in. 110lb White Core’dinations cardstock and this print and cut design from the Silhouette Online Store.

Children's Activity for Mother's Day

My kids and I had so much fun thinking of different coupon ideas. I had fun hearing what they had to say like this one, “Good for one trip to the Candy Store.” I said, ” Now we need to think about what your Grandmothers are going to like.”  My daughter said, ” Oh my Grandma LOVES candy!”

To give the front cover of the Mother’s Day Coupons an aged look, I simple sanded the front cover AFTER I sprayed it. Since I printed onto 110 lb White Core, when I sanded the white came through and gave the pot an aged look which I thought was fun. We hope that our Grandmothers will enjoy this coupon book!

Mary Pat Siehl is sharing a fun Easter themed card for us today featuring some stamping and our BRAND NEW 110 cardstock. But guess what? She isn’t just stamping on it, she embosses it and stamps on her Core Essentials, too!
1.  Start with Core 110 lb smooth cardstock and emboss it using a Darice embossing folder.
2. Stamp  bunny and carrot on 110lb Smooth Cardstock and color with Spectrum Noir Markers.
TIP: Want that sanded look from your ColorCore Cardstock on stamped images?   Sand your cardstock first using your Sand it Gadget from Core’dinations.

Clean the surface of your paper and then stamp your image. Making sure you clean your surface with a Dust buddy is SO important! Your image will stamp much much cleaner!

I stamped my eggs and then fussy cut them out.  Now they have a bit of a soft distress feel to them even though they were in the bright collection! Last but not least I cut some grass out using the Gemstone collection and my Silhouette and here is what I came up with!

Spring has sprung!

Hi Everyone! Tracy Gruber here! Hopefully it’s starting to feel like spring where you are!  I decided to create my own beautiful flowers out of Core’dinations card stock to get me in the mood for spring and summer.  Start out by cutting the hydrangea from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge at 4 inches.  Next, emboss a piece of White Wash card stock with the Cloudy Sky embossing folder from Darice.  I de-embossed it and sanded it so the clouds stayed white and the sky became blue.  Then, tear two strips of brown card stock to create the “dirt” at the bottom on the card.  Use the Fiskar’s grass border punch and Kraft Core card stock to create the grass that is behind the dirt.  Die cut the clouds from white card stock and stamp the sentiment on the medium cloud.  Adhere everything together for a fun card!

I love to create 3D flowers with my Core card stock.  After a little sanding, they start to look real!  Die cut the flowers using the Spellbinder’s Rose Creations die.  Bend each flower petal and then sand each one with the Sand It Gadget.  I like to attach each flower layer together with a brad, but you could use whatever you want. For the card base, layer together a piece of yellow and dark purple card stock.  Sand the purple card stock to give it a distress look.  Attach a white Core Tag to the card base and stamp the sentiment.  Lastly, attach each flower and the leaves onto the card front.
Supplies:
-Tim Holtz Distress Collection
-Tim Holtz Shattered Kraft Core
-Darks Card Stock
-Kraft Core Card Stock
-Lights Card Stock
-Neutrals Card Stock
-Core Tags
-Sand It Gadget
-Dust Buddy
- Lawn Fawn Jessie’s ABC’s stamp set

The ombre trend is hot right now and I love to use my Core card stock to create ombre backgrounds.  We have been having gorgeous sunsets lately, so I was inspired to create a card with a sunset that looks like it’s on fire!  I tore strips of red, orange, and yellow card stock and attached them to a white card base.  I die cut the sky line with a Memory Box die and used Glitter Silk for the buildings windows.  The windows look like they are really lit up because of all of the sparkle from the Glitter Silk card stock!  I used the speech bubble die from Simon Says Stamp and stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment on it.
Supplies:
-Tim Holtz Distress Collection
-Vintage Card Stock
-Darks Card Stock
-Brights Card Stock
-Glitter Silk card stock
-Neutrals Card Stock
110 lb Smooth Cardstock
