Happy New Year Cards

Wishing someone a Happy New Year is such a great way to kick off the year! Positive thoughts for a positive start to the new year!

Kate here today to share two bright and happy New Year’s cards I made using Core’dination Cardstock.

Kicking it off with a BRIGHT card.  The 4.5″ x 6″ card base and all brightly colored layers were made from the Core Essentials Bright Collection.  I embossed the yellow layer with a chevron embossing folder by Darice.  While embossing, I placed a cardstock shim on top of the plate sandwich. When I ran  this through my Big Shot, the embossing cut through the paper just where the shim was placed.  
Supplies:
Darice Chevron Embossing Folder
Die-namics Alpha Dies
Xyron Adhesives
This picture perfect card whipped up in no time at all!  The 4.5″ x 6″ card base is Core’dinations Tulip Jillian Dot. I sanded the little dots with my Sand It Gadget.  The sentiment is printed on a scrap piece of Core’dinations Cardstock (pretty sure it is in the Neutral Collection).  Once printed, I tore the paper and added a bit of Chalking Ink to match the Tulip colored base.  
Supplies:
Core’dinations Jillian Dot Collection
Core’dinations 6″x 6″ Glitter Silk Collection
Core’dinations Smooth Stamping Paper
Unity Stamp Co.
Memento Ink
Quick Quotes Chalking Ink

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year! ~Kate

From the Core’dinations Cardstock family we wish you the merriest of Christmases! Be safe and happy today. Enjoy your friends and families on this blessed day!

But of course we have some inspiration for you from Designer Suzanna Lee:

R U Merry?  Suzanna here to share with you a card that will be sure to get your recipient ready for the festivities ahead!

Black Magic as a card base is a fantastic way to create a black background for your card yet have a colored cardstock on the inside for writing that important message. Sanded Seasonal Impressions is just like having a patterned paper for the the second layer of your background.

Suzanna_DecMonthly_Card_Close

Aren’t the layers of that tree fun? Just pleat some paper a little haphazardly and cut in a triangular shape. Back with a slightly darker shade and adorn with some May Arts garland and sequins ornaments! The tree trunk and white lace are also from May Arts. No Christmas tree is complete without presents underneath so just stamp on some of the amazing 110 pound white cardstock, handcolor and fussy cut for your gifting pleasures.

Top the tree with a Glitter star and hang a banner to convery your greeting!

How about a layout?

Kate was totally going for clean lines designed with neutral and earthy tones on this layout today to pull off a masculine feel. Such an easy thing to do with all the great Core’dinations Cardstock Colors!     The vertical title work really move your eye around as well.

Kate layered and sewed the cardstock matted photos on a piece of Kraft-Core Shattered Collection. Then tore the bottom off of the Kraft-Core letting lots of the core show. Isn’t that such a simple, yet fantastic effect?  To add some texture to the CoreTags, I crinkled, sanded and dusted them.  I think added jounaling to one and date stamps to the other.

And how about another card from Design Team Member Heather Kaesgan? A super cute card using some Marvy Uchida punches and Glitter Silk, Core Couture, Core Essentials and a Darice embossing folder for the buttons. What a great mix don you think? Love how the ribbon that she created with the punches pops off the top a bit. Oh of cours..Tombow adhesive!

Marvy Embossing Punches

Okay, so when we first saw these punches at CHA last year we fell in major love! And that is an understatement.

Marvy Uchida has the most gorgeous punches that emboss AND punch at the SAME time! WOW!  They are called Silhoutte and Embossing craft punches.  So…you know the embossed images look so great sanded with our Core Cardstock. See those red areas?  That is where the embossed area is so you can sand it. So what are you waiting for??? Order yours NOW!

Here are a few projects highlighting these punches. I have to say walk RUN to your favorite retailer and ask them to get some of these. You won’t stop using yours!

These next two cards are from Clare Buswell using the Button Punch and Poppy punch. Keep in mind  for this first one Clare used the Gemstones cardstock so she didn’t sand but take a good look at the dimension JUST from a punch. So cool! Add an SRM Sticker and you are finished. How easy is that?
