Helmar Day Two…It’s Magical Don’t You Think?

Like Black Magical?! Yep, that’s  a real phrase ’round here at Core’dinations.

We are here with Helmar this week and couldn’t be more excited! We have gorgeous projects all week long for you.

Make sure you say “hi” from us over on the Helmar Facebook page AND they have some awesome boards over on Pinterest, too!  And…you know how it goes here… comment here on the Core blog all week long for a chance to WIN some FAB Core’dinations goodies all for yourself. Comment every day for more chances to win!!! And, of course…check in over at the Helmar Blog for more inspiration.

Today we have Designer Shaunte Wadley creating for us using one of our favorites, Black Magic Cardstock. Get out that Sand it Set because sanding Black Magic is F-U-N!

Here is a little bit about  this layout from Shaunte: ” I used Black Magic for everything but the journaling and the Flowers. Those are Whitewash (journaling) and Core Essentials (flowers.) I think it is pretty cool how well the colors matched between collections.
The title letters were a fun technique!  I distressed them–the letters were too narrow for pop-dots–I would have had to cut them down a lot,  so the Liquid Scrap Dots worked great! The end result looks like crumpled chipboard because of the dimension the Scrap Dots gave the letters.
I used the 450 Quick Dry adhesive as a base for glitter to stick to, to give a sort-of custom brad look to my side border on the photo.

Brilliant! Enjoy!

With only a few days left to Halloween we thought we would share some very treats for you!

And when we say treats, we of course mean festive Halloween tags :) Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post for more of these fun and festive Halloween inspired tags. One for each day of the month of October.

Glitter Silk, Black Magic, Core Tags…you name it Designer Leica Forrest used it for her Halloween Daily Fun box of tags. I don’t know about you but this is my favorite time of year!

So for the next few days we will be showing you bits and pieces of these fun tags Leica created.

See the purple Glitter Silk tag on the left?! Don’t be afraid to use those rubons on your Glitter Silk (the green swirls under the pumpkings). They go on smooth and don’t rub off.

And how about that Fiskars paper crimper?  Oh yes!

We looove to crimp here and it looks great on tags, too!

Countdown to Halloween!

So here are a few close-ups and shots for you. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

Look at all that Glitter Silk! And Leica tore the top of the tag with the Black Magic to reveal the green core and embossed with the spiderweb. LOVE that idea of tearing the top of the tag versus the bottom.

We will be back with more of these tags tomorrow!

yes, MORE Halloween projects!
