Summer Layouts and more with Tracy Gruber

Happy Wednesday! We hope you are enjoying your summer so far and today we want to start out with a super summery layout from Design Team Member Tracy Gruber.  I always struggle with white as a base for my layouts but Tracy makes it looks so easy! Plus…all  that embossing just makes me happy. :)

Nothing says summer like the Core’dinations Brights Card Stock paper pad!  The colors in this collection match the colors of the sunset almost perfectly.  I used a couple of different techniques on this layout including tearing, embossing, and sanding.  I also used Distress Inks and a water brush to make the water-colored looking circles.

Turtley Awesome
I love to combine Core’dinations cardstock with stamps, especially when I am creating a “scene” on my card.  The tan card stock is perfect for sand, because when you tear it, it looks just like a beach!  I also used a piece of light blue card stock, which I embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and then sanded with the Sand It Gadget.  It makes a perfect sky!

God Bless Card
 
One of my favorite types of Core’dinations paper is the Core Couture Glitter.  Why? Because I love glitter and this card stock has plenty of it!  I used the black Core Couture Glitter card stock as the background, along with a Core Tag to stamp the sentiment on.  I used a Cuttlebug die to cut out the 3-D flowers from the Core’dinations Pastels, Brights, and Darks paper pads.  I then sanded the edges of them to add some texture.
