We are so excited for this week and trust me when I say our papers are a match made in heaven! But seeing is believing, right? So make sure you stick around all week long for some inpsiration and a giveaway of course!
Make sure you check out the Authentique BLOG for more ideas and a giveaway AND you can find their complete lines of gorgeous papers HERE. Today is all about cards, cards and more cards using the Authentique Be(you)tiful line.
First up Debbie Standard shows us how all you need is some Core Essentials and gorgeous patterned papers to make some quick and easy cards! Love how Debbie mixes the hexagons with other prints using her embossing folders.
Cardstock: Core’dinations Darks Collection
Patterned Paper: Authentique Be(you)tiful collection
This card from Debbie showcases a great way to use those scraps! You can cut out shapes from your Core and save them for another project and use the negative space.

And next up we have Vivian Keh with some more cards…loving the Vintage Cardstock on this first one. Everyone LOVES a gray color palette and the Be(you)tiful is perfect for it! I know gray has become my “go to” neutral.
And a gorgeous close up:
Hemp for cards is a favorite of mine because you can add a soft touch and it’s not too bulky:
See how Core and Authentique match PERFECTLY???
Get out those diec cuts and pop up dots! Just some simple shapes cut out of cardstock, and of course sanded, not only add visual interest but it makes cardmaking easy!

Stamp clouds onto Tillie dot cardstock, fussy cut and adhere to card. Stamp pinwheels, color with Distress Markers, fussy cut and attach to card. Repeat stamp flowers, color with Distress Markers, fussy cut, trim and adhere to card. Fold piece of green Core’dinations cardstock, fringe edge with scissors to create grass effect, emboss using Gridlock embossing folder, sand and adhere to card with foam tabs. Attach baker’s twine, to finish.
And a card from Designer Debbie Standard featuring loads of Core and some of the cool background stamps from Lawn Fawn.
Some Tim Holtz Kraft Core and the sharp backdrops:
and using the interlocking backdrops with some Chocolate Box…loooove the subtle look of this. Debbie added some May Arts ribbon to both of her cards and a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system sentiment. These are GREAT if you don’t have a sentiment stamp that fits your needs.

First up we have Designer Tracy Gruber with a super cute card:
I love my Lawn Fawn stamps, so I was very excited to pair them with Core! I started with the Whitewash paper and embossed it with the Swirls embossing folder. I sanded the de-embossed side, so more of the blue color showed. I then stamped the tree from the Critters in the Forest set twice and kept one piece whole and the other one I cut each other the “sections” apart. I then attached each of the pieces to the whole tree and popped up the bottom with Tombow Foam Tabs to give it dimension. I used the green Core Vintage paper and tore it to create the grass for my scene.
LOOK at all that AMAZING detail!
You came to the right place!

Can you say…paper airplanes? EEEEEK! This Flying By stamp set IS JUST TOOOOOO CUTE! Emboss your Whitewash cardtock with a Darice cloud embossing folder and punch some peep holes with a circle punch in your layout…it really allows those planes to pop off the page and really look like they are flying. Don’t forget to use the Flying By die cuts…makes life so easy! Shaunte always adds the sweetest details like stamping on the Core Couture for the sentiment and the heart in the twine. Just because it has a different finish doesn’t mean you can’ stamp on it.
And don’t be afraid to get out those stamps and use them on your Layouts. Shaunte
Shaunte mixed and matched a bunch of Core on here with her Lawn Fawn Bon Voyage stamps. She sanded the Tim Holtz Kraft Core No. 3, My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions on top of that and then embellished her way to a fabulous layout!
Guess what we have up for grabs for you this week?????

Well…as a cake topper! Jill has some great birthday ideas for you today.
Hi everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another project with you. Today I am sharing the cake topper I made for my son’s birthday. He turned four this year. He loves cooking and baking, so we decided we would make the cake together. He picked out the kind of cake he wanted, the frosting, and of course what he wanted on top of the cake. This summer we have spent a lot of time at our lake cottage. He absolutely loves it up there. One of the highlights for him is to look at all the animals while we are on the pontoon boat. He especially loves it when we find turtles. So this year we decided a turtle themed cake would be fun.
Turtle Themed Birthday Cake
You may notice a random car in the picture…he painted that car and asked for it to be in the picturebecause he wanted to remember he painted that on his birthday.
I love Core’dinations Brights Paper Pack. I use it all.the.time! It is my second go to…my first go to favorite is Core’dinations white in the neutral pack…I know I’m weird! lol
Anyways, the turtles and waves were both made using the Brights pack. So go get yourself some and thank me later:)
Next up I’m sharing a project I made for my mom. I keep making cards for her that she absolutely adores and doesn’t want to throw away…this is where I blush and come up with a solution…..
Card Holder and Scalloped Card
When I first got my Design Team box from Core’dinations, this SUPER CUTE Fancy Pants Core paper was inside. This paper was my mom’s absolute favorite! I knew when her birthday rolled around, what I would be using to create her card! She doesn’t like really fancy things. She is more of a clean and simple gal so I used the backside of the cardstock.
Then when she said she needed a place to put all the cards I was making her, the Tim Holtz Kraft Core paper stuck out to me because on one side it is a kraft color and on the other side it is colored. I think it is so perfect because no matter which side you look at the paper it is beautiful!
Card Base: Fancy Pants Coredinations paper
Ribbon: May Arts
Card Holder: Tim Holtz Kraft Core
For more details on how I created these two projects, come visit me at Every Day is an Occasion.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.
