CAS Cards with Graphic 45 Signature Series

I love all the Core’dinations collections but one of my favorites is the Graphic 45 Signature Series. The colors are just so rich and yummy and the match perfectly to the Graphic 45 pattern papers. For my projects I made a feminine and masculine card to show the versatility of our cardstock and their patterned papers.

Feminine Sentiment Card

Feminine Sentiment Card Supplies:

For this card I used the Place in Time collection. For my Cardstock I used the Signature Series Lights collection. I layered my cardstock and embossed the Robin’s Egg using a Darice embossing folder and then layered my pattern paper on top. For my sentiment I used some Paper Smooches dies and stamps.

Masculine Birthday Card

For my masculine card I used the Graphic 45 Good ol Sports collection along with my Core’dinations Signature Series Darks. I once again, I layered my cardstock and used the tearing technique at the botton of the cardstock. I then punched circles of the pattern paper and layered them on the card.

An A-Maize-ing Day Card

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall card with you today!

An A-Maize-ing Day Card Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all of the pieces that create the harvest corn from the SVGCuts.com Enchanted Autumn SVG kit.  I’m using Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to create all of the visible layers.  I’m also using the 6×6 sized cardstock which fits perfectly on a mat for most die cut machines.  I like to use a Cricut mat with my Silhouette Cameo but it will fit on a Cameo mat too.

Step 2.  After the corn is cut out, glue the pieces together.  I resized my pieces to fit a standard A2 card, so they easily fit through the Xyron 3″ Sticker maker.

Step 3.  For dimension, use foam pop dots between some of the layers!

Step 4.  I decided to cut a piece of Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to cover the top of the Core’dinations A2 Kraft Cards I’m using.  I also cut another piece for my embossed sentiment.

Step 5.  Using Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set, I stamped onto the Core’dinations cardstock with Versamark and then heat embossed the saying with fine gold embossing powder.

Step 6. Before I was finished I cut a few more strips of paper and glued them down to add more focus to the sentiment.  After tying on some twine, adding a button and some adhesive gems, the card was complete.  Well, almost.  I then decided to use a corner rounding paper punch and round all of the corners of the card.  Ta da!  All done!

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Fall Fox Card with Core Tag

Hi Everyone,

Mary Pat here with you today bringing you a super fun card using Core’dinations cardstock and Core Tags.  I love tags!  Tags can be used in so many more ways other than your typical gift tag.  Today I use a Core Tag as the center focal point for my card.

DIY Acorn Card & Box

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall acorn box and card with you today.  What a fun way to say hello, thank you or happy fall to that special friend, co-worker or teacher!

Acorn-card-Coredinations

Acorn Card and Box Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D acorn box and card from Core’dinations Neutrals cardstock and Core Basics white.  These are the pieces that make up the box.

Step 2. Emboss the top of the acorn, the stem and the tan square piece that goes on the card using the Darice basket weave background embossing folder.  The leaf is embossed with the Darice crackle embossing folder.  After embossing, the sanding really brings out the texture.  So cool!

This card is just three simple pieces!  YAY to that!

Step 3. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside of the card and stamp it with a stamp from the Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set.  I thought this sentiment I created was perfect for this card!

Black Magic Birthday Card

Celebrate your next Birthday with a Core’dinations Black Magic card. With some simple sanding and heat embossing you can make it look just like chalkboard!

Black Magic Birthday Card Supplies:

BM cu3

Step 1.   Begin by sanding the Black Magic cardstock first. It’s important you sand BEFORE you stamp and wipe dust with Dust Buddy. Removing excess sand will help the clear ink pad stamp clearly to ensure a crisp image when you emboss.

BM cu2

Step 2. Emboss with Tim Holtz & Ranger heat embossing powder. I like to use my scraps because sometimes it takes a few tries to get a good image.

Step 3. Add layers of Glitter Silk and more Black Magic along with embellishments.
