Today I have two cards using our Core Basics line. The Vellum and  110 lb Smooth White cardstock are great for stamping.  And even though the Kraft and Black cardstocks are not sandable, they still look great embossed, scored and punched!

Quick and Easy 5 and 10 Minute Cards

Jennifer Edwardson here with you to share some quick and easy cards you can make in under 10 minutes! Sometimes you just need a quick card …. you know when you have the gift but forgot the card  or you just want to get one in the mail fast? These are a few ideas that are super easy, super cute and ready for any sentiment you might need.
  I added a Step 2 layer that coordinated and gently sanded the top off the show the lighter color inner core.  I embossed a couple of butterfly die cuts and sanded them to show the purple core but only adhered them  to the card in the center so they look like they’re ‘flying’ ….. a few adhesive backed pearls and a sentment and this was done in under 10 minutes !!!

 

5 MINUTE CARD ALERT !!  This one was even faster. Again I went with a polka dot base but chose kraft instead.  I adhered (3) of the pre-embossed envelope seals and raised them using 3D foam and added a ‘miss you’ sentiment sticker to the middle – DONE !!  Cute and quick – love that !!

Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion  here to share some Clean and Simple Spring Cards with you. These cards are so beautiful and yet so simple!!

Clean and Simple Spring Cards

To make these cards, I used this Silhouette Cut. Then I used all different colors from the Gemstones Pack, Green Spotted Core, Whitewash Core, and the 110 lb White Core. The best way I have found to make a bunch of cards is to use the cut on several different colors but only one color at a time and then mix and match the colors.

I just love sanding the tips of the Whitewash Core. The color shows through so vividly.

Clean and Simple Card 3 by Every Day is an Occasion

I used the Green Spotted Core for the leaves. It is really fun to sand and really gives the card that pop.

Envelopes and liners by Every Day is an Occasion

I made envelopes and liners with each card. I used a Pastels, 110 lb White Core, and this Silhouette Cut to make envelopes and liners.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my Clean and Simple Spring Cards!

Who is ready for Spring? We are!

Ava  here today to share some Spring cards with you today. Let’s start with a Clean and Simple card.  With our pre-embossed cardstock, cards come together very quickly!
The Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions is a great pack of paper to create cards with.  Find the pre-printed sentiment on the cardstock sheet, size it to the greeting card size and you can make a quick card without touching any ink.
 Sand lightly with your Sand it Gadget and clean your sentiment using the Dust Buddy.
Punch out an embellishment using your Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Silhouette and Embossing punch, SE-E02 Heart Butterfly and add a bit of ribbon. I punched my butterfly from the Spotted Collection, Jillian Vavavoom color.

Ava  again here to share with you another  Spring card.  Spring brings thoughts of new buds and greenery and that is the sign we all look for to indicate the beginning of a wonderful time of year.  My CAS card has been embossed using the Couture Creations embossing folderfrom the Fresh & Fun collection, Magical and Sizzix Flourish folder.

Gather some supplies and this CAS card will come together quickly.

 I used Core Essentials Pastels Collection pack for this card.  Embossed and lightly sanded with my Sand it Gadget. Gently dust off my sanded cardstock with my Dust Buddy and you will reveal the light tones of the inner core.
Stamp your sentiment and image onto a die cut label, adhere with some Helmar’s Zap Dots onto the card to give some dimension to your card.  Embellish with some rhinestones and ribbon and your CAS card is ready to go.

DIY Simple and Elegant …we promise!

Hello, everyone!! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another project with you! Today, I have what I like to call “FairyWare”….a lot like “silverware”, but for fairies. My son and daughter love Disney’s fairy movies, so that is where this inspiration came from.  This idea is perfect for ANY kind of party…birthday…holidays and more!

FAIRYWARE

Fairy silverwareThis is simple simple simple. All I did was take wooden silverware and decorate it with David Tutera’s beautiful collections, the butterflies and borders pack. It is as simple as hot gluing them onto the silverware. Then I took a plastic bottle my kids had left over from their milk, took the wrapper off, washed it out and adhered David Tutera’s butterflies and white lattice background. This set, unfortunately for my kids, had to be shipped off to HSN, but we will surely be making some more “fairyware” soon! Have a crafty day! 

 

Next up I have a Clean And Simple card to share with you. This card was created using David Tutera’s line which is made from Coredinations Cardstock, just in case you didn’t know. I love all different styles of card making, but with two small kids, lately I have been sticking with CAS. I think it is important to Thank people with a handwritten note. Today it is so easy to send a text message or email thanking someone, which I do, but my favorite is a handmade card.

Keep in mind this can be applied to invitations…Christmas cards..you name it! 

Thank you card

 

Sometimes I feel so rushed to make cards or I’ll make one and the person doesn’t seem to appreciate it the way I thought they would and then I feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life making a card they really don’t care about. This card solves both of those problems. David’s line is quick and simple. He has it laid out for you. Basically, you supply the adhesive and it takes 5 minutes  to make the card. I used David’s white card base, flower pack and sentiments. All found here on his page exclusive ot our website.  Quick. Simple. Fabulous! Have a crafty day!

And for this card Lydia uses all her scraps! Notice the yellow stars she randomly adhered over the embossed image?  They are the punched stars from the yellow strip.
