Today we have some cards from David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system from one of our Designers …Jennifer Edwardson! If you love these cards make sure you check out her blog here
! First up Jennifer mixed and match our Core’dinations Whitewash with a David Tutera Cardbase:
I love the look of ribbon folded paper and have done it before in different ways but I wanted to make a sweet and simple card using the White Wash and a border punch (LOVE the White Wash) …..
I started with a white A2 (4.25 x 5.5″) card base from the David Tutera Celebrate card making system. I cut (4) 2 x 5 1/2″ pieces of white wash and then ran each piece through the same border punch. I lightly sanded the top of each piece to see the colors show through and then started to layer them onto my card base.
I ran a strip of double sided tape along the top of each piece and adhered that part down first, starting at the bottom of the base and working up. Then I put 3D foam under the bottom punched edge to raise it off the base. I layered each one on top of the other and then wrapped some ribbon at the edge of the top piece. I stamped a thank you sentiment on the top right corner to finish it off ….. Super simple but super sweet - easy to use for any occasion !!

And another card from Designer Jennifer Edwardson:
I love the look of chevron on just about anything so I decided to create this quick and easy card with a chevron theme.
I started with an A2 white card base. I chose a piece of blue cardstock from the A2 Bulk Sheets pkg and ran it through my Big Shot using a Chevron embossing folder. I lightly sanded off the top to show the pattern and then started to layer (5) pieces from the A2 Border Strips pkg. They were a bit long as I turned the card to open vertically, so I just snipped the ends of the strips off. I chose the layered ‘thank you’ from the ‘Thanks 1 Sentiments’ sheets to finish it off …. add the included envelope and it’s good to go !!

Designing with Melissa Oliveira today! Here is a little bit about this cute layout from Melissa:
The graphic design of the Pink Paislee Core Impressions made a great home for a grid style layout. AND chevrons are all the rage these days! Keeping the layout clean and simple with just a bit of sanding and embossing allows the little details like the punched butterflies, sanded edges and machine stitched border shine through.
And a close up…Core’dinations is just so great. Sand some, emboss some, use your Fiskars Paper Crimper like Melissa did here with the yellow strip …so many textures so little time! And the added Queen & Co. bling on the butterflies is the perfect touch!
Hope you had a GREAT weekend! We are back to our regularly scheduled blog posts. Between Holidays, flu, getting ready for CHA, Hard Core Crop prizes and more…we are busy busy!
Today we have Guest Designer Leeann Pearce with us again! Leeann is the queen of cool. Her layouts are always so awesome with layers and layers of texture and this color combo is just a classic. The gray tones that Leeann pairs together are just perfect and it’s so easy with Core’dinations Cardstock since everything “core’dinates”!
Here is a little bit about this layout from the lovely Leeann herself:
Hello and Happy New Year Core fan… Today I am sharing a quick page. I am a lover of solid colours and shapes. I created a chevron background by cutting 3” x 3” squares into triangles. I wanted to add just small pops of colour as you can see. I did add some texture to the bright yellow triangle using my embossing folder and Sizzix Big Shotz machine. I used a Core tag and have this hiding in small paper bag.
