Some More Father’s Day inspiration…

Hi Everyone!  Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them.  And they are very different!  I was inspired this week by two different things.

First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….

There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card.  It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps ;)

And next up I was in my inbox and the daily RSS feed from Scrapbook & Cards Today was there and I found this treat: Folded Shirt Card for Father’s Day!

Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards!   For the original video check out the WRMK blog .

I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.

And  here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.

Pink Paislee Core Impressions

Any old but goodie!

Designer Melissa Oliveria created this layout for us today. Banners never get old, do they?

The cupcake banner was created by embossing and sanding several 1″ strips of Core Essentials cardstock, then trimming a “v” shape at one end of each strip. A punched, sanded Whitewash border was added to each flag before adhering to the layout using foam dots. The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions…just a little sanding goes a long way!

And I just heard that the NEW Design Team is 99.99% finalized. So stay tuned for the announcement!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you ready???

Happy Hump Day!

Today we have some projects from Designer Andrea Amu. As usual Andrea works her Cricut and the Core…so many amazing details so grab that coffee and sit back and enjoy!

Loving all the Spotted and Core Essentials cardstock PLUS..some May Arts ribbon and Imaginisce iRock, too!

And how about some ch-ch-ch-chevron?!  The Core Impressions Pink Paislee Modern Prints collection has tons of great chevron prints. Swooooon! Andrea used the backside of the Chocolate Box and inked it for the first layer and then cut out pieces of the chevron and sanded  every other one, too!  Add a stamped sentiment and you are good to go. Love it!

Ellen here with some Core’dinations tips for you using Black Magic and Chocolate Box collections.

We love these two lines so much AND after seeing everyone at CHA loving them, too, we thought it would be fun to share a layout using both collections.

Scoring, sanding, and embossing are SO much fun! Who needs patterned paper?
