We are celebrating color again today with one of the most classic color combinations:  Black, White and Red.  And it just so happens that some of our lines are just perfect for this combo!

First up is a layout from Design Team Member Kim Moreno featuring some Black Magic and Core Essentials Cardstock.

For this layout Kim tore the edge of each of the “frames” used around the photos and sanded the Core Impressions cardstock to reveal the stars. She also used her Scor-Pal to  score  the lines across the bottom and top,then punched and sanded a border to adhere below the ribbon. Remember to check out our videos here for more information on scoring.

And if you love Black and White you have to check out our NEW Jenni BowlinCore Amour collection. You are going to love this line!!! And if you take a hard look at this card from Design Team Member Debbie Standard, you may be able to figure out who we are doing our next blog swap with next month. ;)

And another project from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Core Amour Onyx is a staple in Design Team Member Debbie Standard’s work. She always creates such beautiful projects with this line.

We will start off from a gorgeous layout from Design Team member Cari Locken featuring an awesome mix of our different collections. She included the Core Amour Onyx Collection, Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions, Vintage and Core Jenni Bowlin Impressions.

Here is a close-up of how Cari cut the Jenni Bowlin letters from the alpha cardstock and raised them with the Helmar Zap dots:

Next up Design team member Sarah Hodginkson has some super cute invites with Helmar Zap dots, tape runner and SRM STickers and Core Essentials Cardstock:

A super cool layout from Design Team Member Hera Frei (even thought it’s about getting stuck in a Hurricane!). Hera adhered the clouds in various layers with Helmar Zap dots and used her Helmar Tape Runner. Also Hera used the  Core Impressions for the clouds. SO easy…just punch them out and they are embossed and ready to go!

And a card from Design Team member Ellen Sosnoski using some, yep! You guessed it…Helmar Zap dots on the sentiment and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for the tag and ribbon (also a mix of Vintage Cardstock and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions):
