St Patty’s Day layout featuring Tim Holtz Shattered Cardstock

So how about a St. Patricks’ Day layout featuring Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Cardstock.

This entire layout is  Shattered cardstock except for: the Core Tags (journaling) Glitter Silk (Shamrocks, title) Core Couture (pennants).  Loving that scoring detail around the edges?  Break out your Scor-Pal. It’s easy and looks GREAT!  Remember to Scor from the back and sand the front for that great detail.

Shaunte used gold ink and rubbed it into the lighter shade of the Shattered cardstock. This detail shot shows the gold color it turned the cardstock, and seeped down into the cracks. I sprayed it with glitter spray too. Never too much bling, right?!!? And love how Shaunte makes these flags with the Queen & Co. washi!!!!

LOVE IT! Hope this inspires you to scrap those St Patty’s day layouts!

It has been a crazy few weeks so we are finally back on track with a Tuesday Tip!

And it’s all about Halloween!

Designer Shaunte Wadley created this gorgeous table topper for us today. Break out those die-cuts and let’s get busy! For this gorgeous piece, Shaunte used Lifestyle Crafts dies.  Check out their Halloween collection here. You will NOT be disappointed! Dies are a great way to cut Core and create your own gorgeous creations.

Core Essentials for the base and the tree.
Vintage Cardstock for the moon, and the bats and the pumpkin/leaves.
Glitter Silk for the purple on the base, and Core Couture for the witch Silhouette.

All that shimmers is…

Our Fabulous Core Couture and Glitter Silk cardstock lines!

Ooooh….ahhhhhh….Shiney!

Did you know that not all of our cardstock has a sandable surface? I know, I know…can you believe it?  But we do have some lines that have a beautiful shimmer and shine to them.  Same GREAT Core…just a little different that if you sand it, that finish will go away BUT you can still cut it, emboss and do all the other great things you do with Core everyday.

Here are some designs from Design Team Member Debbie Standard:

Core Couture

And our Gorgeous Glitter Silk!!!

You will LOVE this…it barely sheds, cuts like butter…embosses beautifully! Take a close look..Debbie embossed it!

And some more Core Couture…as you can see the glitter picks up all sorts of colors. And is beautiful even in black.

Add some May Arts Ribbon and Queen & Co pearls and you have a gorgeous card.

See how it embosses???  LOVE it!

Here on the Core blog this week!

We have  a special treat from Core Teacher Vicki Boutin for you today!

What a way to to show off all the amazing colors and textures of Core’dinations cardstock. Our color families core’dinate in each line so you can mix and match them easily.

Here is a little bit about this layout from Vicki:

“We love St Patrick’s Day around here.  Not for the traditional reasons as much as the fact that it is my son Riley’s birthday!!!  We wear the green, get the Shamrock shakes from McDonalds and enjoy celebrating a “green” birthday.  So when I received a box of new Core’dinations I knew I wanted to put something together for a St Paddy’s Day layout.
I cut out a large shamrock shape for a base.  I then proceeded to punch a bunch of circles from Core Couture , Gemstones, Vintage, Spotted Jillian and Tillie and Core Essentials.  I layered the circles from the bottom of the shamrock up.
(insert close up)
Love how this turned out!!!  I used the back of Tim Holtz Kraft Core and a sheet of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions for the base.
Hope you get into the St Patrick’s Day fun and make something special to commemorate the day!”
