Hi there! Suzanna here to share with you a thank you card today. I don’t know about you but I am always looking for a card to say thanks! This design could easily be used for any sentiment.

Supplies:

This was a very simple card to create with some Core’dinations cardstock from my left overs, a David Tutera card base from Step 1, a die, an embossing folder and some twine!

Create a visually pleasing look with triangles, wrap it up with twine to really capture your interest and voila! You’re finished!

I used “thank you” as my sentiment but really, as generic as triangles are, anything could go here!

DIY Cards with Smooth Core Tags

Hi there Core fans! Suzanna here to share with you a couple of cards I created using smooth Core Tags.

CoreTagCard2_Love_SuzannaLee

Supplies:

The sentiment is stamped on the tag and becomes the main focus of the card. The smooth tags are perfect for stamping and the 300gsm paper ensures that the tags don’t curl.

Next up, a card featuring a small, white circle tag. Can you tell where it is?

CoreTagCard_Hello_SuzannaLee

Supplies:

Yes, there is a Core Tag there! It’s covert; under a cover of Gelatos, nestled in the heart of the sun rays! The hole of the circle tag is hiding under the bottom of the ‘o’. Again, a smooth Core Tag, and it withheld the water from my waterbrush used to blend the Gelato.

“Opening Day” Layout with Core Tags

I love the Core Tags. They are so much fun. I love making them the center of my layout as well as turning them into embellishments for my page. In this layout I chose to use 3 tags. I used a medium white Core Tag as well as 2 tags from the Darks collection. One was the perfect place to write my title. This tag is a focal point on the layout and the other two I used them embellishments on my layout.

Hello, Ava here  to welcome you to the blog today.  I have a non-traditional colored card to share with you for the end of the summer season. Our Glitter Silk is GREAT for cards because the backside is smooth white so when it’s folded, you can still personalize the inside.

Supplies:
Step 1.  Start with making your card base at 6×6 and trim the front panel of the card back about 2 inches.
Step 2.  Emboss, sand cardstock, mat and adhere both pieces to card base.
Step 3.  Stamp image, spray water, blend ink, trim cardstock, mat image panel with purple and black mats.  Adhere panel to card.
Step 4.  Stamp sentiment onto cardstock, trim, distress edges and adhere sentiment onto card.
Step 5.  Heat set I-rock jewels to stamped card panel and adhere bow to card.
