Tracy Gruber has such a great idea for a Spring card for us today! Silhouettes make beautiful home decor so why not use them on a card? The Black Magic
for the silhouette against our Core Essentials Pastels
really pops and is a great alternative to flowers or stamping. Don’t forget to sand and distress!
Cut the silhouette image from the A Child’s Year Cricut cartridge at 3 1/4″ out of the Black Magic Cardstock
. Then, use the Sand It Gadget to sand the edges. Cut the light purple rectangle from the Core Essentials Pastels Pack
and emboss with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder. Sand over the embossed part with the Sand It Gadget. Next emboss a piece of the light green card stock, also from the Core Essentials Pastels Pack
, with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder and sand with the Sand It Gadget. Finally, distress the edges of a piece of lime green card stock from the Core Essentials Brights Pack
with the Tim Holtz Edge Distresser. Attach all of the layers together and adhere the silhouette die cut with foam squares. Tie the black bow around the top using May Arts twine. For the sentiment piece, cut a circle using a Spellbinder’s Standard Circle Small die out of the 110lb Smooth Cardstock
. Stamp the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Ava Gavloski here with a graduation card using tons of technique! I am excited to share this card for my niece who will be graduating and the school colors are red, white and black.
Step 1: Die cut a few labels from Spellbinders, emboss, ink and you have a quick multi-layered card.
Step 2: Tearing Core’dinations Cardstock for a distressed edge is my favorite technique. Here I used Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection, Fire Brick Red Cardstock.
Step 3: I Heat embossed a sentiment in black ink and stamped my star’s in Red, Clearsnap Colorbox Ink.
Step 4: Layer the label die cuts with foam squares from Tombow, add some rhinestones and a bow and you are done!

And next up, a Mother’s Day layout from Mary Pat Siehl:
I love using the Core Impressions! It makes the most beautiful background paper.
1.) Sand the cardstock heavily around the edges. Keeping the phot0s next to each other allowed me to show off the cool design of the BasicGrey Core Impressions
3.) Then, dry emboss pink Core Essentials cardstock using a Darice embossing folder and lightly sand it. Add some embellishments and a small splash of pattern paper to tie all the spring colors together.

for more ideas and a video on Corrugating.
Cut files from cardstock using Silhouettte Portrait. Use paper crimper on roofs and sand using Sand It Gadget. Emboss main sections of bird houses using the button box embossing folder, sand using Sand It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy.
Assemble each bird house, thread ribbon through roof and glue roof in position. Roll piece of Core cardstock tightly to make peg for perch and place in position, to finish.

Today we have some cute Easter bunny cards for you from Kate Nolan Denham:
I am totally loving Core’dinations brand new Core Basics 110lb Cardstock! It is the perfect smooth cardstock for stamping. Today I am sharing two new Easter cards. Each card has some lovely bunnies stamped onto the 110lb Cardstock.
I stamped all the bunnies using Quick Quotes Chalk Ink. The pretty stamped images totally pop on the 110lb Cardstock.
Each card also uses the pretty Pastels Collection. By embossing and sanding the Pastels, I added just the perfect touch of texture to my simple Easter cards.
