Hi friends! It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall card with you today!
An A-Maize-ing Day Card Supplies:
- Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock
- Core’dinations A2 Kraft Cards & Envelopes
- SVGCuts.com Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit
- Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns Stamp Set
- Fine Gold Embossing Powder
- Darice Heat Gun
- Stamp Block
- Pop Dots
- Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker
- Silhouette Cameo
- button, twine, adhesive gems
- ATG gun
Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all of the pieces that create the harvest corn from the SVGCuts.com Enchanted Autumn SVG kit. I’m using Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to create all of the visible layers. I’m also using the 6×6 sized cardstock which fits perfectly on a mat for most die cut machines. I like to use a Cricut mat with my Silhouette Cameo but it will fit on a Cameo mat too.
Step 2. After the corn is cut out, glue the pieces together. I resized my pieces to fit a standard A2 card, so they easily fit through the Xyron 3″ Sticker maker.
Step 3. For dimension, use foam pop dots between some of the layers!
Step 4. I decided to cut a piece of Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to cover the top of the Core’dinations A2 Kraft Cards I’m using. I also cut another piece for my embossed sentiment.
Step 5. Using Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set, I stamped onto the Core’dinations cardstock with Versamark and then heat embossed the saying with fine gold embossing powder.
Step 6. Before I was finished I cut a few more strips of paper and glued them down to add more focus to the sentiment. After tying on some twine, adding a button and some adhesive gems, the card was complete. Well, almost. I then decided to use a corner rounding paper punch and round all of the corners of the card. Ta da! All done!
I hope you enjoyed my project!
As the holidays approach, it’s fun to start planning and creating those special little things that make a hand-crafted celebration. In my family, we usually have small favors for each of our guests. I’m always hunting for ideas that are cute, but aren’t too expensive or too time consuming to make. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get a jump start with these adorable Turkey Treat Holders. Won’t these look fabulous on the dinner table?
Turkey Treat Holder Supplies:
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection
- Core’dinations Heavyweight 80 lb. Kraft
- Core Essentials Brights Cardstock
- Sizzix Writing Desk Die
- May Arts Ribbon – 7/8″ Solid Ivory Check AKB14; 5″ Tulle 471-5-28; 1/8″ Burlap Cord SP-10
- Fiskars Fuse Die Cutting Machine
- Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry
- Small Clay Flower Pot
- Punch Bunch – Large Pear Punch
- Tim Holtz Mini Fasteners
Step 1. Die cut feathers. With this die, I was easily able to cut 4 layers of paper at a time.
Step 2. Add ribbon around the lip of the pot.
Step 3. Glue the feathers.
Step 4. Hand draw turkey body. Cut out.
Step 5. Punch a pear shape to create the turkey’s wattle. Snip a triangle for the beak. Use buttons and brads to create the eyes. Attach to flower pot.
Step 6. Wrap treats in tulle. Tie with burlap cord and place in flower pot.
Hope this helps make your holidays even happier!
I like to give a special treat to my favorite Halloween Spooks (nieces, nephews and close friends). It seems like this list is ever-growing, so I was really thrilled to find a cute idea that I can mass-produce.
Halloween Treat Boxes Supplies:
- Core’dinations Chalk Core Cardstock
- Core Essentials in Orange
- Spotted Jillian Cardstock in Parsley
- Sillhouette Machine
I downloaded a cut file from Silhouette here.
This shape is for the Bat Box. Then to create the spider and pumpkin, I cut the box shape out again, and then added a pumpkin shape and/or legs for the spider. Easy Peasy! The new Core’dinations Chalk Core Cardstock is such a cute and trendy addition to my Halloween projects!
I used Core Essentials, in Orange for the pumpkin, and a little scrap of Spotted Jillian Cardstock in Parsley for the leaf. I scored the cardstock where the lines of the pumpkin would be, and sanded the cardstock to make it pop!
The boxes are perfect for inserting a cellophane treat bag full of goodies, or a wrapped homemade cookie. A quick and easy way to treat my cute trick-or-treaters!
Hi fellow Core lovers! It’s Gini, and I am here to share my first post as part of the Core’dinations Design Team. I’ve become intrigued with the Day of the Dead celebration, and thought I would try my hand at creating a colorful canvas. The sparkle in the Core Couture paper did a great job mimicking the famous sugar skulls. And while crepe paper marigolds are the traditional decoration, I thought I would create them using punches and Core’dinations.
Day of the Dead Canvas Supplies:
- Core Couture – White Gloves
- Jillian Dot Spotted – Mantis
- Core Essential Brights
- Sand It Gadget
- Day of the Dead Wooden Skull
- May Arts Ribbon – 3/8″ Knotted Edge Satin 466-38-28
- EK Success Flower Punches
- Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal Paint
- Xyron Creatopia
- Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive
- 8″ x 10″ Canvas
- Craft Files
- Craft Knife
Step 2. Roughly trim around the skull. Use the Sand It Gadget to smooth the edges.
Step 3. Use a craft knife to remove the paper covering the intricate designs and smooth with small craft files
Step 4. Outline the designs with dimensional paint. Allow to dry.
Step 5. Sand a piece of Jillian Dot Spotted and adhere to a canvas.
Step 7. Punch flowers from Brights Cardstock (a mix of orange, yellow and red). Each flower needs 4 large and 4 small flowers.
Step 8. Lightly mist the flowers with water. Shape with your fingers to form a bud.
Step 9. Continue shaping each flower and allow to dry.
Step 10. Carefully unroll the dried flowers. Assemble with a dot of glue between each layer of petals.
I hope you have enjoyed this project! I will see you again soon.
