Today Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley created this beautiful Hanukkah card using all sorts of Core and textures. It’s a great way to accent the candles so each one core’dinates. And of course, the Label Maker technique. One of our faves around here!
First up we want to announce last week’s winner! We had such an amazing time with Scor-Pal! We hope that you did, too. Their products and Core’dinations go hand in hand. Scoring+Sanding = FUN FUN FUN!
wow…These are Beautiful. I really need a score-buddy so I can do these. Those papers are gorgeous too. Wonderful job.
Amy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and phone number ASAP so we can get your Core prize out to you! Please note, we are gathering Hard Core Crop winners and addresses and shipping those right now so your prize many not go out until after the Holiday. Thanks!
So who wants a layout? ME! ME! ME!
Due to our Hard Core Crop and blog swaps we ran out of time to get Rebecca’s last Guest Designer layout out up on the blog so we are doing it today. Such a HUGE thank you to her and beautiful, out of the box designs that show off Core’dinations Cardstock. Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions was our very first line of Core Impressions and it is still a favorite around here. It is so versatile…just like how Rebecca used it for a Christmas layout. The Red is perfect!
Sand first and then add some paint or stamping details for that perfect accent:

Also, make sure you say “hi” from us over on the Helmar Facebook page AND they have some awesome boards over on Pinterest, too! And…you know how it goes here… post all week long for a chance to WIN some FAB Core’dinations goodies all for yourself. Comment every day for more chances to win!!! And, of course…check in over at the Helmar Blog for more inspiration.
Today we have some gorgeous designs from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. For this first layout, Debbie adds pops of colors against the black Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And you need great adhesive to adhere that May Arts ribbon down, don’t you? Well grab that Helmar Quickfix adhesive tape runner ..it’s the perfect size for ribbon! And the 450 Helmar Quick Dry adhesive works really well for those little bits like the green flowers Debbie cut using her Spellbinders dies. You can dab some of the Quick dry on and you are good to go..and fast! No drying time needed 😉
I know Halloween was last week but we just had to share this fun layout with you using some of the newly released Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. These are so fun!!!!!!! Pre-embossed sheets for all your favorite Holidays. Seriously..did I say how fun these are? It’s like magic when you start sanding and all the color starts to come through.
Remember to use that Dust Buddy after you sand so that adhesive sticks better.

And how much do you love that star? They are so so easy to make. Cut out a star with any kind of diecutting machine or even free hand it. Then turn it over and score from point to point and then sand the front! Remember to always scor from the back so the raised image is on the front to sand. For more tips on scoring check out our videos here.
And make sure you check to see if you are a winner!
