Tip: When die cutting intricate dies always add a piece of wax paper between the die and your cardstock, it makes it much easier to remove from the die.

Happy Friendship Day!

Filed under Core Blog, Helmar Adhesives, Xyron

National Friendship Day is the perfect excuse to make a cute card for a friend!
Core’dinations Supplies:
Misc. Core’dinations scraps
Other Supplies:
Couture Creations Embossing Folder
Papertrey Ink Button Dies
EK Success Corner Rounder
Xyron Sticker Maker
Helmar ZapDots
How To:
1) The white card base is 4.5″ x 6″ of Core’dinations Neutral Snowflake with the top right and bottom left corners rounded.
2) I embossed the Core’dinations Whitewash background (4.25″ x 5.75″) with a Couture Creations Embossing Folder.
3) The embossed piece was then sanded with Core’dinations Sand It Gadget and dusted with the Dust Buddy to let the blue core show through.
4) Then, I printed my sentiment on Core’dinations Smooth Oval Tags.
***Tip: When using Core Tags in your printer, it is  best to print the sentiment out on a piece of paper first to make sure that your sentiment will fit on your tag.  Then attach your Core Tag with semi-permanant adhesive over the already printed sentiment and print the sentiment again.  Always perfect placement when done this way! 
5) Colorful ribbon was then added to the printed tag was glued with ZapDots 1/3 up from the bottom of the card.
6) The colorful die cut buttons are made from scraps of Core’dinations Cardstock.  Once cut, I ran them through my Xyron X Sticker Maker and sanded/dusted them before adding them to the embossed circles.
7)  Give the card to a friend and you are sure to make them smile!

Supplies:

Core Tags (your choice of color, shown is Love Potion)

Matching Core’dinations cardstock (your choice of color, shown is Love Potion)

Adhesive
Marvy Uchida Punch
How To:
1.) Choose two Core Tags that are the same size. Shown is the medium sized tag. Select a matching piece of Core’dinations cardstock. The great thing about Core’dinations is that the cardstock is a perfect match to the tags- it makes it very easy to mass produce treat holders!
2
2.) Score the bottoms of the Core tags at 1″.
3
3.) Fold the tags inward, and adhere bottoms, overlapping each other.

4.) From the matching piece of Core’dinations cardstock, cut 2 (two) 1″ x 2″ strips. Score strips on each end at 1/2″.  Fold strips inward.

6

7.) Using strong adhesive, adhere folded strips inside tags.

7
8.) Embellish treat holder as desired. Tie top of treat holders together through the grommets in the tags. I used a Marvy Uchida  punch that embosses as it punches so all you need to do is sand!

This size treat holder is perfect for Ghirardelli chocolate squares, or Hershey’s Nuggets.

Summer Fun Gift Bag and Tag

It’s Gail Linder here with you today to share a fun summer project using a variety of Core’dinations Cardstock!

Where I live in Queensland (Australia) we have a very long and hot summer. Needless to say my kids get invited to lots of pool parties over these months! Below I’ve created a fun bag and tag set that is sure to suit the feel (and color scheme) of any pool party!

Summer-Gift-Bag-Set-1

Supplies:

Core Essentials Pastel Collection – Reflecting Pool
Core Essentials Brights Collection – Atoll Aqua, Tulip
Graphic 45 Signature Series – Creme Brulee, Gala Gold
Spotted Jillian Dot - Heartfelt
Core Tags - Pastel
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Darice gift bag

May Arts ribbon
paper crimper
Big Shot
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
My Favorite Things & Simon Says Stamp Dies
Silhouette Cameo
Wave Border Set cut file

To create the look of waves for the front of the bag, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut six wave strips out of light aqua card which I then backed in a darker blue color to make them really stand out.

To add even more texture to the waves, I ran the strips through my paper crimper before adhering them behind. A quick sand to reveal the lighter core and I LOVE the effect! Check our Corrugate It video here on how to do this.

Summer-Gift-Bag-Set-2

A few fun embellishments and a colorful banner across the top completed my decorated gift bag front!

Since I have the waves and water, all we needed was some sunshine so I created a tag to go with it, inspired by the sun!

Summer-Gift-Bag-Set-3

To create this bright 3-D sun, I simply cut strips from different shades of yellow cardstock to fold over and layer. You can see that I ran some strips through my paper crimper also for even more texture, and also to tie in with the bag!

We are one of the main sponsors over at CSI: Color….Stories…Inspiration this month and we couldn’t be more excited!  Every Friday there is a new color palette introduced called a Case File. This week it’s Case File No. 126.

126 flat

LOVE how not only is there the “scene” which is the color palette but there is “evidence” and “testimony” that give you prompts to create as well! We will be sponsoring all month long so make sure you stay close  this month for a few more chances to win some Core. All images you create must be posted over on the CSI site.

Today we have a layout from Debbie Standard using this gorgeous Case File focusing on the Chevron pattern from the Evidence using our Core Impressions cardstock.

Supplies: Core Essentials, Spotted Cardstock
