If you like cards you came to the right place, just sayin’! Today we have some gorgeous cards for you from our very talented design team member, . But first… we wanted to say Thank YOU for an awesome week and weekend of Cropping Hard Core style!
We will post winners as SOON as we can. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Seeing Core’dinations in action is always amazing and I learn so much and see so many new things. So stay close!
Now here are Tracy Grubers two CUTE cards. She always stamps beautifully, don’t you think?
There is no question that I love to stamp and color with Copics. The awesome part? I can stamp on my Core Tags and then color them. They are made with a really heavy card stock, which allows you to color and shade your images without the ink bleeding. I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set to make this cute baby card. The background is made with Spotted Jillian Dot and Vintage Core’dinations papers.
The Chocolate Box Collection has some really cool card stock! I love how one side is brown and the other side has a variety of colors that can be revealed when sanded. I used one of this card that was a tan backing to keep with the “animal/jungle” theme. I paper pieced the leaves with green card stock from the Darks paper pad.
Core’dinations has team spirit! We’ve teamed up with other manufacturers to show you how our products “core’dinate” together. Check them out by clicking on the logos below and let us know what you think!

It was a gorgeous weekend here in the Northeast and fall is here. This is my favorite time of year and I try and cherish every one of these crisp fall days with my sweater and scarf and favorite pair of jeans.
Do you know what else makes me think of fall?
This gorgeous wreath Paula Gilarde made. What a great way to showcase how you can use a few of the different lines Core’dinations Color Cardstock together. I can just imagine how happy I would be every time I came home to see this hanging on my door!
Here is a close up showing how Paula embossed and sanded each leaf and how the color core shows through the Chocolate Box Cardstock.
I apologize for the length between posts this week but I have been battling a terrible cold that knocked me out. I wanted to share this card for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Most people have been touched by this disease in one way or another so we, at Core’dinations Cardstock, ask you to take time and get your mammograms, take care of yourself by being vigilant and do a self breast exam regularly. I know it is hard because we get busy but the best thing we can do for our family and friends is take care of ourselves.
With that being said, here is a card I created for a dear friend battling this disease right now using the Quickutz Awareness ribbon die. I cut little slits in each ribbon and adhered them together because when I think of this disease, I think about how we need to fight together to defeat it one day.
Also, this week is Ichthyosis Awareness Week. Our fearless leader, Sarah Hodgkinson has taught us a lot about this disease and if you get the chance please visit the site to learn more about what you can do.
Here is a beautiful bookmark Sarah and her daughter made:
Ema and Sarah made butterflies using a Cuttlebug die/embossing folder set and then sanded them lightly…using Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. She then typed out a few facts about ichthyosis and added them to the body of the bookmark.
