AND they have this cute blinkie just for you!

Today we have some cards from Design Team Members Lydia Jackson and Debbie Standard!

We cannot get enough of this little cutie! Lydia used some May Arts ribbon and a Lifestyle Crafts die to make that awesome border. The Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain cardstock looks great with the raccoon, too!

Debbie Standard this awesome card using some Gemstones (embossed beautifully for the background) and then Debbie stamped her footballs and then embossed them, too! That is our Tuesday Tip for you….you can still stamp AND emboss with your Core!

The key is to stamp FIRST, cut it out and THEN emboss the image. It makes this football much more realistic, don’t you think?

And, I have to say, that girls DO RULE!

I also wanted to post about our Colour Lover’s Monthly Inspiration. For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s. Sorry for the confusion but we are not offering a prize for this challenge at this time due to our GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY going on right now. It’s HUGE…a value of over $700!!!!

Introducing….

Happy Monday!

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team.  For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves.  We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!

First up is Andrea Amu.  Here is a little bit about Andrea in her own words:

Hello! My name is Andrea Amu and I am born and raised in Pennsylvania where I live with my fun-loving hubby of nearly 11 years. Scrapbooking has been one of my biggest obsessions since 1997 and most recently I’ve seemed to catch a card making bug too! When I’m not busy being crafty, I can also be found working part-time as a substitute Preschool teacher. I find enjoyment in shopping at craft and antique/junque shops, and collecting Old World stoneware and unique pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. Currently, I am also serving my third year as a designer for CreativeXpress.com and I’ve been fortunate to have had my designs published in Memory Makers publications, Northridge Publishing Media’s CARDS and Cricut magazines, Paper Crafts, The Bug magazine, Pinecone Press, and Blue Media and Quarry books. I am really excited to now be a part of the Core’dinations Design Team and I look forward to many inspirational experiences along the way!  Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here.

Love the Teresa Collins Core Amour on here and how Andrea printed her photo directly on the Core.

And next we have April Derrick. Here is a little bit about April in her own words:

My name is April Derrick and I am a Stay-At-Home Mother and Scrapbook Artist. I live in Arkansas, with my husband Scott, my daughter Charlie, and my sons Memphis and Castor. I have a love for all things crafty, and a passion for designing scrapbook layouts & mixed media art. I love to paint, draw, & distress…anything where I can get my hands messy! Documenting my memories in an artful way is extremely important to me and I always strive to inspire others whenever I can. I enjoy teaching others new techniques and I have been fortunate enough to host an annual scrapbooking /art retreat for the last six years on Petit Jean Mountain. I’m addicted to my camera, my scrap tunes, my sewing machine, all of my art mediums, and of course Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. In my opinion, Core’dinations Cardstock just plain rocks and I am honored to be part of the Design Team! Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here. April has a way with inks and mists for sure!!! Looks fabulous on some Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain.
