Today we have some inspiration for Valentine’s Day for you from Ava Gavloski. I hope you love red, pink and black because you came to the right place!
Hello Ava here …Happy Valentines Day! The heart is wonderful place for all things kind and good.
Here is a card that I designed showcasing Core’dinations Vintage collection and Scarlett from the Darks collection.
You can see that embossing and sanding the Scarlett red cardstock matches the Vintage cardstock well. That is one nice feature of Core’dinations cardstock, so many of the collections co-ordinate with each other to design a wonderful presentation.
Add some embellishments like Darice washi tape, rhinestones, pins and ribbon and your have a luscious full bodied presentation of a vintage valentine card. Visit your nearest LSS and pick up some Core’dinations Cardstock for that special card.

I would like to share a Wedding Layout with you to celebrate February the month of Sweetheart Valentines.
I choose the Core Amour Whitewash cardstock to showcase how quickly pre-embossed collections from Core’dinations can have a layout completed with a great textured presentation.
This close up showcases the sanding to reveal a light pink inner core that works so well with the Vintage black lae pattern of this cardstock. I have punched out some mini hearts from the Gemstones collection
and embossed the hearts for some texture to show the shine of the Gemstone collection.
To complement the pattern of the cardstock, I die cut some flourish’s from Sizzix and embossed the flourish to give the gemstone cardstock
The layout is embellished with some doilies, tulle and sequins.

Gina K Stamps has a cute set of stamps which celebrates Valentine’s Day and I thought this vintage phone complements the vintage feel of the Core’dinations Vintage collection.
I stamped the image using WOW embossing powder to gloss up the image to support the quality of the vintage Core’dinations cardstock. The pre-embossed vintage Core’dinations cardstock makes this card full with dimension after sanding to reveal the inner colored core.
I also embossed, sanded and border punched some strips of black cardstock from the Neutral collection
to reveal the inner grey core of this cardstock to make faux washi tape. Think of the unlimited possibilities of creating faux washi tape just by sanding your Core’dinations Cardstock strips.
Embellish your card with rhinestones, sequences and Mary Arts Ribbon.

Yes ma’am! But first, don’t forget to come back Monday! We have a great week lined up for you with our friends over at Lawn Fawn Stamps.
And next up we have THE CUTEST project EVER from Designer Heather Ann Kaesgan! Heather found this cute little night light kit at her local craft store (Pat Catan’s) and she altered it with some Core’dinations Cardstock. How ca-UTE is this??? Heather used some Spotted Cardstock in the 6×6 and a David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system Step Three Sentiment.
With the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system, you can easily swap out the sentiment on the front. Use a more neutral cardstock base and you can change it every holiday!
And Heather adds such fabulous detail with the Washi Tape along the top. It’s just the perfect accent for any project.
