Walking in a Winter Wonderland…

With Design Team Member Debbie Standard!

Core’dination’s has so many wonderful collections to choose from it makes creating easy!  I love this Pink Paisley Impression’s collection.  I picked pink for my page and sanded it with my Sand it Gadget so that the embossing would stand out more.  Then I used my Dust Buddy to collect the extra dust from the sanding.  Next I chose a piece of the Spotted Jillian collection – attached it with my Xyron mega runner and stitched on it.  I added some of the pastel Core’dination’s tags and layered it.  I added a David Tutera tag on which I stamped.  Then using some of the Glitter Silk collection I punched out some snowflakes and topped them with pearls and pom poms from Queen & Co.  I created a little film strip along the bottom of my photos of more of the photos from the day.

I love the White Wash Collection.  There’s just so many fun things to do with it.  For this page I started out scoring around the page.  Then I opened up a Cuttlebug Embossing folder of snowflakes and laid it open behind my cardstock and sanded over it.  It didn’t come out  in sharp detail but gave the background a different look.  Then I also just sanded  with my Sand It Gadget around the entire outside edge of the page.  Once I finished I dusted it all off with my Dust Buddy and added some stenciling and stamping.  I added some Darice Washi tape along the top and bottom of my page and then added my papers, tags and photo.  I wrapped the top photo layer with some Queen & Co. twine (love this stuff).  I wanted some sparkly snowflakes so I took a sheet of the David Tutura Step two Edge Silver Metalic pack and punched out my snowflakes.  Then I just added some rhinestones from Queen & Co.

Look how the silver layers play with the light! Gorgeous…this is the same card just two different look depending on how the light hits it.

 Pre-made cardbases are so fun…don’t be afraid to alter them like Trine did here. She used her snowflake punch and came down from the top of the card and punched it. Don’t forget to save that punch for another project!

Christmas Cards with David Tutera Celebrate!

Only a few more days until Christmas! One of the things that is SO GREAT about Core’dinations is that you can mix and match our lines beautifully. They all core’dinate…even our Core’dinations lines and David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System. Designer Jennifer Edwardson does this for us today!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Only a few more days until Christmas! Let’s get those cards done and mailed, right?  Well if you are like me then you are always a bit behind. That is why David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system is for YOU! You can mix and match the layers AND mix it with some Core’dinations carstock, too!!! Let’s take a look at what Jennifer Edwardson did with it today:
Like many of you I know, I too have been making Christmas cards like crazy lately and I’ve got a couple to share with you today !!
I started with an A7 (5 x 7) David Tutera card base and put it through my embossing machine with my fave Darice snowflake embossing folder.

 

I created the first ‘tree’ by punching snowflakes from white Glitter Silk cardstock and rasied them with 3D foam.  I embossed a piece of brown cardstock from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ paper pad (LOVE these – cardmakers NEED these pads) ….. I used the Darice woodgrain embossing folder and then sanded the top lightly to show the pattern !!

 

 

I added a star and sentiment from the David Tutera Celebrate Step 3 embellishment packs and finished this one off with some red twine.

 

 
I created the 2nd card using the same steps but different cardstock !! 
 
I started with the same kraft card base and then punched smaller heart shapes from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock and raised them using 3D foam …..

 

 
I punched a circle from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress cardstock pack and embossed it with a circle embossing folder and lightly sanded off the top for the ‘trunk’ of the tree ……

 

…… again the tree top and sentiment are from the Step 3 packs by David Tutera Celebrate with a little red twine wrapping it all up with a bow !!!

 

……. 2 different ways to create the same Christmas-y card featuring Core’dinations and David Tutera Celebrate !!!
 
Supplies:
 
Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection No. 13-S
Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection Brushed Corduroy
Coredinations Glitter Silk Opulent Opal
A7 David Tutera Celebrate kraft card base
David Tutera Celebrate embellishments
David Tutera Celebrate Sentiment Stickers
Sand It Gadget

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And a few quick cards using the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system from Debbie Standard! Again..we cannot stay this enough but they are as easy as ONE-TWO-THREE!

David Tutera Celebrate Cards!

Today we have some cards from David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system from one of our Designers …Jennifer Edwardson!  If you love these cards make sure you check out her blog here! First up Jennifer mixed and match our Core’dinations Whitewash with a David Tutera Cardbase:
I love the look of ribbon folded paper and have done it before in different ways but I wanted to make a sweet and simple card using the White Wash and a border punch (LOVE the White Wash) …..
I started with a white A2 (4.25 x 5.5″) card base from the David Tutera Celebrate card making system. I cut (4) 2 x 5 1/2″ pieces of white wash and then ran each piece through the same border punch. I lightly sanded the top of each piece to see the colors show through and then started to layer them onto my card base.
I ran a strip of double sided tape along the top of each piece and adhered that part down first, starting at the bottom of the base and working up.  Then I put 3D foam under the bottom punched edge to raise it off the base.  I layered each one on top of the other and then wrapped some ribbon at the edge of the top piece.  I stamped a thank you sentiment on the top right corner to finish it off ….. Super simple but super sweet  - easy to use for any occasion !!

And another card from  Designer Jennifer Edwardson:

I love the look of chevron on just about anything so I decided to create this quick and easy card with a chevron theme.

I started with an A2 white card base. I chose a piece of blue cardstock from the A2 Bulk Sheets pkg and ran it through my Big Shot using a Chevron embossing folder. I lightly sanded off the top to show the pattern and then started to layer (5) pieces from the A2 Border Strips pkg. They were a bit long as I turned the card to open vertically, so I just snipped the ends of the strips off. I chose the layered ‘thank you’ from the ‘Thanks 1 Sentiments’ sheets to finish it off …. add the included envelope and it’s good to go !!

David Tutera Quick and Easy Mini Album

November 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Core Blog

Let’s Celebrate Saturday…with David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system!!!
The David Tutera Card Making system is fantastic for quick, easy and beautiful cards, but it is also perfect to create mini albums too! Designer Jennifer Edwardson created a super cute and FUN mini album for us today…ENJOY!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I chose several pieces to put this fun birthday mini together.  The ‘cover’ to my album is a 5 1/2″ card base and the pages are (2) A7 (5 x 7″) white card bases.  I layered these together and then used my Crop A Dile to punch 2 holes in the spine to thread my twine through.
To embellish the cover I used tags, ballons, twine and a layered sentiment sticker from Step 3 of this system.  The bits to embellish with are so cute and together with some Bella Blvd. alphas they were perfect !!
Once I had my album bound together I started to create all the pockets and photos onto my pages. I added A2 and A1 cards to the main pages to create more spots for photos and cut the edges of a few for ‘hidden’ journaling spots.  I left these space blank as Alex wants to write his memories of his special day in this album (LOVE this :)
I love how it all came together and this shows that by taking great basics and putting them together, you can create amazing ‘step outside the box’ projects !!!
