We are sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration Blog again! All you need to do is create a card using this inspiration piece. It’s that easy! Please make sure you check out the Challenge Rules section of their blog for details.
Designer Shaunte Wadley created this card using the above inspiration piece. Love how she used the Core Basics vellum and crumbled it to look like the cupcake wrapper!
Start with a Red Step One base. Emboss a Step Two Zig Zag Edge sheet with an embossing folder of your choice. Then cut a piece from the Step Two Silver Metal embossed collection. Mat it with a black sheet from the bulk cardstock collection. Attach all to your card base. Then place your sticker onto another piece from the black sheet (one sheet should be able to mat both of these). Attach it to to your card. Then pick two different size flowers from the Step three flowers collection. Attach and add a large Rhinestone.
Hey there !! Today I’ve got a super cute little card to share ….. I often love the sweet size of an A1 card as it’s just a touch smaller than the A2 but still gives you a great space to create on the front of your card.
Because the David Tutera collection is created using Core’dinations cardstock, I ran my card base through my eBosser with a large embossing folder so I could sand off the top layer and show the dimension of the dot pattern…..
I took (3) white cardstock tags and adhered them at different heights at the bottom of the card and then gently trimmed off the excess. I wanted them to stand out a little more so I added some faux stitching along the edges using my black journal pen.
The Step 3 embellishment pkgs have some super cute pieces in them so it was easy to add a couple of cute little hearts to these tags and a chip sentiment too !!
Today is ALL about David Tutera Celebrate and DesignerJennifer Edwardson:
With Valentine’s Day almost here I have been using LOTS of red and pink and white and kraft Core’dinations cardstock !!!
I started with an A7 (5 x 7″) kraft cardstock card base and added a piece of Bronzed Glitter Silk cardstock and adhered it towards the right edge.
I love love love my embossing folders and have been waiting to use these heart themed ones for Valentine’s Day !! I used a piece of Barn Door from the Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection and ran it through my embossing machine and lightly sanded of the top to really have the pattern stand out ……
For the large heart I used a piece of Antique Vanity from the Whitewash Collection and put it through my eBosser. I sanded off the top to show the pink color and then used my precision scissors to cut around the detailed edge of the heart. I raised it using 3D foam off to the right edge of the base and added a smaller red heart on top as well !!
I wanted to add a bit of ribbon to this card and chose this shear white American Crafts which worked perfectly with the whitewash cardstock ….. some alpha stickers to create a sentiment and this card is ready to give on the big day :))
AND one more from Jennifer. These super cute boxes can be used for ANY occasion
Happy almost Valentine’s Day !!! Today I have some super cute and easy treat containers to share with you ……
Like most girls, I like a little sparkle in my life and the Core’dinations Core Couture Glitter cardstock is PERFECT as it has just the right amount of shimmer and it DOESNT RUB OFF !!
For my Treat bag I used this fun glitter cardstock and for the little box I used my fave spotted jillian dot (love this cardstock :))
Both of these are Silhouette cut files. Core’dinations cardstock works like a dream with this digital cutting system. Quick and easy cuts that were ready to fold into shape and get embellished !!
I gently sanded the dotted cardstock BEFORE i ran it through the Silhouette. This makes it easier so that you don’t tear the smaller notches and tabs that come with a box like this.
I used the negative heart shapes from the larger glitter bag to help embellish the white cardstock tag and then added a sentiment sticker to finish it off.
I just love this little bag …. so perfect for chocolate treats, cookies or gift cards too !! I added another Core’dinations tag that I embellished with a scalloped shape punch using red Core Essentials cardstock and added a heart shaped sticker and tied it on using white sheer ribbon ….. such a fun bag for any occasion !!!

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 !!!
