DIY Simple and Elegant …we promise!

Hello, everyone!! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another project with you! Today, I have what I like to call “FairyWare”….a lot like “silverware”, but for fairies. My son and daughter love Disney’s fairy movies, so that is where this inspiration came from.  This idea is perfect for ANY kind of party…birthday…holidays and more!

FAIRYWARE

Fairy silverwareThis is simple simple simple. All I did was take wooden silverware and decorate it with David Tutera’s beautiful collections, the butterflies and borders pack. It is as simple as hot gluing them onto the silverware. Then I took a plastic bottle my kids had left over from their milk, took the wrapper off, washed it out and adhered David Tutera’s butterflies and white lattice background. This set, unfortunately for my kids, had to be shipped off to HSN, but we will surely be making some more “fairyware” soon! Have a crafty day! 

 

Next up I have a Clean And Simple card to share with you. This card was created using David Tutera’s line which is made from Coredinations Cardstock, just in case you didn’t know. I love all different styles of card making, but with two small kids, lately I have been sticking with CAS. I think it is important to Thank people with a handwritten note. Today it is so easy to send a text message or email thanking someone, which I do, but my favorite is a handmade card.

Keep in mind this can be applied to invitations…Christmas cards..you name it! 

Thank you card

 

Sometimes I feel so rushed to make cards or I’ll make one and the person doesn’t seem to appreciate it the way I thought they would and then I feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life making a card they really don’t care about. This card solves both of those problems. David’s line is quick and simple. He has it laid out for you. Basically, you supply the adhesive and it takes 5 minutes  to make the card. I used David’s white card base, flower pack and sentiments. All found here on his page exclusive ot our website.  Quick. Simple. Fabulous! Have a crafty day!

White on White Monochromatic cards

I think my new favorite color is white…is that possible?!?!?

Shaunte Wadley created these beauties for us today…wowzas! Creating dramatic monochromatic projects is so easy with Core because you can mix and match the different lines for some sparkle…emboss for some texture and you have the perfect card.  For each card, I listed the  lines she used so you can look closely and see beautiful details. Little things like different embossed layers, pearls and stitching make all the difference.

For more monochromatic ideas check out a post we did a few weeks ago HERE.

Card One is the simpliest with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white smooth cardbase, Core Essentials white, and the butterfly is Core Couture.

shaunte

Card two: start with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white cardbase and emboss it.  Then add a strip of Core Couture with die cut letters, then emboss some Core Essentials white in another strip. Stitch together. Then add butterflies laong the top in Glitter Silk and a strip along the bottom from Step 3 of the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system.

Again, starting with a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system smooth white cardbase, emboss a layer in white Core Essentials. Adhere with Helmar Zap dotsafter punching a hole in the side, add white heart on a string from Glitter Silk Cardstock, finish by creating some embossed strips along the bottom with scalloped pieces, an embossed strip from Core Couture and a banner created using a Dymo Label maker.

Did you know we have  a video on how to create with your Label Maker?  Check it out HERE!

More Mother’s Day Inspiration!

May 3, 2013 by  
Filed under Core Blog

Don’t forget to reach out to those women in your life that make every day special for you!

Today we have a beautiful card from Designer Kerri Smith using the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system. The great thing about this system is cards take only minutes. AND this sentiment, “for you with love”, from Step 3 is so versatile. You could make this card and have it ready to go, adding the sticker sentiment at the last minute depending on the occasion. BUT since we are celebrating mom’s Designer Kerri Smith used the mother’s day sentiment from the white and black stickers.

We can’t wait to see what you create with this fabulous system.

Remember to share those creations on the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system FACEBOOK page!

You’re Special _______

The great thing about the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system is it’s versatility.  Basicall you can swap ideas that you see here with any of the sentiments OR just make a “You’re Special” card and keep it on hand for any occasion that arises.

Designer Margie Higuchi created this example for us today.

Here are a few tips:

1.) Use the die cut shapes on the Step  Two layers to match and place your sentiment.

2.) Mix and match the Step 3 pearls from other packs.  These pink pearls are found in the Butterfly 2 Shapes & Cupcake Shapes both of which were not used on this card.

3.) Use a SQUARE cardbase! EEEEK! These are so great and not that hard to do. See how Margie used the Step 2 A2 layer and then balanced it with the Border Strips?  Brilliant and EASY!

Have a beautiful day!
