All you need is some Vintage Core’dinations, Glitter Silk Cardstock , Gemstones and an old frame and you have all you need to make your very own Shadow Box!

Andrea die cut the hearts for flowers from her Cricut, added some Queen & Co. pearls,  and wrapped the stems in twine. Backing the title is a GREAT way to make it pop, too!   Layer bits and pieces of the project to added depth. This is a great way to create your very own home decor for any holiday or season!

And GUESS what???!?!?!?!!?

OUR DESIGN TEAM CALL IS POSTED HERE!

CHECK OUT! You don’t want to miss the opportunity to design with the BEST cardstock!



Tuesday’s Tip…Scraps from a Sketch

Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!

My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading ;)

And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:

Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:

Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies.  Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice.  Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.

AND ..last but not least…

My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are  like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk.  So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.

So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road.  All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.

It has been a crazy few weeks so we are finally back on track with a Tuesday Tip!

And it’s all about Halloween!

Designer Shaunte Wadley created this gorgeous table topper for us today. Break out those die-cuts and let’s get busy! For this gorgeous piece, Shaunte used Lifestyle Crafts dies.  Check out their Halloween collection here. You will NOT be disappointed! Dies are a great way to cut Core and create your own gorgeous creations.

Core Essentials for the base and the tree.
Vintage Cardstock for the moon, and the bats and the pumpkin/leaves.
Glitter Silk for the purple on the base, and Core Couture for the witch Silhouette.

DAY TWO!

We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY!  No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.

Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep  in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).

We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long (make sure to comment on every post here for more chances to win)

AND head over to our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house!  I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school.  We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!

Today, Day Two, we have Shaunte Wadley working some skills on a fun little treat box and soda treat that is sure to get any kid an “A” with their teacher! Shaunte used the School’s Out Stamp set from SSS…anyone that has kids in school NEEDS this stamp!

And some fabulous details of the Petaloo flower (they core’dinate so well, don’t they???)  and Sweet Stamp Shop stamps…

and Shaunte used Spectrum Noir markers to do the coloring. They are beautiful and smooth and just so easy to use.

In addition to stamping, Shaunte printed on her Core’dinations Cardstock, too! Don’t be afraid to mix up those fonts and colors!

Dies used today are from Lifestyle Crafts.
