Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

MarchEsterPrjct_SuzannaLee

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

 Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:

Happy Wednesday!

Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.

We have a WOW of a Wednesday for you today from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. How many diffferent embossed patterns can you get on a layout?

Now I count SIX on this layout.  Now actually it could be SEVEN because Debbie’s flowers are embossed, too!  Oh no, EIGHT because she has two different kinds of embossed flowers from her Spellbinder’s dies. Now..here is the catch?!?!?!  Think you can do more?!?! Well, let’s see if you can!

WE CHALLENGE YOU TO GET AS MANY EMBOSSED PATTERNS ON LAYOUT AS YOU CAN! You have until the end of this month, March 31st,  to link your layout to THIS blog post or on our Facebook page. You must use Core’dinations cardstock on your project. It can be any kind…you can emboss it yourself or use our Core Impression lines so the sky is the limit!

Happy Creating!
