Day four means only one more day of this fun week..makes me sad!
We are here all week long with Lawn Fawn! Our team loves loves loves loves their stamps so much..make sure you head over to their site to do some shopping! From cards to layouts, we have it for you! Please make sure you head over to the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration AND their Facebook page as well. There is a stamp set up for grabs!
And don’t forget…we have a prize up for grabs this week! Some Fancy Pants Core Impressions!
First up today we have a gorgeous card from Designer Clare Buswell and here is how she did it:
Make card from cardstock. Cover top half of card with blue Core’dinations cardstock, sand edges using Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Stamp sentiment. Stamp clouds onto Tillie dot cardstock, fussy cut and adhere to card. Stamp pinwheels, color with Distress Markers, fussy cut and attach to card. Repeat stamp flowers, color with Distress Markers, fussy cut, trim and adhere to card. Fold piece of green Core’dinations cardstock, fringe edge with scissors to create grass effect, emboss using Gridlock embossing folder, sand and adhere to card with foam tabs. Attach baker’s twine, to finish.
And a card from Designer Debbie Standard featuring loads of Core and some of the cool background stamps from Lawn Fawn.
Some Tim Holtz Kraft Core and the sharp backdrops:
and using the interlocking backdrops with some Chocolate Box…loooove the subtle look of this. Debbie added some May Arts ribbon to both of her cards and a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system sentiment. These are GREAT if you don’t have a sentiment stamp that fits your needs.

Hello, Core friends! Vivian Keh here with an accordion mini album that I made for one of my three closest high school friends, all of whom were able to visit me recently for an amazing reunion, just as we all hit the big Four Oh! I crafted this album to house small photos from our long weekend together, using a monochromatic palette, which is extra fun with all the lovely tones and tints of cardstock that Core’dinations has available!
Check out the Core Essentials part of the website for color families so you can create your very own monochromatic look like this!
There’s some die-cutting, dry embossing, stamping, and of course my current favorite – tearing!
A distressed crumpled look is so so easy with Core!
Layer your scalloped edges for a “gingerbread” look! Ya know, like the roofs of gingerbread houses..cute, huh?!??!
Fiskars – scallop edger punch, small butterfly punch
Next up a layout….. How cool are those torn squares?!?!
Before we get started mark those calendars!
Today Ava Gavloski created this STUNNING box using LOADS of Glitter Silk Cardstock. Enjoy!
Another angle of the gorgeous box:
Love how the Glitter sparkles on the white Opulent Opal card base !
These cards feature the very fun Marvy Uchida Silhouette punches. The EMBOSS and punch!
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.
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!
Well…as a cake topper! Jill has some great birthday ideas for you today.
Hi everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another project with you. Today I am sharing the cake topper I made for my son’s birthday. He turned four this year. He loves cooking and baking, so we decided we would make the cake together. He picked out the kind of cake he wanted, the frosting, and of course what he wanted on top of the cake. This summer we have spent a lot of time at our lake cottage. He absolutely loves it up there. One of the highlights for him is to look at all the animals while we are on the pontoon boat. He especially loves it when we find turtles. So this year we decided a turtle themed cake would be fun.
Turtle Themed Birthday Cake
You may notice a random car in the picture…he painted that car and asked for it to be in the picturebecause he wanted to remember he painted that on his birthday.
I love Core’dinations Brights Paper Pack. I use it all.the.time! It is my second go to…my first go to favorite is Core’dinations white in the neutral pack…I know I’m weird! lol
Anyways, the turtles and waves were both made using the Brights pack. So go get yourself some and thank me later:)
Next up I’m sharing a project I made for my mom. I keep making cards for her that she absolutely adores and doesn’t want to throw away…this is where I blush and come up with a solution…..
Card Holder and Scalloped Card
When I first got my Design Team box from Core’dinations, this SUPER CUTE Fancy Pants Core paper was inside. This paper was my mom’s absolute favorite! I knew when her birthday rolled around, what I would be using to create her card! She doesn’t like really fancy things. She is more of a clean and simple gal so I used the backside of the cardstock.
Then when she said she needed a place to put all the cards I was making her, the Tim Holtz Kraft Core paper stuck out to me because on one side it is a kraft color and on the other side it is colored. I think it is so perfect because no matter which side you look at the paper it is beautiful!
Card Base: Fancy Pants Coredinations paper
Ribbon: May Arts
Card Holder: Tim Holtz Kraft Core

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.
