We are so excited about the BRAND NEW David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system embellishments!
Today our David Tutera Celebrate design team is creating some Halloween cards for us!
First up is Designer Margie Higuchi. Margie used the Glitter Silk Carstock base for her card. You don’t need much more than that to add sparkle and pizazz to your cards!
This first card is from Debbie Standard using only Step 3 embellishments! How cuuuute?
And how fun is this card? Debbie used some mists on her black Step 2 layer to match that orange layer. Clever, huh??? And these banners come PRE-CUT for you in the new embellishement packs. How cool is that? Just punch out and sand…easy as 1-2-3!
We don’t forget about our HUGE giveaway!

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!

We have some gorgeous projects for you today! Three very different takes on what you can do with Core’dinations and Couture Creations projects. Mixed Media and a CAS card…something for everyone.
First up Designer Ava Gavloski. She is the queen of texture! She always is inspired by life and created this mixed media canvas for us today. Here is a little bit about this project from Ava….Recently, I visited the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada ( www.rbg.ca). That visit inspired me to create my Core’dinations Couture Creations canvas. There is a plant at the rock garden called a Helleborus that likes the shade and the young leaves of the plant look like a pale mint green flower which eventually become the leaves of the plant.
I folded tissue paper making a stack of 4 sheets for each of the 3 flowers die cutting with the Couture Creations Doily die. Keeping the tissue paper stacked together after removing from the die, fold the flower in half and half again and hot glue the edges as you shape the doily flower. Spray with your favorite re-inker/water mixture and dry.
And a close up of that gorgeous Fantasia Doily Die from Couture Creations:
Then the fun part of this project was selecting the various green co-ordinating colors from the Core’dinations collections that harmonize with each other. Core’dinations collections sing in harmony on this organic canvas.
And we are looooving the 3D Foam Adhesive from Couture Creations! Check out this great detailed shot from Jill showing all that dimension:
