chalk core giveawayHi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today.  Recently my niece was over and wanted to watch the Disney movie Cinderella. We managed to find an animated copy of the movie and when the horse drawn carriage showed up her eyes widened with excitement.  It was at that moment that I know that I have to make one for her.  We are also doing a blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron so I will be featuring some of their lovely products in the post. To make this carriage I came up with a few steps in addition to those that come with the file.

Pumpkin-Carriage-CoredinationsPumpkin Carriage Supplies:

Step 1. Cut out all your pieces and assemble the carriage, lid, base and wheels.  The wheels are actually 12 layers thick so they are really sturdy.  I prefer to build my projects out of White Card stock but you can always use whatever cardstock you desire, just make sure it is at least 80 weight paper.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step1Step 2. Distress all the exposed edges.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step2Step 3. Emboss all your panels.  I wanted my carriage to have that pearlescent sparkle to it so I did not sand the embossed ridges.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step3Step 4. Attach the panels to the carriage, it does not matter what order you do it in.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step4Step 5. Cut your final trim pieces and attach them to the carriage as well.

Hello again, fellow Core lovers! It’s Gini, and today I have an upcycling project to share with you, using some of my favorite products. With a little help from Core’dinations, Xyron and Petaloo, I was able to transform a lowly Pringles Chip container into a dispenser for cosmetic cotton rounds.

Step 1.  Measure around your container and cut paper to fit.

Step 2.  Draw a template for your opening on scrap cardstock. Cut in the center of the paper as well as the canister.

Cut Outs

Step 3.  Stamp decorative border at the top and bottom of the paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with gold powder. Tip: Sometimes metallic embossing powders leave a residue.  Use the Dust Buddy after embossing to remove this powder.

Step 4.  Run the paper through the Creative Station machine to apply adhesive. Carefully adhere to the canister, lining up the openings.

Step 5.  Ink the back of the vellum quote with metallic gold.  Die cut a frame using the Glitter Silk cardstock.

Step 6.  Use the small tape runner to apply adhesive to the back of the frame. Center quote and trim the excess.

Step 7.  Cut a circle to match the top of the canister.  Add trim around the top and bottom of the canister and lid to hide the raw edges.

Step 8.  Spritz the flowers with gold and let dry and add the embellishments to the canister to finish as shown.

So remember, look at your empty containers with a creative eye, before you take out your trash!  See you soon.

Leafy Witch Hat Supplies:

Step 1.  Die cut, emboss, and sand leaves.  I made a total of 12 leaves, 4 of each color: No. 6, No. 7, and No. 20; yellow, orange and brown.  After sanding wipe each down with your Sand-it Gadget.

Step 2. This step is not necessary, but for added interest and depth, you can ink the edges of the leaves.

Step 3.  To create spiral flower, begin by drawing a spiral on the back of the copper Glitter Silk sheet.

Step 4.  Cut along drawn line.

Celebrate this Labor Day with American pride! Create this beautiful USA bunting and patriotic decor just in time for the holiday!

THshatteredJULYShaunte1

Supplies:

The most difficult part of this project is making the rosettes. Start by searching rosette tutorials on Pinterest, you will find a ton! Make a few of these out of core’dinating cardstock. Adhere to banners, adding trim and other embellishments. Don’t forget to cut out the USA title from some Glitter Silk Cardstock.

THshatteredJULYShaunte2

Next up, make the stars by doing some simple scoring. Scor from the back, fold and sand. The are super simple to make and we will need a few. Some for the frame itself and some for the buckets.

Add bits and pieces of different embellishments and you have a great piece of home decor.

Debbie Stadard here with an easy step-by-step on how to create a festive gift bag and tag for the that next big day of yours! Don’t be afraid to emboss that Glitter Silk. It looks amazing!
1.  First off pick a little box – as you can see I have had this one awhile but that’s ok – I’m covering it. Using the wrong side of your paper mark the bottom of the box and the top of the box and cut out.  The great thing about Glitter Silk is that the back is white so it’s easy to make lines. Then cut a smaller piece to fit in the bottom of the box.
2.  Now glue all the pieces to the box.

3. Measure around the box and the height of the bottom of the box and cut.  Glue to sides holding to get a tight fit.  If you have to cut a second strip it’s easier to cut one side and then piece it that way.

4.  Do the same thing for the top of the box.

5.  Now because I didn’t want my seam to show on to I used these pearls from Paper Studios.  They worked well on here because they are all attached in one long line so you can do an entire side at one time.

6.  Then I used a Spellbinder’s die to cut my flower and leaves and embossed the them.  I used my Xyron 250 to run the leaves through and attach to the top of the box and then some Glue dots to add the flower after I added a brad.

7.  Now to make my bag I used the rest of the turquoise sheet.  I embossed it (you don’t sand Glitter Silk due to the glitter finish) and attached it and another embossed purple strip.  Then I made a banner sentiment using the green and layering it with some turquoise and added a David Tutera Sentiment.
8.  Tie a festive bow to the top and you have a great gift set!
