Hmmmmm…I think that is for now!   So…last week on Facebook I said we would give you some St Patty’s Day inspiration so let’s do it! Thanks to Design Team Member Debbie Standard we have a great card for you today.

This Tuesday’s  Tip is to break out that Glitter Silk for St Patty’s Day. As you can see, we love our GS here ..it was great for Valentine’s Day and we are STILL using it in March!

Gosh, it looks beautiful embossed, doesn’t it? Pair it with some Core Couture and you have a festive card.

Are you? Don’t forget you have until Sunday night to get the challenges done! That is a ton of time!

Challenges are listed here and Rules are posted here.

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this gorgeous card for Debbie Standard’s ribbon challenge.  Here is how she did it:

Begin by sanding the edges of a dark green card base from Core’dinations, then add a layer of black Pearls cardstock (from our Cardmaker series) and a slightly smaller piece of red embossed Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions. Add black photo corners for a bit more detail. Trim a piece of green May Arts ribbon and adhere to the card with a snowflake cut from a piece of May Arts trim, embellish with a rhinestone from Queen & Co. Die cut a bracket shape onto a piece of Black Magic, and punch a scalloped circle form a gold piece of Glitter Silk, mounting with foam squares to the center of the card. Finish by stamping a Cats Life Press “christmas time” image onto a piece of Snowflake Core Essentials and punching into a circle shape.

Some details of the sanding:

With only a few days left to Halloween we thought we would share some very treats for you!

And when we say treats, we of course mean festive Halloween tags :) Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post for more of these fun and festive Halloween inspired tags. One for each day of the month of October.

Glitter Silk, Black Magic, Core Tags…you name it Designer Leica Forrest used it for her Halloween Daily Fun box of tags. I don’t know about you but this is my favorite time of year!

So for the next few days we will be showing you bits and pieces of these fun tags Leica created.

See the purple Glitter Silk tag on the left?! Don’t be afraid to use those rubons on your Glitter Silk (the green swirls under the pumpkings). They go on smooth and don’t rub off.

And how about that Fiskars paper crimper?  Oh yes!

We looove to crimp here and it looks great on tags, too!

Countdown to Halloween!

So here are a few close-ups and shots for you. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

Look at all that Glitter Silk! And Leica tore the top of the tag with the Black Magic to reveal the green core and embossed with the spiderweb. LOVE that idea of tearing the top of the tag versus the bottom.

We will be back with more of these tags tomorrow!

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.
