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!
Who’s up for some cute cards today? Well we have some cute cards from Kate Nolan-Denham for you today that include some stamping and, of course, Core!
One of ourfavorite things to do on Core’dinations Cardstock is stamp! Kate does that on this first card…love all the tiny accents on this card, too. And don’t forget to use the 6×6 packs for your cards!
How about a layout?
We have a random winner!
Thank you so much for a GREAT week! We hope you enjoyed yourselves and got loads of inspo for your Core and Tombow to use in the future. You can’t do much without quality adhesive, right? RIGHT!

MaryLou email ellen_sosnoski@core’dinations.com with your full name, address and phone number with Tombow Winner in the subject line.
And how about another card from Design Team Member Heather Kaesgan? A super cute card using some Marvy Uchida punches and Glitter Silk, Core Couture, Core Essentials and a Darice embossing folder for the buttons. What a great mix don you think? Love how the ribbon that she created with the punches pops off the top a bit. Oh of cours..Tombow adhesive!
Not sure about you but wedding season is in full swing for us in the summer and today Designer Gail Linder has some gorgeous engagement cards for you today. Gail mixes and matches our cardstock brilliantly! Glitter Silk and Chocolate Box? Fabulous!
Here is a little bit about these gorgeous cards from Gail:
So how about a St. Patricks’ Day layout featuring Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Cardstock.
This entire layout is Shattered cardstock except for: the Core Tags (journaling) Glitter Silk (Shamrocks, title) Core Couture (pennants). Loving that scoring detail around the edges? Break out your Scor-Pal. It’s easy and looks GREAT! Remember to Scor from the back and sand the front for that great detail.
Shaunte used gold ink and rubbed it into the lighter shade of the Shattered cardstock. This detail shot shows the gold color it turned the cardstock, and seeped down into the cracks. I sprayed it with glitter spray too. Never too much bling, right?!!? And love how Shaunte makes these flags with the Queen & Co. washi!!!!
LOVE IT! Hope this inspires you to scrap those St Patty’s day layouts!
