Cards ..Cards…and more cards!

First up we have a gingerbread card from Designer Vivina Keh. Keep reading because this isn’t the gingerbread you were thinking of ;)

Vivian Keh here today to share with you a card which uses a technique I came up with awhile back which I call the “Gingerbread” technique.  Perhaps a Hard Core video tutorial is in store for you sharing this really easy technique!  In conjunction with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock that has been sanded, the patterns really pop off your papercrafted projects!

Bonus Day with Scor-Pal

This is the last day of our week with SCOR PAL. Do you have one of these?  Well, if you are a paper craft you better. AND if you love Core, then  you BETTER! Scoring, then sanding with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only way to go. We hope that you have found some new and exciting ways use your Scor-Pal.

Scoring raises the cardstock so you can sand it and release that inner Core. It’s gorgeous AND both design teams are going to show you easy and fabulous ways the Scor Pal products and Core’dinations can add interested to your papercrafting projects.

Did you know we have a Scoring Video?   Check out our Technique videos for some awesome ideas on what you can do with Core, including the scoring video.

Beautiful LO~ I like the whitewash cause it gives such a ‘weathered’ feel to my projects. I have only seen it in individual sheets and was wondering does it come in pads also? Thanks for sharing

Now let’s get today’s giveaway!

Today is all about Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless Collection.

We think this collection is timeless and is always one of our favorites! You can use it with your favorite Graphic 45 products or pair it with what you have in your stash like Design Team Member Debbie Standard did for us today!

Love the use of ribbon on this card from Debbie. She combines lace and satin trim and of course the Le Fleur and Houndstooth patterns.

See you tomorrow!

Tuesday Tip From Melissa Oliveira

November 8, 2011 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Cosmo Cricket, Graphic 45

We have some fun tips from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Even though these layouts have a summer theme to them doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips for any project.

First up Melissa stamped on her Whitewash for this journaling. If you have used our cardstock before, you know it gets a bit dusty  when you sand it. First up, you really should have a Sand it Gadget to make your sanding easy. After that, you want to use our Dust Buddy.

The Dust Buddy is a unique cloth that does many things, including cleaning the sanding residue so your adhesives can stick better. One additional thing it does is make your stamped images crisper and cleaner as seen on Melissa’s layout here. If you sanded this Whitewash and didn’t use a Dust Buddy,  the stamped imaged wouldn’t be as great.  So make sure you tell your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock retailer to get some Dust Buddies. They go a long way, too!

And here is another example of a layout where Melissa stamped over some Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And of course, how cool are those torn waves in the Whitewash????

First up is an album AND matching frame set from Design Team Member Char Dobson. LOVE how these ladies worked the metal door plates from Graphic 45 Staples collection!!!! LOOK at all that Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless collection! We love how our Cardstock looks with shine so Char used some Maya Mist …looks gorgeous, don’t you think?

{Sigh} Paris!

Here are some details on the album. The album is Graphic 45. These premade Policy Envelopes from the Staples collection make creating minis so easy!!!! Char used Glue Arts and Helmar Adhesives to help create this gorgeous mini,too.

AND a printer’s tray with Designer April Derrick. The details are amazing.

Some details…

April die cut out the treasures title using  the Graphic 45 Signature Series cardstock and then applied glossy accents to the top so when it dried it has a 3-d effect.

Them April took the metal flowers from Graphic 45 Staples collection and ran them through the Cuttlebug and embossed them, then painted them with some Tattered Angels silver metallic glimmer glaze!  And add some Petaloo flowers. Love them in black.
