And you can win here, too!
Today we have a card from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley using loads of embossing. The embossing looks great on the Vintage Core, doesn’t it???? And the trick with swirls is to stamp first and then (dry) emboss. It adds just another layer of texture.
Wow, this week is just flying by, isn’t it?
First up we have important giveaway information. We are sponsoring DAY THREE of Scrapbook & Cards today’s 12 Days of giveaways. You have until NOON Dec 22nd 2012 to post on their blog HERE to win ONE EACH of our 6×6 collection packs!
If you were here earlier then you know we are having a super fun 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.
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.
PLEASE make sure you check out the Scor Pal blog for some INCREDIBLE designs this week (I think there might be a prize over there 😉 ). They SIMPLY rock. You know we always have something up our sleeve for you when we do these fun blog events so keep commenting for a chance to win some great Core’dinations Cardstock!
Today we have some gorgeous designs from Designer Shaunte Wadley. She created this beautiful flower on the card just by using some simple scoring. The flower is a Lifestyle Crafts die so you could really do this with any flower.
See how Shaunte scores from the back? That is important so the raised line is on the front of the cardstock. Especially when you are sanding.
And a close-up of it on the card. Keep in mind sanding the Gemstones will take off the shine so you may not want to sand it.
AND Shaunte created her frame on this card by scoring and using the VERY FUN Scor Bug Embosser!!! It makes these fun dots that look so great sanded.
AND she scored the woodgrain on the branch using some Vintage Cardstock. So you can see all the really amazing details you can get on your projects just by scoring and sanding. The base of the card is Whitewash.
And another card for you from Shaunte using Core Essentials and loads of scoring.
Did you see yesterday’s post?
Make sure you check out the journaling challenge! AND throw in an uber cool Core technique and you get TWO chances to win!!!
Today we have some inspirational cards from Kandis Smith. Kandis always makes the most beautiful cards.
For the first card, Kandis used the Provocraft Diamond Plate and her Cuttlebug to create the subtle but perfect background. LOVE the gray.
And how about some Tim Holtz Inspiration? The rich, earthy tones from the Tim Holtz/Ranger collections are perfect for those Father’s Day projects. And don’t forget those awesome Tim Holtz/Ranger Sizzix dies for your embossing machines. They add the perfect touch to this amazing cardstock collection!
Today we are celebrating cards! The Design Team has been loading some really fabulous cards from Graduation themes to Just Because cards. Enjoy!
Kimber McGray featuring some Jillibean Soup products:
What goes great with Valentine’s Day? Chocolate Mocha does! We are gearing up for the big day in February already.
Some subtle sanding and a Cuttlebug embossing folder makes this card wonderful and unique at the same time.
