Chalk Core Christmas Tag

I love the chalkboard look, and knew that these Stampendous sentiment stamps would look really great embossed in white on some Chalk Core.

Chalk Core Christmas Tag Supplies:

1

Step One: Trim Chalk Core Cardstock to 2″x4″. Sand cardstock.

Step Two: Stamp sentiment in the center of tag with embossing ink, and wet emboss using white embossing powder. Add stamped shapes to tags, heat embossing between each element.

2

Step Three: Color in stamped images with a white colored pencil to make the image opaque.

3

Color images with colored pencils over the white.

Step Four: Finish tag. Trim top two corners of tag. Add eyelet and ribbon. Add swirls to tag using a white colored pencil. Repeat for additional tags! A trendy and classy way to dress up a holiday gift!

Black Magic Birthday Card

Celebrate your next Birthday with a Core’dinations Black Magic card. With some simple sanding and heat embossing you can make it look just like chalkboard!

Black Magic Birthday Card Supplies:

BM cu3

Step 1.   Begin by sanding the Black Magic cardstock first. It’s important you sand BEFORE you stamp and wipe dust with Dust Buddy. Removing excess sand will help the clear ink pad stamp clearly to ensure a crisp image when you emboss.

BM cu2

Step 2. Emboss with Tim Holtz & Ranger heat embossing powder. I like to use my scraps because sometimes it takes a few tries to get a good image.

BM cu1

Step 3. Add layers of Glitter Silk and more Black Magic along with embellishments.

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.

And of course…our blog! And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. She created the most beautiful card for us today!

Where do we start?  Shaunte started with a Tim Holtz Kraft-Core cardbase that she embossed and sanded.  And Core Tags? Yes, Please!!! (keep reading for more details on those 😉 )

Did you know that with our Core Tags you can pop out the silver grommet?  So..if you want to emboss it…PERFECT! Or if you want to flip your tag over and use the smooth side to stamp…YOU CAN! And if you are working with some FAB-u-Lous embossing powders like we are from Stampendous then you are in luck. OH! And don’t forget the beautiful Stampendous sentiment stamp using the Cling Flower Path stamp:

And another gorgeous detail….
