Today we have Designer Shaunte Wadley creating for us using one of our favorites, Black Magic Cardstock. Get out that Sand it Set because sanding Black Magic is F-U-N!
Here is a little bit about this layout from Shaunte: ” I used Black Magic for everything but the journaling and the Flowers. Those are Whitewash (journaling) and Core Essentials (flowers.) I think it is pretty cool how well the colors matched between collections.
The title letters were a fun technique! I distressed them–the letters were too narrow for pop-dots–I would have had to cut them down a lot, so the Liquid Scrap Dots worked great! The end result looks like crumpled chipboard because of the dimension the Scrap Dots gave the letters.
I used the 450 Quick Dry adhesive as a base for glitter to stick to, to give a sort-of custom brad look to my side border on the photo.

To day ONE of Helmar and Core’dinations Teaming up for some fabulous inspiration. Make sure you leave us a comment today and every day for more chances to win some of our unique cardstock.
The first of today’s projects comes from Cari Locken. This Happy New Year card is too perfect to start this week off, don’t you think? Cari used Core Essentials and Vintage Cardstock on this card. She turned the textured side over to the backside of the cardstock for some smooth stamping with her myStampBOX Stamps. And, OF COURSE, Helmar Zap dots!
Here is a close up of the Zap Dots:
This next project is from Hera Frei. Hera made festive Chinese New year envelopes. Hera shares some background on this project with us today, “An ancient custom which has an important role in Chinese New Year is Hong Bao. This involves gifting small red envelopes filled with “lucky money”. These envelopes are given to children and unmarried adults by the married couples. The red color is considered to bring good fortune, and the money inside the envelope is used by them to buy holiday treats”.
These envelopes looks so amazing in the Couture cardstock, don’t they? And Hera embossed them, too! Love the look of the glittery cardstock embossed.
Hera made the basic envelope using a template and red Core Couture Cardstock and sealed it with Quick Dry Adhesive. Then punched some stars using a Fiskars punch and then used Zap Dots to layer them. She also used the Zap Dots to seal the gemstone to the top star and then finished them off with a SRM Sticker.
