That day of sweet notes and sweet treats is around the corner and today I have a layout to share with you showcasing the Valentine’s paper of the Seasonal Impressions collection. I love selectively sanding the words that work with and support my layout. It’s almost like having a piece of patterned paper for a background.

What else could you possible need?  Tracy Gruber is working colors, patterns and so much more today!

First up a very fun and festive card…but keep scrolling down…there’s a great layout, too!

I love to find new techniques to use with my Core!  For this card, I used a Studio Calico mask and put it behind my piece of Core card stock.  I then sanded with the Sand It Gadget until the design started to show.  Pretty cool, huh?  Then, I cut some stars and then added the  white shape with the Paper Smooches sentiment. Next up some May Arts ribbon and Imaginisce Glam Rocks finish off this card perfeclty!

Supplies:
-Core’dinations Neutral and Dark paper pads
-May Arts Ribbon
-Imaginisce Glam Rocks and I-Rock
-Paper Smooches Word Salad
-Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
-Spellbinder’s Label 4 die
-Memory Box Cosmic Star Set
-Studio Calico Mask

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The best part about scrapping with Core’dinations card stock is the ability to use different techniques to create unique layouts.  On the dark pink base, I simply used the Sand It Gadget to sand three different areas for a distress look.  It adds a different element to your layout that is really easy to do!  I then used a piece of light pink Spotted Tillie Dot and sanded it to make the polka dots “pop.”  The last technique I used was crumpling up a piece of White Wash card stock, flattening it out, and then sanding it.  This allows the Sand It Gadget to hit the creased spots and the background color to show through.
