First up we want to announce last week’s winner! We had such an amazing time with Scor-Pal! We hope that you did, too. Their products and Core’dinations go hand in hand. Scoring+Sanding = FUN FUN FUN!
wow…These are Beautiful. I really need a score-buddy so I can do these. Those papers are gorgeous too. Wonderful job.
Amy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and phone number ASAP so we can get your Core prize out to you! Please note, we are gathering Hard Core Crop winners and addresses and shipping those right now so your prize many not go out until after the Holiday. Thanks!
So who wants a layout? ME! ME! ME!
Due to our Hard Core Crop and blog swaps we ran out of time to get Rebecca’s last Guest Designer layout out up on the blog so we are doing it today. Such a HUGE thank you to her and beautiful, out of the box designs that show off Core’dinations Cardstock. Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions was our very first line of Core Impressions and it is still a favorite around here. It is so versatile…just like how Rebecca used it for a Christmas layout. The Red is perfect!
Sand first and then add some paint or stamping details for that perfect accent:
Are you? Don’t forget you have until Sunday night to get the challenges done! That is a ton of time!
Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this gorgeous card for Debbie Standard’s ribbon challenge. Here is how she did it:
Begin by sanding the edges of a dark green card base from Core’dinations, then add a layer of black Pearls cardstock (from our Cardmaker series) and a slightly smaller piece of red embossed Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions. Add black photo corners for a bit more detail. Trim a piece of green May Arts ribbon and adhere to the card with a snowflake cut from a piece of May Arts trim, embellish with a rhinestone from Queen & Co. Die cut a bracket shape onto a piece of Black Magic, and punch a scalloped circle form a gold piece of Glitter Silk, mounting with foam squares to the center of the card. Finish by stamping a Cats Life Press “christmas time” image onto a piece of Snowflake Core Essentials and punching into a circle shape.
Some details of the sanding:

Shaunte is using the London Cling stamp set from Stampendous’s BRAND NEW summer release! For more products you MUST check out their new products here. All week long it is our plan to show you new products!
Pair this fun London stamp set with some gorgeous Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions from the Black and Red collection (that label shape is still an all time favorite of mine!!!) and you have an awesome layout.
Shaunte did something really cool here, too. She stamped a core’dinating image on some scrap Core and then punched it with her circle punch.
How cool is that?!?! Adds dimension and some fun detailing of all the gorgeous Stampendous Glitter that we all know and LOVE!

Today we have a very cool layout from Design Team Member Leica Forrest! So Sand…Sand…Sand…does it ever get old? NO WAY! We love how Leica just sanded the Jillianbean Soup Core Impressions around the photo to create a beautiful focal point. AND she inked the Jenni Bowlin Core Impression Everyday Collection strips to really make them pop. Remember to Sand with a Sand It Gadget, then use your Dust Buddy THEN ink.
OR you could even turn it over and use the back side! Cool, huh?
