Darice Embossing “masks”, Die – Lifestyle Crafts, Embossing Folder – Tim Holtz
Patterened Paper – Pebbles Inc, Letter Roller Stamp – Pebbles Inc, Buttons – Michael’s
Stickles – Tim Holtz
I used Darice’s embossing folder “mask” to create this special cut out instead of using one of your sandwich plates, you can select areas that you don’t emboss.
To the left is the sandwich (minus the paper) and to your right is the resulting effect. I chose to “fill” the hole with another piece of embossed BlackMagic that I cut using the embossing mask to trace the oval. The result is less raised as you put embossed cardstock on flat cardstock (as opposed to two layers of embossed paper).
There is a lot of depth to this card with the fireworks really coming at you! I only adhered the center of the die cut firework sprays thus enabling me to use my finger nail to curl out the “arms”. A little Stickles adds to festivities!

I don’t know about you but we are gearing up for the end of school here. With only less then two weeks left, I need to get busy on some gifts for my kid’s teachers and we hope you have been enjoying the ideas so far this week! You can easily incorporate these with layouts, cards or any paper crafting project.
I love a good gift bag and Debbie Standard as one for us today but that’s not the focal point. She created her own award ribbon using some Spellbinders Scalloped Circle dies! Just die cut them with an embossing machine and then cut them into pieces. Sand and then adhere them in a circular pattern, add some banner strips and you are done!
Today we have some great cards from Debbie Standard that are just perfect for Graduation Day or any upcoming Birthday or Holiday you have. The great thing about Core’dinations is all you need is a little bit of embossing and you have a fabulous card that is quick AND easy!
Some simple die cuts and a stamped sentiment add the perfec touch to this card:
Ava here today to share some Spring cards with you today. Let’s start with a Clean and Simple card. With our pre-embossed cardstock, cards come together very quickly!
The Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions is a great pack of paper to create cards with. Find the pre-printed sentiment on the cardstock sheet, size it to the greeting card size and you can make a quick card without touching any ink.
Sand lightly with your Sand it Gadget and clean your sentiment using the Dust Buddy.
Punch out an embellishment using your Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Silhouette and Embossing punch, SE-E02 Heart Butterfly and add a bit of ribbon. I punched my butterfly from the Spotted Collection, Jillian Vavavoom color.
Ava again here to share with you another Spring card. Spring brings thoughts of new buds and greenery and that is the sign we all look for to indicate the beginning of a wonderful time of year. My CAS card has been embossed using the Couture Creations embossing folderfrom the Fresh & Fun collection, Magical and Sizzix Flourish folder.
Gather some supplies and this CAS card will come together quickly.
I used Core Essentials Pastels Collection pack for this card. Embossed and lightly sanded with my Sand it Gadget. Gently dust off my sanded cardstock with my Dust Buddy and you will reveal the light tones of the inner core.
Stamp your sentiment and image onto a die cut label, adhere with some Helmar’s Zap Dots onto the card to give some dimension to your card. Embellish with some rhinestones and ribbon and your CAS card is ready to go.
