Paper Piecing!!! Core’dinations Cardstock is PERFECT for all your paper piecing needs.  You can find patterns all over the internet

How about this cute little birdie from Paula Gilarde?   Paula used her circle punches to make this cute little guy out of Core Impressions Cardstock. And the woodgrain Cuttlebug embossing folder is the perfect background. Just mount it to a Vintage cardstock base and then just add an SRM sticker and voila! You have a the perfect card.

Look at this amazing card from Linda Beeson.  She used Vintage Cardstock and embossed it with Cuttlebug embossing folders and gently sanded. The base is round and the front of the card is paper pieced.

Our Tuesday Tip comes from our very own Melissa Oliveira. She is sharing this cute pumpkin layout. Take a few minutes and look at the amazing details….the subtle sanding, the embossed paper piecing, the photo mounted with the Vintage cardstock, the scored leaves and the fun paper curls!

ALL this and NO patterned paper. Just gorgeous.

Core’dinations used: Cosmo Cricket and Jillibean Soup Core Impressions, Core Essentials, Vintage Cardstock.

Melissa shared her tip for making the paper curls with us today. Just cut a strip of paper (scraps work really well for this) and curl it around a pencil like this:

Squeeze it fairly tight so it takes shape…

And Voila! You have fun curly piece of paper to add to your projects. AND the sky is the limit with these…you can sand them or even emboss them to add some added texture to your project.

Have a creative day!
