We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long (make sure to comment on every post here for more chances to win).

Today we have Design Team Member Leica Forrest working a super cool canvas! All I gotta say today is that Leica stamped on CORK! How super cool is that?!?!?!  Like I said earlier..everyone needs a large woodgrain stamp like this one from Against the Grain from Sweet STamp  shop!

Add some Petaloo beauties and you have a gorgeous canvas perfect for any teacher’s room. Leica added a touch of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions Label paper from the Brown and Cream line for any notes or quotes you may want to add. Don’t forget to sand ;)

How about some Cut & Emboss cards? If you haven’t seen our Cut & Emboss specialty packs then you must! Just the perfect pack to have in your scrap supplies, especially if you are a carddmaker.

Today we have Design Team Member Andrea Amu with a fabulously layered card…here is a little bit about her project…

The Sweet Stamp Shop set that I got to work with was the “School’s Out”.  I used the apple border stamp to create an “all over” pattern on a piece of the turquoise Cut & Emboss 4.25 x 5.5 cardstock whichI layered onto a black Kraft 6″ square card base.  I used paper Petaloo flowers to coordinate along with the Core and the chevron May Arts ribbon.  My die cuts were created using Cricut’s Country Life cartridge.

And a close up..again…LOVING how our team thinks outside the box and uses the black in on the colored cardstock. And don’t be afraid to layer those Petaloo flowers!

And we have another card Design Team Member Lydia Jackson.  Nothing beats a thank you card for that perfect teacher. We all need to keep these on for sure. And, again, Lydia used some cardstock from the Darks Cut & Emboss cardstock pack. PERFECT for cardmakers! And see that cute little apple? Lydia cut the petals of her flower and used them for the apple leaves. Brilliant!

Today, Day Two, we have Shaunte Wadley working some skills on a fun little treat box and soda treat that is sure to get any kid an “A” with their teacher! Shaunte used the School’s Out Stamp set from SSS…anyone that has kids in school NEEDS this stamp!

And some fabulous details of the Petaloo flower (they core’dinate so well, don’t they???)  and Sweet Stamp Shop stamps…

and Shaunte used Spectrum Noir markers to do the coloring. They are beautiful and smooth and just so easy to use.

DAY ONE!

Please note we updated this post with some directions for you on how to make this cute little project!

We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY!  No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.

Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep  in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).

Today Design Team Member Char Dobson created this desktop calendar that is perfect for any teacher gift. Char used Cardinal cardstock that matches the Petaloo flowers and the Sweet Stamp Shop Against the Grain stamp set.  Don’t be afraid to stamp on that colored cardstock!!! Everyone needs a large woodgrain stamp, don’t you think?

Here are a few more shots for you…See how Char added a little Graphic 45 Signature Series Cardstock along the bottom?

See you tomorrow!

Want to make this for yourself?  Here’s the basic instructions for the calendar – if you have ever made an easel card; it is the same idea.

Cut a piece of Core’dinations cardstock 6″ x 12″ and fold in half. Then fold one end towards the center. This is the easel base. Cut a Core’dinations cardstock mat at 6″ x 4″ and a decorative piece for stamping or embossing at 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. Embellish as desired. Adhere mat to the long piece of cardstock that was folded in so that the bottoms line up (refer to first photo in the blog post if you’re not sure about this). The tiny piece I have under the sticky note pad is 6″ x 1″, and I got the printable calendar pages here:http://www.asensoft.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/two-months-blank-calendar-template-723×1024.jpg

Don’t forget…only ONE MORE WEEK

Okay one more week and a day ;)
Calling all Cardmakers … Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is looking for Card Designers!
Please Note…we edited with some answers to your questions.
We are looking for talented and dedicated cardmakers that can not only create cards but other projects that can show the creative use of pre-made card bases (like our Core Cards that are pre-cut and scor’d. Think about it like this: if we sent you a pack of our Core Cards what would you do with them? ), die cuts, and embellishments. We are looking for cards that use all kinds of die cuts…tags, labels, scalloped pieces, hearts, stars etc. Any design, whether you cut it with your own machine or if it is pre-made is fine (so don’t worry if you do not have a die cutting machine you will not need one if chose as part of the team).
- Step One: Design and then post three projects in one posting on your personal blog on or before Friday August 10th at 12:00pm EST titled “Core Cards Creative Frenzy” Keep in mind we are looking for paper crafters that specialize in cardmaking and that can showcase pre-made card bases and die cuts with cards and other unique projects.  Feel free to include step out photos or step-by-step instructions of any techniques that you used that you feel need highlighting as we are looking for our designers to be able to create tutorials in PDF format on occasion.
- Step Two: Send us an email with a link to this exact blog posting to  coredt@coredinations.com. Please ensure the link is to “Core Cards Creative Frenzy” posting and not just a link to your blog. It makes it much easier to find, especially if you post frequently on your blog. Please include in your email your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address. Also include a resume of your publications and current design team obligations (if applicable).
- We are also looking for designers that are comfortable creating how-to videos and tutorials as well so please let is us know if this interests you (camera and compensation will be provided).
- If you have any questions about the application process and/or design team requirements, be sure to post them on the Core’dinations’ Facebook page  or on this post as they may be questions that several applicants would like answered or email Ellen at ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com. New projects or the use of Core’dinations Cardstock is not required but if you have some Core’dinations and would like to create something brand new we would love to see it!
Requirements will be comparable to other papercrafting companies  and  Core’dinations will compensate with ample  product as well as monetary compensation for special projects.  Ideally we are looking for designers that have blogs to help with promotional activities (only on occasion) but this is not a requirement so please feel free to send us a link to an online gallery, flickr account, etc.
And, yes of course! International Applicants are welcome!
So why not share a card today in the spirit of cardmaking?!
Design Team member Shaunte Wadley made this gorgeous card using Core’dinations Whitewash and some Petaloo flowers that are dyed to match our papers perfectly!

More May Arts goodies in here!

As you know we are having some FUN this week!  Check out the May Arts blog here for more chances to win and head over to their Facebook page because there will be some fun stuff going on, too!  You know we always give something away! So comment all week long on ANY blog post (up to five chances to win)  or on our Facebook page! Since we hit 6k likes last week we are in it to win it for 7k!!!!
