SHE SCORS!

Well…not the scoring you might see at a football game…but the FUN kind of SCORING! We highlighted scoring yesterday on the blog and I just happen to come across a few more amazing examples of how to SCOR with CORE ;)

We love love to scor here at Core. If you haven’t scor’d before than PLEASE check out our Technique Videos here. LOADS of inspiration and REMEMBER to scor from the BACK of your Core so when you sand the front with your Sand It Gadget, that gorgeous core shines through.

First up we have a layout from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson. Lydia created her own design here just by scoring! You can create a patchwork design like this and the outline around the layout to frame it, too. SO easy yet SO much impact.

Lydia used Tim Holtz Kraft Core as her base and some Core Essentials and added some great details from Jillibean Soup.

And design Team Member Melissa Oliveira used this month’s Colour Lover’s Inspiration palette for this layout. See how Melissa used scoring to frame the layers of the layout? Gorgeous gorgeous! I cannot  tell you how easy this technique is and how much impact it can have on your layouts with Core’dinatons Colorcore Cardstock!

Here is a little about scoring from Melissa, “Scoring is my favorite way to add some extra visual interest without added bulk or additional layers.”  I AGREE, do you?

And Melissa used her Petaloo flowers that match Core PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!

And a Spellbinder’s Die for the shape…

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program? We sure do! We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers. How easy is that???

Today we have a variety of projects for you.

First up Design Team Member Kim Jeffress with a gorgeous wall hanging. There is nothing like some warm fall colors to brighten up any room.

This project is the perfect example of the Core’dinations and Petaloo color matching program.

And how much do you love  the colors of this card from Design Team Member Char Dobson???  Gorgeous gorgeous! I just love Core. You know why?  Because you can emboss it on your own or use the Core Impressions like Char did on this card. She embossed a piece of Core Essentials in orange and then used a piece of BasicGrey in Mantis on the bottom.  Again…the flowers match perfectly!

And Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira has another fun Fall project for us. She altered a bucket she had lying around the house with some beautiful details. Melissa used her Spellbinders dies in addtion to May  Arts Ribbon and Petaloo flowers. The great thing about these flowers is that you can color them!  Melissa used Tim Holtz Distress ink on the flowers because they were a little bright for the  fall color scheme. Again, just perfect for ANY project.

And Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this soft and feminine layout for us today. Nothing screams little girl like pink , flowers and ribbon! The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions.

Today we have a special treat for you from Design Team Member Andrea Amu. THIS is how you work Black Magic Cardstock. Just sayin’ ;)

And some close-ups. Add some Petaloo flowers and May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous project. Andrea also used a piece  of Tillie Spotted Core’dinations behind the frame.  For the floss-like fibers used in the button ties, Andrea pulled apart the May Arts cording… discarded the white fiber-fill from the inside and just used the flossy threads. COOL!

And one more…

Now, did you notice the title of this post?  I said “TREE” instead of THREE…and you will see why.

First up we have just the coolest card ever from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. I mean….a ribbon tree???  Yes! It’s ribbon, flower and cardstock (Core Essentials to be specific ;) ) heaven here! That is all you need to create gorgeous projects.

And speaking of cool trees…..

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson made a tree out of flowers. How cool is that!?  Looks awesome…such a great way to  use up those flowers in your stash. And Lydia used ribbon, patterned paper and cardstock (Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Collection) on this layout seemlessly.

Here is a close-up of that tree….LOVE the star out of some Core Whitewash that Lydia sanded.

And here we have a layout from Design Team Member April Derrick. How awesome is that sanded Tim Holtz Kraft-Core????

From the ribbon banners to the flowers off the page…such a festive and FUN layout!
