We normally do our Tutorials on Tuesday BUT in honor of Earth Day we have a really great project from Designer Lydia Jackson using her Core. For this project Lydia used the BRAND NEW Graphic 45 lights collection. The colors of this line are beautiful.
Last week Lydia posted this layout where she printed directly on her cardstock. Once she printed it, she realized that it was too small so it went into the scrap pile.
Hmmm..what to do …what to do? Well, her to crafty little guys figured it out! Punch it, emboss it and then sand it for the perfect card!

Welcome to our Second Day of our week with Stampendous! We couldn’t be more excited than to share gorgeous projects with you featuring Core’dinations and Stamendous products all week long!
We love Stampendous and their products so make sure you do a few things for us while you are here this week.
And we have a blog hop for you, too!
Here is a list to hop along…make sure you do as we are giving away prizes ALL WEEK LONG for those that are commenting and having fun. There are chances to win every day on one of these blogs from BOTH companies!
Sorry about the technical difficulties with Lydia Jackson’s blog yesterday. That was my fault SO we are letting you comment on her blog again today for a chance to win to make up for it…hope that works!!!
And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira. You MUST check out the details on this layout. I know we were going for a bit of a fall theme here this week but Melissa just couldn’t stop and had to pull out her favorite Stampendous stamp, the Stampendous Jumbo Magnolia cling stamp.
Here is a little bit about this layout from Melissa: To create the pieced flower, I stamped the flower image three times; twice on a lightly sanded piece of whitewash and once on a piece of core’dinating Gemstones Cardstock. One of the Whitewash stamped images was embossed using an embossing folder, and the other was trimmed and used as the base for the flower embellishment. Petals were cut from the embossed and Gemstone stamped flowers and layered over the matching petals on the base flower. I added some Queen&Co. pearls to the center of the layered flower for added interest and texture. Leaves were stamped onto a piece of BasicGrey Core impressions and layered beneath the completed flower.
How about that for some stamping?! Gorgeous. Gorgeous!

See you tomorrow!
