Ellen here with some Core’dinations tips for you using Black Magic and Chocolate Box collections.

We love these two lines so much AND after seeing everyone at CHA loving them, too, we thought it would be fun to share a layout using both collections.

Scoring, sanding, and embossing are SO much fun! Who needs patterned paper?

Fun, huh??

Bonus Day with Scor-Pal

This is the last day of our week with SCOR PAL. Do you have one of these?  Well, if you are a paper craft you better. AND if you love Core, then  you BETTER! Scoring, then sanding with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only way to go. We hope that you have found some new and exciting ways use your Scor-Pal.

Scoring raises the cardstock so you can sand it and release that inner Core. It’s gorgeous AND both design teams are going to show you easy and fabulous ways the Scor Pal products and Core’dinations can add interested to your papercrafting projects.

Did you know we have a Scoring Video?   Check out our Technique videos for some awesome ideas on what you can do with Core, including the scoring video.

PLEASE make sure you check out the Scor Pal blog for some iNcReDiBle designs this week (I think there might be a prize over there 😉 ). They SIMPLY rockYou know we always have something up our sleeve for you when we do these fun blog events so keep commenting for a chance to win some great Core’dinations Cardstock!

Design Team Member April Derrick created this cool envelope for her layout to keep Core Tags with her journaling and some photos. Brilliant!

Lydia layered her tree on a Zigzag  Edge  in the Glitter Silk (very much like a postage stamp shape) (Step 2 Layer from the David Tutera Cardmaking System.

Today we are all about Vintage with Designer Andrea Amu! Here is a little bit about her card:

I used all Tim Holtz Kraft Core here.
Scor-Pal product used includes the Score-Bug tool that I used to create a design of perforations for the blue background, and the 1/4″ score tape that I used to add the red torn edge strip to the card base’s right side edge.  I used the Sand It Gadget to sand over all of the Kraft Core’s scored surface and the torn edge to reveal more of the Kraft color and to add to the worn vintage distressed look.  My cuts were done using the Ashlyn’s Alphabet Cricut cartridge and the ornate tree die cut was embellished with some Diamond Dust glass glitter and Queen & Co. Bling pearls.
And a close up of that cool detail from the Scor Bug!
Don’t forget!   We are sponsoring DAY THREE of  Scrapbook & Cards today’s 12 Days of giveaways. You have until NOON Dec 22nd 2012 to post on their blog HEREto win ONE EACH of our 6×6 collection packs!

Today we have some gorgeous designs from Designer Shaunte Wadley. She created this beautiful flower on the card just by using some simple scoring. The flower is a Lifestyle Crafts die so you could really do this with any flower.

See how Shaunte scores from the back?  That is important so the raised line is on the front of the cardstock. Especially when you are sanding.

And a close-up of it on the card. Keep in mind sanding the Gemstones will take off the shine so you may not want to sand it.

AND Shaunte  created her frame on this card by scoring and using the VERY FUN Scor Bug Embosser!!! It makes these fun dots that look so great sanded.

AND she scored the woodgrain on the branch using some Vintage Cardstock. So you can see all the really amazing details you can get on your projects just by scoring and sanding. The base of the card is Whitewash.

And another card for you from Shaunte using Core Essentials and loads of scoring.

Bling is from Queen & Co and Ribbon is from May Arts.
