Mary Pat here with you today and it seems like winter is back and it is going to be a long cold winter! Here in Ohio where I live it has been really cold and I love to send little notes in the mail to warm up my friends! So I made this fun and easy winter mitten card.
For my project I took a Silhouette image and turned it into a shaped card. I love shaped cards because I think they are just so darn fun and cute! I really wanted to use a variety of Core on this card. I used The Chocolate Box collection, The Vintage collection, Core Essentials, and Core Couture (Everyone needs a little bling, right?). I also had to include some stamping for a super cute sentiment.
Winter Mitten Card Supplies:
- Coredinations Cardstock- Core Couture, Core Essentials, The Vintage Collection, The Chocolate Box
- Sand It Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Some Odd Girl Stamps
- Jenni Bowlin Ink
- Silhouette Cut File
- Darice Embossing Folder
I made a video for you. I demonstrate the techniques of embossing and sanding. Enjoy!
Thanks for joining me today. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann with you today to share a project that reminds me of Winter fun here on the East Coast of Canada. We have an outdoor speed skating track here and every year during the holidays there are thousands of people skating on the track and which got me to thinking… why not make an ice skate!
here is a closer look at the detail…and because I wanted to create a “girlie” figure skate I had to include a pretty handmade flower on it!
3D Ice Skate Supplies:
- Core’dinations Spotted Cardstock
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Neutrals Cardstock
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy,
- Ice Skate From The Winter Gazebo SVG Kit
- Ribbon and Brads From My Stash
- Tombow Liquid Adhesive
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1. Cut out all your pieces in the cut file in the colors you desire. For a figure skate White works best but you could use any color you want.
Step 2. Sand the pieces for the base on both sides using your Sand It Gadget and don’t forget to clean up with your dust buddy! An easier way to keep your work area a little cleaner is to sand the pieces on a piece of printer paper!
Step 3. For detailed assembly of the ice skate, the creator of the cut file has a good tutorial here so be sure to check it out.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!

The holidays are coming quick Core fans and today I am going to share with you a couple of ideas for Christmas cards to share with your loved ones! Embossing folders always make for beautiful projects but today I am going to show you how you can take them a step further and add some fabulous dimension!
Christmas Card Supply List:
- Core’dinations Cardstock Neutrals
- Core’dinations Cardstock Darks
- Ivory A2 Cards & Envelopes
- 6 X 6 Glitter Silk Cardstock
- Darice Tree Embossing Folder
- Darice Upside Down Santa Embossing Folder
For the first card I am going to show you how using a craft knife and doing some simple cutting can really change the look of the embossed card.
Step 1: Emboss cardstock with tree and sand it. Add it to a cardstock base.
Step 2: Use a craft knife to cut along the bottom of each layer of tree branches so that you can curl them upward.
Step 3: Embellish with gold glitter, wooden stars, and a bow.
Step 4: Cut a strip of coordinating cardstock and add it to a matching envelope.
My second card uses a similar technique but adds an element of fun!
Step 1: Die cut a sentiment from white cardstock and emboss the upside down Santa onto the scarlet cardstock.
Step 2: Sand the embossing and add white glitter to Santa’s legs and the snow.
Step 3: Use a craft knife to cut out the bottom three sides of the chimney.
Step 4: Embellish with punched and wooden stars.
I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t smile if a card like this showed up in their mailbox!
Hi everyone, It’s Joann with you today to share a fun Christmas project. This week Core’dinations and Graphic 45 are doing a blog hop, stop by and check it out for a chance to win some great prizes. With the Christmas season fast approaching I remembered one of my favorite traditions. Every year the family goes to see the local production of the Nutcracker so I dug out my G45 Nutcracker paper collection and this is what I came up with.
Graphic 45 Wall Art Supplies:
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Slippers From Clara’s Christmas Eve SVG Kit By SVGCUTS
- 3d Shadow Box Item number 26046, 26048 and 26049 From The Silhouette Store
- Graphic 45 Nutcracker Paper Collection
- Ribbon From My Stash
- Liquid Adhesive
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps:
Step 1. Cut all of your pieces out in the paper you choose. I used a White card stock.
Step 2. Assemble your shadow boxes. Each of the boxes except for the largest one is 2 pieces the same size so matching them up is easy.
Step 3. Attach the largest frame to the front panel and then start attaching the individual shadow boxes starting in a corner and working your way out.
Step 4. Once all the shadow boxes have been attached, fasten on the back panel.
Step 5. Cut a piece of your Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions and using your Sand It Gadget, sand all the panels to show off that lovely embossing. Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust! Once you are finished your sanding attach the pieces to the front of the assembled unit and start decorating!
