 Friends Owlways Faux Wood Crate Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D Wooden Crate from Core’dinations Tillie Dot Cardstock and Core’dinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection Cardstock.  These are the pieces that make up the box.

Step 2. Emboss the top layer pieces using the Darice Wood Grain embossing folder.  I used Core’dinations Tillie Dot cardstock for the main part of the box.

Step 3. After embossing, sand the raised areas.  It really brings out the texture!

Step 1. Cut the lantern pieces using Core’dinations Bright Color cardstock along with solid black, vellum and black spotted Tillie Dot using your favorite electronic die cut machine.

Step 2. Emboss and sand all of the orange pieces and the black Spotted Tillie Dot spider using the Core’dinations Sand It Gadget.

Step 3. After embossing and sanding the pieces, I ran them through the Xyron 9″ Creative Station and the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker.  Those machines helped me quickly add adhesive to the panel pieces.

Step 4. I used a liquid adhesive to help me adhere the vellum to the inside of the lantern.  By the way, that vellum cut without a problem in my Silhouette Cameo.  YAY!Haunted Lantern by Joy of JoysLife.com

Step 5.  Assemble the lantern and spider. Add two Darice Self Stick Gems to create eyes for the spider.  Spooky!

Back to School 3D Pencil and Card

Hi everyone!  I’m Joy and today I’m super happy to be sharing this project with you using Core’dinations great products!

Supplies:

Step 1: Cut the pencil 3D and card shapes using Core’dinations Neutrals and Bright Color cardstock along with solid black and white.  They cut so well!  A little side note: At first I cut the pencil card background in white but later I went back and cut it out in grey to match the band near the eraser of the 3D pencil.  I thought that just looked better color-wise to match both project pieces.

Step 2: Emboss the pencil pieces as desired.  Here, I’m using the wood grain background folder.

Step 3:  Sand the pieces using the Core’dinations Sand It Gadget.  That revealed a lighter color yellow on these pieces.  That’s so cool!

Step 4: Adhere the pieces.  I used my Xyron machine to add adhesive to the backs of these pieces.  Then I added them to the pencil.

Isn’t all that sanded texture great?!

Step 5:  Create a tag.  I cut a small tag from the Core’dinations Bright Assorted Tags even smaller and backed it with a piece of Core’dinations black cardstock.

Step 6:  Stamp a sentiment.  Keep in mind that stamping on textured paper can give an uneven stamped image.  You can fill in any spotty places with a marker.  I did!

Step 7:  Sand the tag and tie ribbon to finish the look.

That huge roll of Smarties can fit into the 3D pencil!

So who is ready for Valentines Day? We have been working over time here at Core’dinations getting ready to bring out the lover in all of us.  We hope you can find some great ideas for your family and friends over the next few weeks just in time for February 14th. There is nothing better than a handmade gift for someone you love.

Starting off the Inspiration du jour is Melissa Oliviera with the cutest little treat bag ever!

And with the same soft colour palette she made this cute box filled with Valentine Cards. This would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower, too! The touch of the Chocolate Box cardstock is perfect!

What goes great with Valentine’s Day? Chocolate Mocha does! We are gearing up for the big day in February already.

Debbie Standard created this adorable card utilizing some of the very versatile Chocolate Mocha cardstock from the Core Essentials line.

Some subtle sanding and a Cuttlebug embossing folder makes this card wonderful and unique at the same time.
