‘Tis the Season for Weddings!

Not sure about you but wedding season is in full swing for us in the summer and today Designer Gail Linder has some gorgeous engagement cards for you today.  Gail mixes and matches our cardstock brilliantly! Glitter Silk and Chocolate Box?  Fabulous!

Here is a little bit about these gorgeous cards from Gail:

I’ve had a couple of family members announce engagements recently so I created a couple of cards to celebrate the good news! I started by choosing a gorgeous card from the Chocolate Box collection and cutting a couple of designs out from my Cameo. In the end I settled on the fun sunburst and polaroid and went from there!
For the blue card, I chose the background from the Gemstone collection as the gave it an elegant feel. I’ve embossed the background and adhered my sanded polaroid over the top with pop dots, adding some patterned paper and a red Gemstone card underneath the cut out pieces.
Similarly, behind the sanded sunburst (be careful sanding the fine frame) I used a pink Glittersilk card to add a bit of elegance. The leaves were die cut from Gemstone cardstock also and the project was completed with the fun pink flower!
I added the same greeting to both cards, stamped on a Core Bookmark which I then trimmed with the banner ends. The white bookmark card was so wonderful to stamp on!
So there you have two card designs, made into elegant engagement cards by using specialty cardstock but imagine the same designs in different colors for any occasion!

First up today we have some fun stuff for  you.

We are sponsoring a giveaway over at Cookin’ Up Creations!  Would you love to win this???   Check out the Forum HERE and how to win HERE!

So we have some more ideas for you for Father’s Day. Love this idea from Jennifer Edwardson…it can be used for ANY occasion…at tri-fold card! Of course, it is full of tons and tons of gorgeous Core’dinations Cardstock!

Here is a little bit about this project from Jennifer:

I am pretty new to the Silhouette game but have been having so much fun finding new pieces to cut out and turn into great projects !! I loved this folding card and thought it would be great to add a couple of photos to as a gift…..It would look so cute on a shelf, mantle or bedside table too !!


I cut the base using the Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (No.23) and then ran either end thru my die cutting machine with swirly embossing folder. Then I sanded off the top layer to show the kraft underneath as well as the edges of the base too. I cut a few more doilies out as well and embossed both sides of the same cardstock and sanded off the top layer to those as well.


I punched a few flowers from some of the Core Essentials that coordinated with my photos and layered all the pieces together finishing them off with a little circle punched from my fave Core Couture in Black Tie. I added a couple of Core Couture butterflies and some clear gems from the David Tutera Celebrate collection too !! I really love how this all came together and can’t wait to give this to the kids’ grandparents :)

Happy Dad’s Day Card

Looking for a really fun and handsome Father’s Day Card? The great thing about Core is that you can add ANY kind of texture to the cardstock with different embossing folders. Plaid, polka dots…sky is the limit! The different textures really make this card because they remind of the patterns of the shirt and tie, don’t you agree?
Keep on reading to see how Mary Pat Siehl created this awesome card….
Here is a little bit about this card from Mary Pat:
I cut the base of the card using my Silhouette. Then I used Core’dinations Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collections and cut it out to match the base of my card.  The I ran the Faded Jeans cardstock in my embossing folder and lightly sanded to show the pattern.  I cut my tie using the Scattered Straw cardstock then ran it  through another embossing folder and lightly sanded that.  Finally I stamped my sentiment and lightly inked the edges with the Tim Holtz faded Jeans distress ink.  Don’t you just love how this awesome Tim Holtz collection  matches the inks?  I know I do!

I love this color combo. This would be a great birthday present to win, since today is my birthday :)

So today we have layers and layers from Mary Pat Siehl.

First here is a little bit about Mary Pat:

My name is Mary Pat Siehl.  I am an avid paper crafter,  stamper, and card maker. I have been paper crafting for over 12 years.  It truly is a passion of mine.  I would descirbe my style as clean and simple, but this is not to say my style is boring.  I love to layer my papers and add all types of embellishments.  I love adding different textures to my layouts.   I am married to a wonderful man who totally supports my addiction to paper crafting. I have 2 boys  who keep me totally on the run and having fun. I am a high school teacher by day,  and I am in  my 24th year of teaching.  I live in beautiful Springboro, Ohio.  If I am not scrapping I am either hanging out with my 3 favorite guys or on the tennis courts.

Now Mary Pat’s layout..for more design inspiration make sure you check out her blog HERE!

I loved this idea of a bio layout.  I rarely make pages about myself.  I love using negative space so I used my Silhouette and cut out the thought bubbles.  I then backed them with sanded core’dinations cardstock.  I then made a border by scoring the outer edges and lightly sanded it.  I then lightly sanded the base cardstock to give it a slightly distressed feel.  Next, I cut out my title and once again lightly sanded it and then added my photo.  I then added some of my favorite embellishments at the moment.
