We are SO excited to introduce you to this amazing cardstock that is SO PERFECT for cardmakers that looove to color with markers. It  blends beautifully and is a nice heavy duty cardstock. 
Hi Everyone! Mary Pat Siehl here! I LOVE to make winter cards and with Core’dinations cardstock they are just so easy and so darn cute!

For this card I started with some Core Essentials Pastels and embossed it and then lightly sanded it.  I love making snow banks and with this card I wanted a little bling so I tore some Core Couture Glitter.  I stamped my sentiment directly on the cardstock.  I then stamped my winter image on the 110 lb. smooth Core’dinations cardstock and colored the image using my Spectrum Noir markers.  This new cardstock is so PERFECT for stamping and coloring!  I pop dotted the image on the snow banks.
Supplies:
cardstock- Core’dinations 110 smooth Cardstock and Core Essentials and Core Couture
stamps- Some Odd Girl
markers- Spectrum Noir
Sizzix embossing folders
Sand it
Dust Buddy
ink- Hero Arts. Memento
Hello

For this card I started with my Core’dinations cardstock and embossed it.  I then added some Perfect Pearls dots to add just a hint more snow.  I used the Core’dinations Neutral cardstock to make my tree and snow banks. For my tree I cut the cardstock using the Silhouette and then sanded it just to give it that distressed look.  I stamped my bird image on the 110 lb. smooth Core cardstock and cut it out and pop dotted it on a branch.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment.
Supplies:
cardstock- Core’dinations Core Essentials
stamps- Paper Smooches
markers- Spectrum Noir

Once again I started with some Core’dinations Pastel cardstock.  I heat embossed various snowflakes and then added some Perfect Pearls dots as well.  I created the snow banks using the Core Essentials.  I tore the cardstock to give it that great look.  I then stamped, colored and cut out some snowmen using the 110 lb. smooth cardstock. I have to say this cardstock totally ROCKS if you are a stamper and alcohol marker user!

First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I think is is the beautiful rich colors that are all around!  Core and Authentique are such a great pairing becuse of the beautful textures and colors that both companies have.  For today I made a fall layout with the new collection from Authentique and I paired it up with some Core Amour and Core Impressions Jillibean Soup.  The colors really mixed well and the texture it provided just made the layout!
