Aren’t you? But of course in a good way! Today we have some projects from Designer Vivian Keh. This first card is so cool! It takes paper tearing to an entirely new level. And Vivian mixes and matched all kinds of Core…some Spotted, Core Essentials and Vintage.
Hello, friends! Vivian Keh on the Core blog today with a happy card using cardstocks from a number of different Core’dinations collections. I’ve been having so much fun simply tearing our lovely color core cardstock for fast texture in papercrafted projects! I tore several strips of Core for the right side of my card and tucked a simple sleeve behind the torn pieces to house a cute die-cut tag which slides out. Just about all the elements were sanded because I am in love the distressed result and how beautifully sanding brings out Core edges and embossing.
And a cute close up of the pocket.

Hope you are ready for a GREAT weekend! Today we have some great layouts from Designer Mary Pat Siehl. Here is a littl bit about these projects from Mary herself.
I love trying new techniques and Core Cardstock is just so perfect for everything. I love how it handles the different types of medium. For my project I first sanded the Spotted Cardstock. I then applied a light amount of paint. I then tore the cardstock to expose the Core. I then cut several embellishments using my Silhouette out of the Core and I lightly sanded them. ( I don’t know about you but I love making my own embellies!). Finally I added some of the new Smooth Core Tags. I am really addicted them right now!

Debbie used loads of Core’dinations Core Essentials, Black Magic and Spotted Cardstock. Love those banner ribbons along the bottom in the May Arts ribbon? So pretty! Coutre Creations products are Fresh and Fun embossging folders and the Fantasia Doily dies (these are gorgeous!!!!).
And Designer Mary Pat Siehl created a fresh winter card for us today as well using some Whitewash and doesn’t the sanding with the Couture Creations Super Powder Puff embossing folder look amazing!? And she accented it with some gemstones, too! Don’t forget about the Couture Creations double sided foam mounting tape…perfect for that dimension on the sentiment.
Here’s a little bit about this card from Mary Pat:
When I saw the embossing folder (Super Powder Puff) my Core brain immediately thought of the Whitewash collection. I thought the two would be perfect together for a nice winter type card. I embossed the cardstock and then lightly sanded it to bring out the beautiful blue color. I then stamped my sentiment on matching cardstock and attached it to my card. I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to the card so I added some sparkle twine and some huge bling gems. I love the soft look.

So I was going through some blog posts looking for something and found this project from Ava Gavloski that never posted! This is such a gorgeous idea for that special graduate in your life! I have a freind going to a graduation party this week so hoping we aren’t too late for you.
Here’s what Ava has to say about creating this awesome project:
Are you getting ready for that Graduation Party? Plan ahead and check out your Core’dinations Cardstock to see if you have some color tones that will match the school colors. Try the de-embossed look to your front card panel, sanding lightly give the card a vintage feel. To stamp a clear image on the glitter paper, ink your stamp, lay your stamp face up and then lay your paper onto the stamp and gentle rub your glitter cardstock over the inked stamp image. This technique should give you a clear impression of your image on the glitter cardstock. This card design allows you to use up small bits and pieces from your core stash with the baner and star embellishments.
Dust off that crimper, find some embossing folders that speak to you and get creative with a few layers of your favorite Core’dinations cardstock. Layers are the secret to volume and a feel good texture. So, join me and make that gift bag with layers of Core cardstock that will be a wow the gift presentation.
Here are some detail shots on the gift bag:
And the fun centerpiece! Love how that Core Couture shines!
