Airbrushed Core’dinations Christmas Card

Good Monday Morning! We have a fun little treat for everyone this week. We are working with Stampendous Stamps for the next three days. It’s what we like to call a “mini” hop.  Our teams have whipped up some fabulous Holiday creations just for YOU this week and, of course, we have a giveaway, too! One lucky winner will receive our infamous Chalk Core Prize pack so click HERE for more details on that.

Suzanna here today to share with you a Christmas card I created using a Dreamweaver metal stencil and some Stampendous stamps in addition to, of course, Core’dinations cardstock. I used the stencil for some airbrushing and then just simply stamped my sentiment right over top of it. The Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Cardstock Number 12 is the perfect shade of green for this Holiday season.

These metal stencils are great not only for embossing but to be used as a mask as well. I added color via my Tim Holtz Spritzer Tool as shown above. Then mask off your red and move the stencil to apply a green leaf or two for contrast. Wanting a bit more contrast and sparkle, it is a Christmas card after all, I flicked some gold mist on top of the flower.

Sentiments from Stampendous’ Tis the Season stamp set are the perfect sentiments for any Christmas card! Embossing really adds some more texture to the card and pops the sentiment so that it stands out a bit more from your artwork.

You can see really see the gold mist here and how much it adds to the card.

The Tim Holtz Shattered green cardstock mimics the veins of the poinsetta leaves for some more interest as well!

Masking with our NEW 110lb Smooth Cardstock

May 16, 2014 by  
Filed under Core Blog

Get out those stencils! We are working them today with Suzanna Lee and our 110 lb White Cardstock found in our Core Basics line.

If you’re into mixed media and/or stamping and are looking for THE cardstock to use on your layouts or cards that doesn’t warp, look no further! Core’dinations NEW 110lb premium cardstock is JUST what you’re looking for! It is my go to cardstock!

110lb_Layout_SuzannaLee

110lb_Close2_SuzannaLee

The Tim Holtz floral mask was the perfect compliment to my Chinese New Year layout. I rubbed my VersaMark ink pad over the stencil and cardstock then liberally sprinkled clear embossing powder. After heat setting the powder, I layed down laters of color with my Gelatos. A spritz or two of water here and there, a finger that dragged the color around and the above is the finished effort. And most importantly, my paper stayed flat! Even with the heat gun! Amazing!

That little guy was also stamped on Core’dinations 110 lb white cardstock! Hand colored and fussy cut before being adhered to his life long background!
