It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, yes it has been for a few weeks now but only FIVE days left until Christmas..can you believe it?

Today we have Designer Kim Moreno working some of her Core magic….ENJOY!

I just love the Tillie Dot paper and knew that it would make a cute and quick Christmas card so I went punch happy and put together this card in a snap! I punched 8 stars from the green cardstock and one from the yellow and sanded them each carefully with my Coredinations sanding block and arranged them on the Snowflake cardstock, that I tore along the bottom, in a tree shape. I then added jewels and a sticker to complete my card.

Supplies:
Coredinations: Spotted Tillie Dot (Scarlet, Tillie Tulip, Tillie Shamrock), Core Essentials (Snowflake, Bon Bon)
Queen and Co jewels
Marvy Uchida star punch
Sticker unknown

And Debbie Standard has some tags for us today, too! Take a good look at these beauties…there is SO much detail on them! Here is what Debbie has to say when it comes to creating with Core Tags:
I used some of the new smooth tags from Core’dination’s for these Christmas tags.  I started out stamping on my tag, then I used some clear embossing powder and dried it with a Paper Studio Embossing Heat Tool.  Then I played with some mists – using various ones.  Once done I picked some Christmas stamps and stamped my sentiment on them.  I added a May Arts Ribbon to finish them off.

AND we have a layout from Gail Lindner today, too! Such a great layout with a non-traditional feel with the color palette!

Something I look forward to at Christmas is my kids’ visiting and getting their photo taken with Santa. I love the growing collection I have, seeing how fast they are growing up and realizing that next year there will be an extra one in the photo! Eeek!

Recently I scrapped last year’s photo, and wanted to keep to a soft, pastel color scheme.

 

Meeting-Santa

I used only cardstock from the Core’dinations Whitewash collection – I’ve been just a bit obsessed with it lately! But I love the soft colors it gives and how effective just a little bit of sanding is.

You can see in the close up photo below how the edge shows the core color so easily.

Meeting-Santa-cu

For the panel down the bottom of the layout, I used a star punch to layer shapes punched out of the same cardstock. But with that little sand around the edges they really POP!

Now to work on this year’s photo!

Hello Core’dinations fans!  Vivian here today to share with you an elegant floral card using a muted palette of Core’dinations Cardstock.  I used a warm beige from the Core’dinations Jenni Bowlin “Everyday” Collection for my card base, sanding the decorative leaf pattern already conveniently pre-embossed in this cardstock.  I layered an elegant grey from the Neutral Collection that I had embossed with a great Sizzix embossing folder.  For the blossom, I die-cut and sanded the pieces for nice shabby appeal, piercing with a simple brad to hold the bloom together.  To finish, I added a bit of distress ink on all pieces, some bling and pretty seam binding.

Need a wedding card?  Look no further!

I love the aqua/ chocolate brown color pairing in just about everything, from papercrafts to home decor – both fresh and comforting.  For today’s project, I used Core’dinations Fancy Pants Designs”Refreshed” Collection, which delivers that comforting chocolate embossed in a variety of designs as well as your pick of pretty pastels that are also pre-embossed. This makes for great papercrafted projects in a variety of themes. 
VivianKehCoredinationsLoveCard_A
I sanded all the layers and die-cuts and added distress ink to the edges. The sentiment was stamped using watermark ink and then heat embossed with embossing powder.  Just a little bit of embellishment and this card was done.

Sizzix – Bigz Die “Butterflies and Labels”

Tim Holtz – Distress Ink
Fiskars – Floral Punch
Stampendous – “Champagne” Embossing Powder
Versamark – Watermark Ink
Really Reasonable Ribbon – Lace
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And nothing finishes up better than a layout, don’t you agree?
VivianKehCoredinationsLayout_A
 I chose several bold colors from Core’dinations Darks Collection, which have great grounding colors that are perfect for masculine projects.  As you can see in the detail shot, there is so much easy interest one can create with Core – die-cut it, paper-punch it, sand it, tear it, emboss it, crimp it, distress it, stamp it.  All of these were used in this layout. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!  
VivianKehCoredinationsLayout_BThe story of how my husband and I met is really special.  And both of us still can’t believe how serendipitous our meeting truly was.  Hence, the “when pigs fly” stamping on my background, using the great kraft side of our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Cardstock with a simple black ink. His smile, and humorous personality brought levity to the rather challenging moment in our lives captured here on film. I simply layered a bunch of Core elements on top of a piece of old book paper, topping off with a little bling and some scrunched up mulberry paper that I had misted.  

Supplies:
Core’dinations – Darks Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Venetian Lace (Cream Color), Sand-It Gadget, Dust Buddy
Darice – Dominoes Embossing Folder
Sizzix – Chip Block Alphabet Strip Die, Washer Border Strip Die
