Each manufacturer’s blog has multiple prizes and we have a surprise DT blog that we will be picking a winner from as well.  I will be giving hints all week long as to whose blog it is. ;) Might be here…might be Facebook…

Core’dinations AND May Arts winners will receive a roll of May Arts ribbon of their choice AND some Core Tags (see below)!  (Colors of the tags may vary due to availability) AND Stampendous THREE prize packages that include a Jumbo Butterfuly Trio stamp set, Perfectly Clear Handle, some David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system goodies, a Sand It Gadget AND some May Arts ribbon…what??!?  All that is up for grabs this week!


Stampendous, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, and Ranger Distress Stains

WE ARE STILL GOING STRONG WITH THE CROP!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT! Make sure you check out the Master Challenge List HERE.

Did you know that our friends over at Stampendous have a very fun challenge for us for our Hard Core {Holiday} Crop??

Check it out HERE. All you need is some Core and stamps!!!! And the winner will get a pack of our Darks Collection pack. The rich tones of this cardstock is PERFECT for this time of year.

Designer April Derrick has a layout for us! Stampendous has the CUTEST and FUNNIEST sentiments for Holidays like this Tinsel one that April used.  And she always ROCKS the Ranger and we all know how great the Distress Inks and stains go well with kraft.

Products used:

Core: Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions, Core Tags
Stampendous Products: Boss Gloss, Shabby Pink Pastel Embossing Enamel, Glitter, Cling Poinsettia Background stamp, & Cling Tinsel Tangle Stamp
Queen & Co., Twinkle Goosebumps, Twinkle Motifs, Pearls

* Tinsel tip 1: I sanded over the embossed words just a little, and then I stained them with Ranger’s Distress Stain. I gently wiped the excess stain off with a paper towel and repeated the process once more to darken the color. As you can see from this layout, the Kraft-Core from the Nostaglia line and the Seasonal Impressions core’dinate perfectly!

* Tinsel tip 2: I used a damp paint brush to apply Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions cardstock and then I quickly dropped some fine snow white glitter from Stampendous all over it. It dries in no time flat and then you have super sparkly embossed cardstock!

And just one more close up for you to get all this goodness :)

Especially our Core Tags..they ROCK!

And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira.

For this layout, I used the Cling Decorative Grate CRR145 stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it onto Snowflake core, stamping the image twice with each inking, creating one dark image and one lighter image. I trimmed the images from the cardstock and layered two light and one dark image onto a piece of whitewash cardstock. Lines were scored around the stamped layers creating a “window pane” type of effect.

The trio of rosettes was created by punching large scalloped circles, sanding them and tearing them in a spiral shape, then twisting them around the end of a stylus and adhering with a glue dot. A turquoise pearl from Queen&Co. was used in the center of each rosette to mimic the baby’s headband in the photo.

I created the banner by punching a border along the edge of a strip of Chocolate Box cardstock then trimming 1 inch strips up the border design. Alphabet stickers were added and the pieces were adhered over bakers twine. Journaling was done on a lightly sanded piece of Whitewash using a typewriter. I used a pink die cut square layer that I cute from a die from Lifestyle Crafts and the cardstock is from the 6×6 Spotted collection.

And a close up of those gorgeous flowers!!! Add some May Arts Ribbon and other details and you have a great layout.
