We have a fun week for you this week! We have teamed up with Petaloo and Sweet Stamp shop for some FUN! If you love flowers make sure you buy Petaloo flowers that core’dinate with our cardstock PERFECTLY!  No worrying about matching them yourself, we did that for you.

Don’t forget to head over to Petaloo blog and the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check things out. I heard some rumors there are goodies up for grabs over there, too! (Keep  in mind SSS is PST time so they be up a bit later).

We will be giving away some goodies here on the blog for commenting ALL WEEK long (make sure to comment on every post here for more chances to win)

AND head over to our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house!  I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school.  We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!

Today, Day Two, we have Shaunte Wadley working some skills on a fun little treat box and soda treat that is sure to get any kid an “A” with their teacher! Shaunte used the School’s Out Stamp set from SSS…anyone that has kids in school NEEDS this stamp!

And some fabulous details of the Petaloo flower (they core’dinate so well, don’t they???)  and Sweet Stamp Shop stamps…

and Shaunte used Spectrum Noir markers to do the coloring. They are beautiful and smooth and just so easy to use.

In addition to stamping, Shaunte printed on her Core’dinations Cardstock, too! Don’t be afraid to mix up those fonts and colors!

Dies used today are from Lifestyle Crafts.

Stamping on Pearls Cardstock

Tuesday’s Tip is all about stamping on Pearls Cardstock.

We looove stamping here at Core and our Pearls Cardstock is beautiful…it just has a hit of shimmery/pearlness to it and it is so smooth and just lovely for cardmaking. AND it comes in 8.5×11 so it is perfect for cardmaking!

P.s….did you know that we have an entire Cardmaker Series?

Core Cards….8.5×11…the possibilities are endless!!!!!

Design Team Debbie Standard created this cute cute cute card where she stamped the sentiment right on the Pearls Cardstock.

So today’s Tuesday Tip all about INK. Deciding what kind of ink to use can make all the difference in the world. I would recommend using Stazon or another ink that is not water based because of how smooth this cardstock is. It won’t smear and needs little to no time at all to dry.

And I did some stamping on Pearls on this layout, too. AND if you want to see how to do this cross hatching in the corner, check out the video “We Will Rock You”  HERE!

And her is  a close up of that stamping on the Pearls Cardstock:

Looking for new and unique ways to stamp on your Core’dinations Cardstock?  We have teamed up with Sweet Stamp Shop and have some awesome ideas for you.  See you Monday!

Here is a card that I created using one of their stamp sets called Against the Grain. Looks fab with my Tim Holtz Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder, don’t you think??? Inks are Tim Holtz Distress colors. They match perfectly with Core 😉
