A close up of the scoring. Remember to scor from the back with your Scor Pal so you can send the raised image.
Distressing is sooooooooooooooo much fun with Core! AND you need a good adhesive to adhere 4 layers of cardstock. And something new that I tried….I put my rubons on first and then sanded over them so they got a bit distressed, too.
And do not forget to head over to the Xyron blog for MORE inspiration!
So our BRAND NEW Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered collection is so cool! If you love Tim Holtz products and Kraft-Core then you will undoubtedly love this collection, too. You can use it as is or do fun techniques to it just like Design Team Member Debbie Standard did on this layout. Inks soak up into the the kraft and leaves the crackle finish…it is SO COOL! Check it out….
Here is a little bit about this layout from Debbie:
In creating this page I used some Core’dination’s Tim Holtz Kraft Core to start with. I sanded it all over to start and then wanted to create clouds. To make them I put a piece of cloud chipboard behind the paper where I wanted the clouds and again sanded over the chipboard – moved it and sanded again until I got the effect that I wanted. Along the bottom portion of the sanded background, I stamped with a checked stamp. Then I used some of the new Tim Holtz Shattered Collection.
Some of the lighter sheets are just perfect for inking! I needed two different colors so the center portion I inked using some light brown inks. Then on this other section I wanted more of the turquoise so I inked this piece with some blues. Keep inking until you get the color you want. I just love how this Shattered collection looks when you ink it! You can use ANY color you want…it makes this collection so versatile!
Here are some close-ups:
Can you see the blue ink and the brown ink?
How cool are these clouds? You can do this outlining technique with ANY KIND of chipboard!
HERE is a video to see how it’s done:
And a shot of the stamping:
Here you can see the different inks Debbie used against each other:
We hope you can get creative with the Tim Holtz KRaft-Core Shattered!
