First, our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions shown here from Designer Debbie Standard:
I love when the season is one that works with Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions cardstock – it makes the page so easy to do. For this page I started with sanding the entire sheet. Then I inked the outside design and some of the words with Tim Holtz Ink. Then I shielded the middle of the sheet and sprayed the edges again with Ranger Dylusions Pure Sunshine spray. Then I embossed a sheet of Tim Holtz Adirondack cardstock and sanded it and layered it over a sheet of patterned paper from Graphic 45′s French County collection.
Patterned Paper: Graphic 45 French Country collection
Washi Tape: Queen & Co.

AND … we have another gorgeous gorgeous creation using our SECOND must have for Halloween projects…..BLACK MAGIC!
Chalkboard is all the rage currently and what better product than Core to create your own embellishments and layouts! Especially Black Magic!! For a “grungier” chalkboard look, that look as if the blackboard has been used, be sure to rub your chalk (yes, real chalk), lightly on the Nightfall cardstock before decorating. I have used 4 different chalkboard effects here to create this layout; 1.) white pencil on paper (my title, Carved), 2.) Die cut or punched objects with sanded edges (bat and numbers), 3.) white powder embossed stamps and 4.) embossed Black Magic which is sanded to show color for a pop of color.
HOW COOL! Suzzana used some of her own chalk skills on here AND did some simple sanding on the star. SO COOL!
