Design Team Member Debbie Standard uses Core in the most magical ways! Did I say layouts only?  ooooops…I am going to squeak in a card there, too. :)

Check out how she used the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection today.

First up:  Embossed AND Sanded :)

See sketch for this card here.

And a bit of everything on this layout…some sanded die cuts…some embossing and sanding….edge distressing…you name it! It’s perfection.

And another layout from Debbie using some of the scraps from the card above on here and some Tim Holtz KRaft Core Seasonal Impressions…love how these core’dinate, don’t you?

Terrific Tuesday Tip…Spanish Moss

First up…we want to THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of the amazing Design Team applications. WOWOWOWOWOW is all we can say. This is not going to be easy. If you were here the other week  you saw that our David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system debuted some EXCLUSIVE kits on HSN  so make sure you get yours HERE!

We are working on the Design Team applications and should have an answer for you SOOOOOOOOOOOON!  I just got back from a Holiday long-weekend so once we get caught up we will let you know.


Today we have some more Spring inspiration for you!

Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea and how she used some Spanish Moss on her project. It looks so GREAT with the earth tones from the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core collections.

I cut elements from a sheet of the Spring Seasonal  Impressions cardstock and then I sanded them and applied Paper Glaze medium to each piece before mounting them over the exact same areas of the teal Spring Seasonal Core Impressions page. I used the light colored Kraft Shattered cardstock for my backround and covered the surface with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Wild Honey to bring out the crackling. My nest and egg were die cut using the Picturesque Cricut cartridge. I used more Shattered Kraft in brown and teal blue and distressed the edges of the nest a bit with a tool before tucking in some Spanish Moss for realistic texture.

And a close up of that fabulous detail:

Love the look of the Spanish moss with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered!

Happy Spring! Stay tuned for more Easter Projects this week. We have some good ones!

TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY!

Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.

You know what is perfect for Spring?

TIM HOLTZ SEASONAL IMPRESSIONS! Sorry for the excitment but you know how I get excited about my Core :)

Designer Debbie Standard created this layout using the Spring themed cardstock. .Just sand it and this gorgeous embossed design  with “seasonal’ phrases and designs.

AND ..it gets better…the colors of the Seasonal Impressions match all of the Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock, too! So, for this layout, the No. 15 will match perfectly. Debbie new instantly that the No. 2, No. 6 & No. 22 would look perfect with it.

And who doesn’t love a picture of their grandaughter kissing the Easter Bunny?
