Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today. Recently my niece was over and wanted to watch the Disney movie Cinderella. We managed to find an animated copy of the movie and when the horse drawn carriage showed up her eyes widened with excitement. It was at that moment that I know that I have to make one for her. We are also doing a blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron so I will be featuring some of their lovely products in the post. To make this carriage I came up with a few steps in addition to those that come with the file.
Pumpkin Carriage Supplies:
- Core’dinations Gemstones Pearlescent Finish Cardstock
- Core’dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Darice Foliage Embossing Folder
- Pumpkin Carriage from SVGCUTS Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit
- Sizzix Embossing Folder
- Petaloo Fancy Trims – Taupe
- Petaloo Darjeeling Collection – Darjg Mix
- Petaloo Darjeeling Petites Autumn
- Xyron Tape Runner
- Xyron 5″ Creative Station
- Silhouette Cameo
Step 1. Cut out all your pieces and assemble the carriage, lid, base and wheels. The wheels are actually 12 layers thick so they are really sturdy. I prefer to build my projects out of White Card stock but you can always use whatever cardstock you desire, just make sure it is at least 80 weight paper.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a great day my crafty friends! I hope to see you soon
Jennifer Edwardson here with you today with this little Darice paper mâché flower pot that has been calling my name for a while now! I LOVE the shimmer of the Gemstones cardstock and decided to create this entirely with all the fun colors I could. Plus, this is a GREAT way to use up scraps.
Gemstones Cardstock: Opal, Moonstone, Tanzanite, Yellow Topaz, Quartz, Amethyst, Peridot, Garnet
Misc flower punches and 1 1/2″ circle punch
Buttons and twine
1.) Start by punching out MANY 1 1/2″ circle of the Opal color and stared overlapping them all over the base of the pot using Mod Podge. I cut several in half for the rim as well.
2.) Put a styrofoam ball inside and covered it with kraft cut paper pieces that you can make on your own or buy at a local craft store.
3.) Punch multiple flowers using several colors and create flower picks using cut down wooden skewers.
4.) Add buttons tied with twine and your flower pot is complete.
After sanding your Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock, don’t forget to dust with your Dust Buddy! It really does clean up the dust and keep the colors true.

Suzanna Lee here and I wanted to share with you this pocket page layout created entirely from Core’dinations cardstock. Not a lock of patterned paper in there. Well, there is a smidge of vellum! Guess how many different types of Core there are there? My point being, you don’t have to go out and buy those fancy cards when you can create your own cards from cardstock! Different types and the textures you can create with die cuts, embossing and stamping provide you with all the spice and variety you need!
Embossing and sanding with letter stickers. Overlay color on color for some variation.
Layer Whitewash on Core Essentials that has been embossed and sanded. Layer Gemstones on vellum and stamp.
The man and women were created with the likeness of the bride and groom in mind. I used Maya Road acetate shaped and rubbed with my Sand It Gadget on the paper leaving the outline of the people. I pushed down on the edges in order to create the slightly embossed look.
Did you guess correctly? Seven, 7 types of Core’dinations cardstock in that pocket page!
