My Core'dinations Creative Frenzy
What can I say about this fabulous cardstock? It's awesome. I've been honored to be a part of this fabulously creative team for quite awhile now and would love to continue to work with these talented women for even longer. I can't say enough about this cardstock. Over time I find that when I start on a page I hardly ever look for patterned paper - Core'dinations cardstock provides so many options with all their lines that I can create a page with just their product and love it. It's the first thing I grab and most of the time I never touch anything else. Here are my submissions for the DT call. First off I have used some Cosmo Cricket's cardstock for the background and the turquoise and sanded each of those, then embossed red cardstock with a Cuttlebug folder for the red pop and then along the bottom have used the Score-It to score red cardstock along the bottom - sanding the ridges. I embossed brown cardstock with a Tim Holtz folder and then cut out circles to use as to create flowers, used a Martha Stewart punch to create the border and a Jenni Bowlin button. Letter stickers are from Jenni Bowlin. The adorable little subject is my great-nephew, Brayden.
Next I created this from some more Cosmo Cricket Core'dinations cardstock as my background paper. I embossed, sanded and tore some Black Magic for my black on this page, used some embossing folders and sanded them for the swirls, then used a Fiskars crimper to crimp the Black Magic and then sanded and cut leaves from it. The butterflies were punches from Martha Stewart punches, then sanded to show the "core" beneath. The precious little girls are my granddaughter (L) and her best-est friend.
This last page is done with Core'Amour- Sable Collection - LOVE the Core'Amour line! I used one piece for my background page - sanded the underlayer, cut and sanded scrolls from another sheet, cut the title and sanded it from another sheet, stamped a butterfly with a Jenni Bowlin stamp. I used a Cuttlebug kit to cut these flowers - then when I had them together (quilled) I sanded the edges to give them a more textured look. Once again I used a Fiskars crimper to create my leaves, crimping them, sanding them and then free hand cutting them. For the flower in the corner I punches flowers and sanded them and layered them. For the butterflies I punched them from cardstock and Core'Amour and then sanded them.Thanks again for stopping by - please stop over at Core'dinations to see all the wonderful products that they have for you
