Playing with Core'dinations and the July Kit

This I am a Scrapaholic kit is just awesome! Packed full of all kinds of wonderful goodies - the Basic Grey Lime Rickey that is just so bright and fun, awesome tags, flowers and gorgeous ribbon. And on top of that my favorite product - "Core'dinations". Since I am a part of their design team as well I just wanted to tell you a little about using these papers. You can sand them, distress them, emboss them and do just about anything with them and they rock! On this card (sketch by Card Patterns), I used the Whitewash Orange and embossed it with my Cuttlebug embossing machine and then sanded over it to show the core color. The different Core'dinations Whitewash, Black Magic and Chocolate Box all have either white, black or brown on the top and a color core so that you can sand them down to show the underlying color - the bonus is when you open the card the inside is the core color that you can stamp, write or on create on again. The Luxe journaling card was perfect behind my core to use just like patterned paper and the little bird from the Lime Rickey is so darn cute I want to use it on everything. Enjoy your kit - I am! I included a close up so you can see how the core comes through - the darker the core color the more it shows through.
