Core Cards Creative Frenzy
"Calling all Cardmakers … Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is looking for Card Designers!"
I just found out about this yesterday?! But one have to give it a go - right?
I now wonder if I bit of more than I can chew...
I've just about managed to get three cards done. Which I had superfun making, since I had to pull out all my dies and punches. Thanks to IAR I rarely make any flowers anymore and thanks to ebay, I get my hands on cheaper bling as well - LOL!
My first card I made of a fun folding technic, I think it's called tri-fold. I'm not very familiar with the cordinations collection to be honest, again thanks to youtube I only buy patterned paper now a days. But I've tried the core'dination's paper just for the fun fact that you can emboss it, tear it, sand it without getting any white edges. So I had the tiniest scrap piece left in blue. The collection I have used is the DCWV performance mat stack. I used this both in order to save time and to show "same, but different".
Punches and dies I've used are:
A scalloped edge punch by Martha Stewart
A butterfly punch by McGill
A small flower punch by Tonic Studios
Large leafy flourish die by My Favourite Things
|The sentiment is stamped with Adirondack expresso and LAUGHTER is highlighted with ranger glossy accent|
My second card is an easel card. Here I used the core'dination paper with an embossing folder and layered with spellbinders die cuts.
The flowers are just a flower punch, this is one of my first punches and I don't remember who it's from. But I layered 8 flowers on top of each other, to give it dimension and glued a flat back in the center.
I used a Martha Stewart ribbon slot edge punch and thread some matching blue organza ribbon through and made a knot.
The large butterfly is from Spellbinders "Fancy flight". Inside the card is a sentiment layered on one of MFT's layered sets. I can't find the name of it, but if you want to know. Leave a comment and I will look for it for you. The card stand on a Martha Stewart butterfly edge.
For my last card, you can tell I ran out of core'dination paper as well as time. But here I wanted to use the paper itself, how can you cover this beautiful ballerina?! So I used the mini flourish from MFT and fussy cut a ticket I stamped with a tim holtz sentiment from the odds and ends stamp set. Then I went crazy with lace, IAR and bling. For the inside I made a bouquet for when the curtains fall - LOL!
So that's my crazy frenzy for the core'dination's cardstock design team call.
I very much doubt that I will get on the team, but I had the best time making these cards - LOL!!
If you have any questions, please don't be shy!!
Thanks for stopping by!
