Core'dinations: Core Cards Creative Frenzy

Putting in my hat for the Core'dinations Card Design Team Call! So here goes...click on images for a closer look :0)

Beauty of Fall by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Core'dinations; Pearl: Want2Scrap; Die: Stamp: JustRite Papercraft Inc (Nature's Nested Sentiments Set); Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink Black Soot); Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-112 Carnival Dream, S4-324 Ribbon Banners and EL-023 M-Bossabilities Tweets & Twigs Folder); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Square Foams)

I love how the cardstock took to the pressure from Spellbinders™ M-Bossabilities™ Tweets and Twigs folder. It also can handle the intricate cuts, folds and the many tucks I had to do on these Cut·Fold·Tuck Carnival Dream die set...there are three layers in the center piece - so durable!

Just Because by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Papers: Authentique Paper (Loyal Collection); Pearls: Want2Scrap; Stamp: A Jillian Vance Design (Quatrefoil Background Set); Ink: Clearsnap (Mix'd Media Inx by Donna Salazar); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-147 Resplendent Rectangles, S4-364 Spiral Blossom Four, S5-086 Bitty Blossoms and S5-028 Nested Pennants); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Square Foams)

Speaking of intricate cuts, the Resplendent Rectangles dies are part of the Majestic Elements line from Spellbinders which won the Innovations Award at the summer CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) trade show last month. Core'dinations cardstock had no trouble being cut like this and hold its own when used as a shaped card. I used the three largest nested die to create a beautiful card front. I created a collage of step outs - click to see larger image and short explanation...



Bounty of the Harvest by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Paper: FarmHouse Paper Company (Sugar Hill Collection); Stamp: JustRite Papercraft Inc (Nature's Nested Sentiments Set); Ink: Clearsnap (Mix'd Media Inx by Donna Salazar); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-380 Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven, S4-376 Labels Twenty-Seven and S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares); Other: Sandpaper

I used Core'dination's Vintage Collection to bring out a fall inspired look...doesn't it go well with the patterned papers?! LOVE!!! The flip side gives the inside of the card a beautiful finish and does not distract what I added to it.

So there you have it! Hope you enjoyed it as much I enjoyed the process! Keeping my fingers crossed - wishing everyone who applied much luck!!!

Thanks for stopping in!
