Core Cards Creative Frenzy

Hi everyone! I'm throwing my hat in the ring and going for the Core'dinations Design Team. You can't win it if you're not in it, right? 

This first card combines a bit of stamping, a bit of embossing and of course a bit of tulle. :)

The back of the Core'dinations papers are smooth and perfect for stamping on. I heat embossed Stampendous CRR138 Garden Cling in Purple Embossing Powder.

Next I went in and add just a bit of color with LuLu Lavender Memento marker and white colored pencil. 

The black background cardstock was embossed with a embossing folder, sanded and highlighted with Purple Hydrangea VersaMagic ink. 

My next project is a frame for my craft room, but this tag could easily be popped on a card front and make a darling card.  

To begin with cut 3/4 inch strips of Core'dinations Core Color and adhere them to a strip of scrap paper. 

When you get the entire piece covered, trim the paper and run it through your embossing folder. 

A bit of sanding and the design really pops. Here is the finished frame...

You might recognize this next card. I had it on my blog earlier in the week. I used a Dreamweavers stencil to emboss the butterfly design in the card base. 

You can really see the butterfly in this next project that I did this week for Paper Craft Planet.  Here it is burnt into the wood....

And here it is embossed on the Core'dinations cardstock. Adds a pop of color and really brings the butterfly design into the box. Head on over and leave a comment in the PCP post for a chance to win a Dreamweavers stencil.
