My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

There is no better card stock on the market than Core'dinations. I'm finding I immediately reach for it whether Gemstone, Black Magic, Vintage or White Wash. So when I saw the Core'dinations Design Team call go up, I KNEW I just had to throw my name in the ring.

I've created 2 new projects and will share a few oldies but goodies as well. Hoping that more than 3 projects isn't going to hurt me. How do you narrow it down to 3 when you use this stuff on almost everything???!!!???

First off I have a pretty card using the Gemstone Collection. I love dry embossing and Core'dinations Cardstock is beautiful when you emboss it. I've used Helmar Premium Craft glue for the entire card. This card was made specifically for the call

Next I created an altered frame using Black Magic and Gemstone Collections. I so love how the entire project turned out. The colors are simply perfect and the Black Magic Collection really makes your embossing/sanding/tearing POP!!!This altered frame was made specifically for the call.

Here is a close up of the layered flowers. I really wanted to have a the purple shine, so the Gemstone/Black Magic layers are perfect for one another.

Now for an older card that really screams summer time!!! I love the citrus color palette I used. It really shows off the torn edges and the distressing.

How about some "boo-tiful" Black Magic again? The contrast between the black and the colors is truly amazing!!!

And finally a layout showcasing how well the White Wash collection as well as Core Essentials cardstock tear and distress. I love how you get these little surprises of color and I know if you use Core'dinations, you understand exactly what I mean hehe.

I'm so hoping that a spot on this amazing design team is in the cards. I'd love to hear all of your comments about my projects and also let me know what your favorite Core'dinations collection is.

Let the patience kick in and the waiting begin
