My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

Core'Dination 21

So , I had some fun playing with some paper from core'dinations.


First I made this layout called 'Bug Love'. I love using the ColorCore CardStock because it is so easy to do so many fun & whimsical things with it! Check out how I cut out strips out paper using Fiskars Paper Edgers and then using a sanding block I distressed the edges to reveal the colors! AWESOME!!!!Core'Dination 24

I gently inked the edges of the paper with soft colors. Core'dinations 20

I sand papered hearts shapes onto the paper. By sanding in circular motions it brought up the color that was on the opposite side. In this case it was a dark rose. I then used a ZIG Memory Writer from Kuretake and did some outlining.Cre'Dinatios 27

This cardstock is so fun to stitch on and so I always like to add some on somewhere!


I also took a frame and some bits of cardstock and made a cute spring time gift! This cutie only took a couple of minutes to do!Core'Dination 30

I used a a punch to cut out my circles. The cardstock cut out so cleanly that I could have cut out circles the whole day!Core'Dination 31

I had so much fun cutting out the project that I decide to make a fun & easy card! This is how I made it...…

Supplies Used:


-ColorCore Cardstock

-Stix2; craft foam Pads, glue stick

-Tattered Angels; Glimmer Mist(Dazzling Diamonds)& Glimmer Glaze(Waterfall)

-Fiskars; Paper Edgers

-TPC Studio; Mini Jewels

-Jillibean Soup; Ribbon


I started by cutting six 2x2inch squares out of the cardstock.

I trimmed the with the Edgers.20110415_1  

Core'indinations 2 Because the paper has colors on two sides……-your color combinations can be endless!

Core'indinations 3  I had a hard time making up my mind on what color combination that I wanted to use today!!!!

Next, you take some sand paper and gently sand the edges of your square to reveal the underlying color. Scissors can also be used to distress, just be careful..Core'indinations 5

With Tatter Angels Glimmer Mist you gently spray your squares. This makes that colors pop a bit more and adds a bit of shimmer. Gotta LUV shimmer!!!

Core'indinations 7Glimmer Glam is used lightly around 2 of the edges.

Core'indinations 83 of the squares get glued done flat where the other 3 are stuck down with craft foam pads from Stix 2 to add some dimension to the card for some fun!
