My Core'dinations Creative Frenzy!

Hey Crafty Friends-

Today I am sharing with you three projects I created to apply for the Core'dinations Cardstock Design Team. I am so excited for the opportunity since I use Core'dinations all the time. I find that is cuts very well with my Cricut, embossing comes out great when run through the Big Shot or Cuttlebug, it takes ink like no other, and sanding is so fun! It is my favorite cardstock to work with and I hope I can be a part of the team. Since my favorite crafts to do are party and holiday related, as well as cards and tags, that's what I stuck with for my submission. Let me show you what I created!

With Easter coming up I thought it would be fun to make a little treat bag for the kiddos.

 I started glitter core for the bag then used green core for the grass and pink core for the sign. I inked the edge with Distress ink for a little jazz. The bunny is my favorite part. I used Chocolate Box core to cut the bunny with my Cricut. I sanded the edges a bit to let the lavender core show. I added a google eye and a checked bow to finish him off. So cute!

For my next project I combined two of my current obsessions, mason jars and purple.

I used green patterned paper to make the tag base and adhered a paper doily that was cut in half. I used purple core with a metal die to cut the jar, then embossed it with my Cuttlebug. It was then sanded and edges inked to distress it a bit. I embellished with twine, stickers, and a stamped sentiment to complete my giftable tag. Love the way this turned out.

For my final project I went with a card suitable for the coffee lovers in your life.

This card turned out amazing! I started with Black Magic core for the base and adhered a layer of craft cardstock I had stamped and embossed with white hearts and inked the edges in red. I glued down a layer of white glitter cardstock then layered on the Love you a Latte square which was cut with the Cricut out of Black Magic core again. The black core was sanded to allow the red core to show through. I added a checked ribbon and a heart gem and it was done! Quick, easy, adorable!

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made for the design team call. Thank you to Core'dinations for the chance to be a part of the team. Please come back soon for more inspiration!

Have a great crafty day!
