Oh That Clever Core'dinations!

Welcome back!  This week Stampendous is doing an awesome blog collaboration with not one, not two, but three different companies!  Pretty cool if you ask me.  We're playing along with May Arts, Core'dinations, and David Tutera.  My first project for you is a bookmark.  I've used a tag, rhinestones and accent piece from David Tutera, the flowers are David Tutera on Core'dinations sandable paper and the ribbon is from May Arts.  Of course, the sentiment is from Stampendous' Friendship Assortment Perfectly Clear Stamps!  The cute patterned paper is from a Michaels Recollections 12x12 paper pad.  I also used a little Tim Holtz distress ink in Scattered Straw.  This was super quick to make and really looks cute.

My next project is a card using a ready made David Tutera note card with matching envelope.  I added a little My Mind's Eye red gingham paper for the background.  Using a piece of basic red Core'dinations, I ran it through one of my Sizzix embossing folders, sanded it and framed it on a kraft mat.  I stamped that cute little Ladybug Critter stamp from Stampendous, colored it with Copics and added a little Tim Holtz distress ink in frayed burlap.  I matted my image on a kraft and gingham mat and layered them all together.  For a final touch I added the David Tutera zigzag accent piece and a little cute twine bow.  I stamped the Ladybug Critter stamp on the matching envelope to complete the set.

  6. Love both the tag and the card. I think embellishing the ready made card with stamping gives it that little something extra and of course makes it hand made.
