Stampendous to the Core('dinations)!


 Welcome to another week long collaboration! This week we're playing with Core'dinations' gorgeous papers! They always make a project pop with the addition of so much texture! Plus, they're just plain yummy colors! We love the way you can sand the papers to allow the coordinating color core show through.   I have a lot, whole LOT, of paper in my craft room.  Even saying "whole lot" seems like a huge understatement!  Still, one of my all-time favorite papers to create with is Core'dinations!   Here's my card for today:

When I saw this embossing folder, I knew I had to use it with the PenPatttern Flower stamp.  Aren't they perfect together?!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Stampendous® PenPattern Flower
Stampendous® Angel Wings Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™
Core'dinations® Vintage Collection™ Emberglow
Core'dinations® Sand It Kit
WorldWin® Peaches & Cream Cardstock
Misc. Patterned Paper
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White
Darice® Large Petal Embossing Folder
May Arts Ribbon®
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink® in Antique Linen
Tsukineko® Radiant Neon Electric Blue
Tsukineko® Radiant Neon Electric Orange
Tsukineko StāzOn® Spiced Chai Midi Pad
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™
Glue Dots®

Here's what I did to create this card:

Create card base with a tent fold
Trim patterned paper to fit as shown
Trim Core'dinations® paper to fit as shown and emboss
Sand embossed paper and adhere to patterned paper
Adhere ribbon piece trimmed to fit width of paper as shown
Adhere papers with attached ribbon to card base
Stamp the three flowers and cut out as shown
Add distress ink to tone down white
Attach flowers with glue dots
Stamp sentiment with StāzOn® ink directly onto ribbon

Of course there are prizes this week! Three prize packages will be awarded. Package includes the Lovely Garden Stamp Set; the Matching Lovely Garden Cutting Dies; a Sand It Kit from Core'dinations which includes a sanding block, replacement sandpaper, and a "must-have" Dust Buddy clean up cloth; Core'dinations will also be sending the lucky winners some of their fantastic 6" X 6" paper pads. PLUS an extra special bonus - our friends at Dreamweaver Stencil will be adding the gorgeous Stone Wall stencil that Jamie Martin used in her terrific card she'll be posting this week (you can see a peek of it on the blog banner!)
