Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap! Day 1

Welcome to the Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

This week Spellbinders™ has teamed up with Core’dinations Color Core
Cardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together!



Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a card to share with you using three different collections from Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock.

I used the BasicGrey Collection Whimsy for the card base, pink embossed mat piece, brown ironwork die cut. For the flower I used the pink side of the Chocolate Box Collection (brown/pink) and the white with the stamped images is from the Super Assortment.

I sanded the pink embossed cardstock from the BasicGrey Collection Whimsy and then I used the Distrezz-it-All tool to distress the edges. Then I stamped the image on to the white cardstock using Rich Cocoa ink. The stamps are from JustRite Stampers Cling CL-02185 Bon Voyage and CL-02195 Greetings From Paris. I used LF-002 Creative Book Pages Two and S4-348 Postage Stamp to create the die cuts and I inked the edges using Ranger Bundled Sage, Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet Distress Inks. Then I inked the edges again with Rich Cocoa.


Here is a close up of the postage stamp. I used Glue Gloss and added Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter from Clearsnap to the stamp and seam binding bow.

To create the flower I used the pink side of the Chocolate Box Collection (brown/pink) and S5-050 Rose Creations die templates from Spellbinders. I shaped the petals, then glued the layers together and added a button from My Mind's Eye and a White Pearl from Want2Scrap™ to the center of the flower and edged the flower with glitter. I used S5-059 Ironwork Motif and BasicGrey Collection Whimsy to create the accent die cut.



For a finishing touch I added some Finesse Swirls Brown Rhinestones and 72 Count White Pearls from Want2Scrap.

~Ok now for all of the details.~

The Spellbinders Blog and Core'dinations Blog will be posting daily link list to the designers for each day of the Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

Sophistication, value and maximum versatility make Spellbinders™ die
templates #1. Beautiful Details Inspiring Creativity…Spellbinders unique
triple function die templates allow you to cut, emboss, and then stencil

Calibur® machine and Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities™ die templates cut and

Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only sandable cardstock with a
color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core
Essentials line comes in over 160 colors with matching color families. Or
maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black
Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sandable core will shine through the
unique black and brown colors once it is sanded. Core’dinations has also
teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, BasicGrey,
Graphic 45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that
perfectly accents their patterned papers.
