Gotta share lots of Core goodness

Nothing beats the excitement that comes with the approaching reveals at CHA.  I don't even know how so many companies can keep coming out with all kinds of goodies we just have to have. It never fails that they amaze us. Let me tell you, Core'dinations cardstock has some serious goodies coming out.  There are two new pads of cardstock in colors that match colors that Tim Holtz works in.
And what makes these pads even more exciting is that you can win some. Go HERE and enter. You have until the 28th. 

I created a few projects to be shown in the Core'dinations booth to show off these colors.  This is a little paper birdhouse using all kinds of Tim Holtz supplies.  Distress Stamp pads, stamps, embossing folders and buttons. 
The roof is a great embossing folder and that is rubbed with a few different shades of Distress stamp pads with a foam Blending Pad.  I had not use one of these before but let me tell you, I am in love!
I just love this guy with the umbrella.  He is in a stamp set by Tim Holtz and I stamped him with Blue China Distress stamp pad and you can see the accent of Ranger Crackle medium on the umbrella. 
I also want to share my CPS card for this week. It just happens that I used all kinds of Core'dinations on it. 
The butterfly is cut from a piece of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, the black circles are Black Magic embossed with an embossing folder and sanded. The Black Magic has a color core, this one is a golden yellow.  The card base is cardstock from the Vintage collection and I added some score lines using my Martha Stewart Score Board. 
As usual, I also need to share some photos...
Our three grandsons were on a mission in our backyard last weekend. Their version is they were digging to China!!! Notice the dogs help.

We have a big play structure in our backyard and the dog has figured out how to climb all over of it. She has also discovered she can watch what the dog next door is doing from this perch! Too funny!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
