Core Cards Creating Frenzy - Core'dinations

Are you ready? I am going to show off a whole lot of cards in my post today. Maybe you have seen some of these creations before but what I wanted to do in this post is to show off Core'dinations cardstock and how truly wonderful that cardstock looks on cards. Some I have embossed, some of the cardstocks come embossed, some of the accents have been cut with my Cricut and some have been stamped. 

First up, I wanted to use The Play Date Cafe color challenge for this week plus my card fits A Blog Named Hero Freestyle Frenzy challenge. I used a digital stamp for the flower, that is available at 2 Peas in a Bucket.  I printed it out and then left it uncolored because I really did want just a black and white flower to go against my other colors.  The flower is accented with Liquid Pearls.  
 I also wanted to give you a great peek at how wonderful the Kreaxions circle cutter is. I would never have believed how easy this tool is to use if they hadn't given me one to try. I love how easy it is to pick the size you want to cut so you can see I could quickly and easily cut my rings with the cutter. 
That great background is a stamp by Hero Arts as is the sentiment circle. Notice I stamped the background stamp on white, Core'dinations cardstock. This cardstock has a slight texture but the stamp has a texture look to it, so they worked together so wonderfully.
 Here is The Play Date Cafe colors.
 Here is the link to A Blog Named Hero challenge.
Now for a line up of cards where Core'dinations cardstock is the star...
 An embossed cardstock and punches are the star here.
 Do you totally love that Stacy Jillian embossed cardstock?
 The leaf design is cut with the Cricut, that is layered over a white glitter cardstock.
 You maybe noticed that I love my Cricut!!! This design was cut with one of the cartridges and I stamped the writing background to mount it on.
 Another image cut with the Cricut. 

It is so fun that Core'dinations cardstock come in so many wonderful colors.
 The white background is embossed with the Cuttlebug and the heart image is cut with the Cricut.
 The card shape is cut with the Cricut, that cardstock was already embossed with the design. The round label is also cut with the Cricut.
 It was so fun to use some great shades of Core'dinations cardstock to cut my sunburst design, the stamp is by Hero Arts.
 I embossed the red cardstock, the stamps are by Gourmet stamps.
 Another card with a fun selection of colors of cardstock.
 I embossed a piece of cardstock and then added two cut pieces to the front of the card. The doily is cut with a My Favorite Things die.
 I love this little guy. He is cut with the Cricut and that neat turquoise embossed cardstock comes with that design in it from Core'dinations.
 I thought the color on color of this great gray colo was pretty elegant. The square label shape is from Spellbinders.
I think this might be one of my most favorite techniques with this cardstock.

All it takes is a Score Board and then you just keep scoring the lines until you have an all over design.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
