Core Cards Creative Frenzy

I've always been a huge Core'dinations Cardstock fan and i've been playing with my faves to create a few new cards.....

For this one I used several colors of my favourite 'Spotted' core cardstock.....I added red to cover the base and stamped the same flower on (4) colors, precision cut them out, sanded the top off to show the spots and adhered them flat and raised to create a little flower garden !!!

......I added mini jems to the center of each, created a flag and added a wooden 'hello' sentiment on fun !!

For this card I went with more neutral colors.  I started with brown spotted cardstock to cover the base and added Jenni Bowlin and Fancy Pants Core Impressions to create layers along with a strip of patterned paper.....

I created this fun embellishment using more spotted core and sanding off the top to make the embossed spots really stand out....I am so happy with how the cardstock coordinated so well with this fun Echo Park paper.....

I gave a peek at this card when I made it for my son's 7th birthday a few weeks back but LOVE how it all came together so I wanted to add it to this post to show more of what you can do with Core'dinations cardstock !!!

Both the blue and orange were from a solid brights pack and I ran them through my embossing machine and sanded off the top to show the images of dots and stars.....perfect for Alexander's celebration.....

I hope this inspires you to sit down with your fave Core'dinations cardstock and create something fabulous !!

Talk soon.
