Blog Hop w/ Core & Imaginisce

I'm so excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop this week ..... The Core'dinations and Imaginisce Design Teams got to play with each others product this week and I was sooooo excited to get to mix Imaginisce product into my Core'dinations projects !!  

The iRock is such a cool tool and it worked perfectly with this layout of our big german shepherd, Samson.


I added a piece of Imaginisce polka dot patterned paper from their camping collection (CUTE) and then got to work with my iRock and Glam Rocks !!!



This tools is so fun as it heats up super quick and sets the 'rocks' fast too.  I used the metallic and red rocks and covered all the gold dots on the patterned paper and addeed them to my title and highlighted a few of the stars as well.  I really love how they made the layout pop !!!

...... I couldn't stop there and had to create a card too :))

I don't often make square cards but I really wanted to use the Imaginisce iRock tool for the center of my butterflies and the 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 David Tutera Celebrate card base was the perfect size.




I added a piece of pre-embossed Core'dinations cardstock to the base.  The red posies are super sweet behind the polka dots of the Imaginisce patterned paper. I lightly sanded the edges first and then raised the patterned paper off the base using 3D foam.  

I punched butterflies from (3) colors of cardstock and lightly sanded the edges before adhereing them.  I only added adhesive to the center of each butterfly so that I could raise the wings.  I used the base of one of the dimensional stickers from the Imaginisce Outdoor Adventure collection and added a birthday sentiment sticker from the David Tutera Celebrate line on top using 3D foam.




To finish it off I set a red Glam Rock to the center of each butterfly using the iRock and them gently lifted the wings to add some dimension !!

Now make sure you head over to the other girls' blogs and check out all they've created for you too :))
