Core'dinations Love

It's been a great start to the year with Imaginisce. They've released some cute lines and we've had several swaps with other manufacturers, which means I've been having fun creating with some amazing products.  Today I'd like to share with you a couple of cards I made using Core'dinations cardstock.

I ususally stick to my Bazzill or American Crafts but I gave this a whirl and I have to say that it's really nice and heavy and takes to embossing great! I love that you can sand away to expose another color at it's core.  

For You Card

Pin It

I made this first card but cutting out large and small hearts in the same colors and running through my Big Shot with an embossing plate.  I then sanded the embossed part and stacked the two colors together.  I added some bling to the centers, added a sentiments and some twine and voila!

Life is Sweet Card

This card was my favorite because it was experimental.  I love to challenge myself to make an idea come to fruition.  To make this card, I pulled out my Imaginisce d-stress tool and embossing tip, flipped the cardstock to the B-side and drew a heart. Then I drew another heart and another heart around it until the shape started to not resemble hearts but the bark of a tree instead.  Then I just added some more odd lines, flipped it, sanded to the core and revealed my tree trunk. I LOVE how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to head over to the Imaginisce blog for more design team inspiration and a chance to win a collection pack of Imaginisce Hippity Hop and Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock.
