Stampendous & Core'dinations Week!!!


Good morning!!  Welcome to Stampendous & Core'dinations Week!!!  Each member of our team post their amazing creations using Stampendous and Core'dinations this week, leading up to an amazingly inspiring Blog Hop Saturday, October 12th.

My card today was fun, colorful and rather simple to create.

I started by cutting stripes of Core'dinations Black Magic Cut and Emboss Series Cardstock into .70" x 5.5" pieces.  I cut one strip of five different colors.   I loved this package of card stock.  There are 10 pieces of cardstock, 4 of each color!!!  What an awesome value.
They call this cardstock Black Magic because the front of each textured side of cardstock is black and the core of the paper is colored.  I chose to use, red, orange, yellow, green, light blue and a darker blue.

Once my strips were cut, I placed each in a "edge" embossing folder and dry embossed with a Big Shot.

My strips are now embossed and still looking like any other embossed paper, UNTIL I started sanding the embossed side of the cardstock with Core'dinations Sand It Set.  Not only is there a fabulous paper sander , there is a pick up cloth that works amazing for getting the sanding dust off of your project.


I layered the embossed and sanded cardstock on a piece of newsprint tissue paper and added a few swipes of Memento Ink.  I also added different colors of Memento Inks to my new Stampendous Cling Life is Art (CRY025) and stamped on white card stock.

I couldn't get enough of my May Arts ribbons, so I added the new May Arts Black Twill!!  I am in love with every color of this style of ribbon.  I added a little charm from my stash!!!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Black Magic (Core'dinations); white, tissue paper (Bazzill Basics)
Stamps: Cling Life is Art CRY025 (Stampendous)
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Lady Bug, Danube Blue, Summer Sky, Dandelion, Tangelo Ink (Tsukineko)
Embossing : Pop Culture Edge Embossing Folders (Provo Craft)
Ribbon: Black Twill (May Arts)
Extras: charms (stash)

I hope you will try some of this cool paper from Core'dinations.  For more inspiration from Stampendous and Core'dinations check out these gals....
