Rocking the Core’dinations this Week!

2014_06_coredinations

This week we’re playing with Core’dinations’ gorgeous papers! We love the fantastic texture and terrific colors! We use a lot of their paper because they are available in JoAnn Fabric and Crafts along with our stamps, and we’re so glad they’re partnering with us for this great week of super inspiration.

Of course there are prizes! We’ll give away three packs of goodness! The Prize Package includes the Lovely Garden Stamp Set; the Matching Lovely Garden Cutting Dies  from Stampendous; a Sand It Kit from Core’dinations which includes a sanding block, replacement sandpaper, and a “must-have” Dust Buddy clean up cloth; Core’dinations will also be sending the lucky winners some of their fantastic 6″ X 6″ paper pads.

Core’dinations is Back In The House!!

2014_06_coredinations

Welcome to another week long collaboration!  This week we’re playing with Core’dinations’ gorgeous papers! They always make a project pop with the addition of so much texture! Plus, they’re just plain yummy colors!

We love the way you can sand the papers to allow the coordinating color core show through. This card from our own Kristine Reynolds really highlights this fantastic technique. This works with embossing folders, metal dies (like those from our friends at Dreamweaver Stencils), or just sanding straight on the paper to create a distressed look.

PenPatterns are Here!

Fran has done it again, and in our April 2014 Catalog we’re introducing one of her newest ideas, PenPatterns.

Folks seem to have taken to doodling in and out of shapes for their stamped artwork lately, so Fran has created some images that are perfect for this new trend. These charming images have large open spaces ideal for doodling your own patterns into with either black or colored pens or pencils.

PenPatterns are available in both wood mounted and Cling Rubber

You can also enjoy stamping patterns into them with our new PenPatterns background tiles. (psst…these also make great card and page backgrounds!)

Finally, these terrific images make just plain fun coloring! We took them with us to Los Angeles this past Saturday for La Feria de los Niños and the kids had an absolute blast coloring them! Our good friends at Faber-Castell USA were good enough to supply colored pencils for us to use. Our friends at Prima Marketing sent along some fantastic adhesive jewels and paper flowers. The kids were in heaven! Look at this proud miss with her finished work!

And have you ever seen anyone color more intently than these two little crafters? Our new PenPatterns were a HUGE hit!
