Fabulous Finds Friday — Cool to the Core!

I’m a big fan of the cardstock from Core’dinations, maker of the colored-core paper that is such fun to tear, sand and otherwise mangle. And guess what? Yup — more colors, more designs, more fabulousness. Core’dinations has teamed with designers such as Jenni Bowlin, Graphic 45, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, My Mind’s Eye and others, including Ranger’s Adirondack and Distress colors.

I couldn’t wait to, ahem, “tear” into these bundles:

I cut two sets of flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (Sizzix) and papers from the Adirondack collection. I ran them through my Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, then sanded a bit and gently distressed the edges to bring out the core color.  Then it was a mix ‘n match par-tay! (Sentiment: Hero Arts)

And here we go using the rest of the flowers:

See the border? On the top card I cut a border from the olive paper using Tim’s Scallops border die. For the bottom card I used the leftover piece from the first border! The light background on both cards is the envelope liner stamp from Hero Arts. The saying (one of my faves) is from Inkadinkado.

I made one more card before I went to sleep… this one using the glitter paper:

Isn’t that the perfect paper for the rock star sentiment?

Thanks for stopping by … come back next week to see some new stamps by the very talented Purmina G.
