Hey All! Hope all is well in your parts of the world. Thanks for all the nice things you guys posted on the Faerie post Monday. You were all so sweet as usual!
Whenever I find something that I was not aware of and find it to be majorly AWESOME, I am compelled to share it with you. Well, this is one of those times. I'm sure some of you know that this product exists, but there may be many of you like me who didn't have a clue. This post is all about this product which is now one of my most favorites.
The product is called "Core' Dinations". It is the coolest card stock I have ever used. Here is the pad I purchased:
It is a card stock with a complimentary core color. This particular pad has 80 sheets 2 each of 40 different colors. I LOVE THIS STUFF! Are you ready to see what I made with it???? Take a look at these:
Is this the neatest effect or what??? I simply ran the paper through each of my CB folders, trimmed them, and then used a sanding block on the embossed image. They turned out so rich and beautiful. This is so much easier that inking up your folders to get this effect, and it gives you a nicer look than white core because the color you get is a coordinated color. Here is a couple of pics for you to see the sanded part a little closer:
I just can't get over how these turned out. Fast and easy with such a great look. No stamping. . . except for the sentiment. You will see at the bottom of each card I left a blank space for any sentiment I choose. Here is a pic of the entire set:
As it says on the cover of the paper, it is so versatile. You can use it as is, emboss and sand the image, antique it, tear it, crumple it up for a great effect, etc. You know me a note card sets. . . I think these in an A2 size with just the embossed panel and ribbon would make a wonderful set.
Don't let the price stop you. Even though the price you see on the pic of the product says $29.99, I bought it from Hobby Lobby when they had their paper on sale for 50% off. That made it very reasonable! The card stock also comes in smaller quantities and in different color combos. If you would like to get more information on this, click here for their website. They even have a video showing how it can be used.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this. Again, thanks for coming to see me and don't forget the pic of the week below! I think this one may be one of my most favorite shots simply because of the lighting that I caught.
That's it for now! I'll be seeing you on your blogs to leave ya some love! LOL
