Win with Spellbinders & Core'dinations Blog Swap Day 3

Welcome to the Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!


This week Spellbinders™ has teamed up with Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together!

Today I have 2 simple coordinating projects to share with you! Thanksgiving is right around the corner for us Canadians, so I could not resist creating Thankful themed projects for this occasion!


I used 2 Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock packs for these projects...
My Minds Eye Lost and Found Collection
Jenni Bowlin Everyday Collection


In creating my card, I began with Spellbinders LF-161 Grand Labels One. I cut the card base from this and folded it in half. From there, I used the following die templates...
S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents
S4-348 Postage Stamps
S5-028 Nested Pennants
S4-328 FoliageLink


In creating the gift box, (which I see Christine Emberson and I both were thinking alike...) I used the following Spellbinders die templates:
LF-010 Square Bracket Edge Box
S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents
S4-348 Postage Stamps
S5-028 Nested Pennants
S4-328 Foliage



In working with Core'dinations cardstock, there are so many options!! I love the sanded look, as seen on the cream or brown colored papers. While on the red and gold I used ink to bring out the embossing! SO many options!!
I also loved the Core'dinations Dust Buddy for this project! This piece of cloth that cleans up the dust from your sanding! It is the first time I used it, but it will NOT be the last! It cleaned up every drop of dust without effort! You have to give it a try if you like sanding your papers!!
Bringing these two companies together, one can't help but create something beautiful... Try it and you'll see what all the fuss is about! :)

****************************************************************Sophistication, value and maximum versatility make Spellbinders™ die
templates #1. Beautiful Details Inspiring Creativity…Spellbinders unique
triple function die templates allow you to cut, emboss, and then stencil
through the die template for unlimited possibilities. The Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine and Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities™ die templates cut and emboss up to 11¾”, taking die cutting to grand proportions. Follow Spellbinders on Facebook , Twitter and the Spellbinders Blog!

Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only sandable cardstock with a color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core Essentials line comes in over 160 colors with matching color families. Or maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sandable core will shine through the unique black and brown colors once it is sanded. Core’dinations has also teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, BasicGrey, Graphic 45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that perfectly accents their patterned papers.

But there is more! Check out Core’dinations website for the new Cardmaker Series, Kraft-Core and various other wonderful cardstock lines.
