Core Cards Creative Frenzy

I love working with Core'dinations cardstock!  It can add so much texture and dimension.

This wedding card was made to match the colors of the couple's invitations.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the brown Core'dinations background then lightly sanded to reveal the beautiful core.  Spellbinders dies were used for the sentiment and the hearts and music score layers.  I left the sentiment in the die after I cut and embossed it, then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa in the openings and a gold gel pen on the swirls.  Stamps by Gina K and Michael's $ stamp sentiment.

This card was very quick and easy to put together.  I used Core'dinations WhiteWash for the base and stamped the chevron by Gina K - Pretty Patterns in Memento Teal Zeal ink.  Used the Herringbone Cuttlebug folder on the turquoise and navy strips and lightly sanded them as well as the sentiment base.  The frame around the sentiment is also a Cuttlebug folder.  The buttons are Sizzix dies and tied with baker's twine.

I received this image through Wish Rak at Splitcoaststampers.  I colored it with Touch Twin Markers then covered the couple and the sand with a VersaMark pen and heat embossed with clear ep.  Then I masked and sponged the background and added some white gel pen squiggles on the water.  Stamped the sentiment and frame by Gina K and cut it out by hand and layered over the Spellbinders Pennants die cut.  Stamped and colored the starfish by Gina K then cut out and covered with Distress Stain in Antique Linen.  The background is Core'dinations embossed with the Cuttlebug Mesh folder and lightly sanded.  Added some washi tape that I couldn't wait to use.
This is also for the Crazy Challenge CCH#125
and The Creative Belli Challenge
