card with Core-dination card stock

hello crafters
a little card using just 1 sheet of the core-dination card stock from Crafters Companion

i cut out a square and cut in half ......... i gave 1 triangle some wellie ... scrunched it upto an inch of its life and boy does that feel good!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sanded it to reveal the core then matted it onto the plain card stock with the other triangle that was left as it came out of the pad....added my peel offs then embossed the core card and sanded it.....cut into 2" squares and matted them onto mirri card using the embossed and de bossed ..

all will be revealed very soon so please do keep popping by
im waiting for glue and glitter to dry so i have just popped in and post coffee in hand ......

thought i would share another core-dination sample for Crafter Companion
this one was made from one single sheet of card stock peel offs gems a MS punch nestie die embossing folder and contrasting Tim Holtz distressing ink
i hope i have shown with a little bit of light sanding and embossing and inking how versatile this card stock is......
the embossing is so sharp
it takes very little effort to get so many different effects on one card

Tim Holtz core-dination card

good evening everyone
im late in posting today its been tad manic here lol .

here is a sample i have done using the Tim Holtz Cordination card stock from Crafters Companion here i used the 3 shades of pink i had been sent.
it matches perfectly with all the Distressing inks so you have the best of both worlds. do try the card stock its truly yummy the colours are devine.
you caun't see in picture but the heart is cut out of a 8x8 blank card  then backed in sparkly velum  so the flower looks as if its floating on front  then edged in peel offs .

the flower i cut out several of the flowers in different sizes with my slice scrunched each one (oh that felt so good ) and believe me i did all but stamp on it with my foot you can truly give it some wellie doesnt hurt it at all!!!!! in fact it looks better the more you do to it ....
then went in with the inks to add extra detail and depth to the deeper shade of pink card layered them up useing crafters companion gel

i do appologise for the quality of the photo it was getting late and i needed to get them packed ready to send off
the butterfly's were die cut with its own embossing arranged around the heart added a few crystal beads to the centre for that bit of sparkle
hopefully i have shown that even though the tim holtz card stock was designed for distressing you can go really soft and gentle at the same time...
thank you for popping bt
