Whether this is your first time or you are a returning Hard Core Cropper PLEASE make sure you head over to the Core blog for a full list of rules HERE. They are pretty straight forward..you must use Core visibly on your projects, upload using the linky at the bottom of this post by midnight November 10th EST, and follow my challenge rules but please make sure you follow the rules and check them out on the Core blog. BUT the most important rule...is to CREATE AND HAVE FUN! smile.gif

If you would like to see a full list of the challenges head over the Core blog HERE for a list that will be updated continually throughout the weekend.

Alrighty, now that we have the housekeeping stuff done.... are you ready to get crafty?  I couldn't stop creating, so I have a couple of examples for you!
My challenge is to create a project using your stamps and Core!

One of my favorite color combos <3

For my first card, I kept it simple and really let the Core shine!   For the base, I used some turquoise Spotted Tillie Dot and sanded the embossed dots.  I used some gray card stock from the Neutrals pack and I did stamp it with some Hero Arts Soft Granite ink and the hexagon backdrop from the Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops set.  As it dried though, it disappeared right into the card stock and now it is barely visible :(  I also embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and cut the hexagon out with a Spellbinder's die.  I used the Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABC stamp set to stamp "hi" on a piece of yellow card stock and then fussy cut it out.

I had to use the little fox image from Lawn Fawn because they are so popular right now!

I used the Core white bookmark and cut off a little from the end and use it up-side down.  I stamped the arrows with a Hero Arts background stamp and Cup O' Joe Hero Arts Shadow ink.  I then added the sentiment and ribbon from May Arts.  The background is brown paper from the Neutrals Essentials Collection and embossed and sanded.

I kept my final card pretty simple and created a fun background with lots of Core.  I actually have a video to go with this one that will be posted in a few days.

I stamped the Whale from Lawn Fawn on a piece of gray Core card stock from the Neutrals Essentials paper pack.  I then embossed it and sanded it to create texture.  The background is created the same way.

So….Are you ready to play along?????

One lucky winner will get this awesome pack of Core'dinations Cardstock!


I cannot wait to see your projects with Core'dinations card stock and stamping!  You can create a card, layout, or altered item and link it below!  Have fun!
