Hello everybody. I hope you are getting a good start to your week. Last night was one of those rare nights that I didn’t sleep well – it took forever to fall asleep, and then I was up at 3:40 am yuck! Well, since I am UP, I have no excuse to miss the opportunity to work off my belly at zumba this morning lol! I digress from my purpose here this morning. I wanted to let you all know that we at Core’dinations have a blog swap with the wonderful folks at Xyron this week. Lots of inspiration from the designers on both teams that I hope you will check out. Shaunte and I are featured at Core’dinations today, and I wanted to give you some more detailed info on my project, if you are interested!
As you probably know already, for awhile now, I’ve been playing non-stop with my “Black Magic” 6×6 pack from Core’dinations. I had just about nothing left, except for the sheets that had the black top and the white core. Lucky for me I saved these for last.
You can customize the white core with the application of inks in your preferred palette of colors!!!
And these are my leaves coming out the bottom, ready to stick. So convenient!
I adhered the card front to the base with my Xyron Mega Runner.
I am making good progress on Thanksgiving cards, using a selection of clear stamps I had on hand from last year. The nuts and leaves are from a TPC set, and the sentiment is Inkadinkado. Both were stamped with white pigment ink. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece that I had die-cut using a Sizzix Bigz “Gift Tags” Die #658730. And the dry embossing in my background was done with a Sizzix “Fancy & Floral” Embossing folder #657197.
Hope you enjoyed my inspiration today!
