Hard Core Crop – Let’s All Play Along!!!

Welcome to the Core’dinations Hard Core Crop! Make sure you grab your blinkie and wear it proudly ALL WEEK LONG! Core’dinations is offering a prize to one person using it as their Facebook profile photo so grab it here and head over to the Facebook event page and let them know.


If you have joined us before the rules work pretty much the same. 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.

Now who wants to get crafty?

My challenge is all about  gratitude cards or layouts about gratitude in which you use an autumn color palette.  Let’s craft some cards together which we can promptly mail off to loved ones!   They can be for Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it) or to thank someone special with a card perfectly suited for my absolutely favorite season of the year.  If you are a layout person, feel free to do a layout instead, or in addition!

My challenge is easy – 1) feature Core’dinations Cardstock on your gratitude card/layout and 2) use an autumn palette of colors.

By participating in this challenge, one lucky winner will get this awesome pack of Core’dinations Cardstock!


Just in case you need some inspiration for this challenge, I crafted this card for the event!

VivianKehAutumnPalette_AA single Darice embossing folder helped me integrate some nice leafy texture for each Core’dinations “Shattered” Collection panel.  In this case, I found that debossing gave a more dramatic effect.

VivianKehAutumnPalette_BI haven’t gotten enough of this Sizzix Thinlit die – LURVE.

VivianKehAutumnPalette_DI didn’t feel so much like adding another element just for my sentiment, nor did I want to obscure the dry embossing, so I stamped “merci” all over the birds.

VivianKehAutumnPalette_C A little stitching, some buttons, plus a bit of distress ink for a handsome autumn card!  I’m so looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the challenge!
