Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap

Welcome to the Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

CoreHeaderSwap_Email

This week Spellbinders™ has teamed up with our Core’dinations Color Core
Cardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together! For more details and information please visit the Spellbinders blog.

Coredinations Blog Hop Card

For my project today, I used Core’dinations Black Magic cardstock and Spellbinders newest product, Grand Impressabilities. (Grand Impressabilities will be available for shipping starting 10-6)

Coredinations Blog Hop Card CU embossing

Black Magic cardstock is black, with a colored core. By embossing the cardstock and then sanding away the raised surfaces, you bring out the core color. The results are beautiful and elegant.
GI-003 Sea Flowers was the Grand Impressabilities used, along with S4-310 Labels Eighteen.

To see how to create this piece of cardstock here is a quick video tutorial:

Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only sand able cardstock with a
color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core
Essentials line comes in over 160 colors with matching color families. Or
maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black
Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sand able core will shine through the
unique black and brown colors once it is sanded. Core’dinations has also
teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, BasicGrey,
Graphic 45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that
perfectly accents their patterned papers.But there is more! Check out Core’dinations website for the new Cardmaker Series, Kraft-Core and various other wonderful cardstock lines.
