Core Cards Creative Frenzy!!

Hello Everyone!!!!

This post is a submission for a fabulous DT call !!!
I think CARDSTOCK is a very  important thing when it comes to cardmaking....
I'm a bit fussy about my cardstocks!!!
It should be sturdy, good quality, great colors and of nice texture.
One of my favorite cardstocks are CORE'DINATIONS Color Core ones!!!
I love  them!!!
The other day I came across their DT call post ....WOW!!! I had to try it out!!
So here are my Core'dination projects!!!


Core'dinations cardstock comes in wide variety of colors & color duos.
For this card I just used simple tear-off technique.
Tore off the edges of the different cardstock stripes and adhered it to the white cardstock; 
Someone once told me that colorcore cardstocks are great for embossing and sanding only..... but I think they're great for THIS technique too!!! 
Simple ..just need fingers no fancy tools!!

Project #2:
 Core'dinations cardstock comes in wide range of PRE -EMBOSSED variety!!!
No need of any embossing machine....just choose the correct embossed cardstock and use it for your projects!!
You can sand it for a beautiful look as I did for this card.
Then I used it for diecutting too!! Very Sturdy cardstock , great for die cutting & embossing!!

Project #3:
I embosssed and sanded the colorcore cardstock for this card.
For sanding  I used a very simple and inexpensive tool..... A dollar store Nail file.
Its a super easy technique and gives a great effect to your projects!!
You must be thinking ...Okay!! these cardstocks are for special use only...NO , they can be used as regular cardstock too!!!
Like how I used  the reverse side for stamping my sentiment, its perfectly smooth for crisp stamped image and super easy to match up  the colors in the project.
Also punched the leaves out of the same colorcore cardstock.

All stamps used for these cards are from HeroArts!!!

Here are some projects I did earlier...

If you haven't used Core'dinations Color Core cardstock yet...Give it a try, you'll love them!!!

I have to order some new Kraft Core Cardstock  soon!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Wish me Luck!
