My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

Yesterday I was told about a Design Team Call at Core'dinations (thanks Vix!)... it ends tomorrow and I don't think I have even the teeniest tiniest chance of making the team, but my chances are slightly higher if I actually apply, so here goes...


For my first card I've used a LOTV stamp, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, with lots of glamour dust for sparkle.  Papers are First Edition 'up up and away'.  All coloured cardstock is obviously core'dinations.  The butterfly was cut with a MS punch, with pearls from my stash, sentiment from Craftwork Cards.  I've followed the sketch at I Love Promarkers for this one, so I'm entering my card there.


For this one I wanted to show how nicely stamps work on core'dinations, even though it's textured.  My card base is core'dinations (as is the rest of the cardstock) and I've used a Little Claire flower stamp and stamped all over the base in a slightly darker shade of yellow.  Then for the main image square I've stamped the flower in orange and the sentiment in red.


And my final card is 'one I made earlier'!  An embossed owl, simply sanded back to show off the design better... I love sanding core'dinations, it's so effective :o)

In all honesty, I think Core-dinations will probably be looking for people who do more 'interesting' things than I do, but you never know!  Fingers crossed eh?  Oh, here's the link for the DT call if any of you want to squeeze a quick entry in before it closes tomorrow!

Off to catch up with some of your blogs now...
