Spellbinders & 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 CoreCardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together! For more details and information please visit the Spellbinders blog.
For my project, I decided to make a trio of tags, using the Ironwork Motifs die templates, with pink & ivory Core' dinations cardstock.  Once I cut/embossed the cardstock, I sanded the edges, which helps in exposing the embossed edge.  The, "Noel" stamp is from the Technique Tuesday stamp set called Believe, stamped in black ink.  I layered the die cuts using foam tape, and finished them off by adding twine and Want2Scrap ivory pearls.

Sophistication, value and maximum versatility make Spellbinders™ die templates #1. Beautiful Details Inspiring Creativity…Spellbinders unique triple function die templates allow you to cut, emboss, and then stencil through the die template for unlimited possibilities. The Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine and Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities™ die templates cut andemboss up to 11¾”, taking die cutting to grand proportions. Follow Spellbinders on Facebook , Twitter and the Spellbinders Blog.  


Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock is the only sand able cardstock with acolor 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, Basic Grey, 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 card stock lines.Follow Core’dinations on their blogwebsite, and Facebook page.
