My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

I found myself at Ben Franklin again, and this time I'm blaming Karen!  Here are a few cards with some new goodies.


This card uses is for the All Things Unity "buttons" challenge.  I love kraft and red together. 



Literal girl over here saw the couches with this week's Play Date Cafe colors and reached for the couch! Love how the sanding of the core'dinations card stock lets the green pop through.


And this one doesn't have a challenge, but I was inspired by the recent PTI release and figured since I already had a rocket ship stamp I should put it to use.  

Materials: 1st card: All Things Unity Life Is Fabulous frame and sentiment, Tim Holtz Ornamental die, PTI button die, Core'dinations red card stock, PTI kraft card stock, black card stock from stash, Twinery charcoal twine, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Versafine black ink

2nd card: PTI On My Couch couch and throw pillow, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, vellum, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Core'dination card stock, corner rounder, Versafine black ink

3rd card: PTI By the Numbers die, PTI cloud dies, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Paper Source rocket ship, Cord'inations card stock, PTI Kraft card stock, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, Versafine black ink
