My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

My Core'dinations Creative Frenzy started quite some time ago, but today I want to share with you a few projects for the Core dt call. 
I started this page by choosing Webster's Pages patterned papers and the combining them with Core'dinations cardstock that was a perfect match off white on the front with a gorgeous yellow on the back.   I matted my photo with the same paper with the white side showing. 
I then used the cricut and cut flourishes from the Picturesque cartridge.  I embossed the top layer of this flourished with the swiss dots folder and sanded the top layer.  For the bottom flourish I reversed the cut and used the yellow side as the top layer.  I added some color to the edges of the swirls with a yellow copic marker. 

For these flowers I used the picturesce cricut cartridge and cut them at 2 and 3 inches.  I embossed just the top layer of the flower with swiss dots and  added some copic color to the edges and to the die cut lines. 

I added dimension to the flourishes with foam dots.  By using the  back of the coordinations paper I was able to a add beautiful contrast. 

Another close up of the gorgeous flourish. 

I finished the flourishes by added some pearl dots. 

I finished the project by addings a gorgeous May Arts Ribbon bow and vintage stick pins. 

BINGO!  I love the vintage look of bingo cards.  I simply sanded the bingo card and used it for the base of my Birthday card.  I combined it with Jenni Bowlin Studio papers and embellishments for a perfect match. 
 I used core'dinations for the base of this lay out.  I slightly distressed the edges of the larger base paper.  I then stitched around the patterned paper.  For the larger flower embellishment I sanded it then inked the edges. 
Here you can see how perfectly the core matches the MME papers.

Ok, so I realize it said 3 projects but I just love using Core'dinations so much and on everthing I have one more project to share today.  I think I'm feelin' a little JBS vintage!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my Core'dnations Creative Frenzy as much as I did creating it!
