Core'dinations Love

Hello all,

I hope you all have fun plans for Thanksgiving. I'll be hanging out with family and then hitting the black Friday shopping with my boyfriends mom. I'm sure it'll be fun. Do you have any fun plans?

The card I'm sharing today is based around our Core'dinations Cardstock. If you've never used this cardstock from Stampin' Up! you're missing out. It's this great card stock that is thick and sandable, one side is textured the other side is smooth and the inside layer is a monochromatic color. You can reveal the inside color by sanding, tearing or distressing. It's so much fun to play with and completely adds a different look to projects. We sell packs of the core'dinations cardstock based on our color families. I first got the neutrals packs because neutrals go with everything, but I bought more quickly. It's so cool!

Stamp Sets: Hello, Lovely
Card Stock: Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, Smoky Slate Core'dinations
Ink: Smoky Slate
Accessories: Alphabet Press embossing folder,7/16" Trim, Paper Piercing Tool and Essentials pack, Decorative Label punch, Stampin' Sanding system

See how the background is distressed? Yeah that's it. Haha! I used the alphabet press embossing folder on the smoky slate core'dinations cardstock and then used our stampin' sanding block on the paper. Don't you think it adds a cool effect?

Have a wonderful week and a fantastic thanksgiving!

I freakin' love you!


I'm so glad to finally be able to take some time and share a new card with you all! With my crazy school schedule I've been rush crafting a lot lately which unfortunately doesn't leave me a lot of time to blog. However, I HAVE been able to keep my Instagram updated with almost every new project and card I've made. So if you're unhappy with the frequency of my blog updates during school time (which I'm truly sorry for) then follow me on Instagram to get plenty of cool crafts almost daily! My username is SwishandStamp. There's a link in the right column of my blog too! :)

Moving on to an awesome card! I made this card for my boyfriend, Kaleb. We were celebrating one year of being together. He's so extremely supportive of my crazy addiction to stamping and crafting and I'm so grateful for that. Anyway, I wanted to make him a card that was sort of fun and silly and it had to have penguins (they're his favorite animal haha). I decided to make a slider card! These cards are so cool! The penguin on the front spins around back and forth across the card, I plan to make an instructional YouTube video on these cards soon so check back and I'll keep you updated. ;)

Stamp Sets: Yippee-Skippee!
Card Stock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Staz On Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Owl Builder punch, Word Window punch

I tried to get a few good pictures so you can see that he spins! I'm seriously in love with this little penguin and the card turned out way better than I thought it was going to.

If you want to purchase any of the supplies used to make this card or anything else from Stampin' Up! you can shop 24/7 in my online store, HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
