First Post!!!

Yikes! Can't believe I'm really joining the blog world. We'll see how this goes. :)

I thought I'd start my first post with the current Caardvarks challenge sponsored by Core'dination Cardstock. The challenge is to create a monochromatic project and the winner gets a 3 month designing gig with Core'dination! Wow!!! I decided to use some of the yummy Core'dination cardstock my Mom gave me for my Birthday/Christmas last year. So fun to work with!

Anyways, here are the cards I made for the challenge:

For this first card I sanded Cool Mint Truffle Core Color Core'dination cardstock BEFORE stamping on it, distressed the edges of the circles, and scored the edges of the card.

On the second card I used Barn Siding Whitewash Core'dination cardstock facing both directions in the Cuttlebug stylized flowers embossing folder so that I could sand the background in the main panel and the focal points in the side panels.

In my final card I used layers of torn Jelly Cupboard Whitewash Core'dination cardstock.

Stamps: Hero Arts. Ink:Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Cardstock: Core'dination

Thanks for stopping by! I still have LOTS to figure out with blogging... adding blinkies, making my pictures bigger, etc. I'm techie challenged. :)
