New: Coredinations Cardstock

Stampin'UP!'s new Core'dinations Cardstock. This is a sandable card stock you can use to create an antiqued, distressed, color-popping look. The outside layers are exclusive Stampin’ Up!® colors - one side is textured and the other side is smooth. But the inside layer is a light contrast color which you can reveal by sanding, tearing, or distressing.  

Thats where the name Core'dinations comes from  . . .  it refers to the inner core color. The rest of the name indicates that it coordinates with Stampin'UP!'s other great colors.  This new Core'dinations paper comes in Early Espresso, Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler.

The Early Espresso piece on this card was distressed with Stampin'UP!'s new Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I didn't even need to do any sanding on this card. The embossing folder was actually enough to expose the lighter core on the paper.

I really love the images on this card. We live on a farm and this card really feels "homey" to me. We even have an old fashioned water pump like this on our farm. And the Linen Thread reminds me of baler twine (you know the rope used to hold together hay bales).

The image is from a stamp set called Countryside. It was water-colored on water color paper.
FYI:  Stampin'UP!'s inks are all water soluble so the image itself was stamped in Staz-ON ink, which is permanent, so it wouldn't bleed when it was water-colored.

The sentiment is from a stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. All 24 sentiments in this set are sized to work with the Word Window Punch (white) and the Modern Label Punch (red).
