Hard Core Crop Challenge #9

Are you having fun at our very FIRST Hard Core Crop?!??!!?!?!?

The Master Challenge list is here. And we are chatting away here on Facebook. FUN FUN FUN!

My Challenge is all about Pinterest! If you love it as much as we do then check out our Boards here! We have one board called our Hard Core Projects board and that is where we pin projects from our Hard Core Fans that we LOVE!

So, naturally, I went there for my inspiration. I loved this layout from Rebecca Keppel. I have known Rebecca for a few years now. She has such a clean sense of style and, well, she just rocks! Check out her blog HERE for some more awesome projects!!! I love how she used the Core Impressions in the same pattern but different colors. And of course all that Sanding makes a Core girl like me HAPPY!

Here is the piece I lifted:

And Here is my layout. I LOVED the grid-like pattern. I am drawn to cleaner lines
and geometric shapes so you can see why I loved it so much!
Thanks, Rebecca!!!!

Remember to always Scor from the back. I scor'd two lines at 4" and then turned the Cardstock and did it again.

Now turn it over and sand! By scoring from the back, the raised lines are on the front to show off that gorgeous Core!

Next, I took some Glitter Silk, Core Essentials and Vintage cardstock and cut three, 3.5" squares.

Make sure you emboss and distress some! Our Glitter Silk Cardstock looks GORGEOUS embossed!!!!

So...for my challenge...I challenge you to head over to our Pinterest Boards and pick something that inspires you and create! If you don't have Pinterest, feel free to use this layout or head over to our Designer's Galleries and find something to lift.

You must post your challenge entry to the link here. You can do a layout..card...altered is the limit! Just use some Core'dinations Cardstock and follow the challenge guidelines. HAVE FUN!!!!

And I am giving away this! It is smooth, silky and cuts like butter!
I can't get enough of it!

I really enjoyed your Pinterest challenge, Ellen. The most difficult part was deciding which project I wanted to CASE; the Hard Core Projects board is loaded with fun inspiration. I am hooked on pennant flags lately, so I went in that direction ;)
