Product Spotlight - Tim Holtz Core'dinations Cardstock

Afternoon all

Over at Crafter's Companion this week they will be featuring this awesome new cardstock on Create and Craft TV, and as usual they kindly sent me some goodies to have a little play with.

Most of you probably know what this is all about, but for those that don't, here's the blurb:

"This stunning 12"x12" cardstock pack is the result of Core'dinations teaming up with Tim Holtz and Ranger to bring you a collection of the most popular Distress colours. This Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection contains one sheet each of thirty six differnet colours and is sandable with no white core. "

You can nab yourselves a pack of this for £19.99 over at the Crafter's Companion website.

Meanwhile here are a few of the samples I've thrown together.

Obviously Core'dinations cardstock really comes into it's own when it is embossed and sanded to reveal the coloured core. On this card I have embossed a brick design onto the background, sanded it back and then inked certain areas using Brushed Cordoroy Distress Ink. It is also great for die cutting and tearing, as you can see on this card.

More embossing and sanding, all inked up with a good helping of the matching Distress Inks..

It is also a good weight at 240 gsm, so can easily be scuffed up on the edges using either a blade or your distressing tool, without giving the harsh look of a white core...

It also scores and folds without the surface tearing, making it ideal for all types of projects. On this one I've also sanded back some of the edges to roughen it up a bit and make it a bit less pretty

Anyway for lots more tips and tricks be sure to tune into the shows later this week - I'll let you know when they're on when I know :)

Happy hugs xxxxxxxxxxx
