Blog Hop with Core’dinations December 5, 2013

Tombow is blog hopping this week with Core’dinations with some fun ideas and great prizes! If you just came from Kate’s Blog you are on the right track! If not, and you want a chance to win a prize, go back to Tombow’s Blog and follow the projects!

IMG_2358I made some cute little gift tags that show the beauty of the distressing on the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection. The birds were die cut from three colors of the cardstock and then pieced back together using the Dot Stamp Runner Adhesive. The dot adhesive is perfect to layer the tiny pieces together to make sure they hold while distressing. When using the Dot adhesive on small die cuts, the adhesive automatically applies to the die cut surface for perfect adhesion and no messy excess glue.

IMG_2361After the bird is put together, it is distressed with the Core’dination Sand-it Kit. The tag also uses the Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock and after the panels are adhered on and the rounded corners punched out, it is also sanded to reveal the kraft core. Here is a close-up of the tag, isn’t it cute? They will go perfectly with the Kraft wrapping paper I’m planning to use this year.

IMG_2363I used the Foam Tabs to give the bird a little dimension on the tag. The bird die cut that I used is from Elizabeth Craft Designs, but the technique would work on a variety of holiday themed die cuts.

    SUPER CUTE tags Marie 🙂
    LOVE your different types of Kraft Core layers and DELIGHTFUL layered birds – they look GORGEOUS with a touch of distressing and find it really interesting that you had the layers secured together before distressing them, sounds a lot less fiddly to manage, which is always good for delicate designs. The Dot Stamp Runner must be a very handy adhesive … I tend to get in quite a mess with excess adhesive and as a result use my piercing tool to try to minimise the damage, not always successfully though!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your crafty Christmas inspiration!!!
