Core'dinations Cardstock

I love the Core'dination Color Core Cardstock. There is so many things you can do with it. On this layout I tried ripping the Black Magic Collection cardstock so that it is black but when I ripped it the green shows. I also used my Cuttlebug and embossed the same paper to make the alien. Once I embossed it I gently go over it with sandpaper and the dots turn green. I think it is magical paper! The yellow and white paper that I used for the sun and the clouds is from the Gemstone Collection. It is shiny on one side and matte on the other so when you tear it it gives it a cool effect.

I used the Every Day Paper Doll cartridge for the alien and the spaceship. I used Indie Art for the flame coming out of the spaceship. I also used the Pooh Font for all of the words. Then highlighted all of it with my FAVORITE white pen from Signo. (Everyone should own this pen!)

Life is Good!

I am sorry it has been so long since I have been able to post. Life sometimes throws a curve ball at you! My son got very sick and then was getting better and then had complications from his antibiotic. It was scary but I am so grateful that he is doing GREAT now! He went back to school this week and so I am going to get back to creating! I have really missed it!

It is a little overwhelming trying to figure out what I want to do so I started surfing blogs for inspiration! That is my favorite thing to do! I went to Stephanie Castro's blog and besides some amazing cards, she is doing blog candy! Go check it out and wish her a happy birthday too!

I will start posting some creations as soon as I start making them! Off to surf more blogs!
