Stampendous & Core'Dinations Collaboration





I have another fun Stampendous project for you today. This week, Stampendous and Core'Dinations Cardstock are collaborating with a week of projects and a blog hop on Saturday. 

When cardstock is as beautiful as Core'Dinations Gemstones, I like to let it speak for itself. I embossed the blue panel and lightly sanded the raised portions of the design. I also added an embossed box and 1/8 inch in on my card base. I added some fun ribbon, a sentiment by Stampendous and some clear rhinestones. This fresh color combo comes to you courtesy of I DON'T WANT SUMMER TO BE OVER! 

Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Impressions Blog and all the rest for great inspiration and don't forget to comment--there will be prizes, I hear.

Bless Your Heart, Mary Dawn, I love summer too. Boy we had a hot one this year on S.W. Missouri. I love your embossing and I did notice the edge embossing too, I still need to try this, it adds just that little extra detail. And I really need to get cooking on some Bday cards. ;) Thanks for this embossing inspiration. I have quite a few folders and just never seem to use them!

Great summer colors, it's officially over in Utah today with lots of rain...the embossed edge is a nice touch, and I really like the font on this sentiment...in fact I used it on a card I finished last night!
