Core’dination. What is it? How do I use this paper?
Q: I see in the Holiday Catalog some new paper called Core’dination. What is it? How do I use this paper?
Stampin’ Up’s regular cardstock has a solid color throughout the paper, so if you cut, rip, or tear it, the inside color is the same as the outside. The new Core’dination paper comes in three exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors (on the outside) with a coordinating monochromatic color on the inside layer. It comes in a 12 x 12 size, so it’s great to add to your scrapbook pages. The Core’dination cardstock has one smooth side and one textured side. So, you can stamp on the smooth side like normal paper. To reveal the coordinating paper underneath:
1. You can emboss the cardstock with an embossing folder or a texture plate. Then sand the embossed part to show off the underneath color.
2. You can also tear the edge to show off the core or simply sand the edges.
3. You can use your Simply Scored scoring tool or diagonal plate to create a pattern and then sand the raised scored lines.
4. Pull out your old Stampin’ Up! Crimper and crimp it.
5. Crinkle the paper by hand: wad up the paper, smooth it out, and sand the ridges.
6. Put chipboard words or images under the card stock and then sanded top of cardstock by pressing down. This is like dry embossing. It will reveal the pattern of the chipboard.
I hope this gives you a good start on how to use the new Core’dination Cardstock. Remember to make clean up easy, use the Core’dinations Dust Buddy to pick up all your sanding pieces.
