Good morning! I wanted to share a quick paper piecing layout and video with you using Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock. By using Core'dinations for diecuts, it allowed me to add great dimension to this owl by sanding the edges and embossing and sanding his chest. This is where it pays to have WAY too many embossing folders in your stash!
Supplies: Core'dinations Kraft-Core cardstock and Sand-It Gadget tool, Sizzix owl die, Stampin' Up!/Sizzix letter dies, Quickutz letter embossing folder and branch die, Cuttlebug embossing folder (for owl's chest), We R' Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool (to add small holes to the blue strip), Uniball white pen, Xyron adhesive, American Crafts layering tape, Font: Mason.
Helpful Hints: To create the tiny holes in the blue border strip I used my We R' Memory Keepers' Sew Easy tool. I ran the basic straight-stitch hole maker over the strip and then lightly sanded to reveal the kraft paper core.
Here is a link to the "look who's reading" video (and some other great ones!) on the Core'dinations website. http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/about/howto_videos/core-class/ Be sure to visit the Core'dinations site often to keep up to date on all the new videos that are uploaded.
Happy sanding! ~ Sarah Hodgkinson
