Wow! it sure has been awhile.

I hadn't even realized how long it had been seen I stamped last. These weird hours I'm working are not leaving me with a lot of play time. I have made a promise to myself to show you something at least once a week. Let's see how I do. Today I want to show you some card stock I bought a month ago. Finally played with it this afternoon. It's called Coredinations. For those of you here in Florida, Linda sells it at Scrap and Stamp Art Studio in Lecanto.

Have you heard of it? I'm sure you have. But have you worked with it. Coredinations card stock comes in a bunch of colors. One side is textured and one color. The other side is smooth and another color.

Today I'm going to show you how to use it with your embossing folders. Cut a piece to size, stick it in the folder and run it through your machine.

Now take your sanding block and rub over the design. The back color will start to show through.

Examples of some of the looks you can get. It makes a nice soft background.

Here's a Halloween card I received yesterday from my friend Trish using the Coredinations. This is a great idea for those of you who don't like the ink pad to paper look when working with your embossing folders.
