Core'dinations & Imaginisce Blog Hop Day 2

Core'dinations and Imaginisce have teamed up this week to bring you lots of inspirations!  Each day of the hop the designers share their fantastic designs using Core'dinations AND Imaginisce products.  There is an awesome prize from both companies, too!  Random winners will be chosen from those that hop and likes both Core'dinations and Imaginisce on Facebook. 


For the hop, I am sharing a layout and card.  The layout is chock-full of Core'dinations Darks,  Chocolate Box and Distress Collections, along with Imaginisce Outdoor Adventure Collection.  This was the perfect pairing for a winter hike layout of my hubby.   The title work was created by sanding a piece of Chocolate Box and then stamping the alphas.  The alphas were hand-cut, as were the trees in the border.  I added a bit of white chalking ink as the snow on the trees. If you look close, you can see where I used some Imaginisce Glam Rocks as punctuation.


For my birthday card, I used scrap cardstock from the layout above to create the fun circle die cuts.  The sentiment is stamped on the smooth backside af a piece of Core'dinations Snowflake.  Imaginisce Pearl Glam Rocks were randomly added as an accent.  Love that pop of white on the bright Core'dinations papers!  


I had so much fun creating with Core'dinations and Imaginisce and hope you enjoyed my projects. Don't forget to leave comments and like both Core'dinations and Imaginisce on Facebook to be eligible for the prizes!  Next up on the hop is the very talented Tracy Gruber.
