Core'dinations Blooms with Xyron

Today's card is one that I created featuring Core'dinations card stock and Xyron Adhesive.  I adore the way you can get such detail with Core'dinations colored cored paper.  Look how it really makes my embossed paper pop.  The flower paper background is all card stock created by embossing and sanding...isn't it divine.  Speaking of sanding, if you don't own one of Core'dinations Sand it Gadget...good lands get one.  They are wonderful and I must say it is one of my favorite tools, I use it all the time.  

The ribbon was folded in half and glued together using Xyron's double sided tape.  It made adding my ribbon so quick and easy.  

The flower was stamped and cut multiple times, fussy cutting each layer.  I think it really looks like it blooming out of the card, don't you think?

I'm amazed that this whole card was done with solid card stock and between stamping, sanding and embossing I was able to create this detailed creation.  WOW!!!

Here is a complete list of supplies I used:

Home Sweet Home Frame

Today I wanted to share a home décor project I created for Xyron.  This fall themed frame was so fun and easy to make.  Using Xyron Adhesives I laid twine along a frame, added some beautiful ribbon from May Arts and then topped it all off with a handmade flower.  The stamped sentiment center is from Close To My Heart.  It's always fun to alter a home item, so what do you have around your house that you could spruce up with some crafting?
