Core Cards Creative Frenzy!!!

So apparently I decided to take the summer off from blogging.
What's up internets?
Everyone okay?

I had to pop in here, and post some stuff for one of my design teams, so ignore this post if you were looking for something less project-y from me.

The kids start school in a couple of weeks, and I will be back then. With a vengeance!

I haven't even shared all my England pictures with you! HA!
I owe you.

There will be things for you to read while you are eating your cold cereal in front of your computer monitor. Soon.
I have plenty to say, and should have the time-- most likely as I recover from the skin cancer I am sure I have accumulated.

In the meantime, here are some cards I made using some Core'dinations cardstock.
If you like making cards, I would suggest you give the Core'dinations cardstock CARD design team a whirl.
I have been on a few design teams in my day, and none of them have ever treated me better than Core'dinations.
Here is a link to the details:

First off, is a baby card.
I used some Whitewash Cardstock for the top of the card. I embossed it with a Darice embossing folder. Then I punched the circle window in the card, and strung the tags over the window. The whole thing is mounted on some Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock.
This is just a close up of the detail on the card.
Next up, I utilized a card base, and turned it into a mini-album. I stitched some Core'dinations Tags into the inside of the card for the "pages."
For the outside of the album, I used Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock that was embossed using another Darice embossing folder. I also embossed the hearts on the tags. When you add embossed shapes that are the same color as the base they are attached to, I think it looks really cool.
Opening the "card/book."

Just more detail shots:

The last one is just a generic card.
That's all. Sorry for popping in, and not really saying a lot. I am going to milk the last couple weeks of summer out of August!

I'll be back. Save my spot.
