Coredinations is AMAZING card stock. I knew this before a large box of it arrived at my door for this challenge, but now I know for sure that it is VERY AMAZING. I love to distress things, and this card stock made me smile while I sanded and crumpled and attacked it with my scissor edge. If you haven’t used it before, you NEED to try it. BEG your LSS to get it in.
It has a matching coloured core that magically appears when you distress it. It’s usually one or two shades lighter than the card stock itself, so it looks great when it shows through.
And that’s just the regular stuff. The Black Magic card stock is SUPER cool! Check it out at their website….COREDINATIONS.COM.
As for getting your hands on some, I’ve heard that Amy has a good stock of it at All That Scraps.

So did you guess the challenge yet? It’s CARD STOCK ONLY!!! Yikes this was hard for me. I really didn’t know how much I depended on my patterned paper!! I should have dragged out my Stampin’Up catalogue for inspiration…..arg. Should have thought of that earlier.

All my cards are done with Odd Bird Planet stamps this week. SO FUN!

Anyhoo, go to CAARDVARKS and check out the rest of the details.

Thanks for coming by to look….have a GREAT weekend!

    now see, i was *SHOCKED* to hear you say you had to work hard on this one…both based on your results (THOSE ARE FABBBBULOUS CARDS!) and the fact that i think of you as such an “uber-stamper”…but then isn’t it funny the things that turn out to be harder than ya thought?! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
