Blog Hop w/Scor-pal & The Twinery




Today we are excited not only about our very first Scor-pal blog hop but also to be celebrating the first anniversary of our friends at The Twinery. These two teams have joined forces for an amazing line up of projects that will show you the wonderful things you can create using your Scor-pal along with baker’s twine from The Twinery! From boxes and bags to cards and 3D projects the creativity by these two teams is sure to please.

If you came here by way of Caroline Stender's blog, you are on the right track. If not, make sure you start at the beginning over at The Twinery's blog because there are terrific prizes for those who complete the hop by commenting on each blog. Since The Twinery is celebrating all week, you'll have five days to enjoy this hop, so relax and have fun!

These are the prizes being given away this week:

<

My project uses the Scor-pal to create a background of diamonds for my card and I've used various twines from The Twinery in my buttons and around my card.

I created the dark blue card base from cardstock and, using my Scor-pal, I scored the cardstock in half. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of cream cardstock and adhered that on top. I cut the light blue cardstock 5" x 5" and, using my Scor-pal, I scored on the angle every 1/4". Once done I flipped the cardstock and scored again, creating a nice diamond pattern for my card.

I stamped my image using the Justrite By The Sea set and colored it with Copic Markers and Spica pens. Using Nestabilities, I die cut the image and the scalloped ovals, lightly inking the edges with with Clearsnap's Mix'd Media Inx.



I added Cappuccino Twine around the center of the card, wrapping it twice, then tying it off at the left side. I then used Maraschino Twine to adhere the buttons to the upper left.

Close up of the scoring and the twine:


Supplies:
Cardstock: Core-dinations
Scoring tool: Scor-pal
Twine: The Twinery
Stamps: Justrite Stampers
Ink: Clearsnap Mix'd Media, Memento Tuxedo Black
Markers: Copics, Spica
Buttons: stash

I'm so glad you stopped by! I hope I've inspired you to give the Scor-pal a try.
Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog because there are terrific prizes for those who leave comments on each designer's blogs! The deadline for commenting is 11:59pm EST, Friday, August 19th.

Your next stop on the hop is Angelica Suarez's blog .

Enjoy.
