Blog Hop

Today the design teams of Scor-Pal and My Favorite Things are engaged in a blog hop. Check out what all the designers have done this month.





For my first card, I used a I used a premade card from DCWV which I thought would be a perfect compliment to the MFT stamp and die combo (You're Just My Type) with all the varied letters.



Using my Scor-Pal, I scored down approximately 1" from the top edge, then scored 3 lines up from the bottom edge. A little black ink across the lines really helps them stand out.

I used a Spellbinders Circle Die to cut the black circle and added it to the front of the card as a base for the images.



The typewriter and sentiment were stamped and embossed with Colorbox Donna Salazar Black Inx and Embossing Powder and then die cut with the coordinating Die-namics die from MFT. Pop dots were added behind the typewriter for some dimension.


Supplies:
Scoring Tool: Scor-Pal
Stamps, die: My Favorite Things
Ink, Embossing Powder: Colorbox, Donna Salazar Black
Card: DCWV
Cardstock: Bazzill

This next card is an easel card, which is so easy to make using my Scor-Pal. I cut my cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11, then scored it in half to create the card. I then scored 2 3/4" up on the top panel and folded it down to create the easel. A top panel cut 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" created the top layer.



I stamped MFT's Sunflower Girl on white cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. I die cut her into an oval shape and die cut coordinating panels to mat her, adding foam adhesives between the layers. A ribbon around the center and several stickpins finished her off nicely.



I used coordinating dies for the sentiment which is also from the Sunflower Girl stamp set.


Supplies:
Scoring Tool: Scor-Pal
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Ink: Colorbox, Chestnut Roan
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper: DCWV
Pins: Fiskars
Ribbon: Stash

Thanks for stopping by. Now be sure to head back to Scor-Pal for a list of all the designers' work. And don't forget there are prizes to be given away.
