Scor-pal and Hampton Arts

This was my post for the Scor-pal and Hampton Arts blog hop.  Check the Scor-pal blog for lots of inspiration.

With the hurricane devastation we recently experienced here in New York and the second storm that dropped 3-8 inches of snow this week, I thought I'd create a bright and cheery card using my Scor-pal and this awesome Woodlands stamp by Hampton Arts.

I began by cutting green cardstock to fit the base of the card, then cutting beige cardstock slightly smaller.  I scored 1/2" around the edges of the beige cardstock and inked it with brown ink to highlight the scored lines.  Using a Scor-pal makes perfect scored lines every time.

I stamped the image in black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder, then used Copic Markers to color in the image.  I trimmed the image so that when it was added to a brown mat, it would fit inside the scored lines.

I finished the interior of my card by cutting cardstock 5 3/4" x 4 1/4", then scored 1/2" around the edges with my Scor-pal and inked the edges with brown ink to highlight the scored lines.

Using the Hampton Arts Blessed Beyond Measure Stamp, I inked up "Blessed" and used that for my interior sentiment.

For my next project, I created popcorn treat packages. These were so much fun to make so I created 3 of them to give away.

Begin by cutting cardstock 9" x 6".
Place the 9" length across your Scor-pal and score at 2 1/4", 2 1/2", 6 1/2" and 6 3/4".

Cut pattern paper as folows:
1 Front panel: 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"
2 Back panels: 2" x 5 1/2"
Add these panels to the base cardstock, fitting them within the scored lines
Decorate the front as desired. 
For one package, I fussy cut a leaf from pattern paper and added it to the front with Scor-tape.  For the other two, I die cut an oval and embossed it before adding it to the front with Scor-tape. 
On each of them I used Hampton Art's stamp Continuous Small Treats which I stamped in black ink.

Fold on the scored lines and apply Scor-tape along one edge to seal the package in the back.   Using a Crop-a-dile, punch a hole in the front and back panels, approximately 3/4" from the top edge.

Cut ribbon long enough to wrap around the popcorn bag plus an extra 4-5 inches.  Center the ribbon around the popcorn bag.

Push the popcorn bag AND the ribbon into the treat container.  Carefully pull one ribbon end through the hole in front panel and one ribbon end through the hole in the back panel.  Once the popcorn package is seated nicely in it's new package, tie a bow at the top.  As you carefully pull on the bow, the popcorn bag will become visible.  To hide the popcorn bag, just gently push it back in place.

Thanks for stopping by today.
