Market Street Stamps Week!!






We are excited to be bringing  you a special week here on the Scor-pal blog featuring projects created not only with Scor-pal products but, also, some great stamps from our friends at Market Street Stamps.  We hope you will take time to stop by each day this week to see what the designers are up to. While you're here be sure to leave a comment each day for your chance to win a Scor-buddy and some Market Street Stamps that will be given away to one randomly selected visitor. Of course, you'll also want to hop over and pay a visit to the Market Street Stamps blog because they are featuring Scor-pal and Market Street projects as well!! 

Deadline to enter for the random drawing is midnight Sunday April 22.

Today's featured projects come from Scor-pal designers Diane Zechman and Virginia Nebel.

First up we have two ideas from Diane.

I created 2 projects for our hop with Market Street stamps today. First I made a Gate Fold card using the Believing Butterfly stamp set and my Scor-Pal.


Stamps: Market Street Believing Butterfly; paper- white cardstock; ink- SU! Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Memento Rich Cocoa; accessories- Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug Textile folder, Cinnamon Stickles.


This butterfly is so pretty and I decided to stamp it in different colors and attach them to a white-on-white card to really make them pop! The light purple and coral butterflies are only attached to the panel on the right.

I stamped the sentiment in the same colors and cut out select words to glue on top of the sentiment stamped in brown ink.



For my second project, I used the Comfort Food stamp set to create a 6x6 recipe page.


Stamps- Market Street Comfort Food; paper- white, SU! Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Everyday Enchantment paper; ink- SU! Pool Party, Memento Tuxedo Black; accessories- Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Copics, 2 ½” and 2 3/8” circle punches, Aleene’s True Snow, Cinnamon Stickles, Sizzix Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.


The patterned paper strip across the bottom was pleated using the Scor-Pal. For the pleated strip, I scored a 12” piece of paper at 3/4", 1”, 1 3/4", 2”, 2 3/4", 3”, etc. Then I accordion folded it and attached it with Scor-Tape.

The scalloped layer underneath the pie image was embossed by scoring in opposite directions in a criss-cross pattern.

 

The pie was colored with markers and I applied Aleene’s True Snow to the whipped topping to create additional dimension. The words “Favorite” and “Recipe” were placed on an acrylic block in a curve so they would match the round layers when stamped.

Here’s the recipe directions if you’d like to try it…


I hope you enjoyed my projects today!

Next, another great project using the same stamps from Virginia:

Hi. It’s Virginia here and I am so happy to be playing along this week’s Scor-pal cross promotion with Market Street Stamps. When I saw the Market Street’s Comfort Food (#MSS-31) stamp set  I immediately thought about baked treats and creating a triple-pocket card. This pocket card could accompany home-baked goodies and sharing the recipe at the same time!



Supplies: American Crafts pattern paper, Lifestyles diecuts, Marvy Uchida punch, Copic markers, Twinery twine


Start with an 8 ½ x 11 double sided pattern paper. I would suggest using paper with a random pattern to avoid ‘upside down’ pocket folds.

 Score the paper in half vertically and horizontally. With the 8 ½ edge along the top fence of the Scor-pal, lightly score at the 1 ¾ inches (stop at around the 1 ¾ inch mark which you can use the vertical ruler on the Scor-pal. Repeat a second light score-line at the 5 ½ mark (stop at around the 5 ½ mark on the vertical ruler). These light score lines are used as registration guides for your folding so you do not need to score too heavily.



To make the pocket folds. Mountain fold the top left corner to the 1 ¾ registration line, valley fold the top right corner to the 5 ½ registration line, valley fold the bottom left corner to the 4 ¼ center score line. Cut along the 5 ½ score line from the edge and stop at the center (see the cut line in photo)



Folding sequence: Fold the top portion left, bring up the bottom portion and then fold the last remaining flap around to the back. Secure at the left edge with Scor-tape.





Due to the thickness of your paper, you may need to trim along the top to even out the edge.




Have fun embellishing!

Seriously cool multifold card! Loved Diane's projects too, really lovely!

Great cards! I love how the sentiment was stamped multiple times with different colors and then cut apart on the first card, but I LOVE the multi-pocket card. So cool, and that would be great for gift cards - you could include a message and a gift card. Great work ladies!
