Now for today's projects from Scor-pal Designer Steph Ackerman.

Doodlebug's Essential Colorwheel collection is an amazing assortment of colors and patterns. It's the perfect paper for creating all types of projects. Today I'm focusing on cards - this collection has ample supplies to make some awesome cards.


My first card is a tri-fold card.  I cut my cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", then, using my Scor-Pal, I scored the cardstock at 2 3/4" and 8 3/4" to create the 2 folds.  Using the reverse side of the Fancy Florals paper, I cut it to fit the 2 outer edges of the card.  I then embossed these pieces with a Cuttlebug embossing folder before attaching them to the card.  I then ran lavender twine around both pieces.


The sentiment was stamped in black ink on white cardstock, then adhered to the Fancy Florals paper before being adhered to the die cut label.  This label was then adhered to the left side of the card only to allow the card to open.


I cut the Fancy Florals paper to fit the 3 interior sections of the card, then using Spelbinders Beaded Circles, I created the center pieces of the interior card. The sentiment was stamped in black ink.




My next card is an easel card which was cut 5 1/2" x 11".  Using my Scor-Pal,  I scored the cardstock at 5 1/2" to create the card fold, then scored again at 8 1/4" to create the "tent" feature that would create the easel effect.  Evening Garden was cut to fit the card front and the reverse side was used across the center of the card.  Using my Scor-pal, I created 2 score lines on this piece before adhering it to the card.  I wrapped some twine around the card and die cut the frame for my sentiment.


I stamped another sentiment on the die cut frame which was attached to the bottom portion of the card with foam adhesives to allow the card to stand.  I added some butterfly stickers to the card with foam adhesives so they would stand out.


I used a pre-made card for this project, cutting black cardstock to fit the front.  I cut the Social Butterfly paper 4" x 5" and scored a 1/2" line around this block using my Scor-Pal.


I added a Flower Braddie to "happy" and then added the die cuts to the card front with foam adhesives.





This darling little purse doubles as a gift card holder and was so much fun to make.  Cutting the Evening Garden paper 6" x 6", I scored at the 3" mark and folded the paper in half.  I then diagonally cut the corners to create the shape.


Using Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities, I cut the flap and adhered it to the back of the purse with Scor-tape.  I punched two holes and threaded ribbon through.
I then created a pocket for the gift card and stamped a sentiment on top.


I hope you enjoyed these projects and thanks for stopping by today.

I like how the top card just hints at what's inside, drawing me in...

I've learned to try new things. Think of my different supplies in different ways. I also learned that simple lines can take a project for pretty to interesting and gorgeous.

I'm tempted to share a non-crafting related tidbit I learned this week, but I'm thinking you'd rather that I shared a Scoring-related one! I learned that if you want to make a gate-fold card, there are special markings on the Scor-Pal at the spot you should score to do that! That's pretty much wonderful!!! Thanks for the chance!!!

christi said...

What a fun week. I've learned that I need to explore and try more techniques I'm not familiar with such as the darling Easel Card on today's blog and the lattice work from an earlier blog. It's time to expand my horizons. Thanks for your help!

Andrea Garland said...

Beautiful cards like all the cards that have been in these 5 days (full of good projects). My favorite is the third card: butterflies are beautiful.

Deborah said...

I love all your projects the papers are just fab.

Deborah said...

This week I learned that I need to use my Scor-Pal for many more projects and visit the blog for new ideas. Not just use it to draw lines to score my cs in half which is like only using your microwave oven to make popcorn or heat water. Thanks!

Cathy said...

All these projects are so pretty and fun and colorful. Love what the scorpal can do, hope to get one some day!!

I learned that there is so much you can do with the score pal and it isn't just for folding

Kristie Maynard said...

What wonderful projects! You've been hard at work and have done a great job on these!

Kristie Maynard said...

One thing I learned is from this post. I hadn't really thought of putting patterned paper on the inside of a card, but it really works on that tri-fold card. Lovely!

Tracey said...

Wow on today's projects!! Love the purse card, my grand-daughter will freak when I make it for her. Thank you for sharing it.

Tracey said...

This week I have learned there is so much you can use a Score-pal for; the possibilities are endless!! I hope I win one so I can make all of these awesome projects instead of trying to do them with a scoring blade on my paper cutter. The first things I would try is box pleats and the purse card.
