Scor-Pal and Paper Smooches Week with Diane Zechman

Hi everyone, This week the designers from Scor-pal and  Paper Smooches  have an awesome blog hop for you.  Be sure to stop by everyone's blog to see what they've been up to.  Scor-Pal will be giving away 3 prizes packages - each one includes a Paper Smooches stamp that we've shown this week as well as Scor-tape. Leave comments on our posts this week for your chance to win!

Woohoo! The Scor-Pal DT has teamed up with the gals at Paper Smooches this week! Fun fun fun! I have 2 cards to share today using a Scor-Pal and the new PS set called Slang Gang. For my first one I made Diana's Accordian Fold Card. Along with the Slang Gang sentiments, I also used the super cute Woofers and Tweeters and Friendly Flowers.


Start with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of cardstock. I changed the directions slightly and kept the paper aligned with the left side as I normally place it. With a Scor-Pal, score the long side @ 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2, and 8. Then mountain/valley fold (accordion fold) starting with a mountain.

Your dsp layers are 1 1/4 x 4, 2 1/4 x 4, and 2 3/4 x 4. Then decorate as desired. After stamping and coloring my images, I fussy cut them and attached so they hung over the edges a bit. (The Woofers dies are on my must-have list!!)
 
 My second card is a CAS one. I used several of the Slang Gang sentiments together as the focal point of the card.


 After masking off the left side with post-it notes, I sponged a rainbow of colors on the right. Then I over-stamped the words with the same colors (minus the yellow). "really?" was stamped with black and then I scored both diagonal and vertical lines to give it some definition. (The vertical scores are hard to see). Check out the Scor-Pal blog for lots more inspiration!
