February "More Than One Score" Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!  It's February 1st and time with another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.  Our theme for this month is "Pink or Blue".  I opted for some blue this time. Today, I have made a mini favor box*.  It's just right for baby shower favors and can fit a little treat inside.  Let's get started!
For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Corner Rounder
  • Mini clothespins
  • Additional card stock for embellishments
  • Additional designer paper for embellishments
  • Square punches
  • Star punches
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Dimensional adhesive
Place the 4 1/2" by 7 1/2" piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal with the long side against the top fence.  Score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6 ".
With the 4 1/2" side of the card stock against the top fence, score at 1 1/2" and 3".
Burnish all the folds.
Trim out the corners as shown.
At the opposite end, trim tabs to first 1 1/2" score.
Turn card stock once to the left and cut to the 1 1/2" score line on the first and second folds. Make cuts on both top and bottom.
Round corners on center tabs at both ends.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the first and third tabs on both top and bottom.
Pull the two center tabs up, remove adhesive backing and adhere flaps one at a time to center tabs.
Fold down top and bottom square tabs.
Pinch together the rounded tabs and secure.
Embellish as desired.
This concludes my tutorial for the February 2016 More Than One Score Challenge.

Sadly, it's the last day of the hop and I think this sentiment could be appropriate!  I had fun coloring up my seahorse and then adding the rhinestones to imitate air bubbles.  I borrowed a great sketch from Mojo Monday to kick off my card.  The bubble embossing folder just lent a bit more interest to my card.  I think it makes my underwater scene!  If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, you will want to follow the links below.

Hello again!  What a fun week this is turning out to be.  I saw some really cool artwork on Pinterest and just had to try and replicate the look on a card!  I love the image stamped on a book page and then outlined with white.  I wasn't sure what medium to use so I experimented a little bit.  I finally went with white acrylic paint and am very pleased with my outcome.  I also gave the body of the boat and the waves a touch of color.

Today's card has a fun little technique that I don't think to use very often.  I  broke out the masking tape used it to apply the colors of my sand and sea.  I stamped my palm tree a couple of times and trimmed it out. Then I popped it up over the embossed card stock.  A fun little saying finishes off this simple card.  If you didn't start this hop at the very beginning, you will want to start with Bonnie.  Just follow the link below.  If you have been following along, head onto Vickie's blog.

"Winter Fun" More Than One Score challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are almost all the way through the December challenge.  I thought I would post now and give you are reminder about this month's More Than One Score challenge via Scor-Pal!  It's a fun one and maybe you have a little extra time at the end of the year.  The theme is Winter Fun or Winter Holidays and our hostess is Lois Bak!

For my winter fun project, I made a cardfolio.  It's a great way to package cards to give as gifts.  This one went to my daughter's teacher (who actually forwarded me the original pin I used to create this project).
Inside, you can tuck a dozen cards easily with the envelopes.  If they are a bit layered up, you may have to reduce the number you place inside.  
I hope you get the chance to play along with us this month!

Thanks for stopping by!

Details - Stamps: Big Trees (MFP), Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SU), Ornamental Christmas (Verve), Warm Winter Wishes (Flourishes); Paper: Thoroughly Modern, Crumb Cake, Smooth White; Ink: So Saffron, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Night of Navy, Versamark; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor-tape, IO snowflake dies, recollections rhinestones, silver cording, glue dots, stampin' sponges, stampin' dimensionals, Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon, heat tool, clear embossing powder, sponge daubers.

Today's card is a wedding card.  The clean and simple style really works for me and this fabulous font from the Lily of the Valley set lends a touch of elegance to the card.  After this card, I think I have covered most of the personal holidays with my engagement, retirement, birthday and wedding cards.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day, I will be out in the crowds enjoying a little holiday shopping.  It may sound crazy, but its how I begin to get in the Christmas mood.

This concludes our celebrations hop. Thanks for following along all week.  I hope you have been inspired to begin work on your own celebration projects.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by December 11 and check back on December 12, 2015 to see if you are a winner.
