Scor-Board Fun

scor-board funWelcome to another Make It Monday blog hop. This monday I am playing with my scor-board. I love my Cricut and my dies but their is something so satisfying about getting the old scor-board out and having some fun! Plus if you are a scrapper on a budget then the Scor-Board is a perfect way to get crafty without having to spend a ton of money.

I bet you are probably wondering how many things you can get done with a scor-board? Let me tell you there is a ton and I used my board a lot. I will be sharing a series of posts on things that you can do with your scor-board so that you all can have fun with me.

The first thing I want to share with you is the ability to create a design either for a card or for a project life card. I made this great project life card for my December Daily album using my socr-board and a stamp set from Close To My Heart, which I am in love with. The stamp set is Christmas Village (D1554)  and is perfect for getting your color on.

 

Here is the card that I made by scoring three lines on all 4 sides of my card and then stamping the sweet shoppe, church and florist buildings on my card. I haven’t decided if I am going to use my Shin-Hin markers and Copics yet to color in the houses but if I decide to color them they are stamped with  Memento black ink so that they are ready to go.

The next thing you can do with your scor-board is make a box. Seriously it doesn’t get any easier then this. For the box that I made I grabbed some 8×8 paper that I had and scored it in the places that the Martha Stewart scor-board told me to scor it in. Then you cut slits up the sides and tape it all together. You can put a box together in five minutes with a Scor-board.

The third thing I created with my scor-board was a side step card. I have been seeing these all over the place and dying to make one but I needed to find the instructions so off to Pinterest I went. You can follow me on Pinterest here and you can see the pin here. I pin some cool stuff, like things that you can do with a scor-board cool stuff.  For this card I used the stamp set that comes with the Snowhaven card workshop on the go. This workshop on the go is so awesome because I am almost done with all my Christmas cards just by using this kit and my cards only cost me $1.66 per card to make and the stamp set works with my Art Philosophy cartridge!

Then I made another pocket scrapbooking card for my December Daily by using the Pear & Partridge Picture My Life kit. I have shared before that this kit is the main basis for my album this year and is just gorgeous. All I did for this card was adhere my 3×4 card to a 4×6 piece of cardstock and scor around the card to create emphasis on my card. I think I will distress the edges of this card but I haven’t decided what color yet.

The last thing I am going to share with you is making a quilted background. You could use this technique for a card as I did or for a pocket scrapbooking card. I made a cute little 4×4 card and used the October stamp of the month for the sentiment. I think the card is just darling.

There you go 5 great ways to use your scor-board for card making, pocket scrapbooking, or gift giving. I have tons of other ways to share how to use your scor-board. Sign up for the email list so you don’t miss out on this scor-board fun series.

Another World Card Making Day!

WCMD2014

I am still in shock that October is here already! With that being said it is also world cardmaking day again.

In honor of world cardmaking day I stole a few minutes of time to whip up three cards. I used some of my favorite techniques to make these cards and I am very pleased with how they turned out.

The favorite techniques that I used were stamping (oh how I love stamping), embossing (don’t we all just have tons of embossing folders lying around), and color shine (is color shine a technique, maybe it’s called misting).

Anyways I made a cute little Christmas card. This card is only 4×4 and I love how cute and small it is. This just might be the card that I send out for Christmas. I embossed the silver little strip of paper and stamped the ornament with the October stamp of the month and cut it with the Cricut art philosophy cartridge.

A thanksgiving card. This card is an A2 sized card and I dont usually make cards in landscape format but it was the only way the stamp would fit. Then I stamped the leaves on the inside and embossed a strip of orange paper with the pumpkin embossing folder and adhered it to the inside.

And last but not least a Love card in honor of WCMD and operation write home. This card is also A2 sized and I embossed the silver piece of paper with my heart embossing folder. Next I used one of my project life watercolor cards from the Heidi Swapp line. I stamped the inside of the card with Love from the September stamp of the month, which I think is by far one of my favorite stamp sets.
