Ways To Use Scoring

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I'm the hostess for today's Ways To Use It challenge on Splitcoaststampers. One of my favorite tools is my Scor-Pal.  I'm sure that is no surprise to anyone.  So I made a sweet little center step card for my challenge.  

I cheated a bit, if you will, by using washi tape and stickers on the side and bottom panels.  I had to fuss around quite a bit with the colors I used in the rose to try and match it to the washi tape.  I love that mint color and don't have it readily available in my stash in ink form.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scor-Pal July "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

That's right!  We are in the middle of July and ready for the mid-month tutorial.  This month's Scor-Pal featured challenge is a "more than one score with a die cut" theme.    I'm hostessing and have made a fun slider box with die cuts on top and bottom.

Here's a picture of the slider box opened up just a bit so that you can see the box base.  The box measures 4" long by 2 3/4" wide by 1" deep.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6 3/4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • One 4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Top Note die cut
  • Additional dies for embellishing
  • Additional card stock for embellishing
  • Rhinestones for embellishing
  • Stamps
  • Ink
Place the 6 3/4" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 6 3/4" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 2", 4 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Turn card stock 90 degrees so that the 8" side is against the fence. Score at 1", 2", 6" and 7".
Trim away the three outer squares in each corner, as shown.
With paper snips, cut tabs on the 8" side of the card stock.  The picture below shows the tabs.
Burnish all of the score lines.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the outside of the box base.  Also, adhere Scor-Tape to the tabs as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and fold down the 6 3/4" sides.
Remove the adhesive backing and fold in the tabs on both sides
Remove the adhesive backing on the tabs and fold down the last two sides. Here is your box base.
Place the 4" x 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 3 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 1/2".  
Burnish all of the scores.
Line the 1/2" tab on the back with Scor-Tape.
Wrap the 4" x 8" scored card stock around the box base.  This now becomes the cover that the base slides into.  
Use your die cuts to embellish your newly constructed slider box.
*Original tutorial modified to fit my own die cuts.

Using Stars

This week's Ways To Use It challenge is hostessed by Cathy and the theme is Stars. It should be a pretty amazing gallery!  I don't know why I didn't think of it, but I used a star shape for last week's Ways To Use It challenge as well.  

For today's card, I wanted to be simple. I knew that wanted to make a baby card with this sweet Verve image. I also wanted to go with pink and gold. However, I couldn't find a glittery gold substance with which to fill my star shapes, so I opted for yellow.  I like how it turned out. Stickles are hard to contain in small areas though. I tried to scrape it into the lines with my craft knife, but a little escaped.

Thanks for stopping by!
