A Gem of a Challenge #186 - Hearts and/or Flowers

It's time for another challenge at A Gem of A Challenge and this time I got to chose the theme and I went with "Hearts and/or Flowers".
With Valentines Day being just around the corner I thought it was the perfect time to get a little romantic with your card making.
I used the adorable Cozy Ollie and paired him the muted pinks and kraft colors and I think he turned out very cute.

Digital Delights - Donnie and Slippy

Today I'm sharing another card for Digital Delights!
This is very bittersweet as this will be my last card on the Digital Delights Design Team. I am a senior designer and have been designing cards for Wendy for many years (7 I think) but life moves on and crafting cards is becoming less of a priority to me at the moment, I am still very creative but in other areas.
Now I won't say it is goodbye forever but for now it is a well needed break.
That said I created a very cute (if I say so myself) easel card with Donnie and Slippy





Card Recipe:
Image - Donnie and Slippy
Sentiment - Merry Time Sentiment Set
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Snowday by The Paper Studio
Glitter - Tulip
Circle Die - Little B







I colored Slippy twice and popped him up on foam for dimension and added tons of glitter on their hats.
Be sure to keep checking Digital Delights! as Wendy has many more exciting images coming for you.
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to y'all!

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge - Family Means Everything

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and as it is November and with Thanksgiving coming up we have the perfect theme "Family Means Everything"
You make an "Anything But a Card", a card with a fancy fold, anything as long as it has more than a single score and that you let us know where you used your Scor-Pal in the project.


I have a created a very simple "floating Z Fold" card for you today that is as quick as it is effective, this took less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
It is a nice change from a regular fold and can be adapted to different sizes and is fun to decorate with the different panels on it.



Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Patterned Paper - October Afternoon
Accents - Adorn It




For card bases but two pieces of cardstock, one 12" by 5" and one 10" by 4". Score the 12" piece at 3" and 6" and the 10" piece at 5" and 7 1/2". Burnish the score lines as in the photo.



Add patterned paper to the bases as desired



Add Scor-Tape to the back of the top base as shown in the photo



Position the top base on the bottom base so the folds coordinate and lie flat when both folded



Remove cover from Scor-Tape and adhere












I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and be sure to drop by to the Scor-Pal Blog to see the creations from the rest of the team
