Scor-Pal Grid Cards

Good day to you! I purchased a Scor-Pal a few weeks ago and now wonder what I did without it. What a wonderful tool! While surfing around looking for project ideas to use my new toy, I came across cards that where scored like a tile or grid. I figured it was worth a try and I highly recommend it! What fun! I'm really happy with the results I came up with. Below is one of the cards I made.

Supplies: Card stock-Gina K Luxury White, DSP-Retired Stampin' Up!, Rose image-Stampendous, Koh-i-noor Pencils, OMS, Glitter Glue, Word Window Punch-SU, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Glitter Brads and of course Scor-Pal!

Today is my bro-in-laws birthday. To help him celebrate, I sent this card. He probably won't get it until tomorrow, I'm sure he doesn't read my blog, so I'm not too worried. :0). (Patti-don't show him....just know that it is on the way....) The sketch is from this card by Tavias Charms on SCS.

The card base is Gina K Luxury white. DP is from DCWV. The image is set on a Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up! ) panel. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with my Koh-i-nor pencils and OMS. I just love the effect when I use these! I restamped the fishing hat and popped it up with a dimensional. I think it really added to the look. The sentiment comes from an Inkadinkado set. I used chalk to shade the background. The SU twill ribbon completes the card.
Bob-I hope you enjoy this card! Have a Happy, Happy Day!

Thanks for stopping by today! God Bless!

Hawiian Tourist Inspiration.....

My oldest son turns 30 in a few weeks, (must be new math that he used to calculate is age because I'm only 29!). Anyway, I thought he needed a little dose of age for this milestone, so I got inspiration for his card from the gaudy shirts that older Hawaiian tourists wear! I haven't been to Hawaii, but base my thoughts on the silly movies that one might view about silly tourists on a beautiful island! I don't usually make a masculine card with these bright colors. I did have fun with it though and am pleased at how it turned out. It is also loosely based on this weeks Our Creative Corner challenge.

Card base-Gina K Luxury White, Colored Cardstock, Pattern Paper-DCWV. Stamps- Penguin Paradise (retired), Smarty Pants-both Stampin' Up! Ink-Tuxedo Black-Memento, Markers-SU, Cuttlebug, Argyle EF, Oval Punch-Marvy Dimensionals, Word Window Punch-SU

Black and White

I was surfing around looking for inspiration the other day and Black and White is what seems to get me going. I needed a Thank You card for a friend and had planned to use one from my stash, but then saw an idea that spurred me on. My daughter and I attended a "Pride and Prejudice Tea" at a friend's house last weekend. There were 14 ladies there and we had tea (REAL tea), scones, torte, quiche, fruit cups and various other delicacies. After eating we watched "Wives and Daughters", a mini series along the same line as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. It was a wonderful day. We had to leave before watching the last movie, because we had a two hour drive home.........all in all, a great girl friend kind of day. Anyway, on to the card.....

CardBase-Whisper White-Stampin' Up! Black layer-from the scrap box. Pattern Paper-DCWV (doesn't it just work here??) Heart Stamp-Inkadinkado, Ink-Tuxedo Black-Memento,Ribbon-Offray Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots EF.
