A Light unto My Path

No, this is not the same layout, but it is close! I borrowed my friends Scor-Pal and Scor-It yesterday to see which one I like best. While visiting the Scor-Pal's website I saw a grid card done by Judy Jackson. It inspired me to try this with my new Stampin' Up! set, A Light unto My Path. I first scored around the outside of a So Safron card 1/2" from the edge. I also scored a 3 x 4" piece of Confetti White card stock in 1/2" intervals. Seeing how this was a sample I did not think I would be finishing, I used my Elegant Eggplant Ink to stamp the lighthouse. (I did cut it down a bit to fit the stamped image) I colored it using my Pure Color Pencils, roughed the edges, added some layered card stock, Grosgrain Ribbon and the saying at the bottom. I love how it turned out.
What do you think? Also, what scoring tool do you like best? Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

Nursery Necessities, Baby Card

Another card using the same layout, this time with the Nursery Necessities Stamp Set. I'll give my card stock measurements on this one. Almost Amethyst, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" folded in half to make a card. Prints Designer Series Paper, 3" x 4 1/4", Rose Red, 2 1/2" x 3 1/4", Pumpkin Pie, 2 3/8" x 3 1/8" & 4 1/4" x 3/8", Whisper White, 2 1/4" x 3". Also a scrap of white for the saying punched out with the Word Window punch. Once again I used my Stampin' Write Markers along with the Almost Amethyst ink pad and then added two Vintage Brads. Oh yes, on this one I used my Ticket Corner punch on the layered pieces. Everything is by Stampin' Up! Thanks for looking!

Big Bold Birthday card

Ok, so here is yet another card using the same layout as the previous two post, only this one I used the Big Bold Birthday set. I started out with a Pumpkin Pie card and added Designer Series Paper. I hope to add one more card tomorrow using the same layout and will try and post the measurements as well. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Close as a Memory, Sympathy Card

Here is another very quick and easy card that is very elegant. If you look at the card I posted on Friday, you'll see that they are basically the same, only they use different stamp sets and card stock. I used Close as a Memory stamp set and the Jumbo Watercolor Vine Wheel and Handle. Using a River Rock textured card, I added Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Confetti Cream Card stock for layering and stamping. Other accessories were River Rock Double-Stitched Ribbon, Stampin' Write Markers, Earth Elements Brads, Mellow Moss cartridge and Not Quite Navy ink pad. Have a great day and take time to make and then send a card.
