The Eyes are the Windows to the Soul

How would you like a chance to win some Words or Whatever - WOW chipboard?  The challenge this month is easy - just show us a layout using some of your favorite WOW chippies.  If you live in the United States and would like to play along, I've noticed that Lindy's Stamp gang has a nice selection of our chipboard in stock.

This is a picture of my beautiful sister, Lori - who has the most amazing blue eyes, and yes, her sweet soul is even more lovely than her eyes.

Cut patterned paper 5 3/4" x 5 3/4".  Distress the edges with ink, and then with a distressing tool.  Create a couple of tears along the edges, and glue snippets of the Decorative Butterfly Corner die cuts, behind the tears. Stamp the Botanical Window directly on the center of the card.  Die cut a frame for the window using the Decorative Chateau Gate, cut away the door areas and glue that to the card base.  Stamp the Botanical Window again, this time onto Cryogen White paper.  Color the window frame and flowers using Copics and fussy cut. Stamp 3 lilies that match the sizes of the base image, and cut with the coresponding die.  Color these and add to the image using foam adhesives.  Cut three small leafy vines and arrange with your flower cluster. Add pearls to the centers of the flowers and finish with a bow.

Enjoy the Little Things

When I saw the Marigold Collection, by Kaisercraft, I knew it was time to try creating a paper marigold to go along with these papers.


I also had a chance to play with some of the mixed media techniques my friend Vivian Keh (Contadina K) shares on her YouTube videos.  For this, I started with a base of masking tape, and then used gesso, mists, Viva Decor Inka Gold and Viva Decor Glitter Liners to create an interesting backdrop for my clusters.

Visit Splitcoast Stampers Love Fest and Play Along!

The Design Team for Scor-pal is taking part in the  Splitcoast Stampers Love Fest. Today is day 4 and we are sponsoring a challenge. Visit the Scor-pal Member Company Forum for all the details on this Flips, Flaps and Oodles of Fold challenge and to see what we are up to!

This is a hybrid fancy fold card that combines a gate-fold and easel card into one. The buttons along the flat bottom layer really help to keep the gate from opening as well.

 Be sure to head over to SCS to see what the rest of the design team has come up with, as well as to get your entry in.  If you enjoy using your Scor-pal to create all kinds of fancy fold cards, boxes and home decor projects, then be sure to follow us at the Scor-Pal blog.
