Every Thursday brings a new challenge from the Stampin' B's Design Team, and today is no different! Our new challenge this week is to use scoring on your project. Scoring is such an easy way to add texture and dimension to your card! There are lots of super tools out there for scoring--the Scor-Pal, Crafters Companion, Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Scor-It-All, and more--but you can score like a pro even if you don't have fancy (or costly!) tools like these. I do all of my scoring with a lowly embossing stylus (or burnisher) and the groove of my paper trimmer. Here's my card creation for this week's challenge:
I've also made this for the DeNami Color Challenge #8, which is to create a project featuring Golden Tangerine, Charcoal, Chocolate Brown, Lime and White/ Cream.
I've used the DeNami Design Rosebud Trio and the "cheers" sentiment from the Everyday Greetings set. I've also used DeNami Chocolate Brown and Charcoal cardstocks.
I'm also entering this card in the Textured to Perfection Challenge over in the Moxie Fab World, to incorporate texture in an innovative way. This is my second card for the challenge, and this time around I tried adding texture (two textured cardstocks, scoring, sheer ribbon, and hand-trimmed grass) in a clean way that doesn't overwhelm the design.
Thanks so much for dropping by today for a little slice of bliss with me. If you'd like to try your hand at this week's Stampin' B's Challenge, post your project on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)
See you soon!
