Simply Scored 3 x 3 Card Box

Just a quick post as I am having an all day Craft Class today, so will have lots of things to show you soon, that's what I've been so busy doing! I said I would show you the little box we made to keep the little 3 x 3 cards and envelopes in.  It is so easy to make boxes with the simply scored, we made a rosette to go on the top again using the simply scored and Yes it is supposed to be that shape as it's an oval!

Simply Scored 3 x 3 Cards and Box Set

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been so busy and didn't realise it had been so long. It was my Simply Scored Class last night and we had a lovely time although I was a bit ambitous about what we could achieve in 2 1/2 hours! We made a set of four 3x3 cards and matching envelopes using the gorgeous twitterpated DSP, everyone got a selection of the papers so they could choose what design they would like.

The card design is very simple because I wanted to show off the DSP. The matching envelopes are a doddle to make using the diagonal plate on the Simply Scored.

These little cards are so quick and easy to do but they are addictive I am sure I will be making a lot, especially Christmas ones, but they are too small to post. I will show you the matching box tomorrow.
DSP: Twitterated
Card Stock: Island Indigo and Riding Hood Red
Ink Pads: Island Indigo and Riding Hood Red
Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval
Stamp Sets: Oval All
Accessories: Simply Scored, Diagonal Plate

Simply scored Treasure Chest & Unsupervised Camera!

I was looking through my photo's to see what I could post as the things I have been doing lately are for class and I don't want to post them and spoil the surprise.  This is a treasure chest I made using the two tag die as the sides of the treasure chest.  I made the lid by scoring every 1/4" I think so it would curve.  The stamp is from nature walk.  I will do a quick tutorial on this as they are great for putting sweets in. I used the edgelit die to make the curve of the lid.

I thought I would also show you what happens when a bored Jessica gets hold of your camera, there are a lot of these photos but I will show you a couple!

Make A Monster the Stampin' Up! Way

This is the last card from the boys and men class. This ones for a boy or someone young at heart!
I used the Make A Monster stamp set which is ideal for boys cards but great for some fun get well and wedding/anniversary ones as well!

I can't believe I forgot to photograph the inside of the card, it has a little monster in a space ship, you can see him through the window, the monster is holding a flad I made using the petite pennant builder punch and it says Hi Earthling. The planets are made from 2 circles, just punch holes in the top circle using a crop-a-dile. The space ship is also punches. I stamped the monster on whisper white and DSP and cut the body out from the DSP.
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Temping Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
DSP: Lucky Limeade from in-colour stack
Ink: Basic Black and white gel pen
Punches: 1 3/4", 1 3/8" circles, extra large oval & petite pennant punch
Accessories: basic rhinestones and googly eye (not Stampin' Up)
Stamp Set: Make A Monster

Lovely As A Tree - Card for Men

Here is another card we made at the Mens Class. This time we used Lovely As A Tree stamp Set - this has to be a classic stamp set for many occassions, it is great for mens cards, Christmas, Harvest and Sympathy Cards to name but a few.
We didn't use any DSP on this card, instead we made our own background using stamps for the set. I used blender Pens to colour in. I used a little bit of old olive satin ribbon, just knot it and wrap around the corner.

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, very vanilla, old olive and soft suede
Ink: crumb cake, early espresso, soft suede and old olive
Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes & Lovely As A Tree
Punches: word window and modern label
Accessories: Old Olive Satin Ribbon

Sail Away Diorama Card

At class yesterday we made some cards for men and boys, I don't know about you but I find these a lot harder to do than those for ladies. The first card I will show you is another diorama card, told you I love making these, they are so easy to do but look really difficult!

As you can see we made this as a fathers day card but you could use any sentiment.
Card Stock: Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
DSP: Well Worn
Ink: Early espresso
Punches: Word Window and Modern Label
Stamp Sets: Sail Away and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Other: Big Shot and Framelits

Faux Tile Effect with Simply Scored

Hi, just thought I'd share a card I made a few weeks ago using the simply scored tool to make a tile effect. Just score a grid on your whisper white or very vanilla card stock, I think I scored every one inch, you could also use the diagonal plate for a different look.  Then stamp your image on the side where the lines are indented, it needs to be quite a big stamp I used the medallion background stamp. I then used a sponge dauber and some scrap paper to ink the edgesd of the 'tiles' but this is optional.
Here is my card.
The sentiment and little flower is from the tea shoppe stamp set. I used quite a few rhinestones for a bit of bling, I think this makes a quick stylish card.  Sorry the photo isn't brilliant it,s a quick one I made from when I did an inspiration station on the simply scored.
Card stock: baja breeze, island indigo and whisper white
Ink: baja breeze and island indigo
Punches: ribbon border and curly label
Stamp sets: medallion and tea shoppe
Other: basic rhinestones

Diorama Card and frame using Labels Framelits

This is a quick post on this Jubillee Weekend to show you a little card I made for someone moving home.  I love making these diorama cards and they are quick and easy to do once you know how. Here is a great video by the lovely Sally Jo that shows you how to make them.

The colour scheme is bashful blue, pretty in pink and so saffron.  I used the bird punch again and the boho blossoms punch for the flowers. I used the simply scored tool to make the lines.
The little frame is easy to make using the new label framelits from Stampin Up.
Just line one framelit inside the other and run through your big shot on tab 2, you can use a post-it-note to stop it moving around.

I love these framelits and I think you will be seeing a lot of them!

Manhattan Rose and Mini Milk Carton Die Bird House

Well I hope you are all looking forward to  a lovely Jubillee Weekend.   Here are the other projects we made at the last class.  The first one is a card we made using the Manhattan Rose embossing folder, it is a very simple card but I think it would be good for a lot of occassions. Once you have embossed your flower on whisper white turn it over and use a brayer to ink over it then cut out.  We did this with pink pirouette ink although I have used two colours in the past and that looks really nice.

Then we made a little birdhouse using the mini milk carton die and bird punch. I used the nursery nest DSPon the roof.
