Blog Hop - May











Hi everyone! Here is my entry for May's Blog Hop hosted by Papertrey Ink. Nichole wanted us to try use scoring on our cards. HERE is a list of all the blogs to check out. Of course, I don't own any of the fancy tools like a Scor-Pal. Just my handy dandy Fiskers cutter and a Pampered Chef scraper.


It is a little hard to see the scoring so I added a close up here. I did some "stitched" scoring around my little hoppy frog!! There are also some stright scored lines around the outer edge of the card as well. The frog is stamped, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals.

Supplies: Paper-Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (SU!); Ink-Wild Wasabi, White craft, Black (SU!); Stamps-Pond Life, Polka Dot Basics (Papertrey Ink); Other-Fiskers cutter, Pampered Chef scraper, black pen (Zig), dimensionals (Making Memories).
I know it is simple, but it was fun to make and I was hoping to inspire everyone with the STITCHED scoring :-) Now, off to check out everyone elses' great ideas!!
Thanks for visiting.

What a great card! I didn't stay up late last night and look at all the cards but I love the green against the bright white. The score lines are very creative too. Nice!

I love the stitched scoring, too, Wiggy!!! I think the simplicity of the card is absolutely beautiful! Great job. Sometimes I think I get carried away with how many different layers and items can I stick on a card and lose focus of the image. This frog really leaps of the paper, and the stitching accents him well. :) Kel
