Fabulous Florets Against a Diagonally Scored Background

This is the first morning I don't have to run off somewhere for someone in the family.  I'm looking forward to spending the day in my stamp room. Tonight begins the Passion Play at FBC Ellijay.  If you are local and would like to attend there are three performances scheduled this weekend.  Click here for details and remember you do not have to have tickets in hand.  If you do attend please make sure you say hello...I'm playing keyboard on the right side.

Last night was my first I Love Cards Buffet.  We missed those of you that were unable to attend.  There were a variety of cards to choose from and I am hoping to have several more for next month.  I didn't have enough time to have dinner before everyone got here so we decided to add pizza and a salad from Johnny's to the event...yum.  Make sure if you are local you add this fun class to your schedule next month.

This is one of the cards on the buffet that will still be available for next month.  The stamp set is one of my favorites from the big catalog called Fabulous Florets.  I'm not sure why but Rose Red is not a color I use and now I'm thinking why not.  It's gorgeous especially paired with the crumb cake and old olive.  I love ribbon because it adds so much to a card but sometimes I like to show you that you can make a quick and beautiful card without it.  I wish you could see this card IRL with the textured background and's stunning.

Pin It      

The textured background is so easy to create now that Stampin' Up! has come out with the diagonal score pad.  It sits on top of the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and you can create textured background, envelopes, and boxes in minutes.  Some people are asking if it sits on top of the Martha Stewart scoring tool and the answer is yes.  I have one here that I don't use anymore and we gave it a try at last club.  Everyone who tried it decided it's not as secure because it slips some but it is workable.  At least until you order your Stampin' Up! one to replace it. :)  

The scoring adds so much and I love the effect you get when you stamp over it.  Click here to see another card that shows this effect even more so. son's cute new puppy.

Do you have the diagonal scoring plate yet and if so what is your favorite thing about it?  I would love to feature a few of your projects made with this tool.  Feel free to email me a link to your project or if you don't have a blog a picture and your name.
