MFT/Scor-Pal Blog Hop

I'm super excited to share today's post with you!  MFT and Scor-Pal have teamed up together to do a joint blog hop!  Both the MFT and Scor-Pal designers have cooked up some fabulous projects for you showing just how well they work together!

You can find links to all the designers sharing projects today both on the MFT Blog and on the Scor-Pal Blog.  I hope you'll hop around and take in the eye candy!

I had spied a cute little iphone printable valentine quite a while ago on a blog I frequent (LivingLocurto) and decided it was the perfect inspiration to pull out my I Need Some Face Time à la mode!


The printable is designed to be cut and scored and wrapped around a box of conversation hearts (clever, no?).  But I decided to cut the front of the wrapper off and use it as the image panel for my box.  I used my Scor-Pal (and some instructions from SCS) to create a slider box.  I tried to keep the colours muted - as I was inspired by the iphone itself.  I love how the Scor-Pal makes such clean, crisp score lines and the measurements make creating 3D items a breeze!  I also used Scor-Tape to adhere my box together.  What I love most about this tape is that you can tear it.  The less time I spend searching for my scissors on my desk, the better!


Here's the box slid partly open.  I filled it with some yummy dark chocolate pomegranate candies.


Here's a close up of my card.  I decided to keep it fairly simple and try a background technique that's been on my "to do" list for a while now.  I cut out a whole bunch of numbers using the By The Numbers Die-namics and glued them to cardstock of the same colour.  


I love the subtle yet interesting texture it gives the card!


I also gave her iphone a good coat of Glossy Accents, to make the whole thing shiny and more realistic.  


I finished the inside off with a sentiment I created using the By The Letters Die-Namics and the Hearts A Plenty Die-namics.  I also stamped a sentiment from the I Need Face Time à la mode set.  


Thanks so much for stopping by today - I'm so glad that you did!  I hope you'll pop over to Scor-Pal to check out their fabulous products if you haven't already!
