Bo Bunny, Scor-Pal and a Giveaway!!!

I know how we all LOVE giveaways!!  This week, Bo Bunny has teamed up with Scor-Pal for a blog hop!!
Be sure to drop by the Bo Bunny Blog and the Scor-Pal blog and leave a comment for a chance to WIN!! 

I have to admit that I had never used a scoring tool.  I don't know why I hadn't tried this before!  I LOVED it!!  It is so easy to use and works perfectly every time, even for beginners!!  Such fun!

The post at Bo Bunny today is about stitching.  When I was thinking about how to use my tool and experimenting with it, I thought about how perfect the lines come out and decided to use them for stitching guides.  I loved how I could just pierce along the lines and add my stitching.




Here you can see how I scored along the card for stitching guides.  I also flipped the card over and and did some extra lines to give an embossed look to the card, too.


Look how easy it is to make these squares!!  Just score one inch apart along the card, then flip it and score in the other direction.  All you have to do then is pierce at each intersection and stitch!


Here are what the cards looked like before I added sentiments and embellishments.


Tip when stitching on cards:  Be sure to use tape instead of knots to secure your threads on the back.  This will make it easy for keeping it flat on the inside.  Simply cover the stitching with paper for a finished inside as well as a great outside!

Don't forget to go by the Bo Bunny and Scor-Pal blogs for inspiration and a chance to win!!!
