Score Board Stamp Off
Welcome to another B S & J Friday Stamp Off! This week, our challenge was to use a scoring tool or the scoring blade on our paper trimmer to create a card. Here’s mine.
I scored two lines diagonally 1/8″ apart every 1-1/2″. Simply insert your card stock into the trimmer on a diagonal with the corners along the score line and score.
Move the card stock 1/8″, then score again. Move it 1-1/2″, then score, move 1/8″ and score. Repeat until you reach the edge. Then go back to the starting point and repeat the process in the other direction.
I kind of cheated. I did use my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, but I also used the retired diagonal insert. This made the scoring process go a lot faster.
To get the “diamond” look, after you score the entire card stock piece, turn the card stock 90 degrees and repeat.
Here’s a close up of the scores.
I used an idea from Susan and stamped the little dots from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set over the scored 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock panel using a Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad. (Just a note: It hasn’t been announced yet whether or not the Delicata Metallic Inks will carry over to the new catalog, and they’ve been very popular. If you love them, order them now!)
To finish off my card, I die-cut the Christmas Rose from the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Roses Dies.

And now–back to today’s card.
I die-cut an extra rose to layer under the DSP for a little extra stability. I punched a Gold Foil Sheet with the Tailored Tag Punch, then layered the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I added the stamped/die-cut elements to a Whisper White card base.
New Paper Trimmer Is Available Today
When you place your order for the Christmastime Is Here products, be sure to add the new Paper Trimmer! It can easily cut even tiny slivers with clean edges. It has a wonderfully wide base and the “lip” across the top goes all the way to the edge so your paper won’t slip easily.
What have Jackie & Susan Created?
Now, please go to Susan’s and Jackie’s blogs to see what they’ve created for you. I can’t wait to see how they used scoring tools to create a card. Will there be a fun fold card? I can’t wait to see!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
I love your diagonal scoring! Your card is gorgeous!

Thanks, Susan! I’m thinking using a pencil and ruler to lay out the diagonals, then scoring and using the opposite side for the card would be even easier. Maybe?
This is a beautiful card Buffy. That diagonal scoring really sets things off. I also like the way you set up your blog post today. Really defined, broken up areas. I need to work on that

Thanks, Jackie! (I miss the diagonal insert.) And there was just so juch to share today, I had to break it up a little (although I guess I could have done a second post…Duh.)
You’re so talented, figuring out the measurements for that diagonal score! (I still have my old diagonal plate!) It worked out beautifully – I love the diamond background with the gold splatters. The rose is so pretty! So much goodness, all in one card 🙂
