VC Rocks Stamping Tools Blog Hop

Welcome to the first VC Rockers Blog Hop of the season. 

We are focusing on stamping tools. 

For my stamping tools I used Simply Scored, paper trimmer, 

and border, and decorative label punch.

I've been seeing these screen cards online so I wanted to make one too!

Start with a piece of cardstock cut 5 1/2 by 11

Score on the long side at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, and 8 1/4. 

Mountain and valley fold so you have a screen. 

I used the scallop border punch to punch across the top of the screen. 

To make the screen stand I used the decorative label punch. I centered

it on the bottom and only inserted the punch about 1/4 in. 

The black panels are cut 2 1/2 x 4 3/8
The white panels are cut 2 1/4 x 4 1/8

Color Palette: Strawberry Slush (this was used for the screen), Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe,  Baked Brown Sugar, and Coastal Cabana. 
Stamp sets Gorgeous Grunge and a new set Work of Art. 
I added some rhinestones, and pieces of paper doily. I also cut out some of the hearts and 
popped them on the panels. 

Hope you are enjoying the Hop!
