more Scor-It ruler fun & a couple of shout-outs

I'm still having fun making decorative scores with my Scor-It and the new Scor-It ruler that goes with it.

Here are a few more cards that I've made....

Scoring diagonals and diamond shapes is easy when you have a ruler at the top and at the bottom of what you're scoring. The sentiment and images are all by Hero Arts and stamped using Memento dye inks.

Here I was just trying my hand at some decorative scoring to frame an image. I also used some of the newer colors of Ranger alcohol inks for the polished stone background. The stamped images and sentiment are by Hero Arts.

Here's the full view of a Tri-Shutter card design that I had to try. The sentiment here is by Penny Black.

This is just a view to give a better look at the scoring that I did on this card using the Scor-It and its ruler.

Last but not least, I'd like to give shout outs to IndigoInklings blog reader, Vivian, and to the President of HAMMONDSgroup Inc, maker of the Scor-It, Tim Hammonds. Apparently after reading my post about the new Scor-It ruler and my aside about missing one of the little rubber feet on my Scor-It, Vivian dropped a note in Tim Hammonds' inbox. Tim, in turn, surprised me by dropping a note in my inbox, offering to send me a replacement foot for my Scor-It. Wow! That was so cool! The crafting community really is the best. :-) Thank you so much, Vivian. And many thanks also to Tim. I've mentioned here and elsewhere the outstanding customer service that I've received from the Scor-It folks, and this is another fine example of how they go above and beyond when it comes to standing by their product and satisfying their customers. And that's no small feat! ;-) Okay, it may be one small foot in my case, but it's much appreciated. :-)


  1. i am in love with what you are doing with the scor-it! they are so wonderful! i only have the mini scor-it and am trying to get some of the same results. but it sure would be easier with the second ruler! any way i could get the specs on the beautiful "tri-shutter" card? i keep looking at it thinking i could figure it out but i can smell my brain frying so think i will stop!
    tfs your wonderful designs with us!

  2. Hi Sandy, here's what I did for my version of the "tri-shutter" card: I started with a 5 1/2" by 12" piece of card stock. I scored from top to bottom at 2", 4", 8", 10", and then I made my two cuts from the 2" to the 10" score lines 1" down from the top and 1" up from the bottom. After that it was just a matter of alternating the folds. That gave me a card that was almost A2 size--it was 5 1/2" by 4". I think there's also a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. And you're right--the ruler at the bottom helps a lot when making decorative scores!

    Thanks for coming by! :-)
