Hi stampers! So one of my goals I set at convention last week was to post more videos. Honestly I quit doing them because my memory card got full and I didn't want to take the time to delete pictures, lol! Lazy! I know! Anyway, I'm back up and running and hope to have at least one video per week for you!
I thought my Artisan swap would be the perfect place to start! I wanted to do a card that was both "wow" and me at the same time....and by me I mean clean and simple. I fretted for weeks over the card but I'm really pleased with how it came out and I hope the other finalists and Shellie (OMG) liked it too!
Stamps: Greetings of the season
Ink: Midnight muse, marina mist reinker
Paper: Whisper white, crumb cake, midnight muse
Accessories: Large pearls, dazzling details, white frost shimmer paint, stampin' spritzers, bigz snow flurry die
I used the new snowflake die in the Holiday catalog to create a stencil and made my own shimmer mist. Hard to see in the photo (and sorry I couldn't get it to photograph better) but it's very subtle and shimmery! The new stampin' spritz bottles are awesome and CHEAP! Cheap enough to have one for every color:-) The following video shows how I did it...and has a few oopsies in it...I hope they make you smile. I chose not to edit my mistakes out so you can see I make just as many as anyone! LOL! I also added dazzling details to the smallest snowflake. I also have to mention that I had all of these (26 of them) out on the kitchen table drying and I threatened my hubby within an inch of his life to NOT touch them! I could just see him picking one up to tell me he liked it (he's such a good hubby...always humoring me about my projects) and totally smearing or messing them up, lol! Poor guy...it was like he was in trouble without even doing anything;-) Oh and sorry about the dog barking! She barks so much I didn't even realize it while I was filming, lol! The cats across the street LOVE to sit outside and torture her!
And finally I had a question on my post from yesterday asking if I used the new ink pads on my deer card and YES! I have ALL the new inks and they are all I use! The old ones are packed up and I LOVE the ink coverage of the new pads!
And if there's anything you are interested in seeing a video of please let me know:-)
