My first instructional video!

Hey look! I figured out how to put a video on youtube and on my blog! I'm so proud! I'm not very techno savvy, so I am pretty impressed with myself. Okay, enough patting myself on the back. Take a look at my little tip!



A few of you have said you wanted to see the card I created using the tip in my video. Well, here it is!

For this card, I inked the JustRite stamp with markers before stamping. After stamping I used a watercolor brush and some ink to color the leaves pink. Using the video tip, I cut/embossed the stamped image out perfectly using Spellbinders Large Oval Die Template. I then used a Copic marker and the airbrush system to add some light color to the panel. I cut/embossed a regal rose scalloped oval to back the sentiment panel. I added a little airbrushed copic to the ribbon to add some of the deeper rose color to it and used a glue dot to adhere it. The dp squares are 2 ¼” and they are backed with regal rose 2 ½” squares. The green panel is 1 ¾” X 5 ¼” with borders of 1/16th of Old Olive. I embossed the green panel with the Sizzix Happy Birthday folder and added a bit of ribbon. The card is white but I used ”Mini Cosmic Swirl” template from The Crafter’s Workshop to mask before airbrushing with two shades of pink Copic markers. I backed the whole card with a regal rose panel. The stamp is from JustRite’s Thinking of You set.

If you want to see just how close I could get the cutting using my tip, click on the photo for a close-up.

Hi ..this is my first time to your blog and I watched your video...great video and a great tip!!! Have never seen that before. I just have one comment if you don't mind. Is there a way to shut off the camera from constantly auto-focusing in and out as you move? Otherwise...it was a super video! Can't wait to see more!!!

Great tip. I know NOTHING about video and uploading, but can you turn off the auto focus on the camera? Seemed like you did toward the end. So when do we get to see the next one???

Great idea; I love when you ingenious ladies come up with things to make our lives easier! So practical; one of those hit yourself on the forehead moments (all the while saying, "Why didn't I think of that?")!!! You did a fabulous video too!!!
