Multiple Stamping and My Camera Setup with Lego

I am sharing a quick video about my camera set up with Lego. Since it is now a moveable structure, I thought it would be fun to share a video ( see here )

......and now onto a quick card.
 These days there are more new stamps that require multiple stamping.
You wouldn't think to use a stamp like this one to stamp multiple times, right?

Today's card is the result of using this very large and detailed stamp by stamping it multiple times in various inks.
 I love the happy stamping accidents. The background is much like a vintage pattern paper. Can you believe that it's entirely stamped? I sort of took the "Velveteen Stamping" approach and did something different with my mistakes. If you would like to see a video on this, perhaps I can make it work, especially now that I have a great camera set up with Lego :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the card Virginia! As usual its fantastic! I can't watch the video coz of my sloppy internet, once I get back to home after my vacation, would probably catch up on your videos!

Your video set up is amazing, Virginia! Dr, John is a Lego genius. Your card is beautiful. The popped up flowers are so appealing against the background stamping.

Brilliant design, Dr. John!!! I love that you put this structure on tracks, too...very cool!

Beautiful card, Virginia! Your background stamping reminds me of a 'Victorian' pattern, and I love how you popped up the flowers on top! Beautiful soft colors, too...very pretty card!

Thanks so much for the video, too! I can't wait to see more!

Pretty card!!! And love the short little video clip!

Miriam Prantner said...

Hooray for happy mistakes! That background really is wonderful and I love the fussy cut flowers you added. Love that Dr. John added the track to the video stand, very clever and useful! Sometimes husbands can be helpful! ;)

With that amazing jib that Dr. John created, of course, we want to see a video. When you showed how he added the tracks so it glides across the work surface, I almost wept, I envied you so much. That technique on your card appears really complicated, but I'm sure, you'll make it look easy. The colors you chose really do make it look like vintage wallpaper.

I would definitely love to see a video from that card!

I may have to commission your hubby Virginia! The multiple step stamping is very cool!

Beautiful card, Virginia! Dr. John is very clever adding the tracks so it moves. You are one lucky lady!

I love it even more with the rails! He is a genius--and a keeper! And your card is lovely. It reminds me of heirloom tapestry!

IT MOVES!!! fantastic:)
Thanks for the video. Dr. John could sell the lego plans for this stand online..HA! My kids are still figuring it out. The closeup shots are REALLY helping.
Love the card on your desktop IN the video too.

I forgot to comment on the card shone on this post. is that kissed or triple stamped? i can't think of the technique name...looks like velveteen. Very BEAUTIFUL whatever it is.
I'm so glad you have gotten into making videos!It is an amazing thing to watch a card being born:)

Diane Jaquay said...

Ooooh, just showed this to my hubby and he said he would make me one, woohoo!! Love your card today, Virgina, so pretty!!

Anne said...

Your husband is very clever with those Legos of his! I hope you will do a video showing how you made this card. I googled Velveteen Stamping Technique, so am interested in how you interpreted it to make this gorgeous creation!

Happy Dance said...

Dr. John is the bomb! My poor Dr. John can barely change a light bulb! Such an awesome video set up. Love those wheels. And what a beautiful card. It reminds me of silk wallpaper I've seen. Just gorgeous. Bev

Brenda said...

Any video you make sounds like a great idea. Great creations all round! Thanks.

Baroque duJour said...

I'd love to see a video how you did this - it is simply gorgeous, it looks like fabric and then picking out the flowers - its awesome.

All the years of Leggo's in my home and now my adult son's I just love this set up. Did he glue it? I sent it to my son as I know he will just love it. Now if I can get him to make me one. Wahoo. Great job on your cards. I love them.

Virginia Lu said...

To windinstarsranch: There is absolutely NO glue needed in the Lego camera set up. It's amazingly strong!
