One Stamp Set, 4 Techniques (a VIDEO!)

Hello friends!
card sets  - Copy

 Over this past weekend, I made another video!
Since the stamp "Nutty Over You"  is seasonal, I decided to share it now rather than later. I was actually recovering from a one-hour dental surgery on the previous Wednesday! The surgery went fine, but the recovery phase was oh. so. painful to say the least... this is how I coped with a miserable situation--> I make stuff.

 You can watch the You Tube video here.

During the video, I didn't talk too much (as you can understand why). Dr. John could not understand how I could create the video with my dental situation. I told him that I got "magic" (wink!)!

 

Card #1
autumn greetings  

Card #2
 nuts about you
 
Card #3
 thank you for everything
 
Card #4
thank you

 This time, I use one stamp set with 4 different techniques. I hope that you are inspired by my take on this stamp set.
The stinky cute October 2016  Monthly Card Kit from Simon Says Stampis Sold Out
However, the stamp set in this kit "Nutty Over You"  and Lawn Fawn Plaid Pattern Paper are available to purchase individually.
s 
My humble advice---> You can SUBSCRIBE to the no obligation kits and receive them monthly for $ 24.95, or purchase them each month for $ 29.95 (while supplies last). When the kit is gone, it's gone.

Recently I am on this kick in making videos. As they say, the more you do, the easier it gets. This 8 minute videos took me many hours to edit! I truly hope it's worth at least 5 minutes of your time.
A thumbs-up from you will be much appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love your videos Virginia! Keep them coming please, you are a great source of inspiration. I have learned some great techniques watching you.

Dawn Turley said...

Great video Virginia. You are so talented. Love all the different ways you used the stamps.

Bonnie said...

That's how I cope too. Loved watching you play with this fun set!

Magical is a good word for you. Your voice sounds terrific in the video but, believe me, I completely understand why you didn't talk much. The aftermath of those dental procedures are the pits. Therapy in the form of cardmaking is a good thing (ala Martha S.). And such beautiful ones, to boot. If I had to have a favorite, that oval wreath makes my fingers itch to CASE it. Still can't believe you did this while in so much pain, though. You're one tough lady.

Back again. After another look at your cards, I realized there are two oval frames...now I can't decide which I like better...oh the struggle is real.

Teresa Doyle said...

I love all of the techniques on these cards that you've made using this kit. Just lovely!

Sheila H said...

Your techniques are spectacular, Virginia. I love all the cards. You really know how to stretch your stamps, too!

Miriam Prantner said...

These are wonderful! I especially love #3, the gold on vellum really pops against those papers and I love that little acorn!

All so cute and happy!! Thanks for sharing the different techniques, and I appreciate the efforts you put into the video. It does take a lot of time and patience to edit them!! Two thumbs up!! It's too bad I could only click once on YouTube. LOL

I don't know what's going on with YouTube, but I'm having issues trying to comment. Anyway....I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your video!!! You are doing a great job and have gotten better with each one!! Can you please let me know how you selectively stamped in different colors without masking? You did it with the sentiment and stamped it in different colors. Awesome job and wonderful cards!! I can't pick a favorite cause they all look FANTASTIC!!! Keep up the great work!! I love your blog posts!!

Thank you so much for your positive feedback, everyone!

To Jennifer Delauter: I have a hard time to reply to you privately. So I would comment here instead. When I stamped the multiple colors, I simply swiped the ink on certain area on when I stamped. You can certainly use masking for this step, but I was too lazy and find that "Selective Stamping" works!

Beautifully done Virginia, love the colors!!
