My 3-Minute VIDEO

Hello friends!
Have you got 3 minutes?
Would you like to see a video?
Want to see how I created a colorful background with sentiment?

If  you've got 3 yeses, come on in!!

I challenge myself to create a 3 minute video (is that even possible?) and here it is! 
For my project, I decided to use a new (to me) sentiment set from Altenew.

The Painted Encouragement clear stamp set comes with lovely handwriting messages. I thought it would be fun to group them all together. I used nearly every sentiment (except "you inspire me").

You can see the video here.

This video may be short, but it took me many hours to edit and to get it right. There is just so much for this old brain to learn about making videos! The upside is that it sure gets easier now that I am starting to make more videos. Hope that is a good thing for you (wink!).

To be honest, when I made the video, I nearly abandoned in finishing the video.
I was like...uh..."what to do with that colorful sentiment background???"
I was nearly stumped.

In the end, I think I found a "solution" and the card did come through alright.  


You can purchase Painted Encouragement here.
Since it's such a short video, I figure that I have nothing to lose to share with you. LOL.
Perhaps my You Tube subscribers can still get a few tips and hints from seeing my process and get  inspired. That is the main purpose of my videos. I think I like making short videos!!
Hope you give it a thumbs-up if you like it.
Thank you for stopping by!

Your card is unusual. The colors are excellent and I think someone who would receive this card would be uplifted. Those Nuvo glitter drops sure look wonderful. Thank you for the video...who would 'think' to use all the encouraging words one one card....brilliant idea.
