Alter a Scenic Stamp (A VIDEO)


Let's start 2017 with a new VIDEO! 
Are you ready for another video of mine? 😁
I am pleased to see that my You Tube subscribers have reached 1500!
For someone who films videos with a Lego structure, this is no small feat. I am continuing to use the Lego stand that my hubby made for me. It it a tried and true operation system! I don't foresee any changea unless I get a new camera!! I hope that I will continue to grow as a stamper and hopefully share with you up close and personal over You Tube.

 Penny Black (On the Lake)
This stamp may not  be your most obvious choice, but it really is an awesome and well-designed scene stamp.

You can watch this video over my You Tube Channel here.

If you are intrigued, take a look at my card and you would know what I mean.

How cool is that you can change the season/mood and style of this stamp?


The warmth of the sun really makes this card shine. I love how it turned out.


I hope this video is enjoyable to watch. I love using classical music for my video, especially the one with Morning by Edvard Grieg. I actually visited the statue of Grieg in Bergen, Norway in summer 2015. The music has a very special place in my heart.

More awesome sale are still going on over
Simon Says here. here.

As the sentiment says: "May sunshine and joy fill this special day".
Wish you a year of good health and happiness.

Thank you, thank you. Virginia this is the best tutorial I've seen. I have a PB stamp that has really given me fits. You Divide and Conquer method caused my brain to go ding, ding. That's the way to make my stamp work for me. Your card is lovely and your sun makes it shine.

Really lovely card, Virginia. This image could be on nearly any lake "up north" in Wisconsin. Your video, as well as your choice of music, are fabulous! I often think of your Lego structure for your videos; several of my young grandsons would be completely fascinated by it. I'm very impressed too! This is a really beautiful scene. Love the colors, especially the sun. The golden thread is a perfect finishing touch. Happy and Blessed New Year. Bev
