Mission accomplished! I created my first stamping video tutorial. Click the television below! It lacks Hollywood potential (the quality gets compromised when it's uploaded to Utube) and there are occasional glare issues . . . but I'm excited that I finally crossed over to "moving pictures."
Music and captions were added because my narrative sounded like a lisping alien. If any techies out there know how to improve on this, please leave me a comment. Perhaps I'll evolve into "talkies" before long.
I want to give a shout out to Veronica of VK Design Co. for this fun tutorial button. She also created my latest Stampin' Pretty blog design and buttons. She's reasonably priced and her work is nothing short of genius.
This sketch is attributed to Julee at Poetic Artistry. My Very Vanilla card base is 5.5 x 4.25, scored on the side. I layered Riding Hood Red (top) and Basic Black on the bottom. The black received a little jazz from a Scallop Edge Punch and three gold brads.
The top border was heat embossed in gold on Very Vanilla using Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Borders stamp set. Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain offers a luxurious accent. The patterned paper on the lower half is from Stampin' Up!'s Bella Rose Designer Series.
Details for the "metal" tag are included in my Faux Metal Tag Tutorial above. It combines the Cute and Curly holiday stamp, gold embossing powder, heat tool and the Curly Label Punch. TIP: You could use the same process to make silver tags with Silver Embossing Powder and Brushed Silver card stock. The tag is propped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered to Very Vanilla card stock matted on Basic Black.
TIP: Both rows of Gold Brads were lined up with precision using the Template and Paper Piercer from Stampin' Up!'s Crafter's tool kit.
