Hello again friends! Today I wanted to share with you another card (with video tutorial) that I created using Stampin’ Up!’s tasteful touches stamp set.
Do you know what’s funny? The first time I pulled out this stamp set, I was really struggling to come up with card ideas.
But then, after my little trick for coming up with card designs, I now have SO many ideas, that I have more ideas than time! 😂
Here’s a close up of today’s card:
When I sat down to make this card I decided that I wanted to try something a bit different (for me).
Well…actually…there are a few things about this card that are different than what I usually create.
First off, it’s a monochromatic card – all I used was yellow.
Now yellow is definitely NOT my usual color.
In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever made a yellow card before.
Or at least if I have, it’s been a super long time.
Surprisingly (to me anyways) – I really like it – both the yellow, and the fact that the card is monochromatic. You’ll probably be seeing more cards like this in the future (either just yellow and/or monochromatic). 😉
Another thing that is fairly unusual for me, is that I didn’t color my outline stamp image *gasp*! Instead, I added a little color to my stamped panel using an ink blending technique (which you’ll see in the video). But the only color I added to the stamped images themselves was a little Mango Melody in the flower center.
The last thing that I’ve only recently started to add to my cards, is a greeting that has been heat embossed in white, onto Basic Black cardstock, and then fussy cut. I first did this with my Field of Flowers card set. But I loved the effect so much that here I am doing it again! 😀
Anyways, enough chit chat about the card. Let’s get on to the video!
How To Make the ‘Just Saying Hello’ Card
I have put together a video tutorial so that you can follow along with me as I make this card. This video tutorial was filmed in real-time, and I talk you through every single step I take, and why.
The only thing I don’t go over in the video is how to create your card base. And that’s because I already have a blog post on the basic card folds here.
This whole “real-time” video filming is fairly new to me. When I used to create video tutorials years ago, I used to speed up the video and do voice-overs.
But you know what? I’ve had enough of that.
Granted voice-over videos are shorter to watch…
BUT, they are a pain in the butt to film that way.
It takes me forever to voice-over. And that’s already on top of the time it takes to film the video itself.
Plus there are always so many little details that I can’t mention because I have to speed through the voice-over to keep up with the sped-up video.
So, real-time videos are here to say my friends!
Hopefully, you guys are okay with that.
If not…well…what can I say except “I’m sorry” ’cause they’re staying that way (at least for now).
