Video Recording of LIVE Periscope Broadcast with a Going Global Masculine Card

Stampin-up-masculine-card-going-global-video-periscopeWhat inspired me to create this Going Global Masculine Card LIVE on Periscope earlier, I do not know! 

And, although, it's pretty raw footage with lots of uh's in my verbage (sorry Y'all!), it was fun being able to interact with those that were watching.  The input given was very helpful with the suggestion for the finishing touch for the card!

If you're not familiar with Periscope, it's a app for iOS and Android phones that enables you to record and/ or watch LIVE video from all over the world.

Anyway, if you're brave ;), take a look at the recording of this creative process below.  You may also find it HERE on You Tube.

 

 Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies for the card in the video.  Current Host Code: NACJEZBW

Product List

 inklings:

  • The Going Global stamp set and Going Places Designer Series Paper are great to have in your crafting supplies for making masculine cards.
  • Card base and layer measuremts: Basic Black- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Very Vanilla 5 1/4 x 4, designer paper layer5 x 3 3/4.
  • The Banner Triple Punch is constructed to cut 1", 1 1/2", and 2" banners but you can experiment with widths up to the 2" as long as you center the paper to be punched.

Makeover Monday- 2016 Valentine with Stampin' Up! Bear Hugs

Stampin-up-bear-hugs-valentine-makeoverWelcome to a new edition of Makeover Monday with this 2016 Valentine Treat featuring the cutest set ever, Bear Hugs, from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.

My goal each Monday is to take a previously recorded project and video tutorial and create a makeover with current Stampin' Up! products.  I have to say that I absolutely love taking on this challenge and turning a blast from the past into something fresh and new!

I do have to admit that on this week's project, those claws on this cute little bear look a little scary after seeing The Revanant with Leonardo Di Caprio this past weekend.  If you've seen it, you know what I mean!

This set is adorable, claws and all, and it will see plenty of ink in this craft room.  My grandmother name is "Honey" and the Hubs is "Papa"!

Let's take a look at the original product idea below.  If you prefer, you may find it HERE on You Tube.

 

 inklings:

  • Base is cut 8 1/2 x 3 and scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2.  Cut slits for ribbon in each fold.
  • DSP front on makeover is cut 3 x 3.
  • Ribbon approx. 15 - 18 inches.
  • Flower bunch stamp colored with markers before stamping then used blender pen to spread the color a bit.
  • Stamp the bear on the back of the card stock after cutting.

Here's the supply list for the makeover.
