KISS Cards with Waffleflower Crafts 2

This week, we have Waffle Flower Crafts sponsoring the Dream Team at StampNation.  I had fun playing with this whimsical doily stamp and my distress inks to make four cards!

Distress Marker KISS Cards with Waffle Flower Crafts

(KISS = Keep It Simple Stamper)

Soooooo….I’ve been making videos for what, 5 years now?  THIS VIDEO is my very first voice over.  Ever.

I always just film and stamp and talk and let the chips fall where they may.

Sometimes I  stumble over my words.

Sometimes I make mistakes (but I usually figure out a way to fix them!).

Sometimes the original video is 15 minutes long and I edit and cut out as much as I can to make the video as short and precise as I can.

Sometimes I wonder if I cut out too much.

There are a few things I really liked about doing the voice over…I could speed up the video and not cut as much out.  (But once this video was done, I realized I DID cut out a lot of the process.)

Well, I’m a newbie at the voice over thing, and I believe I’ll try it again.  Let me know what you think…do you like a voice over?  Do you like a “talk as you stamp” video?  Or maybe you like a mix!

Thank you SO MUCH Waffle Flower Crafts for sponsoring StampNation!

Our weekly challenge was a photo inspiration and here is a peek at my card (complete with video) for SN:

These cards were really easy to make:

  • Cut all your cardstock at once- 11 x 4-1/2 Card Base, 5-1/4 x 4″ Layer, 5 x 3-3/4 Top Layer.
  • Ink your stamp with multiple ink colors.
  • Spritz with water – a little or a lot, depending on the look you are going for!
  • Stamp and die cut and adhere your greeting.
  • Color your cardstock with the Direct-to-paper technique and adhere to card bases.
  • Adhere stamped layer to card.
  • Cover heart in Crystal Effects or Glossy Accents and sprinkle on some glitter.
  • BAM!  You’re done!

    Love your videos both ways, but the “talk as you go” ones that really bring out your creative thinking process are my favorite I think. I like both the KISS card looks, less and more watercolory, with some differences for each one. Thanks for sharing your talent!

    I enjoy your videos no matter how you choose to do them – but the ” talk as you go ” is more fun .

    I would prefer the more crisp doily .

    I like any of your videos but the talk as you craft I think are more fun and involving. I love both card versions – crisp and not so crisp. If I had to choose, I think for this image, I would choose crisp as my favourite xxx

    Crisp and talk as you stamp.

    I like both the watercolor & crisp image the same. The watercolors seem to just gather on the inside, but the outside edge of the daily was still crisp. (You could then do something else little in the middle.) The crisp image shows the inner detail of the doily, which is pretty all alone. I, personally, like it when you talk as you are stamping. However, I am sure that you do MANY videos in just one week, which if you are editing each one, is very time consuming. So, a mix between the two is fine. Thank you for another great video and all of the tips and tutorials that you do. I know that I greatly appreciate them all!! (Sorry this is so long.)

    I much prefer the non-watercoloured one, And I like it when you talk as you go – I think it is much more fun! Thanks for all that you do = your videos are great!

    I really like the direct to paper stamping without the water. I like it when you talk as you go and especially love when you have to do something to fix smudges and stray ink spots, makes the rest of us see these things even happen to experts.
