Today marks a new beginning in the Crafty Life of Cathy Z: cardmaking.
I thought it might be fun to make some videos documenting these new creative adventures. Mostly, I wanted to show you how I am inspired by others and maybe you can take some of that inspiration into your own crafty endeavors in the cardmaking realm.
I made my first-ever, step-by-step video tutorial in the new series I’m calling, “Cathy Makes a Card.” It’s simple. It has some alliteration. It might be fun for you to watch.
For a list of all the products used on this card, see the info below the video on YouTube. One item I will highlight here that is making it possible for me to really enjoy this whole stamping thing? The freaking MISTI!
While the image above is not from this project, this tool (and I purchased the Mini MISTI) is LEGIT! Yes, it’s an investment, but I already want to buy the larger one. It just makes stamping evenly and consistency possible. For me, as a stamp newb, that was the part that always made me think, “Yeah… not for me.” Well, not anymore! Highly recommend this. Worth the $49!
Going forward, I’m sure I’ll get better at the video thing. Other than one caption typo, I think it’s pretty okay. I’m good at screen casts, the type of digital how to clips you see in my e-courses. This real life stuff? Fun, but tricky. Again, I have much to learn but hey, it was fun and I’m just getting warmed up!
NOTE TO MY MOM: Mom, please act surprised when my card shows up in your mailbox next month. I love you!
