NEW STAMPS *Day 3* and a VIDEO

Yep, you read the title correctly, I've got more new stamps and..... A VIDEO. (Seriously, I made a stamping video!) To begin, here's the next holiday release by Purple Onion Designs (available, Friday 11/26). This image is great for coloring with Copics. Introducing Dasher's Delivery: Now, on to the video! Yes, I may be the last person to jump onto this bandwagon, so I hope you like it. The card and video are for the project of the week at my local scrapbook store, Mementos (supply list available at Mementos' web site). The stamp/style isn't my usual, but I had fun stretching my boundaries a bit. Here's the card:
Here's the video. I hope you enjoy!! :) Click on the bottom right-hand corner of the video to watch at youtube and to see the entire screen of the video (it seems to be cutting off part of the filming when you watch here on the blog.)

I'm soooo ready to do my next video-- any suggestions or particular technique you'd like to see? Hugs, my friends, and have a wonderful turkey day tomorrow!

Great first video Jill! I was curious though- the angel on the video is a mirror of the one in the picture- is that because the video films backwards?

Barb said...

It's a good day! I finally got to see Jill at work, creating fabulous-ness!!! The only thing missing was the sound of your voice explaining the finer points of your style (maybe I'll need to take one of your classes for that).
Gorgeous cards today, Jill, and keep the video brilliance coming!

All I can say is WOW!!! I enjoed your video TFS I noticed that the feather and design on the girls dress in your sample card was on the opposite side of the dress you were coloring. sorry! I'm anal about things like that.. Happy Thanksgiving and I will certainly be back again.

Colleen Kramer said...

Great video! I just spent a wonderful couple of early morning hours perusing your blog. I'm so inspired I'm ready to run down to my little craft space and get inky. (I'll wait until after church as my fingers never quite get clean :) The first card you showed, Dasher's delivery...I'm scratching my head trying to guess how you put this card together. Did you mask dasher/sleigh? Is it cut/paste over the background? I've asked myself this about several of your other cards. Please consider this demo for your next video? Thanks for all the sharing you do!
