Fresh start with new ideas - 1 in 10 Card Video

Hello my Stamping Friends,
I am back, bringing some news to you. 
There will be series of videos posted, along with photos, product list and short instructions on "How To .."
For starters I am planning to publish one video every 2 weeks. I am calling it "1 in 10", meaning 1 card in 10 minutes.
As you can see, I am going to show how easy annd quick it is to make a hand-made card.

So let's start:
My first "1in10" card is called "Beautiful You", named after the stamp set on page 24 of 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
I am also using paper from "Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Pack", from 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue (pg 174).



Product List:

Stamp: Beautiful You 
Paper: Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Pack, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Whisper White cardstock
Ink: Momento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Watercolour Pencils - NEW!!
Tools: Blender Pen

I used our new Watercolor Pencils to colour in the areas I wanted to highlight. The Blender Pen is the perfect tool to create a cohesive look, well blended, a bit of shading, almost like an painter would do, but trust me, I am far from being an artist! With the help in my tools, the right background paper and stamp set, I created a beautiful card showingg a lady dancing on the shore, maybe here in sunny Nova Scotia ....

      
Using Momento Ink ensure a clean, crisp image that will not fade or smear when colouring 
or blending.

Instructions:
1) Fold 8 1/2"x 5 1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay CS, scored at 4 1/4"
2) For inside, 2 layers, glue 5"x 3 3/4" Whipser White onto 5 1/8"x 3 7/8" Melon Mambo and attach to inside of card
3) Stamp the image and sentiment on 5 1/4"x 4" piece of DSP
4) Using Watercolour Pencils colour in the image, then blend inks to create the finished look
5) Adhere DSP to card front - give yourself a pat on the shoulder, because you are DONE! Congratulations!

Thank you for your interest in my card. I find inspiration for most of my work on Pinterest, am always looking for ideas and samples to copy, which is ok to do. This is the card I liked and copied.

And now sit back and watch my video ....

I'd love to read comments, ask me questions, I am very excited about doing this movie-making thing. Let me know what you all think about it. 
If you'd like to copy my card and need the supplies, why not head on over to my online store, open 24/7.

Thank you all,
Be happy, create and stamp with

Christine
