How-to video: Nautical cards

Mid-week post with how-to video today! And guess what? Two cards in one video! Love it when I find the time to post during the week.

Yesterday, I was playing with a new summer set by “Paper Smootches” and these are the two cards I came up with:

Love the nautical look on them! Here are a couple of close-ups

I had so many ideas for cards using this stamp set … I think one day I might challenge my self and try to make a dozen of cards using one stamp set… what do you think? It would be fun!

Anyway, you can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel. Oh and my little Maria, will show you in the video what she did while crafting next to me.  Have fun 🙂

Supplies:


A little chattering: Do you ever lose tools in your craft room? I keep everything neat, clean and well organized but it happens to me all the time. The last month, I lost my favorite “honey-bee” scissors. You know how much I love cutting… I freaked out… disaster! So I had to order another one. It arrived yesterday. And guess what?! I found my old one today, it was in my daughter’s desk between her markers. Why do you always find your lost things once you get to replace them?!

Good news? Now I have TWO of my favorite scissors! Ha!

I am entering the above couple of cards on the Paper Smooches SPARKS “anything goes” challenge.

Giveaway winner:

The random winner of my “SimonSaysStamp May Card kit” is Pam Nutting. Pam I’ve emailed you.

Have a creative week my friends!

  1. LOVE both of these! I’m really digging the nautical trend… You know? I ended up buying the crop-a-dile to attach eyelets like you do in your videos. I think I ended up breaking it already! ): What a waste of money if I did…

    LOVED Maria’s artwork–wow, she’s SO talented and artistic!! Looks like one of your pieces!! Like mother, like daughter!!! (;

    Love how you used eyelets and cording – it MADE the nautical theme complete. Well done Maria . . . a “chip off the old block” . . . what a duo you make. Happy day to all.

    Such cute cards, Vicky! Your excellent fussy cutting abilities are really wonderful, too! But my favorite part of this video is that Maria was crafting right along with you! That just makes the experience twice as nice! :o) Your card was beautiful, Maria!

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Love all 3 cards! Yours and Maria’s too. I love that you give her access to your supplies. She is doing a beautiful job.
    My crafting room is not neat and orderly! I clean it up and as soon as I start working on things it turns into a mess again. Most of the time I do know where things are, it’s just those times when it is right under my nose and I can’t see it that get me nuts. LOL!

    I really liked how you weaved the bakers twine through the eyelets on the second card. I’ve never seen that done before…very creative. Tell Maria that I thought her card was just as pretty as her Mom’s card.

    I went on line Saturday and ordered the stamps and dies from Paper Smoochies. They were shipped on Monday so I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. I hope that you do the challenge that you were talking about …. making a dozen cards using this stamp set. I love it. Thanks again for the inspiration!
