Hi everyone, hope your week is going well : ) Our weather has been great, a very mild and dry January, which is ok except I am going to need to start watering our garden soon if it doesn't rain. The mountains in California are also dry and without much snow, which is pretty unusual for this time of year (last year we had endless rain and tons of snow in the mountains).
Enough of the weather talk, onto the subject of this post which is a new AfterHoursStamper video! Yes, finally, after three years I have put together another video. The camera I was using three years ago was just not working right and this Christmas my wonderful husband gave me a new video camera, it is very basic but does the job pretty well.
Anyhow, I will be uploading a few more videos in the near future, one on my craft area, one on a really cool gift idea for crafters, the melted crayon technique and how to water color with Twinkling H20's. And if there are other videos you would like to see, let me know.
Today's video is on how you can make your own designer/background paper using an every day object, a wine cork! If you are like me you have a ton of background paper, but you stamp an image and can't find the right patterned paper to go with you have stamped. So, I find it easier to sometimes just create a background paper, and have done so with background stamps, and today, with a cork.
UPDATE: I have been asked to provide information on the stamp used in the video, here is a link to the stamp: Stampendous "Deco Lady." The stamp comes in clear, wood mount and cling mount (my son gave me the stamp for Christmas and I am really loving how versatile the stamp is!)
You do not need any special tools (except for the wine cork), and the card itself is quick and easy to make. Here is the video, I will try to post some links for you later this weekend, on Sunday hopefully (have been finding some sneak peeks for the upcoming Winter CHA, lots of goodies!)
Please let me know what you think of the video, this is only my fourth one and I see some things I want to "fix" in the next video, would love to have your feedback on this video though : )
Take care, have a great Friday and hopefully I can get to the links by Sunday.
