Tips for using the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders along with the Happy Celebrations stamp set

Do you ever say you are going to do something, and then it just does not happen?  That seems to be my life lately.  For the past year I have told myself over and over…and over… that I wanted to do more stamping videos.  Especially ones that are full of SIMPLE TIPS to help make stamping QUICK & EASY.

QUICK & EASY truly is my style.  I believe that card making should NOT take a lot of supplies and should not take a lot of time.  Most cards that I make take me less than 5 minutes. Seriously, I am not joking!  If it took me longer than that, I probably would not make them!

With that said, I realize that there are so many little tips and things that I do, to make my cards quick & easy, that I really need to share with you.  So….once I again I am “saying” it!  I have spent some time today coming up with a plan…..so here is my first video in my series that I am calling SIMPLE STAMPING TIPS.  My goal, within the next couple of months is to do at least one video a week.  Give me some slack though, it’s going to take me a little bit to get to that point.

NEED YOUR HELP….now, as I commit to doing this–I would love your feedback.  After you watch this video, PLEASE leave me a comment here on the blog, or on YouTube (or both) and let me know what you think.  If I know you like my tips–then it’s easier to share more and more of them.

So, here is today’s video:

 

I just have to say……this stamp set and embossing folder is crazy fun.  I did use the new 2017-2019 In Colors, which are only available to demonstrators right now, but you could make these same cards using any colors!!!  Here are all the cards I show in the video.  All but the happy together use the same basic dimensions:

  • Card Base:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Colored Cardstock:  4 5/8″ x 3 3/8″
  • Whisper White THICK:  4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
