I’m back after another short break, but it is my goal this year to provide you with a video tutorial each month. It’s one of the things I’ve set out to do. And, if there isn’t one each month, then by the end of this year, by golly, there will be 12. Some months just might have two, especially if I skip a month. Sometimes time just gets away from me.
My original intent was to start the year with a tutorial using different stamp sets, but I decided since it is so late in the month, I might as well start by celebrating Valentine’s Day. I’m presenting to you a video that I have done in which I create a Valentine Pop-Up card I’ve designed. So I’ll show you two cards in the video and I will provide you with a list a supplies for both cards at the end of this post; however, I will only decorate the Valentine card in the video. The second card is self explanatory as far as decorating is concerned. So is the Valentine card, but I know that beginning stampers like to see things done, and that is completely understandable. If I chose to decorate both cards in the video it would just be way too long. I don’t want to put anyone to sleep. You can use the basic pop-up card for any occasion. Have fun decorating it any way you want.
I apologize in advance for some of the bloopers in the video. I am way out of practice, which is another sign that I need to do this more often. Also, if anything could go wrong while making this video, IT. DID.! From running out of disk space on my camera, to a camera battery dying in the middle of filming, to my phone ringing…to sloppy stamping…you name it and it happened. 🙂 I also had to drag out my old, slow laptop to edit the film, because I didn’t realize windows no longer provides downloads for Movie Maker for Windows 10. So in the process, I thought I’d learn a new movie maker software, but realized very late last night that wasn’t going to happen!
Here are photos of the Valentine Pop-Up!
And this one I call Painted Poppies Honey Bee Pop-Up!
So here you go with the video. Let me know if you have questions. Also, the link for the printed tutorial on how to make the pop-up mechanism for the inside of the card can be found here.
Thank you for stopping by here today.
Until next time…
Here is the supply list for the Valentine card.
