More Cards and Some Cool Videos!

Hello Everybody!

Looks like Ustream is a go....We tested it last night at my friends house and it worked, then I got a wild hare today and decided to try it at home!  Guess what...IT WORKS AT MY HOUSE!  All this time I was so worried about the lag....Not so bad said the 40ish folks that came over just to hang out this afternoon!  I think we stayed on for what ....4 hours just gabbing and having fun!  Thank you!

OK, today I didn't get a lot done, but it was just one of those days I was just playing rather than focusing on what needed to be done.... Here are today's offerings...More Valentine cards...I worked on a little Configuration Box Insert today as well.  I think I will show you all that tomorrow so I can write a few steps on how it's made.

Card #1





Card #2







Now for two amazingly awesome videos I found on Facebook tonight....One CRAZY AWESOME Idea from The MOST Incredibly Talented Artist....Kaz Hall!  She's beautiful inside and out!  This is such an awesome idea for a cool background!

Here we go...



Are Y'all Ready to be freaked out?  My Friend Steven Macari had this posted to his FB page (Thanks Steven!) and I just had to pinch it!  I am speechless!  Please take a second to see this and be freaked out!  Too Cool!



Have an awesome night y'all!

  7. I don't think I will go to the Post office after seeing these! You know what I mean :) I really need to get in the craft room and play, just play. The one with the box is such a creative idea. Wish I would have known about the Ustream. I was home all day by myself and could have been there(still don't know how it works, but I would have certainly tried.)

  8. Love both the cards! I'm glad you showed the one you didn't like...think it's pretty darned cool! I'd seen Kaz's video before...and then never tried the technique...gotta try it. And the painter...A-mazing!!! I couldn't figure out what he was doing...looked like crap until he turned it around...OMG!!! Thanks for sharing both videos and of course your wonderful cards!!

  15. Super videos!!!!! Totally shocked by the speed painter. Who'd of thought he was creating upside down. Amazing. Loved the resist with glue stick, but don't think I would try with any of my good stamps. Cool idea though.

  21. I'm sorry you don't like your 1st card - I think it's awesome. Don't look at it for a day and then you'll like it.I love Kaz's work but haven't tried the technicque yet. So sorry I wasn't home for your debut on Ustream. Can't wait for the next time. Have a great day.
    Hugs
