Ustream Card!

Good Evening Everybody!

Just about to hit the hay, but I wanted to share with you the finished card we worked on last night in my Ustream show...  It's my favorite card to make....By the way, I so appreciate you all coming by.  It was so much fun!  Thank you for being there!  I really had a blast and hope you did too!

We never finished the card.  Probably due to my long winded stories and showing you my war wounds!  Bahahahaha!  Oh yeah, having to start the recording 5 times and changing the camera didn't help!  LOL!

So tonight, I wanted to show you the finished card...Oh yeah, let me add this  first....I started a YouTube video of how to make the card tonight from start to finish.  I will post that tomorrow.  The YouTube card I taped tonight is a whole different look using the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 Paper Collection.  Funny how a different paper using the same technique can have a whole different look and meaning!

Anyway, here is the Ustream card from last night....








Thanks For Coming By To Visit!  I have a big day in the morning and promised myself I would get to bed early....

Have an Awesome Night...See ya tomorrow!

  8. Wow! That's what you made.......I don't remember that. All I remember is being petrified that you were going to burn yourself, Cesar or the house down. Those flowers did turn out beautiful. Still not sure if I would trust myself to do it. I will have to add this card to my"bucket list of Jim's crafts to make someday when I am 90!"

  9. I hate to put more ideas in your already overflowing head, but the bottom closeup image of the card would make a beautiful painting! Nice job. Class was great. Thank you for the inspiration.

  11. This is just beautiful Jim. I love all the soft details. I wasn't able to get into the class for some reason on Ustream. It wouldn't load for me. :(

  14. Oh Jim...it's just stunning! Just gorgeous! Just frilly! Love the design...the closure and the hinges...all genius! I wanted to make it to the Ustream so I could shout "CONGRATS" for RU, but baseball got in the way...we won too! You will have the best experience ever, and get to meet my buddy Marjie and Cristy and you already know Ellen. What a great group it will be!!!!!

  15. I watched most of the recording - between the sharp blades and the fire, it was a real action film! Lol. The finished card is totally worth the danger. I sill have the 1934 paper and I'm willing to cut into it to make this card.By the way, Jim, you take terrific photos.

  16. Just thought you would like to know..... people are talking abou YOU EVERYWHERE!!! A couple of random threads on a SCS. A couple of different FB groups....They know you are Jim something but you are a gentleman and that you are from Texas..but the main focus is YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT ALL THIS GUY DOES WITH PAPER!!! I am tossing in the link to your blog when I can.... You make me proud to be a fellow Texan! Oh and very excited that you are going to by teaching at the Crafty Scrapper!! That is just a hoot and a hollar down the road from me here in Palmer! Hope to meet you soon.
