Today I have another fabulous fancy fold card video for you. It was requested by one of my subscribers quite some time ago and she sent me a photograph of the card she asked if I’d make a video of. The card had been made by a German demonstrator who goes by the name of StempelPunktchen. This is the link to her video called Anleitung WasserFallkarte (einmal anders). I believe this means Alternative Waterfall. Isn’t Google Translate amazing!
This card took me longer to prepare than the time I had available; this was partly because it was hubby’s birthday on 5th November. In the evening we went over to Vicki and Leigh’s for a celebration meal. Anyway, the long and short of it is that my prototype and my before-video card are one and the same! Not surprisingly, take one didn’t work out according to plan so I had to start again and do take 2. This is precisely why I like to make a prototype first then a card immediately before recording the video! This week, it just wasn’t going to be that way!
I had already done all the stamping in take 1 and used them for take 2! I went through the stamped images and explained which stamp sets I’d used as well as which inks and Stampin’ Blends. This card is ideal for showing several different designs in a pack of Designer Series Paper (DSP). I used Sweet Stockings DSP for the Cherry Cobbler card and Whimsy & Wonder DSP for the Misty Moonlight card.
During take 2 after I had shown the correct way to cut the framework for the mechanism, I took the mechanism from take 1 to demonstrate where I went wrong but it wasn’t wrong! I couldn’t believe it! Later today, I’m hoping to look at the take 1 video and double-check what actually happened. I’m sure I have gremlins in my studio!
On the Cherry Cobbler card, I made a mistake of putting a Basic White sentiment which I’d put on a layer of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock on the front flap. I found that when I was closing the flaps, the sentiment became stuck by the layers on the inside of the card. To get round it, it needs a gentle lift with my finger! On the second card, I used the same sentiment but put it on the outside front of the card! It looks so much better!
If you compare the cats, dogs, fish, hamster (?) and mice on the Sweet Stockings DSP with those on my DSP, you’ll notice I have opened all their eyes with the help of a 0.3mm marker pen! Mine look so much better. That’s it from me today. I very you have a very blessed Sunday, take care and stay safe. I shall be back with you soon. Happy crafting.
