FA-LA-LA

I'm super excited today to be taking part in Justine Hovey's 4th annual 12 Days of Christmas Video Hop. I love Justine's YouTube channel and it's a real honor to be included this year.

The way the hop works is you will go to YouTube and watch my video (or watch it here and then click over.) In the description of the video, I will link to the next person in the hop. You watch and comment on all the videos on the hop, and answer the question that each one of us ask somewhere in our video - and you will be eligible to win one of Justine's daily prizes. The hop runs from today until November 4th. Winners will be announced on November 7th on Justine's channel, which is also where the daily giveaways will happen, including shopping sprees from Simon Says Stamp, a MISTI and more!

I wanted to do a project where you could get two cards from a single process, since the holiday cardmaking season is upon us, and we need to be efficient!

So I have a very fun stencil printing technique where you get two very different images when you are done. It's very quick - my video is less than five minutes, and except for the sped-up outlining, is in real time - you will love how fast you can make something very splashy. So here are the two cards I got from the process. First - a masked stencil technique for a stained glass effect using the Stained Glass 1 stencil and Infusions. Hard to see the shine here, but the sentiment from Fa la la is embossed in silver.

 The second "freebie" image you get from the technique is a negative of the same stencil from monoprinting it. The glimmery sentiment is from Concord & 9th - free with qualifying purchase through November 8th. I definitely had a qualifying purchase! :)

How fun are those? I could play with that technique all day.

To see how I did them in a two-for-one technique, you can watch the video below, and all the others on the hop (links are on YouTube). Enjoy!



Loveyameanitbye.

  7. I too watched this twice and did NOT hear a question, unless you count the "I've heard of people..." If that is the question, I DO have the patience to wait for something to dry bc I don't like to have to start over. I can always work on something else while my project is drying. Thanks for the wonderful tip about curving stamp sentiments! Have a blessed day!

  8. I loved how your cards turned out but would be terrified of trying it myself knowing I would end up with a big mess! I usually make more Christmas cards than I send out but I tend to make close to 50 and end up sending out about half of that. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  10. Lydia I watched the video and really enjoyed watching you make your amazing cards! Just watched the third time and saw the question. Was too busy watching your process and missed the question twice. I usually make around 35-40 cards and more if I have time.

  11. Gorgeous! I saw the question in the window. I make about 110 cards unless I feel like more local friends need love.

  15. I don't make any holiday cards, because we don't celebrate any of them. Winter cards, yes; holiday cards, no.

  19. You crack me up with your 3000 pieces of post-it product. Maybe if you come visit me in MN we can go to the 3M store and get lots of goodies. I answered your question on youtube (more than 100).
