Something NEW!

I am beyond excited to present a NEW BLOG.  This will be a special place for education.  It's important to me that you learn how truly versatile our stamps are.  It will be a work in progress because I am busier than normal at the moment.  It might be fun to watch how it grows :)

Here are the two cards that I created using techniques that I share in the new video.  If you watch the video, you will see the entire Knick Knacks stamp set.



If you watch the video...and come back here to tell me that you did...you will be entered to win a Knick Knacks stamp set.  I will announce the winner on Monday's post.

Thanks for stopping by friends

  31. Great Copic tips for toning down the colors. I never thought of using the other side of a stamp to make a solid shape, either -- twice the versatility! And I am loving that rocking horse!! I can just picture using him with Green Acres and Buckaroo/Happy Trails. :)

    ReplyDelete

  43. Hey Kim, so excited that you'll be doing "regular" videos. One thing I love about your sets is how versatile they are...but love seeing how you can stretch them even further (would not have envisioned the rocking horse transformation...but it's genius). So happy to see more! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  44. WHat a great sset and video---I like the tip of coloring over the whole thing so it's not so white---never would of thought to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm so glad that you've made a new blog to show us how to do things. Loved watching this video and getting some ideas on how to do different things. I think your rocking horse is just so cute and the cards are beautiful. I love old toys and design my own Raggedy Ann doll patterns so this set really speaks to me. Keeping my fingers crossed I'll win it! Looking forward to your next video too.

  50. I watched both videos and thank you for creating an "educational" blog. I like the "action" created with the rocking horse-that is a neat idea. I also like when the mane treatment (fringe look).

    Using the solid back side of stamp is a great idea for a line stamp.

    I like the double duty for the stamp sets.

    Keep 'em coming

  68. I love the new blog and your videos.

    Don't be nervous making videos, we viewers are concentrating on what you are presenting and certainly don't mind any little bloops - they make the video human and warm and friendly.

    I loved the way you showed how to turn the rocking horse into a running horse. I hope you will do similar videos for "old" sets like Boob Tube and Wake Up.

    It really is fun to hear first hand what the artist thinks of when they use their own stamps. Great new blog!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Fantastic video Kim, seriously can't understand why it makes you nervous, you do such a great job! Can't wait until this set arrives, I'm going to try to look at every stamp in a different way now!

  92. Wonderful videos! I never thought of using the flat side of a stamp for background ink, then turning it back to the outline side and stamping again! How clever is that? Then, from your second video, I loved seeing the new stamp set -- gotta get it! -- and, how fun, to make that horse rock! He is so cute and you really showed his versatility.
    You may have felt nervous but you didn't seem like it in the video. : )

  109. Thank you for sharing your tips in your video! (I didn't notice any shaking hands! couldn't really see the colour change on my screen though) I liked how you created the fringe on the horse's mane! I've never layered a stamped image onto a stamped image like you've done. Really great how you can keep the finer extensions of a stamp visible this way! You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  110. What a perfect start to a Sunday - cup of coffee, snowflakes falling, and best of all - time to enjoy your videos.
