10/6 Drip Drop ReInker Technique Video




Yesterday was my middle daughter's 15th birthday so the card that I made for her is from the background that I made on my first video. I just love how it turned out . . . here is the finished card:


I'm sure you are noticing all the pearls . . . a girl who is 15 can never have too many pearls, right? I love our basic pearls but I've tended not to use the teeny tiny ones quite as much so I have several sheets where just the teeny tiny ones are left. But . . . don't they look perfect on the scallops? I also really like how they blinged up the flower accents I put in the corners. The tiny scallops behind the Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon is from the new border punch called Dotted Scallop Ribbon. The 1/4" grosgrain fits over it perfectly. The ribbon behind it is our Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain. I kept the sentiment toward the lower part of the card because I wanted to keep the background a prominent part of the card which I think worked in this case.

OK - now . . . about the video. Let me tell you, I need a lot more practice at this. My girls were appalled at my "lisp" and figured people wouldn't even watch it past the first 30 seconds! I told them that stampers aren't as picky as teenagers and they will forgive me. I guess my camera really picks up "s" sounds or else maybe I do have a lisp when I'm nervous. So, my apologies for that. And, I don't have anything fancy to begin or end my video - it's straight off the camera. We do have a video editing program but I don't know how to work it. (That and 90% of all the other technology in my home! lol) My kids always promise that they will help . . . but they never do because they are hardly ever home and when they are . . . they are swamped with homework.

The other thing is that it takes FOREVER to upload videos! I don't know if it's because I have a low connection speed (which I didn't think I did . . . but maybe I do) or if I just need to find a lot more to do around the house while it is uploading which might make the time go faster. So, I may have to call a stamping buddy a little more computer savvy than me to find out if that is "normal" or not.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies I used to make this card:

I had heard about this technique but didn't understand. This video is perfect. TFS!

Betty Vene said...

This looks like a fun technique and one that will pair just right with the class that I have been asked to feature the Floating Reinker technique later this month. You've explained and demonstrated it beautifully. Looking forward to more videos. Thank you.

LOVE your video. Can't wait to try this. So much easier and faster than coloring the stamps. THANKS for sharing this technique.

Fabulous job on the video Kay. Very easy and natural and made it look like loads of fun. Can't wait to see the next installment of technique video's. Was wondering though if the Clorox ingredient later faded the color?

Congrats on your 1st video Kay!! And you did a great job. Love the card, really love the double color scallop circle. YOu can also make a neat mottled BG when you finish stamping your images, by putting a piece of CS onto your baby wipe. Can't wait for more videos from you!
