On Friday evening I finally got round to doing my first ever Youtube LIVE stream! It was so nerve-wracking, and exciting and in the end lots of mega crafty fun!
I started by sharing some project that I made using the new HoneyBeeStamps release, then I started working on a baby boy card.
I want to say a massive thankyou to those who joined me- I can’t believe I was crafting for over two hours and some of you were there the entire time- that made me so happy! It was also amazing to engage with you more and share our crafty stories together.
I will definitely be doing some more live videos and I will try to give some advance warning, now that I know that the sound and video quality is good.
If you have any requests, or would like a Q&A session then please do be in touch via the contact me section of the blog.
You will find the video over at youtube.com/hungryheffy if you want to take a look!
Two other things to share…
1. I posted all the cards from the address call today, so they will be with you shortly.
2. The chibitronics giveaway is still open until the end of April. check out the previous chibitronics post for details.
I thought I would pop by and share a quick video with you guys showcasing some goodies that I purchased recently from the Adhesive website AffixitCraft.co.uk, along with a few second-hand items that I picked up from Facebook selling groups.
Also in this video, I show you guys a lovely card that I got from Crafty Goddess Nichol Spohr. I was so thrilled to get this in the post, and this has inspired me to reach out to you guys. I have lots of cards in my craft room which are itching to be sent to some lovely HHC viewer, so if you would like to receive a handmade card from me, simply send me your postal address via the ‘Contact Me’ section of the blog.
You may already know this, but just in case you don’t – I also sell cards so if you spot any that you would like to buy, simply send me an email (via the contact me section) and I will check if it is still available.
Just a note – although I have quite a few cards that I can send, the numbers are limited. I will update this blog post when I have reached the limit, however, don’t fear, as I am sure there will be more address calls in the future!
Another note before I go – I am contemplating doing some facebook live and/or YouTube live videos whilst I am crafting, so I can connect with you guys more. We are just in the midst of sorting out sound and video quality, but I hope to have some news on that soon. 🙂 Spread the word to your crafty friends too, please! That would be awesome!
NOTE – A Huge THANK YOU to all who contacted me. I am afraid my limit has been reached for now. I will be sending out cards over the next week or so. When I have a new stash built up, I will have another address call 🙂 Happy crafting!
I’m spending today with some new Lawn Fawn goodies – and I’ve managed to make, video, edit and upload a video all in one day- which is pretty much a record for me. I was feeling proud as punch, until I noticed that there is an annoying flicker on the footage. Sorry about that guys. I have enlisted the help of mister husband to see if we can make sure that doesn’t happen on future videos. Grrr! Mega frustrating – I hope you can endure it for today.
Here’s today’s card! A fun interactive card featuring a carousel or merry-go-round – one of my childhood favourite funfair rides! We used to go to an Irish seaside town called Portrush, and they had the most amazing Carousel – it always seemed like pure magic to me and my sister!
I thought this unicorn would make the cutest little element for my carousel, and I coloured him with pastel copic colours, and added a layer of glitter with my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush marker. I then added some extra sparkle using the sakura clear glitter gel pen, around the horn and the mane. Everyone knows that unicorns are 98% sparkle!
Of course there is some distress inking, and whole load of diecutting. I even threw in a little heat embossing with holographic embossing powder – for an extra glimmery shine!
The video walks you through how I made the card from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it!
Don’t forget that the Chibitronics Giveaway is still open until 31 April 2017.
