Tutorial

Here is a quick card that I wanted to show you. I did a dozen of these up for Valentine's Day.
Funny story. I tried to load both of these videos into one and spent the day yesterday trying to upload it to youtube. I have limited computer knowledge and little did I know that my file was WAY to BIG. I guess I can babble a little too much! LOL! So you have the option, you can listen to both videos, or just watch one.

The first video shows a little coloring and the cool airbrush system.
The second one gives some sewing tips.


The videos are all in "real time". I guess I should do less talking and learn how to edit (fast forward) some of the dull parts. Thanks for hanging in with me as I learn!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Wren says "I liked it," but she was disappointed that D. and M. weren't in the show. I didn't think you babbled at all! Very interesting tutorial.

Melissa said...

Fabulous tutorials Sherrie! Not only did you inspire me out of my "stamping stump", but you've got me going to try sewing on my cards!

Thank you!
M.

Thanks so much for taking the time to do these videos! I really enjoyed them. :-)

Kentucky Girl said...

Wow! Thanks for these! I'm a brand-new stamper and any tutorials or information that I get really helps me out. So far, these are the best ones that I've found!

Will you come to my house and be my personal teacher? I have cookies...and lots of coffee. :D

Kentucky Girl said...

Oh and BTW, I am getting out my sewing machine this afternoon to try these! :)

Jill said...

These were great! My three year old was watching with me and it kept his attention too. I kept scrolling up to look at the finished card and he was getting upset and wanted me to just keep it on the video. :)

Thanks for the sewing YouTube. I just got my machine back from the repair shop last weekend and hope to get some cute stuff going, assuming I can sew in a straight line!

Alli Miles said...

You're my sewing machine hero. Can we sew some cards next month? *lol* You think I am kidding!

ayah said...

LOVE, love, love your tutorials. What airbrush is it that you use. You make it look easy. Did I hear you say those were not Copic markers?

Thanks for sharing your talents.

So Cool! All your videos have helped me tremendously! Thanks for the inspiration! I will be sewing on my cards today! Thanks again

Sherrie said...

To answer a few questions:
Yes, these are copic markers, they are the CIAO style of copic marker.
I am using the copic airbrush system. I bought this at "All that Scraps".
Alli my sewing machine will be ready when you come!

EXCELLENT video tutorials!!! Your card designs are always so delightful!

One question-- do you pull your thread to the back of your card to tie off before trimming?

Sherrie said...

Good question Deborah, it depends, if the end of the thread is close enough to the edge then I scotch tape it to the backside. However, in this card, the stitching end is the middle so I just trim as close as I can....this is why it is important to backstitch, so it doesn't all unravel.

Look at you go! I still think you are going to have to charge admission or something!
Well done!

Radiogirl said...

Oooooh, how I liked both of those videos. I received a sewing machine for Christmas and I have not used it on a project yet. And I have to have the airbrush. I am on the hunt for it. Thanks for the wonderful info and inspiration.

Rose Ann said...

Thank you so much for these tutorials. They were really helpful and I did enjoy them. I liked that you did them in real time. Thanks for sharing!

ninajeanette2 said...

where can you get that airbrush thing and can you use different kinds of markers?
ps your tutorials are great, i abslutely love watching tutorials and yours were one of the best ones so well done

liannallama said...

oh, thanks so much! It was exciting to see the airbrush in action! I couldn't see video2 for some reason :(

debmom4ca said...

That is a great tutorial. I have never been shown how to sew on paper and that had a lot of great information. I also apprecated having the camera over your left shoulder it was easier to see around your right hand, and in this case the sewing machine.
