Stamp N doodle Tutorial and NEWS

Oh wow was this a different challenge for me in more ways than one!!!
Firstly Joyce came up with a wonderful embellie, which as I am not really into hand sewing, was a challenge in itself, then Making the card, and then.....................making a video on how to do the Embellie!!!
For the details and how to on the embellishment you do need to pop over Here, and hopefully take part in the NEW set up.
But first to my news, and BOY do I have some!! I was Honoured by Lynne at Stamp n Doodle, and asked to be the Tutorial Team Co-ordinator! Which is why I haven't really been posting as such, as there was quite a bit to sort, lol.
Firstly we wanted to expand the Tutorial Team a little bit, and we are delighted to announce that Stacie and Joyce have joined the Team.
Then Lynne and myself wanted to introduce video tutorials to help with the "how to" side of things, so I had to figure out how to do it, lol, then actually do some for practice! Nerve wracking!
Next up is that soon, as in very Imminent, there will be a Tutorial Team Challenge!! So check out the SND website for details!!
Anyway to the card and embellie for this fortnight...........
The Stamp is one of Lynne's designs Teegan, and is the Digi Stamp of the Month which means 25% off in the shop, and She is fabulous! Perfect for the Challenges this month, especially the current Challenge, Green and Gold on the DT page.
I used promarkers to colour Teegan, and her dog, I found a Shamrock clip art Freebie from Here, and popped it all over a backing paper from My Craft Studios A Taste of Spring CD. I cut an ornate matt using Cheery Lynn Royal Coved Rectangle Mega Doily DL192 from some light green card, and matted that onto some Dark green card, before mounting it onto some more of the Lighter green base card.
I used MCS to adjust the print off a green version of the backing paper, and took the colour of the Shamrock for the text colour, and cut it using Spellbinders Fancy tags 3.
Then the embellishment.......... the whole point of the card really, which is bottom Right corner, so pop to The Tutorial Page for how to create Joyce's wonderful embellishment! And the video! The sound's a bit out of sync, but I refuse to do it AGAIN! The number I have had to throw away due to poking myself with the needle, and swearing! And Blood everywhere! Dogs Barking, Phone ringing, Kids barging in....you get the idea!!
so why not have a go for yourself, there's all sorts of Challenges going on including a never ending stamp!!!

Hi Lou. Its hard work doing videos isnt it?! And then theres editing and uploading! And Im exactly the same, the amount of times Ive had to redo something because I do something wrong or a bad little word slips out, its just ridiculous, lol. But its worth it in the end when people appreciate the time youve taken to show them something. I love your card. It reminds me of when my sister used to Irish dance. She was so cute with her wee blonde curls bouncing about and her looking so pretty in her wee dresses. Love this card. Lee x
