Technically Speaking #1

Written by: iwona    29 Comments

Today I’m kicking off my “Technically Speaking” Classroom for StampNation, with a tutorial on embossing with dies techniques, which is also my first attempt at a video! It’s made public for two weeks from today only but you’ll have a lifetime access to it afterwards, from the StampNation Forums. I hope you’ll like it!

I’m well aware of the fact that the quality of my performance (and the video itself) is far from perfect, but I hope you guys will take it easy on me… I’ve been learning from scratch and burning at all ends making this one happen – I’ve never taken a video before other than a phone quickie and I’m quite camera shy – some of my friends can tell that I was a tough one to be forced into it to start with ๐Ÿ™‚
I also hope that you’ll be able to understand my accent. I knew I have it but only hearing myself I realized that it’s quite thick… yikes!

Here’s what today’s project looks like.

There is some info missing from there, so please do ask if you have questions. One thing that I caught, I failed to let you know what the doily die is. It’s a Nautical Wheeler Doily by Cheery Lynn. The supplies are listed at the end of the post, as per usual.

You have until 18th of the month to view this video freely, which is the date that my next tutorial goes up. Afterwards it will be made private on my Youtube channel and available exclusively for the SN members.

I can’t wait to see you there! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I knew you were worrying unnecessarily! It’s a great debut and your beautiful voice comes out cleanly and clearly! A great tutorial as well, fantastic technique to feature and a beautiful end result! Well done Chupa!!

  2. Yay Chupa, you did it! I’m so proud of you. Your accent is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing this wonderful technique. Looking forward to learning more from you!

  3. Great tutorial, Chupa! Love the rasied “hope” with the die cut one over top. Was great fun to hear your voice too! Had to giggle at the mix of Ausi and Eastern European accent you have ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Great video! Super great technique! I had to try it once I was done watching the video! It turned out super! Thank you for the tutorial! Can’t wait to see more on StampNation! I had NO problems understanding you, your accent is hardly “thick”! Thanks so much for putting yourself out there! FAB!

  5. As far as I can see your video and tutorial were fantastic, and I can’t wait to try the new technique; I loved the raised word background with the die cut word on top. As for the accent… what can I say? I believe I’m not the best person to judge it ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Congratulations on this, your first video Chupa! A really ingenious technique for using a word die two ways. Love your work – and from another aussie – what accent??? lol! Thanks so much for sharing.

  7. Loved your video. Particularly liked the technique for the raised border on your word die. No accent issues-I enjoy hearing the variations from round the globe! Thanks so much, and am looking forward to more.

  8. As the other comments state – you did a fine job presenting the information and I certainly had no problems with your accent. I did, however, have to turn up all my volume knobs and turn off any background noise to hear you. If you wanted to improve anything – that’s my only recommendation. Otherwise – great job on the techniques – doesn’t look that scary – now for me to try it with my SU! products.

  9. Congratulations, wonderful video – had not trouble understanding your sweet accent ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, and your card is stunning!!

  10. It always make me smile to hear a new voice. Especially a voice of a sweet friend. ๐Ÿ™‚
    No accent issues here, girlie! And of course, you already know I love your card, right?! x

  11. Great video and fabulous new technique. Thank you for sharing your talents, Chupa! I love your accent and could understand you very well. I did have to turn up the volume as far as it would go; perhaps this is something you could adjust on your end. I am a new follower and hope to start taking part in the sketch challenges after the holidays!

  12. I was looking for some inspiration so I was cruzing your blog – and came across your video! What a treat to hear your voice Iwona! You did great! You were easy to understand and the directions were perfect!

Your comments make my day!
