[Music] hi guys it's Kelly wettable and I'm back with another video for honeybees stamps today we are going to be working with a couple of the newer stamp sets the little mouse is from May the mouse which is cute and has all these like totally adorable accessories and then I'm also going to be using the piece of cake stamp set because I cannot stop myself pretty much I mean I just been putting it on every card I think this is the second or third card I've done with it and then the sentiments are it's called Brie mine like free like the cheese it's cute anyway please excuse my man voice it's going to do this voiceover last night when I added the video and I had just a terrible terrible headache that I could not seem to get rid of so I was like meh I'll just do it in the morning before I go to work and when I do things in the morning that means that I sound not like my usual peppy self because I sound like a man that's pretty much what that is so I kind of had this idea in my head this is how like the card came together I wanted to do like a little scene card or this little little mouse that's coming out at this home and there's a like a little cupcake there that you know says be mine like this little Valentine I thought it would be adorable so I had been thinking about this idea all day which just goes to show you that's how you know you're a card maker when you're like driving home from work and all you're thinking about is like your card making ideas so anyway I you saw me with the pencil on the t-square ruler I was creating like the woodwork at the bottom of your household why could I not think of what that would be called that does not seem like a difficult word to remember trim woo there we go we out there it was a long walk so I created the trim there and then I wanted to do like some wallpaper in the background and like an up-close of the carpet and then of course his little you know the little mouse hole you can see that my c7 needed desperately to be refilled which eventually I do you know take the break and refill it but I was just to get it done and I knew I was gonna go over it with a bunch more colors so the reason that I'm shading it like this is so that it will look like the whole goes back so like there's more light on the left-hand side so that it looks like the blacker it is the further away it's getting I wish in hindsight that I would have gone maybe a little bit further out of the edge with the c7 and not so much c5 because you'll see when I start blending them here the c5 really picks up quite a bit of color from the c7 and so kind of ended up being a little bit later than I wanted but it is what it is I also got a little you can see it at the bottom where it's not perfectly straight it's started bleeding into my carpeted area that's okay like I'm just gonna position my mouse so that it covers it up because I'm like I don't know I'm invested in this point you guys know I don't start over I just always figured there's a way to fix everything here I'm starting with some light blues because that's what I wanted the wallpaper be I had to take a break here to re-ink this one as well I used to be really really good about like setting aside time to just go through and re-ink all the ones I had refills for and now I'm just I basically just refill them as they run out which is typically in the middle of a video because yeah that's what I'm using them so here I'm just filling it in with the lightest blue color I pulled out three blues excellent ended up using the lightest and then the mid-tone and I'm just going to add a little bit of shading coming up from that baseboard that was the word I was trying to look for baseboard see and you would not think that that would be a difficult word to remember but anywho so that way it would just you know give a little bit of shadow and then you know blend that back up if your coloring anything that's a large area with your Copic markers you want to make sure that you're always going in the same direction it's going to give you a much smoother look so for this one I came up from the baseboard and I just did all the shading that way and then also if you're doing a background with your kopecks you want to make sure that it's it's saturated so that it's smooth here I've picked out some Browns these are kind of like my go-to use you my videos you know the e 50s is just kind of when I gravitate towards and I'm going to be using it for the cupcake later so I try to when I'm picking my colors I try to pick colors that will work for not just one thing that I'm doing but other things that I'm doing when that same color family because otherwise I would just end up with so many markers all over my desk cuz I don't put them away so that way when I'm done and I'm doing the you know video and editing the product I know which markers I used so then I either write them down or I link them right there and then I put them away so that was the little bit of wood grain I do have a whole video tutorial on wood grain on my channel if you're interested in that that was just very brief go over to get a base color for my carpet I'm using mustard seed distress oxide ink you can use distressing you can use whatever other inks you want I just like to have a base so I don't have to use a bunch of Copic ink the other thing I'm going to do is I'm going to use tumbled glass distress oxide and this is how I'm going to create that wallpaper look at the background the any of them it doesn't matter kind of which one you use any of the characters for honey bee always come with a bunch of really fun accessories and so there's a flower in maze maze set and so I thought that would be perfect to create some wallpaper and I really like just tone-on-tone pattern I'm just gonna keep moving this mask around until I get everything stamped in the background but I like creating that tone on tone because it doesn't take away from your like actual like the the focal point of your card but it still adds enough interest I'm going to give the carpet some texture using stippling at one point I will kind of speed it up because it is a little bit long but I wanted you to be able to see the whole thing so the first go through is regular speed the second go through it was a little bit sped up um but yet just just doing dots this is my lightest color so I'm doing that's all over and then as I start to add the the darker and darker dots it will really just be more concentrated towards the back of the card like where the carpet is closest to the baseboard and then kind of down around the sides and the left and the right hand side I wanted the middle of that to be lighter so kind of like a draws your eye in to where the mouse and the cupcake will be sitting so like I said you know man voice that's the thing that happens I recently was telling telling a story about how I started dating again and then this card was a Valentine's Day card and it made me think about different like dates and things that I have been on over the years and so for me when I thought about like what was my best for my worst date it was really hard for me to come up with one because I try very hard just not to compare things so like I just take the experience for what it is worth and then I just move on so either it was a good or it was a bad experience it wasn't worse or better than another experience I guess um so I in thinking about that I was trying to come up with like tell me what is your like what is your worst date like what is it and I have not celebrated Valentine's Day in years just years because my when I was married are like dating anniversary was so close to Valentine's Day that we just skip town has a and celebrated our dating anniversary so it wasn't anything like I ever had to worry about and like now I still don't think it'll be something that I just I don't know I just never felt the need but anyway so my worst my worst date and I want to know what yours is to Tommy tell me in the comments cuz I want to know and so I just love hearing stories from people and I think they're super interesting so I think this is my worst date very you know we're gonna go back like you guys know how this rolls we're gonna go back and forth between the coloring and the storytelling so I wanted my little mouse to be gray and I'm going to add shadows in but I wanted him to be a light gray so the shadows are going to be under his chin on the left and right sides of his face back behind his little nose so that will kind of like sinking into the background down his sides at the bottom of his arms underneath his arms on his belly and then on the insides of his feet and his tail wall so have some shadow okay and then I'm just gonna keep building that out to my darkest color and then from my darkest deck into my lightest um so my or state I think was a homecoming my sophomore year of high school I think that was my it wasn't my sophomore year was my freshman year you know my freshman year I just want one of a bunch of girlfriends and that was super fun I like I didn't have a quote-unquote date so my sophomore year I was dating I was dating this boy named Ray and but I was my best friend this is like so convoluted how do you even tell the story my best friend's name was Diana at the time and she was dating this guy named Jimmy and Jimmy's best friend was Nick Nick and I were very good friends but I was dating this guy named Ray okay everybody follow along with all the characters I feel like you're correct in a book here so Nick really liked me and I was like about I'm dating this dude like it's cool that we're friends but like I'm dating this guy and Nick and I hung out all the time and so anyway I was going to homecoming with my boyfriend with Ray but he legit this is no joke he had a what was it a Merc it was a mercury tracer and like back in the day back in the 90s it was like super popular to like put lights on your car and like spell things out like they had like letter stickers and this is legitimate this is so embarrassing this is legitimate bang he actually had like Kelly and Ray I'm like the front of his windshield oh my lord um I don't know at the time I thought that was adorable right so anyway um he came to pick me up Deanna and I got ready at my house together and then Jimmy couldn't drive I can't remember why I cannot remember why he couldn't drive for some reason and so Nick actually drove him and then Raymond drove himself to my house to to pick me up so he shows up I'm super excited going to homecoming with my boyfriend blah blah blah blah he had got me a corsage now you guys know that I love crafts that I love crafty people that I am that I'm super supportive of all of the different like whether you're a cross teacher or a card maker a scrapbooker a just whatever it is that you do that brings you joy I'm super happy for you so anyway he shows up and he's very very he looks all adorable he's got a little sweater vest on it was super cute and he goes to give me my corsage it's a wrist corsage and it's fake it's a fake wrist corsage and I was so sad I was so sad because I wanted a real one like I wanted real flowers and then hindsight it probably was like all that he could afford but as a child in high school like I didn't really understand that that was what was happening there and you know what I'm saying so then in the interim Jimmy and Nick are also there and Nick's like shooting my boyfriend like dagger eyes I am trying not to cry because I have a fake car sighs my poor mother was like she was like I know you're so disappointed and she's like trying to like take like baby's breath like real baby's breath and like put it in there it's just like maybe this will help like god bless her so I'm like no mom it's fine like it's it's it is what it is it's fine so then we we get into I it's me and him in his car and Jimmy Deanna and Nick in his truck well his truck was super old okay it was like a really really old truck here I'm adding shading to the tag just because of where it's gonna be hanging down just to give it a little bit of depth so we're driving out we're driving to dinner before homecoming and Knicks truck was super old and the gas gauge did not work like this was like a normal regular thing the gas gauge didn't work so on the way to dinner for homecoming he runs out of gas now we're directly behind them it's not like we're gonna leave them behind these are the people were going to the dance with so we're all stranded on the side of the road while Nick is trying to figure out how he's going to you know fuel up his gas tank so we end up having to go to the gas station now we're all in dresses by the way like my hey I got an updo my nails is dead I'm in a dress on the side of the road in October because that's when homecoming happens here in Ohio and so then we gotta run to the a station by the gas can get the gas then drive back out to the truck do that so then by the time this is all said and done um we still haven't eaten and the dance is coming up okay let's let's go back to the card for one second um so here I just use the same colors I just used the lighter ones the 53 55 57 to color in the kind of like a vanilla cupcake underneath and then for the frosting you can see I'm just outlining the edges for the layer in the middle you can see how it's drawn then it kind of indents and so I thought that it would be I guess appropriate to add in another like swirl to match up with that indent so that's why you see that one that comes right through the middle here I was playing off of the indent that is on the side of the frosting drawing and then I'm just going to add it to the left and right hand sides of each of these cupcakes layers being very careful to leave a white highlight in the center because that's what's gonna make your frosting look shiny so just gonna same thing as always lightest to darkest darkest to lightest leave that white area I promise you that you will really like the way that it looks if you're looking for shiny frosting if you're Parker gets out of control and you lose the shine don't worry you can put it back in with a white gel pad don't stress about it so anywho back to this homecoming kind of disaster date so we we I the boys set up the dinner situation okay and so we didn't have anything to do with it so we're we do this whole gas thing blah blah blah the dance is coming up this is no joke they took us to McDonald's they took us to McDonald's we walk into McDonald's in our homecoming dresses heels the whole deal that was our that was our homecoming dinner and I would like to say that that was our homecoming dinner because we had to stop into the gas and we were out of time but honestly I think we were always going there I think we were always going to McDonald's so you know after my cheeseburger and small fry or what-have-you we end up going to the dance and then this is all this is terrible and it's because the corsage it was I mean it was nice it was nice that somebody made it and I don't know who made it it might have been his mama and I'm appreciative of the time that she would have taken to do that now but at the time I was not and I didn't want to be the only girl who walked up in this dance for the fake corsage so we get to the parking lot and I take off the corsage and he is like what are you doing and I was like you know it's so nice but it's it's handmade and it's fragile and I don't want to ruin it and he's like yeah that makes sense you should probably leave it here guys I'm a terrible person because that was not the reasoning at all like it just wasn't but it was not yeah it just was not and then like of course my girlfriend who I've been you know she's my best friend we've been friends since we ran track together in junior high she's got like this beautiful real corsage I know I was a little bit envious I would not recommend being that way but obviously I was a kid and you know kids are are different so I think that that was my worst date and then so later on rain rain I broke up break out you know cuz I'm 15 and so we end up breaking up basically because the kid can never show up when he says he's gonna show up he lived in a city that was 2 cities over for me and the only reason like we can go to school together the only reason I got to see him is because he drove so then he would say he was coming over but then he wouldn't come over and it was just like childhood drama and I spent a lot of time I told you with Nick cuz we were friends and my girlfriend Deanna totally ratted me out and so she this well I guess I'll tell you after the fact so she um Nick gets a girlfriend ok and this is like crazy to me because I'm just used to spending all my time with them like he picked me up and drives me to school he picks me up from school journey brings me back home we hang out and play video games like we go get coffee together my family knows him my friends know him like we're like we hang out all the time and until he gets this girlfriend and then I never really see him and it's a struggle for us to hang out like fine time because he has this new girlfriend and I was like what the heck I totally miss Nick and then so we were out we were just driving around I think cuz that was like a thing that we did and you know my area we just hung out like and drove around and went like got coffee it was like there was a bunch of things going on but anyway so we were just like out driving around one night this I'm totally gonna date myself you guys oh my gosh I am it's gonna happen so we're driving around and he gets up his pager I'm a dinosaur his pager goes off and so we stopped it we stopped at a pay phone so he can call his girlfriend feels like cellphones are the thing nude pagers are cellphones or not and so he steps at a pay phone to call his girlfriend and he was like hey I you know she's at my house with my sisters that's how we she was a friend of his sisters and he was like she's at my house like I have to go and I was like okay and he was like look I can either take you home or you can come back there with me and then I'll take you home afterward so from where we were to where he lived it didn't really make any sense for him to take me home and I'm over here clearly thinking like it's some sort of emergency because like she's paging you and he's got to go back right away so of course like I don't want to keep my friend from his emergency so look don't know that's fine I'll just go with you so we get to his house and she's there his sisters are there and so I stay and hit like in his room like his sisters were in his bedroom and so I was standing there talking to them and like he and her walk this is I haven't even thought about these stories and forever oh my gosh anyway they walk over to like where the bathroom is it's for some privacy so they can have this conversation but they leave the door open and there's an enormous bathroom mirror so look I'm talking to his sisters and like I look over and the reflection in the mirror like I can see him kiss her and then like I know it was like it's really funny I guess because I never looked at him that way like as my friend and then I watched him kiss another girl and I was like I think I like Nick what has happened here because I guess I never really thought about like that he would be spending all this time with somebody else and you know kissing somebody else goodnight and blah blah blah so come to find out and I did eventually tell him because it got to the point where I just wouldn't like hang out with him anymore because he had a girlfriend I knew how I felt I knew that that was inappropriate while he had a girlfriend and so I just wouldn't hang out with them and then he was like you never call you don't write whatever and so I ended up having to tell him and then he was like sames and so he eventually broke up with that girl and then he and I dated for who like almost three years before that went bad or maybe it was two I don't know it was long it was a long time ago um but man my girlfriend Deanna later told me that she so the difference for a long time and apparently this is my personality she told him if you want to date Kelly date someone else and he was like nah but I want to date Kelly and she was like yeah and I'm telling you if you want to date kelly date someone else and he was like no I don't think you're understanding me I don't want to date someone else I want to date Kelly and she's like yeah and I'm telling you if you want Kelly to want to date you you need to date someone else these apparently she couldn't foresee that like I just couldn't see what was in front of my face so yeah that was that was that funny stories here what the die cutting so you saw me stamp out the cupcake together and then I decided I wanted to die-cut them which is kind of problematic because die-cuts always cut out a little bit more area around them but I'm gonna make it work so I have cut both of the pieces out and it cuts right through the middle of my cupcake which isn't actually a huge deal because I'm just going to tape it back together so this was like obstacle number one that I needed to overcome with this card and I just used a little bit of tape to put on the back and then you know trimmed it so it would make sense to hold those two pieces together and ultimately I'm going to be adding it with the Scotch foam adhesive so it's not really gonna matter because it's not gonna be wobbly it's gonna have the foam right behind it my sentiment is going on this little tag which by the way I have put adhesive behind just like a little bit of the temporary glue runner to hold it in place while I stamp it and it's going to say be mine question mark you know cuz I told you I hope I had this whole story this whole story planned out for my little mouse because that's what I think about when I'm driving home from work my mouse stories so yeah I just thought it was cute and it's got all these like the sentiments have all these super cute little things in there and it has you know like the and symbol and the question mark and the exclamation point and there's just like their sentiment sensor in the best like let's just admit it because there's so many options and they don't of them are together and you can literally build your own set so I'm using my pokey tool to poke out the actual hole in the tag because I'm going to use some silver string to tie it around my cupcake starting to build my card here I'm going to position my little mouse so that his tail comes up covers over that little gray blob remember from back in the beginning when it got on my little yellow carpet and then here is this little silver string I will try to link to one that is similar to this I just bought this for like about 25 at my local craft store so I'm gonna feed that through and then I'm just gonna tie it with a tiny little bow that I learned back from you know when twine was a thing it's twice tell a thing twine might still be a thing it's just not a thing for me because I don't often make multiple layer cards so I don't use a lot of like the accessories so when I do have multiple layer cards like this one I pretty much have to take advantage of anything that I've purchased and need to use but I do I have this little thread the silver thread in silver and gold and I think that it's totally adorable so I'm just gonna mess around with the bow here I hold the center and then just kind of pull the strings in the loops until I get a bow that I like the size of I'm gonna trim that off I'm gonna put the strawberry right on top of my chocolate frosting in hindsight I kind of wish that I would have put the shiny area on the other side of the strawberry but I did what I did and it's done so you know that's just something I accepted here when I'm going to put on the the cupcake on I don't realize can you see that silver string I don't realize that it has shifted and now it's like I don't it's like at a diagonal I'm gonna come back and fix that to you there was a couple of things I really like the concept of this but at the end of the day like I just was not loving how the card was coming together I added a little bit of a shadow underneath the cupcake and underneath my mouse you see you know kind of ground them in the scene and then I'm gonna add some white highlights to the strawberry to anywhere and like the cupcake where maybe my white got eaten then also I'm gonna use it later on for my his teeth so here's where I'm putting the little sparkles on and I realized that it's totally crooked so that I'm gonna have to pry it up and fix that thankfully it wasn't too too stuck down and I could just peel up one side and just kind of scooch it up a little bit thankfully but it doesn't really matter because this is the final card and I don't love it so at the end of the day I can't leave anything alone you guys know this so I take the cupcake back off so you cupcake off take it off nothing tore nothing was ripped nothing like that I had you have to understand going forward with doing something like this you are risking that you're risking that you might break something and I just said I'm gonna do the wallpaper already now like maybe that will make it look more cohesive so I originally went over it with my lightest red color which is an r32 and I didn't like that so now I'm going in with an r35 and I'm gonna add the same shading that I did before when we did it blue I'm just adding it with the r29 now I thought about going back over and stamping those flowers again because I realize it's probably next to impossible for you to see but in real life you could still see the like the ghost of the blue flowers and I didn't want to have to worry about matching them up the other thing that is in this little may set amongst all these adorable accessories is this little teeth and they make him super cute so I gave a little buck teeth and filled them in white and then that is actually the whole card so thank you guys so much for joining me and I will catch you on the next video bye [Music]
