FLASH CARDS 2.0 -Vintage Boho Blossoms – Video No. 1

What do you think?  This is the first video in my new series call FLASH CARDS 2.0.  If you’ve been following my Flash Card series, you are going to love this new take on the Flash Card concept!

If you are brand new to my blog, let me explain Flash Cards.  It’s a very simple template that you pre-cut in advance.  When you need a card in a flash, pull out a colored piece, pull out a neutral piece, stamp and send!  It’s that easy!  I personally cut 1 sheet of every color that Stampin’ Up sells so that I am always ready.  I keep all these pieces in a shoebox so I can just decide on a color and create!

I know what you’re thinking… “But Connie, all the cards will look the same, won’t they?”  Heck NO!  Not when I’M done with it!  I will teach you dozens of different ways to use the cardstock and make sure no card looks the same.  The beauty of it all is that you won’t need any additional cardstock.  I utilize every bit of cardstock in just those 2 pieces.  Cool, huh?

Today’s card is a pretty vintage card, perfect for any card sending occasion!  Creative Elements is one of my favorite stamp sets.  So versatile!  The punched flowers  really make it special!

    I love the concept of Flash Cards, and am so impressed you came up with a second template! I love the design of your cards, each and every one. I just get so nervous watching you hurry hurry hurry in your videos beyond what is realistic. Nothing bad will happen if you slow down just a little, and your vids might be more fun to watch. (Not saying they’re not fun, just saying they could be more watchable if you relaxed a bit.)

  9. You know, you are absolutely right. I have usually had about 5 cups of coffee before I shoot a video. Maybe I should cut back? lol

    Seriously though, I never want the viewer to get bored so I tend to try to speed things up. I can slow it down a bit. Thanks for the comment! It’s really helpful!

    • I am actually the opposite with project videos–I really appreciate when the content moves along quickly 🙂 I can always pause and/or rewind if there is something I need to see better or jot down for personal reference. What bothers me more is too much talk that is not directly relevant to the action in the video.

      • Connie says:

        Kimberly, i absolutely agree! That’s one reason I always have my pieces pre-stamped, pre-punched, adhesive on the back and ready to go. LIke you said, you want a video to move along quickly (no one wants to watch me stamp a card from start to finish anyway). I try to show only what you the viewer needs to see for you to be able to create the project at home. I worry more about talking too fast and leaving out some really important step! lol

    I just found your site with the flash cards, love this idea and can’t wait to start. Is there an original video, I started with this flash card 2.0 and have been looking at some of the cards, can you point me to the original measurements. Thank you Earleen

    • Connie says:

      Earleen, I am so glad you stumbled upon Flash Cards 2.0! To see the first video, do a quick search on YouTube for “Connie Stewart Flash Cards” and it should be the first video to pop up. Enjoy!!!
