New Video: Creating a Window Pane

Yesterday, I shared a SPOOKY window to showcase some new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday Catalog.  If you missed that project, please check it out here.  Today, I’ve created a video to show you how I made the quick-and-easy window for that card.  Here’s my video:

As I stated in the video, this is a great way to make a quick-and-easy window frame, but you are really going to want to beautiful Thinlits (I think I called them Fr-f-thinlits in the video) when the Holiday Catalog is released – but this trick should get you through for the time being.  🙂

Yesterday I shared a sneak peek at the stamp set used in this project and promised to give you a better look at this paper.  I just love the patterns and colors in this Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper, don’t you?

I used the small stars for the project I shared with you(the paper is the left-most one in the above picture).  My favorite piece in this pack, though, is a paisley design with little ghost faces (the right-most paper in the above picture).  How cute is this?

And here’s another look at yesterday’s card – I’m showing you the envelope flap that’s also covered with the Basic Black and Very Vanilla stars piece of this Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper:

  1. I tried to look at your video, but it says it’s private? Haven’t had any trouble looking at them before. I’ll try again after work.

  2. Are the settings correct on the video? Says “private”.

  3. I had the same problem trying to access the video….said private.

  4. Have the same problem. Says the video is private.

  5. YIKES!!!!! The video is not showing Brian, I hope you can fix it, I really want to know how you did this window pane.

  6. Same here… private. I’m sure Brian will have it fixed in a jiffy.

  7. Funny I thought it was my iPad, looking forward to the video.

  8. I can’t view the video either.

  9. Diane and Priscilla are correct.. We cannot see the video. The message that immediately comes up when you click the arrow is: “This video is private.”

  10. Same here…thought it was a “Brian” joke, but t’s for real!

  11. Suzie Patt Cullen

    Whew! Glad it wasn’t just my phone!

  21. Lucky me, I got to see this great video. Pays to sleep in on Saturday. Love you wind technique, but can’t wait to get the Framelit too. Thanks.

  22. OMG, you are too funny! I loved sitting with you while you peruse the catalog, ha ha. Great tip for making a window…thanks.

  23. You are ever the jokester and the card is adorbs!
    TFS this wonderful little video !

  24. Thank you for fixing your video…you are sooo funny! Love your idea/tips/tricks for making this fab card…I think I will use your idea to create my windows! Big thank you!

  25. Ok, first you tease us about your video being “private” and now, you are teasing us further with “allowing us to sit with you” while you flip through it??!!! what the heck??!!!
    Ha!!! at least you fixed the video, I thought the glitch was on my end.
    Thank you for the tease my dear, and thank you for fixing the video so we can see it.

  26. Your video is laugh out loud funny! Great idea for making a window. Thanks.

  27. Thanks for fixing the video! I loved it. I REALLY learned a lot watching you flip through the catalog too. 😉

    I could see the video and had to pout a bit as you were going through the catalog. So not fair! I have to have two catalogs – one to drool on and turn the pages down and another to be able to actually look at without any marks and goobers so I can see the order # and the prices. Of course with Ted (Tactical Explosive Device) the basset hound, where no paper is safe around him, I almost need three copies!

    Love this card. So fun and I don’t even do Halloween but I might have to have a go at this using some older Halloween papers. Punching out those squares is really nifty and makes the window. Of course mine would have to have a little basset drool on the actual window section to go with my windows at home. The spider webs are a given at my house! I am rambling, I think I am tired. anyway, loved the card and the video!

  29. Brian, Brian, Brian – you are SUCH a tease! LOL Loved the mini tutorial……………………………..Hugs to you.

  30. Suzie Patt Cullen

    The video was worth the wait, Brian! You are such a day brightener! 🙂

  31. Another delightful vid! Can’t wait to receive my catty, thank you!

  32. What a fabulous card! Thank you so much for the video. I always enjoy your tips and tricks!

  33. Card – LOVE it!
    Video – You are such a stinker!

  35. Fabulous card and window technique! Very versatile! Can’t wait for August 4th!

  36. What a fun way to introduce the holiday catty! Love your videos, they are always quick and to the point, yet shows you exactly what do do!

  37. Thanks, Brian! Love the card and the video! I couldn’t see it, but didn’t want to post that, ’cause I thought it was just me. Thanks for letting us know, so we could come back and watch!

  38. You are so sooo funny! Love the card and great idea for the window.

  39. Brian, Thank you for sharing this technique. However, I am confused a little…did you punch the 1″ squares and place them on the black card stock, then punch again for placement reasons?

  40. That.Is.Genius! And you are hysterical! Thanks for the smiles and the tips!

  41. Now why didn’t I think of that. Thanks Brian and this idea could also be used for bigger windows using bigger square punches too. Once again many thanks for the idea.

  42. you are just to stinkin’ funny!! loved the video!!!

  43. I see a ring! Congratulations Brian.
