Truly Grateful – Video Tutorial

Stampin Up Truly GratefulStampin Up Truly Grateful Stamp SetToday’s fun fall card was designed using the Stampin’ Up! Truly Grateful stamp set along with the Tags 4 you.

My inspiration for this card comes from the cool mornings and comfortable days here in the Carolinas.  Yay!  It’s starting to feel like fall and fall is my favorite time of the year.   Therefore, I was excited to pull out my Fall stamp sets and colors and get started.

    Hi Brandy,

    I have been watching your videos and totally enjoy them. You are very creative and fun to watch. I have been thinking about becoming a demonstrator under you but I live here in Virginia. I am not sure if you do that. Also, I love some good bargains, what is the best way for me to get some discounts on the products. I would love to start building my stampin up collection.

    Thanks and look forward to your input.

    It sure lifted my spirit watching your video tutorial….it preoccupied my mind on other things rather than my ” feeling down and blue “….
    Thank you Brandy!

    Really pretty and fun to make! These are my Thanksgiving cards for this year. I don’t have the punch set so I cut a small framelit label shape with Cajun Craze card stock and stamped and embossed a pumpkin and tiny sentiment on it. Gives the same pop of color and adds that unique shape. Also subbed Really Rust and Crushed Curry inks.
    Can’t wait to see what Christmas cards you come up with.

  6. Julia Heitman October 29, 2013 at 10:45 pm #

    Wow Brandy, I totally love your site. I watched your video for the Thanksgiving Card and just had to make it. I just posted to my blog and gave you credit and added you to my “favorites”. What an inspiration you are! Thanks so much for sharing and for making the video. :o)

  7. Carol October 22, 2013 at 1:48 pm #

    Brandy, I just found you and watched your video on 10 cards in 20 minutes. Fantastic!! Then I came I clicked on your site and watched the Truly Grateful card video. Both cards were beautiful. I learned so much in just those two videos and they were very helpful to me. I am an older woman and often make cards for a widow’s group at church, so your assembly routine is going to be ever so helpful to me. Thank you for sharing and I am going to sign up for your newsletter after I find out come computer info. I did try to sign up but near the end it asked for html? or test and I didn’t know what to check, but as soon as I find out I will be able to sign up.

    May I say, you are an amazing young woman. A friendly, encouraging and very thorough with your teaching while at the same time creating a very relaxed atmosphere. What an accompolishment and what a help to those of us who are somewhat more uptight. Thank you so very much for your help and instruction. God bless you in your many roles, especially as wife and mother.


  8. Nancy October 18, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

    I just got done making the cards and love them. They are even better in person. Making more than one card is easy when you make an assembly line like you did. I Love Them

    I need some ideas for Valentine and Easter. Can you help?

    • Brandy Cox October 1, 2013 at 11:37 pm #

      Hi Libby,

      Wowsers!!!! I am still working on Christmas… tee hee. I’m a bit behind but I promise I will absolutely share some fun and festive V-day and Easter cards. Thank you for subscribing and for stopping by. Happy Stampin’! Brandy

  41. Libby Smith October 1, 2013 at 10:00 am #

    Great idea. Keep going with your ideas.

  42. Jean Buelow October 1, 2013 at 9:54 am #

    Hi Brandy, as always I’m impressed by your creative card and your joy in sharing. I thinks it’s great that you teach how to make backgrounds for yourself. Yes, DSP is nice but can be expansive for people. I wish you would do a card collection for birthday cards and cards of encouragement (for children & parents) who must be at St. Jude Hospital. These kids need to have something to cheer them and so do their parents. I know you have the media to be able to make something like this happen. I know that it’s a lot of work; but hey just an idea. Great teaching and continued good luck in your business as an SU demo. Again, thanks for sharing a great card. Jean

    • Brandy Cox October 1, 2013 at 11:40 pm #

      Hi Jean,

      Thank you so much for stopping by and for the kind email. I would love to help with a collection for the St. Jude Hospital. I currently make cards, host classes for the families and children at the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte, NC. Would you mind emailing me through my “Question” tab and let me know what your thinking. I’d love to help! Thank You!!! Sending Hugs and Blessings, Brandy

  43. Joanne Slee October 1, 2013 at 9:47 am #

    Inspiring! Love your work Brandy!

    Beautiful card Brandy. Love the colors!

  45. Bridget Trefethen October 1, 2013 at 5:21 am #

    I always look forward to your videos! I love your cards! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talents.

    Your comment about having to tell the whole story when you are answering a question sound so much like me! I laughed at that!

    I have a question about “World Card Making Day.” I saw it mentioned on a different blog, but I don’t totally understand it. Also, you were talking about sending a card that day. I guess that is where my question comes. The card(s) made that day, are they supposed to be “Thank You” cards? I have a set of “Thank You” cards to make for a friend who is getting married, but I also have “Thank You” cards I need to make for sending. Could you explain the goal of “World Card Making Day?”


    Congratulations on making the Founder’s Circle and getting to go on that fantastic retreat! I think it would be so cool to see how they make the stamps! Your pictures look like you had a great time!

    • Brandy Cox October 1, 2013 at 11:44 pm #

      Hi Bridget,

      Thank you so much for subscribing and for your great comment. Lol!!! Yep, I can’t just answer the question… I have to tell the whole drawn out story and then get to yes or no. Lol!!! My husband laughs at me 😉

      Yes, World Card Making Day is Oct. 5th. I would love for you to Upload any card you’d like to share. I am really looking forward to seeing the beautiful creations of my fellow crafting friends. I’m excited to randomly draw a couple of names and send The Best of Autumn stamp sets. Yay!!! I love to share and give back.

      Thank you for the Congrats on Founders Circle. It was a dream come true for me… I still need someone to pinch me. Please join us Oct. 5th and let me know if you have any troubles. Ok. There will be a link tool at the post of the post Oct. 5th.

      Have a great night!
