You Get The Best Of Both Worlds

Do you know that Hannah Montana song 'You Get The Best Of Both Worlds' ??? Of course you do! Well, based on the poll I decided to do today's tutorial from two angles. Today's post includes a mini-tutorial on measuring with the SU Word Window plus a Copic Video Tutorial. I think the video format is much better for explaining copic use, but simpler techniques are easier to digest by picture format :)

I used the same card for both tutorials. It is also, actually, a submission for the GinaK release sketch challenge. I love this SEI paper! The colors are so retro and fun. The Horse Stamp is from My Favorite Things Stamps, I LOVE this company!!!! The designs are so simple and fun to color, the simple line drawings and playful sentiments are great. How fun is this Punny Farm Set ?!?

So, now my mini-tutorial! The SU Window Word punch is my absolute favorite punch. Many companies produce stamps to fit it, including MFT. In order to make sure that I make the box long enough, I measure the stamp set this way. It really helps me visualize how much room I want on each side and also if I have to make it any longer.

And, of course as promised, today's Copic Video Tutorial!
