  1. STUNNING cards, BEAUTIFUL design, VIBRANT colour and EXCITING technique!!!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing … I didn’t know that I could use watercolour pencils or Copic markers on Kraft, looking forward to trying it NOW :)

  2. These are beautiful, Yana! I’m too afraid to try my Copics with embossing, but the watercolor looks lovely.

  3. Kraft paper has not been too appealing to me until I saw your video with the lovely poinsettia stamp, the two together gives the card such a natural and organic feel to it!

  4. This stamp set is great – love the white design on the kraft paper and your pretty coloring. Thanks for video !

  5. I loved Yana’s video and her beautiful but simple colour combo of red white and kraft. I liked her demo of both Copic and watercolour pencils, and the step-by-step process, including how her ideas for the cards evolved. The outline stamps are lovely, too.
