Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Yana Smakula to our blog! (Please note; our dear friend Yana is Ukrainian, to show support to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine, please see Yana’s post HERE.)
Hello, crafters, this is Yana Smakula for Simon Says stamp! Welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In this video, I’m doing some happy colorful stamping to boost my mood and I encourage you to do the same!
I am using the Waves Builder stamp set to create a colorful background for my card. I love this stamp because each section is separate allowing me to stamp it in a different color of ink without the need to do any masking. Easy-peasy!
I also have my MISTI stamping tool and a white Simon Says Stamp 130lb cardstock panel, I love this paper for stamping, it is super thick and smooth and always gives me perfect stamped results. I am using a selection of Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks going from purple, to pink, to orange and yellow.
I stamped my colorful background from the bottom up, aligning each section separately and stamping each in its own color of ink: Amethyst, Taffy, Sweets, Bubblegum, Peachy, Cantaloupe, Citrine, and Sunbeam.
Next, I trimmed the background to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and next, I cut a section out using my scissors. Cutting a stamped section out gave me a blank space to do my stamping.
Next, I pulled images from the On The Horizon stamp set and stamped them onto the card base and overlapping the top part of my colorful background.
With the stamping done I foam-mounted the stamped colorful panels and embellished my card using white sequins. I opted to go with white sequins here as I already have quite a lot of color on the card.
Have fun stamping!
