Hi friends! Please join me in welcoming back the oh-so-talented and amazing Yana Smakula! (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!
I’m creating with the Simon Says Stamp Blissful Bouquet stamp set to make a Birthday Card. It’s been a long time since I’ve stamped a custom floral pattern so I thought it was time I re-visited this amazing technique.
This stamp set features beautiful flowers, along with different types of foliage, some flower buds, and more – lots of great elements to create a floral arrangement, a bouquet, or just dress up your handmade card with some pretty flowers.
Because I’ll be stamping an overlapping pattern, meaning the elements will overlap, I need to create some masks for my images. I used to hate doing making, I didn’t like having to cut the masks out, but I’ve grown to love this technique, it is very easy, yet it lets you do so much more with your stamps. I stamped several of the images, some were stamped twice, and cut them out using scissors.
Next, I grabbed my mini MISTI stamping tool and started to create the pattern on Neenah Solar White cardstock. Watch my video for the step-by-step how-to.
With the stamping done, I colored the image using Copic markers. I did simple flick-style coloring.
- Pink: RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10
- Orange: YR07, YR04, YR00
- Peach: E02, E00, E000
- Green: G99, G94, YG03
- Red: R39, R24, R05, R20.
- The background was colored using OLO BG 7.3.
Next, I stamped the sentiment using the Elegantly Modern Greetings stamp set. I stamped the large Birthday in black ink and cut that out using a coordinating die and next added a small “wished for you”. Finally, I added a touch of sequins to dress up my card.
Have fun stamping!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks again to Yana for being our guest!
