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!
In this video I’m creating a Christmas Card, this project is very easy to make, easy to copy, and easy to mass produce. The card features a stylish Clean and Simple design with a lot of drama achieved with the help of colored cardstock.
I’m using a new stamp set from Simon – Fresh Air Holiday Tree and it is gorgeous! It is a layering set and I’m a huge fan of sets like this, especially when they are done well and believe me when I say, this one is done exceptionally well. This brushstroke Christmas tree design is stunning.
To create this card I first used the coordinating die and die cut a tree from white cardstock. Next, I used the die cut as a guide to align the layers and stamp them in Pine, Sage, and Field inks. I added a garland layer using Antique Gold embossing powder (there’s also an option to add snow, and you can even combine both options if you want).
I heat embossed one of the longer sentiments at the bottom of the Soft Navy cardstock panel and added ink blending with Simon’s Royal and Tsukineko Onyx Black inks from the top and foam mounted a Christmas Tree die cut in the center. Love the result!
Have fun stamping!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks again to Yana for being our guest!
