Yippee for Yana: Faceted Stencil
Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in
Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In this episode, I will show you how to create a modern one-layer greeting card using Simon’s new Faceted Stripes Stencil.
I started with a piece of sea glass cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2” to make the front of my card. I attached the stencil over it masking a part of it. I wanted to use the upper portion of the stencil and reserve the bottom portion of the panel for a pretty sentiment. I used washi tape from my stash to attach and mask stencil.
Once you’ve masked off the areas you want to preserve it’s time to apply the product over the stencil to create a background. Truth be told there are so many different products on the market these days – you can create any sort of background you can possibly imagine. I am going with a rather simple and basic look here and using Modeling paste as a base and glitter embossing powder as a topcoat.
First I applied a generous amount of Modeling paste in white from the Crafters Workshop – I love this product, it is a pleasure to work with when combined with stencils. Next, I carefully removed the stencil (and washed it immediately).
To add the glitter topcoat I used Hero Arts Gold Glitter embossing powder. This is a wonderful product – think gorgeous gold embossing powder and lots of pretty gold glitter added to the mix.
The powder sticks nicely to the wet paste and you don’t even need to use embossing ink here. The next step is to heat set the design.
Often it’s best to wait for the paste to dry on its own as it can bubble up, this paste seems to react okay to the heat. If you use a different product and don’t want it to bubble up, set your background aside to dry naturally and then, once the paste, is dry use your heat tool to melt the powder.
With the background done we need to add a sentiment. For this, I combined messages from Greetings Mix 1 and Tiny Words Encouragement sets to create a sentiment that reads: “You Are Everything Wonderful. There’s no one quite like you”. I stamped both plus a little heart in black ink.
After adhering this panel to A2 white side folding card base I added sequins from the Star Spangled set to decorate the card.
Here’s another take on the same idea but using a different product to make a background – this was done using Tonic Studios Nuvo Mousse in Honeydew color.
I hope you will give this idea a try. If you do make a card inspired by this video, we’d love it if you shared your project and tagged us on social media – we love seeing what you make!
Have fun stamping!

These are so pretty, Yana! You’ve inspired me to give a similar design a try using my Nuvo glitter paste in Moonstone. Thank you!
Gold and silver are perfect for this stencil. Thanks for showing us…

So gorgeous, Yana!
Beautiful cards! I didn’t know you could emboss on a wet medium. I always learn something new in your videos. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration!
These cards are so beautiful and festive! I really love the one with the glitter gold one. It looks amazing!
Love working with stencils and these cards are gorgeous!
Super fun and cool cards! Love the contemporary designs and great techniques with stencils.
Such a beautiful and classy looking card. Thanks for sharing it with us.
That’s a lot of glitter, and it looks great!
Such totally different looks with the different colors and different products. Love ’em both❣️ TFS❣️
Always so pretty.
Your cards turned out great. I will have to try embossing powder with paste. Learned something new today!
These are gorgeous and very elegant with the embossing.
I struggled to imagine what that stencil would do for a card. Holy cow! Beautiful!
Beautiful cards. I love that gold glitter embossing powder. I’ve actually tried this technique a couple of times but the texture paste always “bubbled.” Thanks for the tip on letting the paste dry before heating the embossing powder; I’ll be trying that soon.
I love stencils and you Yana, made such great cards with this one. Thank you so much for showing and have a great week.
So pretty. Love the creative use of the stencil.
Such gorgeous cards!
Thanks for sharing…
Your cards are very beautiful! Masking off the stencil certainly makes it more versatile – thanks for the idea!
Your work with the stencil is amazing, Yana. The sentiments you’ve used really speak to my heart! Guess they need to go on my wish list!
Very cool. Yana always has the best ideas. I already follow by email.
Lovely stencil work, Yana. tfs
