Hi everyone, this is Yana Smakula, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In this episode, I’ll show you how to combine images from different stamp sets to create a beautiful stamped pattern. I’ll also show you how you can make the colors pop on your card by simply changing the color of the background.
You’ll need the following products to make this card: Look For the Rainbows stamp set or any other stamp set with large outline flowers and leaves; we will use these images to build the background floral pattern. Another set we will need is the Beautiful Butterflies. Or again, any other set with large outline butterflies. We will also need masking paper as we will be doing quite a bit of masking to create the background. Of course, you’ll need a good pair of scissors you are comfortable using to cut the masks out. I like to use Spring-Cut scissors from Tonic Studios. You will also need an ink pad that works with your coloring medium of choice. I will be coloring today’s background with Copic markers and so I picked Simon’s Intense Black ink pad as this ink is Copic Marker friendly. Lastly, you’ll need a coloring medium. I prefer Copic markers these days, so this is the medium I’ll be using.
Be sure to watch my video tutorial to learn how to stamp this pattern and also for tips regarding Copic coloring and heat embossing.
I used the following Copic marker colors:
G21, YG63, G94 to color leaves
YR18, YR14, Y38, Y15, Y08 to color flowers
E79, E37, E33 to color flower centers
C9 to color the background
B97, B34 to color the butterflies
C5, C7 to create the butterfly shadows
I added a simple Sending Happy Thoughts sentiment to this card, this comes from Simon’s All Things Happy Sentiment strips. I also trimmed my panel down just slightly and adhered to the A2 white side folding card base.
I quite like the way it turned out, but I’m curious if you like it as well. Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and to Yana for being our guest!
