Yippee for Yana: Pinecone Background Autumn Card
Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Follow along as special guest Yana Smakula! She has made A GORGEOUS Autumn themed card that you’ll definitely want to try making yourself! Read on and be sure to check out the video! Enjoy!
Hi everyone, this is Yana Smakula, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In this episode, I will show you how to create a colorful Autumn card featuring the emboss resist technique!
I started to work on my card by heat embossing a new Pinecone background stamp in Clear Detail embossing powder on white cardstock with the help of the MISTI stamping tool.
I picked Simon’s Fine Detail Clear embossing powder for my heat embossing as the Pinecones background stamp has a lot of intricate details to it and using a regular embossing powder will not do the trick as it will obliterate a lot of the details.
With the background embossed I added some color. Because we embossed this design in clear embossing powder on white cardstock the powder will resist the ink and will allow the white background show through. It’s a very old technique, yet still one of my favorites to use for quick and easy backgrounds.
I picked 4 colors of ink for my ink blending and I tried to go with a Fall color combination. The colors are Lipstick Red, Coral Reef, Green Apple and Sunshine.
I like to ink blend using Ranger Round Ink Blending tools and the Spellbinders foams. The Spellbinders foam is made from a different material, it resembles a makeup sponge so it applies and blends the ink much better. I added circles of color here and there on the panel slowing filling it in with color. The Pinecones background stamp is very versatile and I personally think it is a great design for Fall. When looking at this ink blended background I see lots of colorful fall leaves in the background represented by ink blended pops of color.
Next, I foam mounted the panel onto A2 white top folding card base, white heat embossed a sentiment – it reads “Welcome Autumn” and comes from the Autumn Greetings stamp set. I heat embossed it on Schoolhouse Red cardstock, I did so 3 times and trimmed to a skinny strip.
Using a ruler and the grid lines of my grid pad to align I foam mounted these strips onto my background.
Lastly, I decorated the card using sequins and clear droplets. Have fun stamping!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Yana for being our guest!
