Yippee for Yana: Sea Party Birthday

Hello friends, this is Yana and welcome back to another Yippee For Yana video! I love the Beachy Waves background stamp from Simon’s Recent release and I’ve been wanting to use it for some cards. I’m going to show you how you can use just a portion of the background and extend it cover the front of an A2 or even bigger card.

I’m using Simon’s Dye inks in delicious Summer colors – High Dive, Audrey Blue and Maliblue colors; these are just the most perfect shades of blue and are oh so so awesome for Summer stamping or ink blending. I have a serious crush on the Maliblue color – I’ve been using it a ton this Summer.

The trick here is to stamp the portion of the Beach Waves background (the waves portion) onto separate pieces of paper multiple times and piece each portion together with the others to create a continuous background for a card.

I want my background to have a gradient to it, the bottom portion of my waves is going to be darkest, and the top – lightest so I’m using multiple shades of blue when inking the stamp for each portion. Starting with High Dive and Audrey Blue for the bottom, Audrey Blue and Maliblue for the middle and Maliblue for the top.

To simplify this you can totally ink up one section with High Dive, one using Audrey Blue and one using Maliblue.

To help me piece these layers together I used scissors and cut along the wave lines. At first, I wanted to make an A2 card, but later seeing how I had a ton of background space I decide to make a taller card. I am always inspired by Kristina Werner and how she makes these super fun tall cards and I decided to give one a try. My card ended up being 4 1/4 wide by 7 3/4” tall.

Next, I stamped critters from Under The Sea Animals stamp set. I used Simon’s Intense Black ink and stamped 2 of each – crab, fish, and starfish. I used Copic markers in R39, R24, R22, Y35, Y15, and Y11 to do the simple coloring. Later, I added white pen details to crab and starfish.

I also need a sentiment and for this, I white heat embossed “Party” from Cathy’s Birthday Palooza stamp set. I used Sunshine and Hollyhock inks from Simon for some emboss resist ink bleeding. Using coordinating dies I cut these out and arranged on my card with the help of foam adhesive. I also stamped “It’s Your Birthday” and foam mounted it under the “Party”. Lastly, I used my Tonic Studio shimmer pen and coated my entire background with this shimmer.

Have fun stamping!

Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to Yana for being our guest!

  1. I love the background on this and it’s perfect as a slim-line card! Sea themes are among my favorites for card making!

  2. What a creative use of this background stamp. Like, too, that you made it taller. Seems to go well with the idea of a deep blue sea. I mostly make A2 cards but occasionally do different sizes just for a change of pace. I like that the slimline cards are becoming so popular. Thanks for sharing this fun card and helpful video!
