Yippee for Yana

Hello friends, this is Yana and welcome back to another Yippee For Yana video! Today I’m sharing yet another card for Summer! I can’t help it, I’m loving these cards lately and I constantly feel inspired by all the new and fabulous products from Simon.

Yippee for Yana: Vacation Time

I started to make this project by picking out a few images from the Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set and also a palm tree image from the older Warm Christmas Wishes stamp set and stamping them in Simon’s Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock.
I used my Copic markers and did some quick coloring. I used the following colors:
● YG67, YG17, YG03
● E79, E37, E33, E31
● R89, R39, R27, R24, R20
● C9, C7, C5

I cut my images out with the help of coordinating dies. The idea for this card was to imitate a pool by using colored cardstock and place various elements around it coming in from the edges of the card. I used Sea Glass cardstock for the background panel and cut it to 4 ¼ x 5 ½”, next I cut white panel and Audrey panel slightly smaller to actually form the pool area.

This card idea can be stepped up is so many ways. You could add some stamping to the Sea Glass panel to imitate tile, like the tile you’d have next to the pool, and even do some coloring to make it more realistic. You can also add some wet-looking detail to the pool by completely coating it with glossy accents.

I heat embossed Vacation Time sentiment onto the Audrey Blue panel and adhered it onto the white panel and next onto Sea Glass. Next, I foam mounted my elements in place and trimmed the excess off using scissors. I wanted this card to look as if the person was looking at the pool from the above.

To mimic water in the pool I used bubble images from the Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set and stamped a bunch in Scuba ink in between my foam mounted die cuts. Next, I added a skinny strip sentiment that reads “you make everything infinitely more fun” stamped it in black
ink.

I used a white pen and added highlight details to most of my images. Next, I grabbed my Glossy accents and also later Nuvo drops in Morning Dew and coated stamped bubbles with them, I also coated the sunglasses on my puppy and later the entire flamingo float.

Have fun stamping!

  1. Great border around the bear. My cards seem so flat sometimes. I’ll have to experiment making more use all 4 sides.

  2. This is SO CUTE, Yana!!! LOVE how you created the water background & all of the little details. All those palm trees & umbrella’s just bring your eye inward to the fun little critter in the flamingo floaty! SO CUTE!!! ;) NO WONDER you wanted to play with this set!! ;)

  3. Such a fun and cute card! Thanks for the inspiration Yana! I love the effect of the bubbles you achieved. TFS

  5. That smart little puppy in the floating could not be more adorable…. I am keeping my eye on that set!!

  6. What a super fun and summery card!!! The more I see these images the more I fall in love with them, Especially the dog in the flamingo float!!

  7. Oh, my! I almost missed this! And it’s cute, cute, cute! Like the looking-down perspective.

  8. I love this adorable card. Great style, gorgeous colors. I agree the white gel pen highlights make things “pop.” Great card, Yana.

  9. So many small details on this one that I did’t really notice most of them at first glance. But boy when I started reading and “looked” for them it was amazing. Great job, this one is so much fun I can’t wait to try it :)

  10. I love this cute card, of course anything Yana does is perfection!! I love the colors and the Nuvo Morning Dew drops set it off completely!
