Yippee for Yana: Vacation Time
Hi friends! Welcome to the latest edition of Yippee for Yana with the always inspiring Yana Smakula! Read on and don’t miss the video for the full tutorial and enjoy!
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.
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
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!
