Simon Says Stamp | Soak Up Some Summer! Yippee For Yana Series. Video

Hello friends, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Today I’m using some new and old supplies to create colorful summer vacation cards!

I had this idea to stamp the word “pool” and arrange little summer items around it to create a mini scene for my card. I didn’t have the stamps that would best work as summer/vacation items so I kept putting this idea off and off until I came across Simon’s new Surf’s Up stamp set. The size of palm tree, umbrella, beach towel and other items in this set was simply perfect for the idea I had in mind.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

As always, I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel:

CARDS DETAILS

I started to work on my card by stamping the word “Pool” using letters from the Stitched Alphabet stamp set, it’s one of my favorite alphabet sets. The letters here are open here and therefore can be colored and made into any color you need. I used Simon’s Intense Black ink for my stamping as this ink is perfect to work with Alcohol markers and I colored everything with Copics. I overlapped my letters to form a word “Pool” and I also stamped one more word “Summer”, I used it to make another card.

I admit, these words will are mostly secondary on my projects, they are covered for the most part, especially the word “Pool”, so the recipient won’t be able to read it much, but I still wanted to have those words on my cards as a little backdrop.

Next, I stamped several palm trees, beach umbrellas, beach towels, surf boards, a seagull and little kids sand bucket, I colored them and cut out with the help of coordinating dies in my Spellbinders Platinum die cutting machine.

I used the following Copic markers for my coloring:

  • B02, B00 and B000 to color “Pool” and “Summer”
  • YG67, YG17 and YG25
  • C3 and C1
  • E79, E37 and E33
  • RV14, RV13 and RV11

I cut the words “Pool” and “Summer” using my Tonic Scissors. Next, I ink blended backgrounds for my cards. I used Maliblue, Duckling and Sunshine for the Pool card and Deep Sea, Malibue and Duckling for the “Summer” card.

I foam mounted “Pool” and “Summer‘ in place and next filled in and set the scene using little colored and die cut pieces. I stamped “Enjoy Your Summer” and “Enjoy Your Vacation” sentiments, added a few butterfly kisses sequins and that finished my cards!
