1. What was name/date of post that had the surprise opening inside? Was a Valentine card.

      1. Hello, looking over each of the children die cuts from Spellbinders (your latest youtube) there was one I couldn’t find. You did two in the pink hombre, one was three little girls, one with her arms up in the air. Spellbinders website doesn’t have it nor Amazon. Is this one you already had maybe ??? Thank you, Leslie

      1. Hi, I’m new here. Can you direct me to your post for beginners and what copics to buy?

    1. Hi Yana,
      I was wondering where I can buy or find the copic fish coloring chart. I thought it would be on Simon Says Stamp, but I can’t seem to find it.
      Thanks so much! I am a huge fan of your designs.

      1. hey, Jane! I made the chart myself. I used a fish stamp from the Birthday Fishes stamp set from Simon and stamped mine. You can make it using any other easy to color image.
        And sorry I am just now replying – I just saw your question.

    1. Hello Ayana my name is Dolores, I am from California. Let me star saying that you are AMAZING x 10000…. and beyond I love all your cards. You have such and exquisite taste, elegant, unique and more. I truly really admire you. Hopefully I can meet some day.
      Quedtion. Can’t i use Spellbinder dies with the Gemini?

      1. hey Dolores! thank you!
        Unfortunately I don’t know what Gemini is, my advice would be to contact Spellbinders customer service and aks them or check your machine compatibility chart. Sorry I am not of much help here.

      1. Hello Delores, I have a Gemini Die cutting and Embossing machine from Crafter’s Companion. I have used my Spellbinders dies with it. The only ones that you can’t use with it are super thick dies and the Steel Rule dies (the ones with felt on them). Hope this helps.

    1. Hey Yana, I love your cards. I check daily to see what you have posted. I am trying to case one of your masculine birthday cards. It is the water color birthday cake card from last August. It is an alphabet background with cake and fedora. Did you make a video? What is/was your card size? did you use the Hero arts bold alphabet stamp set?

    1. Hi! I am trying to find out where you posted the $30 Altenew gift code from the July release blog hop and can’t find it anywhere! Can you point me in the right direction? My fingers are tightly crossed! Thank you!

    1. Hi Yana: I’m trying to order the Monthly Hero October 2017 through you but I can’t get to the Hero Arts website, I tried different ways but I only get a blank window. any idea if they’re having troubles with the website?

    1. How did you make the color swatch, I mean the piece of paper where it has the “Color name”,”Brand” “O” opacity ” T ” transparency “ST” ????

      Did you make the swatch or you bought them? Where did you purchase them ?

    1. Hi Yana, I am a card maker in Canada and am interested in the Spellbinders Platinum machine. I am curious which machine you use the most – the large one or the 6″ one? Thanks!!

    1. Hello Yana,

      I am coming to Phoenix December 5-12. Do you have any suggestions on some great crafty places I should visit? I am visiting my family but I will have times when they are all at work and school, so I can go exploring.

    1. Yana, thank you so much for this GREAT INFORMATION on Coloring Mediums. It is excellent. Also, thank you so much for your thorough and beautifully shot videos. They are very inspirational. And, finally, thank you for coming to America, joining our country of immigrants, and enriching our culture. You enhance my artistic vision daily.

    1. Hello, Yana!
      I colored my stamped images with Staedtler pencils and the Versa Mark did not stick… is there something I am doing wrong? Does the weight of the paper matter? Does the brand of pencil matter? Do you have any suggestions? Thank you so much for your help.

    1. Hi!
      I am in search of an image that says, “There’s SNOW place like home for the holidays” and I came across the card you created on December 9th. My family photographer cancelled at the last minute and so I am late in the game and have to expedite my card process because Christimas is coming! I won’t have time to make it with your stamps and other materials. I usually use images I find online and create my own card in photoshop.Can I have your permission to use the image for my personal Christmas Card? I could give you credit at the bottom if you’d like.
      Thanks for making the world even more beautiful!

    1. Could you share some of your favorite polychromo combinations? After seeing your posts using them on dark cardstock, I am hooked!! Thanks!

    1. Yana, I’m having major problems with embossing. What am I doing wrong ? I have a Papermania heat gun, which I let heat up till its really hot, I use Neenah solar card or MFT card, I am using powders from Dovecraft , WOW or Lawn Fawn. So there are no cheap products but my powders just don’t melt like yours, mine look like glitter at the end. Help me please.

    1. Morning,

      What water paper do you use, for markers etc.
      i wish i could show picture you a picture. I’m really new and really trying, it’s just not working .
      Trying to do st Patrick day cards.

    1. Hi Yana, I saw your video of your craft room in Ukraine .Could you help me with light settings of your video . They are really good

    1. Hi Yana. Glad your move went w/o a hitch. I’ve been a subscriber to your channel for a while and love your vids on Spellbinders Dies. Is it possible for you to do a tutorial on an old Becca Feeken set of bow helpers and closures dies? I bought this set a long time ago but there are no instructions or videos on how to use them. I’ve enquired and have searched and there is no help around. Was just hoping perhaps you can help. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Yana, I can’t find your copic marker chart you talked about in the JOY christmas card you made.
      Please let me know.
      Thank you,

    1. Yana, I’m a seasoned stamper but had lots of problems getting this stamp to print totally. Used Stamping Platform, used just a block, tried plate from Big Shot, different tables…nothing. Finally filled in missing spots by hand. Called and left message with Simon Says, waiting to hear back.

    1. I love your cards all are so creative. I’m trying to make the tri fold card with the new die, but can’t figure out how you made the hills on the inside

    1. I love your cards and your videos on YouTube! I am a subscriber to the Spellbinders small due of month club and always look forward to your ideas on how to use the dies. I subscribed to your blog to enter your giveaway…and I have subscribed to your Youtube channel as well…thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Yana, I just love your cards, especially those you do for Spellbinders. Will you posting any new ideas for Spellbinders soon?


    1. Hi there Yana, before I ask my question, I do want you to know that I love all of your videos and projects, and thank you very much for being an excellent and thorough teacher.
      I found you several years ago when looking at Spellbinders videos, and later Altenew. I wondered if there were going to be any more videos from those companies, or similar? Although I like your other presentations they are not often my style, even though I still get some ideas from them.
      Thank you

    1. Yana I noticed you used Sakura white gel pens. Can you tell me if they will work on Dur-a-lar which is a clear plastic. I tried splatter paint and it left too big of splatters. Just wondering if the gel pens would work and if they would dry on it. Any help is welcomed. Thank you .

    1. Hello Yana, I see you used a color palette type thing to store your die cut pieces before you assemble them on the card. I have seen you use that before too. It seems like a very useful product to store die cuts, category wise before assembly. Could you please provide me the name of the product and where can I get it? Thanks.

    1. Thank you for all of your great videos. I learned how to copic blend from you and will be trying the new no blend technique. Loved the bold birds

    1. How do you make drop with Nuvo Jewel Drops Sea Breeze? Mine come out so so and I love yours. What is the secret?

    1. Yana – your cards are always so beautiful and the placement of your gems, dots and sequins, as well as the combination of those items, always compliments the cards perfectly. Have you ever done a video on how to accent cards with embellishments? If not, you need to do one.

    1. HI Yana,
      wonderful cards!! you put so much thought and personal touch in your cards, it gives me inspiration. I was going to try your die cutting with craft foam and you use a double sided white tape. Can you tell me what kind it is please?

    1. Love your cards and miss getting emails from You Tube letting me know when you have posted. Hopefully they will go back to sending reminders. I have a question about embossing 3 D folders on my large platinum die cutter. I have tried using the tan mat, but my machine keeps eating up. Any suggestions?

    1. I love watching your foiling techniques with foiling plates. So inspiring! Do you know if you can run the laminating plates through a laminating machine?

    1. Hi Yana –

      I have been trying to email you a question for a while now and your lectrodectus account is not receiving emails.

      Could you provide me with a working email address to which I can send my question?

      Hope you and yours are well and stay safe,

    1. I was going back through the Anita Jeram Hop because the cuteness is OVERWHELMING :). Was your winner announced somewhere? I couldn’t find it on the original blog post and I am subscribed to your blog so I see all the new awesomeness you create.

    1. Thank you so much for the galaxy video. I was not happy with anything I was doing. Everything you make is beautiful. Thank you for all your videos.

    1. I love these 3D folders. I have a question. I am new to card making. Why did you heat emboss the greeting? Does this have to be done if I plan on using white cardstock?

    1. Hi from Minnesota, USA! Your Copic combinations really work well together. Do you have a suggestion for your favorite combinations? I need all the help I can get! Thanks VERY much!
