My New Collection with Spellbinders – Yana’s Blooms | Video

Hello, crafters. I’m very excited to introduce my new collection with Spellbinders called Yana’s Blooms. The collection is launching today and you can find it in the Spellbinders online shop and also at many retailers online, I have direct links in the Supply List below.

I designed this collection with elegant Spring Birthday card making in mind. I give a lot of Birthday cards and my friends and family always ask me to make and give them some birthday cards for them to gift to their friends, thus I never have any on hand and this is the one type of card I need the most.

This collection includes 7 products, 5 of them – hot foil glimmer plates and 2 – dies.

COLLECTION OVERVIEW

Watch the video below or on my Youtube channel – you can still watch it on Youtube.

MAGNOLIA BLOOMS DIE SET

Magnolia is the design around the entire collection. I have this design in die form and also in a form of 2 different glimmer plates. The die is the largest giving you a pretty big magnolia cluster for your cards. All of these products are designed for A2 card making, but they can be used for other card sizes. You can adapt them to other sizes if you want.

The Magnolia Blooms die set has 2 pieces – a detail one to cut the magnolia detail and outline, and also a shadow die. You can do several techniques with this die, including paper piecing or dry embossing to add color to your magnolia.

Here are a few additional card examples created using this die to show you various uses & color options:

MAGNOLIA GLIMMER BLOOMS GLIMMER & DIE SET

This same design is available in glimmer form, but slightly smaller, it is the Magnolia Glimmer Blooms. Still large enough to take a center stage on a card, this includes a magnolia cluster glimmer plate and a coordinating die to cut the entire cluster out.

This is a mostly outline design with solid leaves. You can color it, or leave it free from coloring, either way, it looks stunning. Here are a few examples:

It also looks amazing foiled in black on black cardstock for a very dramatic look:

MAGNOLIA BOUQUET GLIMMER & DIE SET

There’s also a 3rd magnolia set, called Magnolia Bouquet. This one features separate images – flowers and leaves. These are glimmer plates with coordinating dies. The idea behind this set is to allow you to build your own clusters or to add additional imagery to the Magnolia Blooms cluster. The designs are exactly the same, but the size is again, slightly smaller.

You can use these magnolia blooms to create a floral focal point for your card or you can use just a single flower or a single leaf as an accent.

YANA’S LAYERED SCRIPT SENTIMENTS

I designed 2 sentiment sets – one is a die set called Yana’s Layered Script Sentiments and there’s also a hot foil sentiment set called Splatter Sentiments. In the die set, you have 3 large word dies – Happy, Birthday, and Thanks. Each die has a detail and shadow layer. The shadow layer looks especially beautiful when die cut from vellum, it gives a very soft look.

SPLATTER SENTIMENTS

The shadow layer dies from the Yana’s Layered Script Sentiments coordinates with the glimmer sentiments from the Splatter Sentiment glimmer set. The size is the same and you can use the shadow die to cut out a foiled sentiment. We didn’t do the foiled “Happy” in that script font, but we did include a small “happy” plate. You also have additional small words to foil “Birthday Wishes”, “On Your Birthday”, or “Happy Birthday”. The Thanks also has supportive words and you have 2 options – “Thanks for your friendship” and “Thanks for your support”. Of course, you can also pair these with sentiments you already have in your stash.

Also works well with my previously released Yana’s Tiny Sentiments

The Splatter Sentiments set also includes a thick frame for A2 cards and 3 splatter elements. I love the look of splatter on my cards, but I can never create perfect splatter, I either overdo it with the splattering or don’t splatter enough. With these glimmer plates, you can add just the right amount of splatter to your project.

GEO FOLIAGE

Next is the Geo Foliage glimmer and coordinating die set. This set features a large geometric frame shape and coordinating dies to cut out either a frame or a label. And this shape coordinates with the diamond shape from my previous collection. You can layer the 2 shapes to create a new shape.

This set also includes 2 tear plates – a longer and shorter one. These are quite unique and I can’t wait to see how you’ll use them on your cards.

We had some space left when designing this set, so I filled it with additional foliage. This time the foliage is slightly larger and it is solid. It looks amazing when foiled in Matte Gold. And the foliage pieces all have coordinating dies.

DIAGONAL GLIMMER STRIPES

And the last, but not least, is a new background plate, the Diagonal Glimmer Stripes plate. This one might look familiar as it is very similar to the Skinny Stripe background plate released in my previous collection. The thickness of the stripes is the same here, but the directionality is different as these stripes are diagonal. Perfect for clean and simple card making and looks amazing when foiled in Opal foil on colored cardstock – it gives a tone-on-tone look.

      1. No, I don’t think they are. They would have had one by now. You can get these individually. Thank you – I’m so glad you like this collection!

    1. It was so nice to see you on Create and Craft yesterday, but I do wish you’d had more on screen time. Hopefully as things improve with Covid you can come over and demonstrate. It would be so lovely to have you here again. Love the simple Thanks card that you created too. It’s so elegant. It’s a fabulous bundle. Had to have it all as there nothing I wouldn’t want to use and I can’t wait for mine to arrive. Thank you Yana ❤️

    1. Hi Yana, I bought your complete collection on Create and Craft yesterday, It is so beautiful cannnot wait to use it on my cards. Thank you so much for bringing them xx

      1. yay! This makes me so happy, Lesley. Thank you! More inspiration to come and I’d love to see how you use it – please tag me if you share on social. thank you!

    1. These products are are amazing. They are just lovely and love the different ways you can use them. Thank you for designing such beautiful pieces and for all the tips and techniques you give on how to achieve the best foiling results. It has helped me tremendously.

    1. As usual, another outstanding collection from you and I have them all. I’ve been following you quietly for many years. Last I knew you had moved back home to Ternopil. I see from the map that is west side, but even so, with Russia on the borders, I was concerned. Just want to know how you are doing.

    1. I really LOVE this collection and ordered all the elements. On your blog, you have a card with the scripty word “Birthday” in black and there is a background that looks like gold puckered ribbon in a diagonal pattern. Is that some kind of washi tape or an embossing folder, or something else? It’s beautiful!!
