Simon Says Stamp | Simplistic Christmas Cards. Yippee For Yana Series. Video

Hello friends, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Lately I am all about simple and doable card making and also cards that feature very basic and beginner techniques. So for today’s video I have a simplistic Christmas card idea what features just some heat embossing and ink blending for stunning results.

CARD DETAILS

The card that I am sharing today is using just the sentiment stamps – “Joy, Love, Peace, Believe, Christmas” message that is shaped like a Christmas tree from the Christmas Wishes stamp set and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” from the Tiny Words Christmas set.

My idea here was to gold heat emboss these images using Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp on Green Leaf panel that’s cut to 4 1/2 by 5 1⁄2”.

Once my heat embossing was done I added ink blending to the edges of the panel to help embossing pop. I used Evergreen ink to blend darker green color around my heat embossed tree in the center of the panel. I want the edged to be darker and direct the eye of the recipient to the center of the card where the focal point is.

You can do this on white cardstock, but it is so much easier to blend this kind of look on colored paper. Because my paper already has color I don’t have to do additional blending and add a base color to it, a light green. If you were to heat emboss this on white and add ink blending on top, you’d have to start with the light green first to have that spotlight in the center where the heat embossed tree is.

To darken the edges even more I used Hero Arts Navy ink pad, this is very deep blue color and I added a bit of this color around the edges. You can also try using black.

I adhered my panel onto an A2 white side folding card base and dressed the tree up using some Clear Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. Less is more on cards like this. I hope you guys will give this idea a try. Have fun stamping!

    1. These are gorgeous Yana. Green is my fave colour (in any shade) and both of these cards are blended so beautifully that I am inspired to make something like this TODAY!

    1. Very elegant and beautiful clean and simple card! Love it!

    1. Gorgeous card! Simple yet elegant and impressive. Great colours and it’s blended so beautifully. The navy is the perfect touch as it adds depth and makes such an impact. Love it!!

    1. Love this card and how simple it is to make. It is very beautiful . ❤

    1. Yana – Question for you. I bought some of the sweet Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Jewels, based on this card. They are sweet, but the sparkle seems to be at its best when the jewels are not on their flat surface. Which, makes it kinda hard to glue onto a card. Which side did you glue down? And, if you had the sparkly side up, are the jewels going to be easy to knock off? Thanks in advance for your answer! Love your creative work!

      1. I agree, they are much sparklier on the wrong side. I glue them flat side down as yet, they would fall off easily if you glue them the other side up.

        1. Thanks, Yana! I made this card in shades of blue, and it turned out quite nice. Now, to bejewel it!

    1. I love this card. It’s simple, yet elegant. It’s beauty belies it’s simplicity to make. Thanks for sharing your talents.
