Hello, crafters. Welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Today I invite you to join me as I do some unexpected coloring featuring the Dreamy Leaves stamp set. As I was planning my card, I went to Pinterest in search of inspiration and came across this stunning image. I loved the way the leaf was colored – it wasn’t solid green, yet it had sections of green and sections of white. It looked so clever! So I applied this coloring method to the leaves on the cards I’m sharing today. Like this project? Pin it and save for later | Curious about my project photography? Click for det ..read more

Hello, crafters. Welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! I’m creating cards with the Flower Block stamp set in this video. This set is genius. We all have floral stamp sets in our stash, but probably none that allow us to create a colorful background all while creating beautiful flowers. This stamp set does. Yes, this set makes a small colorful block, it can be the focal point, but it doesn’t cover the full background. To cover the full card background (A2 card that is) one would need to stamp it about 6 times. Like this project? Pin it and save for later | Curious about my ..read more
