Hello everyone! We have another guest today! yana-smakula-2014-Waffle-Flower-Card-2-3e I first found Yana's work in a card magazine about two years ago. I was playing with paper layering at that time and found her work interesting and are different every time. Then she joined a design team I was on and I started to get wowed by her stamped cards. Yana has a video for us today! You can find more of Yana's videos on her Youtube Channel here and her blog here! We love that she just plays and explores. Thanks Yana, for generously letting us upload your video to Waffle Flower Crafts Youtube Channel!

[Video] Christmas Cards by Yana Smakula

Hi everyone! Yana is here and today I will be sharing a few cards and a gift set idea with you using the new A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set. I originally planned to create one black and white snowy card, but after I started playing with this set I couldn't stop! I kept having more and more ideas and I wanted to test them all! I'm going to share 3 of them with you today.
yana-smakula-2014-Waffle-Flower-Card-2-2e I created a video tutorial to show how my main card was created. I also talk about other uses for this stamp set and show how you can easily turn a snowy heat embossed card into a modern looking one. And at the end I share an idea of a handmade gift using just the Homemade Christmas Set. Enjoy! You can watch the video here or on Waffle Flower Crafts Youtube Channel.
