Guest Designer: Yana Smakula

by Tasnim


We have an amazing guest designer with us today. The first time I saw her work, I knew I had just discovered a gem! Her unique style at design has never ceased to impress me. Let's get some inspiration form Yana today :)


If you are looking for some last minute Holiday stamping ideas I've got a few of those to share with you today.
Each of the 3 cards I have here took me less than 5 minutes to make! All you need for these is a stamp, two colors of ink and a tiny bit of patterned paper. Embellish these with a few black gems and you are all set!




If you are over the Holiday cardmaking madness and are looking for non holiday projects I've got one of those as well. My Best Friends card features the oh so beautiful Painted Poppy stamp which I used to create a background for a simple one layer card.



thank you for inviting me to be a guest! Its always a pleasure to work with your stamps.

Well, aren't these cards simply fabulous?! I love a design that is quick and easy to execute. Thank you Yana for designing these beautiful cards!
