Hello, everyone!

I just got back from a business trip and I got an exciting news (maybe some of you already know)!!!!

I am VERY excited to showcase Concord&9th April Release as April Guest Designer! You would not believe how excited and happy I am to join one of my favorite stamp company as a guest designer. I will be showing more cards throughout the month from April release so stay tuned 🙂

For today, I used the Many Mandalas stamp set to create two gorgeous thank you card. When I first saw the stamp set, patterned background came to my mind.

Green-3

I filled the entire card using the stamp to create a gorgeous background. I wanted the pattern to really show up so I choose Timber Green cardstock and gold embossing powder. When embossing such large image, make sure to avoid heating up the cardstock too much. I usually like to stamp a portion of an image with Versamark, spread embossing powder, repeat until cardstock is filled and use a heat tool to melt everything away at once.

Green-4

For the sentiment to show up on top of the bold background pattern, I used black cardstock and vellum. I used the many mandalas coordinating die to tie in with the background.

Green-2

I like the green cardstock but you can use any dark cardstock to re-create this card 🙂

For the second card, I used the same technique to create a similar but very different card.

Red-1

This time, I choose red cardstock and heat embossed using rose gold embossing powder. Then, I trimmed one side to v-shape using the scalloped edge die from Select-A-Size Edge Dies set.

Red-3

For the base layer, I wanted to give subtle tone-on-tone effect. So I used fog dye ink to lightly stamp the same pattern onto kraft cardstock.

To finish the card, I heat embossed sentiment from a Give Thanks stamp set.

Red-2

Which of the two do you like more?

I hope you enjoyed these cards showcasing Concord&9th Many Mandalas. Stay tuned for next card 🙂
