Many Mandala Birthday with Heat Embossing and Vellum

 Today we are going to play with vellum, heat embossing, ink blending and tone-on-tone stamping to create a fresh, delicate and graceful design.  The color combinations are endless and with the range of possibilities in embossing powders, design options are infinite.  I used the Many Mandala stamp and die sets by Concord & 9th to create the vellum medallion with Versamark and four different colors of embossing powder.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Trust His Word featuring Concord & 9th

 I was so excited and appreciative the first time I saw the Faith and Love set by Concord & 9th.  While more and more companies are producing more faith based sets now, it's been a long time coming.  With Bible Journaling rising in trend, it's having a ripple effect into cardmaking and I love it.  As I sit, writing this post and watching the myriad of colorful birds at my birdfeeder, I am again reminded of how creative God is.   I like to talk to God while I drive and often look up at the sky, so that was the initial inspiration for the design.   He is the center or focus of this card so I used "His" as the center stamp and placed the other words around it until I liked the composition.

The design for this card is simple; a few stenciled clouds and heat embossing with glitter embossing powder.  Keeping the background light and simple allows for the glitter powder to stand out and catch attention.  Any time you want to use a glitter embossing powder, I suggest you do that as your last step.  Anything you do over or on top of the glitter powder (obviously after it's been heat set) will end up removing some of your glitter.   Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock
My Favorite Things Wonky Stitches die
Concord & 9th Faith and Love stamp set
MISTI
Versamark
Wow Golden Flame embossing powder
Lawn Fawn Moonstone ink
Inky Antics Cloud stencil
