Hello friends the STAMPtember® is here! YAAAAY! I think it's like Christmas, the best time of the year and I am so excited to join the STAMPtember® Blog Party! :) The Simon Says Stamp blog prepared for you lots of fun! They post everyday exclusive collaborations, contests, prizes, special promotions, announcements and more surprises! So be sure to check their blog! ;)
Today I am showing you two cards with the new STAMPtember® Nature Mandala 6x6 Cling Stamp, hope you will love them! You can find the used supplies below.
I started my first card with stamping. I used the Nature Mandala Background Stamp with Versafine Onyx black ink. The next step was the coloring with Derwent Inktense Pencils. First I made the shadows with black pencil then colored with random colors. When it was done, I made ink blending around the mandala but I also blended a little the edges of it to achieve a little darker and shady effect. I used the Black Soot and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks.
The next step was heat embossing. I stamped the sentiments from You + Me stamp set with Versamark Watermark Ink, then heat embossed with Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder. As a final touch I made some dots and highlight with the Signo Uniball white pigment ink pen. I know It's a little time consuming, but it was sooo relaxing like coloring books. :)
For my second card I also used these two stamps, but I made an absolutely different card with them. First I made ink blending with Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Thubled Glass Distress Oxide Inks.
When it was done I made heat embossing with Nature Mandala Background stamp and Altenew Antique gold embossing powder. I wanted to add more sparkle to my card, so I used Nuvo - Moon Stone glimmer paste on the left side around the pattern.
I stamped the sentiment from You + Me stamp set with Versamark watermark ink, to the Embossable Acetate, then heat embossed with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. Finally adhered to my card with some embellishing and my super shiny card was ready! :)
I hope you enjoyed my post, I love this background stamp so much, and I have a couple more ideas. If you don't want to miss my next inspirations follow me on Instagram.
