INLAID MANDALA - STAMPIN' UP! ARTISAN BLOG HOP

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan blog hop.  You may have just arrived from Miriam van Eyden's beautiful blog.  Her projects are always so inspirational!  If you are just starting here, hit the "Next" button at the end of this post to continue on the hop.


I am excited that we are featuring the Eastern Palace suite in a hop again!  Experience Eastern-inspired opulence yourself - plus get a free gift and three of the new 2017-2019 In Colours included in one of two exclusive bundles!   Click HERE to see and shop those bundles.


For this card I really wanted to feature the beautiful mix and match type style of the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies.  I have used the Inlaid Die Cut technique to make this bold Mandala card and I have made a video of the process I used to help you make your own! 




Being new to video's they need a little polishing but I hope you enjoyed it none-the-less.  Subscribe to my channel so you don't miss any!


I have used three new In Colours in the Mandala - Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Aren't they divine?!  I have gold embossed my sentiment just so I could use the beautiful Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers along the bottom of my card.  They look fab against the black, don't you think?


I used the same lovely colours and the Eastern Beauty stamp set on the inside of my card and also put another strip of the Vinyl stickers in there too.  I can't get enough of them!

Now it's time to pop on over to see what the divine Rochelle Blok has made for us!

  8. This is stunning! I have done inlays before--but on much bigger designs so when I saw your card I was really wowed. Thanks for the wonderful tips with the press & seal and the new adhesive sheets (I still have a stash from when we first carried it). Can't wait to try this--such infinite possibilities with this Eastern Palace bundle.
