I have been having a Marvelous time making stacked Mandelas with the new Mandela Set from DezinesByEM. Mike Fernholz is the artist of this set and the Mandela Set can be purchased at Anthony’sPaperCraft on line or at a show! I love this set. These are my 2 finished cards and they are STUNNING in person.
To create the sets, I stamped the 4 pieces of the set in various ways – and was very happy with them all. I stamped with Gina K Designs Obsidian Amalgam ink on heavy white card stock so I could color with Alcohol Markers (Studio 71). I stamped more sets using the colors of Versafine Clair inks and embossed with Wow Clear Embossing Powder.
I then took the same colors (yellow, red, blue and deep purple) from my GinaKDesigns card stock and embossed with Judikins Egyptian Gold powder – but any gold tinsel embossing powder will work. Every one of these was fussy cut, but they are very easy to cut and it didn’t take long at all.
The main photo shows all the focal pieces and embellishments I made and cannot wait to finish the cards. On some I only used 2 or 3 of the pieces and have some great embellishments for later.
There are several other sets also in this release – check them out! I will be posting with the Bee Set tomorrow.
I picked up these stamp sets at Stampaway this last weekend. I had such a wonderful time, and bought a few things (LOL).
Keep on Stamping! Hugs – Mary Kay
