A Wonderful Day with Angela

Hi there Angela here using the fabulous Concord & 9th stamp set and matching dies.  I love this company, they have a great range, go and check out the shop ♥
Today I have used the new Many Mandala set and a little bit of old... vellum and embossing.
I wanted to add a sentiment, but I didn't know where I wanted it, so I repeat stamped the sentiment in a light ink so not to overpower the focal point.






*Trim black cardstock 12cm x 18cm and fold in half
*trim Neenah white cardstock 12 cm x 8.7cm 
*using a small acrylic block ink up sentiment with Hickory Smoke and stamp repeatedly along the whole card
* Using the Many Mandalas die, die cut along the bottom right as shown in sample.
* stamp and emboss the small matching stamp ( that fits inside the die) and emboss with silver embossing powder.
* Emboss the smaller shape and die cut.
*Adhere the vellum along the inside to match up behind the die cut shape on the front.
*using the pop dots adhere the smaller shape to the middle and finish with a silver enamel dot 
*Adhere to black base card.

9x12 Scrapbook Layout "Hello" + process video by Louise - using Kaisercraft DayDreamer collection

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Hello"


I just adore the pastel patterns and colours of this Kaisercraft "Daydreamer" collection.
I've decided to make a 9x12 layout.


I've prepared my background papers and added a coat of gesso.
Once dry, I've used the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons to smudge around the background.


Final elements on this page are stamping, cotton and stickers.

You can pick up all the elements to re-create this page from



This layout comes with a process video too.
