For this video hop I did a tutorial on the new Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°. If you’re new to the Stencils 360° I strongly encourage you to watch this video (besides our Intro video) as it covers a lot of the basics of the tool. This Mandalas Bundle is super versatile as you can mix and match the stencils in the set to create numerous beautiful designs. Here’s a look at my cards!
For my first card, I layered one of the 8” stencil with the 6” transparent stencil in the set. The large stencil was rotated at 45 deg intervals (simply jumping along the scale of triangles). The word ‘Bravo’ was from the Congratulations stamp set.
For my second card, I used basically the same ink colors from Catherine Pooler but this time on a different 8” stencil. I paired it with another 4” transparent stencil for finishing the design in the center. The sentiment ‘Sending Warm Hugs’ is from Unity and Friendship Quotes. I really love how these couple of cards turned out with the rainbow hue!
For my next card I used the third 8” stencil from the set and rotated it at 45deg intervals. I applied different colors on each of the element on the stencil to easily create this multi-colors look without having to do any masking. I white heat embossed the scripty ‘Thank You’ (from So Blessed) on our Grand Piano Heavyweight Premium cardstock. I used Teal Sapphire for my back panel and added some cardstock strips diagonally to add more interest to my card.
Next I used the 6” stencil from the set and rotated it at 30 deg intervals (jumping from circle to circle). I then stencilled on some some glacier paste on a 4” clear stencil for the extra shine. I die cut a slightly larger circle in Grape Macaron and inlay that into a square panel of Navy Blazer Heavyweight Premium cardstock on which I die cut the same size circle. The sentiment is from the So Blessed stamp set.
Lastly for this circular card, I used the same 6” stencil (as the above example) but rotated it at 22.5deg (jumping from heart to heart). Notice how this pattern looks fuller than the last one? This is what happens when you decrease the turning interval for inking. This gorgeous sentiment is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.
I also added a stamped floral image from So Blessed on the inside of my card!
