My Favorite Things–August New Product Launch!

Well, hello!!

Print

The time has finally come for the August New Product Launch!!  Are you as excited as I am?!!  I have one more project to share with you!!  It features the new Captivating Mandala Die-Namics and the From All of Us Stamp Set.

KKL_AUG0718-NPL-(2)

The new Captivating Mandala products (Captivating Mandala Die-Namics, Captivating Mandala Stencil, and Captivating Mandala Background Stamp) just turn my crank!!  Their delicate, mystical aura speak to me, and they really are super versatile, as they work great as a focal image, background, or as a means to accent other images.  In my project here, I used the Captivating Mandala Die-Namics die cut from Black Licorice card stock as the focal point of my card.  I blended some distress inks onto the card base and used the Captivating Mandala Die-Namics again to die cut the image from the center of a Smooth White image panel.  I adhered a piece of acetate behind the aperture, and adhered the black die cut to the acetate with some liquid adhesive.  I adhered the image panel to the card base using foam squares.  I stamped the sentiment from the From All of Us Stamp Set onto an ink blended scrap using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and die cut it using the Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-Namics.  I layered it onto another slanted sentiment strip that I die cut from some Black & White Striped Pattern Paper, and adhered the stacked sentiment to the image panel using more foam squares.  I adhered some black jewels as embellishments to the image panel, which I think really accentuate the focal image.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.  And all of this month’s new products can be purchased now by clicking on the graphic below.
