Studio Katia | Happy Mandala Flower & Blooming Together | Guest Designer

Hi all! Crystal here with a special post for Studio Katia

I am super excited to be guest designing with Katia and the team. Her stamps are GORGEOUS and with so many possibilities.  I spent a very happy day coloring this card.

This card was super fun to make as it took stamping the mandala, then coloring each with Copic markers. 

Then, I heat embossed the "happy" onto vellum. Trimmed and adhered to the card base with foam tape. 

On black cardstock, I added the "you make me" and heat embossed that on white.

To finish off, I added the super fun Iridescent Crystal Mix facing up.

There is glitter Nuvo on the white areas on the actual mandala.

And it the whole thing made me quite happy. Now, this is not the end of the projects for me. Next up is a watercolor wonder, using the Together We Bloom stamp set and the Dotted Patterns: Fancy Square creative dies. 

Now for this c, rd I relied heavily on my heat embossing gun! I stamped the florals from Together We Bloom on to heavy watercolor paper, and heat embossed in white. Using my watercolors, I dabbed the paint on to the florals. 

The sentiment is then heat embossed on to the scallopped frame and embellished with Crystal Rainbow Confetti

This card turned out quite bright and happy. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
