Versatility of Mandala stamps and stencils

Hello, and welcome back to the Lisa Horton Craft blog, Claire Newcombe with you today.

Today I'm sharing with you my projects from each of my FB live events throughout the month of June so, plus the first look at a card scheduled for 23rd June.
Each of the projects in the photo above have been made with the June challenge theme in mind, and will be sent to the winner of June challenge which is 'SETS of THREE'

The theme can be interpreted in any way you choose, whether it be adding three elements on your project, or maybe making three ATC's, a set of three co-ordinating projects....your choice, have some fun with it.

There is another way in which all the projects made are linked, and that is that they all feature the fabulous Mandala collection of stamps and stencils....all of which are now available from Lisa's website

I wanted to create a selection of very different projects, demonstrating just how versatile the Mandala designs can be and how well they slot into Lisa's whole repertoire of products.


I have attached the Youtube links for the projects that I have already created, if you would like to make them yourself.

1. Facebook Live 2nd June (YouTube
I have created a set of three ATC's (artist trading cards) in a very feminine style. The mandala stencils feature in the background as a beautiful backdrop for the A5 Foliage stamps.
You will see on the middle card the mandala pattern has been clear embossed as a design feature. 


2. Facebook live 9th June (YouTube
These cards show the beauty of the Mandala stamps themselves, and the fun you can have colouring them.
But also how they can be used to create subtle backgrounds, when stamped with clear embossing ink onto coloured card for a tone on tone effect.


3. Facebook live 16th June (YouTube
The mandala stencils are layered here in the background with Lisa Hortons Woodgrain background stamp, and Mandala stamps highlighted with mica powder.
It is important to show that all products released into the Lisa Horton range will be able to mix and match with each other.


4. Facebook live scheduled for 23rd June
This project uses the mandala stencils in a more familiar way, layered up to show their beauty. I have used the circle stencils with. distress ink to create a background. The  'grungy' details have been added using Lisa's A6 Texture stamps.
I hope you can join me next week when i demo this on a FB live 

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope this has made you smile today.
Remember we have a lovely Facebook group where we'd love for you to share all your makes with Lisa products, I'll pop the link just here

Take care of yourselves x
