Stamp Focus: Pen Sketch Mandala

by Sandra Dietrich

Projects with Pen Sketch Mandala @SandraDietrich for @Altenew

Welcome to a new Stamp Focus post featuring the Pen Sketch Mandala Stamp Set and two of Altenew‘s new Enamel Pins.  It’s me, Sandra. And I’m sharing three paper crafting projects: two gift tags and an 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook layout.

Project 1 | Gift tag with Enamel Pin & Pen Sketch Mandala

Making your gifts special is now even easier with the new and cute enamel pins from Altenew’s May Release 2019. Use them on gift tags to add a special something that will make people happy and smile.

HOW TO: First, cut a tag from a patterned paper from Altenew and add a pocket at the bottom. Second, insert a smaller gift tag cut from white cardstock. Next, stamp a sentiment onto the white cardstock tag. Finally, set an eyelet at the top. And then add some (star) sequins to make your gift tag shine.

Project 2 | Gift tag on a card

HOW TO: Cut a gift tag with a pocket from patterned paper. Next, attach a Butterfly Acetate Die Cut and an enamel pin onto the gift tag. Then stamp two sentiments as shown in the picture below. Now set an eyelet at the top, and add a piece of baker’s twine. Glue down the decorated tag onto a white cardstock pocket. You can use a hole punch to add a notch at the top of the pocket. Finally, give a finishing touch by adding three enamel dots.

Project 3 | Scrapbook Layout with Pen Sketch Mandala

The final project I would like to share with you is an 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook layout with a white cardstock base. I stamped several mandalas onto the cardstock background. Then I added a photo with a circular centerpiece to go along with the circular design of the mandalas. Finally, I added stamped sentiments and enamel dots to decorate the layout. I think the layout is really stylish with its clean and simple look and focus on a black-and-white design.

Awesome tags, never thought of making a tag and put it on a card.
I love your stunning scrapbook lay out Sandra, the white page, the awesome mandala stamp, sentiment and enamel dots in black and the hint of colour of the photo.
Thank you so much for showing these gorgeous inspirational projects.

The tags are nice, but the layout is AWESOME! I love all of the mandalas and their placement. Keeping it black and white with the color only coming from the picture, really grabs your attention.
