Today, we are featuring two brand new stamp sets.  The first set is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger and is called Men of Faith.  This is a companion set to the previously released Women of Faith set.  The second set is illustrated by Rina Krupsky and is called the Mandala Maker.  This is Rina's first set and it's AMAZING!  Congratulations Rina!!

-----------------------------------------

My first card features Melanie's NEW Men of Faith stamp set.  This set is full of possibilites and can be combined with so many sets in your collection.  For my sentiment I combined it with the "happy" from her Pressed Flowers set to create this fun masculine design.  The dies I used are from her Fabulous Label and Fabulous Rose Frame die sets.  I love using CAS designs for masculine cards and the new 2018 colors were the perfect punch for this card.
 

My next card features Rina's Mandala Maker stamp set.  This set is so fun and can be used by itself or with the Wreath Builder Template.  I went for a fun kaleidoscope look after being inspired from Jennifer McGuire video last week using this set.  You can find her video HERE.  I didn't have a T ruler but found that the "L" piece in the Misti Corners worked.  I used a combination of GKD Amalgam Black and Tranquil Teal to create a fun monochromatic design.  I did do a little coloring with a Turquoise Prisma color pencil.  I love the fun design and paired it with a sentiment from Melanie's new Men of Faith set.
 
Enjoy all the fabulous inspiration as you hop and make sure to comment as you go for a chance to WIN!
