More Painted Glass

Painted Glass

Today I went back to the Painted Glass Stamp Set and coordinating Stained Glass Thinlits.  I love the bright cheerful color of the Pineapple Punch Cardstock.  The Stained Glass Thinlits are super beautiful and guess what?  I have a tip for you to ensure you have a nice clean, easy to cut Stained Glass piece!

I used my blendies on the roses.  I used both the light and dark Daffodil Delight blends to color in my rose.  Did you noticed I did not completely color in every little detail of the rose?  Yep, leaving some lighter/white spots creates the illusion of more texture and dimension.  Super easy, super fun coloring with my Blends!  I also added some color to my Pearls using my Blends.

Do you see the inset pieces of the die pieces were “left in” my die, adhered in the back with Scotch Tape then removed from the die.  I like the look.  I cut another piece of Pineapple Crush Cardstock using the Stitched Shaped Framelits to layer on the bottom, and finally popped both up on Dimensionals.  I used the Notecards & coordinating envelopes.

TIP: So I have a cool tip for you regarding these fabulous detailed dies.  If you cut the cardstock “upside down”, you won’t believe how much easier the pieces fall off!  So what do I mean by upside down?  Make your sandwich when cutting your pieces out like this:

  1. Magnetic or regular Big Shot Platform
  2. Clear Cutting Pad
  3. Die cutting side up
  4. Cardstock
  5. Clear Cutting Pad

Can you see the dimension from this photo?  Lastly I stamped a piece of Basic Black Cardstock, rubbed my Embossing Buddy on it, and then inked up my sentiment with some Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled some White Stampin’ Embossing Powder,  and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  This I simply added to my card with regular SNAIL Adhesive.

Thank you for visiting me today, and I hope I have inspired you to go create something beautiful and then send it on its way. For your shopping convenience, and because I truly appreciate you shopping with me, I have included all the products I used for you below.  But I also have a supply list you can download to use later.

Blessings, and until the next time, remember to hug the ones you love, none of us are promised tomorrow!
