Card 2 of 4 from the Painted Glass

Card 2 of 4 from the Painted Glass 

I decided I was going to make my own Graceful Glass Designer Series Paper, so to speak. I used a piece of our Cardstock Vellum, and inked up the stamps from the Painted Glass Stamp Set with some Memento Black Ink.  Be careful to use a steady hand as the Vellum is a little bit slippery, so not moving and shaking. 

I used my Stampin’ Blends (my new Stampin’ Blends should be here next week and I so can’t wait for them to arrive) to color in the images.  I used Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Old Olive Blends, kept it pretty simple.

I plan to use this technique of created my own stained glass images with lots of my Stampin’ Up Stamps!  We have such a variety, the possibilities are literally endless!

I used the same two die pieces as my previous card I shared yesterday.   As you can see from the photo above, I left a small gap between the two pieces this time to created a “window” type affect.  What do you think?

Stampin’ Up makes it super easy when you use the right tools, just some cardstock, Big Shot, Stained Glass Thinlit Dies and you are good to go.

Well, thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and I hope I have inspired you to go create something beautiful and send it on it’s way.  I have included all the products I used on this card below for your shopping convenience because I so appreciate your business. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please, please, please do not hesitate to contact me directly, and I will get back with you just as quickly as I can.

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

    You are going to get tired of me, an I’m sorry! I was wondering how you die cut your frames and was able to put them back into your card? I didn’t see where you might havre explained it. So, if I missed it, I’m sorry! I’m also looking for how you framed your shutters? All four of your cards are beautiful! I have everything but, the Black embossing powder. I thought I’d pick some up at a craft store while I order mine. Again, Thank you for sharing with us!

    • Gloria Sperring, I will absolutely not get tired of your questions my friend. I used the Stained Glass Thinlits dies to cut out both the top and bottom window on the card. Once you cut them you will be left with the negative outer piece of cardstock. I added my “Vellum piece to the back of the negative piece, and then I then removed the die cut piece from the die, added some Tombow Liquid glue to the back of the pieces and added them “back into” the negative piece. On card number 3 of 4 I created the shutters from the exact same Stained Glass Thinlits dies, and adhered the shutters to my Pinewood Plans Embossed Whisper White Panel. I used the square die from the Stained Glass Thinlits set to create the center bottom panel for the window, and then using some Mono Liquid Glue I adhered the “shutters” to the window as shown in my sample. Hope this helps!!
