Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – New Painted Glass
Hi stamping friends, today’s share is another sneak peek at a new bundle/suite coming June 1st called Painted Glass.
As a former Stained Glass artist, I was VERY excited to see this suite of products in the new catalogue (page 164 and 165). The grace and elegance of the stamp set, coupled with the very detailed Thinlits makes card making a breeze. A lot easier than making the real thing let me tell you, ha-ha.
An added bonus – part of the suite is this STUNNING Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum.
Grab your Stampin Blends, and colour in the vellum for an amazing stained glass effect on your cards.
I took a different route for today’s card by using the coordinating thinlits to create an inlaid stained glass window as my backdrop for my card.
and my card works for the Case this Sketch challenge for this week too.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the New Painted Glass Inlaid Technique card:
- I started by cutting the half circle at the top, then carefully cutting the two long skinny panels side by side. You have to be super careful not to lose any of the pieces.
- The panel is 3-7/8 x 5-1/8, and I cut two of them. Once I did the die cutting, I glued the outside piece to the second piece giving me a base to glue the little pieces back in.
- I then mounted it to a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic Black to frame it before attaching it to my 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2 card base.
- The butterflies are stamped on a 2 x 5 piece of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured with my Stampin Blends, Daffodil Delight and Pink Pirouette before die cutting them out with the framelit.
- For the sentiment, I grabbed a scrap of Basic Black and White Heat Embossed the sentiment before cutting the piece down to 1-1/8th wide.
Then I slid it from the inside, into the Everyday Label Punch so I could create the banner. The finished size is 1-1/8 x 3. I think the shape coordinates perfectly with the “old world” font of the sentiments.
I added a couple of Clear Rhinestones to either end and some Black Solid Baker’s Twine.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and thanks so much for stopping in to visit.
Wishing you Happy Stamping.
