Stained Glass

Well, I've spent a lovely day crafting with my friends and have lots of projects to share .......... but that will have to wait until I take some photos (in the day light of course!).  So today I wanted to share a card I made using the Stained Glass (Vellum) technique.  I shared this technique back in April to the team of stampers I'm part of!

Put simply, this technique means embossing (we used Whisper White) onto Vellum.  Turn over and colour with markers.  Then turn over and admire the beautiful image you've created!

I also got the opportunity to play with the Secret Garden stamp set (love!) and while we handcut the flowers, this set comes with matching framelits.  Woohoo!!

Stained Glass Technique

You need: Outlined Stamp of choice, Vellum, Craft Ink or VersaMark, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Stampin’ Write Markers

Step 1: Rub the Embossing Buddy over vellum to keep embossing powder sticking to where it shouldn't!
Step 2: Ink stamp with Craft Ink or Versamark Ink.  Cover stamped image with Embossing Powder and tip off/shake off any excess.
Step 3: Using a Heat Tool, heat the Stampin’ Emboss Powder until it melts.
Step 4: Flip the stamped vellum over and colour the back of the image with markers. Let it dry.
Step 5: Turn the vellum over so the embossing side faces up. .

So here's what I used:
Stamp Sets: Secret Garden & The Nicest Things (retired)
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Night of Navy & Whisper White CS, Vellum CS
Inks: Whsiper White Craft Ink & Early Espresso
Markers: Regal Rose & Rose Red, Baja Breeze & Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder
Other: White Embossing Powder & Heat Tool
Big Shot: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Oval Framelits & Beautiful Wings sizzlit
