NaBloPoMo Day 7: “Stained Glass” Ornament Card

Here’s a third card with the Stained Glass technique. (Go back to yesterday’s post and the day before if you haven’t seen the 2 others!)

I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (still available!!!) to stamp my Christmas ornament (in Cherry Cobbler) and I cut it with the coordinating Ornament framelits. To create this unique look of a stained glass part in the center, I stamped the “inside circle” in Versamark on Vellum card stock and heat embossed with Pewter embossing powder. I then color the back of the Vellum with Stampin’ markers (Real Red and Garden Green).  I punched a 1″ Circle in the ornament and placed on top of the Vellum.

NaBloPoMo Day 6: Stained Glass Poinsettia

Did you like my Stained Glass technique I showed you yesterday?  I hope you did!!! For today’s card, I used the same technique. I stamped my poinsettia (from the Joyful Christmas set) with Versamark on Vellum and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then colored it with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Markers.

I used the Deco Label Framelits collection to cut an opening in a Cherry Cobbler rectangle cardstock. I then embossed it with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. I adhered it on top of the Vellum and placed a Whisper White cardstock behind. The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock.

NaBloPoMo Day 5: Stained Glass Technique on Vellum

Today’s post is a cool technique that you can do with Vellum. It’s called “Stained Glass Technique.” Here’s how to do it:

Stamp you image with Versamark and cover with Pewter embossing powder. Heat with the heating tool until powder melts. Then use Markers to color the image. It gives the illusion of Stained Glass. (You can also color on the back of the vellum for softer colors.)  For this card, I used the stamp from “Delicate Doilies” set. I colored the vellum with Real Red, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ markers.

To finish the card, I used a Real Red card base and ran it through the Big Shot with the “Delicate Designs” embossing folder. I used a square of Whisper White cardstock and punched a 2-1/2″ Circle in the center. I adhere it on top of the Vellum. Then I cut a 3″ square in the Silver Foil sheet and mounted the Vellum on top.  The greeting is from “Joyful Christmas”. I added a small rhinestone in the center of the “Stained glass”.

Come back tomorrow for another card with this fabulous technique!
