Stained glass tutorial


  Today I am bringing a simple tutorial on how to create a “stained glass” card using velum and common stamping supplies!

First I will show you the end result so that you can have an idea of how this looks!




 

I chose Marks’ Finest papers and Stamps set “be virtuous”

Here are the supplies you will need:

  
 
 


 Stamps ;  Cardstock for the base;  designer paper  - look for papers with high contrast and an appropriate design for the stamp: vellum paper; pigment ink and embossing powder:  heat tool, sharp scissors for fussy cutting.

 

Stamp and emboss your images  on the velum:  Fussy cut the images

 

Arrange your fussy cut images over the designer paper; at this point I added a little distress ink to give the “stained glass” more pop.  After working the ink on the paper and then arranging the images over the inking I used ATG adhesive and glued them to the designer paper.  Next fussy cut these adhered layers.



 



Add highlights and embellishments as you like, for my card I used small background panels behind the stained glass panel, an extra layer of dry embossed paper, silver thread. 
 

   This is very simple and takes little time for these lovely results!!  Give it a try, you will be glad you did!!
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
