Today’s card is a sneak peek at the Painted Glass Bundle.

I received my second Stampin’ Up! pre-order yesterday, and it had the dies I accidentally omitted from my first order. I couldn’t wait to try the Stained Glass Dies! I was delightfully surprised at how easy they were to cut. I used the tip from the Stampin’ Up! video, to place the die with the cutting side up, and it worked really well. See the beautiful, intricate pattern?

Stained Glass Birthday Card

 

Once I had my three Basic Black window pieces, I chose to highlight them on a Thick Whisper White card base. To add texture, I added a top layer, which I ran through the Big Shot using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder. It doesn’t show well in the first picture, but you can see it here:

 

The Painted Glass Stamp Set includes this adorable, little, stained glass bird. I wanted to add pop to my black and white, and red is the perfect color for that. It’s also a color I wanted to use because of this week’s Tic Tac Toe challenge. Can you see I chose “spring-red-die cut?”

 

Stampin’ Blends were used for coloring the bird. 

 

There are several great sentiments in this stamp set, and I chose “Have a beautiful birthday” for this spring time card. The little bird found its perch on the “B.”

 

I used  the square Stitched Shapes Die for cutting the sentiment, turning it around to make the rectangle. For a touch more red, I added some Baker’s Twine. I think the bird frayed the ends, trying to get some twine to make a nest.

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of the Painted Glass Bundle. I think it’s going to be one of my favorites. I’d love to hear what you think.
