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?
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. Please click to leave a COMMENT HERE.
