Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Technique

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects created using a special crafting technique. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is.

I have chosen to create a project using the Stained Glass on Vellum technique.

Here is my card:

I decided on a yellow colour theme, so I have used Daffodil Delight & Whisper White cardstock for my card base.

Using Versamark on a sheet of vellum, I stamped my rose from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. I only inked up part of the large rose image as I didn't want to include the large leaf part of the stamp. I then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.

Then using my Stampin' Write markers, I coloured in the image on the reverse side of the vellum (so the side without the embossing powder). I went with Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight & So Saffron for my rose and Garden Green & Wild Wasabi for the leaf.

Using my Square Framelits, I cut out a window panel in my Daffodil Delight card front to adhere my vellum to. I then attached this to a Whisper White card base.

My sentiment, which is also Silver heat embossed, comes from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and is cut out using a tag from the Popcorn Box Thinlits set.

To finish off my card and include a little more bling, I added a couple of Silver sequins and some Silver Metallic Thread.

The end result, if you ask me, really looks like a stained glass rose. What do you think?

    1. Thanks so much Sue :) My Mum used to make stained glass windows, so I grew up with them and this image just has stained glass written all over it. And the Silver embossing, I feel makes it more realistic.
