Designer Cuts: Stained Glass Anniversary Card

Good Day Stampers!


Here's a fun technique called the "Stain Glass Technique."  I did not invent this technique, Patty Bennett, a fellow stamper did a tutorial on it. I couldn't pass it up and had to share this with everyone at my last class This is an easy  technique and the results really are magnificent. See if you agree?

Stampin' Up! Designer Cuts Stained Glass Technique


The wonderful part of this card is it comes pre-cut with that beautifully intricate design. The Designer Cuts (125414) comes with Eight Cards in two different designs and Eight Blushing Bride Envelopes. This is featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog.


To make this card you'll need:


A 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Vellum Paper (101839)

Markers (119806)

Basic Pearls (119249)

And whatever stamp set you want to relay your sentiment.  I used the Stampin' Up! Something to Celebrate Stamp Set (121897) and Baja Breeze Ink (119668).

Adhere your piece of vellum to the inside of the front over the heart cut Stampin' Up! Designer Cuts Stained Glass Techniqueout and begin coloring. For the coloring you don't even have to stay inside the lines!


This is the inside.

When you look at the card from the front the cut outs makes it seem like you colored it perfectly!


On the inside, over the Vellum, adhere a 5-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock


Add some Basic Pearls or Rhinestones and any sentiment you want; or not.


Have fun with this technique and remember to get your Sale-A-Bration order in, because there's only 5 days left, until it's over! 


I'm placing an order on Saturday, March 31. If you'd like to add your order to mine EMAIL ME.

Up in the Air: Pretty-in-Pink Card

Hi, Stampers!


Here's the other card I promised you made with the Stampin' Up Hostess Set, Up in the Air. Today's card, is similar to yesterday's card's fussy style, but uses a totally different color scheme.

Stampin' Up! Up in the Air


1.  To make this card, cut:

Pretty-in-Pink Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and score it at 4-1/4"

Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper at 5" x 3-3/4"


2.  Run a piece of Whisper White Card Stock through the BIG Shot and the Ovals Die. Cut the largest oval.


3.  On the Whisper White oval, stamp the branch image with the birdhouse, with Chocolate Chip Ink.  With your Watercolor Pencils, color the image in.


4.  Stamp the bird and butterfly from the Elementary Elegance Stamp Set and distress the oval edge with a Sponge Dauber with Pool Party Ink.


5.  Once the image is colored, wrap the oval with Blushing Bride Pleated Ribbon. I found it easy to get an even gather by using the stitched part of the ribbon as a guide. Working from the back, this is what I lined up with the edge of the oval. You can use Glue Dots, Tombow Glue or Sticky Strip Tape to adhere the ribbon.


6.  Layer the Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper on the card front.


7.  Cut another piece of the Blushing Bride Pleated Ribbon and adhere it along the right hand side of the card.


8.  With Dimensionals place the oval as shown.


9.  Make a pretty bow out of Pretty-in-Pink Taffeta Ribbon and adhere it to the upper left hand corner with a Glue Dot.


10.  Take the flower from the Itty-Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and punch out three flowers.  Adhere them randomly along the branch..


11.  Place Basic Pearls on the birdhouse and in the center of each flower.
