Today I am sulking. I am wishing that I was sitting in sunny San Antonio, TX at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference. I know that I am where I am supposed to be right now, but I can’t help but feel like I’m missing out! I was planning on going this year, but my husband was unable to take off of work and watch the kiddos. So what do I do to feel better…STAMP of course!! Last night I was working on projects for my Incredible Cards Club and I was inspired by a beautiful card made by Lisa Young, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, using the Stained Glass Technique. After looking at her inspiration I came up with this card.
The technique on this card is hard to pick up on in a picture I know, but it’s stunning in real life. Basically you emboss on vellum, in this case I used white embossing powder, and color the image in on the back side of the vellum using markers. It gives this beautiful soft look of stained glass. I mounted my piece of vellum on whisper white card stock as well. The ribbon is gorgeous, isn’t it?! I am just loving the new pleated ribbon! The ruffles on the bottom of the card were made using the new edgelits dies. Since the technique is a softer look I went with Blushing Bride and Early Espresso for my main card colors. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my card today!
Happy Stamping, Kristin
