Today’s Technique Lover Challenge on Splitcoast is the Sparkly Stained Glass Technique. Holly was sweet enough to give me a heads up so I could create a video for the tutorial.

For my Stained Glass piece I stamped the Rose stamp from Flourishes Beauty Within in Black Stazon on Transparency Sheets. I used Glossy Accents and Martha Stewart Glitter (tourmaline, kunzite, peridot, feldspar) to color the acetate on the back. I placed the Acetate glitter down on white cardstock and cut the image with Label 11 Nestabilities. The image was adhered to a black piece of cardstock with dimensionals. The black cardstock was cut and embossed with the Spades Pendant.


The card base is a  4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of black cardstock folded in half. A black cardstock strip was cut and embossed with the Spades Borderabilities die and adhered under a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Webster’s Pages paper. The strips were stitched to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of another patterned paper piece from the Webster’s pages paper pack. Melissa Frances Lace was adhered over the edge of the horizontal strip, green silk ribbon was tied over that and the ribbon was topped with a button. The layers were attached to the card base with dimensionals.

The main images was adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals. A piece of black and white cardstock were cut and embossed with the Fancy Tag. The white piece was cut down to the oval. I stamped the sentiment from Beauty within on the oval with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and added the small rose over it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Latte Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card front.


For the inside of the card I cut and embossed another 4″ wide black strip with Spades Borderabilities and adhered it to a 1 3/4″ x 4″ wide strip of Webster’s Pages. The strip was stitched to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock.
