Stained Glass Windows

I suppose considering the number of cathedrals we've visited with incredible stained glass windows that this technique is quite appropriate for me to be sharing with you all. :-)

Here is a card made using the sticker things for those awesome pens. I know I've seen these in the states...they come on sheets with very intricate designs - although I chose a pretty simple one. And I believe they are all laser cut.

The photo is not so great color wise, as the pink scalloped piece is Pink Passion, but you get the idea. I colored my stained glass piece and after it was dry, mounted it inside the pink passion scalloped square with a square cut out. Then, I put the black behind. Then I just took a piece of Lovely Lavendar cardstock and stamped some doodles from Doodle This (because it's new rubber!!) which white craft ink, and poppped the stained glass piece up on dimensionals. All in all, a very simple, quick card once you have the inner squares cut out. Maybe I do need a mega square punch!


PS Dinner last night was amazing!!! It was actually an 11th century castle, and I ordered a house special steak cooked on hot stone. The brought me a large hunk of raw beef, and a VERY hot stone on which they then cooked it for me at our table. Perfect for a carnivore like me!!! I'm LOVING Barcelona! I promise to update the family blog this next week when I get back and can sort through my 1000+ photos from the last 3 weeks!!!

  7. Sorry, I am afraid that I must say that 30-something years ago I celebrated Jana's most amazing b'day after she finally popped out of you know where on a snowy day. Totally one of the best presents to get on an April 15th. Did our job with Julia so we must fly back to Florida tomorrow. Will miss them both so very much. Love, MoM

    So let's see if I can talk her out of that beautiful card for my b'day!!!???
