April 2021 Technique Squad Blog Hop – Hand-Drawn Blooms Stained Glass

Welcome to the April 2021 Technique Squad Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s technique is stained glass, which has a number of variations in how it can be done. I can’t wait to show you my project!

Before I get to the technique, this is the first card I’m sharing using the new 2021-2023 In Color Collection. I am just loving these colors, possibly especially having a shade of peach.

I really enjoyed the watercoloring I did with the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set the other day, so decided to use the same set again for the stained glass technique.

For the technique, I first stamped the two-part image from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set with Jet Black StazOn ink onto Vellum Cardstock. After the ink dried, I flipped the vellum over and colored the image with all five 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs.

I flipped the vellum back over and attached it to a piece of Basic White cardstock. I added a frame cut out with the third-largest of the Rectangle Stitched Dies from Soft Succulent cardstock. I added that to a base of Fresh Freesia cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment — also from the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set — was stamped with Polished Pink, then die cut from Basic White Thick cardstock using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I used a sponge dauber to add Pale Papaya ink to the edges of the sentiment label, then added the sentiment to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I finished the card with a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels, which are just lovely! You can find a button for the full product list below.
