CandyCaneLane_blogsized So exciting right?  Have you caught the sneak peek in the graphic above?

stained-glass-technique-with-white-embossing-on-vellum-3_e If you’ve never tried the Stained Glass Technique…it’s an easy and forgiving technique for those that do not consider themselves amazing colorists!  (amazing colorists, you’re not left out of this one because you can ROCK this technique, too!)

All you need is some Vellum Cardstock, White Embossing Powder, a line art stamp set and markers. Water based or alcohol based markers will work!

Stained Glass Technique with White Embossing on Vellum

How about this layout?  It’s ridiculously versatile and you know, I think I’m going to CASE it with the upcoming Candy Cane Lane SOA Collection!  Remember those candy canes from the other day? How perfect would they be on this layout?

stained-glass-technique-with-white-embossing-on-vellum How to make this card:

Stamp the flowers from the Enchanted Garden Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on 5-1/2 x 2-1/2 Vellum Cardstock, pour white embossing powder over it and heat.

Turn the vellum to the backside and color.

Adhere the vellum to the cardstock base.  Stamp sentiment from the Girfriend Stamp Set on the 1 x 5-1/2 bottom layer.  Add a 1-3/4 x 5-1/2 layer on the top portion of the card.

Die cut the Enchanted Butterfly from white cardstock, color over it with the Spectrum Sparkle Pen and adhere to card front.

Add sequins and your gorgeous card is ready to make someone’s day!


Here are all the supplies you need to make this card!

Thank you for being here today…it’s going to be a fun and exciting week!

    I did the same card, but used the heart leaves stamp from the set to stamp in green behind the vellum piece. It came out pretty good.
