Good Morning, Glory

Hello, Judy Woodland here, and welcome to another Dies R Us inspirational blog post. Today I have a unique technique for you using the Tutti Designs Poppies Stained Glass die, which reminds me of Morning Glories. I recently watched Jennifer McGuire do a stained glass technique which I thought was FABULOUS. You can watch it HERE.

Here is my card:

Here's how I made it:
Using Ken Oliver's Stick It, I began by cutting out 5 panels from the Tutti Designs Poppies Stained Glass die.

Next I adhered one panel to a piece of card stock..............

and colored the images in using my Copic Markers.
 Then I adhered 3 more of the die cut panels to create dimension.........

and flooded every space with Glossy Accents. Whew!!! Talk about labor intensive!! 
I let this dry overnight.

I took the last die cut panel and applied 2 coats of Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.......

and adhered it to the dried piece to complete the stained glass look.

Finally I die cut the panel from the Sue Wilson Austrian Collection Background die........

and a little border from the Poppy Stamps Pierced Borders Die Set.

Finally it was time to put it all together.

Here are the products I used:

  4. YOWZA! This is beyond gorgeous! Actually looks like one of your beautiful stained glass pieces! Great technique, Jennifer McGuire would be so proud! LOVE!

  5. This card is overthe top fabulous. I think you have created real looking stained glass. It is just so beautiful and reminds me of the work my sister did with glass.

  6. Wow! This is GORGEOUS!!!! It looks just like stained glass! Beautiful job!

  7. A real STUNNER Judy! Love the colors you chose ... really does look like morning glories and I too will have to check out that technique! FABULOUS instruction & inspiration!

  8. OMGosh Judy what a masterpiece you have created. Just watched the video and yes Jennifer would be so proud. Fantastic dies and such beautiful choice of colours. I am in awe of how stunning this is... and having the Prince's there with you. I hope they cooked for you while you were playing. Hugs.

  9. This gives me an idea to use the glass paints that I originally thought I would do the faux stained glass on acetate. I think I'll cut is out of black mirror cardstock attached to a double sided tape sheet and attach to an acetate sheet, since I don't know if the paint would bleed on cardstock. I'll let you know if that also works.
