New Stained Glass Technique
Happy Monday, Stamping Friends! We had a lovely weekend in the “Apple Capital.” Winchester is gearing up for our annual Apple Blossom Festival, a huge event with parades, luncheons, parties, and more. The main events are the first weekend in May, but the festivities actually started last Thursday with a carnival and a wine tasting event this weekend. Our town explodes over the May weekend; we grow 177%. It’s great for tourism, but Mike & I grew up here. We went to the luncheons, parades, carnivals, and fireworks when we were kids, and we took the boys when they were kids. These days, we head out of town as soon as we can.
I saw a very fun Stained Glass technique last week from Julie Davison, another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. It was so fun, I had to make a video.
Here’s a picture of the finished project.
I love how the flowers look with this technique. And here’s a close up of the stained glass flower.
Here’s the original card I made. I decided to use a current set for the video, since you can’t purchase the To a Wild Rose Stamp Set, Wild Rose Dies, Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set (the sentiment), or Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!® yet. They will all be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog beginning June 4.
I bundled the stamp set with the Wild Rose Dies to save 10%. I love the new dies in the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. They are easier to line up, and I think the border is a little narrower. Of course, if you don’t like the aluminum foil border, you can always trim it with Paper Snips.
Although the Tea Together Stamp Set and Tea Time Dies will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and the Adhesive Sheets (as well as all other Sizzix products, including the Big Shot) will be retiring. While stamp sets will be available through the middle of May, other products are “while supplies last.” So be sure to order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
