Lacey Tiers Stained Glass

Hi bloggers!  I just wish you could see this one in person as it is so pretty!  I love the pop of the glittered window against the black and white, it really does look like a stained glass window.  I used the Filigree Corner dies designed by Becca Feeken for Justrite stamps and cut four of them out of black card.  I glued them in the corners of my white card.  Next I cut one of the Lacey Tier dies out of black card.  I glued the frame on the diagonal in the middle of my corners.  I cut a piece of coconut white card large enough to accommodate the circular part of the die.  I covered the piece with a sticky self adhesive sheet. I peeled the backing paper off and placed my die cut on it.  I made sure that it was completely stuck down by placing the release paper back over it and rubbing well.  Next I used the Lilac, Lavender, Iced Blue and the Vintage Violet polished silk glitter and sprinkled it randomly over the exposed sticky sheet.  I used my finger to rub it smoothly into the sticky areas around the die cut.  This also blends the glitter nicely.  I tapped off the excess and wiped off any glitter left on the die cut.  I trimmed the excess away from around the circle and added mounting foam to the back.  I mounted it in the centre of my card.  I added a double black mat with a pierced inner mat layer to complete my card.  No sentiment this time as I think it could be used for just about anything.  I really liked the way this one came out, I hope you do too!  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Oooh I love the pretty colours - and I have two corner dies on their way to me. I don't have the central die, but I'm sure I could substitute one. Once again, thanks for the idea - you still amaze me at how you come up with them.

Rose in Chester said...

Good morning Sue,
I'm running out of superlatives here.... this card is another fab one and I fully agree about the "no sentiment" - I find it difficult to add a sentiment on quite a lot of my cards due to lack of room (don't ask why)... In any case, people can write their sentiments on the inside!
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue - this card is a reminder of the window at Ally Pally and how wonderful it was to watch your demos (especially being lucky enough to come home with one!) Have now found the Secret Garden stamp on the internet so I am looking forward to doing the fire and ice version of your beautiful white on white card you had on the stand.You worked so hard on Saturday and I expect yesterday was just as busy so hope you have a very relaxing day.

Victoria said...

This card really did look lovely on TV, you could see the shimmer properly, but your photos do a good job too! Great technique again.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
What a stunning card and being a fan of stain glass windows i can just imagine the effect that it projects. Normally i am not really a black fan, but the black shows off the "stain glass" beautifully.
Hope you had a great time at the Ally Pally and recover from the toils of it quickly.
Love and crafty hugs

Hello Sue
Before Spellbinders I had lots of Jayne Nestorenko medallion stamps, and used her H2os to colour..I was wondering if this would be the same effect, until my Dies arrive that is !
Love this card Sue, and leaving the bits in part.
Lovely card as usual!

Crafty Nanna said...

Morning Sue, it is a stunning card especially when seen personally and I loved watching you demoing a similar version with the peacock mask. Thank you again for signing my card and I was lucky enough to get a piece you had made. I also managed to get the Roman Romance folder that Becca has on her blog at the mo so had a great time at your stand. I don't know how you managed to keep that lovely smile and energy going right to the end of Sunday too!

Hope you manage a good rest today,

Tres said...

Hi Sue. This is an amazing card today !! I love the stained glass window effect with Becca's beautiful dies. I have some of the polished silk glitters and they are fantastic. They are unlike any other glitters I have ever seen or used before. They are so nice to work with although I tend to get myself, the dogs, the cat and every where In the surrounding area covered in glitter !! I do not have the Lacey tiers dies yet but they are on my wish list. This is a very beautiful card Sue and one that could be used for any occasion. I love the way the black card brings the sparkly glitters to life !! You are the one who inspired me to try using black card. I always thought there was no place for it on a greeting card but I was very wrong. It really compliments just about any other colour you put with it and makes your design pop !!
Hope you take some time out for yourself and have a good rest. Lots of love Tres x x x

Jean Johnston said...

Just received my new Spellbinder dies and will try them out with this design. Lovely and useful for many occasions.
