Robin Redbreast Stained Glass

Hello there my crafty friends!  Here's another 
stained glass card for you, but completely different that yesterdays!  I started by making a large piece of Pixie Powdered background using Emerald Green, Candy Pink, Rich Gold and Lava Red.  I allowed it to dry completely then cut it in half.  One side I saved to use as my background for my stained glass and the other I used to cut the flowers from for my card.  I cut the Robin Stained Glass die out of coconut white card.  I cut a piece of the pixied background just large enough to fit the stained glass and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and attached the Robin Stained Glass die cut to it.  I coated the remaining adhesive with clear micro beads for texture and added mounting foam to the back.  I cut the Twinkle Star Frame out of white and backed it in white, attaching the Stained glass in the centre.  I made three different sizes poinsettias using the Classic Poinsettia die and the Poinsettia Additions and attached two to the lower corner and one in the opposite corner.  I accented them with pine boughs from the Pine Cone die set.  White on white mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue. Amazing card, lovely to see more of your stained glass collection.
Pam, wonderful to hear from you but sorry that you're so poorly. Gallstones are nasty little b's and the infection they can cause is horrendous. I hope that the antibiotics are kicking in by now. Don't even give a thought to work, just get well soon. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Thankful Friends,

This seems much simpler than stacking the die cuts three high, glittering the individual colors onto acrylic and waiting for them to dry. Seems like distress inks or oxides could also produce a mottled effect, maybe not as dramatic as Pixie Powders. I would be tempted to get some red in the robin's breastal area.

Love the twinkle frame. I can see myself overusing it.

Pam, so glad you're safe, in caring hands, and that you haven't lost your sense of humor. I hope there's no delay in getting you the proper medication this time.

Love,
Donita

Morning Sue. Another one of your beautiful Stained Glass cards. The colours are gorgeous and so different from yesterdays. It just shows how many different techniques you can use on these Stained Glass dies. Pam it's so good to hear from you. You are in the right place to get all the help you need. I know what it's like to have gall bladder trouble they took mine our two years ago and it's the best thing they could have done because they are so painful. Take care and a speedy recovery.
Best Wishes.

Morning, Sue,
What a unique card today! I love the way you've used the same card for the flowers as for the background. I don't have too many pixie powders but I think I need to get the rest of the set. As well as making backgrounds with them I've started to make shimmer sprays as well and I love the results so far��.

Sue, You Started By Making Today's Superb Card By Creating A Large Piece Of Of Pixie Powdered Background
In The Most Magical Colour Combination, You Allowed This To Dry Then You Cut The Piece In Half
One Half You Saved For Using As Your Background, The Other Half To Use For Your Poinsettias.
You Cut The Robin Redbreast Stained Glass Die Out Of Coconut White Card Then You Cut A Piece Of The Pixie

Famous/Signature/Piercing Then You Attached To Another Piece Of Coconut White Card This Time A Flat Mat
So You Used The Acrylic Glue.
Sue, You Made Three Poinsettias You Attached Two To The Lower Corner Of Your Masterpiece Then One In Opposite
Corner, You Accented Them With Pine Boughs From The Pine Cone Die, You Cut Them Out Of Coconut White Card
Then Glued Into Place Using The Acrylic Glue, You Placed Pearls To The Centre Of Your Poinsettias.
Also Adding Pearls To The Stars Within The Twinkle Star Frame..........

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and with such a contrasting look to yesterday's. The pixied background and poinsettias are gorgeous as are the robin and the Twinkle Star background dies. Yet another winner for me.

Karen M - I hope your scaffolding is not giving you too much pain (a friend had something similar and all he wanted to do was scratch) and that you get the second operation soon.
Maria - I will be metaphorically holding your hand today and Thursday, hope all goes well.
Rosemary - hope that you and your son are ok and you can get things sorted out.
Laine - hoping that the infection clears up quickly and you can get back to normal - if you know what that is lol.

Hi Sue,

Lovely card and great technique.I love the Twinkle Star Frame! When I stopped to Shannonville, I saw same cards they made using this set of dies. Beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration.

Maria - Thinking of you today(and tomorrow). Hope everything will go as planned.
Pam - Missing your early comment. Take care my dear friend and follow doctor's instructions.
Laine - Sorry to hear you had again health problems. I thought we have a deal: no more health issues this year and many years from now on. Wish you all the best. Sending many hugs to you, to your mum and to PP.

Hello Sue,
To me this is a card to which I aspire! My pixie powder forays in the past have been nothing like yours! Ok - but nothing like yours! Maybe I'm being too mean! I love your flowers - they are beautiful. Thanks for the Tips!
Oh dear - without our lovely Pam I 'm rather lost! Pam - thinking of you and praying today has been a better day and that you may be well enough to get home soon. The twins will be upset when they know Grandma is unwell! Sending you lots of love my friend . You have been so very thoughtful about others. X
Maria - I have just been catching up - thinking of you and hoping all goes well! You are such a kind, lovely lady . Remember I have hair envy!!! Ha ha!
Laine - you are having such a rough time and I'm so sorry! I do think that cat needs a bell!!! A magpie! Whatever next! You take care and give my love to PP when you speak to her. I did tell Maureen you were asking about her. x
To everyone else - lots of love,

Suzzette Yandle said...

Gorgeous card and it is BIG. Definitely a "mantel pleaser". I really, really like your stain glass designs. Almost makes me what to get back into stain glass work. Notice, I said, "almost". I have not forgotten the burned fingers and the itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny shards of glass that seemed to find every finger on both of my hands. I think I will stick with PAPER awhile longer!

Latenight SandyH said...

Fabulous card. Makes me want to go play with the pixies (and perhaps buy a few more colours).
Take care everyone.
