Daisy Stained Glass

Hi there my crafty friends!   I had a piece of Pixie Powdered background that I used to start this card.  It used Midnight Blue and Purple Violet Pixie powders.  Next I cut the Daisy Stained Glass out of black card, then sprayed it with glue and coated it with Black Glitterbitz.  I attached it to the pixie powder background, then added dries clear glue to the two daisy centres.  I filled them in with medium micro beads and allowed them to dry.  I matted it on to a white piece cut with the Double Stitched Rectangles, then a slightly larger mat cut out of black.  I cut two of the Ava die in white and glued them to a larger piece of coconut white card in opposite corners.  I completed the card with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4" in size.

I have a Mini Festive release to share with you starting here tomorrow at 6am for the next four days.  There are only 11 die designs in this release, but I think they are really different and fun!   They haven't been premiered on a pre-order release so it may be the first time you are seeing them.   Have an open mind!   I hope to see you back then! All for now, Sue

I love your stained glass dies and today's card is beautiful. Love the dark colours behind the die and the glitter on it.
Looking forward to the new release of dies,you have me intrigued. It will be nice to see some for the first time time on here instead of in all the emails pushing the pre orders!

Wonderful card today! Two lovely design ideas, using the black glitterbitz and micro beads in the centres of the flowers. It gives it a bit of a mixed media feel. Fab combination of colours of Pixie powder. Debra x

Oh Sue what do I say - absolutely gorgeous, wow, that background is stunning and I do love your stained glass collection, how can you love and want something so desperately and still not have it, if only money was no object instead of counting every penny but that's life - right ?
At last no sneaky peaks how special is that, no pre-launch emails spoiling our excitement and I can't wait ☺ knowing how you've thrown so many different style dies into the mix over the past few launches, there is no way we can even pre-empt what's on the way, may be I should get a euro millions ticket this week lol.
Thanks for a really beautiful sample, and I'll be one of hundreds waiting in anticipation for tomorrow's big surprise. Enjoy your day xxx

Hi sue,

Love the look of the stained glass die, it's something I've not tried yet but need to as the results are stunning!
Looking forward to seeing yr new dies.

Another whole day before we can see the first one!

You've struck upon a magical combination with the midnight blue and purple Pixie Powders, but this card seems so dark. I wonder if silver might have worked in this card to brighten it up. But I like the idea of glitterbitz where the stained glass leading would be.

Suddenly feeling sleepy!

Best of Wednesday's to you!

Beautiful card Sue. I bought 3 of your stained glass window dies ages ago and still haven't tried them so I think today's posting may just be the push that I need.
Thank you so much.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card and the simple way you have created a picture. Glittering the frame and adding micro beads all add to its beauty. The Ava die makes lovely corners and I like that you have left two corners empty, classy.

A mini festive release? What a lovely surprise and with your hint to keep an open mind I cannot imagine what you have in store for us!

Just SPLENDID! Really gorgeous card Sue - and what a wonderful way to use the Ava die in the two corners. I REALLY, REALLY like this one, and am going to have a try at it myself as i need to make a card for a dear friend who is celebrating her birthday next week. Thank you so much for all your beautiful creations over the years and your faithful hard work. God bless you!

Suzzette Yandle said...

Beautiful. And a couple more ideas for your stainglass dies by adding glitter to the stainglass paper caming and micro beads to the center parts. I do enjoy making cards with your stainglass dies. Please keep those ideas coming to us crafters.

And on top of that there are the mini festive collection release tomorrow to look forward to - YIPPEEE.

Gorgeous card. Love the pixie powder background. The Ava dies in the corners behind the stained glass panel creates a totally different look. So pretty.
I've been AWOL for a few weeks as my DH has been ill. He's much better now but I'm struggling to get back to normality again.
Take care everyone.

This card is so lovely card. I really like the way you placed the stain glass part on top of the lacey die cuts. You are always inspiring.

A beautiful card. Love the stained glass effect. Thank you.

Pawprintx4 said...

All the stained glass dies are among my favorites and the daisy is no exception. They are so versatile and here is yet another take on this pretty die.I did a double take on your background...thought it was an embossing folder at first.
Take care all,

Hi Sue,
Pretty card. I have only used micro beads once on the snowflake background die using double sided sheets, and was surprised how heavy the card was. I will now try them with glue in smaller areas. Thank you.
Best wishes
