A few days ago I shared a card I made using the “Stained Glass” technique and Petal Palette stamp set. You can see it here if you missed that post. Today I am sharing a card I made with the same “Stained Glass” technique and Bird Banter stamp set.
The last time I used black embossing powder for the ‘leaded’ part of the stained glass. Then I realized that Stampin’ Up! retired that powder a couple of years ago. Oops! Not to worry though. Since it takes ink a while to dry on vellum paper, I stamped the images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and immediately added clear embossing powder. This works pretty well.I used Fast Fuze Adhesive to adhere the birds to the card front since the Fast Fuze does not show through the vellum.
I purchased this set mainly because one of the sentiments goes like this: “A little birdie told me it was your birthday….obviously, it wasn’t an early bird!” I am a great procrastinator and my modus operandi is to get the birthday card in the mail on the day of the birthday…if I’m lucky. So that greeting will be used a lot. However, I am falling in love with the birds. Stay tuned for more of these birds on cards.
