This card is what I used in my June Stamping Technique Class. We did two techniques this time – the Stained Glass Technique and Clear Block Stamping.  I made mine into a lovely sympathy card, but it could easily be converted to a birthday or thinking of you card.


My stampers seemed to really enjoy this card and I’m sure they’ll be using these techniques again soon.  In case you missed my class, here are the instructions for both techniques.  If you try them, I’d love to see how your projects turned out – send me a pic!


Stained Glass Technique

Outlined Stamp of choice
~Heat Tool
~Embossing Buddy
~Stampin’ Emboss Powder
~Stampin’ Write Markers

1.  Emboss Powder where it belongs on the stamped image.
2.  Emboss Powder over it.
3.  Emboss Powder until it melts.
4.  Flip vellum over and color the back of the image with markers. Let it dry.
5.  Adhere the vellum piece to neutral cardstock, making sure the embossed side faces up.

Clear Block Stamping

~Clear block size of your choice
~Stampin’ Write Markers
~Stampin’ Spritzer or Shimmer Mist
~Whisper White Card Stock or Watercolor Paper

1.  Color the block with your Stampin’ Write Markers. Choose 3 or 4 colors and apply the lightest color first, then just add color where you think it will look nice.
2.  Spritz the colored block with water or a shimmer mist.
3.  Stamp color on Whisper White CS or Stampin’ Up! Watercolor paper. The fun part is watching how your color block dries because you final result is never the same!
