Stained Glass Effect Using Glossy Accents - Be Mine Stitched Framelits from Stampin' Up!

Today's project was a little experiment for me.

I wanted to create something that resembled stained glass. 

I used my Be Mine Stitched Framelits for this one, die-cutting the pretty stitched heart twice.  The die I used separates the heart insert leaving a stitched frame.   I really wanted some great dimension to my single layer card, so I die-cut it twice and stacked the two stitched frames before adhering to my card front.

Then I smooshed one of the remaining heart inserts in Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana ink.   I left them to dry thoroughly.   Once they were dry, I applied some Glossy Accents over the inked up heart and left it overnight.

It all looked rather smooth, which was lovely, but not the look I wanted, so I added another layer of Glossy accents and roughed it up a little with my bone folder and left that to dry.

I was really pleased with my rough and uneven glassy finish.   I added some glue and popped it into the centre of my stitched heart.  The sentiment which seemed rather appropriate is from the Special Celebrations two part stamp set, which was heat embossed in gold.

I rather like how it turned out.   I hope you do too.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely weekend. 

Happy crafting !

  1. Linda, did you also stack the heart frame 3 times???? Really interested in trying this but am a beginner so thinking this may just be beyond me, but I feel I could do it.

  2. I stacked the heart frame twice. the centre is just one layer...... and give it a go. You can do it.

  3. OK Linda. Got it now. Old age beginner.... I reckon I can do that. Thank you. I don't have those particular heart dies but I have dies I can put together to make a frame. Yes, I am going to give it a try. THANK YOU. XX Mal

  4. Good for you. And if you don't get it right first time ..... don't give up xx
