Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Stained Glass Floral Bouquet

It's a miracle that little painted shards of glass can come together to create such beauty!!  The intriguing lure of Stained Glass has inspired artisans from around the world to try their hand at shuffling colors and shuffling shards of glass to create something lovely to gaze upon.  Today we are introducing the newest Amazing Paper Grace collection called Stained Glass Floral Bouquet, created for Spellbinders.


Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.


Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Inspiration


Becca says that the inspiration for the collection came from her love of stained glass and never being able to muster the time to do it with real glass.  Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?  Now it's easy to create with paper!  It's amazing how you can give the same outline to a hand full of different artists and each will come up with a totally different look.


Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection


The Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection is made up of 7 different die sets.  They are sized for layering and include small designs all the way up to A7 designs with different frames that can make both A2 and A7 designs.  The collection boasts shadow dies for each set so that whenever you don't want a multicolor design, you can layer your "die-cut leading" onto one color.  The hallmark of the collection is a sweet stained glass flower and shadow in almost every set.  That gives you a background die and a central motif for each set.  


Attention "technique junkies" this collection is sweetly serenading you to try your favorite technique with the leading and the shards. 


     Here are ours:

  1. Fill each opening with a different color paper and add Glossy Accents.
  2. Ink on a hombre background before resetting your shards.
  3. Add a smidge of color in each opening with a Copic Marker.
  4. Use a different color leading - white, black, gold, silver.
  5. Build up tall leading with 4 layers and adhesive in between each.


My Projects for Today


I'm using S6-171 the Wistful Window Etched Dies

I think this collection is very cleverley named and I really wanted to created a stained glass effect for this card project.   I decided to do a blended background panel using a selection of distress oxide inks in a range of complimentary colours,  which really do blend beautifully using an assortment of make-up blending brushes. 

I thought I would leave the card under embellished because I really wanted the stained glass window to be the star of the show.   So I just created a simple topper using the Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new Celebration Scene Etched Dies.

For my box project I did some very subtle blending of complimentary distress oxide inks on a pearly pastel green card stock.   I started with the darkest shade along each edge blending in a subtle green distress oxide ink towards the centre.   I used the same two shades to add colour the foliage among the flowers on the top of my box. 

I foiled the sentiment which is from the Borders and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates.

The flowers for this box project were made using the Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies.

Designers Tip: I like to create extra dimension for my projects by die-cutting intricate top layers twice and offsetting the bottom one slightly, as demonstrated for my card project.
