Painted Glass Christmas Rose Window
B eautiful Christmas card using products from Stampin' Up!
Cut cardstock, Galvanized Metallic Paper, and Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Mint Macaron Cardstock at 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" square from Shaded Spruce Cardstock
- 2-3/4" square from Mint Macaron Cardstock
- 2-3/4" square from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" from Galvanized Metallic Paper
- 1-3/8" x 2-5/8" from Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
- 2" x 3" from Whisper White Cardstock
Insert the Shaded Spruce square into the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Use the thin line drawn on the front flap of the folder to help you line up the paper and get it straight. Place the folder with the paper inside directly on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place a Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
VERY IMPORTANT: You are using only ONE Cutting Pad. If you try to use two, the sandwich will be too thick and you could damage the Big Shot.
Adhere the dry embossed Shaded Spruce square to the front of the Mint Macaron card.
Mount the rose window image from the Painted Glass Set on Block D. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square.
Lay the stamped square on top of the Grid Paper in the center. Sprinkle on some Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder so it covers all of the stamped image. Tap off excess powder. Return the excess powder to the container to use again later.
Heat the powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely melted (smooth and shiny).
Pick out the circle framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits that cuts out a circle that is 2-1/8" diameter. Place the heat embossed rose window image on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the circle framelit on top so it is centered over the image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Place the heat embossed circle cut out on top of some paper on your work surface (Grid Paper works great). You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Start coloring with the Stampin' Blends Markers. The markers have a brush tip for coloring in larger areas and a fine tip for coloring in smaller areas. Refer to the sample for coloring ideas.
Pick out the circle framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits that cuts out a circle that is 2-3/8" diameter. Place the Mint Macaron square on the Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the circle framelit on top. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the colored circle cut out to the Mint Macaron circle.
Put strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive on HALF of the back of the matted circles. Remove the protective backings and adhere the circle to the top center of the card so half of the matted circles stick up above the top of the card.
Carefully peel up a rhinestone from a sheet of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the rose window image.
Mount the "A Reason to Celebrate" sentiment to Block B. Ink it up with the Shaded Spruce Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white rectangle.
Carefully peel up the protective backing on one side of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet piece and adhere it to one side of the Galvanized Metallic Paper piece. Leave the other protective backing piece in place.
Place the Galvanized Metallic Paper piece on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot so that the adhesive side (with protective backing in place) is on the bottom (silver facing up).
Pick out the small rectangle thinlit from the Stained Glass Thinlits. Place it on top of the Galvanized Metallic Paper piece on the Big Shot. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush and Paper-Piercing Tool to remove the pieces.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the cross pieces in the center of the rectangle cut out.
Peel the protective backing off of the trimmed rectangle cut out and adhere it to the stamped white rectangle so the sentiment is centered in the rectangle.
Use Paper Snips to trim off excess white cardstock along the edges of the rectangle cut out.
Place the rectangle cut out on top of some paper on your work surface (Grid Paper works great). You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Use the fine tips of the Stampin' Blends Markers to color in the spaces between the rectangle cut out lines. Refer to the sample for coloring ideas.
Cut a 4" piece of Tranquil Tide 1/4" Velvet Ribbon so there are sharp angles on either end.
Lay the ribbon across the center of the back of the colored and trimmed sentiment rectangle so the lighter side will be facing up and a bit of ribbon hangs out on either side. Adhere in place using small pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Leave the protective backings in place.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment rectangle with ribbon attached to the center of the card front under the circles.
