Faux Stained Glass Technique

Hello friends & welcome to another Heartfelt Wednesday inspiration post...
Faux Stained Glass Ornament Card  Pinterest
I have another card using O Holy Night Collection to share with you today... The star of this card is a Christmas Ornament which I made using the dies from Noel Ornament Die and I have used the Faux Stained Glass Technique that I Jennifer Mcguire demonstrated few weeks back... I loved the results and I had to give it a try...
I have changed few things like I used Gold cardstock instead of heat embossing and 3-D Crystal Lacquer to get the faux stained glass look.

Basically you die cut the detailed die a few times and stack them to create a chipboard like piece... color the base and fill in the depressions with any clear product like 3-D Crystal Lacquer, Glossy accents etc... and let it dry. The top layer can be changed according to your preference like white, gold, silver, black or any other color of your choice. The top layer is adhered after the 3-D Crystal Lacquer is completely dry so that any imperfections can be masked. Scroll down to see the full instructions and supply list to make this card.

But before we move on to my card here is an amazing offer I want to share with you all...

Dimensional Stamped Image Technique

Hello friends & welcome to another Heartfelt Wednesday inspiration post
I have made a card for today's inspiration.

I find that when the stamped image doesn't standout well on a busy background so I use this simple technique to lift up the stamped image by giving it some dimension.
I use 4 or 5 pieces of cardstock die cut with the same coordinating die that was used to cut the stamped image and stack them up. 

You could do this by simply using foam adhesive behind the image but I think that the stacked die cut method is much better because it serves 2 purpose... It gives the image a solid and sturdy base so the image doesn't warp while mailing and it also looks nice from the sides.

Read till the end for the supply list & full instructions for making this card.
