Painted Rose Twofer

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The cards I'm sharing with you today are a couple I created during an initial play with the newly released Painted Glass stamp and bundle from Stampin' Up!  My mojo hadn't really returned at the time, so I began by gathering a bunch of white card off-cuts, and simply stamping, coloring, and die cutting a LOT of the roses from the set.  I did the same with the butterflies, but will show you those next week.

I still wasn't sure what to do with them, so folded some card blanks and had a play.  The result is a style I've not done for YEARS, though I have kept it CAS during that time...

I absolutely LOVE stained glass, and the bundle is already a favorite.  So much so that I didn't realize how many cards I've created with it over the last two weekends.  Don't worry, I won't bore you with them all in one go, but will show you the initial cards over the next couple weeks.

Card: Unbranded white (folded for the bases) and LOTS of SU's Whisper White snippets
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Markers: Spectrum Noir
Stamp sets: SU's Painted Glass
Tools and embellishments: SU's Stained Glass thinlits, and Nuvo Shimmer Sparkle pen
