Stained-Glass for Monday

A good morning to you, dear reader! I've sadly neglected you these last few days (what do you mean...weeks??!) But, in truth, I have been busy, just not here on my blog and I do apologise to you. I've been out of town attending a "Gal Pal" reunion in New Jersey - had a WONderful time, but gals, it was tooo short! Can't wait till next year and the beach - a WHOLE WEEK!! Woohoo!!

Anyways, back to the stained-glass card. I made this for a card swap and had a blast making it. I used all Stampin' Up products except for the tiny pearls on the surface of the acetate. They were left over from a wedding project I completed back in July. I love the look of glitter but it makes an unholy mess, even when done exactly with exacting measurements in an exactly perfect surroundings. And you know what? I'm just not perfect. Not by a loooong shot, no sirree!!! Sooo, I had a mess on my hands, but I do believe I got the look I was aiming for. When doing stained glass on acetate, you stamp on the front and color on the back - hence you appear to be looking through stained glass. The tiny seed pearls are on the front of the acetate and I used pop dots to anchor the vase on the paper. The silly little white bow which now I do believe was totally unnecessary, makes the vase appear skewed but it's really not - maybe it's the flash from the camera that does that.

That's it for today. I hope your week has started off on the right foot. Say a prayer for your loved ones. I happen to know that God listens all the time.

God bless!


  1. Mel,
    I'm glad you're back.
    Nice combination of colors and textures. From what I can see, there were a lot of steps used for this card. I appreciate your hard work.

  2. This is so pretty and you chose beautiful colors.

  3. This is beautiful! I like the white bow (silly or not!!).
