This month for my Stamp Group projects the technique was Faux Stained Glass. It uses Vellum, Versa Mark, Fine Black Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Blender Pen, White Gel Pen, & SU Markers. I had lots of the Deck the Halls DSP left so I used the scraps for the background of the card. I used the Artichoke seam binding & gathered it to add a little more dimension to the card. The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler. The Happy Holidays stamp came from a retired set called Warmest regards. I punched it out with the Modern Label punch & sponged it with Early Espresso. I colored the front of the vellum parts of Santa that should be white with the White Gel Pen and that gave it a lot of pop. It looks way better in person.
The members of my Stamp Group got a Fun item for their Christmas gift. It's a Bone White 6x6 China Heart box that they can decorate. A rub-on, or one of SU's small stencils would work great. I used the 4 pk of heart stencils from SU, and used the Craft Real Red Ink. I put Clear Embossing powder over the top and heat set it. It worked pretty good. I had to be really careful because in a few small spots it got a little over heated and turned the Embossing powder white. I would show you a picture, but due to copywright laws I guess the picture was blocked by the company that makes the Heart Box. So sorry!
