Illuminated Christmas!


Painted GlassHappy Friday! The weekend and Thanksgiving around the corner I thought I share this little beauty. I’m always looking out for stamps which reflect the meaning of Christmas and I thought Illuminated Christmas and the Painted Glass Suite was a perfect combination for what I was looking for and maybe for you as well.

Materials for this card:

Illuminated Christmas (from the Holiday Catalog and there are still plenty available) #147836

Painted Glass Bundle (from the Catalog) #148362.

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut down to 5-1/2 ” x 4-1/4″   #119685

Whisper White Cardstock cut down to 5-1/4 ” x 4-” #100730

Coastal Cabana Cardstock for the sentiment cut to 3″ x 1″ #131297

Blueberry Bushel for the piece under the sentiment cut to 3-1/4″ x .3/4″ #146968

Stampin Blends Daffodil Delight #144586, Dark Olive #144573, Dark Lovely Lipstick #147028, Night of Navy Dark #144039 and Light Night of Navy #144036

My base card is Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut to 5- 1/2″ x 4- 1/4″. The second layer is whisper white cardstock and cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″. I used a piece of whisper white cardstock and the Painted Glass Thinlit dies to cut the windows. I adhered those pieces to vellum and cut the Vellum to make the pieces fit. Next I colored the image. When coloring on Vellum, particularly in this case, turn the image to its back and start coloring. The star I used came from the Illuminated Christmas set and I stamped it on a piece of Vellum using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is a fast drying ink and works very well on Vellum. Make sure to wait about a couple of minutes before coloring the star. I used Daffodil Delight Dark for my star. I adhered the window to the front of the whisper white cardstock and added the star to the front of the window. I put together the Blueberry Bushel piece and the Coastal Cabana cardstock which I had stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment came from the Illuminated Christmas set. I used stampin dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Last I adhered the finished whisper white piece to my Cherry Cobbler base cardstock piece.
