Today’s card had a super neat product that will appear in the new Annual Catalog. It is a pack of 6 X 6 paper that looks like stained glass, minus the color. It has raised black lines and all you have to do is color it. I have used Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blends. I like Blends the best of the two. This one is done with the Stampin’ Blends. I have not tried watercoloring them yet. Stay tuned for that one. This is just a quick one I made to see how it looked with other colors around it.
All I had to do for this crd was cut, color, and stamp the sentiment. The “stained glass” piece I used here is on a sheet of four exactly alike. So I just cut one out and layered it on Whisper White. It does need a light background to show the colors. Otherwise, It would have faded into the berry color of the DSP I believe.
As I said, this is a great way to quickly color a lot of focal points for cards. The raised black line helps keep you from overlapping the colors and gives it the old world look of stained glass. I cannot wait to color some more of this. There are quite a few different patterns in the package. So stay tuned!
Thanks again for stopping by. Be sure and come back tomorrow as I will be participating in an InKing Royalty Blog Hop. Woohoo!! There are always such great ideas from very talented stampers for you to check out.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special: The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out. So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that. New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price. So 2 months for the price of 1. A great deal. Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418
It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would love to have you join my team. A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first. Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early. For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator. Of course, the discount helps! If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
