Stained Glass Poinsettia

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Phill Martin's Honeypot Crafts Store in Nottingham today to celebrate the store's 10th Birthday. Do pop by if you're in the area - I am told that there's cake!

Sue Wilson is continuing with her One Day Special on Hochanda today with shows at 9am, 1pm and 5pm so, I thought I would share another Christmas Stained Glass Window Card -

I started by cutting the Poinsettia Stained Glass Window Die out of Coconut White Card twice. I added Quickie Glue to the back of one and popped onto a piece of Acetate. I trimmed the other die cut a little so that it was smaller than the first, added Quickie Glue to the front of it and added it to the back of the Acetate.

Working on the back, for the red areas, I popped some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet. I added a drop of Rich Crimson CS Intense Pigment Stain and some CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost and mixed well. I added to the sections shown using a Paint Brush.

For the green areas, I popped some more CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in a drop of Emerald CS Intense Pigment Stain.

For the centres of the flowers and the yellow sections in the frame, I mixed Clear Varnish Lacquer with a drop of Sunflower Yellow Intense Pigment Stain and a little CS Rich Gold Pixie Powder.

For the areas around the flowers, I mixed Clear Varnish Lacquer with Rich Gold Pixie Powder.

I matted onto Coconut White Card, then Antique Gold Pearl Card and then popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I cut Sue's From Our House to Yours Die out of Antique Gold Pearl Card and added to the inside of my card.

  1. Morning Julia, love this card but when I tried it I just got into a right 2 and 8, I used the correct medium but it was so very patchy, not sure what I was doing wrong, did you ever do a video on this, I know you did something like it on Hochanda a while ago but of course that is not on their site now.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  2. Sorry I haven't commented for a while, but I have still been visiting your blog every day. I love this technique, but haven't tried it myself. Enjoy your day in Nottingham. X
