Pootler’s Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up! Painted Glass card

If it’s a new catagloue, then it must be time for another Pootles Blog Hop. This post is one of many on this hop, all featuring products from the new catalogue. Please hop around as many blogs as you can and leave a comment, it means a lot to us all.

My card uses the Painted Glass bundle. I’ve used one of the stamps to make a background, and the butterfly stamp and die to add some interest. The stamp set and dies are available as a bundle at a 10% discount.

I coloured the butterflies using the blender pens and then die cut them out. The stamp set also has a rose and a bird that I could also have used.

There is also some beautiful patterned vellum which goes with this suite – I’m waiting for it to arrive so I haven’t used it here. You should take a look though, it is beautiful.

See that embossed background at the top and bottom of the card? That is a die that I used the new embossing pads on to make an impression rather than a a die cut. Effective isn’t it?

You can use any dies with the embossing mats and your Big Shot to emboss with dies, so you can make even better use of them.

The card base is Whisper White and the embossed card is the lovely returning Mint Macaron. Here’s a close up of that embossing.

I used some Wink of Stella on the butterflies but it doesn’t show up in the photos. I chose the A Reason to Celebrate sentiment because I thought it could be used for a number of things. Hope you like it!
