Technique Tuesday – Stained Glass

Stampin up - Stained Glass Technique


Today’s Technique Tuesday video features the Stained Glass technique.

Scroll down to watch the video and to see a second card sample. (If you received this message by e-mail or in a blog reader, you may need to visit my blog to see the link.)


For this first card, I used Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi reinkers. As the colour in the reinker is so concentrated, it often dries darker than the cardstock colour. So, for this card, I used Marina Mist cardstock instead of Baja Breeze.

If you are finding the reinkers are too intense and the colour is darker than you would like, try diluting the reinker with a little bit of water before applying to the Crystal Efffects.

Stampin up Stained Glass Technique #2


This second card also uses the Stained Glass technique but I used more drops of reinker to almost fill the window sheet.

The colours of reinkers used on this card are Real Red, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight.

By applying alot more reinker, I get a very different look than the first card.

    Beautiful! Thank you so much for the tutorial! I like the one with the real red and daffodil delight. I think it looks really neat when the re-inker is spread throughout the entire image. But, you a did a great job with both of them. I cannot wait to try this. I am wondering what it might look like if you diluted the re-inker with a a little water and misted it onto the crystal effects? Hmmmm, I will let you know. Thanks so much!

    Lovely technique and cards! Would alcohol inkers work instead of the re-inkers as I don’t have re-inkers?

    Gloria –

    I’m glad you liked this technique. It’s a lot of fun.

    I’m not sure if alcohol refills would work as I don’t have any to try. Please let me know if you try it out.

    […] I had so much fun experimenting with different ways to use them. I found this fun technique called Stained Glass using Crystal Effects (which I did not have). I decided to substitute Club Scrap’s Book […]
