Graceful Glass Designer Vellum Global Stampers Challenge
This month’s Global Stampers’ Blog Hop Challenge is a 3 D project. I sometimes struggle with 3 D projects – not always does something creative quickly pop into my head and this month it was no different. But I do always have a soft spot for candles and tealights. After procrastinating for a few days, I decided that the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum would be perfect to work with. This pack comes in 6″ x 6″ sheets (48 per pack). But I am really not a traditional stained glass window type of gal. And I really did want something a little different.
Now whilst this was a 3 D challenge I decided that you had to make a card, just because. Each of these projects was coloured using Stampin’ Blends – Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.
I love how these look of a night. I used a flameless tealight and a flameless candle (IKEA) for safety reasons.
Tips and Tricks
Some of the sheets of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum can be cut into multiple panels. For the candle, I cut one sheet into four panels. I only used one panel for this project. The panel was adhered to the candle using Mini Glue Dots at each corner and in the centre. (10-minute project)
To decorate the centre of the candle and the card I used a Tinted Faceted Button and a Gold Faceted Gem. Adhere the button using a mini glue got. (15 mins project)
As I was looking for a different concept for the stained glass panel, I turned the panel 45 degrees which completely changed the appearance of the card. I was going to add a sentiment to the bottom of the card but I had used the strip of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum as a test for the Blends. I quite often find scraps on my desk that I can repurpose as part of the project.
The tealight holder was very simple to make. I coloured one sheet of Graceful Glass Designer Vellum using the same colours as above. This is a very simple project. I adhered 1/4″ strip of black Glimmer Paper (now retired) to both the top and bottom of the strip. Join the two sides together to form a circular shape (Tear and Tape). This project would take about 15 mins.
