Rose Wonder Stained Glass Technique

I love this card!  It was pretty labor intensive to make, but oh so worth it.  It's called the Stained Glass Technique and I have step by step photos below.
Thank you to Dena Recow for the awesome idea.

You start by laying down some sheets of Press n Seal to hold your roses after you cut them out.  I knew I was going to make several cards, so I cut a bunch. 
I chose to use Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride for the roses and Basic Black for the outline.

Cut them all out using the Rose Wonder Thinlit and don't forget the leaves.

To assemble the roses, you trace around the rose thinlit with any color of cardstock - I chose Crumb Cake.  it will be covered up so use what you have excess of.  Cover the entire rose shape with Fast Fuse adhesive.

Position the Basic Black outline of the rose onto the shape.

I started in the middle, it does not matter where you start.  My center is Watermelon Wonder color.  Pick up the pieces of that rose and place them in the blank spots of your Basic Black template like a puzzle.

Next section is Calypso Coral, fill all those spots in.

Finish off with the Blushing Bride pieces.  You will have enough rose parts left over to make several other cards.

Isn't this beautiful!! 

I made several while I was cutting away.

Once you are finished with the roses you have all the outlines to use on another project.

I added the leaves using Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz cardstocks.

The aftermath of a time well had!  Isn't that a fun technique!

  1. Becky, these are gorgeous! Thanks so much for the tutorial, I am definitely going to make some of these!

  2. Wow, those turned out beautifully! Thank you for the tutorial, so much easier when you can see the visuals.

  3. Very pretty technique. Thanks for the great tutorial! Now, what to do with all the outlines? I've seen them used for watercoloring outlines on several blogs. TFS!

  4. I made these cards this week. Such a beautiful card. I like your technique, I had used sticky paper but this has to be ordered. What is

    What individual leaf did you use I like it better than the one that came with the Rose Wonder thinlits.

    you mention using some sheets of Press n Seal to hold your roses does SU sell this? The rose petals all fall apart when I take them off my big shot. It would be nice to slide them to this press and seal paper. I like the tutorial thanks for sharing it.

  5. Lora, Press and Seal is a kitchen item like Saran Wrap only really sticky. You can get it at the grocery store. The leaf is from the Rose framelits, I just cut it off the flower.

  6. Awesome article! I want people to know just how good this information is in your article. It’s interesting, compelling content. Your views are much like my own concerning this subject. Best Glass Coffee Mugs
