Graceful Glass is one of fourteen new product suites introduced by Stampin’ Up! in the new 2018-2109 annual catalog. The beautiful stained glass images combined with a Gothic type font are unlike any other set I can remember seeing in my many years as a demonstrator. The thinlits dies look like art deco architectural images and add another layer of fine detail. Check out the video below for an overview of the product suite.
I purchased this suite during the demonstrator pre-order and have enjoyed making a few projects with these products. The first card uses the the stained glass window from the stamp set. I stamped on vellum and colored using Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write markers. I attached the image to a square of Whisper White cardstock and then die cut the black frame using one of the Stained Glass thinlits dies. The greeting was die cut from one of the Layering Ovals framelits. The card base is a 4 1/4″ square of Pineapple Punch, one of the new In Colors. The stained glass piece and black cord are mounted onto a 3/3/4″ square of the Pineapple Punch cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The next card uses another new color, Balmy Blue, as the card base. I am loving this new blue! I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of vellum from one of the designs in the Graceful Glass 6″x6″ Designer Vellum set of papers. The architectural detail was cut with Gorgeous Grape cardstock using one of the coordinating framelits and attached to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the butterflies with Soft Sea Foam, Gorgeous Grape and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Write Markers and attached them with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used this sketch from Splitcoast Stampers as my jumping off point.
