Stained glass dies – 3 ways

Hi! Today I am back with 3 ways to use your stained glass dies. I am sharing 3 different techniques to use them including your markers, inlay die cutting and window/shaker card. For all my examples today I used these two new die sets from the latest Stained Glass collection by Spellbinders

For a full list of all the supplies used please scroll at the bottom of this post.

Use your markers to color in all the little areas, then cover up the mess with a die cut! Check the video for step by step tutorial

Use paper pieces for all the little areas, recommended when the design isn’t very intricate and does not have too many small pieces like in the first card.

Make a window card with acetare that give that stained glass look or even turn it into a shaker card like I did!

    I just love the stained glass look and your cards are beautiful! The way you colored the flowers gave me another idea for a die I have! Thank you!! The elegance of the flower card; the fun summer look of the “sun” card; and the shaker card show off the diversity of this technique. One technique and 3 styles of cards — elegant, casual and fun. Well done, Vicky! I also must say that the bow in your winter birdhouse die set is just adorable and adds the perfect touch on the flower card! Thank you for the video, for reminding me of this technique and for providing a new — to me — way to get this look! Have a great weekend. PS – I’m off to play with some resin for the first time!!!

    Hi, Vicky – Well, you have done it again! You’re a marvel!! You have made three cards so fast – yes, I know it’s a video, but a good bit of this was done in real time. I like all three cards but the “summer vibes” is my favorite. I will have to check out that die. I love the tips you gave about stained glass, esp coloring on the back of the image to give a frosted appearance.
    Love your work and am grateful for your videos. I enjoy them so much!

    I have several detailed Spellbinder and Tonic dies that are difficult to paper piece. Thanks for the suggestion to color w/ alcohol markers. What brand of vanilla card stock do you use?
