Bind My Wandering Heart


Today's card is kind of different with it's grungy dictionary page background and glossy sentiment. It sort of looks like a vintage Valentine card - but it was my attempt at illustrating one of my favorite lines from "Come Thou Fount."

Stained Glass Window


It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both! As soon as I saw this board I thought of a stained glass window....so that's what I created!


I embossed my window on vellum paper and colored the reverse side with markers. After I finished it reminded me of a window die I have. It didn't quite fit the die exactly, so I cut the window apart and attached each pane of glass to the back of my window die. I got to thinking....you could also use Repeat Impressions 9402-U, Quilt Background to fill in the window panes if you wanted to.

Supplies and Tools:
  • Repeat Impression Stamps:
  • Vellum Paper
  • Touchfive Markers 
  • Versamark Watermarker Ink
  • Black Embossing Powder
  • Garden Greens Thinlits (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
  • Tiny Tattered Florals Dies (Sizzix - Tim Hotlz)
  • Brick Embossing Folder (The Paper Studio)
  • Distress Oxides in these colors (Ranger)
    • Black Soot, Worn Lipstick, Dusty Concord
  • Peacock Feathers Distress Ink (Ranger)
