BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY: How to make a Stained Glass Tea Light Lantern Card


Welcome to my Stamp It Demonstrator’s Group Fall Blog Hop. We’re all really excited to unveil our projects, and announce a new contest give-away (below).  To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.

My project for today’s blog hop is this super cool tea light lantern card. It’s not just a card, it’s a work of art. It folds flat, and when you open it and pop in the tea light it glows. I created with the Stampin Up Graceful Glass suite: Painted Glass stamp set, Stained Glass framelit dies and Graceful Glass velum.

    I used to work at a Christian preschool. At Christmas I had all the students, ages 2 1/2 to 5 yrs old make a stained glass tree ornament from the stamp in the Gentle Peace stamp set. I stamped it on vellum had them randomly color a piece of white card stock and then pasted the vellum on top. Then I would cut it out and put a ribbon on it to hang. On the back I stamped the “for unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given”.
