I am a huge fan of stained glass; in fact we used to make lots of stained glass projects. That was way before I found stamping though! Anyway here is a card using a technique I am calling 'Sparkly Stained Glass'.
Aren't they pretty?
I made a video showing you how easy 'and fun' this technique is. I am using Blendabilities here which have now been discontinued. I am soooo sad! See the detailed explanation below to read why.
Unfortunately I used two products that you cannot get at this time; Blendabilities markers and the Butterfly Basics bundle.
The Butterfly Bundle is not available due to the dock workers strike. They just cannot get it in stock at this time. I certainly hope it will be back!
The Blendabilities have been removed from Stampin' Up''s product line. It's very unfortunate but I am also happy that Stampin' Up! has a high standard regarding their products. Here is a Q & A to explain:
Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.
Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended.
Q: Why did it take so long for Stampin’ Up! to discover this problem?
A: Over the months we’ve noticed quality issues with this product, but they were within normal tolerance. We’ve also received some great feedback and know that many of you have thoroughly enjoyed working with Blendabilities. However, when corrections and complaints became more and more frequent, we increased the sophistication of our quality testing. This led to discoveries that meant we had a serious problem with the product line. Although these are still great markers, our manufacturer is now reporting a 30 to 40 percent fail rate before they are shipped to Stampin’ Up!— which is unacceptable and below our standards.
Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?
A: Yes. These items will also be featured in this year’s 2015–2016 annual catalog.
***If you've purchased Blendabilities from me and found your product to be defective please let me know before June 15th and I will work with Stampin' Up! to be sure you're satisfied.
