Popping in to remind you of the challenge this month at The CAS Mix UP,
which is Faux Stained Glass........Hosted by the talented and creative Joanna.
Lots of inspiration and video links on the blog and the gallery is looking amazing.
It's our 3rd Birthday too, with prizes to be won.....
Here is my card......
I have used the Stained Glass Technique with Alcohol Inks,
Stamping and my choice is Die Cutting and Heat Embossing
The background has been stamped with a flower bouquet in black ink.
For the poppy colours I have used alcohol inks.
For the stained glass effect I have used glossy accents and several layers of black die cuts.
The last black die cut layer has been heat embossed several times to get it super shiny.
Finishing off with the sentiments, two skinny frames and a cute mini heart....
Thank you Gundi (from Papierelle) for being our wonderful guest designer this month.
Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery....

Stunning card Mac, love your gorgeous poppies.
Hi, Mac! GORGEOUS dual use of the SpotLight technique with the BW popped up images in the background, and the poppy superimposed on top of them. BRILLIANT design and so beautiful done in your stained glass technique with AIs! Thanks for the inspiration! hugs, de
Amazing card, my friend! Love this design. So classic with red, white and black. The black stamped bouquet in the background is stunning with the bright red poppy on top. So creative and beautiful. Love the skinny frames. A real WOW! card. xx
The flower turned out great! I really like how you did the background with the frames, too!
Great minds create a like! I literally just finished an alcohol ink inlay (in red!) using the same poppy die. I did not stain glass mine but your effect is gorgeous! Very nice. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.
Another wonderful creation Mac.. your layout is stunning and the AI poppies are simply beautiful. (I am putting my jealousy away now..... ha ha!!!)

Oh, I'm in awe of this card! It is so beautiful! Black and red look so sophisticated, and the black and white background adds a great deal of elegance.
Oh my, that red really stands out and is so impressive. I love the outline in black. It really makes the red pop.
I was so busy admiring the rest of your card that I completly missed seeing the two white frames until you mentioned them. That is a brilliant finishing touch to an already gorgeous card. . Hugs Mrs A.
This is fantastic, Mac! The AI faux stained glass poppy looks so vibrant and shiny, especially with the heat-embossed outlines. Love that you simply stamped a bouquet of flowers in black and added the skinny frames. Such an amazing design! I love it!
Wow, this poppy looks like a piece of glass enamel. Such great dimension and texture all in one die cut. Love how you added the stamping and the framing keeping our eyes focused on these gorgeous poppies.
Wow Mac, this card is just stunning! I love the black/white/red color combo. Makes for one elegant card! Love this design as well, it really draws the eye right in! Hugs, Brenda
Stunning, Mac. The vibrant AI colour is perfect for this technique. Using a black outline enhances it even more. Love the artsy background. Love it. xx

Oh Mac it's breathtaking! I adore the 'glass' poppy and the design is once again unique and stunning!
Wonderful design, I love the diecut frames in the background Mac and that you used black die cuts instead of the white.
Hi Mac, its been a while since I visited and I just wanted to say I have missed looking at your cards and will need to find a day just to stroll through. I love this wonderful creation, looks so eye catching with the vivid red flower in the stained glass look.Thank you so much for joining us at The flower Challenge xx Aileen DT
Another one of my favorites, Mac! This is striking & gorgeous!
I love the contrast of your card. The first look is the idea that it is a monochrome card with an amazing red poppy that stands out in the foreground. And this amazing Stainled glass effect ... This card is another work of art.
Gorgeous!! Thanks for playing along in the STAMPlorations CAS challenge!!
