Hi Everyone! I want to show you the card I made with the new A Savior stamp set. This set works so well with the acetate stained glass technique. I used a lot of our beautiful glitters on this card. They are listed below.

I stamped on a piece of acetate using Staz On ink. I used Brushable glue in each section of the image and added glitters one at a time. To see full instructions on how to make this card, please click here.

Here is a view of the inside of the card.

On July 3 one Grand-Prize Winner will be selected from the comments left on the designers' blogs listed below. The Grand Prize Winner will receive their choice of:

1) all the new rubber stamp sets
2) all the new digital stamps and digital stamp sets.
