Nativity Stain Glass Luminary

It's time for the Wednesday Inspiration at the Heartfelt Creations Blog and a new release celebrating Christmas in July!  Be sure and stop by the HFC blog to check out all of the new goodies!

For my project this week, I made a luminary, a candle holder to show off the sweet images from the new O Holy Night Collection.  For directions on making the luminary, I found this tutorial on the Splitcoaststampers site.  I changed the tutorial a tad to add rectangle panels made with the two smallest Eyelet Rectangle & Basics dies to create a frame for each of the three sides.  Three vellum panels slightly larger than the rectangle openings were cut out and the nativity, shepherds, and Bethlehem images were heat embossed in black, colored with markers and blended with a Tombow blending marker.  The completed vellum panels were glued inside the luminary.

The angel was heat embossed on water color paper and colored with the markers.

Poinsettias from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and Sparkling Poinsettia sets were stamped in MFT Wild Cherry.  Tiny poinsettias from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters also were stamped in Wild Cherry, all were cut out with corresponding dies.  The stamens were sponged with Buttercup and yellow prills were added to the centers of the tiny poinsettias.

A large poinsettia was added to the top of the box with holly stamped in black and colored with markers and a dove blender.

Two pine cones from the Silent Night Scroll set were stamped in Rich Cocoa and colored with markers and a tiny poinsettia added on top.

Add a battery operated tealight.
