Let's start by creating a new document. Set the dimensions of the canvas to 900x1200 px.
STEP-2 (Creating gradient background)
Double click on the Background layer to access Layer Style and add Gradient Overlay as I shown
Arrange colors in gradient Editor as shown and click OK
Background will look like this after adding Gradient Overlay
STEP-3 (Adding cloudy texture)
Create a new layer and set the background color BLACK and foreground color WHITE in the bottom of tool palate, then go to Filter > Render > Clouds. Change the blend mode to Overlay and reduce opacity to 50%.
STEP-4 (Creating glassy effect)
Create a new layer and Type your text with Horizontal Type Tool (T). I have chosen font Cooper Std. Size 225 pt.
Double click on the text layer to access Layer Style and make changes as shown
Then add inner shadow as shown below
Next add Outer Glow
Next add Bevel and Emboss
Next add Gradient Overlay
Then add Stroke
After adding all above styles the effect will look like this.
STEP-5 (Arranging text)
Duplicate the text layer and place it in such a way one overlays the other to witness the glassy effect
Now add your own text, I go with "GLASS"
STEP-6 (Create shadow)
Create a new layer, draw oval shape and go to Select > Modify > Feather (Alt +Ctrl + D) give feather radius 10 pix then fill it with BLACK color and keep this layer below the text layers.
STEP-7 (Creating mirror effect)
Duplicate all the text layers and merge them. Then with transform selection (Ctrl +T) flip vertically and place it below the original text as I shown.
Erase slightly at the bottom part using Eraser Tool (E) and reduce the opacity of the layer to 50%
STEP-8 (Adding special effect)
In a new layer using default brush Crosshatch4 with 50 px. Create star glow effect on text with white color as I shown.
