I discovered this today while playing around with the text on SAI. So I made a tutorial for people that are new to SAI! :D

I can assist you here~

Write the text in basic black text and follow the tutorial up to pasting it into the image as a new layer.  Then go to Layer and click on Luminance to Transparency.  It takes all the values and converts them into various alphas (anything white is now transparent, anything black remains opaque, and the values in between black and white are the appropriate levels of transparency).  Next click Preserve Opacity on your layer section, and fill it in with white, and you're good!

You can also do this to do any other color you may need.
