Good Evening again! Kind of on a roll now so even with it late I wanted to get this posted. Here is a template card from Paper Crafts (Jan/Feb 2011). How adorable is this lamp card? So easy to put together too.
While away from my crafting, I not only perused many card creating magazines but I managed to purchase a few new supplies too, including the paper used for my lamp card from Crate Paper. Off The Wall Craftiness' challenge this week correlated very well with this paper. I also used a new embossing folder to create the texture of the lamp base. While it looks like a border punch for the lampshade base, I actually just cut out the edge of some of the DP paper that had a stamped scallop design to create the red ruffles. And, the photo does not pick it up, but I crimped the floral section of the lampshade to give it that ribbed lampshade texture. The top flower layer with the sentiment is a die traced and cut from a chipboard flower. I didn't like the look of the chipboard on the back of the flower so instead, I added a silk flower behind it. For a more authentic look, I added a small chain with a metal brad firmly wrapped around the end.
Stamps: Digital Sentiment - Squigglefly.
Paper: DP from Crate Paper. White cardstock.
Ink: Printer. Some Distress Ink on lamp base.
Extras: Stitched emboss folder; paper crimper; cream silk ribbon; silk flower; buttons, gem, chain and metal brad.
Well, hate to say it but it's lights out for me for now!
