I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Brighten Your Day

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!
