Wedding Affaire Lamp Shade

For our big Wedding Affaire on Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot  I chose to make Crystal Goblet Lamp Shades. I first made the pattern in the shape and length that I want the shade to be. I used velumn to for the shade it self. To hold the ends of the shade together I used Tear-ific tape. It really holds well. Using the heart Cuttlebug Folder I dry embossed the heart in the middle of the shade. I made the cross hatch with using the pergamano technique. The K is cut out of Core'dinations gemstone with the Jasmine cartridge. I sanded the K to give it a softer look. The cute little butterflies are cut out of the Core'dinations pearls paper.

I used the MS Pop Up Butterfly punch. They are the "cast off" pieces which left me a wonderful border for latter use. (LOL) I found this wonderful lace with pearls weaved through it at Joann's in the material section. Using the Tear-ific tape I laid it all a long the bottom of the shade then placed the lace over tape. I then cut the little pearls out of the lace and used them in the middle of my butterflies. If you use real candles you will want to spray a retardant on the paper so it won't catch on fire. I found it here. If you use battery operated candles it will be fine. To finish it off I added a pretty little bow around the base of the Goblet. Hope this inspires you to try one. If you would like to get the pattern for my shade. Please send me a message.  I'll be out of town untill Tuesday June 22, but I'll get it right to you when I get back!

Hi Wanda, So glad I got the opportunity to pop on over. I've had time to browse some of your earlier posts and WOW so much inspiration you've been sharing. I'll just comment on a couple of them thou but know that there was so many wonderful creations.
The wine candle lamps are just perfect, so pretty and I could see them on any bridle table or even the cake table. I liked the letters used and thought that this could be personalized by the initals of the happy couple. Stunning Creation.
*Giggles* I like recycling and totally adore the pinic caddy.
Your tutorial on Embroidery was very well explained and I found it very useful. My daughter is a scrapbooker and her favourite embellishment is to do hand stitching, so I'm passing on the link to her. Great job and I couldn't believe it was your first tutorial.
I look forward to seeing more of your work/creations.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
all. But think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website
could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Good blog!
