Wine Glass Lamp Shade

Today I have a parchment wine glass lamp shade to show you.
I used the following materials
This Pattern
Vellum or parchment, I used pearlescent vellum from Joanna Sheen
Stamps – Whiff of Joy Christmas Candle and Christmas Swirls Collection
Versamark Ink
Gold Detail Embossing Powder
Anti-Static bag or sheet
Embossing tool and firm mat (I used a piece of vinyl flooring as it’s just the right density to emboss on)
Scalloped and straight scissors
Stamp Positioner and dark ink
Wine Glass and battery operated “candle”


Print off the template, cut out and trace on to vellum.  I used scalloped scissors along the bottom edge of the shade.  Ink up the candle stamp with a dark ink and stamp on to stamp positioner.  Rub the vellum with an anti-static bag/sheet to ensure that the embossing powder does not stick to the vellum apart from on the stamped images.  Line up the image on the stamp positioner where you want the main image to be stamped. 


Ink up the candle image with Versamark ink and stamp on to the vellum.  Using the small swirl from the Christmas Swirls set stamp a border along the top and bottom using Versamark Ink.  Emboss with gold detail embossing powder and heat set.


I then flipped the shade over and using the embossing tool embossed the back of the image gently till the vellum turned white.  This really makes the image pop.  I also embossed along the bottom scalloped edge to highlight the scallops.

One wine glass candle shade.  All in all it took under 10 minutes to make.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas
