A Thanksgiving Center peice



OK so I'm going a bit overboard with these Lumiere's! I just keep getting new ideas. The instructions are as follows.
Paper 12X8 sheet of Pumpkin pie, 11X5 1/2 sheet of Always artichoke, 11X4 1/4 sheet of Always Artichoke, vellum, River rock, and designer series papers

Stamps Stem silhouettes, Sanded, With gratitude,

Ink Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Brown Stazon, River Rock, Purely Pomegranate

Accessories-Jute, Clear embossing powder, versa mark, 1 1/4 inch punch and scallop punch.

I scored card stock at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2, 10. I used a 1 1/4 circle punch to make the windows. Just center the punch on the paper going all the way in and punch hole for window. Stamp the top half of the Pumpkin Pie card stock with Pumpkin Pie ink using the sanded background. Then using the flowers from Stem silhouettes set use Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, and and river rock ink to decorate the bottom half of card stock. Follow the same procedure for smaller Lumiere's . But just stamp sanded background on outside of card stock with always artichoke. Then follow the same procedure as above for the windows for all four size. I then punched holes in scrap river card stock, leaving enough room to punch with scallop punch to create the window frame.
It is much easier to do it this way than to try and center after punching the scallop circle. Glue scallop frames to card stock. Now cut vellum for the windows. Using brown stazon stamp flowers from Stem silhouettes set on all sheets. Glue to wrong side and then fold and glue scored sides of Lumiere. Decorate with designer paper and jute.

Leaves-Using Pumpkin Pie, ink leaves from With Gratitude set and then roll edges with Purely Pomegranate ink and then stamp on to very vanilla and scrap river rock card stock . Cut out leaves and ink with versa mark and emboss with clear embossing powder. When embossing curl and hold leaf till it cools. This gives the leaves a realistic look. Use leaves to decorate the outside of Lumiere's. Thanks for looking! Virginia
