Simon Says.........Anything But a Card


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "Anything But a Card", and we are using We R Memory Keepers products. 

I chose some ombre glassine papers and made a winter luminary:

supplies: We R Memory Keepers Oh Goodie! Ombre glassine paper pack, tall glass vase, Hero Arts Layering Snowflake dies, tall pillar candle

And another picture with the candle lit:

These snowflakes dies make a partial cut, so that everything remains attached.  Since I have a cuttlebug which cuts only 6" wide at a time, I needed to trim my glassine to that width, and I also added a 2nd width of 2 1/2" at the bottom.  The top panel was cut randomly, and on the bottom one I lined up the medium sized snowflakes.  After making my cuts, the snowflakes  were pulled outward, and then I secured the glassine strips at the back of my luminary.

Wouldn't a group of 3 of these in different heights make a pretty table centerpiece?

There are 6 colors to choose from in this pack.  I chose the aqua, but I think this would be fun to do in green using the new Simon Partial Cut Leaves, or in any of the other colors with flower dies!

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher
