Stamp to Share International Design Team Blog Hop | Making Christmas Bright

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to this months Stamp to Share International Design Team Blog Hop. We are bringing you lots of Christmas creations as we lead up to the festive season using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle from the Stampin' Up!® 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

If you haven't hopped with us before, Stamp to Share is a monthly blog hop featuring Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from the Stampin' Up! markets around the world. Once a month we feature projects made with one Stampin' Up! bundle to inspire you.

This is such a fun set with it's play on the Christmas/Fairy Lights and one of the most fabulous thing about this bundle is that there is a co-ordinating punch to punch out those fun lights. I love the sets that have the co-ordinating, beautiful, detailed and delicate dies but the sets that have a co-ordinating punch make it just so quick and easy stamp and put your card together. Stamp and punch and your done.

I've made the string of lights image as the main focus for both my cards today. I've stamped the string of lights with Versamark, on both cards, and then heat embossed them with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. Once the embossing powder cooled I coloured the lights, using an Aqua Painter, with the colours  Call Me Clover, Real Red and Daffodil Delight. This colour combo is so fun for a bright take on the traditional Christmas colours.

When stamping the string of lights, the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool is your best friend to line up the stamp and then to evenly space the image across the card front. I love the string of lights running vertical down the card

To accent both cards I used the larger light image from the set and also used Call Me Clover 1/8" (3.2 Mm) Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Metallic Thread and the All is Bright DSP.  

I hope that I've given you another idea to use with this stamp set and given you some creative inspiration.
Next on the hop is the fabulous Sandi MacIver. Please welcome her back after her break from the Stamp to Share team.
