Ok, it's confession time. I adore Christmas lights. The soft glow of the lights on the tree or on the mantle makes me so happy. So when Teri Anderson proposed the new String of Lights stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Lights Border Die, I was all in. Both the stamp set and die were designed to work just fine by themselves. And they are even better together. You can purchase the stamps and die separately. Or for the next several days you can save some money when you buy the stamp and die bundle.
I hope you'll check out this 1-minute intro video and get inspired by these projects from the TT designers!
When you are working with a classic image, such as Christmas lights, it often works well to keep things simple. On this card, Dana Joy used white cardstock, the stamps, and black ink. Then she used makers to add color to each stamped Christmas light. What an easy way to make a DELIGHTFUL card!
Oh my stars... this card by Emily Leiphard to STUNNING! She also used white cardstock, just the stamps, and black ink. But she added some amazing details such as embossing the card base with the Mandela Maker crafting dies. Here's a link to Emily's blog post where she shares more information about how she made it!
Are you wondering how Kymona Tracey made these tangled and overlapping strings of lights? She stamped the first string of lights and then did some masking. Kymona has some additional details and pictures on her blog!
The perfect Christmas package would not be complete without a gift tag. Dana Kirby stamped the String of Lights image off the edges of white cardstock tags and added sentiments for the same stamp set. Then she layered her stamped pieces onto some patterned paper to make these ADORABLE tags.
Want to make your Christmas lights glow? Jill Dewy Hawkins started with black cardstock and stamped a single string of Christmas lights. Then she used pencils to add color inside the lights and some subtle color around their edges to make them glow. You can visit Jill's blog for more details about how she made this card!
When Teri proposed the String of Lights stamp set, I didn't think about how it might work in a planner. I just imaged the image and sentiments on cards and tags. But look what Latisha Yoast did. She used them in her planner. Latisha shared more details on her blog!
I'm sure many of you noticed this colorful card in the intro video. Teri Anderson used the Christmas Lights die to make a stencil and to add the string of lights along the border of her card. She finished the card with a sentiment from the String of Lights stamp set. Here's a link to her blog post which includes more info plus another lovely Christmas lights card!
Wow... look at this DELIGHTFUL card by Dana Kirby. She used the Christmas Lights Border die to die cut out several colors of cardstock. Then she die cut out the white cardstock pieces and placed the colorful bulbs and black strings and socket pieces back into place. With all the different colors of bulbs, she could make a bunch of the same card by just switching where she puts the different colors of bulbs.
I hope you enjoyed seeing all these projects! Tena, our CFO, hasn't decided how long she's going to be offering the discount on the bundled String of Lights stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Lights Border Die so if you want them, get them while you can!
