Christmas Lights With All The Colors!!!

Happy Wednesday!!! Yesterday in class I did a poll on whether you prefer white or colored Christmas Lights. It was about 50/50. So now I’m asking all of you! Christmas lights with all the colors or just white lights??? Let me know in the comments below!

Christmas Lights With All The Colors,

This was another fabulous card idea that I got at our Vacation Stamping School event in August! I changed it up a smidge and LOVE IT!!! There is a little technique on this card that I just wish you could see it better. Each of the lights have a bit of twinkle to them. I watercolored them with Wink of Stella! Yeah! That’s a thing. Just pick up the ink with the brush like you would an Aqua Painter and paint on the color and shimmer at once! Amazing!

I started with a Daffodil Delight card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the string of lights from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set. It was stamped in Stazon Black Ink since I watercolored the bulbs. Using the Wink of Stella Brush, I dabbed it into some ink and then brushed on color. A little shimmer and a little color all in one!

Christmas Wreath,

For the focal point, I added a strip of the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper. Then I punched out a 2-1/4″ Call Me Clover circle. Using the wreath image from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set, I stamped it in Call Me Clover Ink. To get that full look, I stamped it, inked it again and stamped a little to the left of the first one. Then I stamped again but a little lower than the first one and a little to the right from the first one. This makes the wreath look full! I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

Coloring with Wink of Stella,

I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and added it to the wreath. Don’t forget to stamp Bright on the inside of the card! To finish it off, I added some Red Rhinestones for holly berries and a little knot of Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon! All the shimmer and shine!!!

    • I think I’m more of a white lights girl. I like that simple look for the lights because our tree is so full of cute little ornaments from Hallmark over the years. Toys, disney characters, bells, and so much more! We had those big colored one growing up though! ~Laura
