Multi-Step Christmas Lights

Good morning!  We're home safe and sound after a wonderful weekend in Pennsylvania at Stamping Around PA!  Seriously, I think this was our best event yet - the location, the people, the projects . . . just fabulous!!  And since today is Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday I am going to share my class projects with you.  My class was generously sponsored by KSS.  We used Multi-Step Christmas Lights and took a more basic approach in the class.  Since many attendees had never used Kitchen Sink Stamps (but we did have several loyal KSS customers who were most helpful to the other attendees!) we made each card step-by-step so that everyone could master the technique of multi-step stamping.  Everyone's cards came out so great!

So here are the three cards we made.  On this first card we stamped the bulbs on scrap paper (good way to practice!) and then cut them out and added them to our card using foam adhesive.  The bulbs also have a layer of Glossy Accents added to make them shine! 

For the second card we stamped the Step 1 solid image of the bulb on the card base to create a "background."  Then used the tiny little solid light bulb stamp to make a little string of lights around the sentiment.  For the string I simply drew that in first in pencil, stamped the lights and then traced over the pencil with a brown marker.

The final card was pretty simple again but gave us great practice multi-step stamping!  I love the look of the pretty line of colored bulbs.  To add the silver cording I poked holes above the bulbs and threaded the cording in and out. 

I have to run now, but I'll pop back later and add the color recipes for the bulbs!  Have a wonderful Monday!  Be sure to visit the other KSS Crew members for more holiday inspiration!!
