The new stamps include two large sets:

Two small sets:

My first sample today was created with the Christmas Lights Multi Step Clear Stamps mini set! What a value this delightful set is. It includes the 5 layered lightbulb in two sizes as well as the wonderful sentiment! And if you look closely at the above link, you will see that it also includes a small and a tiny one layer lightbulb! How fun!!

I used Garden Green card stock from Stampin' Up and my Meadow Green Bic Mark It to create the sockets and wire for this strand of lights. The card base is white PaperTrey Ink card stock.

The bulbs were stamped as follows using Memento Inks:

Red Bulb: 4-Rhubarb Stalk, 3-Lady Bug, 2-LadyBug stamped off once, 1 Lady Bug stamped off twice, 5-Rhubarb Stalk

Blue Bulb: 4-Danube Blue, 3-Bahama Blue, 2-Bahama Blue stamped off once, 1-Bahama Blue stamped off twice, 5-Danube Blue

Yellow Bulb: 4-Cantaloupe, 3-Dandelion, 2-Dandelion stamped off once, 1-Dandelion stamped off twice, 5-Cantaloupe

Purple Bulb: 4-Grape Jelly, 3-Lilac Posies, 2, Lilac Posies stamped off once, 1-Lilac Posies stamped off twice, 5-Grape Jelly

Orange Bulb: 4-Potter's Clay, 3-Tangelo, 2-Tangelo stamped off once, 1-Tangelo stamped off twice, 5-Potter's Clay

Green Bulb: 4-Cottage Ivy, 3-Bamboo Leaves, 2-Cottage Ivy stamped off once, 1-Cottage Ivy stamped off twice, 5-Cottage Ivy

To get the sparkle and shine, I finished by stamping layer 1 using Versamark over each lightbulb and embossing them with clear embossing powder. Last but not least, I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black.

How would you like to have a chance to win some of these delightful sets? Well, Lisa has designed a wonderful sketch challenge that gives you the chance to do just that!!

I tied a silver bow through each ornament hanger and added three flat red bubbles.
