Color Tutorial for Kitchen Sink Christmas Light Stamps

I am not in any way affiliated with Kitchen Sink Stamps, but I do LOVE their product line!!! The stamps are made of excellent quality clear material, and they are wonderful to use for stamp projects.

I just ordered the Christmas Lights, and have been spending some time playing with the colors. I now have worked out Stampin' Up ink colors to use to make the Christmas lights look awesome!

**Disclaimer - Yes, Stampin' Up is re-working their stamp line, and I will add some of the newer colors in this set of recipes eventually. Some of the new colors are already in these 'recipes', as you will see.

**Disclaimer #2 - Yes, this looks like an incredible amount of work - it's not! This stamping actually goes very quickly.

OK! After you have ALL that stamping done.... the only color you need now is Black!
For step 5, just stamp black for the threads and filaments. On another piece, I did add some Brilliance Silver ink to the very bottom for the threads.

My plan for this sheet? One Sheet Wonders, of course! These will make great backgrounds for Christmas cards!
