Making Christmas Bright is a new stamp set that is in the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. It is a cute stamp set that has a matching punch called Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. If you buy them both in a Bundle you can save 10%. Plus, there is another stamp set in the Holiday Catalog that fits the punch. It is called Making Every Day Bright and is on page 47. If you buy the punch you have to have this set too. It has penguins, bunny, balloons, feathers and more that can be cut out using the Christmas Bulb Builder punch too.
I used my Stamparatus to make the background of this card. I put the bulb ribbon stamp on it and raised and lowered the plates to make the lines. You could do this by hand but the Stamparatus makes it so much easier and has much more accurate spacing. Then I colored all the little bulbs using my Stampin’ Write Makers in Blueberry Bliss, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch. I cut the sentiment out with the Starburst Punch and layered it over a piece of Blueberry Bliss cardstock cut out using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies. I hand cut out the banner.
