IBS Release Week Day Three - Festive Greetings

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to Day Three of Release Week at Inspired by Stamping! Today's stamp set is Festive Greetings. This is a 19-piece stamp set that includes Christmas sentiments and images.

Let's get right to my card:

I had so much fun stamping the Christmas light bulbs. They 'take me back' to when I was a kid and we decorated the front of the house with the large light bulb strands. Do they even exist any more? OK, enough reminiscing. 

I stamped the bulbs, from the Festive Greetings stamp set, and die-cut them with the smallest of the Fancy Label Dies 2. The matting layers were cut with the second smallest die. The sentiment was die-cut with the banner die from Fancy Label Dies 3. After assembling the card, I thought the sentiment should of been stamped in black rather than red. What do you think?

Here is the inside:

I kept it simple by stamping the light stand and one bulb. The Festive Greetings stamp set includes two options for the bulb-a single outline image that can be colored and a solid bulb plus a separate socket.

Now it is time for you to celebrate Release Week and visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog. Each day this week a new stamp set will be revealed. What is Release Week without Blog Candy?!?!? Joanna is generously giving away a $25 gift certificate to the Inspired by Stamping On-Line Store each day, Monday through Thursday, and a $50 gift certificate on Friday! You may comment on the Inspired by Stamping Blog and/or any of the Designers' Blogs to be eligible. Each winner will be announced the following day on the Winner's Page.
