We're on challenge #29 over at CSAYL and this week the challenge is being hosted by Vicki of Summerthyme Studio. She wants us to use the 'spotlight' technique on our Christmas cards. This is a very easy technique, one of my favorites, so I was anxious to get some time to myself to stamp. I had planned on stamping Tuesday night but was distracted by some very cute fox kits. Want a peek at them?

Arent they adorable? How can a girl stamp when she's got those cute little creatures to marvel over? :0) You can see more pictures on my photo blog.

Back to stamping....I finished up my card this morning. A very basic, simple(ha! my keyword again) Christmas card using a favorite set of mine. Here is what I came up with:

Supplies used(all supplies Stampin'Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps-Christmas Carolers,Print Pattern
Paper-Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Ink-Basic Gray, Creamy Caramel
Accessories-Blender pen, SU watercolor crayons, Chocolate Chip ribbon,sponge, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch



  1. Hey Lisa,
    Nice job on the card.......I don't seem to remember that set, is it SU?
    I never thought to outline a spot light with cardstock!
    Wow I can't believe how close you got to the the pictures!

    Happy Stamping!
