• Kari VanNoy

    Colored lights!! Love them.

  • LC

    We mostly use clear lights but have a small tree with colored lights and sentimental ornaments too. The projects and products are outstanding! Awesome first day of the new release sneak peek!

  • Bev Karolak

    We use both….clear lights on our tree and coloured lights outside! Awesome release! 🙂

  • Mikel Adkins

    Colored lights of course! So much more fun! I love the Elf Grumplings, they make me laugh!

  • Elise Smith

    I love the card with the gingerbread house and grumpy elf ???? Colored lights are the best! They make me happy!

  • Lori Manning

    Colored for sure!!! I love all the sights and sounds of Christmas.

  • Marisa Anderson

    Both! We have clear on our tree and colored on our house. But I love the look of clear lights under the snow because they make the snow sparkle and it looks like a crystal wonderland.

  • karenladd

    I love clear lights because they look like twinkling stars! That little Grumpling need a big hug and a mug of cocoa, ha!

  • sarah

    Colored lights always! Love the Snowman Shaker die, Skinny Mini Dies, Santa’s Helpers and light embossing folder. This is such an amazing release, too cute!

  • Super Stick Chick

    I’m love colors. Fabulous cards and release, that wreath is dreamy.

  • Shirley L.

    Clear lights are my choice. The clear lights make all the colors on the Christmas tree brighter and glisten. It’s like magic, and I can’t wait to put up our tree and our decorations since Christmas is my favorite, favorite time of the year. It’s so festive and so much love showing everywhere.

  • Karen

    Clear lights are my very favorite! They remind me of brightly shining stars.

    Your products are so versatile. I really like the idea of using a portion of the border as a focal point of the snow globe.

  • Jean Bullock

    Lights? If I have to choose between them I would say colored. But actually I like a mix of colored AND clear.

  • Julie L

    The Elf Grumplings are too funny!!! Love them!

    I love colored lights – makes it even more festive!

  • Mary

    I love this Christmas release!Problem is……I want it ALL! To answer your question, I use clear lights. I love the way that my tree decorations look with the clear and when I take photos of my tree and ornaments they always look better with the clear lights. 🙂

    Smile BIG! 🙂

  • Christy Q

    Love that wreath and the sentiment on the second card made me laugh out loud – love it!!

    We’re a mostly clear light household with a few random colored ones thrown in the mix here and there.

  • shartl

    Wow, I am in love with that snow globe shaker card! The clear sequins are so fun. We love clear AND colored lights at our house. I put clear ones on the tree, and colored ones outside for the kids!

  • Terri

    What a great collection! It makes me smile to think of all of the fun things I could create. As for lights, mostly I vote for clear…except for the folks in my neighborhood who have the Griswald spirit of Christmas! I LOVE their colorful lights.

  • Linda F.

    I’m partial to the clear lights… think they look classy! Love your new products… and the cards are so cute… really like the shaker cards.

  • LIZ D

    You’re getting me into the festive spirit. Love shaker card with snowman scene. I love clear lights in my greenery and tree but I have to have some colored light around just for my husband. Looks like everyone else is the about the same way. House divided. 🙂

  • NC_Donna

    BOTH!! And LOTS of them!! I love twinkle lights any way, any color! Awesome release!

  • Sue McRae

    I am so loving the wreath cutting plate! I’m a colorful gal who like colorful lights!

  • Maria F.

    I like clear lights on my tree, but definitely colored lights outside. We (ok, my husband), drape green lights over PVC rods outside our window to resemble a tree. He adds colored lights for a punch of color.

  • Linsey

    Lights: hubby-colored; me-clear/white
    Look at all this festive holiday inspiration!!!! I can’t wait!!!!

  • Carrie

    I love the new release! I love to use white lights… I think they have a classic look.

  • Becca Yahrling

    Fabulous sneak peek! I use both clear and colored lights, but love the colored more. Just more festive I think.

  • Laura K

    Fabulous new dress and stamp.
    I love coloured lights.

  • Kimberly Rendino

    Oh my goodness, what awesome new holiday goodies!! As for clear or colored….it is SOOOO hard to pick! So I don’t! I have one tree with colored lights and one tree with clear. Solves that dilemma, lol!!!

  • Jennifer Langton

    I always string my tree with clear. I find that they give my ornaments more of a spotlight. I do have a plain pallet tree for the outside with colored lights though. I like color outside!
    When I was young we had a set of lights with giant pastel globe lights. They came from my Grandfather’s travels in the Navy. They were gorgeous. I still have them but they are to dangerous to use. I wish I could though.

  • Audrey

    Our tree and mantle have multicolored lights, but outside we have clear stars.

  • Natalie Godfrey

    I love them both but now that I am older I want everything to match so CLEAR is what I go for.

  • Laurie B

    Definitely colored !! I like lots of variety!! Fun new products!! Can’t wait to create with them!!

  • Dianne

    I like both so I have to set up multiple trees.

  • Julieann

    For sure clear lights, when you put up 7 full trees you need to be able to change out sets if the do not work.

  • JodyM

    Both colored and white lights. I like to mix them up and I choose something different each year. I like the white lights when I am going to a more elegant or peaceful theme and the colored lights for my brighter bolder themes.

    Love that wreath die!

  • Barbara T

    Color lights are my favorite.

  • Vivian Bowers

    I like clear. I put up 4 trees and I feel the ornaments stand out better. My one tree has all glass ornaments. Love the new release.

  • Kathy J in Ellicott City

    I love colored lights, but my husband is a die hard white only. So our big tree has white and the small tree in the den has not only colored but m&m covered colored. I love it!

  • Arianna Barbara

    Oh wow!!!! Such amazing sneak peek!!! Can’t wait to see all!!!
    I love clear lights!

  • Janet Ingraham

    Great releases. I prefer clear lights outside and colored lights on the inside tree.

  • Diane B

    colored on the tree and clear outside

  • Kirsty Vittetoe

    Clear light for me! but DH likes blue, so we have blue for the front yard and the rest of the house in clear!
    Beautiful collection, perfect for the holiday!

  • Janet Sisk

    On my Christmas tree I have clear lights, but we have both colored and white outside our house. I love both, but in different ways. Love the cards today and can’t wait to see more. Thanks for the inspiration and chance to win. 😀

  • Laura Holt

    I love clear lights – they let the colorful ornaments stand out. Colored lights compete with them.

  • Sandy Griffin

    It has to be clear for me. I just love little twinkly lights in the trees. They give me such a magical feeling where everything is possible. Who knows, maybe the deer walking around the corner of my house will have a red blinky nose. Love the new products especially the wreath plate. It’s going to be a must have.

  • Susan Weida

    I love colored lights myself!! Reminds me of my childhood and all of the colored lights my Dad always loaded the tree with.

  • Chris DuBois

    Love clear lights. They remind me of twinkling stars. All Blue lights are cool to.

  • Chris

    Clear lights just remind me of twinkling stars. All blue lights are cool too.

  • Marsha S.

    I definitely like colored lights! Looks like a wonderful release! Christmas is my favorite time for crafting!

  • vickie tharp

    so many cute dies and stamps. I want them ALL!! Look out budget . . .
    I LOVE the festive feel of colored lights – they add a heartwarming charm that reminds me of my childhood.

  • Maria B

    The more color the better!

  • Pat McCleary

    I like clear lights outside, on wreaths & in windows, & colored lights for the tree. Love the wreath cutting plate & playful patterns papers. HoHoHo!

  • Tricia T

    Definitely clear, unless I am coloring thwm for a card, then they have to be colored so you can see they are lights! ????

  • Jennifer snellen

    I love the colored lights on my tree and on the house

  • Kim Stevens

    I use to do clear but have switched to colored lights. Love all the color for the grandchildren!!

  • Brenda Shrader

    Lovin’ the 1st Day release!!! Colored lights most definitely!!

  • Heather I

    I like both clear and colored lights, clear lights inside on tree and colored lights outside. I’m very excited about the new Christmas stamps.

  • Maye M.L

    Like both depending on the area and mood I want to recreate. In love with this release. The penguin set is darling. Cheers

  • Colleen

    Clear lights on the tree! Colored lights everywhere else!

  • Tammy Hanson

    Love them both. Depends on what other decorations I am using. Silver and blue=clear lights. Traditional reds and greens=colored lights. Love this release. So many happy delightful images.

  • Denise Bryant

    Head over heels in love with these delightful elements for holiday creating! The Snowman Shaker is first on my list… and it goes on and on!
    Colored lights, please! Love them!

  • Cheryl

    Love, love, love all of your Christmas beauties. So much to choose from will make decisions tough!
    I like both kinds of lights….white inside and colored outside.

    • Cheryl

      Apologize here….my first comment did not appear to go through. My page kept saying SNAP…so I gave up, refreshed and commented again.
      Was not intentional to comment twice here.
      Changed comment because of frustration lol…kept saying I was repeating…why comment changed 😉

  • Cheryl

    Love, love, love all of your Christmas creations! So many items to choose from!
    I have always liked colored lights…hubby prefers clear lights…so we compromise. He gets clear lights on his tree and I have my own Wizard of Oz tree with colored lights!
    Colored lights for this girl!!

  • Julie L.

    I love the twinkle of the clear lights. I am over the top excited about this release after seeing the sneaks!

  • Gina Florencia

    Colored! My kids choice, I wish I can go white some day! Cheers….Gina F

  • Lisa Michael

    Living in California and Arizona all my life, I LOVE the colored lights on the outside of the house. When the weather is a balmy 70 degrees the lights at night can really remind you of the season. I love clear lights mixed with colored lights inside as the clear lights seem to make me think it is cold and frosty inside (I think that’s just my air conditioner!).

  • lisa808

    Fab inspiration!

    I’m a clear lights person.

  • Vicki Dillon

    I am a multi colored light gal. Love the new release–will have wish list at Stamp Joy!

  • Annette

    Clear lights, we let the ornaments add the color to the tree.

  • Linda Hedfelt

    I love both….the more lights the better!!!! Those sets are adorable!!

  • Amy Sonnemann

    I love white twinkle lights! They make everything look so elegant and beautiful.

  • Denise Ward

    BOTH! I love Christmas lights and have ALL my life. What we like to do is use multicolored lights inside the house (on the tree, the mantle, etc) and use clear lights outside so we can enjoy them even after Christmas is over.

  • Deb Davis

    I like clear lights as they reflect off the ornaments more and makes everything sparkle

  • Gloria

    I think colored lights are far more festive than clear lights. They help to uplift our spirit at this blessed time.

  • Gloria

    I think colored lights are by far more festive than clear lights. It helps to brighten our spirits at this blessed time.

  • Teresa Mikalouskis

    OMG! This release is so cute! I want them all! I love clear lights!

  • Erica

    There is lot thing I wart buy

  • Patt H.

    I love colored lights! They just make me smile when I drive down our street & see all the sparkly colors. (And when I look at our colorful tree without my glasses, the colors are even more beautiful, as I am pretty nearsighted!)

  • Erica

    There lot of thing I wart to buy on oct 7

  • Linda L

    I love the look of clear, twinkling lights as they accentuate all the colors in the ornaments hanging on our tree! LOVE the snowman shaker and tags!! Looking forward to the rest of the release!

  • Crafty Math Chick

    I love that pretty snow day background! Colored lights for this girl!

  • Angie VC

    I have two trees– one with each kind! Think you need both for the complete picture!

  • Bunny

    Clear. Also, I love the skinny mini borders. They are so cute.

  • Sue D

    Fabulous creations. I like clear lights.

  • Julie Learned

    How about both???? I decorate three trees in our home. One has white lights and the other two have colored! LOVE that they are all different but equally beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • storymusicgirl

    Clear lights, of course. And lots of them. 🙂

  • Sheryl Wilson

    Definitely clear. Then I can change my color theme without having to change all the lights too. And I don’t have to worry about spacing the colors to avoid globs of any one color…basically lazy.

  • Carla Hundley

    Really love that
    wreath in the frame
    die. Lots of great
    new items. I love
    colored lights,
    can look at them
    for hours!
    Carla from Utah

  • Laraine R

    Fabulous cards today! I like both clear & colored lights but I have been using clear the last few years.

  • Sharon D.

    I do like the look of both clear & colored lights, but I choose color for the fun, variety & cheeriness they bring. The colored lights go well with the variety of ornaments collected over the years. Clear lends an elegant look especially on a themed tree like my parents’. So many fun new products to play with this season! Love the inspiration projects! Beautiful!

  • Helen Gullett

    WOW… WOW… WOW! Totally it looks like Christmas here!
    We are a fan of Clear Lights for sure 🙂

  • Debra

    The new release stuff is amazing! We did clear lights on our tree indoors a few years ago and for the first couple of days it was ok. As time wore on, it felt like we were missing something, and we quickly tired of the clear lights, and said we would never use clear lights again. Colored for sure!

  • Isabel Z

    I am so excited for this release. I love Christmas and winter:-) My vote is for clear lights which I think are so pretty on a tree.

  • Michelle Laulu

    Cleat lights are what I prefer for Christmas. That way I can add any color decoration and it will go with the lights. I’m excited for Christmas and for this new release!

  • Angela Walters

    I always use clear light on my Christmas tree. I grew up with colored lights, however, so that always makes me think of our Christmas trees when I was a kid. So, basically colored and clear are fine with me! I’m just happy it’s Christmas!!

    This release looks great! I love the string of lights!

  • Pam Warden

    Clear lights on Christmas decorations in my house, but COLORED lights ALWAYS on my cards!!

  • Iris Esther López

    So many great cards. Reminds me I have to get started on my Christmas cards. Love the Grumplings, they are always so funny.

  • Jessica Bavier

    Colored!! I’m all about as much color and fun as possible! Love today’s sneak peeks! The penguin set and snowman shaker are my faves!! 🙂

  • Louise Wagner

    Definitely clear lights! Then I can add any color to the tree and it all matches. Back in the late 80’s I did a mauve, rose and white tree. I made most of the ornaments. It was beautiful! Sadly, the kiddos spazzed out for a “real” tree and I had to go back to traditional the following year. But I still had the clear lights! Heehee! (And I bought another smaller tree to use my mauve on.) Win-win! 🙂

  • ErikaS

    Everything looks so fun. It’s getting me in the Christmas mood! Clear lights are preferred in our house.

  • Lynne in NI

    Heeee love all these new goodies, but especially the grumpy elf!
    Definitely coloured lights on the tree for me, I got clear ones a few years ago, hated them and gave them to a friend!

  • Phyllis Freese

    Great new release with so many great Christmas dies and stamps. I love the look of clear lights , but I do use both in my home.

  • Lynn T

    Clear lights, for sure, as it’s easy to change up the color or the decorations that surround the lights. And, twinkling LEDs, too! What wonderful new products for Christmas already!! I see another long list building… 🙂

  • Karine Tatard Murray

    My preference would be colored lights ????

  • Amy Cooley

    I’m really more of a clear light gal, but colored is so pretty also. Especially some of the unique color combos they have out now. Really, the more lights the better!

  • annheidel

    I love clear lights the best. We get plenty of color from all the ornaments! 🙂 Some fun new products are coming in this release.

  • Beverly Perdue

    I love Christmas and I’m excited about this new release. My favorite lights are clear. I just love the look of the twinkled white lights.

  • Larissa Heskett

    We Do Both!! Colored on the Trees and Clear LED on the House!! I LOVE the Way it looks and we DON’T have to choose!! LOVING LOVING LOVING the New Release and the AMAZING Inspiration!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS RELEASE WEEK!! =)

  • Martha

    I am a color light person. My Christmas decorating and cards are full of color!

  • Teresa Kline

    clear lights for sure…I luv the idea(of days gone by..good ‘ole days) of colored lights but never use them and do not own them

  • Patti O

    That is always the big debate in our house. Last year I solved it when I found LED lights that switch from white to colored or even switch itself back and forth. Now whoever gets to the tree first gets their choice for the day.

  • Denise Parco

    Coloured lights outside, clear lights on the tree in the house, best of both!
    I really like the elegance of the wreath die, but can’t deny how cute that shaker snowman and snow globe card is!!
    Wonderful cards and great new releases!

  • CAROLYN Clabaugh

    I love clear lights on my tree so I can change up the colors on the tree decorations. And colored lights everywhere else!

  • Christine Dring

    What a fun release! I already have a list made of items I need! LOL! Love all of your fabulous cards! So cute! I love colored lights! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Kathy D

    Oh, I LOVE all of the sneak peaks today! Beautiful!

    Can I just say YES to lights?? I find clear and colored equally enchanting.

    (That being said, our tree and all of our outdoor lights are colored…hubby’s choice.)

  • Vivian C.

    The Elf Grumplings are a hoot. White or colored is a tough question. I love the festiveness of holiday lights whether they are white or colored. If I had to pick, I guess I would choose colored.

  • Tona

    Fabulous projects! I so love that wreath.
    Colored lights for me.

  • Lynn Gauthier

    I actually love both colored and clear lights; but, I think I will go with colored.
    Awesome cards. This is going to be an awesome Christmas release.
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Thordis

    Always coloured on the Christmas tree 🙂

  • Sabrina Radican

    Great cards!!! I loved colored!!

  • Gilda McCain

    I love colored lights. Great release today. That grumpy elf is too cute.

  • Andrea Shell

    Awesome release and fabulous inspiration! My husband likes colored lights, and I like clear, so we do both.

  • Rose Huddleson

    What a fun release! White lights are so elegant but I like colored for my tree!

  • carol

    My festive spirit is sky-rocketing in seeing this new release! The critters tangled in the Christmas lights have captured my heart, as has the lights embossing folder. Speaking of lights: coloured, please! Off to check out the DT’s magic…

  • Nancy D

    Clear lights inside on the tree and colored lights outside for me. Love the new release!

  • Michele K. Henderson

    I am crazy about that beautiful wreath! I love it! I love all kinds of lights–it depends on the tree. We have tiny red lights on our Christmas tree, and most of the ornaments are made of red or white glass. Then we have a little tree with a beach theme–clear lights on that one! I just LOVE lights during the holidays–all year long as a matter of fact!

  • KT Fit Kitty

    I can’t help it! I get so excited seeing all of the new holidays stamps and dies! That snow globe is a must-have! As for lights, I prefer clear! Can’t wait to see more of this release!

  • Cathy

    I love the clear lights, so magical! I’m loving’ the sneak peeks..can’t wait for the release! My favorite so far is the Do You Want to Build a Snowman die!!

  • Teresa Doyle

    Beautiful cards Taylor and the new release products are wonderful. I like coloured lights myself, so much more festive!

  • Leanne S

    Great release again. I prefer colored lights, that come on one color at a time, then all blink & repeat.

  • Juliana

    I’m loving the sneaks for the new release!
    My favorite are clear lights – as many as we can fit on the tree and still have room for the ornaments!

  • Jean Marmo

    Loving all the inlaid pieces!! We have clear lights! They seem serene to me.

  • Jennifer

    I LOVE Christmas, so this release makes my heart SOOOOOO happy! I am going to have to say clear…and also just LOTS of glitter and metals….

  • Donna Whitten

    Love all the festive new products! The cards are too cute! I have clear lights on my trees, but I also love the colored as well.

  • Eva Wierzbinski

    We are a house divided….I love clear lights and my husband likes color lights. So we compromise….clear lights on the tree and color lights on the wreath outside. It’s a win/win deal!!

  • KathyJH

    Colored lights! I love to have lots of color! Great release – love the wreath cutting plate and the snowy day backdrop! Oh – and if penguins could talk – so much fun!

  • Tracy

    I have to go with colored, love the colors, but not opposed to an elegantly decorated tree with clear lights, but colored are fun and festive!!

  • AJ Bodine

    I love everything so far about this release, it’s really getting me in the christmas spirit!! I love both, but favor colored, especially if they twinkle!

  • Noreen

    Lots of cute, fun ideas. I love the grumpy elf!

  • Evelyn

    Honestly, I love both. Most often we do clear on the trend colored outside!


    I was always a fan of the clear lights. Guess they remind me of the shining stars shining over Bethlehem.

  • Jackie Adair

    Ooooooh, me likey! I am definitely getting in the Christmas spirit now! Great new products for me to play with!!

  • Jen W.

    Okay so I pretty much want everything in this release! So much awesomeness!!

    As for lights – I know clear are classy but as I kid I loved coloured Christmas lights and they just feel more warm and cozy to me than the clear ones.

  • Susan Lang

    I like the colored lights. Add lots of personality to the tree. Some great dies here, but I am not surprised!

  • Lisa Reber

    Love the wreath die! Clear all the way, both inside and out!

  • Chris L

    Love the new release so far! And for lights–we use both, colored for the outside and clear for the inside!

  • Mary Holshouser

    I want colored lights. All of the colors are a part of
    the little elf looks like he’s had a bad day.
    fun release. Looking forward to seeing more.

  • Melissa

    I love clear lights! They sparkle so pretty on the tree. Great release!!

  • Judy Rowland

    OMG!! I can already tell this is going to be a super fun release!! I am IN LOVE!!

    My favorite holiday lights are colored, although my husband puts over 1,000 clear lights on my Christmas tree, which is an AWESOME sight!!

    I LOVE Christmas, so I am super excited about this release (but I always say that) ~ LOL!!
