I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Magic stamp set to create my card to share today. I’ve been having a lot of fun watercoloring the images from the Holiday Catalog! Here is another one. 🙂
My card design was loosely based on Mojo Monday 463. The card was supposed to be tall and skinny but I have a hard time with those so I just used the sketch for a standard A2 card…and I left off the banner because I couldn’t get it to work with the other patterns. So I guess that I sort-of made up my own sketch! 🙂
I started by adhering a panel from the Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack to a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock with SNAIL. I wrapped a strand of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
I wrapped a strand of Garden Green Baker’s Twine (from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack) around the panel twice and then tied a bow with a Mini Jingle Bell strung through it. I adhered the layered panel to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a smaller panel from the Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack to a panel of Garden Green card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the image and sentiment from the Christmas Magic stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on a panel of water color paper. I used Soft Sky ink and an Aqua Painter to do a light watercolor wash over the background of the watercolor panel.
I used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crumb Cake and Delightful Dijon Markers to color the sign and wreath image and I used my Aqua Painter to paint over the colored areas to remove the marker lines and soften the colors. I let the panel dry completely, then adhered it to a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive and to a panel of Garden Green card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a little Clear Wink of Stella over the snow areas and then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Magic stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White card stock panel. I inked the jingle bell image in Delightful Dijon, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it on the Whisper White panel before adhering it inside the card.

Another super card. Love how you mixed the DSP patterns – I’m always kind of a-skeered to do that! Perfect, Amy! 🙂
Thanks Mary! I try to mix the more muted patterns with a more bold pattern and that seems to work. 🙂
Really beautiful! I agree about the papers, so perfect together. I love that wash you did on the watercolor panel. I like your take on the sketch. I am never good at the tall and skinny sketches!
Thanks Jari! 🙂
