Stampin’ Up! Wonder of Christmas Watercolor Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Wonder of Christmas stamp set to create a watercolor Christmas card to share today.


My card design was inspired by Mojo Monday 471.


And the colors for my card were inspired by Stamp Ink Paper #71.  Not exactly Christmas colors, but I think that they work with this image!  🙂


I started by adhering a Delicate White Doily to a panel from the Presents & Pinecones DSP with SNAIL.  I trimmed the excess doily off and then adhered the DSP to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to a Delightful Dijon card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped the angel image from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on a panel of Watercolor Paper.  I wet the entire background with just water and an Aqua Painter and then added a light wash of Delightful Dijon ink.  I used Mint Macaron ink and an Aqua Painter to add color to the dress and shoes and then added a touch of Cajun Craze ink with the Aqua Painter for the hair.  I used Pink Pirouette ink and an Aqua Painter to add color to the skin and then used the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to color the crown.


I covered the angel wings with Gold Wink of Stella and then added Clear Wink of Stella to the banner.  I let the watercolored panel dry completely and then adhered it to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive.  I adhered the layered watercolored panel to the card front with SNAIL and then punched the end of a strip of Presents & Pinecones DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and I adhered it over the edge of the card with SNAIL.


I cut stars from Gold Glimmer Paper with the smallest Stars Framelits Dies and the star from the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.  I adhered the die cut stars to the card front with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.


I stamped the sentiment from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a Whisper White panel and then stamped the star image in Delightful Dijon ink (stamped off once) over it on the inside of the card.

  1. The way you used these colors do work for me for a Christmas theme. The mint macaron really reminds me of old time Christmases, paired with the Angel – awesome Amy!

  2. Love your interpretation of the design challenge and all the pretty colors you have pulled together!
