Christmas Magic by Stampin’ Up Goes Beyond Christmas

Christmas Magic by Stampin' Up!
Christmas Magic rubberstamp set
from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog has been a favorite stamp set to work with this year, and although Christmas 2016 is past, I still have some cards for you to make use of this beloved rubberstamp set! The beautiful artwork in Christmas Magic by Stampin' Up! evokes thoughts of an old-fashioned Christmas and simpler times.  I used this set for a special class in December, my All Things English Tea & Crafts Night.  We had so much fancy fun with tea in china cups, tea sandwiches, and vintage projects featuring Christmas Magic rubberstamp set!  This is one of the projects we made–a thank you note, perfect to give after Christmas.

I wanted an old-fashioned, vintage look and did several things to achieve that.  Sponging with Soft Suede ink brings instant aging to any project.  I sponged the DSP to soften and age it and also sponged all the card stock pieces.  

The Delicate Doily is another old-fashioned touch, and I sponged it as well. I did just a little bit of coloring to highlight the wreath and signpost. It's not showing up in my photo, but there is a little Wink of Stella on the bow and wreath to bring a soft, shimmery accent to the colored images.  

Lastly, I used the Delightful Dijon Mini Striped Ribbon.  For the class I hosted, all attendees received a package of doilies, the roll of ribbon, and all supplies to make the projects.  This ribbon has a lovely, elegant look, and I think it's a bit of a hidden gem in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. Here, the dijon ribbon serves as another neutral to tie it all together.  Here are all the neutral papers I used:

  1. Sahara Sand
  2. Very Vanilla
  3. Soft Suede

The dijon ribbon picks up the gold in the sequins bringing it all into one cohesive look.  I hope you like it!  Creating with neutrals can be a lot of fun.  And for this card, all those neutrals are the perfect foil for my vintage sign.  The soft colors of my sign really pop.
