Christmas Magic

One of my favorite Sunshine Designs stamps is the Christmas Harliquin Stocking stamp. When I saw Julee's Mojo Monday layout sketch for this week on her blog, POETIC ARTISTRY, I decided to use this stamp and a lot of bling for this card.

The background paper is actually a velvet paper and raspberry colored. I added some tiny bells on the harliquin cuff at the top of the stocking. In front of the sentiment, as well as the "nail" holding up the stocking, I used amber colored crystals. I colored the stocking with Tombow markers and added stickles for sparkle.

This is Julee's layout sketch for this week:

I think I'll go back to using my prismacolor pencils to color. I wasn't too thrilled with my application of Tombows on this particular image, but I do enjoy participating in Julee's layout challenges each week.

Until next time...


  1. Great "recipe" card with those awesome felt marshmellows. Your mice are always so cute and clever.
    The little bells on this one are darling. I am not fond of the tombows for coloring. I do like them for coloring directly on a solid stamp, though. Think my pine trees look better with brown trunks and 2 tone green needles. It's been warm here this week and I really hope it's blowing over your way, too.

  2. WOW! I really love this Christmas stocking. Love everything about it. Maybe it will make its way to Concord, NC this holiday season! Hint hint Jennifer! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Sherri

  3. What a cool stocking image! Love the bells and the little bows. Tahnks for playing my challenge! :)

  4. This is such a fun card and the cutest Christmas stocking!!!

  5. Love the whole card! What a creative design with those wonderful colors and the little bows are perfect! Love it all.
