CASEing the Catty Around the Corner - #CTC184

It's another foggy and cold day here in Woodside but this afternoon I was nice and warm in the craft room being inspired by the Annual Catalogue from pages 38 through to 51 and there were a lot to choose from this week.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Monique Fielder.

I received this stamp set at Onstage Local in Sydney back in April and it really did not inspire me but when I saw the card below it just said I could create a Christmas Tree out of that set, wow you say but the catalogue makes the sets oh so versatile.

It's nearly July and I do Christmas in July card classes so at this time of the year I try and start on my Christmas card collection, so in the next 4 weeks you will be getting lots of Christmas cheer and inspiration, it's never too early as I know I always still have a rush to make them as December approaches.

I stamped the background first in Old Olive and then stamped a lot of small branches and got fussy cutting them all out, and then mounted them up with dimensionals and then added some of the new red rhinestones to create the baubles and a Real Red bow to finish it off.

Ink:  Smoky Slate, Old Olive, VersaMark
