CTC #196 - Santa's Workshop

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where we take a look at one of the sections of a current Stampin' Up! catalogue and use the projects within it to inspire our own creations.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the Santa's Workshop section of the Holiday Catalogue, pages 18 - 27.

I was inspired by the cute little gift bag in the centre of the image from page 23.

I decided to make a card using very much the same layout as the original, layering Soft Sea Foam over Shaded Spruce. One of the things about a colour refresh is learning how our new colours coordinate with each other and our existing colours. I am really liking the contrast of the very soft and darker greens together. I did add some Copper Metallic Thread and added some Gold Shimmer Paint to the little circles on the leaves ... I am really not sure what to call them but I sort of think of them as seeds or buds!

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples in the All Is Bright section of the catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Julia has created this week.

Happy Stamping
