Happy Haunting in CASEing the Catty

This week on CASEing the Catty we are being inspired from the Happy Haunting Suite in the Holiday Catalogue - pages 46 - 49 of the Holiday Catalogue.  Welcome if you've arrived here from the creative genius of Rachel, or if you start here on my blog, be sure to continue hopping around to see the other awesome projects from the rest of the team!!

My card is inspired by the cute little dracula halloween card on the left of page 48.  And I created the same card twice - one with silver accents, the other with gold.... still deciding which I like the best!!!

I've used the same Cucumber Crush cardstock for the base card, embossed the background, and then added similar elements to the card in the Catty.  Instead of the gorgeous black spider web doilies, I've used our yummy paper doilies.  And instead of the flags on the side of the main greeting panel I've used cord and some glitter ribbon flags.

My images are stamped from Reason for the Season, and I've watercoloured them (inspired by the watercolouring on the little halloween card).

I hope you enjoy my card, and you are inspired to have a go at CASEing the Catty too!

Now it's time for you to hop on along to see Tricia's wonderful project, and you can click on this great arrow as you follow along on all the blogs for our hop this week!!

  1. What a bright and festive card. The colouring on your flowers is beautiful!

  2. I think gold is my preference Julia,well done on changing from Halloween to Christmas!

  3. These are lovely Julia. I have just been playing with this stamp set & it is growing on me. I keep seeing so many lovely projects made with it & yours is a perfect example of this.

  4. Your watercolouring is lovely!! It's hard to choose but I think I like the gold one best.

  5. Great colouring! I prefer the gold one, I think it pops more against these colours but both are great.

  6. Well, I will be the rebel & choose the silver one, lol! Love how the bright flowers pop, but all your accents enhance the images with their texture, glitter & shine. Fabulous cards, Julia, & so cool that your inspiration came from a dracula card.
