Muse Christmas Visions 87

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along at Muse Christmas Visions with our fabulous guest designer Elizabeth from Paper Sweetness. She did not make one beautiful card, but she made TWO!!!!

Unfortunately I only had time for one card tonight and that is it. but we still have 4 days to play along - plenty of time to come up with another card, right?


I took my latest favorite animals and stacked them up along the left side of my sponged square to CASE Elizabeths tree branches. I did not quite get the coloring right, but I was inspired by it and that is good enough.....Could not help myself and added a tiny splash of color with that Santa hat....

 So here is Elizabeths gorgeous card that inspired mine:


 I used Cats on Appletree stamps. The sentiment and the star are from Paper Smooches. I was thinking of heat embossing the sentiment in white, but I did not have enough time for my card to fully dry. so I just stamped it in black.


So, you think you'll find time to play along? Would be fantastic - remember, Christmas is in a few weeks. About time to get started with your cards....

Happy CASEing!

What a totally fun and cool take on Elizabeth's card, Cornelia. I think the black sentiment works perfect in your design. Awesome job! I linked up a card last night, too! Yay!

Wow!! Gorgeous card :)

Da hast du mal wieder ein lustiges Kärtlein gestaltet.
Der arme Pinguin muss das schwere Pferd (er)tragen und er selber sitzt auf einem Vogel. Ob das mit der Balance hinkommt?
Na, wie werden es nicht erfahren können.
Liebe Grüße

You sure know how to add humor to your cards, Cornelia. Those animals remind me of the Bremen town musicians. Minus the Santa hat of course. ;)

Very unique take on the inspiration card design. Love the colors used.

Mac Mable said...

Fabulous masking, great stamping and blending of those amazing colours. Such fun and to add the red hat....clever!!!

Bożena Adamusińska said...

:-)) Great and so funny! I'm never sure what you can see in a normal Christmas tree :-)) I love a horse in Santa's cap :-) Once again I have to announce that I love your humor and the way of presenting your world :-))

LOVE!!

Wow Cornelia, what a fun card! I can see where your inspiration came from but beyond that, the "stacking" of your current favourite animals is a brilliant idea. (I especially love the Santa hat on Mr. Horse.) Except for some new characters which you've introduced, this makes me think of The Town Musicians of Bremen (remember that children's story?). Great idea. Beautifully executed. This is CASE worthy! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Haha! You built a tree out of animals! Very fun!

What's not to love about your card? It's perfect. What a great out of the box take on Elizabeth's tree branch card. I know I'll use this idea in the future. Super cool animals too. And the background. Perfect! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card on our Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week. Loved it!

Hi Cornelia, I have purchased lots of Cats on Appletrees stamps after seeing this wonderful card. I hadn't heard of them before so thank you for introducing me to a terrific new stamp company. I have some questions I need answers to in order to case your card (!), firstly how did you maintain the white parts of the stamp when stamped on top of the watercoloured square? Secondly, is the Santy hat coloured and fussy cut, then added?
Really looking forward to creating something like this amazing card. Thank you for the inspiration.
