Christmas in July

It's the middle of July, but Stampin' Up! released early to demonstrator's a Christmas stamp set that will be available to everyone a month early (August) and will be in the new 2017 Holiday Catalog starting September 1st.

Carols of Christmas is available as a bundle with an awesome Thinlits die set that you are going to want to have!  It makes the set!  Though I've had it a couple weeks, I finally had some inspiration last night.  Creative block strikes again.  :-(

As I often will do when I have a creative block, I went to catalogs and looked at images to see if I could C.A.S.E. (copy and share everything) an idea.  This time, the 2016 Holiday Catalog came to my rescue.  This image of the host set was my inspiration.

And this is the card I came up with.  The greeting comes from the stamp set Holly Berry Happiness, a stamp set that was carried into the new catalog from last year's Holiday catalog.

Hope this inspires you to create too!

Happy stamping!
