Each Thursday my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from the US and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit. The beautiful projects by the concept artists from Stampin' Up! are a great way to be inspired! When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.
In my card today I changed up the stamp set from Snow Front to Press On. The colours have been changed to Coastal Cabana and Early Espresso which go together so beautifully!

Love You More Than Dies.
I love "coffee" themed stamps even though I'm a tea drinker. I paired the Press On Stamp Set from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue with the Love You More Than Dies from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. The dies are part of the Nothing's Better Than Bundle.
