CASEing the Catty #139 Everyday Occasions

Sunday 30 July 2017

Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Today's cards are from the Everday Occasions section (pages 18-67) of the Annual Catalogue.
I love the three cards on the right hand side and started just CASEing the top one but it was so quick and simple I was worried it wasn't enough! So I ended up making all three and came to the conclusion that sometimes quick and simple are just what you need!
All these cards have two things in common - they all use some of the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper and the base cardstock is Soft Sky.

This card's sentiment is from the set that comes in the "Oh Happy Day Card Kit". I stamped it in Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso to co-ordinate with the DSP. A sprinkle of Garden Green Enamel shapes and a bow in Whisper White Baker's Twine finishes it off.

This card has the Coffee Break DSP down each side and the Naturally Eclectic DSP in the centre of the card. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the inside square then cut a slightly larger square in Peekaboo Peach to border it. The "birthday wishes" sentiment is from the "Happiest of Days" stamp set - it's just missing the flower and greenery which I masked before I stamped it. Again I used Enamel Shapes, this time in Night of Navy and another bow in Whisper White Baker's Twine.

The coffee pots and cups from the Coffee Break DSP have been covered in Fine-Tip Glue Pen to give them some dimension and shine. I've used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the DSP and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.

I hope you've been inspired to create some quick and easy cards too!
Next on the blog hop is the very talented Bronwyn Eastley - love her style!
