CASEing Kelly Blog Hop


Super thrilled to be part of the CASEing Kelly blog hop!
Yes, we are CASEing Kelly Latevola,
the TRUE GENIUS behind CASEing Genius:) 
It's the One year Anniversary of this Feature on her blog. 
HAPPY Anniversary Kelly!

In Kelly’s CASEing Genius posts, she takes THREE cards from the designer she is CASEing, and makes ONE card inspired by those three cards.
This was SO VERY DIFFICULT for me to do folks! First of all, choosing just 3 Kelly cards that I LOVE was next to impossible. I started out with 15, 12, 6, then narrowed it down to 3 cards.
   She does this almost every week!  Kelly, YOU are my HERO:)

Here are the KELLY cards I'm CASEing:)

      


  • Kelly is a master at creating one layer cards. 
  • She Likes to color Flowers:)))
  • Her Sentiment is often a die-cut... that's great, who wants to go through all that coloring then mess it up with a Stamping error..MISTI or not:0  
  • And Kelly often uses a solid colored matte as an accent to the main card front.

Here is my CASEd card:
 I  watercolored poppies on Distress Watercolor paper using my 
Kuretake Gansai Tambi, composing the flowers in the corner as Kelly often does. Die cut you, inspire and placed them on top. Stamped Kindness, and embossed with WOW pearl Silver on black cardstock.. Sunshine cardstock from SSS worked as the perfect accent matte:)
 Thank you Kelly, from the bottom of my heart for encouraging me with your kindness; in adding me to the list of gals you CASEd. 
Also thanks for the much needed reminder, through your videos
to stay true to my style, and do what I LOVE:)
