CASEing Kelly Blog Hop +Giveaways

Tuesday, October 27, 2015


 
Today's very special blog hop is in honor of Kelly Latevola.  Kelly has highlighted many artists on her blog column called CASEing Genius.  She shares projects, an interview, and also creates a project of her own that is inspired by that week's genius.  Kelly included me in that list of 'geniuses' and you can see my interview {HERE}  Today we {all of her past 'geniuses'} are saying 'Thank You' for loving and sharing our work with others.  She has made us feel special and we want to do the same for her!

 
We have each chosen three of Kelly's projects as inspiration and, as she does, created an original project inspired by them.  You can see the three I have chosen above.  I love Kelly's use of vibrant color, unique lines, and bold black accents.
 
 
 I have chosen to stamp and emboss the new Amaryllis stamp set from WPlus9.  I did a lot of masking to create my bouquet.  Then, I added color with distress inks.  I mimicked the diagonals of Kelly's butterfly card and the slanted sentiment.  I added a bold black word like her 'beautiful' card. 
 

Enjoy The Hop!
