CASEing Kelly Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  I am super duper excited for today's very special blog hop for the amazingly talented and oh-so-sweet, Kelly Latevola.  This hop is comprised of a group of crafters each saying “thank you” to Kelly for all her generosity and kindheartedness.

If you have never been over to Kelly's blog, You and Your Big Dreams, you need to head on over and plan on spending a good amount of time there. In Kelly’s CASEing Genius posts, she always takes THREE cards from the designer she is CASEing, and makes ONE card inspired by those three cards.  This CASEing Genius feature is the original starting inspiration for this hop.  HERE'S my feature day.

A huge thank you to Nina and Marika for putting this all together.

Here are Kelly's three cards I chose to CASE.

 LOVE the graphic design here and of course, the rainbow colors.

 Another graphic card using rainbow colors.  Love the stripes down the side.

Inlaid & popped up die cutting, what's not to love?!

The CASE:


If you know me well, you know I LOVE creating cards using rainbow colors so that was definitely my inspiration from Kelly's first two cards.  I just had to use the inlaid and popped up die cutting technique Kelly used on her third card.  LOVE that so much!  I chose a sentiment that had both scripty and typewriter fonts as Kelly did on all three of her cards.


What is a blog hop without some fun prizes?! Leave a comment by 11:59 pm EDT on Thursday, October 29th along each stop in the hop to increase your chances of winning a prize from one of our sponsors: a2z Scrapbooking, Altenew, Create a Smile Stamps, Dee's Artsy Impressions, DJ Kard Kreations, Hero Arts, Ink Road, Lia Stampz and Simon Says Stamp,!
