CASEing Kelly Blog Hop!


Hello!  I'm thrilled to be participating in this blog hop to honor Kelly Latevola!  Just about every Monday, in her CASEing Genius posts, Kelly chooses a fellow blogger, introduces her and her work to us, and then CASEs her guest's cards.  We decided to turn the tables on Kelly today and honor her with a blog hop.  We have all been former guests on her blog, (HERE was my spot) and we'll all be choosing 3 of her cards, and making a card CASEing ideas from them!  Fun, huh?


Our hop is a long one, so let's get started so you can move on.  You should have arrived from the fabulous Leigh Penner's blog.  If not I'll give you a listing of the stops along the way further down.  Here are the 3 cards of Kelly's that inspired me. (clicking on each pic will take you back to Kelly's original post, so that you can learn more about it):








When I think of Kelly's art, I think of bright colors and expert masking, and these cards illustrate that beautifully.  Since Fall is my favorite season, I decided to go with a variation of that theme from her first card.  I have nowhere near the coloring skills that Kelly does, so I chose a solid leaf stamp and colored inks to bring in my colors,  I stamped a whole panel of maple leaves, masking as I stamped, and then, inspired by her last card above, I die-cut a sentiment from that panel.


supplies: cream and dark chocolate cardstock, Clearly Besotted Autumn Flowers, stamped in Hero Arts Punch, and Ranger's Cheese Puff and Lemon Twist inks, Die-Namics Happy die, also cut from chocolate and off-set to define the words

Your next stop on our Hop is the amazing Linda Trace, but before you go, what's a hop without some fun prizes?

If you leave a comment by 11:59 PM, Thursday, October 29, along each stop, you'll be in the running to win a prize from one of our sponsors: TWO prizes (a $25.00 gift certificate and a crafty goodie bag) from a2z Scrapbooking, a gift certificate from Altenew, the Winter 2015 Card Kit from Create a Smile Stampsa stamp set from Dee's Artsy Impressions, one of Deepti's designs from STAMPlorationsa $25.00 gift certificate from any online store (winner's choice) from djkardkreations, a crafty goodie bag from Hero Arts, a $25.00 gift certificate from The Ink Road, a police woman digi stamp from Lia Stampz, and a $25.00 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp!  Winners will be notified by email after October 29.

Okay, off you go!  Here is the entire Hop List, if you need it:
