Welcome to the CASEing Kelly Blog Hop! If you don’t know Kelly, you are missing out. She’s an amazing and sweet crafter who scouts for talent online and features them on her popular Monday CASEing Genius posts. Everyone in today’s hop was a special guest on her blog, and we decided it would be fun to CASE Kelly and show her how much we love her! You can find her CASEing Genius posts here and mine is here. She interviews the guest and then takes 3 of their cards to create a CASE based on different elements.Be sure to hop along and see ALL the inspiration. I’m excited to check out the other ladies’cards as well! There are a few generous sponsors giving away prizes to random people who comment. Details are at the end of the post.
I loved the look of the background in this first card. It looks like a stack of paper. The layout of the circles and the sentiment are brilliant.
This second card just screams happiness. I loved the use of the shapes and free watercoloring inside. Again, a beautiful design here!
I decided to incorporate the multiple frames from the first card, the colors from the second card, and the shaker, stars, twine and two critters from the last card to create this CASE:
The first part was the most fun – I used my peerless watercolors to create a colorful background. I let colors dry before adding new ones so that they didn’t mix into new colors. Then I sprayed white ink spray and let that dry. For the shaker part, I added three colors of the star sequins from The Ton and added the top frame.
I stamped two of the critters from Happy Mail and colored with Copic markers. I stamped and colored the “happy” banner as well and added some twine so it looks like they are holding it. The sentiment is from The Ton’s Hey Foxy set. It looks like the critters are looking at a colorful sky and celebrating a dear friend’s birthday. I finished it off with some Just Dandy Studio pink twine.
This fabulous line-up of talented girls is absolutely amazing, and here is the hop list…
