CASEing Kelly Blog Hop


Today, I'm excited to be hopping along with the CASEing Kelly Blog Hop!

Many of you probably know Kelly Latevola...
She's a very talented stamper who started doing a feature on her blog, 
You and Your Big Dreams called CASEing Genius.
I had the honour of being featured earlier this year (*click*).

In her feature, Kelly chooses three cards from the artist she's CASEing,
and then created a card inspired by these three cards.

Well, the "geniuses" that Kelly has been CASEing have decided
to create a blog hop where we all CASE her!

Here are the cards that I chose from Kelly:


Aren't they pretty?
Kelly loves colour -- the bolder, the better!
She also loves flowers, 
so I decided to create a bold bouquet on my card using 
MFTstamps' Fall Florals.


I was inspired by Kelly's first card to stamp the flowers
and add a banner (Wplus9's Basic Banner).
Kelly often seems to add colouring behind her flowers and I loved
on her middle card, how she added two different colours,
so I did the same.


Kelly loves to colour and stamp with white embossing,
so I mimicked this by using white diecuts and stamping on them.

Here's a list of the other "geniuses" hopping along with me today:



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: 

Winners will be notified by email after October 29th.

Thanks for looking!
