CASEing a superstar - Kelly Latevola

This week, I am celebrating my 1000th post to this blog!  YAY!

I'm  celebrating in two ways - firstly, I'm CASEing some of my all-time favourite cards this week - ones that I have pinned on Pinterest.  These are from some of my favourite card-making superstars.  Today's CASE is of a card by Kelly Latevola.
Here's the card I CASEd:

OK, so this wasn't the first card I made to CASE Kelly's.  I wasn't entirely happy with that one, but I showed it to Kelly anyway, and she asked whether I had used a stencil.  I hadn't, but it put the idea into my head, and so here's my second card (actually the third one I made), using a Hero Arts stencil!





Here's the second way I'm celebrating - I thought I would do a giveaway :) 

I have a bag full of goodies, including things from Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp, Kaisercraft, Stickles, Basic Grey, My Minds Eye, The Twinery, Imaginisce, Pebbles, Prima, Uniball, Kuretake, and a couple of other goodies thrown in for good measure!
 All you need to do for a chance to win this giveaway is fill in the Rafflecopter thingamajig below.  There are multiple ways to enter, and each one gives you an entry (or more than one)! I will announce the winner sometime in the week following the close of the Rafflecopter - you have until Friday, 14th August at 2pm AEST (that's 12am EST for my friends in the US and Canada, or 4am GMT for UK and European peeps.)

Many thanks to Kelly Latevola for being totally and in all ways awesome, and to Christine Drogt at Create a Smile and Jennifer McGuire at Online Card Classes for their generous sponsorship!

    1. I go through phases of CASEing cards, and phases of doing my own thing. We do need inspiration, though - but it can come from anywhere! :D Thanks for your comment!

    1. Thank you, Denise - I'm planning of trying this with a variety of colouring media - I used Distress Inks, but I'd like to try watercolours as well.
