CASEing Kelly

 Welcome to the CASEing Kelly blog hop!
I first "met" Kelly Latevola when I joined the design team at A Blog Named Hero, and since then we have become good friends, and I am just a huge goofy fan girl of her style.  We share a love of rainbows, white space and CASness (and inventing new words).  My Pinterest board, "Cards I love", is positively chock-a-block full of Kelly's creations! And then she invited me to be her 2nd ever guest on her wonderful blog series, CASEing Genius, and I was just so excited and flattered and jumping around the room with glee and immediately started looking for my favourite rainbow cards.  So, of course, one of my CASE choices for today's blog hop is a favourite Kelly-made rainbow card :)

I had to spend DAYS going through my favourite Kelly cards on her blog and on Pinterest to decide on these three cards. It was torture.  Torture, I say*.

(* This is a big fat lie. It was totally awesome. The torture was choosing just three.)

http://disp6194-kellyscraps.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/happy-world-cardmaking-day.html

I took inspiration from the flowers on the first and second cards, and the angled cut out of the third card. There would have to be masking in there, and I also knew that I would be using a rainbow of colours.  This is what I came up with.

I seriously need Copic colouring lessons from Kelly! I used stamps from Altenew's "Hennah Elements" stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and Avery Elle "So Happy" stamped in Hero Arts Hero Hues black die ink, Copic markers in RV000, RV02, RV14, RV29, YR 00, YR02, YR16, Y02, Y18, Y19, Y38, G00, G02, B00, BG01 BG07, B29, B32, B63, V00, V06, and V09  and a coat of Wink of Stella as a finishing touch.

And, because I'm CASEing Kelly, I made a video!!

What a fantastic CASE of the cards you chose by Kelly! I loved watching your video as well, I always enjoy watching people create and hearing them explain their choice. In fact, my heart leapt when Kelly recently started making her videos and her Periscopes because it was a whole new way to learn about her and her style! This card came out beautifully and I think it really honors the idea of this hop. Thanks for taking part and inspiring me!
