CASEing Kelly Blog Hop & Giveaway!



Hey Everyone and Welcome to my stop on the CASEing Kelly Blog Hop.
If you're not familiar with Kelly, she's a craft genius! Possibly one of the best Copic marker aficionados I've seen! Her coloring skills are AMAZING!.

I've had the pleasure of serving on a Design team with Kelly in addition to being a long time follower of her blog You and Your Big Dreams. I'm so thrilled to have been asked to participate in today's festivities to Thank Kelly for her loads of inspiration & wish herthe happiest 1 Year Blogiversary!

Kelly has a regular feature on her blog called CASEing Genius where she takes 3 cards from a fellow crafter and makes one inspired by them. Today -- We're CASEing Kelly!!

Here are 3 of Kelly's cards I'm pulling inspiration from today


I love the beautiful scene created on the owl card using creative masking. The layout/sketch of the Coffee card inspired by design, but I also love the way Kelly uses a white gel pen around sentiments to pop them out from the background. Finally, The pile of presents on the last card inspired me to make my own pile of presents! Here is what I came up with

I started with a Blueprints 20 die cut and stamped on the pile of presents, which I masked off with masking paper before starting with the balloons. I stamped the right set of balloons first, masked them off, then stamped the left set! After removing my masks, I colored in the scene with Copics and topped them with Wink of Stella before stamping my sentiment in black pigment ink and clear embossing. In Kelly's fashion, I outlined my sentiment with a white gel pen!
