So, in case you don't know, Kelly has this awesome feature she does on her blog, CASEing Genius. She interviews the special guest and showcases 3 of her favorite projects by them. She then CASE's one of them. HERE's my day on her blog. A big shout out to Marika + Nina-Marie for all their work!
Ready? Here we go, here are just 3 of my favs:
Well, you knew that there was going to be at least one coffee card, eh?! I always love Kelly's use of color and the masking for the stacked cups is awesome.
Gah, how cute is this Holiday Hugs card?! Everything is just perfect! I'm not a purple girl but I absolutely adore the purple and teal combo.
I really am a clean + simple girl at heart so when I saw this card with all that glorious white space and pop of color....oy, love it.
Here's how I was inspired:
cardstock: hero arts snow layering paper stamps: hero arts CL909 merry cactus to you ink: AF320 lime to forever green ombe, hero arts AF207 mid tone butter bar, hero arts AF256 mid tone just rust other: hero arts platinum embossing powder, pretty pink posh stitched duo 2, stampin' up basic black
I used the Hero Arts Merry Cactus to You set as my focal point. Can you tell that I used the Lime to Forever Green Ombre pad? I topped it off with a tiny bloom from Doodlebug. The sentiment has been heat embossed with Hero Arts Platinum. The background stencil is named Pebble Path, thought that was appropriate...inked it up with Butter Bar!
I can't wait to hop! Next up is the Awesome Ardyth!
