Showcase Week 289

It's SHOWCASE time 
once more and we bet you can't wait to see who is in the celebrity line up this week!
What a line up it is too, simply stunning examples from all!
Each one has that little French something and all are 
showing that 
Moins est Plus!

This deceptively simple card is a brilliant example of CAS, combining an interesting layout and vivid, intense colours. 

Crisp stamping, soft colouring and a fun image with great use of white space to really highlight the focal point.

The bold stamped image and vibrant colours are beautifully set off by the hand drawn stitched border.

Ladies, please take your Showcase badges from the page at the top with our sincere congratulations!

If you bustle there's still a little time to join in with this week's Exotic challenge... but as ever there will be a new challenge waiting for you tomorrow at 8am BST
See you then!

Week 290 - Theme - Exotic

Hi LIMettes!

We have another theme challenge for you this week and the focus for your CAS creation should be


We really hope that you have fun with this one and manage to show us your fun creations
Here are some stunners from the DT to give you a little inspiration!

Do please remember to leave some white space, limit the amount of
layers you add and keep any embellishments to a minimum.

As always we would love you to visit some of your fellow participants to leave a friendly word.

The designers also appreciate visits and often have additional examples on their
personal blogs...a click on their names should take you there.

With apologies for lack of visits last week as I was away on holiday!

So here's your chance to create something exotic... 
we can't wait to see what you produce!
...and remember as ever... have fun!

ShowCASe Week #288

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post.

It's never an easy job to select our favourites but we do love seeing 
all your stunning takes on the challenge in our gallery each week.  And this challenge colour combo did stump lots of you initially but you certainly pulled out the stops and created some amazing projects!

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for 
our Blue and Brown challenge

#37 Suchi

By stamping blue inks over white, we loved how Suchi's images just popped off her kraft card base.  And one layer too!

#54 Nonni

We loved Nonni's retro take on our colour scheme and this is just CAS perfection.  The textured base, faultless stamping, buttons and white accents made this a winner.

#55 Mac

Mac deserves a round of applause for this cluster of great techniques.  Stencilling, Bistre powders, die cuts, foil, alcohol inks, glitter and embossing...and yet still wonderfully CAS!

Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge
 from the page at the top of the blog with our thanks. 
We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.

We're sure you'll agree these are a wonderful trio and worthy of
our ShowCASe badge this week. 
Do pop along and congratulate them on their win.

As always there's still time to enter our current challenge 
#289 One Layer 'Something French'

which ends at 10pm GMT this evening before we announce
the new one at 8am GMT tomorrow morning.
