ShowCASe #309 - Lucky Dip

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


We were blown away by the number of you that joined us for our dimension challenge and your cards were fantastic! 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.

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for 
Week #309 - Dimension




Elaine




We loved this super clever layout. The dimension achieved from the different sizes of squares at various levels is super effective. And the sunny colours are great too.


Cathy

So much dimension here from the popped up butterfly, the embossed sentiment and the crisp lines of the embossed border.  So classy and perfectly CAS.

Toni

We loved Toni's attention to detail here.  The image contained within the sentiment is a genius idea and the knitted embossed background ties in brilliantly within the theme of the card.

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.

We'll also be showCASing their cards on our Facebook page
so why not hop on over and give us a 'thumbs up'!
Here's the link you need to take you there.




As always there's still time to enter our current challenge 
#310 - Colour: Ombré

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

Less is More #310 - Colour


Good morning LIMettes and a huge thank you for joining us in our last challenge of 2016 
and here's hoping you'll continue to enjoy our challenges throughout 2017.


So a NEW Year, a NEW month and we are delighted to welcome back
one of our super talented and super generous regular sponsors

What's more ... Kylie (owner of Happy Little Stampers) is joining us as
our Guest Designer for today and I'm sure she'd love a visit from you.
As well as designing her own range of stamps she is a queen of inky
tips and techniques, especially Brushos and shares many tutorials on YouTube.

Being the first week of the month it's our Colour challenge 
We'd like you to use an OMBRE technique with your chosen colour


"Ombre means shading or shadow.
The is applied primarily to describe the gradual blending of one colour hue
 to another; usually moving tints and shades from light to dark"


Here's what Kylie and our Design team have created for you 
to inspire and please head over to their individual blogs 
where you may find a few extras.
