ShowCASe #357 - Red & Green

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

You certainly rocked our Red and Green colour challenge and the gallery was bursting with exciting and vibrant inspiration. 





You make it so hard for us to select our favourites, but we try! 
Here we go, in order of entry and we hope you agree with our ShowCASe choices too!

Marina

Marina's #elfies-card gave us a real giggle! The red frame makes the cute elf pop from the 
card base brilliantly so this is not only a fun design, it's very clever too! 

Maaike

 Maaike used our colour combo in a very subtle way -we love her layered die cut and
 all that wonderful white space! 

Anita


 Anita's Christmas stockings are coloured to perfection, we love the way she doodled with white gel pen on top of her marker colouring. A perfect CAS card but with so much detail and interest!


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 bunch and worthy of our ShowCASe badge. Do pop along and congratulate them on their win if you have a minute.


We'll also be showCASing all of our winners' 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 which ends at 10pm GMT this evening before we announce the new one at 8am GMT tomorrow morning.

ShowCASe #353 & 354 - Fireworks

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post, although on this occasion it's a 2-weeker due to us running the challenge an extra week to allow a little free time for some of the team, to sneak off on a mini Craft Retreat!


As you know, it's never an easy job to select our favourites and we love to see all of your cards in our gallery. They inspire us every week and we hope you agree with our ShowCASe choices below!

So here goes, in order of entry for 




Angie’s card is CAS perfection.  It showcases the bright and beautiful colours of fireworks in one small ink blended image.  The black Washi tape and sentiment provided the perfect contrast.  

Another fabulous representation of the colours of fireworks.  Fireworks images are not required, but this image along with the colourful PanPastel background captured the amazing wonder of a fireworks display in a great CAS design.

This card is stunning.  We loved the use of fireworks colours to create a Christmas card.  
The colours chosen are gorgeous and the Glimmer Mist gave it such elegance and sparkle.    


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 bunch and worthy of our ShowCASe badge. Do pop along and congratulate them on their win if you have a minute.



We'll also be showCASing all of our winners' 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 which ends at 10pm BST this evening before we announce the new one at 8am GMT tomorrow morning. Susan's CASE card is a gorgeous example of festive CAS and she kindly prepared this card for her birthday weekend challenge.
