Recipe Week 282

We promised you a new member for our design team, and here she is!

Please give a really warm welcome to Esther whom we are sure is well known to you already because of her tireless visits to your blogs and her wonderfully supportive comments.
Her creations are wonderful and we are sure that her work alongside the rest of the team will give you great inspiration. We are truly delighted to have her join us!
The challenge for her first week is to 
USE A STENCIL
There are many ways that using a stencil can be part of your design and the DT this week has come up with some terrific examples. Even if you don't possess any stencils you can use the negative of a die cut to create one. 
Remember as ever, to keep things simple and to ensure that there is some white space...
of whatever colour it may be!






We hope that these beautiful designs will have sparked some creative ideas for your cards and we can't wait to see them.
As ever, if you visit the individual designers' blogs there will be more for you to see, so do please hop over to them via the links above each card.
Have fun!

ShowCASe Week 280


Here we are again with another fabulous 
ShowCASe 
of LIMettes cards, 
this time for our Splatter challenge.
Who would have thought that what is ostensibly a mistake or accident (a splatter) could make such attractive designs!
Such a cute and fun design.  Love the use of the "art" splatters as it really fits in nicely with the design of the card.

 Love these splatters straight from the bottle!  Just perfect for the challenge and Linda's masking provides some added dimension to this CAS one-layer card!

We love how the splatters act as the leaves for this tree...so creative and beautiful!
Thanks so much ladies, these are truly inspirational. Please take your SHOWCASE badge from the page at the top... and thank you all so much.
If you hurry there's still a little time to enter a card for this week's Faux Bleach challenge, but as ever a new challenge will begin tomorrow at 8am BST.
So DO join us then!

you pop along to our personal blogs you may find some additional ideas.
If you are still unsure there's loads of tutorials on You Tube too.


Just a little 'Head's up' for next Saturday ... as we'll be announcing our 
NEW Design Team member following Anne's decision to step down from

Ok here goes with our examples ...
