CTC#235, CASEing the layout on p159

Welcome back for week #235!
I'm struggling to fit everything in at the moment but I do love a layout challenge, so I couldn't let this go by without jumping in.
This great layout is open to lots of different results I can't wait to see what the rest of the design team have come up with, and I'd love to see your take on it too so be sure and add a photo of your card to our facebook page.

I missed out on playing with the colours from the gorgeous Pressed Petals DSP last week and I've been itching to use my new Very Versailles stamp set, so this is what I came up with- of course I couldn't stop at one card!!



I didn't want to try lining up the cross stitch element is a straight line so I used some of the edge pieces from the laser cut paper instead. I embossed the centre panels with the Subtle EF for more effect and stability and I love how they turned out. AND I'm really glad I bought the mini library clips- they are super cute and you can just tie the thread around the clip instead of worrying how to attach it to the paper.

The Merry Merlot version just needed a little extra flower for balance and I'm quite happy with that. The layout is just a launchpad for you to create your own design. So have some fun with it.

Next on the hop this week is Tina be sure and hop all the way around and then once you've created a card using this same layout share it with us on our Facebook page.



thanks for stopping by this week.
I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz

Creating with the lovely new IN Colours and Parcels and Petals.

With the release of the 5 new In Colours it's always fun to make a single card in each of the colours to show them off. This is a card I made for a swap and used at my Catalogue Launch. It's an easy make and take and uses the Parcels and Petals suite. I was inspired by an image on page 66 where this set is used for a tag on a gift bag, but I switched the elements into a card.




And I stepped up the Terracotta Tile version to an Easel Card.



I am entering these this week at the Inspire. Create Challenge.
The flower stamp is so easy to use and I have another version using both Purple Posy and Seaside Spray with reminds me of a hydrangea. But that's for later.

If you haven't ordered this set you should consider it- it's super easy to use.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,

CI#58 Delightful Day meets A Little Lace


Welcome back for another round of colour INKspiration. For this week we have a subtle colour palette and I know there are going to be some gorgeous creations which just prove that you don't need a big palette to have a big impact.
I love Crumb Cake and White so this was fun for me. I am also loving the new "a Little Lace" set and have done quite a few cards using it. In tonight's card I also used "Delightful Day"stampset  which I won at onstage. It features in the new BEGINNER BROCHURE and is a great collection of handy sentiments.



My card this week is an Easel Card which is one of my popular designs at the markets- and a style I love to create. I mirrored the floral image in Blushing Bride on the inside of my card too.



To get coordinating thread to tie around the candle I pulled a single strand from the white flax ribbon and ran it over the Blushing Bride inkpad a few times. I love the fibrous feel of these threads and they tie easily and stay tied!

For a bit of extra accent I coloured in the small flower.
I think the glitter dot accents might be the last of the Berry Burst selection I had, but I think they work well.

I'll have a few more samples using this lovely stampset soon, we used at my  recent Catalogue Launch.

Next on the hop this week is Nikki


Don't forget we love to see what you create using these colours also. Just pop your photo on our Facebook page .


I hope you have a creative week and remember,
