Week 221

Hi there, it's Sarah here stepping in on a practice run to see if 
I can hold the fort whilst Chrissie and Anne jet off in a few weeks!

First of all thanks for all your wonderful entries from last week
you certainly know how to go up, up and away.

So what's in store for this week ...

It's Recipe Week
and we would like you to include
a TAG on your project

We can't wait to see what you come up with.
Each week we're stunned by your inspirational makes
and just want to see more.

As always please remember to keep it Clean and Simple
with lots of yummy 'white space'

Here are our examples and as ever you'll find more 
inspiration on our personal blogs

We have a little surprise for you this week... we have a

Guest Designer 

joining us for a few weeks, as some of us will be going away on holiday
here and there, so the troops are having a little reinforcement.
We are delighted to welcome

Neet & Crafty

Anita is known to so many of you as she has been a faithful LIMette
for quite some time and her work is totally stunning!
So do give her a huge welcome too!


Clearly Besotted - Tag Along, Leafy Accents
Uniko Studio - Beautiful Blooms II
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm
Hemptique Twine - Vintage collection

Flower stamped and heat embossed in white on vellum, fussy cut and coloured on the reverse with white Inktense pencil.  Leaves die cut from vellum.  Notches cut in edges of kraft panel to keep twine in position.  Tag and sentiment heat embossed in white and cut with co-ordinating die.  Layered up and vellum bloom adhered using silicone glue.  Gems for finishing touch.

This looks like a remnant from the splatter week... although I did just make this card. 
The butterfly is from Indigo Blu, inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then
 the edges of the stamp were inked by rolling a little Mermaid Lagoon ink onto them. 
I like the mix of these two colours. The splats are from Paper Artsy and Stampin' Up. 
The diecuts are from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from Penny Black.

This adorable set (Lawn Fawn: Gleeful Gardens)
was one of my sneaky purchases at the NEC 

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Rounded Tag
Uniko Studio: A Gift for You sentiment
Mama Elephant: Stitched Landscape Trio dies 
Images coloured with Stabilo pens and glossy accents for added dimension

Memory Box die with a Mama Elephant sentiment added and a 
punched star, all cut into a circle tag with a Simon Says Stamp stitched die.

We hope you enjoy this one!
We're looking forward to visiting you!
