Week 171 One Layer Challenge

We are delighted to announce our new 
Design Team Member.
We had the most astonishing group of crafters to choose from and the decision was exceedingly difficult.
However the Designer has been selected and we're sure that you will be delighted with our choice.
It is
We were so blown away by all the fabulous people who wished to be considered that we have decided to ask each of them in turn to be Guest Designers!
 Please email us so that we can arrange a date for your Guest Spots!
Congratulations to Sarah and a huge thank you to all those who applied!

Our ONE LAYER theme 
this week is 

The is my first attempt at de-bossing with cutting dies. I've used Memory Box mini stars with a Sizzix Framelit for the larger one.  The stars are coloured with distress inks and stamped with stars from Clearly Besotted 
- Super Star and Signature Christmas sets. Sentiments are also Clearly Besotted and I couldn't resist adding a bit of sparkle with some gems.


I went for something a little different today using Heidi Swapp Colour Shine to mist a watercolour card blank.  I then heat embossed in melon mambo the lili of the valley stamp.

This card was made with Memory Box stencils and  Inkylicious grass stamps using Distress Inks. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.


 Coffee coloured card with gold shimmer letters cut from both types of cardstock with my Portrait and embedded.  Lines dry embossed and some gold gems added - extremely CAS!

We hope that our new Designer line-up will give you even more inspiration and we are all looking forward to seeing your submissions!

Do please visit the designers' personal blogs where there are often additional samples to be seen!
The LIM Team!
Has anyone spotted the deliberate mistake? ... it should read 2014, not 2013 for the closing date for this week's challenge... but you knew that didn't you!
