pile on the LAYERS at Charisma this week! mmmm, layers.

you chickens prolly already know i'm generally not a huge fan of the CAS style (although i have fun with it sometimes).  well i was overjoyed when i saw our DT assignment for this week at Charisma!


i love using lots of layers and building them up on my projects.  we want to see YOU try your hand at the lotsa layers thing, too!  this can be anything from layers of lovely embellishments, lots of mats, bunches of pretty papers, or hey, even layering your stamped images!  either way, steer away from the absolute clean and simple and layer it on!

here's my 11-layer-card, featuring a gorje image from one of our sponsors, Time For Tea Designs:

isn't she a pretty little thing?  she's called Chin Up Buttercup and while i don't like my pleats, i love the image!  and ooh, did i have some fun FUSSYCUTTING!  i love those little hexie papers and the wood veneers (getcher wood at Paper Issues by clicking HERE!)...  the buttons are Jillibean Soup (thank you for the fabby goodies at CHA last summer!), tags (the birthday wishes and the red dotty banner tag) are from Chic Tags (thank you SO much, Veronica!)...  oh, and this gorgeous butterfly?  :)

that's from BasicGrey's Mint Julep line, and i just stickled the bajeebus out of it.  :D

okay.  so those are MY layers.  show us whatcha got, playing along by clicking HERE, and you could win....

a Time For Tea digi from the shop (there are some seriously cute new images!), or a £10 gift certificate to spend at the fabby J & C Creations (where you could TOTES stock up on embellies)!  :)  either way, we just want you to HAVE FUN with the challenge!  you have until next Wednesday to play along, so have at 'er!

that's it for crafty stuff.  i'm playing along at a few fun places:
Allsorts - their theme is "here come the girls" - hope this is girlie enough!  :)
Crafty Calendar Challenge - things with wings
Papertake Weekly - anything goes!
The ABC Challenge - O is for Open (anything goes)

now if you'll excuse me, i'm off to work, then to move more things into my new home.  :)

  5. Terrific card with all those layers. I can tell you had fun creating it. Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes I did hand stitch the flowers and leaves to the tote tidy. I know you can get a nice professional finish using the sewing machine but for me there is no satisfaction or art in it. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. It's impressive that you are getting ideas from this paragraph as well as from our discussion made here.
