HYCCT1228 Clean And Simple Statement Chatter Thread
 
3 Attachment(s)
Challenge Title: Clean And Simple Statement
Hostess: meerkat3 aka Leslie
Keyword: HYCCT1228
Date: Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Hello, there. Here it is the 28th of the month, and you've probably done (or at least thought about doing) around 30 challenges so far. So, for my challenge, I chose Clean & Simple (CAS), partly because there's nothing clean or simple about the nastiness of cancer, and partly because I can't do CAS. It's true: I fear white space.

So my challenge for you today is to make a Clean & Simple card, with a sentiment or word as your focal point. That's it - no other requirements.

For those of you who rock the CAS concept, you know what to do.

For those of you who struggle with the concept of CAS, why not check out the SCS CAS thread here for some ideas? Here's something they include with their challenge posts:

---------------------
What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

It's all about the design.
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design.
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design.

Clean & Simple
---------------------

I can't wait to see what you make! :)

Clownmom 10-28-2012 06:27 AM

CAS is not my usual style, but I'm feeling more comfortable with it. Here's my card -- HYCCT1228 Kindness_lb by Clownmom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I'm on the east coast, too. I plan to stamp by candlelight. :D

This was one of the hardest challenges for me - I typically don't make CAS style cards so I had to refrain from grabbing a ton of patterned papers, ribbon, my foam tape and my sewing machine! So here it is...

I am not a true CAS person, but I kept it as clean as possible! Used some wonderful images from my buddies, including SU's Girlfriends, True Blue Friend, and 4 frames. Here's True Blue Friend

Never did cas much before I joined SCS. I always thought cards had to be layered to the max and blinged up to look nice. Now I know different and have learned less is sometimes more! Like cas cards now :) So here's my take on today's challenge. Hunker down east coasters..............will be thinking of you!

I used a simple sketch with a piece of inlaid embossing I had already prepared for mine: Little Bits Together

scrappy_carla 10-28-2012 02:21 PM

I won't tell you how many failed attempts I went thru before deciding this would have to go. As you say, I have pretty trash now in my trash can! Oh well. I tried!

My feeble attempt
