Default CAS07 - Punches (3/23/09)

What is CAS?
The idea of CAS is to keep it Clean and Simple.


Definition: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any colored images should be small and quick. Don't go overboard on tons of punches and embossing. CAS cards should be easy and quick.


This week we are using punches. Whether you're using them as an accent or as the main image, punches are quick and easy. Just remember to keep it clean and simple!

Keyword: CAS07

Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Angela's Card

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Jen's Card

CAS07 Gallery


Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

I love punches!!! What a great challenge idea. I have grids on the brain because of doing the Dirty Dozen Sketch Challenge and from working on quilts at our church. I am seeing them everywhere!! So.........

Here is my card:

Purple Quilt

This was an easy one for me. I love punches. And they are perfect for CAS cards. I made two cards in about 20 minutes this morning.

I LOVE this challenge because I love clean and simple cards! Not because they are quick, but because they are so appealing to the eye. Here's my first for this challenge:

Here are a couple more cards for this challenge. They were swimming around in my head when I woke up this morning. Is that a sign of an addiction??!
