Default CAS12 - Little Bits of Ribbon (4/27/09)

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


There has been some discussion on threads in the general stamping forum about the definition of clean and simple. Here is what I have learned from it…

There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.


1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it.

OR
2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique

OR
3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques

OR
4. any combination of the above


************************************************** *******

Now on with the show!

This week we are using little, tiny bits of ribbon. You can make ribbon tabs, ribbon flags, attach a tiny piece of ribbon with a clip, or tie a bit on a spiral clip, etc. I can't wait to see what you do with just a bit of ribbon! Just remember to keep the card simple.

Keyword: CAS12

Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Angela's Card

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Jen's Card

CAS12 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.

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!

AWESOME! I have a few "bits of ribbon" that I tied for a card, then decided it "didn't work" and they are just sitting on my desk. I'll get to it in the AM!

I made 2 for this, combined with the TLC today.

I tried to keep the design of the card simple with lots of card base showing.

Here they are...
