Default CAS164: Spotlighting (4/2/12)

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!



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



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



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





~~~CAS WEEKLY CHALLENGE~~~



April 2

CAS Technique Challenge: Spotlighting




KEYWORD: CAS164
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.


Leave some love for our tremendous & devoted design team! Here are some samples to help you get started:

Winter Design Team
Angela's Card
Mary’s Card

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!

Default CAS164 Gnome in the Spotlight

I admit- I have fallen in love with these whimsical characters. So, why not put him in the spotlight? Thanks, Jen!

For the first time, I'm trying "spotlighting" for Jen's CAS challenge today. Thanks, Jen! It was fun to make. Here is my card PINK BUDS:

I'm not a big fan of "spotlighting"....maybe because I don't do it too well. Anyway, I think I did it very minimally today. Thanks for the challenge, Jen,
