Default CAS201 Inspiration from a Photo (12/17/12)

The CAS challenge will be taking off the next 2 weeks for Christmas and New Years...we will be back on January 7, 2013 for a Brand new and exciting challenge to start off the new year!
For more inspiration in these next 2 weeks, check out our 200th Challenge Party HERE

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

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~~~

Hoping you are all having a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy and Happy New Year!

Inspired by a Photo
Country Christmas

** My card is going to Connecticut to Sandy Hook Elementary. I know it's not much but it's what we as cardmakers do. If you would like to send yours also here is the info:
Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT. 06482



KEYWORD: CAS201
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Leave some love please for our talented and dedicated Winter Design Team! Here are some samples to get you started:

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, showcase the CAS style and to get us stamping!

Lovely photo for inspiration, Denise. The candles are the obvious, but I went with the wreaths at their bases for mine.

I did sit right down and make my card. I, too, made a card with a wreath. It was made out of a MS punch and liquid pearls.

When Tim Holtz says his picket fence distress marker dries opaque, he MEANS it! How to tone down the blinding white candle? Eh. Who wants to?

This is a great inspiration challenge, and I hope to get time to play along. Wouldn't this have been a good challenge for the Comfy & Cozy VSN - make a card with a candle. Sure wish I'd thought of that.

Loving all the beautiful cards with or without candles in the gallery.

Smile CAS201 Jolly Old St. Nick

What a wonderful photo! It felt so traditional to me, I decided to do a card with a Christmas/Santa/presents theme. I couldn't forget the lovely holly and berries, so I found some dp to accentuate that element. Here's Jolly Old St. Nick

I don't get to play in these challenges often, and even though I'm very late didn't want to pass up the opportunity!! Thanks for the great challenge - here's my card: { Peace on Earth }

I'll be back this week to comment!!

Blessings!
