Default CAS202 Technique Challenge: POSTAGE (01/07/13)

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

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~~~

Happy New Year everyone! It's good to be back, but that was a MUCH needed break for me! Onto a new year filled with new challenges, fun times and new friends! Join us!

CAS202
Technique Challenge
Postage or Faux Postage

This can be interpreted many different ways besides a technique challenge...I want to see all the ways you can!


KEYWORD: CAS202
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Check out these samples from our talented and dedicated Winter Design Team!

Winter Design Team

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!

I did another card. I needed a quick and easy card for a male's birthday. Combined your challenge with the TLC for today.

Good morning ladies! I completed my card using a small set I got in my Crafty Secrets prize package from the 2011 HYCCT challenge drawing. I don't exactly have postage on the card per se but made a post card of sorts!

First day back to work since before Christmas, but decided to play tonight instead of just falling asleep on the couch

I combined my card with the Technique Lovers Challenge - here's my brown paper package tied up with string - TFL!

Wink Flying by to say Happy Birthday

Thanks for the instructions on how to link a card. I've got my fingers crossed that I did it correctly.
I interprested the postage by creating the background of a postcard. I looked at the tutorial for faux postage. It looks interesting but I'm not ready to try that yet.
