Default CAS27 - Show off your bling! (8/10/09)

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

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 having a "Ways to Use It" challenge: Bling
Find ways to use bling on your CAS cards. Examples of bling would be rhinestones, gems, pearls, Stickles and glitter. This isn't a complete list. I'm sure I'm forgetting something!

Keyword: CAS27

DT samples to help you get started with ideas:

Ann's Card

Harriet's Card

Lisa's Card

Jen's Card

CAS27 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 probably didn't keep these as CAS as I could have, but there were really quick to come together and only have an extra layer or two. They are CAS to me. I even did a CAS scrapbook page with bling!

thumbs up

MY KID IS BACK IN SCHOOL!!!

LOL Isn't that terrible? I am getting back into my routine. I need to do some major cleaning today but I HAD to start back with the challenges! I promise to go clean now that I have had a fix. Clean a while, stamp a while, I can do that....

I used the essential glue pad and my butterfly is ALL bling! My scanner didn't do it justice. This is the hardest challenge for me. I should always stop a few steps before I do but I'm trying!

This is the perfect challenge for me this morning. I played a bunch this last week making image panels using pearl ex powders. I love the shine those powders give. It doesn't photograph as well as I'd hoped, but oh well - it looks pretty neat in real life anyways! Here's my card:
