Default CAS58 - Chocolate Chip Mint (3/15/10)

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


************************************************** *******
What does St. Patrick's Day mean to you? To me, St. Patrick's Day season means McDonald's Shamrock Shakes. At my McDonald's, we can order it our way... 1/2 mint & 1/2 chocolate. Yum! This is not a theme challenge... The chocolate mint shakes simply inspired our challenge for you:


This week we have a CAS color challenge for you:
any shades of green and brown + white or cream



Keyword: CAS58


DT samples to help you get started with ideas:


Alanna's Card

Carly's Card

Kelly's Card

Boo's Card

Guest Designer:Aimes' Card

CAS58 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!

Great cards by the DT!

I used to work at McDonalds and make those 1/2 and 1/2 chocolate mint shakes! Another good one was 1/2 and 1/2 banana chocolate!
