Hostess Statements



TIP: This is a contest for CLEAN & SIMPLE. I tend to push the definition once in awhile with my own cards, but when judging for the design team, I lean towards the conservative cas designs.

Advice: Please remember that everyone who participates wants very badly to be on the design team. The reason why I started the guest designers was so that more could get involved. That said, there will always be disappointments. Please remember it also comes with more opportunities. This happens every 3 months. Four times a year is great for this type of event! To do it more often would be too stressful. These events take a lot of time and I love doing them. And it's easier and happier when everyone is a good sport. I do this for YOU! (In fact, the cas challenge was the very first challenge to have a design team!) I want as many people as possible to experience being on the team. Some people may have to wait longer than others, but waiting builds perseverance and strength. Please have fun!!!

Photos: Please remember the clearer the photo of your card is, the better it will look. Make it stand out and make us say "WOW!" Photo software programs have editing options. The most important ones for me are the lighting and sharpness features.

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

Make a Fashion Statement



CHALLENGE #1: Make a Fashion Statement with Flowers


Most of us love to decorate with flowers. They are outside and inside our homes. Some are real and some are not. You can find them in hanging pictures, on wall paper, in vases and, of course, on our cards!

On our cards, flowers can be elegant, whimsy, cutesy and fun. What is your style? Show us on your CAS card!

Your flowers do not have to be stamped. You can use any accessories to achieve the floral look.




Keyword: CAS2012summerDT1

(No spaces CAS 2012 summer DT 1 -- not good. If you are concerned about getting it right, copy & paste it into your keyword box.)

By adding just CAS in your keyword box, you will be in 2 galleries. Separate all keywords by a comma followed by a space.

Please also post a link in this thread just in case there is an error with the keyword or if the gallery is being finicky on the judging days.

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, May 23 @ Noon (EDT)
New Rules as of Fall 2010:
Please don't combine this challenge with any other current SCS challenge.
Please make only one card. (It's easier to narrow down the field this way.)

CHALLENGE #2: Make a Fashion Statement by
the Inspiration of Shoes


Here's the Twist: You will see a few pairs of shoes from Macey's in the attachments, BUT the card can not have shoes on it. The card can use the colors, styles of accessories such as bows, buckles, and flowers or the patterns on the shoe. The tricky part is that we should know what shoe you picked without asking.

Make a Fashion Statement


CHALLENGE #3: Make a Fashion Statement by
paper piecing
with your favorite patterned paper and stamps.


Here's the twist: As usual, you will stamp the image on the pattern paper and cut it out, BUT you cannot cover the whole image using the patterned paper. For example, if your stamped image is a fashionable lady carrying a purse and umbrella, it could just be the purse and/or the umbrella that is paper pieced.
