CAS02 - One Button Will Do!
 
Welcome to our 2nd CAS challenge! This week we would like you to use one button on your card.

What is CAS?
The idea of CAS is to keep it Clean and Simple.

Definition: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any colored images should be small and quick. Don't go overboard on tons of punches and embossing. CAS cards should be easy and quick.

KEYWORD: CAS02

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card #1
Susan's Card #2
Susan's Card #3
Susan's Card #4

Angela's Card

Jen's Card #1
Jen's Card #2

SeattleStamper 02-16-2009 06:39 AM

Whoops! I just saw that I totally did the challenge wrong. I used 3 buttons and the challenge was to use 1. Oh well, It just means I'll have to play again. darn ;)

kstamper 02-16-2009 07:09 AM

This was a fun challenge! I made it last night, but the site was all wonky and I couldn't link it then. I slept in a little since I was up 'til 3:30am dinking around in my craft cave! That's what a double chai tea latte will do to you when you drink it at 9:00pm!! What was I thinking?!! :rolleyes:

Riveting Button

I'm loving everyone's cards so far!! Great challenge JATG! (Jenn And The Girls)

[QUOTE=Miss Boo;13130769]Welcome to our 2nd CAS challenge! This week we would like you to use one button on your card.

I found your comment about this challenge when visiting the SCS Site Suggestions and Questions so I checked to see where it was listed. I never saw the 1st CAS Challenge and can't find it under Weekly Challenges. This looks like fun...but I don't know where to find it! When is it published? Mondays? Thanks:)

if you click on splitcoast challenges instead of a catagory(from the forum page), then scroll down past the listed ones... you will find it.

here is a link to CAS01

i hope i haven't confused you even more (i am not too tech savvy)

It's in the challenge forum down past the weekly challenges. New challenges usually start that way. When we see that it is successful, it will be moved up to the weekly challenges with it's own sub-forum. At this time, Mondays are looking like the best time.

Thanks for asking. I'm sure others were wondering the same thing. ;)

Many thanks, I found it!! :) I saw some comments about CAS on General Stamping Talk yesterday but didn't know what it was all about...until today, when I happened on a comment from Miss Boo. I'll be a regular visitor, now.
My desk just happens to be covered with buttons right now as I work on another project - how convenient:) Thanks to you and Miss Boo for answering my question.
