Hustle & Bustle: The Winter 2010/2011 DT Search is Here!
 
The Hustle & Bustle of the Holiday Season is here! There are lines everywhere! Get in line here with your first challenge entry!

To enter the competition for the next Clean & Simple DT, make a CAS card following the instructions below. And then post in this thread with a link to your card.

CHALLENGE #1
Keeping up with the Jones's: Have you ever seen neighbors trying to outdo each other with the holiday decorations? It's fun to sight-see, but I wouldn't want their electricity bill!

Make a CAS card with a decoration theme. It can be for any holiday or even a birthday. Please add ribbon and some sort of bling.... the challenge is to still keep it clean & simple. ;) Style and beauty/cuteness is always important, but the CASness of the cards will be viewed heavily in the first elimination judging since basically it's challenging to keep it that way and there are a lot more cards I have to sadly eliminate. :D (Our current definition for a CAS card is near the bottom of this post.)


Keyword: CASwinter10KJ

(No spaces CAS winter 10 KJ -- not good. If you are concerned about getting it right, copy & paste it into your keyword box.)

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: Friday, Nov. 19 @ 10 PM (EST)
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.)



Sample #1 - Very CAS
Sample #2 - CAS with a bit more dimension
Sample #3 - starting to push the limits on CAS

Challenge #1 Gallery

What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple. Below is the reworded definition.

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

Crazy Relatives: Every family has at least one crazy relative... right? I hope it's not just us!

Make a CAS card for a family member. It doesn't have to be a December holiday card. It can be a card for a birthday, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, etc. But it must have a title (mother, husband, son, etc.) It is also okay just to have the title without the sentiment. The title does not have to be stamped. It can be written or computer generated.

Keyword: CASwinter10CR

(No spaces CAS winter 10 CR -- not good. If you are concerned about getting it right, copy & paste it into your keyword box.)

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.

I didn't have time to make new cards. Here's a sample just using the title without the sentiment.

Holiday Giving: Gift giving and sending cards with heartfelt sentiments are popular traditions this time of year. This is an inspiration challenge. A gift or a card does not have to be an image on your CAS card. It doesn't even have to be a holiday card.
Choose one of the following photos as your inspiration. (attachments)
Photos are from Bronner's in Frakenmuth, Michigan.

Challenge #1
 
For some reason, as soon as I heard the "Decoration" theme, I thought of this Hero Arts stamp set with the bird carrying an ornament. Normally, it takes me a million years to come up with an idea.

Yeah, it feels like that for me too! We've been here barely 2 years; but we knew that going in. This next move is "permanent" (the quotes because, with my husband, no location is permanent, lol). We're off to Colorado. I'm very excited about this move!

I have never done a design team contest before, but when I saw this theme I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do: Fido is keeping up!. Enjoy!
