Default Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites: Best of 2010

Welcome, 2011!!!

And welcome to the CAS Best of 2010 Thread! This week, we're celebrating our favorite gallery uploads from all of 2010, so scroll through all your favorites from 2010 and link to the best of the best right here on this thread. There were so many gorgeous, cute, or just plain stunning clean-and-simple cards uploaded last year that any list is necessarily artificial. I wish I could have included all my favorites from 2010...but that would include over 1,000 cards.

Instead, I've narrowed the list down to a few from each month. It was soooo hard, but here it is!

Default Favourites of 2010

Thank you Susan for posting this thread every week and thank you for looking back over the year and reminding us all of some of the wonderful CAS cards that were created in 2010. Like Susan I had trouble keeping the number of favourites down to a manageable size. Here are ten that inspired me.

girlgeek101 inspired me to make my own version of this beautiful emboss resist tree


sleepyinseattle created a gorgeous soft and blended Autumn foliage card.


resqbarbie's rainbow butterflies are a happy and artistic take on the classic 4 square layout


bfinlay made a card which makes me happy with all its whimsical curls and swirls


I love everything biggan creates but this leaf still amazes me with its texture and colour


Everything about this card by kdunbrook is perfect: colour, layout, images!


The discovery of hobbydujours gallery was a highlight of 2010 not the least this atmospheric card


The simplicity of Lateblossom's creations always inspire and this was no exception


Lisaadd has used white space beautifully with a perfectly positioned organic image


Often less is more, beautifully displayed in this simple design by atsamom

Heather, to say I am overwhelmed that one of my CAS should make it on your "Favorites " list would be a HUGE understatement!! I consider CAS one of my weakest styles...but one that I keep plugging away at, trying to achieve. You have given me a giant boost! Thank you! Hugs, Sallie

Wow....where to begin!! I am so overwhelmed that I don't know what to say!
Thanks so very, very much to Susan and to Heather. It is such an honour to be in such talented company.
This year has been FANTASTIC for cas. I wouldn't even know where to begin to list my favs for the year as my list is soooooo long.
Thanks for taking the time each week to come here and list yours. And to Susan for starting the thread every week.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year and looking forward with excitement to seeing all the inspiration. We have much to be grateful for!
hugs,
Karen

Susan thanks so much for taking the time [all year] to set up this end of year spotlights! How fun to be mentioned, but even better was visiting everyone's cards and seeing what I missed over the year! THANK YOU for re-introducing me to CAS - I have had so much fun making them this past year, and learning from you on the best way to make it pop! I am looking so forward to 2011 with you , Jen (OLW) and the rest of the CAS Queens!!

Keep up this fabulous sharing!!

I logged in to email this morning and couldn't figure out why my ol' card was getting comments again. Thanks for today's honor and also for the year-long inspiration. There's a lot of talent on this forum and this give me motive to keep on keeping on! Hope to sneak time away from the kids to check out the rest of the list and, perhaps, make one of my own. And maybe I'll be able to play along more in 2011! Happy New Year!

There was so much CAS goodness in the gallery this year, it was hard to narrow it down to a reasonable number, but here's my attempt:

PaperInBloom's Loving Life Aw, talk about the power of CAS.

handmadebysm's CAS Thanks You Wonderful colors and I love the ledger-paper butterfly!

Crafty Math Chick's Pac Man Tribute Because I love clever cards!

SinCityGal's Smiles! Was it the color palette? The library clip? The hint of ribbon? Whatever it was, I was drawn to this card over and over.

UnderstandBlue's Normal Is Boring! Because (a) yes, normal is boring (b) I want to take that monster home and (c) Lydia rocks at highlighting awesome cards every single day on the Splitcoast facebook page.

angelahath's Hot Water! Did I mention my love of clever cards?

artsy_em's Wedding Wishes for Nick & Sarah Me want outline alphabet!!!!

PaperInBloom's Rescue Remedies I will be sending Carly my bill from Waltzingmouse Stamps shortly, because this card was the one that tipped me over the edge and made me start buying there!

juliemcampbell007's Hello There I'm not sure if I've mentioned clever cards and my love of them.

jovialjudi's Shabby Embossed Roses Aw, the power of Core'dinations cardstock!! (In fact, I think I'm going to CASE this card today!)

hskelly's Wish You All the Best Sallie! My love of watercoloring flowers with an aquapainter started just shortly after this card was posted. Coincidence? I think not.

Beedubya's Kraft Family I never thought I'd love a card inspired by the Duggars!

Chinook's CAS Aqua Butterfly Note Cards So the magic of a beautiful color paired with wonderful restraint!

juliemcampbell007's Bunny Family I can neither confirm nor deny that I yelled "SQUEE!!!!" when I first saw this card.

criminalgrace's Simple Sparkles Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree never looked so festive.

LexAndDave's enjoy the polka dot ride POLKA DOTS!!!!!

Aimes's Hello Dearie! Hand-drawn fawn!

Lisa Lara's Snow Gingham I feel warm and cozy just looking at this card!

Thanks to everyone who posts their fabulous CAS creations in the gallery, everyone who posts their favorites so I can catch the ones I miss, and everyone that leaves loving comments on cards!

Wow - I don't even know what to say, except thank you. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave comments on the gallery, to link up their CAS favourites, and especially to Karen Dunbrook - for always taking the time to let us know we've been mentioned in the CAS favourites. With a LINK no less.
Wishing each and every one of you a fabulous, creative, healthy 2011.

All I can really contribute to this thread is that there hasn't been a CAS card that I've looked at yet that I just don't adore. All of you have such a unique and individual style that shines in all of your cards that makes each and every one of them so very special and distinct. Some of the busier cards, while lovely in their own right, do start to look similar at times, but I do believe CAS cards are "harder" to create to keep them clean, simple, and unique. So, I can't just pick a few favorites from all of them because that would be doing all of you a disservice, but would rather offer up my appreciation and congratulations to every single CAS card maker who's inspired me because you're all superstars in my book and make the list for this year.

Nicely put, Cindy. It does feel somewhat artificial to limit a list when there are so many amazing cards out there, including yours! In fact, I enlisted the help of my mother to limit my lists as much as I did. Just couldn't do it myself!

CindyH, thank you SO much for the mention of my sympathy card. It was a very simple and low key card. You give me hope to keep trying to pare down my frou-frou style. : ) Hugs, Sallie

How fun! And TrishG, what an honor to be among your listed for 2010! I've so slacked in participating, commenting and even uploading lately due to my computer crash, but glad to say I am back with a new machine. Can't wait to get back in the CAS swing in 2011!!

And we can't forget Karen Dunbrook for taking who knows how many hours each week to let us all know when we've been chosen. What a sweetheart! THANKS KAREN!!

ACK! Are you serious?! Meg, you are a total rockstar for choosing my card. I blush, I blush. Thank you so much! You made my week, dude!

A big thanks to k dunbrook, as well. You're always so kind to point out when someone's card has been mentioned. I know we all appreciate you!

I'll be back in a bit to post a few of my faves...

Brandi, now I'm blushing! Not one, but two of my cards?!?! And to have the monsters one as your total favorite?!!?!? (a different take on the monsters card was also my first ever published card, so it's a favorite of mine too!) You are way too kind, but I like you anyway.
