Heart Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the Week Ending April 24, 2011

Welcome to the Clean and Simple (or CAS) Favorites of the Week Thread. This is where we celebrate the CAS style by linking to our favorite cards and projects from the past week's gallery uploads. Everyone is invited to participate!

Let me get us started with these fabulous cards!

giogio put her square punch to stylish and creative use on her happy birthday card

Smoatsmom used the CAS115 sketch from Maureen to make a wonderful card accented with a beautifully colored butterfly

Jennifer Styles masterfully used rich, bold colors on a gloriously white one-layer card for the OLW50 challenge

JulieHRR, the queen of CAS, made a simply stunning botanical thanks card

whoistracy's rainbow love card made me jump for joy...check out the transparent heart accent!

annie21211 combined orange and hot pink and some simple layering to set off her very simply stamped image in absolutely fun perfection

Gimmeink made a happy--and very clever--egg flower for the WT challenge this week

jandjccc spotlighted a tulip with a punched oval with wonderful results

RobinRingtailmade a soft and pretty batik egg and set it off simply on a debossed one-layer card

girlgeek101 made some beautiful sympathy cards...the hardest cards we have to make...using beautifully stamped black on white

biggan needs to teach us how she ties her perfect bows after showing them off on her Happy Easter cards (I just linked to one, but go to her gallery to see the color variations!)

PaperInBloom showed how beautiful corrugated cardboard can be on her Mother's Day card

briarthyme brought together simple elements that perfectly complement one another...and then stitched to bring the whole thing together perfectly

smriti used the Cuckoo set from Hero Arts in a simply perfect way

Now it is your turn. What CAS gorgeousness did YOU find in the gallery last week? Please do share!

Happy Easter!

I haven't been able to do any stamping as I've been travelling but I did get in a bit of time in the CAS gallery. Here are some I particularly liked:

Many Thanks by giogio

summer_sun_1_by_ by iastampr

Hope Happens by stampercamper

Nature Walk Egg Border - Easter Blessings by Boss

Same but Different by bon2stamp

Pink Flowers CAS by kittie747 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Simply Elegant Flower Garden by willsygirl

This one wasn't labeled CAS but I think it qualifies:

snowflake cutout by beetle76
