Let the stamping begin!
 
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


********************************************


After hibernating all winter,
are you ready for the great outdoors?



CHALLENGE #1: Theme Challenge (Two requirements)

The first challenge is to make an encouragement card with nature themed images.


Keyword: CAS2012springDT1

(No spaces CAS 2012 spring 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: Thursday, Feb. 23 @ Noon (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.)

Samples
Loll Thompson
Nancy Littrell

HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Round 2 ~ Semi-Finalists
 
I'm thrilled by the number of people who submitted cards for the DT search. Please keep coming back each season. It's really hard to narrow down the amazing work to just 3 which is why I do this 4 times a year and we now have guest designers ;)

If I counted right, we had 36 cards submitted. There are 18 semi-finalists!

Miss Boo 02-20-2012 03:52 PM

WOW! The cards for the second round were amazing. When I was planning that challenge, it took me a very long time to find one I really liked. When I saw that playground photo, I just knew that it would strike some great creativity. And you proved me right! Thank you for sharing your time and talent!

That said, this was agony. If the cards you picked didn't get those stampers to the finals, don't fret. There are many more seasons in need of designers. And I want to point this out: While there is more than one CAS style, I like to be conservative when there is a contest involved. So the card can't just be simple, it needs to be clean with plenty of "white" space.
