CAS05 - Color Challenge
Color Challenge: Use shades of blue and green on your CAS card. Neutrals can be used (white, cream, black, etc). Please remember to keep it clean and simple! :D

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.


Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Angela's Card

Jen's Card

CAS05 Gallery

Many of you have been PMing me about the location of the CAS challenge. New challenges start here and then get their own forum when we see that it will be successful. I think we're on the right track! I'm loving this and I can tell you are loving it too! Hopefully soon we'll have our own sub-forum with the other weekly challenges

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Ooooh, color challenges are always challenging for me. Have to think about this one...

jbalcer 03-08-2009 07:16 PM

Very cool colors (okay, that made me laugh!), Jen!

We have a new home for the CAS Challenge, but right now, I can't move the threads over! As soon as we can get that fixed, I'll get everything moved. :) Have fun!

Miss Boo 03-08-2009 07:19 PM

OOps... I forgot to do a last minute check for the new home.
Thanks Jenn! :D You've been very busy this week with all the new changes.

So glad CAS has a home. Great job, Jenn.

kstamper 03-08-2009 10:23 PM

This turned out exactly like the vision that popped into my head. That doesn't happen to me very often!!

Here is my CAS Thinking of You

I think we are going to see some beautiful cards for this challenge!! Thanks Miss Boo!

krischir 03-08-2009 10:26 PM

Oh, these CAS are hard ones for me... so I guess I will keep playing each week, and hopefully get better at them!! I spend so much time on it, and it never seems right. I actually made two, because I abandonded one partway through... but I chickened out during upload, and didn't process it. I just don't like it...

So here is the card that took me about 2 hours, and is about a 10 minute card, tops. Sad...

Blue & Green Blooms

Maybe I'll try this one again sometime this week...

luvmyboys&stampin 03-08-2009 10:27 PM

Thanks for another great one! I love blues and greens, so this was extra fun. Thanks for looking.
Here is mine!
