CAS06 - Inspired by Robeez
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.

This week is an inspiration challenge! You can use anything you find on the Robeez site. I just ask that you link the page to the comments section of your card when uploading.

Keyword: CAS06

Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Jen's Card - Jen just wants to say that this is a CAS card... no lengthy paper piecing... It's a Martha Stewart cupcake punch! :-D

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!

Work of Heart!
Hello There!

Miss Boo 03-15-2009 08:30 PM

I'm giggling over the comments my cupcake card is getting. I didn't paper piece anything... It's a fun & super fast technique.... Martha Stewart cupcake punch. :mrgreen:

craftycaro 03-15-2009 08:32 PM

That's so funny Jen...well it sure fooled us - LOL!

Wendy G 03-15-2009 08:49 PM

I can't wait to check out the Robeez site. My kids both lived in those 'til they were at least 2 years old!

Off to play...

ink|outside|the|box 03-15-2009 11:36 PM

This is my first CAS challenge that I have done. There certainly a lot to choose from on the Robeez site!

My CAS06 Robeez Guitar was based on this pair of shoes.

artystamper 03-16-2009 05:22 AM

megjoralys 03-16-2009 06:27 AM

I love these challenges! I can't wait to do this one too!

Wendy G 03-16-2009 06:54 AM

I wanted to do something a little different but I had to make it quick because I've got to get DS to the dentist. When I get back I'll look at everyone's cards. I may even do another one. Anyway, here's my card:

crooked river 03-16-2009 06:56 AM

Great site, Jen! So much inspiration to be found. Link is in my card description. Thanks!!

Framed Buttons

cmsuto 03-16-2009 06:58 AM

Thanks for the great inspiration challenge, Jen! Lots of cute things on the Robeez site. Here is my card:
I combined it with today's TLC. The ribbon frame may not look simple, but it only took a couple of minutes to cut the slots and the rest is the same as tying on a ribbon! Super quick and easy, but different!

KY Southern Belle 03-16-2009 07:18 AM

Here's my card for this challenge. Thank you for looking!

Butterfly Wish

rj77 03-16-2009 09:53 AM

I had so much fun looking at those cute little shoes! Here is my card.

eured99 03-16-2009 09:56 AM

These are such wonderful images! I can't play today, but I will play sometime this week! I just love this!

hskelly 03-16-2009 10:03 AM

Here is another one for today's challenge. I think it is still a CAS card, but it took forever doing the ribbon frame technique! I'm not happy with the ribbon but I'm going with it anyway since I spent over an hour on it!! Here is my card.

mwben 03-16-2009 10:15 AM

These are the sweetest little shoes I've ever seen!! Great Challenge Miss Boo!!
