CAS137 - Paper Piecing (9/26/11)
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

HERE is a card I made for this weeks challenge.

I haven't made a card for a challenge for months and I'm feeling a bit rusty. CAS is always a good place to start. And I love paper piecing.

dianehh68 09-26-2011 06:23 AM

I am having a super busy Monday, so I decided to post a card I made for another challenge (I think it was Friday's but I did it Saturday). I water colored the solid stamped leaf images, spritzed with water and after they dried cut them out. The acorns are stamped with chalk ink and water colored in. I used pop dots to make some of the leaves "pop" off the cards.

I am fighting with my scanner....it "previews" the cards beautifully, then when it scans everything comes out blue-ish. So I've been using my phone to take the pics, hence the washed out fuzziness. My apologies.

I must be blind, because I am not seeing piercing on any one of these cards. You are talking about traditional piercing right? like you would do around a corner or something? Because I don't see it on any of the cards I have just looked at, and I looked at about 10 so far.

TrishG 09-26-2011 06:48 AM

I can't believe this technique hasn't been a CAS challenge before! Great idea Miss Boo!

If you look closely at the challenge you'll see that it is paper piecing, not piercing. It is easy to confuse the two. :wink: I've done the same thing myself before.

CAS137 Pumpkins and such by Crafty Julia
This is a great challenge- paper piecing is what I just love to do! I left off all the bangles and beads, and went with a burlap and twine background. I have the stamp "Jack trio" from PSX stamp company and a little chick, probably from a Hero Arts mini stamp tub. The boy and girl (SU's Greeting Card Kids) seem very intrigued by the chicks and pumpkins!
