Next week there is a time in the time the challenge will be posted due to the holiday. Rather than being posted late Sunday night, we will post the challenge Monday morning. The time has been undetermined, but it would be noon at the very latest. Thanks for your understanding. And the team wishes you a happy holiday season!


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

CAS Sketch Challenge inspired by
DT member Charlene (LilLuvsStampin)

IMPORTANT: Please read before or after seeing the card: The challenge is to use the sketch inside the cool shape but it can be a different shape. I'm guessing most people will choose a simple round shape or maybe a square card.
Anything but the standard A2.

You can see her card in the attachment or by this link.

It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Leave some love for our tremendous & devoted design team! Here are some samples to help you get started:

Winter Design Team
Charlene's Card
Loll’s card
Nancy’s card

Denise's Card - coming soon
Jen's Card

Great sketch, Charlene...and thanks for passing it on to us, Jen.

I did a combination challenge card. My 2 elements are the houses within the snowglobe on a 4.25" x 4.25" card.

I made a one-layer card using Charlene's wonderful sketch.

Spring's Promise

Okay, I admit to being dense...but I am not sure I understand the challenge. Is it to use some kind of tree scene on (or in) a shape other than the standard A2 sized card? Is the emphasis on placement (tall and short) or trees (branches, etc.)? Or is it on using an unusual shape with any kind of image? I am not trying to be difficult and realize there is a LOT of freedom to interpret things, but I DO want to play within the spirit of the challenge---I just don't quite get what it is. Can you explain, pretty please? :confused:

What a fun sketch!!! Here is my card:

Thanks for looking!!!

Ignore my post above--after going through all of the cards in the CAS149 gallery so far, I think I finally "get" it. See? I told you I was a little confused sometimes. In fact, I use the on-screen name of "state of confusion" on another site I frequent. LOL.

blueheron 12-19-2011 11:01 AM

Now that I understand the challenge, I have run out of time before having to go to work--again. I'll try to come back later to play. All of the cards in the CAS149 gallery are great! Such talented people.

cjzim 12-19-2011 05:47 PM

Here is my very simple card for today - thanks for the nice sketch. I didn't get too creative with the shape because of lack of time; just made a square card.

Peace on Earth

This really is a fun card to make. I suppose cuz its a bit different in shape and we all have been making so many Christmas cards that a bit of a change is good. TYFL
