CAS57 - A New & Different Shape~abilities {March 8, 2010)
What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.

1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it.

2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique

3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques

4. any combination of the above

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

Today's CAS challenge: a new & different kind of shape-abilities.
Layer 2 different shapes on your card while keeping it CAS. I used an oval on a Top Note die cut. Our design team and guest designer have unique and inspiring ideas. Be sure to check them out and leave some love :)

Keyword: CAS57

DT samples to help you get started with ideas:

Alanna's Card

Carly's Card

Kelly's Card

Boo's Card

CAS57 Tulips in the Spring
HERE is my card...the tulips are made using the 3 part bird punch from SU!...the wings are the tulips and the branch is the stem. You can find more about it here: http://flowerbug.typepad.com

countrybeamer 03-08-2010 11:37 AM

This was a great idea for a challenge! I used an ATC I already had that fit the challenge; for the second card it was a good chance to use my new MS cupcake punch :D



lisahenke 03-08-2010 12:01 PM
