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

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

************************************************** *******
CAS Challenge: Shabby Chic
Shabby Chic is a style of stamping that includes torn edges, muted colors, and imperfections. In short, it could be characterized as making a new card look old and distressed.

Jen, this was a challenging challenge for me....but fun! In my mind "vintage" and "CAS" don't always mesh too well. I'm sure other stampers have done a spectacular job with it, but it is a stumbling block for me since I'm not very good at either of these two styles. Anyway, I had fun.

I agree with Sallie!! This was really hard for me, too, although I enjoyed the challenge! I've been experimenting with vintage/shabby chic lately and have loved trying my hand at it. But CAS shabby chic?? Wow, that's hard! I tried really hard to use shabby chic elements but keep it CAS, and my result just doesn't really click. Looks sorta blah. But I worked hard on it so here's my upload:

BC Sherrie 05-17-2010 09:58 AM

Love the shabby chic! Here is my vintage/shabby card...I used some OLD eyelet fabric I had kicking around to make the flower.


ejkeaton 05-17-2010 10:26 AM

OK, I was rather dissatisfied with my first attempt at today's challenge, so I had to give it another try. This one feels much better to me:

CAS67 Shabby Vase & Flowers
HERE is mine. My cardstock is Bazzill Wedding Shimmer; the vase is punched with the ornament punch and the flowers are Primas. I used Flower Soft wire coming out of the vase; added adhesive pearls and we're done.


StephStamps1982 05-17-2010 11:28 AM

It's clean and simple, and it covers two challenges in one! Yay!

Here's my card "With God".

I think the paper fits the Shabby Chic bill...and the pinks and reds as well...

Thanks for looking! Happy Stampin! God Bless!

T. Joy 05-17-2010 12:16 PM

Here's mine! It has the vintage, the distressing and the torn look... but I used darker colors. Hope it's still ok!!


jojot 05-17-2010 12:20 PM

Phew...no black....no matting.....so out of the box for me....
