Default Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for Week Ending SATURDAY, August 4, 2018

I saw a meme on Facebook this week that asked the question, "Is it just me, or did June and July last like 5 minutes?" When I turned the calendar over to August this week, I had to agree - the summer is just zooming by. I hope you are savoring each moment and looking forward to lots of summer fun this month, including Dare to Get Dirty Challenges, which started today.

Here are my CAS Favorites from this past week.
TLC701, Good Times by kdunbrook
I just love Karen's style and this card's sunny yellow and great sentiment earned it a trip to my Favorites folder.

Broadway Birthday Hooray by dostamping
Dawn's choice of various black and gold elements, combined with lots of white space on her card base makes for a classy CAS look.

Blended Seasons in Fall Colors by designzbygloria ***NEW-TO-ME-STAMPER ***
I loved Gloria's column of turning leaves, combined with the subtle pattern in her patterned paper.

Joy and Berries by susanbri
Susan's holiday card is total CAS elegance. I loved the depth of color she achieved.

You are a Ray of Sunshine kth by kthaman
I'm pretty sure that, regardless of the kind of day you had, when you lookat Karen's happy card, you have to feel uplifted.

Vintage Style Watercoloured Flowers by limedoodle
Debby's coloring skills always wow me and this beautiful rose card is no exception.

CC698 Holly Noel by CherylQuilts
It's the little details than can take a CAS design up a notch. In the case of Cheryl's holly card, that perfect detail is her choice of embossing folders behind her focal image.

Shake a Tail Feather by housesbuiltofcards
Heather's black-white-yellow theme really caught my eye.

My today and tomorrow by Preethisc *** NEW-TO-ME-STAMPER***
One look at this beauty and I was in love - such beautiful colors and a great CAS design.

F4A441 MIX288 Always a Friend by hobbydujour
Sallie's red umbrella card is a beautiful reminder that CAS is about the design and not the use of a white card base.

Hummer and Flowers by whippetgirl
I really liked Lee Ann's vibrant coloring.

A Note of Thanks by kiagc
Kia's beautiful result from the alcohol lift off technique make me want to give this technique a try.


So now it's your turn - what CAS beauties did YOU uncover this week? Share your picks with us. If, like me, you also found some beauties that aren't CAS in style, I invite you to share those cards on this week's regular CAS Favorites thread.

This thread is open to everyone and is a great way to recognize the work of SCS's many talented CAS artists.

There are really only two "rules" here on the thread:

The Gallery posts you link to should be in the CAS style...

--------------------------------
And what does it mean to be Clean and Simple?
It's all about the design.
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

--------------------------------

...and they should be from the past week.


Did you find your way to this thread because someone listed one of YOUR creations as a favorite? In addition to saying thank you, we encourage you to pay that smile you're probably wearing right now forward by sharing a few of the cards/projects YOU favorite-ed this week.

If this is your first time being mentioned in this thread or you have a new blog we have blog badges found here in this post.

Need help linking your Favorites? Follow these steps:

1. Load this week's Favorites thread in your first browser tab. Scroll down and click the Go Advanced button.

2. Open a second tab (or a separate window). Go to the Gallery and click on "My Favorites."

3. Click on a card you have saved. At the top, highlight the web address. Hit Ctrl+C to copy.

4. Switch back to the first tab. Type the cardmaker's SCS name, add a couple of spaces and hit Ctrl+V to paste your link there. Hit Enter twice to add a blank line.

5. Repeat as many times as needed for all your links.

6. Click the Preview Post button and check that your links work. Then click the Submit Reply button.

Thank you Debbie for starting the thread. Thank you Karen for sending the happy mail every week. We all really appreciate you volunteering your time.

Here are my CAS favorites this week:

WT699 Mulberry Paper by Holstein - at Splitcoaststampers


I did not get as much gallery time this week as I had planned, many late work nights this week. So that being the case I missed a bunch of amazing CAS cards. Show us your CAS favorites. What did I miss?

Happy crafting!

Oh, sweet Susan (susanbri), thank you so much for including my CC698 Holly Noel card in your list this week! You've honored me so, and it made me smile this Monday morning (after having realized that they delivered the wrong tile for our walk-in shower -- yikes!). But life goes on, and it's a joy to be delighted. Thank you! And, precious friend, sweet Karen, thank you for notifying me. You are all so dear in this lovely CAS favorites thread! Hugs, all my loves! xoxo
