Late Blossom, thank you so much for starting this thread. I, too, love the clean and simple look, but I have been discouraged many a time when I see some of the masterpieces out there. It's so good to hear that more complex isn't always better. By the way, I love your gallery and will be going there often for inspiration!

Thanks! You should definitely start a gallery and let go of the discouragement. Let's put Clean and Simple out there for everyone to see!

I'm a clean and simple gal myself. I honestly can't colour to save my life! So I stick mostly with solid images.

Some of my favourite super simple cards I've made can be seen here, here and here.

Thank you for starting this thread. I am just now starting into cardmaking and I was quite intimidated by all the layered/embellished cards. I'm in the minority of people that have a hard time with visual clutter. What I consider clutter, other people love. I understand that -- our house is very sleek and simple as is my papercrafting.

I have found when I try to force myself into a style I'm not comfortable with, I can't be creative. I can copy a card or whatever but I can't create one of my own.

I did very simple Christmas cards and people liked them so I'm happy for that. Even with my "non-clutter" mentality, there are multi-layered cards that I love. I guess when there's different kinds of pattern paper, it throws me off.

Anyway, I'm so glad this thread has appeared. I feel soooo much better now. I can go and create and not worry about stacking up to the extremely creative people.

I haven't even done any cards except Christmas so haven't uploaded any to a gallery but I will -- sooner or later.

Susan, I love your gallery! Another CAS girl here. I like cards that don't take forever to make and are still striking.

Awesome thread. I've just had a chance to go through and get out some cards and galleries and I've found some new places to haunt! Lovely ideas!

A masterpiece isn't a gazillion layers and embellishments. A masterpiece is whatever you make it, including your own work, no matter what. Let's face it, we'll never be queens or a Featured Stamper or have 10 pages of comments within 5 minutes of an upload, so instead of wishing you could create like the queens and doubt your lack of talent because you don't, or whatever discouraging label you've slapped on yourself, start embracing your style and your own work and you'd be amazed at what you can do when you start having fun with this again. I think too many of us have made this a self-imposed competition and I can certainly understand why, but while a comment is great, the smile that you see on somebody's face when they personally receive your card is priceless.

A piece of advice from a very well-known stamper, author and artist, Kim Hughes, "just have fun."

Welcome to posting on SCS! I'm so glad this thread has helped you feel more confident in your own clean style. It's certainly got me over my momentary lapse of confidence!

Try to start a gallery SOONER, please, so we can all enjoy your uncluttered style. The more, the merrier!

I am loving this thread. I am much more on the CAS side than the super fancy side of card making. I am still fairly new to cardmaking though too. I love seeing all these simple, yet beautiful cards and getting great inspiration at the same time.

I'm another CAS stamper...I recently have been adding more layers to my cards but really love to fall back on my true love, Fabriano's, gorgeous Italian watercolor paper. It just screams to be cas:

Fabriano projects

Thanks for starting this thread...It is a pleasure to see other CAS stampers...

I read about this thread on the Sugar Nellie blog this morning and immediately thought 'at last!' 18 months ago all my cards were CAS, I didn't know any different! I like to stamp and colour my image, that's what excites me about making cards, I guess I am a frustrated artist as I can't draw for toffee but I love to colour in with pencils or inks. Last year I challenged myself to do all the SC sketches - well I've almost done it - to try and help me make more of my cards. But at the end of the day I still struggle adding papers, flowers and twiddly bits and have it look artistic! Most of the cards in my gallery are fairly CAS and I posted one on my blog today that certainly fits the bill. Now I know there is a CAS tag I shall be adding it quite often!
hugs, annie x

For me the 'simple' cards are the hardest ones to do!!! I love all my embellishments, flowers, charms, glitter - and I LOVE coloring!!!
So this was really hard for me, but I tried some:

>>> Simple

Thanks to all you talented ladies for all your inspiration! I love your CAS cards!!!

Croc for Pierre by Cook22 at Splitcoaststampers
I've made this one at least twice more since I posted this one up, great for an in-a-hurry young boy's birthday.
And I was really happy with this one I made for Mothermark's tea-party last week - MMTPT30, Honey Won't You Bee Mine by Cook22 at Splitcoaststampers.

What I fun thread...I read this yesterday and you girls inspired me to try a simple card...I might have to do a lot more. I love them too, I just never do them. It seems like I need more to make it great...but this one is ok I think.

Gallery at Splitcoaststampers

Thanks for all your inspiration!!

I really love the look of the CAS, and admire those that can pull it off.

I have tried many times and everytime, I feel it is incomplete somehow. I am the same way with the Scrapbook Classes I teach, a plain white background makes me run, lol....

someday, I will learn the art of CAS. In the meantime, I will just keep practicing

This made me lol! I LOVE white background sb pages, esp with brightly colored kid pictures (ie playgrounds and such) and fun embellies. The white makes the colors pop.

I think it's great that we all have our own style and feel comfortable expressing it.

LateBlossom, thank you for this thread! I never knew about CAS but am inspired to "pare" down. And your gallery is full of beautiful cards, I favorited one just so I can keep visiting! I never get too creative with the embellishments and I definitely have cards that scream at me: "you should have left well enough alone after the 4th embellishment.......!!" I usually prefer the ones that are sort of in the middle ground. Here is one of my christmas cards that was very easy and I thought it came out looking nice-
etruscan christmas 2 by kingmontmom at Splitcoaststampers
I had just bought the etruscan set and I really liked it.

Amy is my favorite CAS stamper, and I was going to link her gallery here if she didn't see this thread!

I, on the other hand, think it's best to put one of everything in my stamp room on every single card, and then add glitter!!! Works for me!!

I, on the other hand, think it's best to put one of everything in my stamp room on every single card, and then add glitter!!! Works for me!!
Thanks Sista.....you know how much I **LOVE** your glitter'licious works of art!!!

I want to thank you all for inspiring me to upload to the gallery. I didn't think that my simple cards could compete with all the other ones out there! Thanks for reminding me that I love what I create and I should share it with others.

Thanks again!
