Heart CAS (Clean and Simple) favorites for the week ending Sunday, March 9, 2014

This is the thread where all you Clean and Simple aficionados can share all your favorites for the week with all the rest of us Clean and Simple aficionados.

I have a goodly number of favorites for this week, some of them from Virtual Stamp Night challenges. VSN is going on this weekend, and if you'd like to play, you have a week to upload your cards.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch...

MelodyGal
A new-to-me stamper with a beautiful sympathy card

Veritycards
Another new-to-me stamper who did a beautiful textured background for some lovely purple flowers

ilinacrouse
LOVE what she did with Hardwood background and the image layer

CAKath
beautiful warm colors

Tenia Sanders-Nelson
an absolutely adorable sunshine card

Loll Thompson
Lovely colors on this faux mother of pearl card

bfinlay
Such a cute tea card...love it

YoursTruly
Stunning! I will have to make one like it

ravengirl
a great green leaf card for VSN...love it, Toni

Ardyth
A WOW butterfly

hskelly
another lovely green leaf card for VSN

Arizona Maine
Great graphic card...I love how it all turned out and works together

Now could you join in the fun and post your CAS favorites?

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.


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 and hit Ctrl+V to paste your link there. Hit Enter twice to add a blank line. Repeat as many times as needed for all your links.

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

Thank you for listing my card. You have brightened my day. I haven't been on SCS much for several months (other than to upload some cards now and then ), and I hope to look around and add some of my favorites to this board before the day is over.

Here are some of my CAS favorites from last week:

Merry & Bright by cretancrafter ***NEW TO ME STAMPER***
I have a soft spot in my heart for quilt cards and I particularly love the stained glass look and pretty colors of this one.

Just for You by Veritycards[/url] ***NEW TO ME STAMPER***
Simply stunning! This CAS card, with all its embossing and pretty flowers is anything but plain and boring.

Peaceful Prayers by YoursTruly
Powerful in its simplicity, this card speaks volumes.

Birthday Wishes by mamamostamps ***NEW TO ME STAMPER***
Loved the pop of bright colors from the fun balloons against the black and white card.

Heart Rainbow by Lisa Lara
Those dimensional hearts make for the happiest rain I ever did see!

Happy Thoughts by Loll Thompson
The woodgrain embossed copper on this card is just amazing!

Lovely Tag Card by nancy littrell
The deep red with white and the tone on tone texture make for one classy CAS card.

I'm a little late with my favorites this week since I had my first bicycle race of the season this morning. I also dealt with a migraine and stomach bug this week, so I stealth-favorited a bunch of cards.

I found a lot of beautiful cards, as always. Some have been mentioned, but here are more:

Bokeh by bearpaw

SU by vdutchr

Thank you! by beesmom

The Card Concept 5 by Ardyth

Seashells by the Seashore by sanjuansue

Birthday Wishes (One-layer card) by cbuswell

I love your caring spirit by Kimberly Crawford

Winter Berries Thank You by CLOCards

Squeal Birthday by versamom

Rainforest Ferns by frenziedstamper

Healthy Greens by rebeccadeeprose

Fabulous by TreasureOiler

Thank you Susan for favoriting TWO of my cards, that is so sweet of you to include me in your list. You have brought sunshine into a very dreary day here in Oregon!

And Karen, thanks for notifying me with the good news. I appreciate the time and effort you put in to doing this. You rock!
