Heart Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the Week Ending August 23, 2014

Hello Fellow CAS Stampers,

It was another wonderful week on SCS and I had a hard time keeping my list of favourites to a reasonable number. Here's what I absolutely had to list:

First off, because I love Christmas cards best of all, some wonderful ones members are getting done ahead of time:

CAS286 TLC495 Woodland Peace by hobbydujour - love the icy blues and the unique use of stencils

Merry Christmas - Heartfelt Creations by rosekathleenr - traditional colours and a beautiful floral border

Red And White Ornaments - Christmas CAS by OksanaClegg - ornaments stamped with a Christmas carol done in classic red and white by a new-to-me stamper

Heirloom Reflections Ornament 4 by lorettal - my favourite in a series of similar ornament cards by a new-to-me stamper

CTC 6 - Kids by BronJ - inspiring use of a new stamp from the SU Holiday Catalogue - another new-to-me stamper

black, gold and silver by mjs1033 - great die-cuts for a black, gold, and silver challenge - love the use of silver birches for the silver part

And now some non-Christmas:

Clean and Simple by ohmypaper! - CAS perfection done with a sweet pink heart and some gemstones

IC455 Thank You by hskelly - a great take on an inspiration photo, and a sentiment that works perfectly with the image

Bright Grunge by mfb - love this use of a grunge stamp and some banners

Harlequin Flower by Pam MacKay - beautiful layering of two different stencils

Using the kids' art/science experiment by YoursTruly - very interesting background layer done as a children's art/science experiment

CC492 Sending Prayers by beesmom - a beautiful sunset/moonrise scene outside a window

Bloom with Hope for Queen Dini by bon2stamp - love the vibrant colours and the fabulous colouring of the flowers

You Are So Sweet by Loll Thompson - beautiful stencilling, shades of blue, and a vibrant blue metal leaf

CC492 Party Cake by Arizona Maine - a cake with fabulous dimension and decoration, and the most perfect sentiment

FC:CAS286 by Reddyisco - wonderful elegance in black and white

FS393 Hello Diane by catluvr2 - perfect colours and a great lattice die

I had such a good time finding all these wonderful cards this week. Now I want to see what the rest of you found!

Susan and Diane, thank you SO much for mention a card of mine as one of your favorites for the week. It always thrills me to be in this thread since CAS is a style that I greatly admire and strive to be better at. Thank you, Karen, for giving up so much of each and every Sunday to bring joy to others with your notifications. Hugs, Sallie

Not much (enough!) time in the gallery this week, but that doesn't mean there weren't favorites uncovered in the time I had...

Triangle Celebration by karrenj
Loved the bold sentiment paired with the bright geometrics.

Just Saying Hello by lisa lara
Again with the bright, happy colors -- they snag me every time. Add in some cute birdies and I'm in love.

Happy Birthday, Nonni by Loll Thompson
The beautiful cut doily really sets off the pretty flower.

Happily Ever After by Simone N *** NEW-TO-ME STAMPER ***
Simple yet elegant!

Paper Players Challenge by lhs43
Just an all around fun birthday card.

Thank you Oddesigns for mentioning my card! I made it for my BIL's birthday and then panicked that it was perhaps too CAS...some folks don't appreciate that style or understand how hard it is to make a balanced, good looking CAS card! Thank you, thank you!
