Default Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the Week Ending May 23, 2010

Welcome, one and all! This thread is an open celebration of the Clean and Simple Style of stamping. EVERYONE is invited to post links to his/her favorite CAS designs uploaded to the gallery this past week.

Clean and Simple is defined as minimal layering and embellishing...just enough stuff to get the point across. My feeling is you know CAS when you see it, so don't be shy about posting for fear of breaking any rules. Check out my favorites if you're confused...you'll see quite a range of CAS here!

I'll get us started with some of my favorites!

Kim66 posted a sweet and colorful bouquet of flowers

snail made lavender snowflakes shine

PaperInBloom posted a bunch of fabulous CAS cards this week, and this one using the Hero Arts cloud background is just a sample of all the goodness

kstamper combined challenges on her fun faux ribbon card

Vera's Best of luck card show how you can create a scene and keep it CAS, too

ltecler made a one-layer Thanks a Melon card that is fun and colorful and uses the perfect ribbon

stampinandrea caught my eye with her crisp and simple flower card

stampingout made a sweet and simply cute lady bug card

criminalgrace used liquid applique perfectly on her banner thank you card

dostamping blew me away with her gorgeous use of Elements of Style...so CAS and pretty!

StampGroover quoted Plato and distressed some paper to make a stunning CAS/shabby chic card

krista824 posted a delightfully CAS card spotlighting tiny stamps with lots of white space...so sweet!

cmustopa went shabby chic with my favorite sketch from Go-To Sketches and the results are wonderful

keuby has a great CAS eye, and her graphic and fun thank you card is so creative

hskelly used the negatives of punched butterflies beautifully on her card inspired by Biggan

PaperInBloom really was on a roll this week, and I just have to give a nod to her Many Thanks card as well

Chinook's blue botanical sympathy cards are simply beautiful

ravengirl took shabby chic and married it with CAS beautifully

CAKath made a simply natural and beautiful card with a lovely ribbon and punch border

StephStamps1982 took a Bible verse and butterfly and made a stunning card

JulieHRR used swiss dot, ruffled ribbon, and an inspired color combo on her get well soon card

biggan made brown look awesome in her shabby chic blade of grass card...note the bling peeking out from behind the distressed matte, a stroke of genius!

al_silver2 nailed CAS shabby chic with her simple ruffled congrats card

kmahany shabbied her chic beautifully with a fab chandelier stamp and tulle accent flower

If you have some time today, please comment on some CAS cards. In SCS's huge gallery, CAS sometimes gets overlooked, and there is some amazing work going without comment. Let's fix that and give some encouragement!

I added some great cards to my faves this week...Susan mentioned some of them, so I'll add these:

mugsie
defoe
stampingout
snail
briarthyme
hobbywoman
mmbc
understandblue
sparklegirl
Biggan
stampinandrea
debdeb
lisaadd
UKJem
PaperInBloom

I do have to say that this week's CAS challenge made it hard to choose CAS and shabby chic together. In my mind, it is hard to make something clean that is also shabby. So my definition of 'clean' this week got a little stretching! LOL! There were some absolutely amazing CAS shabby chic cards in the gallery!

Don't forget about the CAS summer DT search! I'm hoping for lots of stampers and lots of fun. First challenge ends at 5:00 EDT.

And I've had more time this weekend and hope to get a lot of faves on my blog this afternoon. Yeah! I've been gallery deprived for too long.

Wow! I am extremely honored to be mentioned as a CAS Favorite of The Week! Really, you have no idea how much that means to me (blush).

My friend Emily, aka ejkeaton, threw me a PM to let me know that I was mentioned. Thank you Emily, for the heads up!

I hope you all like the cards that were nominated. Again, thank you so very much!

Clean and Simple is defined as minimal layering and embellishing...just enough stuff to get the point across. My feeling is you know CAS when you see it, so don't be shy about posting for fear of breaking any rules. Check out my favorites if you're confused...you'll see quite a range of CAS here!

I'll get us started with some of my favorites!

Kim66 posted a sweet and colorful bouquet of flowers

snail made lavender snowflakes shine

PaperInBloom posted a bunch of fabulous CAS cards this week, and this one using the Hero Arts cloud background is just a sample of all the goodness

kstamper combined challenges on her fun faux ribbon card

Vera's Best of luck card show how you can create a scene and keep it CAS, too

ltecler made a one-layer Thanks a Melon card that is fun and colorful and uses the perfect ribbon

stampinandrea caught my eye with her crisp and simple flower card

stampingout made a sweet and simply cute lady bug card

criminalgrace used liquid applique perfectly on her banner thank you card

dostamping blew me away with her gorgeous use of Elements of Style...so CAS and pretty!

StampGroover quoted Plato and distressed some paper to make a stunning CAS/shabby chic card

krista824 posted a delightfully CAS card spotlighting tiny stamps with lots of white space...so sweet!

cmustopa went shabby chic with my favorite sketch from Go-To Sketches and the results are wonderful

keuby has a great CAS eye, and her graphic and fun thank you card is so creative

hskelly used the negatives of punched butterflies beautifully on her card inspired by Biggan

PaperInBloom really was on a roll this week, and I just have to give a nod to her Many Thanks card as well

Chinook's blue botanical sympathy cards are simply beautiful

ravengirl took shabby chic and married it with CAS beautifully

CAKath made a simply natural and beautiful card with a lovely ribbon and punch border

StephStamps1982 took a Bible verse and butterfly and made a stunning card

JulieHRR used swiss dot, ruffled ribbon, and an inspired color combo on her get well soon card

biggan made brown look awesome in her shabby chic blade of grass card...note the bling peeking out from behind the distressed matte, a stroke of genius!

al_silver2 nailed CAS shabby chic with her simple ruffled congrats card

kmahany shabbied her chic beautifully with a fab chandelier stamp and tulle accent flower

If you have some time today, please comment on some CAS cards. In SCS's huge gallery, CAS sometimes gets overlooked, and there is some amazing work going without comment. Let's fix that and give some encouragement!
susan, thanks so much for mentioning my snowflakes card! what a pick-me-up! i was out of town visiting my mother-in-law in hospital. thanks also to karen and ejkeaton for letting me know my card was in this thread.

Thanks for mentioning my happy little clouds, Susan. It may be a bit messy and frequently associated with complex crafting, but liquid applique can be perfect on a CAS card.

I do have to say that this week's CAS challenge made it hard to choose CAS and shabby chic together. In my mind, it is hard to make something clean that is also shabby. So my definition of 'clean' this week got a little stretching! LOL! There were some absolutely amazing CAS shabby chic cards in the gallery!
Dianne, thank you so much for including my card in your list this week; a great pick-me-up! it was a very challenging card to make and i'm glad you like it. thanks also to karen and ejkeaton for letting me know my card was in this thread.
