Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

It's a sunny Monday here.....chilly and some snow on the ground of course....but sunny and gorgeous!!  Hope some of you are enjoying some nice weather and perhaps even a day off today!!


From Millan.Net

Today's challenge is simply simple!!'s a CAS challenge!!  Clean And Simple.  Now that can be interpreted don't be afraid of it!  And it's something I don't do too often...but I do enjoy sometimes!  ;)  Just have as part of your design some "white" space...or space that isn't all layered and decorated up! you know why it can be a challenge for me!  LOL  And it doesn't have to be white...but whatever color is your base color usually.


So you see how I still get away with some layers and bling but have quite a bit of free space?  Yeah...that's me....I'm sneaky that way! LOL  And this card uses one of my FAVORITE sets,Let It Snow!!  I used Faber-Castell Gelatos and ran the pink one lightly over the white cardstock panel that had been embossed.  And the color I used matches perfectly with the Innocent Pink!!!  And see?  Even some pearls and ribbon and still a CAS card!!!  ;)  Show me your CAS!!!


You must have your creations uploaded by 8PM CST on Sunday, January 26th.

Beautiful card Lee. Love this challenge… :)

Great CAS card, Lee!  See, you can do CAS and do it well.

That is a gorgeous work of art Lee! Just so fantastically done and it has an elegant look to it as well. I will try to get an entry in. I just love clean and simple. My style mostly!

Fun Challenge. I'm mostly a CAS person anyway. Love the pink snowflake.

i really like this card Lee.  sweetly beautiful 

I think you do fabulous CAS! And gotta love the pink!

That is a lovely card Lee! I'm so happy to be able to play with you ♥

Oh, dear! I did play but might have made my card too cluttered. But it does have lots of open space in it. So hope it will qualify still. HERE is what I came up with and finished this evening. I might have to play again this week. I had so much fun!

Beautiful! CAS never looked so good!

CAS is always a beautiful card. Even though it doesn't have all of that ribbon and bows and blings. Still elegant. Nicely done Lee. :)

Here is my try. I have not been card making for a long time due to the death of my dad. (My parents passed 17 months apart) And if felt pretty good to be making cards again. I am glad my first attempt was simple! Looking forward to seeing what everyone makes.


Gorgeous card Lee!!!!
