Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello Everyone! I am so excited to bring you this Weeks Challenge. 

So, I decided to do a Clean And Simple (CAS) Challenge!

I love the look and it is a real challenge not to get lost in

creating and filling in all the open spaces.   :)

Less Is More! 

Be sure and leave some open areas on your card

so it will reflect a Clean & Simple Look! 

So my Challenge to you is:

CAS (Clean And Simple), One Layer, No Ribbon

Come play along in our Challenge this Week for a chance to

win a grab bag of goodies from Gina K. Designs! 

Here is my sample:

This card is made with Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury Heavy Base

Hope you get a chance to play along.

I know you all will create wonderful cards! Can't wait to see them…  :)

 Ok, get your glasses if you need them! Here is the small print:

What a butterfly!!!!!!! I love the vibrant colors and CAS look. Great "challenge" for me because I can't stop :)  

BEAUTIFUL!  I love my layers....this will be a Challenge!   ;)

CAS is on my list of fav's but so is layering. Now to get a plan in my head! Gorgeous card and fun challenge Karen.

Beautiful CAS card. Great coloring on the butterfly. Fun challenge!

wowza Karen!  I mean, can you get anymore WOW with a CAS card?  I think not!  LOVE it

Stunning card, Karen and I love that butterfly both inside and out.

First of all I love the card you created and I love the challenge. Your butterfly is spectacular! Even if this is the only card I make I am glad I entered and had some fun. HERE is my card.

Beautiful butterfly and card

Here is another one I made and it is really a clean and simple one. Enough play time and time to do housework that has been neglected. So at least I had some fun today!

Beautiful card Karen. Will try to get one in for the challenge but as I'm going out of town for a few days may not have time. Won't be on line for at least a 10 days I don't think.

beautiful card. I love the challenges. I used to get a card magazine that was published every quarter and every quarter they had a two page 13 week challenge layout. Things like, "This week, find a stamp in your stash that you have forgotten and make a card with it." It always encouraged me to think outside the box. I love the cards created by the moderators. They are a very talented team.

Thank You all for your response to my challenge! I'm glad you all like it and I love seeing all the creations in the gallery! I know it is a real challenge to leave a card Clean & Simple, when you really just want to fill in all the blank space with something. Thank You for your fabulous creations and I'll be looking for more in the gallery!  Happy Stamping…  :)
