Guest Designer - CAS on Friday

Hello, everyone!  I'm excited to announce that I am a Guest Designer at CAS on Friday for Challenge 171.  Our theme this fortnight is Winter.  I hope you'll head over and check out all the CAS winter inspiration and then join our challenge!


You probably already know that CAS stands for Clean and Simple, and it also means:
  • Lots of open space; 
  • Limited layers and embellishments; 
  • Quick and easy to create; and
  • Keep it simple.
CAS on Sunday

For my card, I die-cut a snowflake semi-circle from a white panel and adhered it to a blue alcohol ink background that I made some time ago.  I stamped the sentiment and that's it!  

I decided to make a second card but this time used a double-stitched rectangle die, but it's still a CAS card.


Here are both cards together.  I hope you'll be inspired to join our challenge at CAS on Friday!  You can find the rules for the challenge here


I would also like to support the following challenges: ABC Christmas A for Anything Goes Christmas UE: Arty Divas 12 AG 2/5; Brown Sugar AG 2/2; Cardz TV 105 AG 2/3; Crafty Creations AG 2/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Optional Recycle or Use Something Old UE; DL.ART January Linky UE 1/d; Incy Wincy AG 1/5; Kat Scrappiness No Designer Paper UE; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Always AG 2/3; The Outlawz Festive Friday Jan. 10-23 Christmas UE; Word Art Wednesday 420-421 AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk1 2/5; Your Scrapbook Place AG 2/3

Thank you for looking at my cards! Wishing you a joyful day!

Congratulations, Kitty, on your guest designer position! These cards are awesome - the background is perfect for a snowflake front. My favourite is the one with the stitched border as that extra bit of detail just finishes the card. Terrific work :)

Beautiful CAS card, Kitty. I have the hardest time making CAS cards. I start a CAS card and can't leave it well enough alone and before long, it's not longer CAS!!! Thank you for the inspiration.
Have a great weekend.

This die cut is so beautiful against the blue backgrounds you've made. I'll have to send you an email about what die cut machine you use. I can't find replacement plates for my Cuttlebug and my die cutting is suffering for it.

So beautiful. Congrats on being a guest designer!
