Week 118: HOME


Home is where the heart is!  We're sure you'll agree this word holds lots of possibilities!  Take a look at how the design team members and our guest designer interpreted this week's word!

Guest Designer:  Rahmat

Create your own focal point using minimal colors.

Stamping your sentiment on your focal image preserves white space.

Building a miniature scene keeps your design CAS.
design defined:
White on white is interesting but still CAS!

design defined:
Cluster your die cuts together to keep as much white space as possible. 
design defined:
A strip of washi tape or patterned paper is a great way to found images. 

design defined: 
Surround a detailed focal point with white space.

design defined:
Framing your main image provides interest on a CAS card.

design defined:
Dry embossing your white space can add interest and draw
you eye towards your image or sentiment.

design defined:
A sentiment doesn't need to be close to a focal point on your CAS card.

design defined:
Clean and simple often means using a single element on your card front.  Ground it with a bit of shadow.

Now go have fun creating your CAS design and don't forget to link up here on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT)!

Week 117: Weekly Winners!

It's time to announce our Weekly Winner and Honorable Mentions! 

 Joyce had the honor of selecting the Winner for Week #117 and here is the card she selected:

Lisa created such a fun sense of movement with her circle of tumbling candy corns.  I also like how she added layers but kept them white, making for an interesting card that is still very CAS.

Congratulations, Lisa!
