ATSM Challenge #159 – CAS

I’m back with another fun challenge from ATSM. Our challenge this week is:


Addicted to Stamps and More!

Our Sponsor for this week:

The prize is 7 digis!

I made 3 cards to share with you today. Here is the first, and most CAS, one.

IMG_7655edited_edited-1I decided that I was not quite happy with this card and the following 2. So, I rounded the top corners and am much happier with them now. What do you think? With or without rounded corners?

IMG_9991edited The Love Conquers All image which I used for this card was generously supplied by this week’s ATSM Challenge #159 sponsor Bugaboo Digi Stamps.Β 

These next two are not that CAS, but I’ll share them with you anyway because I had so much fun with this image.

IMG_7659edited_edited-1IMG_9996editedI wanted to give you an idea of the different looks that you can get with this one image.

IMG_7666_edited-1Make sure you stop over at ATSM to check out the beautiful, fun and creative selection of DT cards. Enjoy, play along, link up!

I’d like to play this 3rd card over at Uniko’s Challenge #24: Summer.

Slide1Here are the rules for the CAS Challenge.

Clean & Simple (CAS) – your entry MUST be Clean and Simple. This means that clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of ‘white’ space should be used.
* White space does not need to be ‘white’. It can be any color. White space is a term used for the area of your card with no stamping, embellishments etc.
