CASEing Myself...

Hey there!! Wow... what a gorgeous day we are having here in Washington state!  Just spent the majority of it at a local beach with my sister and her three girls.  My little one had a blast playing with his cousins and getting all covered with sand!



Got a card today for the current CASE Study challenge, as well as for ColourQ.   This week at CASE Study Chupa is asking us to make a card in our "signature style".   Now I don't know if I have a "signature style" because sometimes I feel like my style is all over the place!  But I do know that I love the Clean and Simple (CAS) style and probably make more cards in that style than any other.  I also know that when I'm confronted with a color combo that I find kind of tricky (like this week's ColourQ combo) I tend to keep things very simple.  So, for my card I CASEd a card I made a month or so ago that really exemplifies my CAS style (you can see the card here).   I used one of my favorite SU! sets, Echoes of Kindness, and a sentiment from a My Favorite Things sentiment set.  The sentiment is one of my favorites and can actually be found in my blog banner:  We do not remember days, we remember moments.   I stamped the floral image using Palette Sunflower ink (it closely matches SU!'s Crushed Curry) and then overstamped the sentiment using Old Olive.  The card base is SU!'s Island Indigo.  The pumpkin colored gems are from Hero Arts. 

And so... there you have it!  My clean and simple card.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Island Indigo; Stamps:  Stampin Up! & My Favorite Things; Ink:  Palette and Stampin Up!; Gems:  Hero Arts

Well I have to agree with you Rosie, I see you as the Queen of CAS!
(as you know), and although you make some wonderful cards in other Genre's, you really excel in this type. Having attempted CAS which to me is purgatory (as you know), I admire all who make these types of cards. This creation, like your first one is delightful, and I am crushed to know that you can just dish them out so easily, I am so envious!!!!!
