ATS&M #309 - CAS

It's time for another Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge.  This time it's all about CAS--an acronym for "clean & simple".

While on the surface a clean & simple (CAS) card should be a "slam dunk", it's not as easy as it seems.  You have to leave a good deal of white or empty space.  You want your card to grab the attention of your viewers with a minimum of detail.  I love making this style of card.  They make me think and plan a lot more than many of the much more detailed cards which I create.

For my card I turned to the Enjoy Life stamp set.


I spotlighted the wonderful sentiment by stamping that pretty Pineapple Punch background using the image from the Love What You Do set.  Then, after the yellow had completely dried, I dusted it over using my "embossing buddy" and stamped the sentiment with Versamark before heat embossing it with Black embossing powder.  I love how well it shows up using that technique.  I decided to keep with primary colours and so stamped the image of the girl using Lovely Lipstick ink and that sweet little butterfly using Blueberry Bushel.  To finish up I added three pale yellow sequins and the card was done.
