Week #25: NEW

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Happy New Year!  Can you believe 2012 is behind us and a brand new 2013 has begun?!  Just think of all the new adventure that awaits us!  To welcome all the new beginnings that come with the turn of a calendar page, we thought we'd use an appropriate cue word:


To ring in the new year, we have one of our fabulous sponsors returning with not one, but TWO wonderful prizes!


Cindy Coutts is offering the winner from this week's challenge Stampin' Up!'s new firm foam ink pads in the following colors:  Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red!  There's nothing like starting your new year off with new ink, is there?!

She's also started some online card classes and is offering one free class membership to a random participant!

Be sure and check out her upcoming class:

Now let's see what the design team and our guest designer, Deb, have for inspiration this week!

Guest Designer:  Deb
 design defined:
An almost one layer card with one repeated stamped image, a single sentiment, and a little bit of bling keeps it CAS.


Tracey 
design defined:
Small focal images can be supported with patterned paper or other elements and still keep the overall design CAS. 


Ardyth
design defined:
 I added dimension and interest by curling the butterfly's wings and having them go 'over the edge'.


Jen
design defined:
Washi tape is a super fun but simple accent.
 
Judy
design defined:
Paper-piecing is a fun way to add some interest and color to a CAS card.


Maureen
design defined:
For proper flow and balance on a One Layer Card, place your image and sentiment on opposite sides of your card.

 
Meghan
design defined:
Tilt a focal point and/or sentiment on its side to provide interest.


Melissa
design defined:
Sometimes simply rotating your card base either horizontally or vertically can change the look of your design.


Rosemary
design defined:
  A simple row of images stamped in different colors and placed at various heights creates a clean and simple design.

Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your own NEW creation by Sunday at 4 p.m. (CST)!  Yes, the deadline has been extended to allow you a little more time to create!

  6. Oh, my goodness! I am so excited to discover this blog and all the fabulous inspiration. I love the design team samples, but especially appreciate the little tips given for those of us who find CAS challenging. I'm resolving this year to stretch my crafting style to include more CAS designs and this challenge blog will be the perfect way to do it. I've submitted my very first one. I was actually happy with the way it turned out. Can't believe it! Whoo-hoo! And thanks to Marlou McAlees, mutual friend, for leading the way here!!!
