I love making Clean And Simple cards! I used the new Scripty Word Die Set, the Flourishes clear stamp set, and some Black Gumdrops. You may think that you can’t add texture to CAS cards, but you can using the Flourishes set just around the edges of your panel. This still leaves lots of white space, but helps your eye travel around the card.
You may also think that you can’t use embellishments on CAS card, but our fabulous Gumdrops are the perfect finishing touch – they add just a little dimension and you can use several of them and not overwhelm the card.
I hope this inspires you to create some CAS masterpieces! Thanks for stopping by! ~Maureen
Hello YNS Friends!!
Wendy here and it’s time for another Design Team Tuesday post.
This month we are featuring CAS (Clean and Simple) projects. Be sure to check out Julie and Jen’s cards from previous posts for lots of CAS inspiration!
Here is the card I created using Jungle Critter 2
White always comes to mind when I think of Clean and Simple so I decided to go with 2 layers…an embossed texture and then I popped my main image up for added dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hello YNS Friends!! Jen Roach here and it’s time for another Design Team Tuesday post. Last week we started a new theme for our Tuesday posts. In case you missed it, this time around we are featuring CAS (Clean and Simple) projects.
Those of you who follow my work know that I like to cram as much stuff as possible on my cards —it’s the scrapbooker in me! So today I’m showing you the clean and simple style with a twist.
Here’s the card I created using the new Sea Creatures one and Sea Sentiments sets. I consider my card “clean” from the white colour palette I used and “simple” because even though it looks really fancy with all the embossing and layers it literally took me less than 10 minutes to make:
1. Die cut octagon and scalloped octagons out of white paper. Stamp bubbles and seaweed onto image panel in green and blue inks. Stamp blow fish image onto white paper, colour, cut out and adhere to image panel with pop dot. Stamp sentiment in black ink onto image panel.
2. Die cut scalloped background out of white paper and emboss with embossing folder and adhere to card base.
3. Adhere image panel to card front, embellish with ribbon and Stickles.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and thanks for stopping by!!

What is CAS? (Besides being one of my favorite styles of cards!)
CAS is the acronym for Clean And Simple
Picture a card with lots of white or open space, few embellishments, and one focal point. This type of card is uncluttered, quick and easy to create. Less is more when it comes to a CAS card.
I once read that CAS is the equivalent of a LBD (Little Black Dress) for card makers.
Now on to my card featuring dies as the focal point, lots of white space and a bit of patterned paper – I always like to throw in a little pattern on my CAS cards.
