Hi there! Sharon and The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has an exciting 12 days of CAS inspiration planned, beginning today...
"Welcome to Day 1 of The 12 Days of a Clean and Simple Christmas - Stamp Simply Style. This ongoing series will feature cards that are CAS (clean and simple), making it quick and easy to recreate them or even mass produce them for the Christmas season. Likewise, our posts will be short and sweet as well -- nothing to bore you or take up a lot of time -- just sharing some ideas for CAS Christmas creations! Hope you'll join us for this 12 days series."
Well, I'm going to go for it in the next 12 days to see how much CAS I can come up with! Hmmm....it's definitely a challenge for me. My cards are usually pretty simple, but don't know how clean I can get them?!?
I began with regular cardstock...NO decorator paper for me today! In fact, white cardstock rarely makes an appearance in any of my typical designs! I do love, love, LOVE decorator paper though, and will be right back with it for tomorrow's design.
The stamp set that I've used for today is JustRite's new "Christmas Trimmings." I really fell for the wreath and swag when I first laid eyes upon it. I must admit that I would not mass produce any design that took a lot of time with coloring, but this went fairly quickly, with hardly any shading involved.
I stamped the images out with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamping the swag directly onto the white background panel. After coloring with my Copic Sketch markers, I die cut the wreath and cherry layer with Spellbinder Classic Circle dies (check with Sharon for availability).
A May Art's Wrinkled Ribbon bow adds the final touch to this CAS design.
Here's a link for the entire Christmas section over at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
