Week 60: APPLE

Tuesday, September 3, 2013


An apple a day.  If it were only that easy!  Let's help each other get our fill of apples this week!  Soon we'll be visiting the apple orchards, drinking hot apple cider and filling up on warm apple pie!  It's time to dream up some apple creations and share them with each other!  We're betting you'll come up with some wonderful card design recipes!

Cindy Coutts is returning as our sponsor this week with a wonderful prize for this week's winner:  My Favorite Things Die-Namics Dainty Bows and Blue Prints 3!  How's that for a fantastic prize?!

Now let's see what this week's guest designer and the CASology design team created for inspiration!

Guest Designer:  Sandie
design defined:
Adding texture such as heat embossing adds interest and mixing sentiments to play on your image choice can add a fun element to your CAS card.

design defined: 
Using only stamps, ink and paper is a sure way to keep your card CAS!

design defined:
Using a negative die cut can highlight your patterned paper while keeping the rest of your card CAS.

design defined:
Using 6x6 paper packs helps to coordinate colours and keep your design cohesive.

 design defined:
Complimentary patterns in small doses can add interest to a CAS card.

design defined:
Staying mainly within one third of the card + lots of open space = a CAS card!
design defined:
Use patterned paper sparingly on your CAS cards!

design defined:
Sometimes it's nice to focus on the simple part of clean and simple.

  design defined:
Don't be afraid to use an uncolored image!  This helps keep things CAS!

design defined:
A simple layout is perfect for a clean and simple card.

design defined:
Create a frame around a smaller design to anchor it to your project.
