Week 118: HOME


Home is where the heart is!  We're sure you'll agree this word holds lots of possibilities!  Take a look at how the design team members and our guest designer interpreted this week's word!

Guest Designer:  Rahmat

Create your own focal point using minimal colors. 

  design defined:
Stamping your sentiment on your focal image preserves white space.

design defined:
Building a miniature scene keeps your design CAS.
design defined:
White on white is interesting but still CAS!

design defined:
Cluster your die cuts together to keep as much white space as possible. 
design defined:
A strip of washi tape or patterned paper is a great way to found images. 

design defined: 
Surround a detailed focal point with white space.

design defined:
Framing your main image provides interest on a CAS card.

design defined:
Dry embossing your white space can add interest and draw
you eye towards your image or sentiment.

design defined:
A sentiment doesn't need to be close to a focal point on your CAS card.

design defined:
Clean and simple often means using a single element on your card front.  Ground it with a bit of shadow.

Now go have fun creating your CAS design and don't forget to link up here on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT)!

It's time to announce our Weekly Winner and Honorable Mentions! 

 Joyce had the honor of selecting the Winner for Week #117 and here is the card she selected:

Lisa created such a fun sense of movement with her circle of tumbling candy corns.  I also like how she added layers but kept them white, making for an interesting card that is still very CAS.

Congratulations, Lisa!
