Week 35: EXTRATERRESTRIAL


Are you ready for some mystery?  Do you love exploring the unknown?  Well, this week, we're heading off into space to find out just what is dwelling in those creative minds of yours!  No, we're not implying that you are space cadets!  Much the opposite!  We know you are highly creative individuals and we can't wait to see what's hiding inside all those brilliant imaginations!  Oh, and we thought we'd also mention that Extraterrestrial Abductions Day is coming up on March 20th!  How's that for a little extra excitement on the First Day of Spring?!

Now let's take a look at what the design team and our guest designer have created for inspiration!


Guest Designer: Beate
design defined:
Washi tape is a fantastic base for an one-layer CAS card.


Jen
design defined:
Use embossing powder to add some shine to your CAS card.


Judy
design defined:
Layering and paper piecing stamped images can still be clean and simple.


Maureen
design defined:
No one says you have to stamp your sentiment only once!


Meghan
design defined:
Don't be afraid to group items on one area. White space is a hallmark of a clean and simple card.


Melissa
design defined:
Create a visual triangle with your images and sentiment.


Rosemary
design defined:
Using the "rule of 3" on your CAS design will help you keep it simple.


Tracey
design defined:
Patterned paper can be very effective on a CAS card as long and you keep the number of patterns and colours to a minimum.


Ardyth
design defined:
Simple shapes and colours can recall vivid memories!


Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your EXTRATERRESTRIAL creations by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!

  7. A fun challenge!! As soon as I saw the Cue, I thought about ET and remember how much I loved that sweet little create and the Movie!!

    I also knew that I had a couple of cute HeroArts digi images that might work out and that's exactly how my card started!!
