Hello friends, the theme this week at many of the challenges I'm playing along with is Clean and Simple (CAS). I've mentioned before that this is not an easy style for me and that is precisely why I am yet again entering in some of these challenges - to help myself grow creatively. I made this card for 4 great challenges - three of which I am participating in for the first time.
The first is Less Is More Week 76 - One Layer Challenge which is to make a one-layer card using 3 of something on your card. A One-layer card is defined as: "One piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped or printed directly onto the cardstock". My 3's are 3 cupcakes, 3 frames, and 3 words - oh and I used 3 rhinestones on each cupcake :o).
The second challenge CAS-ology Week#2 (a new challenge centered around the CAS concept using a word or words to spark creativity). The word for CAS-ology #2 is "Happy". I'm pretty sure you have already figured out how I have met this challenge - LOL. What is happier than cupcakes and birthdays?
Clean and Simple Stamping. The design for my card is based on the CAS FTL #199 (see below) which I have used a tumbling line of three elements instead of in a straight row.
Dynamic Duos which has a subtles theme for this week. The color combo for Dynamic Duos#11 is Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. I saw this darling baby quilt set yesterday that had cupcakes on it in these very same colors - it was so cute and inspiration struck!
And then the inside (Those circles are on there because I accidentally put an inky finger down and made a smudge that I had to disquise - thus the circles) -
Supplies (all from Stampin Up - except frame stamp): Cardstock - Whisper White. Classic ink - Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede (neutral). Stamps - Create a Cupcake, Fabulous Phrases (happy). Frame stamp is from Verve in the set called To the Moon.
