What's Up Wednesday - CAS

Hi everyone! Tara C. here with your What's Up Wednesday post.  I really admire the clean and simple technique.  Those paper artists that truly excel in this area make it look elegant, beautiful and oh so simple.  I thought I would give it a try and create my version of a CAS card.

Turns out this technique is super hard for me.  I made 4 different fronts for this card!  My favorite was the first I created but I kept thinking it was too simple so I kept right on trying. In the end, I used the very first one :) However, I stared and stared at this card thinking I needed to layer more stamps, more paper, more embellishments and had to keep reminding myself that the beauty of these cards is in their simplicity.  I even went to bed and woke up the next day wondering about this card and how I should/could change it!  But as I looked at it again, I realized how I quite liked it and what better way to show off the sweet images in the 'Marcel' stamp set.

A picture of the inside of the card which again is very clean and simple with a printed sentiment. The CAS technique is definitely something I am going to work on and hopefully someday I will be able to whip up one of these cards in less time than a super embellished one!

Please show us your CAS creations using Paper Wings Productions stamps!  You can post them to our Pinterest page, our Facebook page or to our Flickr gallery.  Stay tuned for the rest of the week to see what the other designers have in store for you!
