Clearly Digi Stamp July Blog Hop

 Clean and SimpleMonthly Blog Hop

FarmCrittersDPJULYBlogHopOkay that sounds easy, right?  So then, why do I have such a tough time making a Clean and Simple Card.  I generally don’t make a card with along of embellishments – a few yes, a lot no.  But I do LOVE my designer papers and lots and lots of layers – not so clean and simple.  I had my card all done without the twine and brad and I just couldn’t leave it alone – it was just to-o-o bare for me but I think this still qualifies for Clean and Simple as I left a lot of white space and printed the sentiment onto the mat to reduce a layer.  I hope you enjoy it!

    Your cute CAS card made me squeal with delight. Nice job! CAS is a challenging style for me too especially since I love designer papers. Thanks so much for joining us this week at ATS&M.


  2. Very cute card!! I’m getting a sense from the DT that CAS is hard to accomplish! What’s so funny is I’m a CAS gal, and I have trouble adding all kinds of embellishments!!


  3. It’s the amount of ‘white’ space that really defines a card as CAS and this definitely fits the bill! It’s so cute. I love the way you colored the area around the pig with little multicolored dots. It looks great. I will have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing the card.


    visit anytime!


  4. I do think this one applies for CAS. Lots of white space even with the twine and brad. LOL! Great card and that piggie is adorable sitting in his mud puddle. Lots of fun!


  5. Your card is adorable and I love your layers but for Cards in Envy we ask for A2 (4.25″ x5.5″) cards only, no square cards. This is to go along with out challenge of cards that can be mailed in a regular first class envelope with no extra postage. I know some square cards can fit that requirement but in the challenge it’s hard to tell the actual size of square cards so we can’t have them in the challenge. I do hope you’ll join us again on another challenge or even enter another card for this challenge.
    Thanks for your understanding

    • Oh shoot! I missed the part about NO square cards – thanks for letting me know!
      CAS and simple cards are a challenge for me and I was just excited to think I could play along with one of your challenge 🙂
      Next time, I’ll make an A2 card!


  6. What a fun image Dee. I forgot that I even had this one. Love it. From the design, to the layering, to the coloring of the image, this is just wonderful. Love that addition of bakers twine. It really ties it all together. Hugs.


  7. Oh Dee, this is an adorable sample of clean & simple!!! I love your coloring of this darling pig. The twine and brad are the perfect finishing touch too.



Thank you so much for stopping by, I just love hearing from you!
