Week 235: HERO


It's time for a new cue word!  Who or what do you think of when you see this word?

"No true hero ever believes that they are one." - Neal Shusterman

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Avery Elle is returning as our sponsor and is offering this week's winner a $20 gift certificate to their online store!  Did you know they have 12 new stamp sets and 15 new dies being released this Thursday, February 9?!  They're having a designer blog hop that day and you won't want to miss it!  You can keep up with the new release and hop on their blog as well as on Facebook!

Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

Limited colours work well for graphic CAS designs.

A little bit of patterned paper goes a long way on a CAS card.

Tone on tone stamping adds interest to a background without being overly distracting.

One layer cards with one main image keep it CAS.

Silhouette stamping keeps your card CAS!

Black & white is a great color scheme for CAS design!

One main image and lots of white keep your card clean and simple!
