I have to confess.....when I started stamping, I was all about adding many layers and filling up every space on my cards or layouts. Thanks to so many talented CAS crafters out there, especially to my designer sisters at Our Daily Bread designs, I have learned to tone things down a bit. Though I still love to "oogle" those projects which I call "involved", and still create them as well, I am loving the simplicity of "Clean and Simple". Our Daily Bread designs' vast stamp collection, plus the growing line of Custom Cutting Dies, makes it even easier to create fast, simple, and beautiful designs!!
Originally, "Clean and Simple" stood for mostly one layer, minimal stamping, simple embellishments, and mostly open "clean" space. Since many of us are learning that "less is more", "Clean and Simple" to many means that there has been a huge step taken toward simplifying. So....since it seems that there are now many "degrees" of CAS, our new feature here at ODBD is "Clean and Simple....to the Third Degree". Each post will show a few very CAS cards, others with a little more "meat on the bones", and others which may have a couple of layers, but with a very simple design which would be easy to duplicate. Enjoy the different "degrees" of CAS below!!!
Thanks for stopping by today! We hope you enjoyed the CAS (and not-so-CAS) samples!! God bless!!
