Another entry for CASual Fridays

If you're here to see my card for the Lily Pad Cards blog, please scroll down 2 posts, please.

Here's another entry for the CASual Fridays challenge, to use text prominently in our creation.   This one I love, but I'm not so sure it would be considered CAS.  I'd love some suggestions, please.  Is there too much going on to be considered CAS?  And when I think of CAS cards, they're always on a white ground - is color allowed?


supplies: periwinkle cardstock, text from an old book, Hero Arts S5324 Simple Frame, CL428 Earth Flowers, CL430 Real Garden Petals, Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, peeled paint distress, and versafine onyx black inks


We'll be away for a few days visiting my Mom, so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Mother's Day!!  I received some gourmet brownies in the mail today, so I'm a happy Momma!!

You are fast becoming a CAS stamping genius!I love love love the stamping and the text background adds so much to this design! YAY, Lin!

Michele Gross said...

Gorgeous Lin! YES color is allowed and welcome!! So often times "white space" is mentioned when defining CAS. I think open space is a better description as there isn't a color reference to get in the way :) Love that you stamped your images right over the text :) Glad to see more of your creations at CAS-ual Fridays!

I've never seen this technique before. It's simple and beautiful.
Cheers!

Lin, I think you have the idea of CAS...I like to think of not necessarily "white space" but any space, just like you left around the outside of your frame. (But that's just me!) I also think it means few layers, and you have achieved that, too. (I mean layers of paper and embellies, not stamping!) Anyway, this is another beautiful entry into the CAS-usal Fridays challenge. Great job...again!

Darla said...

This is VERY pretty! Love it!

Dawn T said...

this is wonderful Lin. Love this frame. the more I see it the more I want it... so versatile.

Julie Day said...

Ooo this one I love too! Your stamped images over the text are beautiful. Love how you chose the blue for your card base ( I always have a problem straying away from white lol) This is definitely CAS though, clean lines, open space and all about the design :) Thanks for playing with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

Karen B. said...

Bring on the color! I think CAS is wherever you want to take it and you took it to a fine place with this card! Hope you are having fun playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

Hi, Lin! What a gorgeous card! This is simply stunning! Love it! I wouldn't change a thing! :-)

Betty said...

great card lin! love the stamping over text technique.

Karolyn at Paper Therapy said...

Gorgeous!! And yes, you absolutely can use a colored background - "white space" is a generic term for lots of wide open space, no matter the color. That frame image is really cool, and I love the addition of the newsprint. I would say that you are totally catching on to the CAS style, and look forward to seeing more progression and beautiful inspiration from you in our future challenges! Thanks again for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!!
