Fall Gold – Outlawz CAS / StampTV Friday Free For All

One Layer Cards are not as difficult for me as they used to be, but it still takes me a lot longer to come up with a design I really like.  I believe one of the reasons CAS (clean and simple) design is so challenging for beginners is that you have to create interest with one focal.  Embellishments must be diminished, and yet powerful.  They can’t simply be there because they are the right color or because you need to hide a mistake.  They must, in my humble opinion, make sense in the design.   This design worked well for both challenges.  I am always glad when I can knockout two challenges with one design!  C-YA!

Supplies:  Neenah Solar White Linen CS;  Image: GinaK Stamps Falling For You Collection; Sentiment: Inkadinkadoo Autumn Greetings; Ink: Momento Ink Rich Cocoa; Misc.  Baker’s Twine, buttons.

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
