HLS July CAS Challenge

Hi everyone.  I'm so excited today.  It's the start of the new CAS Challenge for July and the start of our new CAS Design Team here at Happy Little Stampers.  The girls have come up with some amazingly creative and inspiring cards.  If you have time, drop by their blogs to see the details on how they made their cards, or leave a little love for them here in the comment section at the bottom of the post.  We'd love to hear from you.

Here's our new challenge ...

It's how we all got started making cards ... stamps and ink!  Time to pull them out and start creating.  You can stick to the basics, or you can use one of the many stamping techniques to create your CAS card ... whatever makes you happy.  Because that's what we're all about at Happy Little Stampers! :)

Please remember to keep your card entries CAS ...

At Happy Little Stampers, CAS  (clean and simple) is defined as:

- one main focal point
- lots of white or open (no pattern) space
- minimal layers
- minimal embellishments

This month we are excited to have Jacquie (Jacquie's Jewels) as our Guest Designer.
Welcome Jacquie!
