This week I am the Guest Designer on Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge!  The challenge is a sketch, and I made 3 cards using it.

The Father’s Day card is a 1-layer card and was very CAS to make.

The daisy card, although having 5 layers, was still a very quick and simple card to make thanks to some Nestabilities and punches.

The button was mounted with a black foam tape circle so that the holes would look more pronounced.

The final card uses one of my new Waltzing Mouse sets.  I have been wanting needing some of these wonderful stamps for quite some time and was excited when they arrived this past week!

This was the most difficult card to make of the 3 only because it involved embossing.  The embossing powder always seems to make such a mess for me, so I don’t use it that often.  But, LOVE the results!  And I needed to stamp and emboss the image twice.. once for the main image and once for the punched butterfly.

It was SO fun to know in advance what the CAS challenge would be!  Thanks for giving me the opportunity this week to be a Guest Designer.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Super great CAS cards! You’re doing your job well! I especially love the sailboat card. So serene.

  2. Well done Susan, love the one with the boat and also the tree – congrats for beeing the guest designer at SCS/CAS you certainly deserve it!

  3. Wowww, your attention to the small details is what I love about your style. That butterfly in the tree is SUCH a clever and beautiful idea, and I totally LOVE that masculine card with the sponging going from dark to lighter at the top, the gems along the bottom, and the orange one as the sun. How cool!!

  4. I love these cards. My favorite is the tree with the butterfly because it is so unexpected. It is so interesting to see 3 cards using the same sketch but are so very different. Great job.

  5. Gorgeous cards, Susan! Love that weeping willow tree!

  6. Three fabulous cards, Susan! Love them all 🙂

  7. All three cards look amazing!
    Hugs and smiles

  11. Wow Susan these are really lovely. Wow do I love them all but especially the sailboat card it is stunning.

  12. These are all gorgeous!! I love the butterfly/tree idea! I would never think of something like that! Also I like that you put detail into the color the botton holes were! 🙂

  13. Oh goodness, Susan…these are fabulous!! Each is so different from each other, and I cannot decide a favorite!

  14. Susan, why just the week’s Designer? Initially I thought it was for the season and not just for the week. Who do I talk to about that? I need to straighten this out immediately. We need you there weekly if not more often. Your work, Susan, has always brought a smile to my face everytime I see one of your cards. If anyone were to ask who’s your favorite stamper, I wouldnt need much time to shout out “RAINY.” What’s not to understand about that? Hugs

  15. Great cards, so love your use of gems in the first sailing card, and the way you used the butterfly with the stamp on the last cards is Awesome!

  16. great simple cards!! love them!

  17. These cards are so beautiful and so unique! I love how you added sponging and gems on Father’s Day card! Really like the embossing and dimension on your last card! And what a beautiful flower you created on the second card!

  18. I love them all, but the Father’s Day is especially standing out for me!
