CAS Game #147 - Along the Edge + Optional Twist Inspired by a Song

Hello and welcome to a new challenge here at AAA Cards.


This challenge wants you to keep the focus of your CAS cards along one of the edges. And if you're feeling in good voice maybe you can add in the optional twist too!

Here's another look at our CAS definition:




We'll pick a top winner and some runners up!
It could be you!

Our sponsor this fortnight is CAS-ual Fridays for a $25 gift code to their store.


Thank you CAS-ual Fridays!


As well as the 1st place prize from our sponsor we also offer the winner the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future AAA Cards Challenge.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Angie Cimbalo. Have you seen her blog - HERE? Yes - well you'll know that it's full of amazing inspiration then; No - you need to get on over and take a look!


Loving the metallic look and the way the polka dots swirl along the bottom of her card.

The AAA Cards DT have made some awesome Along the Edge CAS cards to inspire you - and some of them may even have broken out into song too!

The Winners Circle #145: One Image + Positivity

It's time to showcase our fabulous prize winner and runners up for Game # 145

Thank you for all your gorgeous cards, our gallery was filled with the 
most single image cards and that empty white space we so love here at AAA Cards.

The challenge theme was chosen by Jane and she has picked a winner.

1st place
and winner of a  Precious Remembrance Shop Sketchy Alphabet stamp set:

#17 Theresa P


This card just shone out for me with its beautiful sketchy single daisy image. I love the overall simplicity of the card design, the image, the minimal colours and the fabulously uplifting sentiment. CAS at its best!

Congratulations Theresa
 please contact Jane with your details - aaacardchallenge@gmail.com


Top Three 

 In order of entry

#9 Sentimental Sue



A great choice of a single image stamp and loads of that all important empty white space.





A double delight! Both cards using a super cute single image with added interest provided by the inked background which doesn't compromise the lovely empty white space.




A perfect example of how a single image on a very CAS card can still be exceptionally appealing to the eye. Love it!

Congratulations to you all, please grab our winners badge to display on your blogs.

Our current Challenge #146 is Made in Minutes + Summer and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

 We'd love to see how you interpret this theme and come visit your blogs, 
so don't delay, get crafting!

That reindeer is really rocking Christmas and so does all that empty white space rock our Maxi White Space theme.

#34 Rachel Jay


Another fabulous choice of stamp set. The mini trio of trees allows for Maxi White Space.

#98 Izzy Scrap



The embossed tree and cute little mouse are just so appealing and this card also has great understanding of empty white space.

CAS Game #145 - One Image + Optional Twist Positivity

Hey!

Time for a new challenge here at AAA Cards. And also a little reminder about our CAS definition and what we mean by 'white' space. The key for us is the EMPTY bit, so please no embossing, patterns or textured card on your CAS cards.

Because we love having you play along with us and want everyone to be in with a chance to win Maaike has made a little video for you to watch all about that empty white space - HERE.



So on to the new challenge:


We'll pick a top winner and some runners up!
It could be you!

And my tip for this theme is - keep the one image small to allow for plenty of empty white space!


Our sponsor this fortnight is Precious Remembrance Shop and their prize is their Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.


Precious Remembrance Shop


As well as the 1st place prize from our sponsor we also offer the winner the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future AAA Cards Challenge.

Our very talented and well known Guest Designer for this challenge is Sharon from frommycraftdesk.  Here's her beautiful take on the challenge:


One gorgeous image with a stencilled background that doesn't interfere with all that smooth empty white space.

And of course all the AAA Cards DT have also made One Image CAS cards to inspire you. I won't mention that EMPTY white space again .........
