Sit Back

I think I've only missed a couple of Fashionable Stamping challenges since it started but when I saw the new challenge I nearly decided to miss this one out, it's so not my genre, I don't do clean and I don't do simple! but hey ho that's what challenges are all about isn't it?  The other thing I don't do is straight and you would not believe how difficult I found it to even stick post it notes in a straight line to mask out the centre bit !  I have seen a lot of cards recently with the coloured strip across the centre so thought I'd give it a go, I used pan pastels which was maybe not the wisest thing to do as I ended up with dusty bits on the white but they came off easy enough with the eraser, anyhow this is my version of clean and simple one layer ( the dark surround is just the piece of card I used to scan it on)

Fashionable Stamping- CAS one layer


  1. Hello Joan
    I know where you are coming from re the CAS genre I am with you all the way, but I can do straight...Ha
    Your card is lovely, and would appeal to all the CAS people out there,and I am also aware it is not as easy as it looks, minimum does not equal easy that is such a fallacy.

  2. So good you chose to give our challenge at FSC a try. It is a beautiful CAS card.

  3. Anyway, apart from any issues you might have had - the card looks absolutely gorgeous! Love it. Great choice of stamp images and color. Suzanne

  4. Beautiful Joan everything looks Clean but definitely not Simple. Your coloured strip looks very straight to me in fact the whole card looks so neat and simplistic. Adorable.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

  5. Wow it's fantastic CAS card!

  6. So pleased you decided to join us at FSC with your beautiful CAS card. Love the colour strip and stamping. I agree this is not an easy quick way to make a card.

  9. Lol, I think we are all the same, - the number of times I have read the same sort of thing since that challenge went up yesterday at FSC.... but all I can say is that you have done a fantastic job here, so well done you for taking the challenge!! This looks great!

  10. I certainly cannot do clean and simple but you have mastered it with this beautiful card Joan! Hugs, Anne x
