Clean and Simple Galore

The Clean and Simple Challenge Forum on Splitcoast Stampers is holding their Autumn Design Team call by posting a series of challenges. Whether you are interested in the DT or just a fan of clean and simple (CAS) cards, be sure to check out the fun challenges and resulting amazing cards!

The first challenge is a sketch. I decided to go with a Christmas theme so I could catch up a bit on my neglected Christmas card tally:

Stamps: Snowflakes, Papertrey 'Holiday Wishes'. Cardstock: Bashful Blue. Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark. Accessories: 'Winter Wonderland' glitter EP, organdy glitter ribbon.

The second is a color challenge to create a monochromatic brown card with a touch of red:

Stamps: Autumn Greetings, Touch of Nature, Papertrey 'Mailbox Greetings'. Cardstock: Kraft. Ink: Chocolate Chip, Copic, Real Red.

The final challenge is a theme with the stampers choice of autumn holidays or Christmas:

Stamps: Papertrey 'Holiday Wishes'. Ink: Real Red. Cardstock: Textured white, Daisy D's 'Paisley Sugarplum' DP, Wild Wasabi, Real Red. Accessories: 1" circle punch, dotted grosgrain ribbon.

Both the second and third card are based on Fall To sketches from the Clean and Simple Stamping blog. If you need to jumpstart your Mojo with some versatile sketches, be sure to check out these versions, along with amazing sample cards!
