Week 258: DIAMOND

 

It's time for a new cue word and you're going to love the treasure in the gallery this week!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)


STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner their choice of either a $10 gift certificate to the online store OR 2 ARTplorations stencils!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!

Take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
