Challenge #476 - Use a Stencil

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our latest challenge which is a Recipe challenge. 

Unfortunately, we are seeing more cards in our gallery that are NOT Clean and Simple. We do ask that you check our guidelines for our challenge but here is a reminder -

Less is More is a Clean and Simple challenge, but what does clean and simple (CAS) mean and what are we looking for in your cards?
One main focal point
Lots of clean / open / non-patterned / non-textured space (often called 'white space' although not necessarily white) Space with NO PATTERN and NO TEXTURE on it
Minimal or NO layers
Minimal embellishments
Quick and easy to recreate
Cards that comply with our Glossary of Terms

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

To be eligible for showCASe choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.

New work only please.


  1. A real challenge for me this time. I don't have that much stencils, but one could be enough I think. So I took my Apple Blossom stencil and made my card. Hope it is CAS enough. Have a nice weekend you all, Ankie

  2. this is a real challenge for me, stencils are not my thing but i'll try to make a card anyway. Beautiful DT cards.
