How to To Play

We encourage you all to visit each other's blogs and leave a comment, it means a lot!

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
We reserve the right to delete any entries that do not follow all of these guidelines

  1. I would love to join, but my blog is so many years old I don't know if it still works. Can I join without a blog?
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Marion. You don't need a blog to join in; you just need a way to add the photograph of your card into the Linky e.g. using an Instagram post, or something like Flickr or Splitcoast Stampers. However, not all of the design team have access to Instagram, Flickr or Splitcoast stampers accounts, so you may not receive a comment from us if one of those is used. I hope that helps.

  2. can i use my uploads on Pinterest as a Linky way to play? Thanks

    1. Hi there. Yes, that should be fine to link up via Pinterest. If members of the Design Team don't have an account I'm not sure if they will be able to comment but as long as you can link up with the photo it should be fine - Anita

  3. Can we use any stamp or image from any company? X X

    1. of course! Can't wait to see you link up xx

    2. I've done my card and I'm trying to link it up. Can I post it on Facebook with a # (hashtag)? What would the #or @ be please? X X
