Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - November 2017

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.
As mentioned anyone that entered that used an image from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store would get a second entry into the draw. 
As the October Challenge celebrated THREE YEARS of the Inspiration and Challenge Blog there will not be one Monthly Challenge winner, not two but three!!

The FIRST winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 5 and that card has been created by Tracey.  This is the card that Tracey made:
The SECOND winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 7 and that card has been created by Jacki.  This is the card that Jacki made:
The THIRD winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:

Congratulations  Tracey, Jacki and Monika.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
Every month there is an "Artist's Choice Award".  The winner of this award will be picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.  To be in with a chance of winning this award you need to use one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps from her Etsy Store for your card/creation.  At the end of the month Ching-Chou Kuik will look at all those cards/creations using one of her digital stamps from the Etsy Store and pick one winner that will get the "Artist's Choice Award" and will also get to pick 5 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award" for October 2017 is No 9:
and that card is by Susan.  

Congratulations Susan.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
Unfortunately nobody asked to be a Guest Designer for December 2017.  

Maybe it is because we are looming up to a busy time of the year.
Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of November 2017 the challenge is:

First off it is time to show you the cards/creations for the Guest Designer for this month.  This month be are lucky to have Nelida as our Guest Designer and this is the card that they have created using the image called "Calling for snow":

She has used the image called "Christmas Tree".

The "rules" of the monthly challenge are very basic and can be found in the blog sidebar or in a page at the top of the blog.

It would be lovely if you could play along with the challenge this month.
You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
 This image is called "So Long". 

 The set is called "Grayscale Digital Colouring Set 1".  

This image is called "Dahlia".

This image is called "Autumn Dragonflies".

This image is called "Under the Moonlight".

There is an amazing array of beautiful digital stamps in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store.

Why don't you pop on over and take a look?
There is also a Facebook Group where all new members are very welcome. The Facebook Group can be found HERE.  Here crafters will share their creations made with a Ching-Chou Kuik image.  On the Facebook Group there will also be the details of the monthly Facebook Challenge and details of any sales etc.
Ching-Chou Kuik is now a proud sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group.

Why not pop on over and take a look.
Over at Kit and Clowder you will find details of various on-line classes that you can buy and participate in.  Ching-Chou Kuik is one of the sponsors.  

If you want to find out a bit more about colouring techniques pop on over to Kit and Clowder and have a look.
Don't forget if you would like to be a Guest Designer for a forthcoming challenge please remember to add "GDT" after you name in the InLinkz or add a comment in the comment box.

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  

Thank you for your understanding.
