Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - June 2018

 Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.


To enter this challenge you need to use a rubber stamp or digital stamp (black-and-white/grayscale or partially pre-coloured). 

Just coloured in images are NOT allowed.
NO fully digital cards are allowed. 

Before I start telling you the names of last month's winners and the new challenge topic I have some news to share with you.

Very sadly Vannessa has decided that June is her last month on the Blog DT. We thank her for all her beautiful creations over the last 3.5 years and wish her well for the future.
 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. 

The winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 11 and that card has been created by Belinda.  This is the card that Belinda made:
Congratulations Belinda.

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 May 2018 is No 5:
and that card is by Gale.

Congratulations Gale.  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 no-one has asked to be a Guest Designer for July 2018 so we will not have one for the July challenge.

You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
This is a set called "Fantasy Fairy Set 1".  In this set you will get three GRAYSCALE images called "Red Poppy", "Merbutterfly Fairy Freedom" and "Green Dragonfly".
This image is called "Dandelion Fairy Kingdom".  In this set you will get two different levels of grayscale images.
This image is called "Lucky Clover".  In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.

This set is called "Hello Natural Set 3".  In this set you will get three garyscale images:  Silentness, ShihTzu and The Coming Storm.

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.

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 Linky Tools 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.
