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

Hello crafters.  Yet another month has whizzed by.
Here at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog and the Monthly Facebook Group we are getting VERY excited that next month the challenges will have been running for FOUR YEARS.  That is a wonderful achievement.  

To celebrate there will be:

FOUR Random winners on the Blog
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Blog
FOUR Random winners on the Facebook Group
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Facebook Group
The usual two Top 2 winners on the Facebook Group

as well as a free image for everyone that enters the Blog Challenge or the Facebook Challenge.  It is a beautiful image that Ching-Chou Kuik has given for these celebrations.  

Please note:  The free image will be given at the END of both the Blog Challenge and the Facebook Challenge.

With all those extra prizes on offer and the chance of receiving a free image you certainly all need to come and enter the challenge next month!!
 
Onto today's business.  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. 
 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 3 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 18 and that card has been created by Suze.  This is the card that Suze made:
Congratulations Suze.

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 3 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

Please note: when selecting digital stamps for a prize, stamp sets do not count as one digital stamp. You may choose individual digital stamps from a stamp set but you must clarify carefully what image you would like.
 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 August 2018 is No 9:
and that card is by Rose.  Congratulations.  

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.

Please note: when selecting digital stamps for a prize, stamp sets do not count as one digital stamp. You may choose individual digital stamps from a stamp set but you must clarify carefully what image you would like.

Now is the time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer for October 2018.

The lucky winner is Dewi.

I will be in touch shortly with details of the challenge and to ask you to pick an image from the Etsy Store to use for your card/creation as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of September 2018 the challenge is:

"THE COLOURS OF FALL
EG RED, ORANGE, YELLOW AND BROWN.

We are joined this month by Jackie Cornfield, Facebook DT Member who has created this beautiful card using the image "Love Barn Owl":

*****************************************
You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
 This set is called "Aromatic Summer".  In this set you will get a black and white digital stamp and a partially coloured digital stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.
This image is called "Towards the Sunshine".  In this set you will get a black and white digital stamp along with a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.
This image is called "Wicked in Mist".  In this set you will get a lighter and a darker grayscale image.

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.

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


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.
