Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - May 2019

I am posting the new challenge a little earlier than normal due to other commitments tomorrow.

For the month of May 2019 our challenge is:

"LOVELY LACE".
The first card I have to show is from our Guest Designer for May Geesje.  

Geesje has created this beautiful card with the image "Spring Dreaming":
Here is an altered wooden house project that Wendy, Design Team Member on the Facebook Group has created using the image "Poppy Love":
Time to show you now the cards/creations made by the Blog Design Team.

Using the image "Black Rose" (grayscale)

Using the image "Fall for You''


Using the image Blue Sea Illusions


Using the image "One & Only Heart"

The "rules" of the monthy 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 "Hold a Poppy".  You will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself. 
 This set is called the "Spring Spirit Set".  In this set you will get three GRAYSCALE images called "Fairy Wren", "Flowery" and "Poppy Love".
This image is called "Spring Clover".  In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.

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.
**************************************************************
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. 


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.

April 2019 - Winner's Post

 Thank you to all those crafters that entered last month's 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 13 and that is Margaret.  This is the card that Margaret has made: 
Congratulations Margaret.

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 April 2019 is No 16 and that card was created by AJ.  This is the card she created:
Congratulations AJ.  

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.
