Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - October 2019 πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

Let the celebrations begin as today sees the 5th anniversary of the Blog Challenge and Facebook Challenge starting.  

This is an AMAZING achievement.

This achievement is down to all you crafters that take part in the Blog Challenge or Facebook Challenge or both, to the wonderful Design Team members past and present that have helped to promote these challenges and Ching-Chou Kuik's images and finally to the stunning images that Ching-Chou Kuik makes for us to use.

To celebrate this wonderful achievement there will be FIVE random winners for the Blog Challenge and FIVE random winners for the Facebook Challenge.  Each of the random winners will win three single images (not sets) from the Etsy Store.

There will also be the normal Artist Choice Award Winners for the Blog Challenge and the Facebook Challenge as well as the normal two Top 2 Winners on the Facebook Challenge.
Ching-Chou Kuik has agreed that everyone that takes part in the Blog Challenge or the Facebook Challenge will receive the above image "Dark Moon" FREE as a thank you for entering our 5th anniversary celebrations.  

Please note:  
  • it is only the image "Dark Moon" that is being given to all people that take part in the Blog Challenge or the Facebook Challenge 
  • the free image will be sent to you at the end of the Blog Challenge and at the end of the Facebook Challenge.
Here are some DT inspirations using the free image "Dark Moon":

So onto business.  Who wants to know what the topic is for the October 2019 Blog Challenge?
 For the month of October 2019 the challenge is:

eg black, orange, purple and green.

First off it is time to show your our last Guest Designer card as we have decided to stop this role each month.  This beautiful card has been created by Geesje who subsequently is now a full-time member of the Blog Design Team:
Time to show you now the cards/creations made by the Blog Design Team.

Using the image "Dark Moon" Freebie Image given to those entering this challenge
or the Facebook Ching Chou Kuik Challenge

Using the image "Pick a Pumpkin - Greyscale" (this image comes in a set along with the image "Not Just a Pumpkin - Greyscale") 

Using the image "Wicked Musing"

 Using the image "Dark Moon"

Using the image "Golden Fall"

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 "Sweet Pal".  
You will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself. 

This set of images is called the "Hello Autumn Set".  

In this set you will get three black-and-white images called "Autumn Harvest", "Autumn Falls" and "Autumn Breeze Fairy".
This set is called "Autumn Pumpkins".  

In this set you will get TWO greyscale images, "Pumpkin Pixie" and "The Perfect Pumpkin".
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. 

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.
