Welcome to the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog

Today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY as it is the launch of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
My name is Kym and I am the Design Team Leader.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Ching-Chou Kuik is a very talented lady who creates such wonderful images.  These are available at her Etsy Store at:

Here you will find a wonderful selection of images which include witches, spooky, gothic, cats, dogs, birds, insects, various animals, mermaids and the ocean.  Throughout the month new images will be added to the Etsy Store so please make sure you check it out frequently.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In addition to the Etsy Store there is a Facebook Group where the Design Team share their cards/creations but then anyone that creates something with Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps can show their cards/creations too.  The Facebook Group can be found at:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
There are four members of the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Design Team and they are:

The Design Team members will have an allocated day of the week and they will show you a card/creation that they have made using one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On 1 October 2014 there will be a monthly challenge starting here on this blog.  The rules of the Challenge Blog will be simple:

(1)  You need to link to your card and NOT YOUR BLOG. 

(2)  You may combine our challenge with any other challenges but you MUST make a link back to this Challenge Blog.  If there is no link your entry will be removed from the list.

(3)  NO backlinking is allowed (eg entering a card/creation into the challenge which has been previously shown on your blog).

(4)   The challenge will start on the 1st day of the month at 12.05AM GMT and will end two days before the end of the month at 12.05AM GMT.  This will facilitate a winner being picked before the next challenge starts.

(5)  There will be a limit of THREE entries per person.  Any additional entries will be removed.

(6)  Any digital stamp/rubber stamp image is allowed but if you use an image available from Ching-Chou Kuik's Etsy Store you will gain another entry into the challenge - now who wouldn't want more chances to win?  If you use a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp from her Etsy Store you will need to link to your main blog only for this.

(7)  Please TURN OFF Word Verification on your blogs.  It makes it so difficult for Design Team members to comment.

(8)  The lucky winner picked by will win 2 digital images from the Etsy Store of their choice

(9)  Most of all - have fun!!!

These rules will be pinned to the blog sidebar for ease of reference.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In between the days that you will see cards/creations from the Design Team you will see:

(1)  Details of any new images that will be available in the Etsy Store
(2)  Details of any special offers that will be available at certain times of the year.

The Design Team also think it would be a nice idea throughout the month to showcase cards/creations that are entered into the challenge or added as inspiration onto the Facebook Group.  When I first started out in cardmaking I would have loved to have seen my cards on a blog so we are sure many of you crafters will enjoy it to.

Seeing these cards/creations will help to inspire others.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As you will see from this post there is going to be a lot going on throughout the month.

Ching-Chou Kuik and the Design Team hope you will join in with the challenge and also with the Facebook Group.

Happy crafting!!
