Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - October 2017

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

Just to give you a "heads up" that this month's challenge is a VERY special challenge.
Yes it is amazing to think that we are celebrating our 3rd anniversary of the Monthly Blog Challenge on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog.

As it is our third birthday there will not be just one Monthly Challenge Winner but THREE 
Monthly Challenge Winners as well as the Artist Choice Award Winner picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.

It would be lovely to see you taking part in our challenge in the October 3rd anniversary celebrations.
*****************************************
Before we get onto the celebrations I need to tell you about the winners for the September 2017 Challenge.
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 10 and that card has been created by MICHELLE.  

This is the card that Michelle made:
Congratulations  Michelle.

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images (I shall be around 6/10/17 onwards).  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 September 2017 is No 3:
and that card is by LYNSEY.  Congratulations.  

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images (I shall be around 6/10/17 onwards).  

Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
*****************************************
Now is the time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer for  November 2017.

The lucky winner is NELIDA.  

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 October 2017 the challenge is:

"
HALLOWEEN/FRIGHT NIGHT".
First off it is time to show you the cards/creations for the Guest Designer for this month.  This month we are lucky to have NELIDA as our Guest Designer and this is the card that she has created using the image called "Dark Moon":
Also we have Wendy from the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Group Design Team making a card for us.  She has used the image"Exotic Halloween":

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 "October Lullaby". 
This image is called "Autumn Rose".

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.
**************************************************************
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 InLinkz 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.
