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

 From Ching-Chou Kuik, the Design Team members and I would like to wish you all a very happy New Year and all the very best for 2019.

We have made a slight change to the Blog and Facebook Challenges in 2019.  

To make things easier - especially for me as Design Team Leader of both Design Teams - both Design Teams will have the same challenge topics each month.  This means that if you have a blog and Facebook you can easily enter both, thus giving you more chances to win.  

Today sees the start of our first challenge for 2019.

For the month of January 2019 the challenge is:

"NEW BEGINNINGS" eg New Year, new baby, new house, new job or even new crafty stash".
This month we are joined by Geesje as our Guest Designer.

Geesje has created this card using the image "Mount Fiji":
 but her creativity did not stop there as she has also made this card using the image "Mount Fuji":
We are lucky that Wendy, Facebook Design Team Member has joined in and made a beautiful card for us.  She has used the image "Boston Terrier":
Time to show you now the cards/creations made by the Blog Design Team.

Using the image "Winter Cuddle"

Using the image "Time Flies"

Using the image "Light of Hope''

Using the polar bear and bunny rabbit images from the "Sparklers Set".

Using the image "Red Poppy - Grayscale".

Using the image "Winter Cuddle"

Using the image "Polar Snow".

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 is an image called "A Gift for You".  In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.
This image is called a "Winter Cuddle".  In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.
This image is called "Winter Fox".  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.
