A little earlier than normal but today sees the start of our new challenge.

For the month of July 2019 the challenge is:

"MAKE YOUR OWN 
BACKGROUND".

This month we are delighted to have back Geesje as our Guest Designer.  This is the beautiful card she has made using the image "Lotus in June":
We are also pleased to welcome back Wendy, Facebook Design Team member who has joined us again this month.  She has made a teabag holder using the image "Black Haired Lady":
Time to show you now the cards/creations made by the Blog Design Team.

Using the image "Spring"

Using the image "Sunflower Night".

Using the image Pirate, Skeleton, Rose

Using the image "Longing for"

Using the image "Sinking Moon"

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 "Black Haired Lady".  In the set you will get a black-and-white image as well as a grayscale image. 

This image is called "Ivy Mermaid".
This image is called "Furever Love".  In this set you will get two different levels of GRAYSCALE image.

This image is called "Seashell".  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.

June 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 3 and that card was created by Suze.  This is the beautiful card that Suze made:
Congratulations Suze.

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 June 2019 is:
No 5 and that card has been created by Kathy - Myasperations.  This card is stunning and Kathy also put instructions on her blog post on how she made the card which is helpful when other people may struggle with making different style cards.

Congratulations Kathy.  

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.
  The name of the Guest Designer for August 2019 is:

GALE.

I will be in touch shortly Gale with details of the challenge topic for the challenge for August.

That's all for today.  

Make sure you pop back on Saturday as July's challenge will be starting - yes it is not the 1st of the month until Monday but I am not around on that day so I thought it better to start the challenge early rather than late.
