July - All Creatures Great and Small

Hello everyone, we have a new challenge for you and the theme is...............

****All Creatures Great and Small****

So much scope there, all types of Animals, Birds, Butterflies and Bugs, Wild Animals..........but please no teddy bears and fantasy creatures such as Unicorns, they are not actually animals as we all know!!

Please remember we are a stamping challenge and the focal element of your entry must reflect the theme and be hand stamped (a small stamped element added to a mainly stencilled or die cut card will not be eligble) we prefer conventional stamping but digital images are allowed. You can check our challenge rules here.


Crafty Individuals join us again as our sponsor, we know how popular their stamps are with so many of our entrants. They are an exciting web based venture into the creative world of crafts and altered art products and produce an eclectic range of unique and top quality art rubber stamps, cutting dies, masks/stencils and paper craft products. They are offering a £25 store voucher for our lucky winner.

Helen the winner of our May challenge joins us as our Guest Designer this month and has created this sweet card to share with us all...........

June - Make it Colourful

Hello all, time for our June challenge and this month our theme is...........

******Make it Colourful******

So we want to see lots of colour but please can I remind you about our challenge......the clue is in our name......Stamping Sensations !!

This means the focal element must be stamped......when we look at your entry we must see stamping centrally. Whilst we prefer conventional stamping, digital images are accepted but a small stamped sentiment, stamping in the background or something stamped and added to a mainly non stamped card will not be eligible. You can check our challenge rules here.


We are joined again by Visible Image as our sponsor. Here at Visible Image our stamp designs are unique, original and different… we love to stand out! From arty images and inspiring quotes, to super cool background stamps, we know you will enjoy creating with our deeply etched clear photopolymer stamps, made here in the UK. The lucky winner will receive a £25 store voucher.

Our Guest Designer this month is Sue with a beautiful Fairy creation, thank you Sue.
