September challenge

Good morning to you all, as you will know from the post below we are starting our September challenge a few days early to bridge the gap following the unavoidable premature end to the last challenge.

This month our theme is......

******Feminine******

We would like to see creations suitable for ladies and girls, the occasion can be any you choose, all we ask is that the focal element is hand stamped (or digital) to reflect the theme. Please ensure you check our challenge rules here.

As well as our main prize of a £25 store voucher from Stamp Addicts, we also have two more prizes which were kindly donated by one of our regular entrants, so that will be three lucky winners in total.


Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as exhibiting at craft shows across the UK.

  
Carla from 'carlasknutselatelieeke' blog is our Guest Designer this month and has made this lovely card to share with us.......


More inspiration from the Design Team, please do pop along too their individual blogs to see how they created their cards......

Update on August challenge

It seems the gremlins have been at work in the Linky system and the link up for August cannot be recovered. We can only apologise to all of those who had entered and hope you will understand that this is beyond our control. This means we cannot select our favourites or winners for the month of August.

So our plan is to start the September challenge a few days earlier on Thursday 1st September. And to try and make up for the disappointment we will be adding some extra prizes for the month and hope you will share your creations with us.

August challenge

Morning everyone, we hope you are ready for our new challenge and for the month of August we would like you to join us and.......

******Make it Magical******

So many possibilities, Fairies, Dragons, Gnomes, Unicorns, Mythical characters, show us what's magical in your world. But can we please give you a gentle reminder that as our challenge name suggests we are a stamping challenge......that means stamping must form the main and focal elements of your work and reflect the theme, a stamped sentiment with for example dies or stencilling is not sufficient.  You can check our challenge rules here.

There's a super prize on offer, these beautiful Fairy Hugs stamps.


There's lot's of magic going on with the fabulous Design Team inspiration, do pop to their individual blogs to see how they created their DT pieces......
