Challenge rules

Revised January 2019 - We run our challenge for fun in our spare time. It is your responsibility if entering to make sure you check our challenge rules, it is not our responsibility to read your posts and remind you if you fail to comply. If you do not follow the rules we will simply ignore your entry.

1) We are a stamping challenge and stamping must be the focal/predominant element of your work. Conventional rubber/acrylic stamps are our preference but we will accept digital images, but pre-coloured digital images and toppers are not acceptable.

2) When we look at your work we must see a clear connection to the theme within your stamping.


3) Your post, not your blog must be entered into Inlinkz and Stamping Sensations mentioned with a link back to this blog. Entries on third party host sites other than Blogger are eligible providing there is a working link to our blog - it is your responsibility to check there is a working link back to us. 

4) Your post must give details of what stamp/s you have used and a brief explanation of how you made your piece of work. This helps us and also gives inspiration to others. Entries containing just a piece of work and list of challenges will not be eligible.


5) A coloured stand alone page is not eligible


6) Entries must be new pieces of work, not back linked (ie. dated prior to the challenge start date) and can be combined with other challenges.

7) You can enter our challenge up to three times with any type of card/s or projects providing they follow the challenge theme.

8) Any entries not meeting these requirements will be ineligible and we will NOT comment on your entry or enter them into the prize draws.

9) All prizes must be claimed within seven days of  winners being published and we reserve the right to carry unclaimed prizes over to future challenges.


Following EU guidelines, minors entering the challenge will not be selected for winners or top 3 spots in order to protect their identities and DT's may prefer not to comment on such entries.

Stamps only? Are prominently used digis okay?

Sally H said...

We are open to entries from all over the world

It is fine to use digis but please make sure there is stamping that we don't have to hunt for! Hope this helps!

Hi...are altered projects with stamping allowed? Thanks.

Lynne K said...

Hi Rupa, sorry we have only just seen your comment. Yes, altered projects with stamping are most certainly allowed! We love to see different things, not just cards, and we welcome all kinds of projects as long as stamping is included on them.

Hello, I would love to join your challenge and was just wondering if Art Journal pages are accepted as long as all of the rules are adhered too? I'm a bit unsure as the rules reference cards and projects specifically and having looked through your site I haven't seen art journal entries. Thanks very much for your help and I look forward to your reply! J 😊

Sally H said...

As long as they follow the rules and have some stamping on them, Art journal pages are fine, J. 'Projects' tends to refer to anything that isn't a card.

Thanks so much 😁. It's so nice to be able to join your challenge, wishing you a great weekend! J 😊

Do I have to have my own blog to enter your challenge?

Lynne K said...

We prefer it if you enter via your own blog, as we may not be able to access or comment on other photo hosting sites. However, if you have a Flickr account, or are a member of Splitcoast Stampers https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/, we can accept entries through those. Hope that helps!
