Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - December 2016 - Bright and beautiful

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.
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 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 15 and that card has been created by Julie Reed.  This is the card that Julie made:
Congratulations Julie.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
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 November 2016 is No 13:
and that card is by Wendy.  Well No 13 is unlucky for some but not for Wendy.  Congratulations.  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.
*****************************************
Now is the time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer for January 2017.  Unfortunately when I came back from holiday I forgot to contact last months' Guest Designer winner Lynsey so I am asking her to be a Guest Designer for January.  

This month both Wendy and Bettina asked to be a Guest Designer so they are being invited to join us in January to start off the beginning of another year of the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog.

I will be in touch with Lynsey, Wendy and Bettina shortly to give you details of the January Challenge and for you to let me know what image you would like to use for the challenge as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.
*****************************************
Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of December 2016 the challenge is:

"BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL".

Time to show you now the cards/creations made by the Design Team.

Aurora

Using the image "Hummingbirds".


Using the image "Deer Autumn".

Gloria

Using the image "Autumn Whisper".

Kym
Using the image "Lily in Christmas". 

Linda

Lozzy

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 image is called "Unicorn Love".
This image is called "Shining on". 
This image is called "Wintry Night". 

This image is called "Wreath of Nature".
A set of two images including "Midnight Raven" and "Raven Soul".

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.
**************************************************************
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 InLinkz 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.

Vannessa's Inspiration Post - Poinsettia Fairy

Good Morning and welcome to a last Ching-Chou Kuik inspiration post for the month of November! I got a FB memory pop up on my phone the other day for when I shared my very first DT card for this blog and it was dated 2 years ago! I cannot believe how quickly that tie has gone and I can't believe I have been on this DT for that long. Thank you so much to Kym for having me!

Anyway on to my card...I used the gorgeous Poinsettia Fairy for this one and used up some old papers with poinsettias on and my new poinsettia dies. I kept it fairly simple as I wanted her to really stand out!


She has been coloured in with Copics and you can read more about her here on my blogpost.

Don't forget to check out all the other gorgeous design team posts this week and why not join in the fun with our challenge this month? There are some fabulous prizes to be won!

Vannessa's Inspiration Card - Saturday 19th November 2016

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week the DT's challenge was to use red, green or both for their inspiration card, so I went with both to make another Christmas card. I have about 30 made so far and will probably still need to fair few more, so any opportunity I can I make one!

I have used the gorgeous Holly Angel for this one and went for both red and green, keeping the card fairly simple for posting!


She has been coloured in with Copics and you can read more about her here on my blogpost.

Don't forget to check out all the other gorgeous design team posts this week and why not join in the fun with our challenge this month? There are some fabulous prizes to be won!
