Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog Design Team

Some changes have taken place over at the Ching-Chou Kuik's Monthly Challenge Blog.

Three Design Team members have left the Monthly Challenge Blog and teamed up with Collette Landwer to form the "Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Design Team (DT)".

The members of the Facebook Group DT are:
Collette
Fernanda
Helen 
Sylvia

This meant that we were three members down for the Challenge Blog Design Team so very kindly three people that entered the Design Team call a few months back accepted a place on the Challenge Blog Design Team.

Please welcome to the Challenge Blog Design Team:

Alica, Dianne and Linda join the Challenge Blog Design Team and will work alongside:
and myself (Kym Upshaw).

I am a Design Team Member but also have the role as the Design Team Leader for the Challenge Blog.

This is the image that Ching-Chou Kuik has made with all our badges together.  
Doesn't it look fantastic??

On the Ching-Chou Kuik Monthly Challenge Blog there will still be:
  • the monthly challenge
  • daily inspiration posts from the Design Team members on Weeks 1, 2 and 3
  • daily "showcase" cards/projects on Weeks 4 (and 5 if there is one!!) from fellow crafters that have used an image from Ching-Chou Kuik's Etsy Store and entered it into the Monthly Blog Challenge, shared on the Facebook Group or entered into the Facebook Monthly Challenge.
So you can see it is exciting times ahead for Ching-Chou Kuik and her Design Teams, both on the Blog and on Facebook.

Make sure you keep on popping over to the Challenge Blog for details of the new challenge, to see daily inspirations posts (weeks 1, 2 and 3), to see details of any new releases/sales information or to see cards/creations that have been showcased (Weeks 4 and 5).

Happy New Year

Here is a card I have used using a Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Definance" by Charmaine Flannery.  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers, tore around the image and then inked with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink.
  
The backing papers I have used are from Bearly Mine Designs "Simply Stripes" and "The Boys Zone".  If you haven't heard, Bearly Mine Designs is shutting down at the end of the year so Donna is having a 50% off sale at the moment on digital sets so hurry on over and grab a bargain.
I have used a Dutch Doobadoo clock stencil and popped it through my Grand Caliber to get the embossed effect and then brush over a yellow Pan Pastel and edged with a brown Pan Pastel and cut out.  I have only used one of the sides of the clock.  You'll have to wait and see what I did with the other half!!

I have used my Visible Image "Time after Time" stamps and stamped the word "time" on some card and stamped the clock face onto the yellow Simply Stripes backing papers.

I have finished the card off with some lace, some ribbon I won at my recent craft crop, stamped sentiment and some X-cut die-cut cogs which I have coloured with my Promarkers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap - Always anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut Patterned Paper December Challenge - Anything goes
Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge - Anything goes
Creative Fingers - Anything goes
QKR Stampede - Lots of layers
