December challenge - Anything Goes with a stamp

Welcome to our December challenge, where did this year go ?

We know so many of you are extra busy this time of year so we are keeping the theme nice and simple...........

********Anything goes with a stamp********

Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.......

We are a stamping challenge so must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote.........the one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. 

Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. 

If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news. Her are the great prizes from them this month, one of the new clear stamp sets, a new release die set and a slapstick favourite.........................

 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 Create and Craft TV as well as craft shows across the UK. The prize is a £10 store voucher.

Sizzix, there's no bigger or better place for craft materials, custom dies and machines that can die-cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt and foil plus much more. The prize is a set of dies.

And a pair of tickets to the February Hobbycraft show in Manchester.

And don't forgot the DT are always on the lookout for our next Guest Designer from entries using Penny Black stamps.
