December Challenge ~ Home For Christmas

Hi everyone!

Another month has flown by and it's the start of a brand new challenge ~ so, welcome to a new month at The Artistic Stamper and we really hope you'll join in!!

Firstly, we would like to say thank you to everyone for all your fabulous entries that you submitted in last month's Anything Goes challenge. We had so many wonderful creative pieces from you all and were overwhelmed with the amount of entries we received. We will be announcing one very lucky winner in the next few days, so make sure you check back to see if it's you!!

During November, we had the pleasure of having the very talented Joanna King join us as our Guest Designer and on behalf of the team, Jennie and I would like to say a big thank you to Joanna, for all her hard work and for the stunning creations that she made and shared with us. In December, we're saying hello to the very lovely and extremely talented Mel Hookham, as our Guest Designer, and we're really looking forward to seeing all her gorgeous artwork, here on the blog.

The new challenge for December is HOME FOR CHRISTMAS and the whole team are looking forward to seeing all the wonderful and varied creations that you submit. To join in with this challenge is simple; make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubberstamping. Pop back here to link up using the Froggy at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge. As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive £15 worth of The Artistic Stamper stamps of your choice plus the Kling On to mount them onto. And don't forget....if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!!!!

If you do need any inspiration, then look no further than a couple of our Creative Team's stunning creations for this month's challenge.

Sioux decided to make an amazing quadruple ATC display.

Stamps used: Mini Christmas 1 plate

Jennie has made a wreath for Christmas... what door isn't complete without one?
 Ink a tag using red and gold Distress Stains. Die cut Tim's Holiday Wreath, and simply add shades of Green Distress ink, with a slight dab of a metallic Distress stain. Add red stickles for berries, and a Merry Christmas stamp.

We hope you will join in with this month's challenge and we're really looking forward to seeing your interpretation of our theme and all your amazing creations and artwork. Please, don't forget to add a comment when you post your entry.

I hope you all have a happy and very creative month.
See you soon...

I think I've taken the challenge theme a bit more literally than the design team, but hey, there's nothing wrong with that!
