July's Creative Challenge- In the Home

Hello, and welcome to July's challenge, with a brand NEW prize!, and a GUEST Designer!
  Thank you for joining in last month. Gorgeous creations.

  This month we are giving YOU an opportunity to join our Creative Team for a month, and get to use The Artistic Stamper stamps, and be posted on this blog, and on social media. Come and create and be in it to win it!

This month the theme is In The Home and can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz 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.

We will pick a winner early next month from the entries, so get your thinking caps on, bring out your inks and stamps, and join in!
In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook just for fun.
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join.
For inspiration, here are the team's creations.

Our Guest Designer is Karen Sessions. Please welcome her, and watch out for another post later in the month.

For this months new challenge I have decided to do a project that my very good friend will be happy about!!...candles!!..she is obsessed with buying candles, so I thought I would decorate one for her and give it to her as a present. I stamped some circles from the DECAY JOURNALING stamp set, then more stamping from the GRID BACKGROUND and the CALLIGRAPHY MAT 12 stamps.

i then spritzed it with different inks and then transferred this to my candle using wax paper. I love it and will be doing more for presents.


Hello everyone, Titbelsoeur here with a Home-sweet-home card for you !
You know how I love Architecture stamps, mostly door ones. And I also love the Harlequin Backgrounds stamp from the Mini Backgrounds # 2 size A6 plate, I have then used 2 of my favourite stamps to make this card. I have stamped Harlequin with Distress ink that I have spritzed with water to have this watercolour effect. And I have painted the door with watercolours. Home Sweet Home A5 © Kathleen Fullman as a sentiment, some black pen lines on the edges... Et voilĂ  !

Hello, I'm Karen and I feel so honored to have been asked to contribute to this months challenge reveal post.  The July theme, "In the Home" seems so fitting as most of us have been isolating at home due to the pandemic.   Hopefully, my bright little neighborhood card will lift your spirits just a little.  Good Luck & Happy Crafting!


To create more layers for added dimension, separate the roof and chimney from the house and mount with foam tape.   Next, use a craft knife to slice around the door so that it opens and hinges on one side.  By selectively cutting into the spiral rose background design, I carefully cut a shape to resemble a cloud and a single rose stamped in yellow for the sun.

Have a Happy Creative Month

The words on Karen’s card are so true and one of the reasons to craft; it fills my soul and leaves a contentment that is absent from life
